    Major energy companies, including the largest U.S. nuclear power generator, are putting millions of dollars into a new political campaign to push for a tax on carbon dioxide emissions -- a measure President Donald Trump has said he opposes.

    Tariffs Won't Cloud First Solar's Outlook

    Analyst Michael Weinstein upgraded the shares to Neutral from Underperform today, and reiterated a $53 price target, arguing that the recent selloff has more than captured potential downside risk for the stock. Instead of being punished by the tariffs, First Solar "stands to benefit from tariffs on competing products." First Solar is up 0.4% to $52 in recent trading. Robert W. Baird was also optimistic about First Solar last week.

Kallo named First Solar  (FSLR) to the firm's Fresh Pick list on Monday, writing that the selloff was a 'knee-jerk negative reaction' to the news that China is changing its solar subsidy program, and that it doesn't account for the fact that First Solar's revenue visibility or its "substantial competitive advantage" over its peers. First Solar should continue to be at a significant cost advantage, even with best-in-class Chinese manufacturers, which could lead to upside to 2020 estimates, Kallo says.
