Other Solar Companies Get A Lift

The news seemed to boost the stocks of other solar companies. First Solar (FSLR), which reports earnings Thursday, jumped more than 3%. Meanwhile, Daqo New Energy (DQ) surged more than 7%. And Canadian Solar (CSIQ) climbed more than 4%.

As the top-ranked company in a highly ranked group, Enphase is a leading provider of solar microinverters. Microinverters boost solar energy production, improve reliability in solar energy systems and support intelligent energy management.

Enphase also makes software to monitor energy generation and battery systems. The company focuses primarily on residential markets.

For its fourth quarter, Enphase expects revenue in the range of $680 million to $720 million. The midpoint of $700 million is above estimates of $655 million.

Enphase Stock: Demand Strong Worldwide

“Demand was strong in our markets worldwide, particularly in North America and Europe,” the company said in its press release.

“Our revenue in Europe for the third quarter of 2022 increased approximately 70%, compared to the second quarter of 2022, as countries in the region are accelerating their efforts to address rising energy prices and reliance on fossil fuel,” the company went on to say.

Enphase stock is up 47% this year.
