Pick Your Alternative

As goes oil, so goes the rest of the energy sector. As oil closes above $80 for the first time, what’s the best alternative in the alternative energy space?

Pete Najarian has long been a believer in solar energy. He likes Trina (TSL) and Suntech (STP), but his favorite play is SunPower (SPWR), a spin-off of Cypress Semiconductor (CY). SunPower makes high-performance cells for solar panels that are very efficient, Pete said. You could buy CY as a safe bet or take the gamble and go for SPWR.

Guy Adami remains bullish on Fluor (FLR) as a nuclear play, in addition to a play on infrastructure.

Jeff Macke likes the Boardwalk Real Estate Trust, a REIT traded in Canada that is a play on the “booming” oil sands in Calgary.
