Energizing Your Portfolio

“We think it makes sense to invest in solar power, wind power … Fossil fuel prices, they’re not going to be cheap anymore… Exelon , Dominion [Resources] ,Entergy … Electric utilities that are already out there that have a far above average nuclear capacity.”

Investing In Israel

There's "Teva , which is definitely what everyone knows is the biggest pharmaceutical company in Israel and one of the largest in the world, in terms of prescriptions. Other names which I think investors are less familiar with are the cellular companies within Israel. I’ll start with Cellcom ,which is the market leader, in terms of cellular provider. Cellcom has rougly 34 percent market share and it has been operational since 1993, and it’s the biggest revenue driver.”
