1. Solar demand is growing just about everywhere.

3. Solar is getting more efficient.
4. Solar stocks are at very low prices.
5. Oil is FINITE
6. Burning Oil is not good for the planet

Assuming you share the planet with me, you should agree that we should stop doing things that are bad for the planet – our home.
This should apply pressure to reduce fossil fuel usage and increase clean energy tech.
If you are employed at a fossil fuel company, you should want to transition to clean tech not only to avoid damaging your home (idiots), but to prepare for the times when fossil fuels are no longer retrievable. Unless you could devise a way to suck carbon out of the air.
More pressure to change to clean tech.
Now, regarding solar investments.
Solar stocks are trading near all time lows, even as most of the market has rebounded – and solar has grown FASTER than the market.
Its clean fossil fuel interests are shorting solar stocks.
Is this not the PERFECT time to invest in solar?
There will be some losers – there will be companies that fail.
SPWR and FSLR should be targets.
“The BGOV Barometer shows that, over the five decades since John F. Kennedy was inaugurated, $1,000 invested in a hypothetical fund that tracks the Standard & Poorâ€™s 500 Index (SPX) only when Democrats are in the White House would have been worth $10,920 at the close of trading yesterday.
Thatâ€™s more than nine times the dollar return an investor would have realized from following a similar strategy during Republican administrations. A $1,000 stake invested in a fund that followed the S&P 500 under Republican presidents, starting with Richard Nixon, would have grown to $2,087 on the day George W. Bush left office.”
CIT Group shares lost 99 cents today on news that the commercial lender is again near collapse.
It would be a risky play, to jump in when the water is the hottest.
But if the price of shares drops below 50 cents – I’m in.
Not for much, but its a gamble I’d be willing to make*
*Don’t follow my advice – I’m a rookie
This is a company who’s stocks were trading in the $40 range within the last two years.
Obviously, if the company survives without going into bankruptcy, the shares will rebound to some degree (eventually)
Two things led me to invest in stocks for the first time last November.
1. Buy Low
The market was at the lowest point it had been in the last 10 years.
The DOW was in the low 7,000 range.
Almost everything was down drastically.
2. An intelligent, democrat was elected.
At that point, I was convinced we’d see an upswing in the economy – although I had no idea how long before we’d see upward movement.
It turns out, that wasn’t the low point.
March the DOW managed to hit the mid 6,000’s.
Today, the DOW is in the mid 9000’s, and everything I invested in is in the black.
Do I have the midas touch?
No. It was simply a good time to get in.
I’m betting on the US.
How stupid are conservatives? They think the deficit has grown under Obama. Can you believe that? 1.2 trillion before Obama to half that amount this year means the deficit is growing to mentally ill conservatives. Conservatives have exclusive ownership of the idiot gene.
