  • Look out Tesla, there's a new kid in town.

    Electric cars are becoming all the rage. And this time, it's not about Tesla.

    Chinese electric vehicle maker Kandi Technologies (KNDI) has been moving ahead with an aggressive plan to bring 5,000 to 10,000 electric vehicles to market in the next year or so.

    And Kandi's stock has nearly doubled since June 1. Seems like it's not just Americans who are enamored with the idea of 'plug and drive.'

  • First Solar gets burned on stock offering

    Shares of First Solar cooled Wednesday after the solar panel maker said it planned to sell 8.5 million shares in a secondary stock offering.

    Secondary offerings are always good news-bad news situations.

    First the good news. First Solar's stock has rallied nearly 70% this year, ahead of the offering. Demand for solar panels has been growing. The company swung to a profit in the first quarter.

    That creates prime conditions for the company MORE

  • Dole's stock goes bananas over CEO's bid

    Investors welcomed Dole CEO David Murdock's bid to take the international fruit company private Tuesday.

    Murdock offered $12 a share for the remaining 60% of Dole (DOLE) that he doesn't already own. Murdock returned to the helm of Dole earlier this year after David DeLorenzo left to lead Dole's Asia packaged food business as part of its sale to Itochu Corp. in Japan.

  • SodaStream fizzles as buyout rumors fade

    SodaStream lost some of its fizz Thursday after PepsiCo debunked rumors that it might buy the soda maker.

    Earlier this week, shares of SodaStream (SODA ) rallied on chatter that Coca-Cola might be interested.

    If either panned out, it would be somewhat ironic. Earlier this year, SodaStream's Super Bowl ad, which touted its reusable bottle in a diss to Pepsi (PEP) and Coke (KO), never aired.

    JPMorgan analyst John Faucher said it was MORE

  • Can Amazon deliver groceries too?

    Amazon may have started out as an online bookseller but the Seattle-based company has quickly evolved into the world's largest online retailer. And now Amazon is looking to take over the online grocery business.

    According to a Reuters report, Amazon is "planning a major roll-out of an online grocery business that it has been quietly developing for years."

    Amazon (AMZN) has been experimenting with grocery delivery service AmazonFresh in the Seattle area MORE

  • Tesla stock keeps zooming higher

    Shares of Tesla Motors drifted higher Tuesday ahead of the electric car company's annual shareholder meeting.

    Tesla (TSLA) shares have surged more than 180% this year, although the stock has pulled back from a high above $110 last month.

    Investors are keeping an eye on the meeting for any announcements that could drive the stock back up, but so far the news has been pretty dull.

    Tesla executives apparently discussed the company's warranty MORE

  • Gold regains some luster

    Stocks have been on a roller coaster ride over the past couple of weeks. Bond yields are creeping higher. And it looks like that's created the perfect conditions for gold to regain favor with investors.

    Gold prices nudged back above $1,400 an ounce for the first time in two weeks Thursday. That may not seem that dramatic, but for an asset that investors had been shunning lately, it may signal more MORE

  • Ford stock revs up to a new high

    Ford is in focus, and investors like what they see.

    The American car manufacturer's stock rose 3% to a new 52-week high Tuesday, and is up 18% for the year.

    Ford (F) recently told investors that it plans to roll out more vehicles by expanding its U.S. manufacturing capacity.

    Analysts at JPMorgan (JPM) told investors Tuesday that they think the stock has room to run to $16 from a little over $15 now.

    The automaker MORE

  • HP rallies 14%, trouncing broader sell-off

    As markets around the globe remain steeped in red, one stock is bucking the trend: Hewlett-Packard (HPQ).

    HP is riding the wave of Meg Whitman's turnaround plan. The CEO said she's "encouraged" by the results so far, but cautioned it will take some time.

    The company reported earnings late Wednesday that topped notoriously low forecasts and issued an improved profit outlook. So, even though sales are still not quite up to par, MORE

  • SolarCity surges to new high

    Talk about a warm-up.

    Investors can't seem to get enough of companies that harness the sun's power. Shares of SolarCity (SCTY) soared to an all-time high of $31.89 on Monday.

    The company has only been public for five months and shares have nearly quadrupled from their $8 IPO price back in December.
