Top 10 Oil Stocks To Watch Right Now

The short interest in social media company Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) rose 16 million shares, or 17%, to 109 million shares for the period that ended May 15. It is the 11th most shorted stock traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Worse, the position is 25% of the float, a sign of how big the bet really is.

After a brief rally earlier in the year, Snap shares are back near their 52-week low of $10.50, against a high for the period of $21.75. Among the reasons are poor earnings and savage competition from much larger Facebook. In the midst of all this, Snap thinks among the most important thing it can say is that it released its own eyeglasses, dubbed “Spectacles.” On a more important note, Snap redesigned the Snapchat interface and the reception was horrible.

Although Snap’s revenue rose in the most recent quarter, that was the only good news for the period. Revenue was $149 million in the period a year ago and rose to $231 million. But Snap lost $385 million.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) based its 2019 plans on oil averaging $50 a barrel. At that price point, the company can fund its $2.6 billion capital spending plan — enough money to grow its U.S. oil production by 12% this year — and its dividend with plenty of room to spare. Marathon has so much breathing room that it can fund its 2019 budget as well as its dividend at $45 oil, which means it’s on track to produce a gusher of free cash now that oil is in the mid-$50s. Marathon currently expects to return the bulk of that money to shareholders through additional share repurchases, which sets up investors to potentially earn some high-octane total returns this year if oil keeps going higher.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) delivered exceptional operational and financial results in 2018. Not only did its U.S. oil production outperformthe midpoint of its initial guidance range by 22.5%, but it also generated a boatload of free cash flow. That strong performance is one of many reasons Marathon CEO Lee Tillman believes his company checks all the boxes for investors. He laid out the case for the company on itsfourth-quarter conference call, detailing four reasons Marathon is an ideal oil stock. Here’s what he said.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Jason Hall, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Matt DiLallo(Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Overall, earnings at both Williams and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were down slightly versus the year-ago period due to asset sales, while cash flow modestly increased thanks to lower interest expenses.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Simpler organizational structures could yield significant benefits for individual investors. In addition to being easier to follow and understand, it will make it easier than ever to own some of the most important pieces of energy infrastructure in the United States. The proposed merger between Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and Williams Partners LP (NYSE:WPZ) is a great example, as it owns some of the best natural gas infrastructure in the United States. Here’s why investors should be bullish on the multi-billion dollar merger.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Natural gas pipeline giant Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) reported mixed second-quarter results after the close Wednesday. Earnings declined fractionally due to asset sales and some higher costs. Cash flow, on the other hand, moved slightly higher thanks in part to lower interest expenses as a result of debt reduction. However, while both numbers underwhelmed in Q2, they should head much higher in the coming year because Williams has several expansion projects under way that should boost its bottom line.

    It starts in 2007 when the Oracle of Omaha began purchasing shares of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP). By the end of 2007, Buffett had spent just over $1 billion.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.

    “Robust industry trends” in the semiconductor industry, argues Davidson, give this “leading provider of semiconductor test handlers and … emerging player in the associated contactor and vision inspection markets” an “ample runway for growth.” Cohu’s also in the process of acquiring one of its top competitors, Xcerra Corporation (NASDAQ:XCRA), in a deal slated to close next quarter, which will add scale to Cohu’s business even as it removes a source of price competition.

    Darden Restaurants Inc.(NYSE: DRI) leads a fairly busy day of earnings reports. The restaurant management giant easily topped Wall Street profit numbers by reporting earnings per share of $1.34. The average Wall Street estimate was $1.23. The firm also easily topped revenue expectations. DRI shares were up 4.5% this morning. The problems continue to mount for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). This morning, JPMorgan Securities slashed its price target for the U.S. conglomerate from $11 to $10 per share. The investment firm cited ongoing challenges to the company’s turbine business. General Electric has been under pressure since the financial crisis, and it was the worst performing stock on the Dow in 2017 before it was ultimately replaced on the index. Shares of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) added 3.4% this morning, but the driver wasn’t necessarily positive for the global apparel giant. According to reports, the Baltimore-based sports apparel giant is cutting 3% of its international workforce. That equates to roughly 400 jobs. The company did raise its fiscal 2018 earnings forecast, and issued a revised update of severance costs. Look for earnings reports from Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU), Thor Industries Inc.(NYSE: THO), United Natural Foods Inc.(NASDAQ: UNFI), Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS), Scholastic Corp.(NASDAQ: SCHL), and Xcerra Corp.(NASDAQ: XCRA).

