Sale – Clipper Windpower

Late last week, following our sad farewell to Renesola, we sold off our final cache of another Investor Trader stalwart, Clipper Windpower. The once proud Clipper Windpower whose price previously stormed its way toward ten quid recently became a takeover target for UTC and not for the first time if memory serves me correct. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the offer came in at 65 pence a share and not being one to hang a round for the last rites, we sold out at 64.15 pence to put our money to work elsewhere. At the time of the deal 65...

On the Radar – Renewable Energy Holdings

On the advice of one of our readers (thanks Justin) we've placed Renewable Energy Holdings (REH.L) on the radar. As its name suggests, Renewable Energy Holdings is all about sustainable renewable energy. They seem to have their finger in a few alternative energy pies from wind, wave and solar through to methane capture and hydro power generation. Obviously we love the sector with all it's crunchy green goodness and with its diversity, REH.L, looks in a good position to cash in on this increasingly important niche of the energy sector. This diversification provides shareholders with the benefit of access to distinct opportunities in these...

Wind Farms – A Breath of Fresh Air

Today marked the opening of Europe's largest wind farm on Eaglesham Moor in Scotland, not far from Glasgow. The Whitelee Wind Farm has 140 turbines (each 110 metres high) and the potential to generate enough electricity to power 180,000 homes. As I type this, our Clipper Windpower holdings are up 5.7% on the day. Check out more information from the Daily Telegraph and get an aerial tour of the site over at BBC....

Day 13 – Portfolio Value £5,485 Up £215 On The Day

Another mixed day today when you look at the arrows but the performers in our little green portfolio more than compensated for the sliders. Our latest acquisition, Clipper Windpower powered ahead again finishing up 19.5 pence at £1.45. Not bad when you consider we bought it three short days ago for £1.0450. To date it's appreciated over 38%. ReneSola continued it's good run finishing up 1.75 pence, whilst Climate Exchange dropped two pence on the day. Low Carbon Accelerator did nada on low volumes....

On the Move – Clipper Windpower

Whether it was down to an inspired piece of investment research or unashamed blind luck, Friday's purchase of Clipper Windpower paid off almost immediately as the share finished 24% up on the day on the back of no news and only slightly higher than average volumes. I'm pretty sure it was the latter. But something is afoot, there's a breeze a blowin' and Clipper is in as good a position as any to cash in on the inevitable shift toward alternative energy....

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...
