Renewable Energy Stocks Sector Close-Up on Solar Stocks; Solar Stocks Get A Boost from News on Chinese Subsidies

Investors Have a Little Fun in the Sun; Yingli Green Energy (NYSE: YGE) Up 44.82%

POINT ROBERTS, WA —March 27, 2009 --,
a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within, presents a sector close-up on solar stocks following news of China’s proposed subsidies for solar installations.

Several of the solar leaders had impressive gains, with Yingli Green Energy (NYSE: YGE) moving up 44.82% on the day.

Renewable Energy Stocks solar expert, J. Peter Lynch commented, “As I have said many times in the past, solar stocks are FAR MORE volatile than the average stock and that we can expect this above average volatility to continue because of the early stage of the industry and the general nature of the market we are in today. However, the past 4 trading days have been nothing less than spectacular for solar stocks. The 21 companies we track are up an AVERAGE of 42%, which to the best of my knowledge is an unprecedented move by any market sector in my experience. The average gain is close to 5 FOLD greater than the movement of the Dow, the S&P and the NASDAQ.”
