Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of ReneSola Ltd. (NYSE:SOL) from a hold rating to a buy rating in a report released on Wednesday. Zacks Investment Research currently has $2.75 price target on the stock.
According to Zacks, “ReneSola continues to benefit from a steady flow of contracts from both domestic and international customers. The company is making strong efforts to drive higher profitability and cash flow. Again, according to an EIA report, solar will be the fastest growing renewable energy source, which translates that the company has a bright prospect in solar in the near future. However, management has lowered its full-year earnings guidance for the company, which disappoints us. Going forward, failing to shift to higher-margin markets and exposure to exchange rate fluctuations will likely hurt the company’s performance.”
Separately, Roth Capital reaffirmed a sell rating and set a $3.25 price objective (down from $5.00) on shares of ReneSola in a research report on Thursday, December 1st.
