Guggenheim Solar Energy ETF (TAN) -2.4%
The solar energy industry is taking a hit, retreating back to levels seen prior to the fund's 2011 run up.
Though gut-wrenching, TAN's back-and-forth performance in 2011 is not surprising given the volatile nature of the alternative energy industry. Investors willing to try their luck with this fund will want to keep exposure small.
