Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

A second round of talks on renegotiating NAFTA will kick off Friday in Mexico City, where officials from the U.S., Mexico and Canada will discuss how to modernize the trade pact, even as President Trump repeatedly threatens to abandon the accord if it doesn’t meet his demands.

New proposals are expected to be introduced this weekend, according to Raul Urteaga Trani, a Mexican official who is advising his country’s trade negotiators. But he declined to say what specifically will be discussed.

Mexico has frequently said the 23-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement must be modernized, with improvements needed in the energy and e-commerce sectors, according to Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray .

Trump, however, believes the deal needs a complete overhaul, calling it the “worst trade deal ever made.” He has also threatened to pull the U.S. out of the pact.

“Hopefully we can renegotiate it, but if we can’t, we’ll terminate it and we’ll start all over again,” Trump said during a speech in Missouri on Wednesday.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Murphy Oil Corporation(MUR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Today, it was all about oil afterOPEC “reached an understanding” on capping oil production. And that made Murphy Oil (MUR) the hottest stock in the S&P 500.

  • [By Joshua Bondy]

    Murphy Oil (NYSE: MUR  ) has already spun off its US retail operations into Murphy Oil USAandis exploring the possibility of spinning off its U.K. refining operations. Divesting its refineries will help direct excess cash to developing new fields.

    Murphy USA (MUSA) first caught my attention after Southeastern Asset Management acquired a massive stake ($668mm) in its former parent company Murphy Oil Corporation (MUR) in Q1 2013. One thing about Murphy Oil Corporation I noticed after an initial glance through their 10-K and annual report was its ownership of a valuable fuel and convenience retailer segment with high ROIC, valuable real estate, low CAPEX requirements, and relatively decent growth prospects that was under-followed and whose underlying value was concealed by the parent company’s core production and exploration business.

    It wasn’t just Marathon that got clipped as the eight worst-performing stocks in the S&P 500 came from the energy sector, including Murphy Oil (MUR), which fell 6.7% to $25.87, Devon Energy (DVN), which slid 6.5% to $40.72, and Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which stumbled 6.1% to $4.94. No surprise, then, that the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) slumped 2.6% to $69.65.

    Before Tuesday, Big Oil’s credit ratings had been left largely intact by S&P. But with oil sinking back to $30 a barrel, the ratings firm took action by downgrading Chevron (CVX), EOG Resources (EOG), Apache (APA), Devon Energy (DVN), Hess (HES), Marathon Oil (MRO), Murphy Oil (MUR), Continental Resources (CLR) and Southwestern Energy (SWN).

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Devon Energy Corporation(DVN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.

    The failure of Russia and others to fulfill their obligations are coming at a time when U.S. shale production is starting to ramp back up. Shale producers such as Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD) and Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) have already released growth-focused budgets to capture the benefits of an improving oil market. In Pioneer Natural Resources’ case, it expects to spend $2.8 billion this year to operate 18 drilling rigs in the Permian Basin and restart its drilling program in the Eagle Ford. Those rigs should enable the company to drill enough wells to grow its production by 15% to 18% over last year’s average. Meanwhile, Devon Energy expects to spend between $2 billion to $2.3 billion on drilling this year, which should fuel 13% to 17% oil production growth by the fourth quarter versus last year’s final quarter.

    While crude prices stumbled into 2016, they found their footing by mid-year and roared back to life, ending the year up about 42%. Those rising prices lifted most oil stocks.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: CGG(CGG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Friday afternoon, the energy sector proved to be a source of strength for the market. Leading the sector was strength from CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) and Geospace Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: GEOS).

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) shares shot up 32 percent to $7.15 after the company reported an agreement in principle on financial restructuring plan with main creditors and DNCA.

  • [By Jonas Elmerraji]

    First up is French oil service firm CGG Veritas (CGG)
    . The Eurozone-based energy stock hasn’t exactly posted blockbuster performance in 2013, but investors who ignore CGG for the final stretch of the year could be making a big mistake. That’s because of a bullish technical pattern that’s emerging in shares right now.

    CGG spent most of the last eight months looking anything but bullish. But an ascending triangle pattern is changing that. The pattern is formed by horizontal resistance to the upside at $26, and uptrending support to the below shares. Basically, as CGG bounces in between those two technical levels, it’s getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above $26. When that happens, traders have a buy signal.

    The ascending triangle pattern in CGG Veritas isn’t exactly textbook. That’s because the setup is forming at the bottom of a downtrend, rather than in the middle of an uptrend – but it’s a mistake to get caught up on the textbook pictures of what trading patterns are supposed to look like. On a move through $26, the trading implications are just as actionable.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019

Late last year, Japan legalized casinos in the country, opening up a gaming industry that could generate as much as $30 billion a year in revenues and become the second-largest casino market in the world. As several players scout for licenses, Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS) is ready to invest heavily in the region, committing to an initial investment of $10 billion. While this is a significant number, if Las Vegas Sands is able to capture a decent share in the market, it would make sense given the revenue potential of the market. Currently, Macau and Singapore are the largest value drivers of the company, together accounting for more than 80% of its valuation.

