Solar City (SCTY) Rises on Acquisition

Tickers Mentioned:

Shares of the solar panel installation outlet SolarCity Corporation (SCTY) continued their ascent on Oct 16 after the company revealed they had acquired rival Zep Solar. This comes just a few days after the company raised guidance and announced they expected installations to increase 80 percent in 2014.

The sunny projections coupled with the Zep Solar buyout sent SolarCity’s stock to its all-time high. The company’s shares have risen 290 percent on the year, as SolarCity has become arguably the hottest stock in the tech sector.

This is unsurprising, as SolarCity is the brainchild of wunderkind industrialist/Wall Street golden child Elon Musk. Musk is both the Chairman of SolarCity and the CEO of electric carmaker Tesla Motors (TSLA) , whose shares have risen a whopping 443 percent this year.

The growth potential of SolarCity is beginning to dawn on investors, who have been increasingly flocking to the stock like moths to a solar-powered lightbulb. Volume on Oct 16 was four times what it normally is, with just under 12 million shares trading hands as of midday.

Particularly attractive to investors is SolarCity’s growing customer base, which increased from right over 50,000 at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012 to an estimated 82,000 as of Sept. 30.

Whether SolarCity’s shares are due to come back to Earth or are still yet to reach their apex will become clear as day when the company releases its earnings report the first week of November.

Shares of the San Mateo, Ca.-based company rose 12 percent in early trading to hit  $52.16 a share.
