    Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, NFLX, AAPL, GM
    Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) is back under pressure after the latest charges by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against CEO Elon Musk. According to an SEC debate, Musk violated a gag order by failing to seek approval for his tweet on expected production targets for the firm’s electric vehicles. The SEC says Musk’s tweet was a “blatant” violation of an existing settlement agreement. Musk had previously paid a hefty sum and relinquished his role as chair after tweeting he was thinking of taking the company private without filing such plans with the agency. TSLA stocks are off 0.6% on news that the SEC is reportedly seeking contempt of court charges against Musk. The streaming battle between Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is heating up. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings announced that his company would not provide its original films and TV shows on Apple’s newest video service. Apple is expected to unveil its own streaming service to its subscriber base next week. As the streaming wars continue to heat up and the competition grows more intense, some analysts are worried about the long-term viability of Netflix’s platform. Shares of General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) are in focus as ride-sharing giant Lyft prepares to launch its IPO. General Motors owns a significant stake in Lyft, prompting some investors to demand that GM sell its private shares and return what could be worth up to $1.27 billion to GM investors. However, some investors would prefer that GM hold onto its stake ahead of the Lyft IPO for strategic purposes. Look for earnings reports from China Telecom Corp. Ltd.(NYSE: CHA), DSW Inc. (NYSE: DSW), FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), Franco Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV), and Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS).

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

November has been a bad month for Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE). The natural gas refueling company has lost around 10% of its value this month, with most of the decline coming after the company released mixed third-quarter results. I am saying mixed because Clean Energy had missed the top line estimate by around 6.5%, even though it trumped the earnings estimate by $0.02 per share.

What gives?

It looks like investors were disappointed by the fact that Clean Energy reported just 5% increase in revenue from the year-ago period, which was identical to the growth in its volumes. Thus, it is evident that Clean Energy Fuels was unable to take advantage of an improvement in natural gas prices last quarter.

In fact, in the third quarter of 2016, the average Henry Hub Natural Gas spot price was 11% higher as compared to the year-ago period. But, whatever growth that Clean Energy delivered on the top line was volume driven. This can be attributed to the fact that Clean Energy Fuels enters into agreements with its clients to sell gas at fixed price contracts that are subject to a price cap. As such, the company was unable to take advantage of the increase in spot prices.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Equity Commonwealth(EQC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Equity Commonwealth (NYSE:EQC) continued the steady pare-down of its property portfolio during the fourth quarter, ending the year with only 10 remaining real estate assets. However, for the first time in years, the company’s funds from operations increased as it was able to more than offset the lost income with gains elsewhere. But it’s not yet clear whether the company’s earnings growth will continue, since it has several more property sales in the works, which could weigh on its results until it starts making acquisitions.

Even regional department store chain Dillard’s (NYSE:DDS) — which, like Macy’s, posted better-than-expected Q2 results — has experienced a steep sell-off in the past few days.

The SEC is investigating GE’s accounting tactics and its massive insurance losses. The Justice Department is probing GE’s (GE) pre-crisis sale of subprime mortgage. Furious shareholders are suing GE and former top executives over allegedly misleading statements.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019: Zynga Inc.(ZNGA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Gaming publishers are always looking for the next big thing. The odds of scoring a huge hit are vanishingly small, even for a short-term victory. Consider the case of Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), the social gaming veteran that struck gold with FarmVille and Words With Friends once upon a time. The company went public at the very height of that adrenaline rush. If you bought in at Zynga’s peak share prices in the spring of 2012, you’ve weathered a 70% cut to your investment’s value so far. Like I said, it’s a long way down from the top.

Best Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.
