Uni-Pixel Inc. is shattering today, down 26.00% at $27.19. The glass display and touch screen company saw its shares fall after an article published by Barron's. The article in Barron's was published last weekend but is affecting the stock today, with investors fleeing as the stock began to trend down. The article said that investors should be wary of the company as the company is "better at promoting products to investors than bringing them to market." Shares of the company lost more than $9.50 today, but are still trading well off of their 52-week low of $5.27.
SolarCity Corporation (SCTY)
SolarCity is on fire again today, up 26.06% at $44.99. The solar panel company was up 20% last week, and today shares are seeing big gains again. This time SolarCity is bouncing on news of a deal with Goldman Sachs. The deal with Goldman is for $500 million in financing SolarCity roofs. The lease-financing agreement will help the company build about 110 megawatts of solar power systems with little or no up-front cost for homeowners and businesses. Management said the Goldman backing will also help consumers see that solar energy is a stable and reliable asset to invest in. SolarCity set another 52-week high of $46.50 intraday.
