This segment is from Thursday's edition of 'Digging for Value', in which sector analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman discuss energy & materials news with host Alison Southwick. The twice-weekly show can be viewed on Tuesdays & Thursdays. It can also be found on Twitter, along with our extended coverage of the energy & materials sectors @TMFEnergy.
Since the crew wasn't able to film over Thanksgiving, energy analyst Taylor Muckerman details what he was thankful for in the energy space over the course of 2013 in this episode of "Digging for Value". Surprisingly, his choice was the growth in solar power within the United States' energy supply. Natural gas and oil growth have stolen the main stage this year, but seeing companies like SolarCity (NASDAQ: SCTY ) and SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR ) thrive built confidence that utilizing the power of the sun is here to stay. As partnerships continue to grow, 2013 likely isn't the last chance investors have to profit from companies like these two.
Will we be thankful for this company around this time next year?
