I agree, when oil spiked I thought we would get spike also. Needless to say we didn't, and that worries me. With all those news stories on alternative energy SPIR didn't do so well. Where is the Buying volume ?.
One reason is it's not a "glamour" or tech stock that will bring 10 or 20 percent gain in days. Everyone is looking to make a quick buck. It will go over the long run, especially as RE gains wider acceptance.
