Suntech Power is a profitable Chinese solar energy company whose revenue is expected to grow 126% this year and who has been awarded an exclusive contract to supply a 130 KW solar energy system for the 2008 Olympic Games that will be held in Beijing. However with the extreme volatility in alternative energy stocks in recent weeks, a shortage in silicon that is required to make solar panels and Suntech's high valuation (P/E of 96.17 and P/S of 15.02), I decided to keep Suntech on my watch list for now.
Syneron Medical is a company that makes aesthetic medical products and has been covered extensively by fellow blogger Subbu in this post and this earlier post from February. While I really like the current valuation of Syneron, I like the valuation and future prospects of Intel (INTC) much better. Hence Syneron Medical remains on the watch list for now.
