All companies have a level of risk that comes from changes in the market and changes in the economy. Investment and share assessments will fluctuate in value. Losses are possible.
New technologies, which we introduce, may be feasible, but not cost effective. The funds may not choose among them wisely. Interest in achieving a clean environment may diminish.
Government policy and community views, as well as concerns and concepts change. We try to change with them. New technologies appear and we try to identify them right away. There is no assurance that we will have the wisdom to do so. Because of market conditions and the need to make choices, we may not be able to invest in all interesting technologies or bring the most promising products all the time.
Investments in alternative energy and companies with environmental products are subject to political priorities and changing government regulation. For example, should the government reduce environmental regulation or its enforcement, then companies that produce products designed to provide a clean environment, like NGV Texas, are less likely to prosper. Potential advantages of alternative energy may be slow in development and recognition.
