Top Small Cap Stocks To Watch Right Now

China’s central bank on Thursday refrained from immediately following the Federal Reserve in raising borrowing costs.

The People’s Bank of China had been widely anticipated to react to the U.S. hike by lifting the cost of reverse-repurchase agreements for the second time this year, following three increases in 2017.

“It appears the PBOC decided that growth is slowing and inflation is low and well below target, while money market rates are relatively high so they don’t want to boost them further,” said Dariusz Kowalczyk, senior emerging-market strategist at Credit Agricole SA in Hong Kong.

Chinese equities were boosted by the news. The Shanghai Composite Index erased a loss of 0.5 percent to rise 0.3 percent, while the ChiNext gauge of small caps and tech stocks led gains, climbing 0.9 percent. Government bond futures also rallied, with the most active 10-year contracts spiking 0.45 percent, the most since April 18 — the day after the PBOC cut reserve requirement ratio. The yield on sovereign notes due in a decade was little changed at 3.68 percent as of 10:10 a.m. in Shanghai.

Top Small Cap Stocks To Watch Right Now: NextEra Energy Partners, LP(NEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) announced this week that it would acquire a portfolio of wind and solar assets from its parent NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) for $1.275 billion. The transaction, which the company will finance through a unique arrangement with leading asset manager BlackRock (NYSE:BLK), keeps it on track to grow its 3.6%-yielding dividend at a 12% to 15% annual pace all the way through 2023. That forecast could energize the company to produce market-smashing returns in the coming years.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That said, one partnership has stood out from the crowd: NextEra Energy Partners LP (NYSE:NEP). That’s not surprising considering it has a close affiliation with the world’s largest utility by market valuation, NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), which doubles as the largest owner of wind and solar farms in the United States. As the partnership turns four years old this month, it’s a good time for investors that may have overlooked it to this point to reconsider.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    It’s only March, but NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP) has already announced transactions that will allow it to meet its growth objectives for the year. That should pique the interest of investors, especially considering shares are trading roughly 10% below last year’s peak, and at more attractive valuations than other renewable energy yieldcos.

    There are still plenty of asset transactions taking place in the world of alternative and renewable energy sources. A transaction was announced on Monday by NextEra Energy Partners L.P. (NYSE: NEP) to acquire a geographically diverse portfolio wind and solar projects. NextEra Energy Partners entered into a $900 million convertible equity portfolio financing agreement with a unit of KKR & Co. Inc. (NYSE: KKR) in the transaction.

Top Small Cap Stocks To Watch Right Now: Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.(ETE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On Energy Transfer Equity’s (NYSE:ETE) first-quarter conference call, the company’s management team provided investors with a unique glimpse of what’s going on behind the scenes. One of the things they’re working on is the acquisition of namesake MLP Energy Transfer Partners. CEO Kelcy Warren said on the call that the companies have “looked at every scenario possible to us” and that the only one that makes mathematical sense is for Energy Transfer Equity to buy its MLP. That transaction would not only simplify the company’s corporate structure but could enable Energy Transfer to resume growing its 7.1% yielding distribution.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One reason investors are worried that Energy Transfer might need to reduce its distribution is that the company barely generates enough cash flow to support it without the help of its parent Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE). In 2017, Energy Transfer Partners produced $4.19 billion in distributable cash flow and would have paid out $4.15 billion to investors if it wasn’t for the fact that Energy Transfer Equity relinquished its rights to $656 million of that cash. While that support boosted the distribution coverage ratio from a tight 1.0 times to a more comfortable 1.2 times, it was only a temporary fix since Energy Transfer Equity’s support will diminish significantly in 2018 before declining further in 2019 and 2020.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Energy Transfer Equity (NYSE:ETE) reported a significant increase in distributable cash flow during the second quarter due to its relationship with Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP). Not only did its namesake master limited partnership report strong results thanks to recently completed expansion projects, but Energy Transfer Equity benefited from being able to withdraw some of the support it provided the partnership during the heavy spending portion of its expansion phase. That strong showing from the MLP bodes well for Energy Transfer Equity’s future since it’s in the process of acquiring that entity.

    Energy Transfer Equity LP Unit (NYSE:ETE) was upgraded by analysts at US Capital Advisors from a hold rating to an overweight rating.

Protect American jobs by getting tough on China.

That’s the underlying idea behind President-elect Donald Trump’s threat of a 45% tariff against China as a ploy to bring jobs back to America.

Before pursuing that strategy, however, Trump might want to check out what happened when his predecessor tried that.

