Is solar PV on the brink of a second 'gold rush'?

09 January 2014
Deutsche Bank predicts surge in demand for solar PV led by fast-expanding domestic market.

Goldman Sachs this week upgraded stock in solar power developer SolarCity to a 'conviction buy' from a 'neutral' rating, while downgrading First Solar to a 'sell'. The investment bank is realigning its position on PV solar firms, just as multiple analysts point to a "gold rush" in PV solar over the next year.

Stock in SolarCity, which finances and installs solar panels for residential and commercial clients, jumped on the news, climbing to $65.96 on Monday from $59.27 at Friday's close. The firm's stock is at an all-time high, and has almost tripled in value since early May. Conversely, First Solar stock dove almost 10 per cent on news of its downgrade.
