first_imgAnalysis: Renewable investments have walloped oil and gas over the past five years FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Renewable energy stocks have punched well above their weight over the past five years, an analysis by S&P Global Market Intelligence found, with the biggest players tripling in value in that period as oil and gas production company stocks held steady.An equally weighted basket of the 20 largest publicly traded stocks of North American companies that make and sell renewable power — geothermal, wind and solar energy sellers — gained 201% over the past five years as of Aug. 31. Meanwhile, the equally weighted value of the 73 firms in S&P’s Oil & Gas Exploration and Production Index—energy providers—gained 2% over the same period.Of the 20 renewable stocks, with a total market value of $34 billion, 65% gained in value over the five years, while only 30% of the 73 S&P oil and gas index companies, a group totaling $1.36 trillion in market cap, were in positive territory after five years. The broader benchmark S&P 500 index grew 40% over the five years.A 35% slide in the price of crude oil has not helped the E&P stocks, which are historically closely tied to the commodity, while renewable stocks have tracked more closely with the tech sector, said Deanna Zhang, an energy tech and renewables analyst for the energy investment bank Tudor Pickering Holt & Co.Raymond James & Associates Inc. oil and gas analyst Pavel Molchanov agreed that the market rewards high-growth stocks and renewables. Largely based on new and improving technologies, renewable energy companies are benefiting from the same trend that has exploded the value of such high-tech issues as Amazon.com Inc. and Facebook Inc.“It is not surprising that renewable stocks have outperformed the E&P index over the past five years,” said Vishal Shah, a partner with Hudson Sustainable Investments LLC, a $3 billion private equity fund. “[A] combination of positive industry fundamentals and favorable global policy support have resulted in this outperformance for renewables. Corporate renewables and storage plus renewables, along with the strong growth of distributed generation, are the main drivers for strong fundamentals in the renewables sector for power generation,” Shah said.More ($): Renewable premium: Wind, solar stocks soar as oil prices constrain drillerslast_img read more
