Greentech stocks, across clean power, biofuels, smart grid, batteries and electric vehicles, took it on the chin in the market sell-off yesterday — the first day of trading after the Standard & Poor downgraded the credit ratings of credit agencies. Well, the entire market did. But the market is rebounding slightly on Tuesday, and greentech stocks got bumped up a bit along with the rest of ‘em.
A few of the stocks I covered yesterday are still down — like EnerNOC, but that’s due to company-specific issues. Most are slightly up, though many didn’t return to the trading levels pre-market sell-off. Here’s a run down on where the stocks I covered yesterday are at this morning:
- Solar panel maker SunPower up 3.06 percent.
- Chinese solar panel maker Suntech rises 4.13 percent.
- Thin-film solar maker First Solar is still down .40 percent.
- Biofuel maker Gevo is back up 10.87 percent.
- Algae oil company Solazyme is up 3.07 percent.
- Biofuel maker KiOR is down even more: 3.50 percent.
- Biofuel maker Amyris is up 0.75 percent.
Electric car and batteries
- Lithium ion battery maker A123 Systems is up 11.70 percent.
- Electric car maker Tesla Motors is up 5.67 percent.
- Battery maker Ener1 is up 6.75 percent.
- Smart meter and network maker Itron is up 5.14 percent.
- Demand response company Comverge is down even more, by 1.38 percent.
- Demand response leader EnerNOC crashed even more, by 36.98 percent . (Yesterday’s market crash is combined with EnerNOC’s own weak earnings statement and a downgraded position to hold by a prominent analyst).
- Smart meter and network maker Echelon is back up by 5.51 percent.
- Car sharing company Zipcar is up 2.75 percent. It hasn’t fully recovered from yesterday.
- Clean Energy Fuels, which makes natural gas infrastructure for gas-powered cars, is still down by 5.80 percent.