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: TRACON Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(TCON)

TRACON Pharmaceuticals, Inc., incorporated on October 28, 2004, is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. The Company is focused on the development and commercialization of therapeutics for cancer, wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and fibrotic diseases. The Company’s research focuses on antibodies that bind to the endoglin receptor, which is essential to angiogenesis (the process of new blood vessel formation) and a contributor to fibrosis (tissue scarring). The Company’s lead product candidate, TRC105, is an endoglin antibody that is being developed for the treatment of multiple solid tumor types in combination with inhibitors of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) pathway. TRC205 is being developed for the treatment of fibrotic disease. The Company is also developing TRC102, a small molecule that is in clinical development for the treatment of lung cancer and glioblastoma.

TRC105

The Company is developing TRC105 for use in combination with agents that inhibit angiogenesis by targeting the VEGF pathway. VEGF is required for angiogenesis. TRC105 binds to the endoglin receptor at a precise location to inhibit endothelial cell activation and angiogenesis. TRC105 has been studied in over six completed Phase II clinical trials and approximately three completed Phase I clinical trials, and is being dosed in over five Phase II clinical trials. TRC105 is focused on approximately two orphan indications, gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) and angiosarcoma. The next tier of development includes ongoing Phase II trials in renal cell carcinoma, glioblastoma and hepatocellular carcinoma. The Company has produced formulations of TRC105 for development in ophthalmology, which are developed for the treatment of wet AMD, the cause of blindness in the Western world.

TRC205

The Company’s TRC205 is a humanized, deimmunized anti-endoglin antibody. TRC205 is being developed for the treatment of fibrotic diseases, including nonalcoholic ! steatohepatitis (NASH) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

TRC102

The Company is developing TRC102 (methoxyamine hydrochloride) to reverse resistance to specific chemotherapeutics by inhibiting base excision repair (BER). TRC102 interrupts BER by binding within apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) sites, converting the AP site to a substrate for the enzyme topoisomerase II, which cleaves TRC102-bound deoxy ribonucleic acid (DNA), resulting in an accumulation of DNA strand breaks that trigger cellular apoptosis or programmed cell death. TRC102 is being developed to reverse resistance to Temodar, an alkylating chemotherapeutic, as well as to Alimta and Fludara, two antimetabolite chemotherapeutics. TRC102 began Phase II development through a Phase II clinical trial that combines TRC102 in patients with mesothelioma, as well as a Phase II clinical trial of TRC102 in patients with glioblastoma.

The Company competes with Pfizer, Inc., Acceleron Pharma Inc., Amgen, Inc., MedImmune LLC, OncoMed Pharmaceuticals Inc., Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Roche AG, Genfit Corp., Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Conatus Pharmaceuticals Inc., Galmed Medical Research Ltd., Gilead Sciences, Inc., Immuron Ltd., Shire plc, Mochida Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., NasVax Ltd., Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp., Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, InterMune, Inc., Boehringer Ingelheim, Biogen Idec., Bristol-Myers Squibb, Celgene Corporation, Fibrogen, Inc., Gilead, Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc., Novartis AG, Sanofi S.A, Tesaro, Inc. and AbbVie Inc.

    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.

The company was formerly known as USX Corporation and changed its name to Marathon Oil Corporation in July 2001. Marathon Oil Corporation was founded in 1887 and is based in Houston, Texas.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) based its 2019 plans on oil averaging $50 a barrel. At that price point, the company can fund its $2.6 billion capital spending plan — enough money to grow its U.S. oil production by 12% this year — and its dividend with plenty of room to spare. Marathon has so much breathing room that it can fund its 2019 budget as well as its dividend at $45 oil, which means it’s on track to produce a gusher of free cash now that oil is in the mid-$50s. Marathon currently expects to return the bulk of that money to shareholders through additional share repurchases, which sets up investors to potentially earn some high-octane total returns this year if oil keeps going higher.

