With CSCO's splashy entrance to the smart grid party, an interesting opportunity is coming about. ITRI is a smart-metering company very well positioned as a pure-play to the smart grid space. (They make the physical meters used... one piece of the multi-layered smart grid pie.) My favorite is GE for the overall alternative energy push, but ITRI is a very good concentrated play.
After today's close, ITRI announced they will be doing an offering on June 5th, and the stock subsequently dropped after hours. IMO, this may present a buying opportunity for anyone interested in playing the smart grid push. Not only is it inexpensive for the level of future estimates I have been observing w/respect to the smart grid space, the technicals agree as well. (CSCO recently made the most ambitious of projections for the space to grow +20% a year to 2014.)
A nice initial entry would be near the 50SMA, but 50-51 is where I am looking to get in.
