Smog and Olympics, not a very nice combination

Smog and Olympics, not a very nice combination

I did a nice experiment: I opened Google news and typed: China Olympics

70% of the articles that came out contained the one of the words: pollution, smog, grey sky.

Also 70% of the articles referred to human rights.

One of those articles is titled “Proud nation plays host and tourist in transformed capital”. Indeed China is a proud nation.

Unfortunately, no matter how many medals Chinese athletes will get, no matter how fast Chinese Economy will grow, the entire World will pity the Beijingese for having to breathe dirty air. And a proud nation doesn’t like to have a capital city pitied by everyone.

During Olympics games China shut all factories around Beiijin and stopped most of its cars. I’m sure the government will want to address the issue also on a longer term and not only in the capital city.

Fortunately China has a great resourse that can be part of its pollution fighting strategy: China has World’s largest solar panels producer: Suntech Power Holdings.

Suntech is a large company with its 8,000 employees. Suntech is now growing with Qtrly Revenue Growth (yoy):76.10%, and Qtrly Earnings Growth (yoy):113.80% just exporting its Solar Panels to Europe and US. When Chinese iternal market will add to that figure we will see a Baidu – like growth.

Adding to all that good news the fact that STP shares are not expensive with their Forward P/E:13.21, I could resist the temptation to add up to my 10 free STP shares that I got last year with my World famous free stock strategy.

I just bought 23 STP shares at $33.82 each spendig a total amount of $777.86

Even in this disaster Friday, Suntech (STP) managed to go up and reach my 40% target. October 19, 2007

Suntech managed to avoid today’s sell-off because Goldman Sachs raised its rating on solar-panel maker from hold to buy. STP actually managed to reach my target 40% gain since May.

Because of my “Free stocks strategy”, today I sold 30 shares of Suntech, an excellent company, at $46.86 each. I cashed in $1406.

I had bought 40 STP shares at $33.4051 Each, spending a a total sum of $ 1336.

So I earned cash and got 10 free STP shares… (more…)

With HOKU it’s a “free stocks” landslide: sold 110 HOKU SCIENTIFIC at + 40% June 26, 2007

…And 3 hours later went up + 52%…

Hoku is also the name of a good looking model

Let’s calm down a bit and tell the whole story (which is an example of how to “sell earn and cry“)

1) On Apr 27, 2006 I bought 150 HOKU shares at $7 each, spending a total sum of $1050. I mainly did it because it was one of the few green high tech ( hydrogen cells) companies which did actually have earnings. I knew it was a crazy move

2) A short time later HOKU was down 60% because they seemed to give up their hydrogen cell technology to build polysilicon for solar plants. That way HOKU admitted that their “Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells” wasn’t good enough. I inserted HOKU in my “investing mistakes” list, but did not sell it. I never sell a stock unless it goes 40% up. (more…)

Low cost solar panels

Big news of today: “World leaders agreed on Thursday to pursue “substantial” but unspecified cuts in greenhouse gases and pledged to reach a United Nations deal by 2009 on long-term measures to fight global warming.”

Being greedy, like just poor people can be, I am not only happy for my dear planet Earth, but I also want to make some bucks of today’s news!

Who will benefit? Solar panel producers I guess.

Where will most solar panels produced? In China of course, just like everything else. (more…)
