Solar Companies on the Watch List

After conversing with an online friend of mine, the topic was about investments in Solar companies. And I have been watching Solar companies with a small watchlist of companies that are directly involved in Solar Power, or Energy companies indirectly related to Solar Power.

But below is a part of my watchlist for Solar Power companies.

I currently do not have any investments in Solar stocks, but I have been looking at them, as it’s highly possible that this sector will take off, given the requirement in California that all new housing be equipped with Solar panels.

Right now, Solar stocks were heavily impacted by the market correction that has been happening since end of January 2018. So, there’s a chance that these Solar stocks could be rebounding soon.
