Holy cow.

Normally, I check my holdings a couple of times a day via the spreadsheet I'm using to track this whole portfolio, but today I didn't. So imagine my surprise when I saw that shares had rocketed up 19.2% today to close at $4.91 apiece.

The only piece of news that I could find was this TMF article: http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/02/19/solar-stock... If the hypothesis is true, that Wall Street is getting turned on to solar company's stocks again, this could be a very good year for this holding of the MUE port, the biggest in terms of dollars invested. And that would have nice implications for the overall portfolio's performance.

The port has been driven recently by strong gains in Netflix (which I managed to purchase twice, at $65.56 and $80.86). Now if Power-One could do the same this year (I've purchased six times since the portfolio opened at prices from $8.83 down to $4.10), I'd be sitting pretty. :-)

As with all else, we'll just have to wait and see...

Cheers,
Jim
