In Q2 2015, Tesla Motors made its foray into home energy storage in a move which saw it evolve from a high-end electric vehicle manufacturer. The most surprising detail about the launch of the Powerwall, a lithium-ion battery that can power your home, was the price. The starting price of $3,000 for a 7kWh Powerwall or $3,500 for 10kWh design was astonishing low with pre-launch expectation topping$10,000. Benchmark Mineral Intelligence estimates that the 10kWh Powerwall battery alone – minus the pack

  • In Commodities Meltdown, Gas Emerges as Fleeting Bright Spot

    In a global meltdown, one commodity has gone against the grain -- for now. While most everything from oil to gold has tumbled over the past three months, sending the Bloomberg Commodity Index to a 13-year low this week, U.S. natural gas is up 5.5 percent. That’s because shipments of the fuel are limited to North America, where hot weather has raised power plant demand. “North America has been a gas island while commodities like oil are traded worldwide,” said Charles Blanchard, an analyst fo

    Exact Sciences (EXAS - Get Report) shares have pulled back in the past month due to a secondary offering and profit taking after a huge run-up. If the Preventive Services Task Force gives the company's Cologuard cancer screening product a high rating, however, the stock will take off, said Garvin Jabusch, chief investment officer for Green Alpha Advisors.

    A drop in oil prices this month is likely to be short-term and will not deflect OPEC from its policy of keeping output high to defend market share, delegates from Gulf OPEC members and other nations said. Falling Chinese stock markets and the Greek debt crisis have raised concern about demand, while the Iranian nuclear deal could lead to higher oil exports from the Islamic Republic. Benchmark Brent crude, trading below $57 a barrel on Wednesday, has fallen more than 10 percent in July. OPEC, in a major policy
