2 Of Top 10 Stock Searches In 2013 Were For Cleantech Companies — Tesla (TSLA) & SolarCity (SCTY)

I happened to be poking around Google Trends the other day and noticed there was a section for the most-trending stocks in 2013. To my surprise, two of the top 10 companies were cleantech companies — Tesla (TSLA) (#2) and SolarCity (SCTY) (#8). Well, Tesla wasn’t a huge surprise, but really, 1/5 of the top 10 stocks are cleantech companies! That’s awesome. Tesla was also the #1-searched auto company.

The funny thing is that Tesla doesn’t even advertise. But when you create a world-leading product; your CEO is a charismatic visionary who tweets important stuff, fights back against questionable criticism, and plans to send humans to Mars; oh yeah, and your stock flies through the roof, advertising isn’t that important.

By the way, in case you weren’t aware Tesla CEO Elon Musk is also the chairman of SolarCity, which happens to be “the leader in full-service solar power systems for homes, businesses and governments.”
