Alternative Energy Stocks Smart Money Loves

Alternative energy stocks need to reside every long-term-oriented investor’s portfolio for two primary reasons. First of all, alternative energy represents the fastest-growing segment within the entire energy industry. Second of all, renewable energy facilities provide stable cash flow streams that will enable the companies operating them to return a significant amount of capital to shareholders in the form of dividends. As alternative energy companies are still in the growing phase, the much-anticipated hefty dividend receipts are yet to come.

Public opinion and government support have been the main drivers of growth for the solar energy industry, with solar energy anticipated to become the fundamental source of electric power in the future. Given that global demand for electricity continues to growth, renewable energy stocks represent attractive long-term picks for investors regardless of the current economic climate. For that reason, Insider Monkey compiled a list of alternative energy stock favored by the hedge funds followed by our team, so let’s have a look at the change in hedge fund sentiment towards five high-potential renewable energy stocks.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 730 hedge funds and institutional investors. Through extensive backtests, we have determined that imitating some of the stocks that these investors are collectively bullish on can help retail investors generate double digits of alpha per year. The key is to focus on the small-cap picks of these funds, which are usually less followed by the broader market and allow for larger price inefficiencies (see more details).
