The future of 8point3 is in question, according to analysts. It was reported following the release of its Q1 earnings that the company, a joint venture by First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR) and SunPower Corporation (NASDAQ: SPWR), could likely be losing the former when First Solar announced it was reviewing avenues for divestiture in its interest in the company.

Following the announcement Wednesday afternoon, CAFD opened more than 11 percent lower. The stock recovered slightly, closing at $12.15.
