Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Freshman Congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and veteran lawmaker Sen. Edward Markey are introducing a resolution spelling out congressional support for a Green New Deal — an ambitious plan to remake the U.S. economy and drastically reduce the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The resolution largely sticks to a blueprint Ocasio-Cortez laid out when she proposed creating a House select committee to establish a Green New Deal. That framework called for generating 100 percent of the nation’s power from renewable sources, making all buildings energy efficient and eliminating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector and industry — all within about 10 years.

The plan also proposes massive investments in research and development to make the U.S. a leader in clean energy technology. In addition, the Green New Deal envisioned by Ocasio-Cortez aims to implement progressive policies such as a federal jobs guarantee, basic income and universal health care.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    For example, relatively small peer Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP) ended the month up 13%. ONEOK (NYSE:OKE), which is structured as a regular corporation and not a limited partnership, rose an impressive 19%. And Canadian midstream owner Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) jumped 20% (like ONEOK, Pembina is not structured as a limited partnership). The midstream sector across the board had a pretty decent month.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Luzich Partners LLC raised its position in shares of Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP) by 5.2% during the first quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The fund owned 581,601 shares of the pipeline company’s stock after acquiring an additional 28,640 shares during the period. Crestwood Equity Partners makes up about 14.6% of Luzich Partners LLC’s investment portfolio, making the stock its 2nd largest position. Luzich Partners LLC’s holdings in Crestwood Equity Partners were worth $14,889,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Oasis Midstream Partners (NYSE:OMP), and Hess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM) are far from household names. Because of that, most investors probably missed the fact that these high-yielding master limited partnerships (MLPs) have been red-hot this year. However, while all have delivered strong returns in 2018, each one still has plenty of fuel left in the tank to continue providing outsized gains in the coming years, which is why investors won’t want to keep overlooking the potential of these pipeline companies.

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks For 2019

Coal plays an integral role in meeting the ever-increasing global energy demand, thanks to rapid urbanization and modernization. Despite concerns over air pollution due to the usage of coal, its wide availability and low price compared with other conventional and alternate fuel energy sources makes it a preferred choice in most nations.

The coal industry suffered a great deal when the last U.S. administration introduced stringent emission regulations, including the Clean Power Plan. The national pollution plan, first to call for a limit on coal plant emission, targeted reduction of 32% by 2030 from 2005 levels. However, it was never put into effect due to objections raised by a coalition of coal-focused states.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    Tariffs are overshadowing the start of earnings season. This week, a variety of Wall Street banks, consumer goods, and airline companies report for the previous quarter. While profits are expected to remain strong, the outlook for the rest of the year is expected to take into account the impact of tariffs on global trade. This is likely to weigh on investor sentiment. According to a report from real estate giant REIS Inc., mall vacancies have hit a six-year high at 8.6% last quarter. The fall of brick-and-mortar stores has been fueled by the rise of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), which continues to see its stock surge to new highs. It’s not too late to get in on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of today’s shares. We’ll show you how… right here. Speaking of Amazon, the e-commerce giant recently made a big splash in the pharmacy benefits business after its purchase of online benefits provider PillPack. This purchase has many analysts convinced that Amazon is about to do to pharmacies what it has done to malls over the last decade. And while Amazon is going to be a major player in the drug-delivery business in the future, there is one stock that is going to stave off any further attack from Amazon and the delivery business. Best of all, this stock has an incredible VQScore, and it’s trading at a huge discount.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks For 2019: International Game Technology(IGT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    One of the reason suppliers like IGT (NYSE:IGT) and Scientific Games are reacting positively is because they’ll likely provide the betting infrastructure casinos use. IGT powers MGM’s playMGM app that takes sports bets in Nevada today. It could easily scale that technology nationwide. Scientific Games sees its OpenBet product suite providing similar solutions to its customers.

    The other area to look at is service providers who build the betting infrastructure for casinos. IGT (NYSE:IGT) is powering MGM’s sports betting already, and Scientific Games (NASDAQ:SGMS) announced an agreement with Caesars to use its sports betting platform in New Jersey and Mississippi. They’re in the early phases of building out sport betting businesses, and will likely be providers for most early casino sportsbooks. These companies have a lot of potential upside if sports betting takes off as casinos hope.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018

The title of this article may generate strong responses from some, who will reply: “never!” And indeed, if a value trap is defined as a stock that is not a value, then clearly a value trap is never a value. (There aren’t many rich dialetheists on Wall Street.) But let’s take a more nuanced view of a value trap and follow Investopedia.com in defining a value trap, which I quote at some length:

A value trap is a stock that appears to be cheap because the stock has been trading at low multiples of earnings, cash flow or book value for an extended time period. Value traps attract investors who are looking for a bargain because these stocks are inexpensive. The trap springs when investors buy into the company at low prices and the stock never improves. Trading that occurs at low multiples of earnings, cash flow or book value for long periods of time might indicate that the company or the entire sector is in trouble, and that stock prices may not move higher.

When is such a stock, that may not move higher and may never improve, worth buying? This article aims to provide an outline of an answer to that question. Along the way I’ll attempt to note places where I am simplifying the treatment or ignoring potentially important considerations.