The company is heavily dependent on Macau for revenues, and regulation changes in the region have impacted it negatively. At its peak in 2013, Macau’s gaming market had reached a size of $45 billion. However, after stricter regulations imposed by Chinese regulators, revenues started slumping. In 2016, the total amount won by casinos in the region stood at nearly $28 billion. Japan is likely to emerge as a huge market for casinos, with annual revenue estimates ranging from $10 billion to $30 billion.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dustin Blitchok]

    Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO) was upgraded from Neutral to Positive at Susquehanna on Friday after the oil giant sold off its Canadian subsidiary for $2.5 billion and bought 71,000 acres of oil fields in New Mexico for $1.1 billion.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Marathon Oil (MRO) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after oil tumbled after data pointed to higher inventories of crude.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Marathon Oildropped 8.7% to $14.87, while the S&P 500 fell 0.2% to 2,362.98, as Front Month Nymex Crude futures for April delivery slid 5.4% to $50.28., leading some to wonder if the price oil could drop below $50 a barrel.

    It wasn’t just Marathon that got clipped as the eight worst-performing stocks in the S&P 500 came from the energy sector, including Murphy Oil (MUR), which fell 6.7% to $25.87, Devon Energy (DVN), which slid 6.5% to $40.72, and Chesapeake Energy (CHK), which stumbled 6.1% to $4.94. No surprise, then, that the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) slumped 2.6% to $69.65.

    The oil rout began after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that U.S. oil inventories rose by 8.2 million barrels to reach $518.4 million, a record level.

    Marathon Oil’s market capitalization fell to $12.6 billion today from $13.8 billion yesterday. It reported a net loss of $2.1 billion on sales of $4.1 billion in 2016.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Marathon Oil (MRO) surged to the top of the S&P 500 today as oil surged 9.3% after OPEC agreed to cut production and giving energy stocks a boost.

    Shares of Marathon Oil jumped 21% to $18.06, while the S&P 500 fell 0.3% to 2,198.81, and the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) climbed 5.1% to $74.43.

    In a note published on Nov. 21, Morgan Stanley’sEvan Calio and team named Marathon Oil as one of the four stocks they expected to outperform if OPEC actually delivered a production cut:

    Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.

    Good call. Not only did Marathon soar, but Devon Energy jumped 15% to $48.33, Anadarko Petroleum climbed 15% to $69.15, and Continental Resources surged 23% to $58.01.

    Cramer said he tried to buck this trend by investing in EOG Resources (EOG) and Marathon Oil (MRO) but was wrong on both counts. In the case of EOG, even having the best properties wasn’t enough to ward off the collapse in oil prices. Meanwhile, Marathon’s decision to spin off its refining business left it with no cushion to stem its losses.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Watch For 2019: CGG(CGG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Friday afternoon, the energy sector proved to be a source of strength for the market. Leading the sector was strength from CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) and Geospace Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: GEOS).

  • [By Jonas Elmerraji]

    First up is French oil service firm CGG Veritas (CGG)
    . The Eurozone-based energy stock hasn’t exactly posted blockbuster performance in 2013, but investors who ignore CGG for the final stretch of the year could be making a big mistake. That’s because of a bullish technical pattern that’s emerging in shares right now.

    CGG spent most of the last eight months looking anything but bullish. But an ascending triangle pattern is changing that. The pattern is formed by horizontal resistance to the upside at $26, and uptrending support to the below shares. Basically, as CGG bounces in between those two technical levels, it’s getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above $26. When that happens, traders have a buy signal.

    The ascending triangle pattern in CGG Veritas isn’t exactly textbook. That’s because the setup is forming at the bottom of a downtrend, rather than in the middle of an uptrend – but it’s a mistake to get caught up on the textbook pictures of what trading patterns are supposed to look like. On a move through $26, the trading implications are just as actionable.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

Big Pharma has a new contender to worry about…

Tech giant Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) has hired a small team of biomedical science engineers to develop revolutionary blood sugar sensors, according to an April 13 report by CNBC.

In fact, the team has been quietly developing the devices since before the death of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

If successful, the advance could help millions of diabetes patients and turn the Apple Watch – which the sensors are rumored to pair with – from a “nice to have” into a “must have.”

And now, at a time when Big Pharma has been put under the spotlight for exuberant drug costs, unfair pricing practices, and outrageous CEO behavior, Apple may be in the perfect position to snap up market share…

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Own Right Now: CGG(CGG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Friday afternoon, the energy sector proved to be a source of strength for the market. Leading the sector was strength from CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) and Geospace Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: GEOS).