Hot Oil Stocks To Watch For 2019: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) delivered exceptional operational and financial results in 2018. Not only did its U.S. oil production outperform the midpoint of its initial guidance range by 22.5%, but it also generated a boatload of free cash flow. That strong performance is one of many reasons Marathon CEO Lee Tillman believes his company checks all the boxes for investors. He laid out the case for the company on its fourth-quarter conference call, detailing four reasons Marathon is an ideal oil stock. Here’s what he said.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Melrose Industries (LON:MRO) issued its earnings results on Thursday. The company reported GBX 5.80 ($0.07) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the Zacks’ consensus estimate of GBX 4.40 ($0.06) by GBX 1.40 ($0.02), Digital Look Earnings reports. Melrose Industries had a negative return on equity of 4.75% and a negative net margin of 4.58%.

    That ability to organically discover new shale plays has saved it a ton of money. The company was able to quietly gobble up 50,000 acres in Oklahoma over a four-year period for just $750 an acre. Contrast that with rivals Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO). Devon spent $1.9 billion to buy Felix Energy in late 2015 for the company’s 80,000 acres in Oklahoma, paying a whopping $23,750 an acre. Meanwhile, Marathon paid $888 million for PayRock Energy and its 61,000 acres in the state, which amounted to roughly $14,500 an acre. EOG’s deep knowledge of shale helps it know where to look so it can lock up land for next to nothing before rivals even know what’s there.

  • [By Zacks]

    Oil production is surging in Canada but producers are far from happy as their profit margin is sinking and they are striving to stay competitive with their U.S. counterparts. While upstream companies like Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO), Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) and others are enjoying the shale boom and rebound in prices in the United States, their Canadian counterparts like Cenovus Energy Inc. (NYSE: CVE) and others are thinking of reducing production. The primary reason behind this is the shortage of pipelines in the country. In short, pipeline construction in Canada has failed to keep pace with rising domestic oil production – the heavier sour variety churned out of the oil sands –  resulting in infrastructural bottlenecks. This has also forced producers to give away their products at a discounted rate.

    Presto, West Texas Intermediate crude rose 3% to $71.18, the highest since December 2014, boosting shares of oil companies including Occidental (OXY) , which gained 4.8%, Marathon (MRO) , up 3.8%, and Apache (APA) , which gained 2.5%. Spot gasoline also rose 2.7% to $2.17 a gallon, boding ill for the summer driving season in the U.S. and potentially eroding any gains middle-class Americans received from the Trump tax cuts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) based its 2019 plans on oil averaging $50 a barrel. At that price point, the company can fund its $2.6 billion capital spending plan — enough money to grow its U.S. oil production by 12% this year — and its dividend with plenty of room to spare. Marathon has so much breathing room that it can fund its 2019 budget as well as its dividend at $45 oil, which means it’s on track to produce a gusher of free cash now that oil is in the mid-$50s. Marathon currently expects to return the bulk of that money to shareholders through additional share repurchases, which sets up investors to potentially earn some high-octane total returns this year if oil keeps going higher.

Top 10 Oil Stocks To Invest In 2019

Mexico’s credit risk is at the highest level since the days after Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Five-year credit-default swaps that hedge against a drop in the value of Mexico’s sovereign debt have soared as the July 1 presidential election nears. Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador holds a commanding lead in the polls, and traders are concerned his victory could upend the economy just as the country is roiled by increasing trade tensions with the U.S.

Other Mexican assets are also showing signs of stress as the election approaches. The peso’s 2.9 percent drop this month is the second-worst performance among major currencies. Dollar-denominated sovereign bonds, meanwhile, have lost 1.3 percent in June.

