Point Roberts, WA, United States, 2008/11/27 - RenewableEnergyStocks.com, a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within Investorideas.com, presents a sector close-up on solar stocks following a two day run for some of the leaders.
Solar stocks traded up with the general markets but investors are cautiously optimistic following the recent speech from President-elect Obama, discussing job creation in the sector.
Renewable Energy Stocks solar expert, J. Peter Lynch commented in his most recent column, that this market may represent a generational buying opportunity, “I agree that solar P/E’s and expectations were FAR too optimistic and missed a number of rather obvious problems that were rapidly approaching (i.e. coming silicon over supply), however, at this time I believe that current expectations have moved equally to the opposite extreme with FAR too much pessimism.”
Renewable and Solar Energy Perspectives with J. Peter Lynch available on the InvestorIdeas website.
