ReneSola (NYSE:SOL) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a note issued to investors on Tuesday, Zacks.com reports. The firm presently has a $1.50 price objective on the semiconductor company’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 19.05% from the stock’s previous close.
According to Zacks, “ReneSola reported a wider-than-expected loss in first-quarter 2019 and revenues surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. With the successful execution of its downstream strategy, it is currently expanding its business in the international markets of Vietnam, Canada, Poland, Hungary, France, Spain and Turkey. Its revenue growth prospects from the nation seems bleak, with the U.S. administration having imposed a tariff of 30% on the import of solar panels and modules. On the domestic front, the company believes the China rooftop solar market to be a significant space for its expansion. However, solar industry trends and market volatility along with unfavorable changes in supply and demand for solar power products throughout the value chain may pose potential threats to the business. Over the past year, its share price has underperformed its industry.”
