Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

Originally, when the novel coronavirus first became a thing, Novavax (NASDAQ:NVAX) showed great promise. While other vaccine developers were experimenting with pioneering nucleic-acid-based technologies, Novavax went with a subunit mechanism, a proven approach used in the hepatitis B vaccine. Theoretically, that should have been great news for NVAX stock and it was, at least for a while.

No matter how you look at it, Novavax is a Covid-19 winner. Prior to the pandemic, the company was staring at a complete implosion, having failed to deliver much of substance to stakeholders.

Throughout most of 2019 and going into the early months of 2020, NVAX stock traded in single-digit territory. Historically, shares have seen dramatic surges to triple digits.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

What happened 

Shares of natural gas fuel supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) jumped as much as 12% in trading Tuesday as oil prices continued to help push the stock higher. At 3:30 p.m. EDT shares were near their high for the day, trading 11.6% higher. 

So what

The ups and downs of crude oil trading can often drive Clean Energy Fuels’ stock and that appears to be what’s happening today. Midday, oil prices spiked on news that the Trump Administration would ban all oil imports from Iran by Nov. 4, 2018. WTI Crude Oil is trading 3.5% higher at $70.45 per barrel and Brent Crude is currently up 2.2% to $76.34 per barrel.

Since Clean Energy Fuels’ natural gas products are a direct competitor to diesel, which comes from crude oil, when oil prices rise it makes natural gas more competitive. For today, investors are speculating that rising oil prices will eventually help the company’s financials.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners(NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics(NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

The pullback was not as bad as maybe would be expected considering the volatility. Facebooks CEO Mark Zuckerberg continued his testimony on Capitol Hill, but tech stocks were less enthusiastic in Wednesdays session. Crude oil made another solid day of gains. The S&P 500 sectors were mostly negative. The most positive sectors were industrials and technology up 0.3% and 0.1%, respectively. The worst performing sectors were materials and consumer staples down 1.3% and 0.8%, respectively.

    Three Motley Fool energy experts have already put in the work to help you get started, having identified integrated oil and gas super-major Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR)(NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B), surprisingly diverse sand supplierU.S. Silica Holdings Inc(NYSE:SLCA), and still-cheap, still-strong wind turbine leaderVestas Wind Systems(NASDAQOTH:VWDRY).Keep reading for unique, real-investor insight on what makes these three energy stocks worth buying this month.

    U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) had its price objective trimmed by Morgan Stanley from $47.00 to $43.00 in a report issued on Wednesday. The firm currently has a buy rating on the mining company’s stock.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Despite posting a sharp recovery in operations in 2017 compared to 2016, frack sand supplier U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) just can’t seem to earn the respect of Wall Street analysts. Shares have fallen 22% in the last year. Some of that is easy to understand considering how badly the company (and the industry as a whole) overshot market demand in the past, which crashed sand prices and wiped out profitability. But I think there’s enough evidence that management has learned valuable lessons and put them into practice this time around.
