Trading Strategy During Financial Freefall

When the current crisis began with the fall of Lehman, I decided to get out of my most speculative and worst capitalized Renewable Energy companies, and I wrote a series of articles on each. Now, I’m looking exclusively at companies involved in energy efficiency technologies, and technologies which help customers shift their demand to when or where it is cheaper (smart grid and transmission.)

Here’s an index to the articles on the stocks I sold:

  1. Held: UQM Technologies (UQM)
  2. Sold: Carmanah Technologies (CMHXF)
  3. Sold: Pacific Ethanol (PEIX)
  4. Sold: Dynamotive Energy Systems (DYMTF)
  5. Sold: Nova Biosource Fuels (NBF)
  6. Sold: VRB Power (VRBPF)
  7. Sold: Electro Energy, Inc. (EEEI)

    I love renewable energy stocks and I plan to stay plugged into your insights for this…

    But it’s not a good time to be in ANY equities right now (We are learning that one the hard way, aren’t we?) as even my precious metal backed equities are being driven down with the liquidation 40-70% – OUCH

    I am bullish on renewable energy but am waiting for market to bottom and trend sideways before I get into them and that could be a while.

    Any suggestions on renewable energy ETF’s ?

    I have several recent articles about ETFs here:

    This one is porbaby the most appropriate..

    But I disagree… if you’re going to be in te market at all, stock picking is the way to go, especially now.

    Hi Tom,

    I’m emailing you in regards to an email I sent to you last month about a partnership, have you had a chance to think about it?

    If you have any questions or would more information, please advise me and we can go from there.

    Kind Regards,
    Andrew Knight
