We’re not done here by any means.  Just protecting capital.  For those who took profits earlier, you are in great shape.  For the long term holders, book your losses and prepare for a re-entry once the wash sales are clear.

The fundamentals here are still strong in most cases and the growth going forward is outstanding.  We will follow the strength when we buy back in.  What we’ve seen so far is only the beginning.

Happy Anniversary – Beating the S&P 500 by 58% in the first year

Solar has been on fire for a while now, and we jumped in right at the perfect time.

The original group did even better as three of four recent additions were stopped out with a loss.

Here’s to keeping a good thing going, we certainly have enough sunshine.

I look for more gains ahead as this sector matures and consolidation begins.

New technological developments are on our radar as we discover the next generation of solar and begin to separate the long term winners from the rest of the pack.
