Best Stocks To Own For 2019: Brookfield Renewable Powerr Fund(BEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP) has shed about 12% of its value this year, which is a bit of a head-scratcher since the company has gotten off to an excellent start. Not only did it post strong numbers to end 2017 and solid results in 2018’s first quarter, but it increased its distribution to investors another 5% and boosted its stake in another renewable power company. Because of that disconnect, Brookfield tops my list of renewable energy stocks that I’d buy right now.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Renewable energy is a hot sector as the world increasingly focuses on generating electricity from clean sources that provide an ever refreshed wellspring of power. But before you run out and buy just any old renewable power company, you need to step back and take a deeper look at the businesses you are considering. Two stocks you should be looking at today are Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P.’s (NYSE:BEP) and NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), both of which have secret weapons as they grow in the hot renewable power space.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    There’s no question that a company like Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (NYSE:BEP) is a great direct play on renewable power. Roughly 80% of the company’s power is hydroelectric, with the rest made up largely of wind and solar. Moreover, it has exposure to Brazil (20% of generation) and Columbia (15%), in addition to the United States (60%). Much of the company’s growth has come from acquisitions, and long-term contracts back up the bulk of its revenues. It’s a perfectly fine renewable power investment.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    If you’re looking for a solid dividend yield from an energy stock, two names that might be on your list are ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) and Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP). While one is the epitome of big oil and the other is more representative of the future of energy, both are known for their high dividend yields, strong cash flows that keep those payouts secure, and long track records of growing their dividend payments on a regular basis.

    Pattern Energy Group Inc. (NASDAQ:PEGI) offers investors an impressive 8.4% yield. That sounds like a pretty rewarding way for income investors to invest in renewable power, which is the company’s focus. In fact, it makes renewable-power peer Brookfield Renewable Partners LP’s (NYSE:BEP) yield of 6.3% look small by comparison. But don’t chase that higher yield until you read this, because you’re likely to decide that Brookfield Renewable Partners, despite having a lower yield, is the better dividend stock.
