Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

Things are moving fast in renewable energy. Really fast. Consider that in 2008 wind farms supplied just 1.5% of all electricity in the United States. But by 2019 wind power is expected to contribute 6.9% of American electricity and overtake hydropower as the top renewable energy source.

The rise of wind power wouldn’t have been possible without two companies in particular, which combine to own 20.7 gigawatts of wind capacity, or about 24% of the country’s total. Investors wouldn’t be surprised to learn that clean energy provider NextEra Energy is one of the renewable energy stocks most important to American wind power. However, the relatively unheard of natural gas and electric utility Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) doesn’t seem to garner nearly the same level of attention. Overlooking it could be a mistake.

With 10-year total returns of 226% and plans to grow its dividend and EPS at annual clips of 5% to 7% — all while investing billions in new wind and solar capacity — it could be the best renewable energy stock you’ve never heard of.

    Three Stocks to Watch Today: LC, GE, GS
    General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) has ousted its CEO John Flannery. Shares are up more than 10% as investors celebrated the news. GE has been mired in a slump, particularly its turbine business. The firm’s new CEO is H. Lawrence Culp, Jr., the former CEO of the industrial firm Danaher. Shares of LendingClub Corp. (NYSE: LC) are under pressure after the SEC charged one of the firm’s divisions with mishandling client money. This weekend, the firm reached a settlement with regulators on charges that the firm inflated its revenue and made changes to products to make the firm look healthier than it is. As a result, the firm’s board of directors forced CEO Renaud Laplanche to resign. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) has replaced CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who has stepped down after more than a decade at the helm at one of Wall Street’s most iconic banks. David Solomon – who has previously served as the firm’s president and COO – will now bet the new CEO. His tenure begins at a tough time for Goldman as the bank struggles with lower trading desk revenues. Look for earnings reports today from Cal-Maine Foods Inc. (NASDAQ: CALM) and Xcerra Corp. (NASDAQ: XCRA).

    1. Equity Commonwealth (NYSE: EQC)
    It may be surprising to find a real estate investment trust (REIT) on this list, but Sam Zell’s investment vehicle is preparing itself for a possible debt bomb. Zell’s ability to foresee economic trends has built him great wealth. Now, he is selling EQC’s holdings to create a cash hoard ready to deploy when debt causes real estate prices to plunge again.  

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Equity Commonwealth (NYSE:EQC) continued to steadily sell off its portfolio of real estate holdings, closing three more sales during the quarter, bringing its property count down to 13. As a result, cash flow kept declining. That trend doesn’t show any signs of ending given that the company has more properties on the market and doesn’t yet see a good opportunity to make acquisitions.

    HRPT Properties Trust (NYSE:EQC) had its price target boosted by investment analysts at JMP Securities to $33.00 in a report issued on Tuesday. The brokerage currently has a “market outperform” rating on the real estate investment trust’s stock.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market had a tumultuous session on Wednesday, as major benchmarks started the day weak but bounced back in the afternoon. Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

What happened

Shares of natural-gas-for-transportation supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE) are up 10.2% at 2:47 p.m. EDT on August 9. Today’s surge follows a bad day on August 8, when shares finished down 11% following the release of the company’s second-quarter financial results after market close. 

So what

Today’s big jump is interesting, considering that there really isn’t any corresponding news that could be the catalyst. The company didn’t make any announcement, there are no published Wall Street analyst upgrades of the stock, and there aren’t any of the other usual suspects, such as rising oil prices. 

If there’s a “best guess” reason why shares are moving up today, it’s that some investors are seeing the positives that really outweighed any negatives from the company’s second-quarter earnings report. Clean Energy ended the quarter with more cash than debt, more improvement in lowered expenses, improved gross margins, and a clear path toward growth, with multiple catalysts set to drive adoption of natural gas in the heavy-trucking industry.

We see the biggest impact for Celgenes lenalidomide (Revlimid) in multiple myeloma (MM) following data from the Phase 3 CASTOR and a meta-analysis of lenalidomide maintenance following ASCT in newly diagnosed MM. Other notable data disclosures came from Regeneron and its anti-PD-1 antibody, REGN2810, Gileads MMP9 inhibitor GS-5745in gastric cancer, and Amgens oncolytic virus, T-Vec in combination with pembrolizumab in unresectable melanoma.

Celgene (MP) Revlimid Reinforces Core Position in Myeloma. Two abstracts presented at ASCO reinforce lenalidomides positioning in two different multiple myeloma settings. The first was a meta-analysis of lenalidomide maintenance therapy following autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) patients.

    That helps to explain why shares of Seaspan Corporation (NYSE:SSW) and Diana Shipping (NYSE:DSX) are up 36% and 28%, respectively, since the beginning of April. Both performances easily beat the 5% return of the S&P 500 in that span. However, even the healthy gains made recently don’t come close to erasing the losses accumulated in recent years, as both shipping leaders are down over 34% in the last three-year period.

    Rental rates aren’t the only thing gaining momentum. Several companies are demonstrably stronger today, including containership leader Seaspan (NYSE:SSW). The investor favorite has made moves to strengthen its long-term prospects just in time to capitalize on rebounding global demand for shipping vessels of nearly every size. Throw in the purchase of a Chinese joint venture, which injected youthful vessels and new contracts into the business, and a $500 million investment from a major shareholder, and it’s easy to see why shares are up 80% in the last year alone.

    Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ralph Lauren outperformed the industry in the past six months backed by robust bottom-line performance in recent quarters. Notably, third-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the company’s 12th consecutive earnings beat while sales lagged estimates after a beat in the previous quarter. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Also, the company has been gaining from favorable geographic and channel mix shifts along with lower promotions and reduced product costs. Further, management adjusted fiscal 2018 outlook to account for the positive currency rates, which are likely to aid revenues and operating margins. However, its North America business continues to suffer due to distribution and brand exits, planned reduction in shipments and promotions to enhance the quality of sales, and lower customer demand.”

President Donald Trump may have stirred up a hornet's nest with his belligerent stance on trade with China. For starters, Trump imposed a series of tariffs on Chinese imports that include solar panels, washing machines, steel and aluminium.

More recently, the Commerce Department clamped down on Chinese handset makers Huawei and ZTE by imposing a ban on component imports from the U.S. In return, China threatened the imposition of 25-percent tariffs on shipments from the U.S.
