Solar Stocks Explode

As I have said many times in the past, solar stocks are FAR MORE volatile than the average stock and that we can expect this above average volatility to continue because of the early stage of the industry and the general nature of the market we are in today. However, the past 4 trading days have been nothing less than spectacular for solar stocks. The 21 companies we track are up an AVERAGE of 42%, which to the best of my knowledge is an unprecedented move by any market sector in my experience. The average gain is close to 5 FOLD greater than the movement of the Dow, the S&P and the NASDAQ.

Average % Increase42.24%
S&P 500832.8664.328.37
Dow Jones7924.56646.188.88

What can we expect in the near future?

I would have to be wary of a move of this magnitude and would certainly expect a significant pullback and hopefully some form of consolidation and solid base building. Until solar stocks start to do this they will continue to be very dangerous investments that are suitable only for nimble FULL TIME traders with nerves of steel.

I fully expect this to occur and I fully expect the solar industry eventually develop into a very promising and sustainable industry. Until then, investors need to exercise caution and common sense and NOT let their emotions (i.e. the feeling that they are being left behind) get the best of them.
