“SEDG has latitude to raise pricing across end markets. Better yet, these price increases will flow through to microinverters, optimizers and storage,” the analyst wrote.

“As SEDG ramps storage deployments, we have visibility to 5x higher ticket prices with identical opex,” Dumoulin-Smith mentioned. “Our conversations suggest C&I sales afford richer operating margins, as well, despite lower GM."

SolarEdge Technologies believed “it has line of sight to 20-22% operating margins in core solar exiting 2023,” which represented an improvement that “is far better than understood by the Street,” the analyst further said.
