Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing: Upgrade
RedChip Visibility, a division of RedChip Companies, Inc. today announced that it has issued a third quarter 2009 research update on Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. (OTCBB:WEMU - News), an engineering firm specializing in international manufacturing for electronics, mechanical, fiber optic products, and solar modules.
Rahul Sowani, RedChip Research Analyst, wrote in the report:
"The market for WEMU has changed for both the contract manufacturing and solar sides of the business with the Company's AmeriSolar brand continuing to drive the top line accounting for 83% of total revenue in the third quarter. The Company has been able to establish itself in the solar module market within two years of operation and is poised to grow at double-digit rates based on its new solar orders and existing backlog."
"In 2008 WEMU shipped a total of 7.2 megawatts (MW), generating $31 million in solar revenues; and, in the first nine months of 2009 alone, the Company shipped 13 megawatts, generating solar revenues of $29.4 million -- despite the sharp fall in market prices. We expect WEMU to ship over 18 MW in 2009; and, for 2010, we estimate that the Company will be able to ship at least 29 MW," Sowani continued.
"We expect WEMU to post record results in 2010 given the Company's continued emphasis on its growing solar business coupled with improving conditions in the solar market. We are upgrading WEMU shares from Hold to a Speculative Buy rating and raising our target price to $8.00," he concluded.
