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.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Buy Right Now

The clouds of doubt hanging over Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) regarding allegations of sexual misconduct against the casino operator’s founder and former chairman Steve Wynn may soon be breaking, and none to soon.

Wynn Resorts reached a settlement with Nevada gaming regulators that has it admitting guilt for failing to act on the allegations even though executives and the board were aware of the misconduct.

While a serious admission, Wynn will not need to make more changes than it already has, and its gaming license in the state will no longer be in jeopardy. It still must pay an undetermined fine, but the resort will be able to move forward.

The risk is less, but not gone

Because a similar threat remains in Massachusetts, where Wynn seeks to open the Encore Boston Harbor resort, the clouds have not fully cleared. But Massachusetts regulators seem highly likely to follow the lead of Nevada.

Hot Stocks For 2019

The Trump administration plans to spend 90% less on advertising to get people to sign up for Obamacare than former President Obama did last year.

The administration will spend $10 million on promotions during open enrollment season this fall, compared to $100 million a year ago, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which administers Obamacare, said Thursday. It will focus on radio and digital ads, as well as email to existing enrollees.

At the same time, it is cutting funding for so-called navigators — who help people sign up for coverage — by 41%. The 98 navigator groups will receive a total of $37 million for the coming enrollment season.

With Congress’ effort to repeal and replace Obamacare on hold, all eyes are on whether the Trump administration will work to stabilize or undermine the health reform law. President Trump has repeatedly said Obamacare is dead. He has raised questions about whether he will try to dismantle the law by discontinuing funding for a key set of subsidies or weakening enforcement of the individual mandate.
