Pacific Crest is out upgrading SunPower (SPWRA) this morning to Outperform and raised the price target to $29, saying the recent accounting debacle has created a unique buying opportunity.

Hat tip to for the following analyst comment:

“There is considerable risk inherent in our call because the results of the accounting investigation have not been announced. However, we believe the current stock price assumes a lower margin profile on future revenue, and thus the formal result from the investigation remains the primary headwind to investing in SunPower. We believe SunPower will be an approximately 20% gross-margin business.  The firm says investors should look to 2011 revenue and earnings estimates, as the stock is fully valued on 2010 estimates. Bachman sees upside to $29, or 15x their 2011 EPS estimate of $1.93.

Shares of SPWRA are up nearly 5% in premarket trading.
