Sunrun Inc (NASDAQ:RUN) is up 2.2% at $21.19 at last glance, looking to recover some of Friday's 12.3% drop -- though the shares remain on the short sell restricted (SSR) list amid recent market volatility. Unsurprisingly, the solar name's business with SVB Financial Group (SIVB) caused the negative price action, with the bank acting as one of its lenders. 

The $26 level has kept a tight lid on gains over the past month, along with the stock's 100-day moving average. Year-to-date, the equity is down 11.8%.

Moreover, Sunrun has captured the attention of put traders over the past couple weeks.

The most popular contract over this period was the March 18 put, followed by the April 25 put.

Of the 18 analysts in coverage, 14 carry a "buy" or better rating, with four a tepid "hold," while the 12-month consensus price target of $42.10 represents a 98% premium to current levels.
