SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR) has shown a strong rally over the past few sessions, starting on April 21 when Brean Capital initiated the company with a Buy rating and $32 price target.

That rally continued on April 22 when Goldman announced that SunPower was among its top picks in the solar sector going into Q1 earnings.

Moving to Wednesday morning, Bank of America hopped aboard the bullish band wagon, upgrading SunPower to a Buy rating while giving it a $37 price target. Not long after, a headline broke where Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) and SunPower announced a partnership where Google would commit to a $100 million residential solar lease deal.

The news took shares up 7.76 percent Wednesday morning, briefly hitting $32 before calming down slightly.

Other solar names have also recently caught a bid, including SunEdison (NYSE: SUNE) which rallied sharply on Tuesday's session after some bullish comments from David Einhorn.
