Although oil will still be king for the forseeable future clean tech is already making inroads and should grow almost exponentially. Be it wind, solar, bio fuels or what ever, as a group they are only a small part of 1 percent of the total energy complex and will take years to make a significant dent in oil. Long term buy!!!

Buying a highly regarded company at a discount. I think It will get a political boost with all the hardcore pro-wind power legislation people are pushing for.

I'm pushing toward wind over solar because the best solar company (nanosolar) isn't on the stock market, and the rest of them fall short.

This supplier of electrical wiring components is very well run and is currently down from the housing downturn. The TNB product crosses all electircal comopnents and as a result the industrial and controls products help sbouy the stock during housing downturns. I expectTNB to provide a strong return as the housing effect diminshes.

Thomas and Betts is an electrical company who has been around since the late 1800's. This stock is targeted at almost $10 more than its current price. It is in the industry sector, which i feel is a concrete place for investment over the new year.
