Stock Tip

DISCLOSURE: I AM NOT A CERTIFIED FINANCIAL ADVISOR OR STOCK BROKER.

That said, I do my own investing by doing in-depth research. If I had to give a tip it would be to look at wind and solar especially wind. Not because they’re “green” but because the nuclear incident in Japan will drive people, companies and governments to think twice about nuclear as an option but they want clean and they want to remove their dependence on foreign oil and Wind, Solar and Wave tech is the way to go.

If you are interested, do some digging on Vestas Wind in Denmark (there’s a pink sheet ADR you can buy – VWDRY) SunTech (STP), Trina Solar (TSL), China Wind (CWS) a parts supplier to the Wind Power industry, and Ocean Power Tech (OPTT).

Investing involves significant risk of loss. Do your own research and make your own decisions.

My tip is intended as a starting point for research not as an indication of what I’m buying or what you should buy.

DO NOT TRY TO SUE ME LATER WE HAVE A NICE LAWYER WHO READS THE BLOG AND I’LL PAY HIM TO DEFEND ME. :)

  1. here at the blog but investing in wind now?  Is there something blowing in the wind?

    Interest in clean, renewable energies is spiking following the disaster at Fukushima Dai’ichi.  This may wind up being some good coming from an unfortunate disaster.  

  2. Ever more frequently along Route 61 heading north one sees or occasionally is delayed by truck convoys transporting sections of wind turbine tower structures or enormous spiral blades (wind propellers).

    One of these same propellers is longer than the wing span of a Boeing 747.

    Nothing to do this weekend?

    Take a Sunday drive to Shenandoah (yes…the very same Shanandoah).

    Take Route 61 from Reading, through Frackville and on north (Route 924) to Shanandoah.

    Continue through Shanandoah on 924 and straight up the mountain beyond.

    Bear right onto 339 and stay on this road all the way into Mahanoy City.

    Along the way are several wind turbines on both sides of the road.

    And yes, you will want to bring a camera.

    At your first sight of a wind turbine it may seem to be something alien, for its very size is so extraordinarily disproportionate to the earth’s landscape as to appear to be something almost extraterrestrial.

    On her very first encounter, my wife stood far below one of these 25 story high monoliths and was frozen in awe while its giant blades silently turned in the mountain winds.        

    Best of all, these same coal region wind farms are being erected by GAMESA (Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica) of Spain.

    They are “Made in America” within Pennsylvania by members of the United Steel Workers (USW) manufactured at the Fairless Hills steel plant in Bristol and at a plant in the town of Ebensburg in Cambria County.
