EBOOM CAPITAL reported on Saturday that GT Solar International, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOLR) was the fourth best performing company in the EnergyBoom Clean 100 Index (E•B Clean 100) last week. Here are two other critical pieces of information about GT Solar.
First, the company’s shares have appreciated head and shoulders above other U.S.-based solar companies during 2010 -- up 43 percent so far this year. In fact, among the seven U.S. companies in the EnergyBoom Solar Subindex (E•B Solar), GT Solar is the only company in positive territory.
The U.S. broad stock indices have dramatically outperformed green sector indices over the first 11 months of 2010. However, a handful of green sector companies are bucking the trend with strong revenues and profits and impressive share price increases.
Several of these companies have been profiled in EBOOM CAPITAL this fall -- and here’s another one: PowerSecure International, Inc. (NASDAQ: POWR), headquartered in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
One of the three has generated profits on growing revenues and been rewarded with steady share price appreciation. The other two...not.
