Green Stock Picks

T. Boone Pickens and The "Pickens Plan" Could Make You Wealthy By Investing in Green Stocks - Wind Energy, VWS, SUZLON, CWP, BBW, GE, SI, FPL, ZOLT, OC, ABB, CPTC, ITC, NGG, PWR, GRH

T. Boone Pickens owns 40% of a company called Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE). This is a company that provides natural gas for vehicle fleets in the U.S. and Canada. CLNE designs, builds, finances, and operates the fueling stations.

T. Boone Pickens owns 12% of Westport Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ:WPRT) a leading developer of environmental technologies that enable vehicles to operate on clean-burning alternative fuels.

WRPT works with global automotive leaders such as Cummins Inc., Ford, and BMW to incorporate their technologies into leading manufacturers engines and to explore future commercial opportunities for clean vehicles.

Pickens� new company, Mesa Water, has been buying up ground water rights in Roberts County, Texas - 200,000 acres in all. He says that over a 30-year period, he expects to make more than $1 billion on his investment of $75 million.

Many others are coming to the realization that water is too cheap. Hence, water rights are a great buy today.

As an individual investor, you can�t trade water rights very easily. But you can invest in a company that owns almost as much water as Pickens does � in actuality, the acre feet that this Company owns are more valuable than what Pickens purchased.

PICO Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ:PICO) together with its subsidiaries, engages in the ownership and development of real estate properties. It owns land and the related mineral rights and water rights in Nevada. The company is involved in water resource development business, such as developing new sources of water for water utilities, municipalities, developers, or industrial users. In addition, PICO Holdings engages in the acquisition and financing of businesses. It operates in the United States and Europe. The company was founded in 1981 and is based in La Jolla, California.

T. Boone Pickens thinks he'll earn $1 billion on his $76 million investment - or basically 13 times his money. PICO - already in this business, with substantial expertise and a portfolio of more valuable water rights - could do even better.
