The stock exchange has introduced a rough five weeks since I my annual ten clean energy stocks model portfolio on December 27. My broad market benchmark (iShares Russell 2000 index) is for the period to 5.6%. Clean energy stocks fared better, with the power shares WilderHill clean energy ETF (NYSE: PBW) by only 0.5%, as I write this. Mine is ten clean energy stocks model portfolio 0.9% in local currency, but the weakness of the Canadian dollar (minus 3.5%) and euro (minus 1.5%) turned to this in a $ fall by 1.0%.
Riskier stocks performed better in General, but with much larger differences. The first six income shares lost an average 2% with a standard deviation of 3% on $. The next four growth stocks were flat on average with a standard deviation of 8%. The two extra "speculative" picks carried speculative, with a 35% and the other to 22%, for an average of 7%.
January was pretty quiet for individual stocks in the portfolio, but where there was significant news, I place it below.
Individual camp notes
(Stand: 3 February 2014 at current prices.) "Aim high" and "low target" represent the areas within, which I predicted that these stocks would at the end of the year though I expect that a minority of these bands because of unforeseen events will differ.)

Sustainable infrastructure REIT Hannon Armstrong on the lower end of the range between my high and low targets for fast start-up based in its large dividend increase in December fell. The only slightly negative news was that an SEC filing the company explained it, had agreed to amend the terms and conditions for a portfolio loan to geothermal developer EnergySource LLC. The balance of the loan amounts to $11.8 million or 74 ? per share. If the loan in default and there was no chance for the recovery of its value, a decrease of 74 ? would be justified. This is by far not the case; a stock seems better suited than the 85 ? have acceptance, we saw a decline of approximately 5 ?. Therefore, I have the vast majority of the pull-back benefit take and concerns by $13 a excellent starting point for anyone to show that not already owned by the storage attribute.
