Investing in Global Warming

The signs of the increasingly warming world are becoming clearer, whether global warming is something to become alarmed over or whether it is here to stay is still questionable. In an environment of global warming there will be companies taking advantage of the warming environment to produce profits. Listed below are a few to consider.

Duke Energy (DUK)
Duke Energy, a big electricity producer with assets located at the United States of America and Canada is one of them. With the interest of Duke Energy in cleaner technology, the company will surely bring in more profits, as the government and pro-earth groups will give greater support to them during a period of global warming. When Duke Energy was forced to resort to a more environmental friendly energy alternative, like nuclear energy, the company’s profits have actually increased. Duke Energy could see more downside before upside and a convenient way to take advantage of the upside without experiencing a lot of downside is by using protective put options, specifically a married put position. A married put stock options position is currently available for Duke Energy for April stock options expiration with an infinite upside potential and a maximum loss potential of 3.8%.
