Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2018

Some investors are ready to write the obituary for the market phenomenon known as risk on, risk off. Long-suffering stock pickers might be tempted to do some grave dancing.

Risk on, risk off, known by the unfortunate acronym, RORO, was a dominant feature of financial markets in the aftermath of the 2008-2009 crisis. It meant that assets perceived as risky, such as stocks, commodities, and nongovernment bonds, tended to either rally or sell off in lockstep. Assets perceived as safe tended to do the same, but in the opposite direction.

Background:

To begin this article, let’s take a trip back to July 27th. AstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN) investors received the worst possible news with the news headline “AstraZeneca lung cancer immunotherapy trial failure sends shares plunging” effectively summing everything up. Shares absolutely were sent “plunging”, wiping off 10B pounds in value, the sharpest drop that the company has EVER had:

Was this drop a complete overreaction? Well, I’d say so. The MYSTIC trial was testing the immuno-oncology drug Imfinzi to further survival in lung-cancer patients rather than use chemotherapy. You may be wondering why one failed drug trial would hurt an established, tenured pharma giant. Sure, it makes sense when a biotech and small-cap pharma soars 20% or more on positive data readouts and approvals, and tanks 20% or more when there is a poor readout of regulatory roadblocks. Those companies generally do not have the capital to continue funding further operations, and were relying on their prospective treatment to further their tenure in the industry. So again, why would a company with a market cap of over $73B and cash & cash equivalents of over $5B drop the way it did? The answer lies in the IO market, and its sheer size. According to the Telegraph, the Immuno-Oncology market is valued at $8B today, and is expected to reach $50B later on. According to PMR’s latest report, the market size is supposed to reach around $27B by the year 2025. After taking this all into effect, it makes sense why AZN took the tumble it did. Lung cancer treatment is one of the biggest unmet needs in medicine, and the failure of Imfinzi in its largest trial absolutely crushed the prospects of the company breaking out a blockbuster, innovative drug. This created a ripple effect in the industry, with Merck shares moving higher as they solidified their position in lung cancer treatment. Bristol Meyers reacted in the negative, as they are testing the potential combination of Opdivo and Yervoy for their own IO trial study.

us stock market: Cummins Inc.(CMI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Making mining equipment has been a horrible business over the last few years. The industry has been hard-hit by the spending cutbacks at mine sites around the world. For example, BHP Billiton Limited trimmed its capital exploration expenditures by roughly 70% between fiscal 2013 and 2016. No wonder Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Komatsu Ltd. (NASDAQOTH:KMTUY), and Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) have been hurting. Only that looks like it’s starting to change, which means this trio could be at the top of a list of mining equipment companies to buy in 2017.

    Ever walk past a construction site? It’s hard not to be enthralled by all the heavy construction machinery moving things around. With the world’s developing economies still building at a relatively fast pace and developing economies, like the United States, in desperate need of upgrading their aging infrastructure, the companies behind that construction machinery could be just as exciting as a construction site in the years ahead. Which is why Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), and Terex Corporation (NYSE:TEX) are three of the top construction machinery stocks to look at right now.

    In Canada, for example, the company and its partners Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B) and Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) came up dry in their initial exploration attempts in the Shelburne Basin offshore Nova Scotia.

Meanwhile, ConocoPhillips recorded a total of $187 million of dry hole expenses in Canada last year after it wrote off two wells.

Acacia Communications (ACIA) delivers high-speed optical interconnect products which transform communication networks. These solutions are used by cloud infrastructure players, content and communication service providers, among others.

The company timed its IPO well earlier this year, as accelerating growth triggered a huge post-IPO momentum run in the shares. As these shares have given up 50% of their value ever since, following a subsequent share offering and 篓weaker篓 Q4 guidance, I think that appeal is improving rather rapidly at this point in time.

A Growth Story, In A Growing Industry

The issue with communication network providers is that some products can often become successful overnight, resulting in steep growth rates, yet we have seen many players which have seen the boom and consequential bust in this industry.

Acacia麓s products are designed to improve performance, capacity and reduce costs through the conversion towards a silicon-based technology. These products are sold by a direct sales force, as the company has merely 25 customers at the moment. Growing bandwidth demand as a result of video, mobile and internet of things make the strain on these networks much greater. The siliconization of optical networks can play a major role to handle the growth.
