On the Radar – Ceramic Fuel Cells

Okay, this may be a case of the horse already bolting but I'll be very interested to see what happens come market open on Tuesday. Last Friday, Melbourne based, Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited gained a rather juicy 1.95 pence (31.2%) on the day, closing at 8.20 pence (after testing 9+ pence earlier). The gains came after an RNS quoting that Ceramic Fuel Cells "has launched a dishwasher-sized low emission generator for the home." Check out the news in full at Interactive Investor.

On the Move – Clipper Windpower

Keeping it Green

I've got to admit it, I'm a bit of a closet greenie. I've never chained myself to a tree or put my ample girth between a whale and a Japanese "research" boat you must understand, but in the back of my mind there's a part of me that thinks maybe I should. As I nudge the big 4-0, I know dreams of environmental heroism are probably a little beyond me now but it doesn't mean I can't look to do my bit in other, less life-threatening ways. I'm not going to make any bold claims that our little portfolio at Investor...

Day 8 – Portfolio Value £4,298 Up £416 On The Day

Despite 2 of our shares finishing lower on the day, the financial sun shone on ReneSola and its monocrystalline wafers, coming in at a whopping 18 pence per share gain on the day (that's 15.62%). If I were a betting man, I'd short it for the day tomorrow as there's bound to be a little profit taking, let's just sit tight and see. Being ReneSola I know one thing for sure, it's going to be a bouncy ride this week....
