TerraForm Power Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP) had its price target dropped by research analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co. from $6.00 to $5.00 in a report issued on Wednesday. The brokerage currently has a “neutral” rating on the stock. JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s price target would indicate a potential downside of 60.41% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “TERP issued an investor update presentation with 3Q operating metrics and guidance for FY16. Audited financials are still on the come. FY16 revenue and EBITDA guidance were slightly below our expectations and net income was negatively impacted owing to a higher interest expense than we had expected. The 3Q cash balance was slightly higher than expected. TERP did not issue guidance for CAFD but maintains that it will be “substantially lower” than the forecast issued prior to the SUNE bankruptcy owing to factors such as loss of financial and operational support. Encouragingly, TERP expects to become operationally independent from SUNE by January, with a stand-alone org structure, independent IT, and third-party asset management and O&M providers. TERP is seeking consent from bondholders to extend a 12/2 deadline for the company to become current with its SEC filings. We are adjusting our estimates, though our price target remains $13.””
