I thought about the old AC/DC question that ruined Edison. What I seem to recall from an old engineering class is that AC electricity can be transmitted over long distances with less energy loss than DC. As for danger, at the same amp/power level, DC is the better way to kill someone.
Below is my interpretation of the split.
The original HTZ (HTZ-old) splits into Hertz Global Holding and HERC.
For 100 shares of HTZ-old splits to become:
20 HTZ-new (1-5 reverse split)
6 HERC (1-15 split), remainder in cash
I am long SEDG. But I will offer this bear case:
SEDG is Israeli. Many countries boycott Israeli products. Even in the USA, there are various movements to boycott Israel. In North NJ, a state senator is pushing legislation to prevent boycotts (at least in NJ).
SEDG has great products, great technology. Solar is in a secular growth phase. Therefore I am long, despite above mentioned headwinds.
