Study: Companies that Disclose “Green” Efforts see a Spike in Stock Prices

1 post / 0 new

" Going “green” helps company stock. According to a joint UC Davis and UC Berkeley study released on January 29, companies that disclose “green” efforts see a spike in stock prices. The report, written by Paul Griffin of UCD and Yuan Sun of UCB, studied 172 companies that made voluntary disclosures of carbon-emission information between 2000 and 2010. In the five days surrounding these announcements, companies saw an average of nearly half a percent increase in stock prices. For small companies, “green” announcements had an even greater positive effect on stock prices. "

Why the House of Representatives Doesn’t Represent Americans

One of the really weird ironies of politics these days is the huge divergence between what the American people actually want and what the radical right-wingers in Washington actually do. You won’t hear this on Fox So-Called News, but right now the American people are as progressive as they ever have been.

Don’t believe me? Just check the polls.
