Nov. 13 /CSRwire/ - NEW YORK, New York - Progressive Investor announces the release of the report, "How To Invest In The Booming Wind Industry."
Environmental investors are anxious to participate in this growth. One of the most frequent questions we receive is, "I want to invest in wind - Which companies are good investments?"
This report looks at what's driving the industry forward and holding it back, what to expect going forward, who the main players are and how people might invest in them.
Even though the wind industry is growing significantly, our research shows it's not as straight forward an investment as it may seem from the surface. Is the wind industry a good place to park your money? And if so, do you invest in the turbine manufacturers or the wind farm developers? Which ones?
Jack Robinson, Managing Director of Winslow Management says, "I think there's good reason to be interested in wind - you can invest in companies that are profitable today and have the opportunity to grow profits at a rate equal to the industry growth at 25%.
Not everyone agrees with this rosy outlook. Terry Foecke, principal of Materials Productivity counters, "When you run it by traditional investment advisors, wind looks like a terrible bet. You have all the earmarks of things they avoid: dependence on government subsidies and high valuations.
