Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Freshman Congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and veteran lawmaker Sen. Edward Markey are introducing a resolution spelling out congressional support for a Green New Deal — an ambitious plan to remake the U.S. economy and drastically reduce the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The resolution largely sticks to a blueprint Ocasio-Cortez laid out when she proposed creating a House select committee to establish a Green New Deal. That framework called for generating 100 percent of the nation’s power from renewable sources, making all buildings energy efficient and eliminating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector and industry — all within about 10 years.

The plan also proposes massive investments in research and development to make the U.S. a leader in clean energy technology. In addition, the Green New Deal envisioned by Ocasio-Cortez aims to implement progressive policies such as a federal jobs guarantee, basic income and universal health care.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    For example, relatively small peer Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE:CEQP) ended the month up 13%. ONEOK (NYSE:OKE), which is structured as a regular corporation and not a limited partnership, rose an impressive 19%. And Canadian midstream owner Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) jumped 20% (like ONEOK, Pembina is not structured as a limited partnership). The midstream sector across the board had a pretty decent month.

Luzich Partners LLC’s holdings in Crestwood Equity Partners were worth $14,889,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), Oasis Midstream Partners (NYSE:OMP), and Hess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM) are far from household names. Because of that, most investors probably missed the fact that these high-yielding master limited partnerships (MLPs) have been red-hot this year. However, while all have delivered strong returns in 2018, each one still has plenty of fuel left in the tank to continue providing outsized gains in the coming years, which is why investors won’t want to keep overlooking the potential of these pipeline companies.

    Friday was a poor day on Wall Street, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell 200 points and other major benchmarks lost about 1%. Rising bond yields were a major source of consternation among those following the financial markets, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 2.95% and helping to send mortgage rates sharply higher. Even though earnings season has gone fairly well for many companies, some investors are also starting to realize that political issues are likely to cloud the outlook for the U.S. economy in the coming months, creating more uncertainty that could stymie further market gains. Some bad news affecting individual companies also added to the negative mood. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE:SWK), ManpowerGroup (NYSE:MAN), and Sage Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SAGE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

A quick note: With the 280+ comments I received on my piece published over the weekend about selling a portion of your Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock, I wanted to further clarify my position as the context is important in reading this piece. Unfortunately, many I fear read the title and glossed over the article before commenting, albeit insightful and informative commentary.

My main thesis was: generate a handsome profit by selling a portion (1% up to whatever you are comfortable with) of your current Apple position, because with the current Q1 numbers and future uncertainty in the hardware world, there are more undervalued stocks out there to “seek alpha.”

Unfortunately the title, “Consider Selling a Portion of Your Apple Stock to Capture Gains and Reinvest in Undervalued Sectors for Higher Probability of Alpha” – was not fit to print. And because I’m all about equal opportunity, I’ve written a strategy to make money off naysayers like me! Now onto your regularly scheduled programming

    NEW YORK — Walgreen is moving 120,000 employees to a private health insurance exchange from coverage provided directly from carriers, the company will announce Wednesday.
    The pharmacy chain will join 17 other large employers on the Aon Hewitt Corporate Health Exchange as part of a growing movement to offer employees fixed dollar amounts to purchase their own plans on such exchanges.
    The end-cost to employees depends on the plan chosen, but they typically get more options than under traditional arrangements. Private exchanges mimic the coverage mandated as part of the Affordable Care Act. Enrollment in the public exchanges starts Oct. 1.
    “What happens to employer contributions over time? Will they put in as much as they put in the past? These are unanswered questions but potential negatives,” says Paul Fronstin, a senior research associate with the Employee Benefit Research Institute. The benefit to Walgreen and other employers is unknown at this point, as their cost-savings aren’t clear.
    Of the 180,000 Walgreen (WAG) employees eligible for health care insurance, 120,000 opted for coverage for themselves and 40,000 family members. Another 60,000 employees, many of them working part-time, weren’t eligible for health insurance.
    Aon Hewitt (AON) says other participants in its program include retailer Sears Holding (SHLD) and Darden Restaurants (DRI). These new additions raise enrollment to 330,000 from 100,000 last year, and Aon Hewitt estimates enrollment will jump to 600,000 next year, a fivefold increase from 2012.
    By 2017, nearly 20 percent of employees nationwide could get their health insurance through a private exchange, according to Accenture Research (ACN). A recent report by the National Business Group on Health said that 30 percent of large employers are considering moving active employees to exchanges by 2015.

    Other major providers of private exchanges include Mercer, a division of Marsh & Mc
