Over on CAPS, 576 of the 599 members who have rated A-Power -- some 96% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include lotsofmojo and titaniumsilver.

In May, lotsofmojo tapped A-Power as a powerful way to get some wind behind your portfolio:

With so many around, it is difficult to determine which solar company will survive. Seems like a good alternative might be to go with [A-Power] which is in a joint venture with GE to produce wind turbines in China.

Excellent cash position with no debt. Decent short term potential with very good long term prospects.

In an earlier pitch, titaniumsilver expands on the stock as a greenish way to earn green:

It's clear that the Chinese govt wants clean energy. A-Power makes distributed generation systems. There are several advantages to these systems, they reduce pollution, reduce dependency on unreliable central sources of electricity and pay for themselves in a few years.

A-Power has also been building up their wind turbine capacity. They will have the capacity to generate 1GW of power through wind. That matches the capacity of many solar companies yet this is not priced in the value of the stock. It's like getting the wind business for free.

A-Power is building itself into a multi-faceted solution provider of clean energy. This is the kind of company that the world will need in order to meet future energy demands.
