Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

It’s important for investors to know how to invest in penny stocks safely. That’s because they’re often volatile and can sometimes be fraudulent, despite offering triple-digit returns in a matter of weeks. We’ll show you our top two strategies for finding good penny stocks to buy, plus our small-cap stock pick primed for double-digit growth this year…

If you’re looking for proof of just how explosively profitable penny stocks are, Delcath Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) is a perfect piece of evidence. This company saw its stock price surge from $0.02 on June 1 to $0.19 on June 26. That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

But these triple-digit returns aren’t always justified by the company’s profits or business potential. For instance, Chinese energy company Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: CETC) saw shares jump 144% from $1.90 to $4.63 during just the first five sessions of April.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Summit Midstream Partners, LP(SMLP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, ExxonMobil’s XTO subsidiary agreed to dedicate natural gas produced from two counties in New Mexico to Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) last July. Summit is currently investing $110 million in building out a natural gas gathering and processing system to serve new wells in that area, which should be in service this month. In addition, Summit has proposed a long-haul pipeline to move gas out of the region, which would cost up to $450 million and could help support Exxon’s growing gas output from the area.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) released its quarterly earnings data on Thursday. The pipeline company reported ($0.18) EPS for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.12 by ($0.30), MarketWatch Earnings reports. Summit Midstream Partners had a return on equity of 12.62% and a net margin of 17.59%. The business had revenue of $117.32 million during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $106.68 million.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Exxon is also working with Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) on the development of the Double E pipeline, which is a regional gas pipeline in the Permian. Exxon not only signed up to be a major shipper on Double E but has the option to acquire a 50% interest in the project. That equity stake means Exxon could help fund as much as half of the construction costs, which would ease the financial burden on the cash-strapped Summit Midstream. While Summit Midstream has yet to sanction the project, the company believes it will soon have enough shippers to move forward, which puts it on track to have the pipeline in service by the second quarter of 2021.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, Exxon signed on to be a foundation shipper on Summit Midstream’s (NYSE:SMLP) Double E Pipeline by committing to a firm transportation agreement for up to half of the pipeline’s capacity. Further, Exxon has the right to acquire up to a 50% interest in the pipeline from Summit, which could help with securing project-related funding. By getting Exxon’s backing, Summit is increasingly likely to move forward with this pipeline.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Jabil Circuit Inc.(JBL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market had an up-and-down day on Tuesday, with early gains giving way to small losses for most major benchmarks by the end of the session. Despite the modest declines, indexes remain near record highs, and even the ongoing back-and-forth of trade-related comments — both conciliatory and threatening — hasn’t done anything more than put a minor dent in a major advance for stocks in the third quarter. Yet some companies suffered from bad news. CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Jabil (NYSE:JBL), and Neogen (NASDAQ:NEOG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

The cannabis industry is booming, with $6.7 billion in sales in North America for 2016. And sales are only going to increase, with analysts projecting $20 billion in sales by 2020.

That’s nearly a 200% increase in just four years.

That’s why each week, we provide Money Morning readers with the top marijuana stocks to watch.

But before getting into the top cannabis stocks on our watch list, we wanted to make sure our readers were aware of the risks of investing in pot stocks.

The first issue is marijuana is still illegal under federal law.

Even though some states have legalized both recreational and medical marijuana, the federal status of marijuana makes pot stocks speculative investments for now.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks For 2019

If there’s one thing Americans are unfortunately good at, it’s racking up debt, and new data from Northwestern Mutual further drives home this point. Specifically, the average level of personal debt, not including mortgages, climbed to $38,000 this year, which represents an almost $1,000 increase from 2017.

Here’s another troubling statistic: A good 20% of Americans allocate anywhere from 50% to 100% of their income to repaying debt, while 13% are convinced they’ll be in debt for the rest of their lives.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The S&P 500 stock posting the largest daily percentage loss ahead of the close Tuesday was American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) which traded down about 4.5% at $47.57.

    Wednesday was a great day on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average pushing ahead to gains of around 300 points and other major benchmarks following suit with similar-sized rises. Fears about potential European financial problems vanished as quickly as they had appeared on Tuesday, and bounces in crude oil prices and interest rates seemed to confirm that the previous mind-set favoring continued growth for the overall economy was back in place. Yet some companies still had bad news that sent their shares lower. Michael Kors Holdings (NYSE:KORS), Chico’s FAS (NYSE:CHS), and Daktronics (NASDAQ:DAKT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Monday was a big day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks moving generally higher to start the week. Strong performance in the energy market once again led stocks higher, including a nice gain in oil prices to move above the $72-per-barrel mark. The small-cap Russell 2000 Index hit another record high, but some companies reported news that prevented them from participating in the broader-based rally. Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ:FITB), Qudian (NYSE:QD), and U.S. Steel (NYSE:X) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    One seemingly interesting bright spot though now that the sector has come off a bit is steel. Two steel stocks in United States Steel Corporation (X) and Steel Dynamics, Inc. (STLD) not only are looking technically attractive once again, they’re offering some nice value on a fundamental basis, albeit for very different reasons.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    United States Steel Corp. (NYSE: X) is not feeling any love from investors after earnings. Maybe tariffs and fears of a trade war really don’t help when it hurts a company’s customers and end-users. The reality is that there are concerns over tariffs, but there is also concern about operational issues in North America affecting the results and making for a bumpy outlook in 2018.

Almost three weeks after the Department of Education stopped sharing information with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the bureau has ordered Collegiate Student Loan Trusts and its debt collector Transworld Systems to pay $21 million in fines and restitution for illegal debt collection lawsuits.

    Tuesday was another good day on Wall Street, thanks largely to diminished concerns about trade disputes between the U.S. and China.

Yet some stocks suffered from negative news. Tupperware Brands (NYSE:TUP), SBA Communications (NASDAQ:SBAC), and American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL) were among the worst performers on the day.

    Keurigs plight (actually, JABs) is worsening, with the K-cup market slowing to almost no growth now, and Keurig continuing to lose own brands share. Starbucks (SBUX) echoed the notion of a K-cup market slowdown at its seminar on Wednesday (and is guiding for its [consumer packaged goods, or CPG,] growth below recent trends), but it expects to increase its share of total CPG coffee to 20% from 15%. Come early February it will be a year since the closing of the Keurig deal for JAB Holdings. The pressure on JAB is more significant if we take into account the high leverage of the deal (JAB contributed one fourth of the $12Bn price tag). It is a tough predicament. On the one hand we argue that to make that deal work, they need to buy more (own) brands either from the retail channel (that can be extended to CPG: Dunkin (DNKN)? Panera (PNRA)?), or outright buy CPG brands (like the entire Kraft Heinz portfolio, and or Tata Groups Eight OClock brand). But can/how do they fund these deals? Maybe Mars and Warren Buffett (Mars is involved in office coffee with Starbucks), private equity, and or 3G can help? While this note is not about Positive-rated Mondelez, we have mentioned before a scenario where Kraft Heinz buys Mondelez and partly funds the deal by selling its own CPG coffee business (~$3Bn we say) to JAB as well as divests the Mondelez 20% plus stakes in Keurig (North America) and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (Western Europe), which together at this stage are worth ~$7-8Bn. But, yes, JAB will need deep-pocket partners and generous lenders. Net, JAB needs to do something soon.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Net operating cash flow has increased to $743.90 million or 10.04% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 0.44%.

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC’s earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC increased its bottom line by earning $4.70 versus $3.49 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($7.39 versus $4.70).

     

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    The stock has risen over the past year as investors have generally rewarded the company for its earnings growth and other positive factors like the ones we have cited in this report. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
