THE 3 Top Green Energy Stocks to Consider Buying Now

Investing directly in growth stocks is a high risk activity; medium risk investors should consider acquiring positions in clean energy mutual funds, as these eliminate most individual stock risk and allow investors to benefit from the sector trend.

The near term risk in the clean power sector is continued downward pressure on oil prices, although somewhere in the fall from the current $93 to an estimated $70 a year from now, the sectors will decouple and green stocks will resume their long-term uptrend. Dollar-cost averaging into renewable power stock funds over the next 6 to 9 months would be very prudent, and the more adventurous may want to wade in over the next 3 to 5 months.

If you are a long term equity investor with a time horizon of 5 to 10 years or longer, consult your investment advisor about adding some of these names to your growth stock portfolio:

Normally I find this solar energy market leader a bit pricey, but the past few months of downside volatility in USA and global financial markets have really taken the stuffing out of this industry leader. First Solar is considered the Google of the renewable power sector, in that it is by far the dominant player in the global solar photovoltaics industry. Its patented cadmium telluride thin-film solar technology allows FSLR to produce solar panels and modules more inexpensively than competitors, and this advantage has been translated into a healthy global market share. Although there are concerns about the availability of enough tellurium to meet future demand, my feeling is that FSLR has the financial muscle and wherewithal to scare up what it needs, and likely has future versions of its technology in development that require even less tellurium. Clearly overpriced at its 52-week high of $317, today's (03OCT08) close of 163.19 makes me want to revisit this one. Trading at about 44x estimated 2008 earnings and only 23.4x next year's forecasted earnings, there is still risk to be had but solar energy is here to stay and First Solar is the first mover.

The world leader in geothermal energy and remote power, Ormat designs, develops, builds, owns and operates geothermal recovered energy-based power plants, usually using equipment that it designs and manufactures. Not as widely known as First Solar, this is exactly the type of quality American company that will benefit under the wise leadership of Barack Obama over the next eight years. When the Obama rally is in full swing, this stock will likely already be much higher than its current price of $31.40 and on the way to surpassing its year high of 57.93. Trading now at just 27.4 times earnings, it may be a long time before you'll see another opportunity to acquire Ormat at these multiples.

Down from a high of 700 DKK (Danish Kroners), Vestas at 468DKK (up 47 or 11.1% today!) is a blue-green chip investment for the ages. With over 30% of the growing global wind power market, Vestas gets a premium for its high quality wind turbines and is the Mercedes Benz of the wind energy industry. At 39.8 times earnings, conservative investors may find this company still expensive, but there's a price to pay for greatness, and the time to load up on great firms is when there's blood in the streets. Probably the highest quality company in the entire green energy investing sector, it's time to take a look at Vestas.
