Top 5 Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

In the quest to track down every oil giant and investor that attended a recent climate change meeting with Pope Francis, two completely non-oil-related attendees appear to have been overlooked: a couple of renewable energy companies.

Michael Garland, the chief executive officer of U.S. wind and solar power company Pattern Energy Group Inc., said he and another renewable energy executive were invited to join the conversation last week to represent their industry. “We were outnumbered, but that’s OK,” he said in an interview in San Francisco Wednesday. “We felt honored to be there. We added just enough flavor on the renewable side to make it interesting.”

Garland echoed a lot of what’s already been reported out of the meeting. He said everybody agreed that there needed to be something done about climate change, that there needs to be a price on carbon — perhaps in the form of a tax on emissions — and that oil and gas companies need a way of disclosing their efforts to combat global warming without exposing themselves to lawsuits if they can’t deliver on every part of their plans.

Market participants seemed largely content to see how things played out on the geopolitical front between the U.S. and North Korea, and key reversals in other financial markets helped send 10-year Treasury rates back below 3% and also resulted in a substantial drop in crude oil prices. Despite generally quiet conditions, bad news sent shares of certain companies lower.

Top Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Phillips 66 Partners LP(PSXP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While those customer commitments were hard to come by over the past few years due to the turbulence in the oil market, energy companies are beginning to grow more optimistic about the future. Because of that, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) and several other partners were able to secure the necessary commitments to move forward with the Gray Oak Pipeline, which will transport oil out of the fast-growing Permian Basin. That project will enable these companies to generate more income, likely allowing them to boost their already above-average payouts.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

On Tuesday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap energy storage and power delivery stock Maxwell Technologies (NASDAQ: MXWL):

We had to zoom in pretty tight on the chart of MXWL to show you some of the most relevant details. But, know that in so doing we lost some perspective on another key bullish clue. That is, the converging wedge pattern (red lines) extends back several months, so this recent pop above the upper boundary of the pattern is a big deal.

What’s so compelling about the detailed view of the new bullish effort, however, is the fact that as of today the 20-day moving average line is above the 200-day line, and the recent breakout thrust has unfurled on lots of volume.

Also what you can’t see on our chart is just how much room there is for Maxwell Technologies to recover. MXWL was trading in the teens just a couple years ago.
