Guinness Atkinson Alternative Energy

Guinness Atkinson 185Ticker: GAAEX
Minimum Investment: $5,000
Expenses: 1.98%
Load: None
Yield: 0.15%

A focus on sun and wind power has propelled GAAEX to No. 1 in its category (small-blend equity energy) this year, with a 71% gain year-to-date that bests its benchmark. Again, expenses are high, but management is more than earning its fees with this kind of outperformance.

Top holdings include SunPower (SPWR), Vestas Wind Systems (VWS) and Good Energy Group (GOOD).
