Taking the Pulse of the CAPS Blogs: Solar Power



June 30, 2008 – Comments (6)

Hi all,

The latest installment of this series is out today, and I wanted to thank everyone who contributed their thoughts and research on this topic throughout the CAPS blogosphere.  As was the case with the commodities piece, I am continually blown away by the quality of discussion within this site, and there is no group of investors anywhere that I'd rather navigate a Depression with.  :P


Not only are you to be congratulated for your #2 ranking, but your alternative energy post was just phenomenal.  I was not able to quote from it, because I need to focus on discussions on individual companies, but it was my great pleasure to try to draw some more readers to the post!  Thank you!


Your post was the starting point, and the source of the idea for the article.  As a moderator of discussions, you exemplify the spirit of CAPS.  If there were a lucky charm for nicest blogger, you'd be at the top of that list.  Congrats as well on your impressive score increases of late.  


You and I have certainly had some very different ideas about certain topics, especially gold. But in the spirit of CAPS, it was an absolute pleasure to highlight your excellent breakdown of various solar companies.  The most important aspect of a community is not where you find people at odds, but where community members at odds on some issues can find common ground on others.  Unti lI see ptherwise, you are the solar guru of the CAPS blog.  Congrats, also, on breaking into the CAPS top 100!  I hope to be right behind you.   :)

Thanks Chris,

I think we're birds of a feather... we just have different wings.

My first blog discussed how many CAPs users have different investment strategies and thus play CAPs very differently. I try to analyze things and only decide on less problematic outcomes, and that is how I form my timeframes. I'm typically a short-term/mid-term trader. I've only held two positions for more than a year TNH and AAPL.

When I hear people say $200+ oil or $2000 gold or 9,000+ DJIA I take it with a bit of skepticism because the chances of those things happening are highly problematic to me. Are they highly probable? Yes, and to me they are in that order of occurring, but there are many events that could offset that happening in between. Truthfully, I'm right there with you on the gold train unless there are serious policy changes but if I could predict the future I don't know if I'd be writing this(or maybe I would had known already). I only wrote that blog to explain what was going on within the mid-term timeframe I was comfortable.

There are so many bleak posts on CAPs that I try my best not to sound as pessimistic as others because not all is bad. I look at the most recommended blogs sometimes with amazement. camistocks, seems to be the only one still professesing the financial system is not going to hell in a hand basket but I value different views.

I always try and read to stay aware of solutions to today's problems instead of just talking about them. All investing is based on valuing instruments that serve sectors of society. A lot of people know solar could be a huge a solution to many of today's problems. There are other developements as well so there will more than likely be another write up sometime within my timeframe...

Thanks again... It was very much appreciated I enjoyed seeing the user blogs in the article.

Thanks! Man, I really appreciate all of the compliments! First let me say thanks for the nod to my blog. Yeah, I really did enjoy writing that post, and I really did like all the discussion that came out of it too! That was even more useful than the original post :) All of you Caps bloggers have given me so much and I really want to return the favor. And thanks for the "nicest blogger" compliment! Coming from you (the nicest and best blogger on Caps) that really means a lot to me! As far as my score, I will be happier when I get it high enough so that I am not experiencing +/- 25% swings per day :) But thanks!


Thanks man! Man, I really appreciate that. You have been one of my favorites for a long time.


I agree completely with Sinch and Tasty, your blogs are always top-notch. I very much enjoy reading them.


I also have to say congrats on #2!!
