Market troubles hit solar stocks

first_imgMarket troubles hit solar stocksShares of publicly traded solar companies were already suffering from a faulty association with the price of oil, but the recent fall in global markets has furthered declines. August 24, 2015 Christian Roselund Finance Markets Markets & Policy Share The MAC Global Solar Energy Stock Index has tanked for the past week, its second severe slide in only two months. The index fell from $159 on Monday August 17th to $135 on the morning of the 24th.MAC serves as a tracking index of the Guggenheim Solar Exchange Traded Fund on the New York Stock Exchange, and includes the stock of more than two dozen of the world’s largest solar companies. As such, it serves as a general indicator of the health of solar stocks.Stock prices in MAC have generally been in trouble this summer due to a false association in the minds of investors between the viability of solar and oil prices. The index fell from around $220 in mid-June to its current lows, just as global prices of Brent and WTI Crude oil fell from $60-$65 a barrel to current prices of $40-45.However, over the last week has not only been oil prices falling, but stock values in general, in markets around the world. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell from 17,545 to 16,460 during one week from August 17th to 24th, and fell further Monday morning to around 16,200 at noon on Monday. This is the Dow’s most severe fall since at least 2011.This crash has affected even stocks like First Solar which had rebounded in August despite the ongoing oil price slide, and furthered declines at SunEdison, which has been particularly in crisis following investors reacting badly to the company’s second quarter earnings. “The stock market has been extremely volatile ever since China devalued its currency amid growing concerns that the economy is growing slower than previously anticipated,” explains Mercom Capital CEO Raj Prabhu. “Stock markets are down globally.””As I have said before there is little correlation between solar industry fundamentals and the stock performance of publicly traded solar stocks which started sliding with the further fall in oil prices. That said, this could have a negative effect on public market fundraising in the short-term as the companies will have to raise financing at lower valuations.”Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

But Racela doesn’t want to pin the blame for FEU’s lackluster showing on the 15-day break his team took.“I don’t believe in that kasi I always tell our team to use everything to your advantage.”“If you’re given a long layoff, then pwede ka magpahinga and you can work on a lot of different things para pag nag-resume, you get better.”At this stage of the tournament, all Racela wants to see is for the Tamaraws to continue improving as they prepare for the Final Four.“My main worry is mag-regress kami,” he said. “Ang importante, especially going sa crucial stretch, is mag-improve lang ng mag-improve. Pag di kami nagi-improve, it means hindi kami ok.

Open Source: The ‘barometer’ points to a strong demand for choice

first_imgAlfresco is releasing ‘barometer data’ of what’s going on in the world of Open Source based on their own experience.Alfresco has seen very rapid adoption in the few years the company has been in existence, now topping 1 million downloads and used by a wide range of organizations like NASA, The Switzerland Supreme Court, Harvard, Christian Science Monitor, H&R Block, McGraw Hill, and others.Alfresco supports a variety of Operating Systems, Databases, and Application servers.Alfresco’s Ian Howells contrasted the difference in approach between an Open Source offering like Alfresco versus a commercial product like Microsoft’s SharePoint.  “SharePoint is crystallizing people’s views in choice,” he said. “SharePoint forces you to use Microsoft Windows, SQL Server, .NET and Portal.And to a certain extent, you’re not going to use OpenOffice with it. And some people like that top-to-bottom stack and some people want to have a choice.Most of the corporations we talked with — they still want to use Oracle BEA. And it’s making people think, ‘Do I want to be tied into one stack or do I want to have a choice.’ And I think that’s the big thing that’s been happening over the last 12 months, and the next 12 months.”Alfresco polled 35,000 of their community users and found some interesting trends in Open Source based on how Alfresco is being deployed.They found that 51 percent of their community is downloading the Windows version of ALfresco, compared to only 30 percent downloading the Linux version.And part of the reason for the large number of Windows version copies is that many people find it convenient to evaluate the software on their desktop or laptop.  44 percent of those responding say that they test the software on their laptops.  Only 26 percent are deploying their download to a company server.Among the flavors of Linux, the survey found that Ubuntu is becoming more popular, now accounting for 38 percent of their Linux deployments, while RHEL variants accounted for 35 percent, and only 9 percent were Novell’s SUSE Linux.60 percent of their installations were MySQL-based; 14 percent were Oracle; 13 percent were Microsoft SQL Server, 9 percent were PostgreSQL, and 2 percent were IBM’s DB2.  70 percent of the deployments used Tomcat and 18 percent were using JBoss.Formtek is an Alfresco Gold Systems Integration Partner.last_img read more
