Alternative Energy Industry Returns
Alternative energy stocks have bounced back from their early year losses incurred after spectacular gains achieved in 2013. Companies have handsome annual returns on average — almost three quarters of stocks that the Roen Financial Report tracks are on the plus side for the past 12 months, and two-thirds are posting double-digit gains. Remarkably, 43 alternative energy stocks, or 19% of all companies that are being tracked, are up triple digits or better!
Fuel alternative stocks are showing out-sized gains due mostly to one stock, Plug Power Inc. (PLUG). This fuel cell company has soared since December on news of growing orders and a stock offering. PLUG is up in the quadruple-digits for the year.
Smart Grid Investment Opportunities Special Report
The reboot of the electric grid is an exciting investment opportunity that promises to be one of the biggest energy transformation stories of the early 21st century. The synergistic benefit of a transformed grid system has the potential to greatly reduce carbon emissions and other pollutants while also lowering electric costs.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance projects that by 2018 global smart grid investments should grow to $25.2 billion per year! Overall, I believe smart grid companies will prove to be an excellent long-term investment if you are in the right stocks.