  • [By Jonas Elmerraji]

    First up is French oil service firm CGG Veritas (CGG)
    . The Eurozone-based energy stock hasn’t exactly posted blockbuster performance in 2013, but investors who ignore CGG for the final stretch of the year could be making a big mistake. That’s because of a bullish technical pattern that’s emerging in shares right now.

    CGG spent most of the last eight months looking anything but bullish. But an ascending triangle pattern is changing that. The pattern is formed by horizontal resistance to the upside at $26, and uptrending support to the below shares. Basically, as CGG bounces in between those two technical levels, it’s getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above $26. When that happens, traders have a buy signal.

    The ascending triangle pattern in CGG Veritas isn’t exactly textbook. That’s because the setup is forming at the bottom of a downtrend, rather than in the middle of an uptrend – but it’s a mistake to get caught up on the textbook pictures of what trading patterns are supposed to look like. On a move through $26, the trading implications are just as actionable.

General Motors Co.’s (NYSE: GM) Chevy Bolt may be the best reviewed electric car in America. It has just won the Motor Trend 2017 “Car of the Year.” However, sales of the car are likely to be weak. Electric car buyers are few and far between.

Motor Trend editors wrote:

For only the second time in the awards’ seven decades, the sound of electrical energy being converted into motion and the sound of the automotive world shifting on its axis convinced the MOTOR TREND judges to select the Chevrolet Bolt EV as this year’s Car of the Year winner.

The Bolt EV was the first battery-powered vehicle to be conceived by GM to be a viable, affordable, mass-market, game-changing electric car, and just two numbers show why. The EPA has certified the Bolt EV will travel 238 miles on a full charge, and it costs only $29,995 after taking into consideration a $7,500 federal tax rebate.

Following a week of testing at the Hyundai-Kia Motors California Proving Ground, the MOTOR TREND judges found, “the most impressive thing about the Bolt EV is that there are no caveats and no ‘for an electric car’ qualifiers needed in any discussion. It is, simply, a world-class small car, and that’s before you factor in the benefits inherent in the smoothness, silence, and instant-on torque provided by the electric motor.”

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Phillips 66(PSX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sarfaraz Khan]

    Also note that Berkshire Hathaway has direct exposure to the US energy sector through its subsidiary Berkshire Hathaway Energy, which is a power company that also owns two interstate natural gas pipelines. Besides, Berkshire Hathaways stock portfolio also has some exposure to the energy sector. The company owns 80.7 million shares of Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX), a major US-based refiner that is also expanding in the midstream space, valued at almost $7 billion. Phillips 66 represents more than 5% of Berkshire Hathaways stock portfolio. The conglomerate also owns 20 million shares of the pipeline giant Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), valued at $414.2 million. These energy companies are positioned to benefit from Donald Trumps pro-energy policies and de-regulation.

    Refiners and downstream energy stocks have really gone to town as oil prices have listed lower in a relatively tight range. Phillips 66 (PSX) is among those winners.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo, Tyler Crowe, and Jason Hall]

    Oil prices haven’t gotten off to the fast start many expected, falling around 6% on average during the first quarter of the year. That slump came despite OPEC’s best efforts since producing nations have achieved fairly good compliance on their planned output cuts. That said, despite the lackluster oil market, we still see some interestingopportunities in the oil market. Three stocks we really like right now are DistributionNOW(NYSE:DNOW),Phillips 66(NYSE:PSX), andConocoPhillips(NYSE:COP), which all should do well in the current oil market.

  • [By Virendra Singh Chauhan]

    Another piece of the Berkshire puzzle which could ride a tailwind is the investment in oil major Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). With OPEC recently making a move to support oil prices with supply cuts, a rising oil price will benefit the oil major which made up just over 5% of Berkshire’s stock holdings at the end of the September quarter. PSX stock price is up 11% over the last one month and could be headed further higher if the demand/supplydynamics of the oil market are brought under control.

    In today’s segment, Joel South talks about an intriguing development from EQT Corp. (NYSE: EQT  ) and Green Field Services, where the companies drilled a multistage fracked natural gas well in the Marcellus shale using 100% field natural gas. Using natural gas from close wells instead ofdieselto power rigs could be another game changer as oil and gas companies continue to increase drilling efficiencies and thereby significantly lower costs.

  • [By Gary Jakacky]

    On the other hand, our economy shows more strength by the day. Oil prices remain stuck in a five year range. Natural gas prices are testing new lows: successful fracking techniques recently announced by EQT Corporation (EQT) in Seeking Alpha (10/17/2013 @ 2:29 PM on Market Currents) could cut over $1.5 billion from the costs of drilling for gas, as well as assuage "environmentalist" concerns about fracking. Fuel is a major cost for transportation companies. So maybe IYT can catch a third breath?
