If you're not a subscriber to our Motley Fool Rule Breakers newsletter service, you may not even realize that today is the third Wednesday of the month. It's the day when the latest issue of the monthly newsletter becomes available and two brand-new stock picks are revealed.
However, today's issue will be a little bit different. In last month's newsletter, David Gardner announced that the next two picks would come from a specific sector, renewable energy. More intriguingly, he asked the subscriber community to nominate their favorite picks in this booming space. He would limit his choices to the stocks that were brought up on the message board. Information flows both ways in an ideal world, and apparently that's the mindset in the Rule Breakers camp this week, with the community rallying behind their favorite renewable energy stocks.
Renewable energy and you
I wasn't part of the selection process for the two new picks -- sorry. Even I will have to wait with piqued curiosity. But I have spent some time checking out the posts on the renewable energy board, and I'll share a few of the pitches. Keep in mind that if I should happen to stumble across the two eventual winners, it's strictly a coincidence.

Renewing interest in renewable energy
Those were just seven of the varied subscriber submissions. Several other crafty energy, environmental, and eclectic nominations have been posted over the past four weeks. I'm as intrigued as you might be to see which two companies ultimately won David's nod of approval, but I'm finding that this is a much more diverse niche than I had originally imagined.
It's why I'm wondering whether two renewable energy growth stocks will be enough. The stories in this space just keep getting better.
If you want to check out the two picks that David ultimately settled on -- or just join the vibrant community of investors before David launches another unconventional stock-picking experiment -- consider a subscription to Motley Fool Rule Breakers. If you're still not sure, opt for a free 30-day trial subscription. It will allow you to receive the new issue that will be sent out later today, with ample time over the next few weeks to decide if you, too, are a Rule Breaker at heart.
