2/27 PBW

Hey everyone

Greentech Media put out an article about the solar industry on Seeking Alpha.

The chart is consolidating and is creating a nice wedge. There might be an opportunity to put a straddle on at 22 or 21. I would make it at least six months out to give sufficient time protection.

That said, I am still hanging with the call spread I own. I personally think that the sector has a lot of growth ahead of it and it will benefit from both public and private funding.

PBW news 2/25

Not much movement or news today. There was a story about First Solar in the WSJ's Investing section but it was fluff being the hot stock in 2007. But press is press.

The bands are within 2 points of eachother which is the closest they have been in 3-6 months. Expect some movement this week as the fed chairman speaks to congress and a couple of the companies are releasing earnings.

PBW info

Hey everyone

The following stories about companies within PBW seemed relevant to post. I also posted the stories on Yahoo! Finance if that is easier

- article on First Solar (company web site)
- seekingalpha article on PBW (company website)
- reuters article on Itron (company website)

I think the ETF has hit a gathering period. I still feel my 22-24 June spread is a good trade.

A penny for your thoughts.......dollars for our investments!

PBW's situation


PBW is continuing its way up. The 22-24 call spread moving forward. A recent article in Seeking Alpha mentions PBW.

Look to start buying the banks. The rebates are headed their way. The Fed chief just mentioned possible rate cuts again.
