  13. 13. !"#$$%&'()* Vestas Stock 3Y Chart Thursday, October 17, 2013
  14. 14. Vestas Stock Key Data • Stock history: VWDRY is one of the few stocks that holds a different pattern than all of the rest of the alternative energy sector. Yes, it plummeted during 2011, but the price of this stock has already started to increase. Their price increased by 367% in the past 52 weeks, and it is about four times larger than its minimum value in the past three years. • Beta: Once again, as being a single alternative energy stock which depends simply in wind energy, this company is really risky and has a beta of 2.07 which shows their high volatility. • P/E ratio: Their P/E ratio isn’t stated, but most of the energy stocks stand near 10, and their recent performance proofs that this shouldn’t be an outlier, so if this is how many financial advisors predict, it is another reason to invest in the stock. Thursday, October 17, 2013
  15. 15. Forecast • At present, they are about to expand their production of energy through wind from wind farms to offshore wind turbines. As seen in the video, giant wind flaps, a diameter of about 160m (larger than London Eye), will increase their production significantly. Aside from being a great source, it is vital because in the middle of the sea the wind is much more constant. The only problem would be maintenance of the system, but they have developed a way of accessing them each 27 hours. In this case, workers get intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, because they really need to love engineering to work in this and they get paid high wages and they work under the most secure system.

  17. 17. !"#$$%&'()* FSLR Thursday, October 17, 2013 Stock 3Y Chart
  18. 18. FSLR Stock Key Data • Stock history: At present, their value is less than a third than their 3 year maximum. Similarly to every alternative energy stock, it plummeted during 2011 but in the start of 2012, if settled down and it established a price of about 30 dollars. • Beta: According to several sources such as Google and Yahoo, the Beta of FSLR stands in between 1.70 and 1.80. Clearly, it is a risky and volatile choice, and that’s why we are not investing just in this single stock but we have decided to split our money to have a final investment that is balanced, with risky stocks and a secure ETF. • P/E ratio: With a PE ratio between 10 and 11, it stands really near one of the most stable and large energy entities in the world: Exxon Mobile. This is a neutral factor, it doesn’t impact significantly beneficially or negatively our choice. Thursday, October 17, 2013
  19. 19. Forecast • Thursday, October 17, 2013 First Solar is the only company in the industry of solar energy that uses Cadmium Telluride for their solar panels. This material, aside from being much more environmentally friendly than silicone of the classic solar panel, it works as a better conductor and it is much more effective. Because the use of this product in their process of extracting the energy, they are one of the few alternative energy that compete in price with normal energy producers, one of the main reasons of their success. In the future, as we run out of resources, these will become vital and the price will maintain and become lower that other types of energy, so people will start to get energy from first solar and their price will certainly increase.
  20. 20. Comparison Thursday, October 17, 2013 !"#$$%&'()*
  21. 21. Evidence & Support • • Exchange traded funds that hold alternative energy stocks are among some this year’s top-performing non-leveraged sector ETFs. • • Japan, China and the U.S. combine for nearly 55% of ICLN’s • ‘New Chapter’ “Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in offshore wind, a market segment with significant growth potential,” Marika Fredriksson, Vestas’s chief financial officer, said at a press conference in Tokyo today. • The pace of offshore wind installations has slowed this year, with the industry struggling to make grid connection in Germany and tap government support in China. Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecasts 1.7 gigawatts of turbines at sea will be installed this year, compared to 1.9 gigawatts in 2012. The market may grow to about 8 gigawatts in 2020. • The partnership bolsters Vestas’s ability to compete with Siemens AG (SIE) of Germany, the largest manufacturer of offshore turbines by capacity installed last year, said Kasper Larsen, a credit analyst at Danske Bank A/S (DANSKE) in Copenhagen. • “From a strategic point of view, this JV is becoming more capable of competing with Siemens in the offshore wind turbine market,” Larsen said. “You can now address utilities in a different manner than Vestas was able to do before.” Imagine the potency of an ETF that can offer exposure to alternative energy stocks as well as Chinese and Japanese equities. Investors do not need to imagine that alluring proposition because the iShares Global Clean Energy ETF (ICLN) delivers on all three fronts. Up 27% year-to-date, ICLN has allocations to more than 10 countries, ICLN is more focused on biofuels, ethanol, geothermal energy, solar and wind energy names. However, in a year where solar ETFs such as the Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) are among the best-performing sector ETFs, ICLN has enough solar exposure to have benefited from that industry’s resurgence.
