Expertise on electricity, water and weather related investing

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

I think investors have come to recognise the potential and that there are opportunities in water, weather and electricity related investments. But a lot are getting the whole long-only talking head version that we see in the media. It is quite one-sided and sensational, and for serious, professional investors, this type of euphoria is always cause for pause. In fact, the latter are waiting for the downside to materialise to really understand the risks and how they are not always linked to the fundamental story of a particular market.
