  • Ten Clean Energy Stocks for 2020
    Ten Clean Energy Stocks
    for 2020: Navigating the Storm

    Apr.1 2020 (AltEnergyStocks.com) -Four weeks ago, I predicted that the 12% market correction we had seen would turn into a true bear market. Bear markets are often defined as a decline of more than 20% for the major market indexes, but I find it more useful to focus on long term changes in investor sentiment.

    I still believe that the current period of uncertainty will have a long term effect on investor risk tolerance. That means that even when we have the economy functioning back at 2019 levels (which I don’t expect until 2022) the stock market will probably be trading at a lower valuation than it was in January 2020.
