Hottest Stocks of 2013 – Solar Stocks

solar-stocks-csiq-jks-fslr-sctyIf you’re hunting for industries that have momentum and seem likely to keep chugging higher, solar stocks may be the flavor for you. Names like Canadian Solar (CSIQ) and JinkoSolar (JKS) rose from the dead in 2013, thanks to new subsidies from key markets and the mega-shift toward renewable energy.

Other big winners were FirstSolar (FSLR), which has climbed around 80% thanks to its focus on grid-scale projects, and SolarCity (SCTY), which is up almost 400%.

One top of that, when InvestorPlace energy expert Aaron Levitt recapped the sizzling returns for solar stocks recently, he added that “2014 could bring more of the same to the sector.” The tailwinds that pushed solar stocks higher in 2013 don’t look to be going anywhere, and many of the hottest solar stocks are still far off their 2008 peaks.
