The best-performing energy commodity over the past year is not oil or gas &a;ndash; it is carbon allowances from the European Union&a;rsquo;s carbon market, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS).

The price of a tonne of carbon emitted under the ETS is now nudging &a;euro;15 (it was &a;euro;14.35 at the time of writing) a level it has not seen for seven years &a;ndash; and it is predicted to rise even higher in years to come.

Financial think tank Carbon Tracker says that the allowances will double in price by 2021 and could reach &a;euro;55 a tonne by 2030 if the European Commission introduces rules that align EU emissions targets with the requirements of the Paris climate agreement. This would have a radical effect on Europe&a;rsquo;s energy markets, spelling the end for coal-fired power and leading to a surge in renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, smart grids and demand-side response. It also highlights how other economies around the world could be affected by their own carbon markets.

If there is such a thing as an investing rut, I often worry that I’m in one. As a relatively new investor, I max out my IRA every year, but that’s about all I do. There is no second tier to my investing process, so I have been trying to learn more about other means of investing in hopes that I will invest more, or at least strengthen my current investments in the new year.

I think a lot of young professionals are unsure of where to put their money beyond the 401(k). If you’re someone who has resolved to become a better investor in 2017, here are some starter tips. To help guide these tips, I spoke with investment expert Hans Scheil, who is the president of North Carolina-based Cardinal Retirement Planning, Inc., and the author of The Complete Cardinal Guide to Planning for and Living in Retirement. A 40-year veteran in the financial services industry, he works to help investors create a diverse and stable investment portfolio.

1. You should only invest beyond your 401(k) and IRA if you are already contributing as much as you are allowed to.

“Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil” – J. Paul Getty

I must confess to feeling kind of lonely at times this year being one of a handful of observers of the casino space, (and at times, the only one,) standing firm on my undiminished faith that Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) valuations were dead wrong. Now, after the Macau Parisian has opened and LVS Q3 results knocked it out of the park I suddenly have lots of company. I’m bemused to see the bandwagon suddenly getting rather crowded.

There’s no room for gloat or vapid vainglory in my gene pool. I’ve had my share of missed calls – but the casino space is my home stamping grounds. But it is fair to point out that many prophets of doom since the 2015 junket crackdown ran for the exits or pooh-poohed my consistent call on SA that LVS was still worth $70 in my view. Others agreed with me but were less bullish on price. We’re not there yet to be certain. But as I have written before, if the trade holds steady at $60 or above, I feel the ramp-up to $70 or possibly higher by Q2 2017 will move into the speed lane.

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Early on Monday, analysts at Deutsche Bank lowered their price target on Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) to reflect a lower-than-expected valuation of an asset that the oil and gas exploration company is trying to sell.

    Though the analysts lowered OXY’s price target from $114 to $109, they still maintain a “Buy” rating on the stock. The new price target suggests a 22% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $89.49.

    Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Sankey said, “Bloomberg Finance LP reports that Oxy is seeking sale of 40% of Mideast operations for around $8bn, which would imply $20bn total value for the unit. However reportedly some suitors are valuing the asset at around $15bn. This is a relatively negative valuation against our previous view that Oxy would be seeking $25+bn for its MENA business. We are cutting our price target to $109/share to reflect this lower implied valuation.”

    Occidental Petroleum shares were up 96 cents, or 1.07%, during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 16.81% year-to-date.
