DuPont's Time To Shine

Tuesday, 20 May 2008 | 6:25 PM ET

DuPont is probably best known as a maker of chemicals but the company also runs a lesser-known solar business. In fact DuPont announced plans this month to build additional solar energy facilities in China.

DuPont expects growth in the photovoltaic market to exceed 30 percent each year over the next several years, explains Pete Najarian. And they’ve made significant investments in product development and capacity expansions to help keep pace. I think this stock is a buy, he adds.

With crude oil crossing $129 for the first time, solar stocks are having their moment in the sun, with the Fast Money team.

Also, DuPont was founded as a maker of gunpowder. They have a history of adapting to the needs of the market. If solar power explodes they could really win. I also think it’s a buy, adds Guy Adami.
