SunPower, solar names finish glowing session

|About: Invesco Solar Portfolio ETF (TAN)|By:, SA News Editor

Solar stocks (TAN +3.3%) shone brightly in today's trade despite the lack of an obvious catalyst, as the recent spike in oil prices may have helped alternative energy names appear more attractive, reports.

Today's strongest gainers generally are more closely related to home systems or installation service providers rather than the more commodity-like photovoltaic manufacturers.

Major movers: SPWR +12%, ENPH +7.8%, RUN +6.2%, SEDG +4.7%, VSLR +4.3%, TERP +4%, FSLR +3.7%, CSIQ +2.1%.
