Decent jobs report bolsters week... Solar Tops Dow, NASDAQ

Solar Stock Update - Nov 30-Dec 4

David Brands | Solar Advice for Free


While the Dow struggled to a small gain this week, the NASDAQ was up 2.6% and the 20 Solar Stocks Index gained over 30 points to finish at 413.99, nearly an 8% gain since last Friday.


A better-than-expected jobs report from the federal government pushed the Dow up over 180 points earlier today before slipping back to a modest gain of 78.98 to finish at 10388.9.

All but one stock in the 20SSI went up for the week with the average stock price increase at over 8%. Leaders were LDK Solar, Yingli and Satcon. A decent December could beat the year's start of 415.41, a moral victory if nothing else.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
