Solar Power: Is It Ready for Real This Time?

To me investing in solar is all about short periods of time because these stocks are so volatile. I read a few articles about solar lately. Costs of production are coming down because a key ingredient poly-silicon is in over abundance; price drop is 93% as of a few months ago.

This price drop has put solar energy production much closer to a breakeven. When countries in Europe started pulling the plug on government subsidies solar stocks tanked a few years ago. I'm looking SunPower ([url=]SPWR[/url]) on a pull back, like a lot stocks SPWR has been hot year to date.

GE ([url=]GE[/url]) is building a huge solar panel plant. With production costs going down and the big guys (GE - Free Report) getting in Solar power is not going away. SPWR has some big name investment house attention lately with their 5 energy plays this year. When SPWR pulls back a little I'm in.

There are others names left in solar since the industry shake out last year. Solar is still a very risky trade but there are good signs that it could be rewarding risk.

The most recent picks by «horsedentist» are:
A buy rating on SunPower ([url=]SPWR[/url]),
a buy rating on United Rentals ([url=]URI[/url]) and
a buy rating on Silver Wheaton ([url=]SLW[/url]).
