What Clean Energy Fuels Investors Must Be Watching

With so much hype surrounding energy stocks out there, it can be difficult for investors to sort through the noise and extract meaningful information. To that end, Fool.com analyst Jason Moser talks about the fundamental points to focus on when looking at Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ: CLNE), a company for which Investors should look at trends of continuing adoption of its technology. The trucking industry and fleet vehicles have been embracing natural gas as an alternative fuel, but if another fuel source becomes popular and the demand for Clean Energy's services declines, the company could suffer.

State governments and local municipalities have initiated conversions of their fleets to use natural gas, and investors should look for signs that natural gas will remain sustainable as an alternative fuel. But investors need to remember: Natural gas is a commodity. The price is cyclical and volatile. While natural gas is very cheap and readily available today, that's not to say it can't get more expensive down the road -- and if it does, demand for natural gas vehicles will weaken and Clean Energy Fuels could face setbacks.

The movement toward alternative energy is gaining momentum, and Clean Energy Fuels is poised to make a big impact on an essential industry. Read all about Clean Energy Fuels in our brand-new report. Just click here to get started.

    Coal switching is a roof for natural gas pricing. There is no way that natural gas will become more expensive than any other form of energy in the near future. Waiting to convert just assures further purchasing of expensive fuel or dirty coal. Even exports will not be substantial for several years, if they are allowed. Payback is only a couple of years in most vehicles and energy.

    Natural gas is the future of energy. It is replacing dirty old coal plants, and dangerous expensive nuclear plants. It will fuel cars, vans, buses, locomotives, aircraft, ships, tractors, air conditioners, engines of all kinds. It costs far less. It will help keep us out of more useless wars, where we shed our blood and money. It is used to make many products. It lowers CO2 emissions. Over 3,200 natural gas story links on my free blog.
