Maybe it’s time to think about what stocks might be good to own when (and it is “when” now) Obama wins. Renewables, cleantech, etc. could all take big jumps.
While thinking about this, I discovered MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR). They make silicon wafers for chips and starter materials for solar power panels. Very low P/E. No debt. Appears very healthy. There are probably many companies like them out there that have had their stock prices decapitated lately for no particular reason.
Caveat: Stocks may well continue to get clobbered, so consider cleantech stocks as long-term holds, not trades. (Do your own research and please don’t squawk at me if you buy a green stock and it goes kersplat!)
