Canadian Solar (CSIQ) Rises Along with Solar Stocks

Tickers Mentioned:

Shares in solar stock Canadian Solar (CSIQ) rose as much as 6.5 percent during Friday’s trading on a day of modest gains across the board for solar companies. Canadian Solar was riding high on the announcement of the sale of an 8.5 megawatt solar plant to a subsidiary of BluEarth Renewables for $47.75 million.

Sale Prompts Gains, Technical Signs May Also Boost Buying

The plant, which will be named Little Creek, is the first of four scheduled projects that Canadian Solar intends to sell to BluEarth that will ultimately have a combined capacity of 38.5 MW.

"We are pleased to complete the sale and transfer of the first of four solar projects to BluEarth Renewables," said Chairman and CEO Shawn Qu. "This is an important group of projects as it helps move BluEarth closer to its goal of having C$1 billion of high-quality, long-term contracted renewable energy plants. From Canadian Solar's standpoint, this successful project sale closure allows us to redeploy resources to other projects and to further expand our pipeline, which exceeds 4.5 gigawatts."

The stock opened up just over 1 percent at $30.85 a share, but it quickly picked up momentum in early trading and worked steadily to a peak of $32.62 a share. Shares retreated from there, trading close to $32 a share into the afternoon, though volume declined sharply after the stock reached its high.

Canadian Solar had been in a steep decline since it formed a double top at the start of the month, hitting resistance at about $42.50 a share and declining once investors and traders appeared to see limited upside in the near term. Prior to Friday, Canadian Solar had declined over 27 percent in the month of March.

However, while the catalyst for today’s gains is clearly news of the sale, there are some other technical factors that point towards the current decline pushing Canadian Solar into oversold territory. The stock’s MACD line had been moving almost in unison with its signal line until recently crossing over it from below, something commonly viewed as a buy signal. What’s more, the 14-day RSI was dipping close to the key level of 30 and the 14-day stochastic RSI was already trading below 0.20, both typically viewed as signs a stock is oversold by technical traders.

Gains for Solar Across the Board After a Week of Losses

Solar stocks as a monolith were driven broadly higher on Friday as well after comments from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) indicated that tax credits for renewable energy should be extended to a meeting of renewable energy officlas.

“I think that there’s highly likely to be an extension,” he said. “There’s very strong bipartisan support for it. I’m relatively optimistic. It doesn’t mean that you guys shouldn’t be all in to make sure it happens.”

The most-prominent solar ETF, the Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) , gained just under 1 percent in Friday’s trading as solar companies across the board made modest gains on Whitehouse’s comments. This comes after a week when solar stocks were broadly down, falling throughout the week.
