    US Solar Stocks are on a bull run

    Solar stocks have been rising rapidly in the recent months along with the general stock market and improving industry fundamentals. The buyout of Power-One (NASDAQ: PWER.DL) for a substantial premium by European giant ABB has improved the sentiment as well. While the Chinese solar stocks are still under pressure due to the bon defaults by Suntech (NYSE: STP) and LDK Solar (NYSE: LDKmore »)

  • Once-in-a-Lifetime Buy in Clean Energy

    By Paul Franke - March 4, 2013 | Tickers: AEIS, AMAT, FAN, GTAT, PWER.DL

    If you believe, like we do, fossil fuel prices will continue to outpace general inflation rates in coming years, now may be “the” best time to acquire alternative and Clean Energy investments at incredibly low, out-of-favor valuations.  As the cost of technologically advanced, clean power and energy generation continues to decline, we are on the verge of an important crossover in demand curves for renewable energy versus the traditional, consumable, combustible and finite resources of coal, oil and gas.

  • Is This Solar Equipment Provider Undervalued?

    By Shobha Narasimha - February 26, 2013 | Tickers: GTAT, LDK, VECO

    GT Advanced Technologies (NASDAQ: GTAT) is one of the largest equipment providers for the solar and LED industry. In the last year its stock price has declined more than 60%, and now is in range of its 52 week low.  A 52 week low is never a buy signal for any company--it just means investors are pessimistic about the company’s future. Let us take a look at what is more »

  • How I Sold These Stocks for a Loss, and Still Gained Almost 40%

    By Jason Hall - January 16, 2013 | Tickers: AMRC, AAPL, GLW, F, GTAT, UPL

    I wrote an article in November, laying out part of my strategy for the 2012 tax year.  Many investors were selling off big winners like Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) in order to "lock in" their gains, in many cases in fear of increased taxes on future capital gains.  I wrote another article in early December laying out why I thought that was a bad idea, going so far as to call more »

  • Is This Solar Play as Cheap as it Seems?

    By Steve Symington - December 18, 2012 | Tickers: GLW, GTAT, LDK, SSNLF, TSL, OLED, YGE

    As a starting point in my continuous search for new ideas, I often look for companies with high earnings yields and great returns on invested capital.  Why?  Companies with high returns on invested capital generally possess durable competitive advantages and demonstrate a knack for creating shareholder value. When these companies also sport high earnings yields, they represent great potential opportunities for investors to beat the market.

  • Why am I Selling These Great Companies? Maybe You Should, too...

    By Jason Hall - November 14, 2012 | Tickers: AMRC, GLW, F, GTAT, UPL

    There is substantial evidence that the best way to grow your wealth is to buy and hold stocks for years and years.  Morgan Housel (re-creating charts that super-genius Nate Silver features in The Signal and The Noise) shows in this article how the secret is buying at cheap valuations, and holding for very long periods of time.  Despite this, and my claim to be a long-term investor, I've sold more »

  • New GE Turbines Aid the Solar Industry

    By Joshua Bondy - October 4, 2012 | Tickers: FSLR, GE, GTAT, SPWR, TSL

    A major problem with the integration of solar and wind energy into the world's energy grid is the need to develop a flexible system which can deal with the daily frequent changes in weather. The amount of energy produced by solar panels varies greatly due to changes in cloud cover. Ever changing weather patterns make wind especially problematic. The ability to store the energy created from renewable sources for more »

  • Diversified Solar Energy for Your Porfolio

    By Piyush Arora - September 26, 2012 | Tickers: AMAT, GTAT, SUNE, SPWR, TSL

    Post the crash of the 2008, majority of the people around the globe either lost their jobs or had to deal with pay cuts.

  • First Solar: A Brilliant Turnaround Story in the Making

    By Maxwell Fisher - April 12, 2012 | Tickers: EXC, FSLR, GTAT, SPWR

    Solar energy could be the way of the future, but right now, solar energy stocks are not looking so hot. First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR) is down around -84% over the last year, and EPS remains negative this year. Nonetheless, I believe that this stock is going to turn around, not only because the industry is slowly catching on, but because First Solar is getting involved in community life in ways more »