    Whiting Petroleum (NYSE:WLL) bounded upward more than 55% for the quarter, fueled by rising crude prices and its strong first-quarter results. After struggling to scrape by on lower oil prices, Whiting’s cash flow has surged this year, providing it enough money to fund its drilling program with more than $100 million to spare during the first quarter.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Several analysts have recently updated their ratings and price targets for Whiting Petroleum (NYSE: WLL):

    2/15/2019 – Whiting Petroleum was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Whiting Petroleum's core operations are focused in North Dakota's Williston Basin, providing this E&P with an enviable acreage of top-tier assets and a multi-year drilling inventory. The company’s continually improving drilling efficiency has driven down cash costs while leading to attractive cash flow generation. However, as a counter to these strengths, Whiting Petroleum still carries considerable debt load, which may spell trouble. Moreover, the company’s price hedges have exposed it to significant risks amid the high volatility in crude prices. As such, the stock is expected to perform in line with the broader market.” 2/12/2019 – Whiting Petroleum is now covered by analysts at KeyCorp. They set an “overweight” rating and a $33.00 price target on the stock. 2/9/2019 – Whiting Petroleum was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating.

    Matt DiLallo (Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

Top 10 Oil Stocks To Invest In 2019: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Back in 2011, Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) elected to spin off Marathon Petroleum. At the time, much of the reasoning for the split was that both entities would garner higher valuations than as an integrated company. Also, by separating them, both could best allocate capital to grow shareholder value. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That’s why several oil companies have authorized share buyback programs to take advantage of the disconnect. Three of the latest entrants are Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY), and Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B). Here’s why they think their stocks are great buys. 

  • [By ]

    Presto, West Texas Intermediate crude rose 3% to $71.18, the highest since December 2014, boosting shares of oil companies including Occidental (OXY) , which gained 4.8%, Marathon (MRO) , up 3.8%, and Apache (APA) , which gained 2.5%. Spot gasoline also rose 2.7% to $2.17 a gallon, boding ill for the summer driving season in the U.S. and potentially eroding any gains middle-class Americans received from the Trump tax cuts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) delivered strong operational and financial results through the third quarter of last year, which had the company on track to end 2018 on a high note. Investors will find out whether that’s the case when the company reports its fourth-quarter results. That’s one of several things they should keep their eye on when reviewing that report.

    Diamondback Energy’s investment in the EPIC Crude Oil Pipeline is worth noting because it follows a blueprint laid out by Apache (NYSE:APA) for creating midstream value. Apache spent the last couple of years investing in the build-out of midstream infrastructure to support the growth of its Alpine High discovery in the Permian. Initially, the company invested capital in constructing natural gas-gathering pipelines and other related infrastructure to move its production to regional hubs. However, as Apache signed up to be a major shipper on longer-haul pipeline developments, it also secured options to participate in these projects, making five such agreements.

    If you’re shopping for great buys in the oil patch right now, three Motley Fool contributors think you should take a close look at tech-heavy but asset-light oilfield services provider Core Laboratories N.V. (NYSE:CLB), value-priced independent oil producer Apache Corporation (NYSE:APA), and refining giant Marathon Petroleum Corp (NYSE:MPC).

    Apache Corporation (NYSE:APA) stunned the oil and gas world in late 2016 by announcing the discovery of the Alpine High play in a long-overlooked spot of the Permian Basin.

However, that growth wouldn’t materialize overnight because Apache first had to build out the infrastructure needed to develop the field from scratch.

    Kinder Morgan is already building a multibillion-dollar gas pipeline out of the Permian Basin after starting work on the Gulf Coast Express (GCX) in the first quarter. The company is developing that $1.75 billion pipeline in a partnership with Targa Resources and DCP Midstream. GCX will transport up to 1.98 Bcf/d of natural gas from shippers such as Apache (NYSE:APA), which not only signed a transportation agreement, but holds an option to buy a 15% stake in the pipeline from Kinder Morgan.

    Companies in this region have had more measured growth plans because of the lack of pipelines. As Miller mentioned, though, improved efficiency has resulted in most companies outpacing their production growth plans. The lack of takeaway capacity has led to much lower prices for in-basin production. Range Resources (NYSE:RRC), one of the larger producers in the region, has noted that its price realizations were 10% below benchmark prices because of a lack of takeaway capacity.
