Point Roberts, WA, January 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- 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. With the recent sell-off in the markets in general, solar stocks also took a major hit, loosing significant gains made in 2007. Yesterday’s trading in solar leaders gave investors renewed optimism and faith in the long-term prospects for the sector.
Most renewable energy analysts think the long-term outlook is bullish and investors should look at this as a selective buying opportunity.
To quote our on-site solar expert, J Peter Lynch: “This in no way alters my bullish view of our bright solar future and solar stocks in general. I just think we are in a period of transition where there will still be plenty of money to be made, but investors will just have to be more savvy and selective in their investments.”
Another analyst, Pavel Molchanov, from Raymond James, noted earlier this week, “While we clearly do not rule out the possibility of further volatility, we would encourage investors to think long-term, ride out the current storm, and use this as an opportunity to accumulate shares.”
