Gordon Pape and I tackled green investing in recent articles. We approached it quite differently.

Gordon Pape and I tackled green investing in recent articles. I was writing for his Internet Wealth Builder investment newsletter and he was writing for the Sunday Star.

Gordon’s view is that green energy has matured beyond startups and although the prices of publicly traded wind and solar companies have been edging higher, they are still undervalued compared to the broader market. One reason for the depressed value of solar and wind stocks is that relatively few analysts cover them. He offered some ETF and mutual fund options.

But when it comes to investing, the process should start with whether energy holdings have a place in your portfolio at all. From there you might look at your risk tolerance and need for dividends. Then you might look at ETFs and individual stocks, filtering for quality, a history of rising sales and profits. One factor in the decision would be whether the companies align with your beliefs.

Here are the two articles:
Gordon Pape: How to tap into the growing green energy market
Adam Mayers: A closer look at green investing 

Adam Mayers writes about investing and personal finance. He is a contributor to the Globe & Mail’s Globe Advisor and a contributing editor to Gordon Pape's Internet Wealth Builder newsletter. Adam was Business Editor and investment columnist at The Toronto Star and is the author of six books.
