Solar Stocks Continue to Follow thru on recent Rally

As I said in my last article over the past few months the market has been one of those “trendless” markets that can drive investors crazy and make it very difficult to make money. The markets as a whole are still in a longer term down trend but one day the market drops over 100 points and the next it moves up over 200 points, but that is the recent volatility that we will have to learn to live with.

However, quietly behind the scenes the solar sector has continued to come alive and more and more of the solar stocks have been showing strength with 21 of our 22 stocks now above their 50 day moving averages.

As any of you longer term readers know I have always said that two of the keys to successful investing are:

  1. Stocks moving above (positive) their 50 day average is a good short term trading tool; and
  2. Looking at the relative strength of all of the solar stocks compared to the market will tell you which solar stocks are the “strongest stocks” and therefore which stocks will tend to be the leaders in the next big up move.

The recent action, shown below, clearly shows that the solar sector after dramatically underperforming the major indexes on a year to date basis has dramatically outperformed the major indexes (gained significant relative strength compared to the market) since June 1 2010 by roughly a factor of 5 to 1.

Who really knows the reason why this is happening? Actually it does not matter, all that matters is that it very apparent that the sun is currently shining on the solar segment of the market at this time and that this segment is clearly gaining strength relative to the general market.
