    5. Stock Analysis: Active Power (flywheels)

      Stock Analysis: Active Power (flywheels)

      Active Power appears to have a very reliable green technology with exposure to a vital and growing area of the energy market. The stock has fallen so far and the valuation so low that very little has to go right for it to double from current levels and still be relatively inexpensive. Based on the strong risk/reward profile at current levels, I am going to give the new CEO the benefit of the doubt and endorse Active Power as my best way to play the coming boom in grid scale energy storage and power regulation solutions.
