That means expect the unexpected, and prepare for a volatility spike in key healthcare names such as Express Scripts (ESRX) , CVS Health (CVS) , Endo International (ENDP) , Mallinckrodt (MNK) , McKesson (MCK) and Cardinal Health (CAH) .

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

As we mentioned before, Genfit (OTCPK:GNFTF) and Intercept (ICPT) are targeting what can be termed as the sweet spot of the NASH spectrum. Galecctin is one of the few companies targeting advanced stage of the disease. This makes it both an interesting and at the same time risky bet in the NASH space.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Thursday continued the stock market’s recent rally, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average enjoying another triple-digit gain and certain other major benchmarks starting to approach record levels. Benign news on the macroeconomic front was the latest cause for optimism among market participants, as the latest reading on inflation showed a just-right price increase that suggested a healthy economy without putting pressure on the Federal Reserve to boost interest rates too quickly. Some individual companies’ stocks saw outsize gains. Spotify Technology (NYSE:SPOT), CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), and ARMO BioSciences (NASDAQ:ARMO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Likewise, the massive sums that cloud giants are spending on both AI hardware and talent, together with the huge quantities of user data they have for feeding their training systems, make it tough for smaller rivals to launch competing services. And the giant data center build-outs being carried out by public cloud service giants Amazon, Microsoft and Google make it tough for smaller rivals such as Oracle (ORCL) and CenturyLink (CTL)  — rivals that are also generally at a disadvantage in terms of the number of features they provide — to keep pace.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Shipbuilding and services specialistHuntington Ingalls (NYSE:HII) was spun off from Northup Grumman in early 2011. General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) is roughly six times larger and offers a far more diversified list of products and services that includes submarines, aircraft, and armored vehicles, among other things. Both, however, provide key products and services to the U.S. military. That’s normally a fairly consistent business driven by large and often very long contracts. With a supportive administration in the White House, it would seem like now is a good time to take a look at this pair of stocks. But which of these two military-industrial companies is a better buy? Using a Benjamin Grahamlens, the answer may not be what you want to hear.

jim cramer stock picks

The financials have been playing the part of the potential silent killer to the monster rally that started almost a year ago to the week. Over the last two weeks, the large cap financials have tumbled, which is starting to cause weakness for the market. The reason behind the draw lower is another migration to technology stocks, but there’s more.

The continued uncertainty around the players at the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) as well as what action will be taken on interest rates in 2018 is playing a heavy hand in keeping interest rates in-check. This, along with the tug-of-war around any potential tax overhaul has investors looking at the financials with a higher risk assumption.

Today’s three big stock charts looks at Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC), Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) as three of the stock charts that are currently pulling the financials into a potential short-term bearish outlook.

    Non-bank ATM operator Cardtronics (NASDAQ:CATM) slumped on Friday despite reporting fourth-quarter results that beat analyst estimates on all fronts.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    One such outfit is Kelly Services (KELYA). The Troy, Mich., company places temporary employees in a variety of fields, such as law, health care, computing and finance. Although recent job reports have been strong, S&P Capital IQ analyst Michael Jaffe sees employers remaining cautious in their hiring practices and using the kind of temporary workers Kelly specializes in. Jaffe says Kelly is his top pick in the staffing sector, and he rates the stock a strong buy.

Top Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now: Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc.(RARE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Johanna Bennett]

    Nothing guts a drug stock like bad clinical trial data. Shares of Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical (RARE) fell as much as 10% after a seizure medication failed in a phase II study.

    Trading at a recent $72.22, the shares were down 7.7% after earlier falling as much as 10% to $70.51

    The seizure drug UX007 was tested as a treatment for glucose transporter type-1 deficiency syndromeor Glut1 DSamong a small group of patients. Data released Wednesday showed that it only cut the rate of seizures in the drug arm by 13.4% compared to the placebo arm, falling short of statistical significance.

    Investigators, though, teased out a clinically — though not statistically — significant benefit for patients experiencing what are called absence seizures. Ultragenyx now intends to focus on that in a Phase III pivotal trial.

    Leerik analyst Joseph Schwartz called the selloff a buying opportunity.

    We had been cautious on this asset (and its two programs – G1DS and long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorder/LC-FAOD; LINK) – but believe the selling pressure after mkt. presents a buying opportunity ahead of a more de-risked X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) Ph.3 data in 1H17.

    Cowen analyst Eric Schmidt remained convinced of RAREs long-term prospects thanks to a diversified orphan disease pipeline. And analysts at Credit Suisse see more catalysts ahead in 2017.

    We are buyers on a pullback and we like RAREs setup for the remainder of 2017…Remaining 2017 catalysts keep us buyers on a pullback: We see Q2:17 KRN23 ph3 adult XLH data, H1:17 rhGUS FDA/EMA submission, potential KRN23 CHMP decision in mid-17 (based on late-2016 EMA submission/validation), H2:17 Ace-ER ph3 GNEM data, and potential KRN23 FDA submission in late-17/early-18 as upcoming catalysts worth owning for.

Top Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now: Nuveen Municipal Value Fund Inc.(NUV)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Donald van Deventer]

    The latest implied forward rate forecast from Kamakura Corporation shows projected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields differing -0.07% to 0.03% from last week while fixed rate mortgage yields varied by -0.01% to 0.08%. Mortgage yields, determined by the Monday through Wednesday weekly survey of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, lag Treasury movements simply because of the 3-day yield calculation used in the Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is projected to rise from 2.92% at Thursday’s close (down 0.06% from last week) to 3.374% (down 0.06% from last week) in one year. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield in ten years is forecast to reach 4.639%, 1 basis point lower than last week. The 15-year fixed rate mortgage rate is forecast to rise from the effective yield of 3.69% on Thursday (down 0.001% from last week) to 4.222% (down 0.006% from last week) in one year and 6.29% in 10 years, up 0.038% from last week. We explain the background for these calculations in the rest of this note, along with some mortgage servicing rights metrics. The forecast allows investors in exchange traded U.S. Treasury funds (TLT) (TBT), total return bond funds (BOND), municipal bonds (NUV) and exchange traded mortgage funds (REM) to assess likely total returns over the next 120 months. Treasury-related exchange traded funds affected by the forward rates include:

Top Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now: TransUnion(TRU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Ready To Shop? A highlight this coming week is Black Friday, and recent data hint that shoppers might be ready. A record 195.9 million consumers now have access to revolving credit such as bank-issued and private label credit cards, TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) said in a recent press release. This is the highest level of revolving credit access since TRU began measuring the variable and is greater than the 192.6 million consumers who had access to such credit products in Q3 2016. “The third quarter of 2017 exhibited a lending market that continued to operate in a stable manner, with consumers continuing to gain access to credit and take advantage of that access,” said Ezra Becker, senior vice president and head of research and consulting for TransUnion, in the press release. “However, we are beginning to see a slowdown in originations, which may be a signal of saturation in the lower-risk credit tiers and some pull-back in lender risk appetite in the higher-risk tiers.” Still, Becker predicted a “robust holiday shopping season.”
