Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

What happened

Shares of Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE) moved up as much as 12.7% in morning trading on Thursday. As of 12:16 p.m. EDT, they have cooled off, but are still up 4% on a day when many stocks are down.  

So what

As is often the case, today’s increase isn’t tied to anything material that’s been reported about the company itself. Clean Energy hasn’t issued a press release or made an SEC filing of any note in about a week. And there aren’t any rumors — substantiated or otherwise — floating around that are directly tied to the company’s prospects. 

Image source: Clean Energy Fuels.

However, there is some potentially positive big-picture news. After word came out late last week that OPEC and Russia were considering increasing their oil output later this year, a more-recent source has indicated that may not be the case after all — at least not before year-end. And while oil prices haven’t exactly surged on the news, they have stabilized after multiple down days since peaking at almost $80 on May 23. Brent Crude futures are at $77.87, up from a low of $75.30 early this week. West Texas Intermediate crude, a major U.S. benchmark, peaked above $72 on May 21, and trades for $67.10 at recent prices.

    So, what were investors thinking? The guys consider the near-term and longer-term stories for the company. Then, it’s on to recreational vehicle manufacturer Winnebago (NYSE:WGO). Overall RV sales are at record highs, and sales of towables in particular are shooting upward, thanks to their popularity among two key demographics. Yet the market is still valuing Winnebago shares around 20% below where they were a year ago. Is there justification for that pessimism?
