Can investors still make money in renewable energy? High-flying renewable-energy stocks like SunPower Corp (NSDQ: SPWR) and SolarCity Corp (NSDQ: SCTY) routinely garner headlines but also entail significant risks.
Our Portfolio holdings with exposure to renewable-energy have generated an average return of more than 26 percent since last fall.
And we see further upside for all five stocks, fueled in part by the bullish near-term outlook for renewable energy in the US. Our favorites should continue to generate reliable earnings and grow their dividends through acquisitions and organic-growth opportunities.
What sets our favorites apart from SolarCity Corp and other overhyped names?
These companies generate a profit and pay reliable dividends. Even better, our picks have the wherewithal to survive a slowdown in renewable-energy development, thanks to their contract-backed revenue and exposure to other business lines.
Despite these advantages, these stocks still trade at reasonable valuations, making them solid bets for investors looking to build wealth over the long term.
