Emotional Investing

Nicole and I take X percent of our income each year and put in various retirement investments. We had a bit left over for 2008 and I've been wanting to invest in wind energy. Specifically, I'm looking for a wind turbine manufacturer who is well-established elsewhere and trying to break into the burgeoning U.S. market. (If you find such a company, and it can be easily traded in the U.S., let me know.)

While researching this I came across PWND. The techie in my wanted to snatch it up just so I could say I have stock in PWND. I mean, that would be l33t, wouldn't it? Anyway, I had to pass it up. What little I know about investing in stocks has taught me to stay away from ETFs.

Back to the research...
