Alternative energy mutual funds remain a strong investment sector, showing extremely robust returns in June. On average, MFs gained 28.1% for the year, and every fund posted double digit returns. Also without exception, all funds are up for the past three months.

More importantly, long-term returns for alternative energy mutual funds have greatly improved in the past year. In June 2013, the average three-year return was 3.0%, with three out of 10 funds showing losses.

Green ETFs Increase Gains

Green ETFs have significantly increased their gains since May, up 37.6% on average for the year. This is substantial improvement compared to the 25.7% average annual gain a month ago.

There is only one fund showing a loss for the year, Market Vectors Rare Earth/Strategic Metals (REMX). Otherwise all ETs have returned near 20% or better for the year. The two solar ETFs, Guggenheim Solar (TAN) and Market Vectors Solar Energy ETF (KWT) show the greatest gains by far.
