Wind Energy Could Blow Big Profits Your Way
It may not sound like the most exciting investment in the world.
But once you consider that wind energy is booming globally, accounting for more than a third of all electricity capacity installed over the last five years, you can see why many investors have grown to like it. In short, a multi-billion dollar industry has been right under many of our noses. Unfortunately, the story hasn’t grabbed many headlines.
In fact, according to Windpower Engineering (WE):
“American wind power reached new heights for energy generated and U.S. jobs in 2017. And don’t be surprised when the industry continues to break records. Wind power generated a record 6.3% of U.S. electricity in 2017. The impact is even more pronounced at the state level where Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, and South Dakota generated over 30% of their electricity using wind,” according to WE. “Nationally, 14 states generate more than 10% of their electricity from wind — showcasing wind power’s proven ability to deliver large portions of our electricity needs at low-cost while keeping the lights on. Operating wind power capacity grew 9% last year. The installation of 7,017 MW of wind in 2017 brings total U.S. installed wind power capacity to 88,973 MW. That’s just under 54,000 wind turbines operating in 41 states, Guam and Puerto Rico, enough installed capacity to power a record 27 million American homes.”
Globally, there's even more room for growth.
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), wind is on target to reach 18% of global energy production by 2050.
The problem for investors – there aren’t many pure-play stocks.
However, if you’re looking for a smart way to invest in this explosive sector, consider:
General Electric Company (GE)
You can’t have a list of wind stocks without GE.
Options Strategy With 746% Return
Dr. Singh reveals proprietary sequence of steps that generated a 98% success rate and a 746% return over the past 9 years!
The company is looking to strengthen its wind position with a recent acquisition of LM Wind Power for $1.7 billion in 2017. It also has plans to build one of the world’s largest offshore wind turbines that could be three times as tall as the Statue of Liberty.
According to Bloomberg:
“The new turbine, dubbed Haliade-X, will measure 260 meters (853 feet) tall, the company said. The blades, manufactured by LM Wind Power, will be longer than a soccer field. One 12-megawatt turbine will generate as much as 67 gigawatt hours a year, which is enough to power 5,000 households, GE said. Bigger turbines need fewer foundations and less complex grid connections than smaller units. That means a wind farm’s layout can be made more efficient, and fewer machines means less maintenance.”
Vestas Wind Systems (VWDRY)
Vestas is one of the most important turbine makers and service providers in the world.
The company designs, manufactures, installs, and services wind turbines across the globe, and with 90 GW of wind turbines in 77 countries.
But one of the best ways to diversify and gain max exposure to wind is with an ETF, with the First Trust Global Wind Energy Fund (FAN), which had been incredibly explosive for investors between February and April 2018.
The First Trust Global Wind Energy ETF is an exchange-traded fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before the Fund's fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE Clean Edge Global Wind Energy Index. It’s so popular that even LPL Financial just increased its stake by 22.5% in the ETF, according to a 13F SEC filing.
What this ETF allows you to do is gain exposure through global diversification to a multi-billion market that’s been under our noses for quite some time.
Even better, it’s chart is much more attractive than GE and VWDRY.
