Analysts: Buy American Superconductor (AMSC), Downgrade Evergreen Solar (ESLR)

Analysts are out with a few notes this morning – an initiation of coverage on American Superconductor (AMSC) with a BUY and a downgrade of Evergreen Solar (ESLR) to NEUTRAL.

According to, Piper Jaffray downgraded ESLR to Neutral for the following reasons:

– rapidly losing polysilicon cost advantage
– low visibility in financial impact of outsourcing production to Asia
– minimal balance sheet flexibility for pursuing expansion in Asia

Broadpoint AmTech Initiates Coverage on AMSC with Buy rating and $20 price target because of its exposure to the rapidly growing Chinese wind market and electric grid modernization opportunities.  AmTech also believes AMSC offers a unique solution that provides a quick time to market for new wind turbine manufacturers.
