NextEra Energy: Growth Stock or Value Stock?

What a difference a few years makes. Just over a year ago, we wrote about The Biggest Renewable Energy Company in the World which happened to be NextEra Energy (NEE). Today, Exxon Mobil (XOM) is nearly three times the size of NextEra Energy as the price of oil has gone from negative to around $80 […]

Investing in the Best Wind Turbine Stock

Disruptive growth doesn’t always equate to profits. If you would have invested in the Invesco Solar ETF when it debuted nearly 15 years ago you would have 66% less money compared to a Nasdaq return of +534% over the same time frame. So much for blaming the 2008 market crash for solar’s underperformance. Just because […]

The Big Solar Debate: SolarEdge Stock Vs Enphase Stock

A surprisingly large number of retail investors ask Google which stock is the best to own. The response is about as predictable as asking the barber if you need a haircut. Any number of pundits out there will tell you which stocks they think you ought to buy. What most lack is a methodology to […]

NextEra Energy Stock Forecast: Sunny and Windy

If you’re someone who drives a rig that gets 10 miles per gallon, here’s how you can hedge the increasing costs at the pump. Invest in two dividend champions whose ebb and flow are tied directly to the price of oil – Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX). Exxon has a fascinating business model with […]

Fluence Energy Stock: A Global Energy Storage Leader

Some disruptive tech themes generate more interest than others for reasons we can only speculate on. For example, investors have shown a great deal of interest in energy storage. With all these electric cars driving around, makes sense to invest in lithium batteries, right? Well, that’s easier said than done, something we talked about in […]

3 Wave Energy Stocks Capturing the Ocean’s Power

Instead of idolizing movie stars (people whose job is pretending to be someone they’re not) athletes (people who play games for a living), and singers (people who sing songs), society ought to idolize those who have accomplished something. You may not know the name Victor Vescovo, but the man is an absolute legend. After climbing […]

Heliogen Stock is a Risky Play on Concentrated Solar

The emergence of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) has paved the way for financiers to make boatloads of cash very quickly, companies to raise massive amounts of funding very quickly, all while the retail investor gets the short end of the stick. We’ve covered more than 40 SPACs, and what they all have in common […]

Molten Salt Reactors Leading Advanced Nuclear Technology

Some emerging technologies are advancing so rapidly that we seem to write about them every week. Artificial intelligence is the most obvious example, as it bleeds into most other sectors, including robotics, smart cities, drug discovery, and the list goes on. Progress around other technologies is so painfully slow – and the eventual payoff debatable […]

When Will Carbon Capture Tech Become Economically Viable?

The first day at a new job is usually uneventful. There are HR policies to sign and disregard, break rooms to explore, and hours to wait while the Help Desk tries to get you signed into the system. So it was with some surprise that we learned that the head of the new U.S. administration […]

The Biggest Renewable Energy Company in the World

It was just over a year ago when we had boots on the ground in Azerbaijan scouting tech startups for our piece on the Top 12 Disruptive Tech Startups in the Caucasus. Of the three countries featured in our piece, Azerbaijan is the only one afflicted with “the curse of oil.” It’s the same curse […]