President Obama slapped a stiff 35% tariff on Chinese tires in 2009 after American companies complained about unfair competition. They said China was flooding America with tires at low prices making it tough for U.S. companies to compete. The tire tariff gradually waned, and finally ended in 2012.

The tariff saved 1,200 U.S. tire jobs, which had been in sharp decline. And U.S. tire production rose after a major decline.

“Over a thousand Americans are working today because we stopped a surge in Chinese tires,” Obama said in his 2012 State of the Union address.

But a study from the Peterson Institute of International Economics found that the tariffs cost Americans in many other ways.

    I’ve long thought that Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) would be a suitable buyer, as was the subject of unconfirmed rumors last month. However, I could also envision a defense contractor moving in simply because so much of the intellectual property could easily crossover to military applications. Or, even Google X for that matter.

    So, to help investors separate the wheat from the chaff, we asked our Foolish contributors which stocks they thought are worth owning until at least 2030. These three healthcare specialists recommended Medtronic (NYSE:MDT), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), andIntuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG). Read on to find out why.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When an investor thinks of stocks in the cardio-monitoring arena, names like General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) and Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) tend to surface first. And well they should. Medtronic is the largest name dedicated solely to equipment that tells doctors and nurses how well a patient’s heart is functioning, while GE Healthcare smartly leverages the name of its parent company’s recognizable name to win market share in the medical equipment space.

    General Electric and Medtronic aren’t the only names in town, however, and certainly not the top prospects for an investor seeking out a fresh, undiscovered growth opportunity. That honor arguably belongs to an up-and-coming small cap outfit called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY), which is nearing its first-ever revenue.

    Don’t look for a Biotricity product quite yet, as they’re not on the market. Consumers as well as investors will want to keep their eyes and ears open for two of them soon though, however, with one of those devices being a high-precision, FDA-approved instrument for use by healthcare workers in a clinical setting. The other device is a consumer-oriented version of the same technology, giving BTCY access to not just one but two crucial markets. Even more recently Biotricity reported it was opening up its development pipeline to the fetal monitoring and sleep apnea markets. Heart-monitoring is the near-term venture, though.

    The two products are called biotricity and biolife (neither moniker is supposed to be capitalized). The latter is a wireless, remote consumer-oriented heart rate and activity monitoring device, and the former is a clinical-grade monitoring device… also wireless and remotely operated/monitored.

    Bioflux is only available by prescription. The bioflux hardware includes an ECG (heart-rhythm) monitoring device, software, and if desired, service from a monitoring lab that performs remote diagnostic monitoring for up to 30 consecutive days at a time. It

Cramer: Fundamentals Provide a Dose of Reality

Posted at 2:39 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2016

We always have to keep one eye on the fundamentals during this period of what many describe as total excess. We have to use the data we can grab to be able to make a case that we aren’t going too far too fast beyond the promises that we’ve gotten from President-elect Trump, promises that have to come true or else we are in for a serious correction in the first quarter of 2017.

Fortunately, we have both macro or top-down data and micro or individual company reports, to do a reality check.

For example, we got existing-home sales, which were quite strong–5.61 million in November, the best since February 2007. I can’t stress how important that figure is. Robust existing-home sales are crucial to all sorts of businesses, from banks to retailers to service companies that help install and renovate.

    We believe TXRH fundamentals remain best-in-class. That said, the near-term focus remains on directional comps. And not unlike the broader industry, TXRH comps eased significantly to close 2016. Such led to disappointing 4Q16 results from top to bottom. Importantly, while the brand ‘is not immune’ to industry comp headwinds, the relative outperformance to the category was maintained. Looking to 2017, key guidance metrics were reiterated. While questions remain on whether the recent easing of industry comps will persist, we remain comforted by TXRH’s relative outperformance and easing comps as we move through 2017.

In the past six months, NextEra Energy Partners (NYSE:NEP), NRG Yield (NYSE:NYLD), and Pattern Energy Group (NASDAQ:PEGI) have all outperformed the market, and even the maligned 8point3 Energy Partners (NASDAQ:CAFD) has come close.

stock market terms

It's official – investors have borrowed more cash than ever to buy stocks…   We're talking nearly $600 billion borrowed "on margin" – when you add up the margin debt on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq stock markets.   It's more money than investors borrowed at the peak of the dot-com boom in 2000. And more money than the 2007 peak just before the global financial crisis.   That sounds scary, right?   Many "experts" who are looking for a reason for the market to go down might point to it as a sign of the top. But is it something to worry about? Let's take a look…   This chart shows the NYSE's margin debt versus the S&P 500 Index. You can see that we're now at an all-time high… above previous highs when stocks peaked in 2000 and 2007.
