Solar projections are too bright
Analysts and investors have their expectations set to high for this industry.
Am I the only one who is having butterflies about the solar industry? Is there a market for this resource, or is it all just smoke and mirrors?
Using Barchart, I found 4 solar stocks that on average are up over 20% in the last month alone. The brokerages have fantastic projections and there is very high investor sentiment, but my intuition is holding me back from making a recommendation. Here's what others think. Let me hear your opinions.

Someone must be wrong when someone else is right
Everybody's wrong everybody's right
You tell me that I'm wrong
Then you tell me that I'm right
