The Next Alternative Energy Stock Poised to Explode Higher

Stocks in this article: ZBBNFECACFN

DELAFIELD, Wis. (Stockpickr) -- U.S. equity markets are once again under selling pressure today, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average trading down by 30 points, the S&P 500 off by 3 points and the tech-heavy Nasdaq trending lower by 11 points.

>>3 Big-Volume Stocks in Breakout Territory

Despite this weak action in the broad markets, there are still plenty of stocks that are bucking the downtrend and moving higher. The small-cap world is where I like to turn my focus on down days like today, since it's very easy to find stocks and sectors that are displaying relative strength and have actual buyers. One area that's been showing some relative strength of late, especially today, is the alternative energy complex and the energy-saving and infrastructure product players.

Just take a look at the performance of NF Energy Saving (NFEC) today, which is ripping ridiculously higher by over 90% with monster upside volume. Volume today has already surpassed 2.78 million shares, which is well above its three-month average action of 78,928 shares. NF Energy Saving manufactures flow control systems and industrial valve components for use in thermal and nuclear power generation plants and national and regional water supply projects, as well as municipal water, gas and heat supply pipeline networks. This company also specializes in energy saving technology consulting.

>>5 Toxic Stocks to Sell Before It's Too Late

Another name in the alternative energy space that's exploding higher today is Acorn Energy (ACFN), which provides technology-driven solutions for energy infrastructure asset management worldwide. This company offers oil and gas sensor systems, a fiber optic sensing system for the energy, commercial security and defense markets. Shares of ACFN are ripping to the upside today by 30% with heavy upside volume. Volume so far has registered 1.94 million shares, which is well above its three-month average action of 212,912 shares.

Three more alternative energy players, all based in China, that are ripping to the upside today are THT Heat Transfer Technology (THTI), China Ming Yang Wind Power Group (MY), and Andatee China Marine Fuel Services (AMCF).

>>5 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings

As you can see from these examples, the alternative energy and energy-saving infrastructure players are ignoring the market weakness and finding real buyers. This sector is in play with the bulls, and money is quickly flowing into other names as traders look to find the next big winner.
