2020 Hindsight: Ten Clean Energy Stocks For 2019
My new stock list is heavily international, and partly hedged. Despite being wrong in 2019, in 2020, I’m doubling down on the thesis that there is a good chance of a bear market in the United States this year.

That's right. As of Dec 31st, 2016, I was confident that the stocks would end the year in between the high and low targets. See the original 10 for 17 article for details: www.altenergystocks.com/.../...essing_trump_1.html

It depends on my investment goals and risk tolerance. I think $REGI has the greatest potential for gains from the current price. $PEGI is probably best for a more risk adverse reader. But I don't buy that premise that I can only invest in one. You could use a brokerage like Motif and buy a basket of stocks for a single $9.95 commission. www.altenergystocks.com/.../...mall_investors.html

Ten Clean Energy Stocks For 2015: A Fine February
4 years ago

Disruptive technologies like solar always have trouble with incumbents, but I believe that solar's growing cost advantage has reached the point that utilities cannot win, they can only delay. And the worse they make the economics for grid-connected solar, the more attractive off-grid solar will become.

The smarter utilities are the ones taking the "if you can't beat em join em" tactic, and are incorporating distributed solar in their business plans by doing things like renting homeowner's rooftops for their own solar installations. The homeowner gets the rental payment and no headaches, while the utility avoids losing marketshare to a solar leasing company, and gets to ratebase the installation.

Ten Clean Energy Stocks For 2014: Spooky October

You make a good point that I should have mentioned oil prices in my discussion of PBW's recent decline.

On the other hand, what's happening to clean energy stocks in general is less relevant to my list, which is designed to invest in clean energy without the same level of risk you would get with ETFs like PBW. You'll note that my list is beating both its clean energy benchmark *and* small cap stocks in general.
