Top 10 Energy Stocks For 2019

OPEC and its allies including Russia may next year ease the crude-output curbs that have helped prices recover from the worst crash in a generation, according to Saudi Arabia’s oil minister.

With the market moving toward equilibrium and bloated inventories shrinking, the next step for global producers will be to phase out the reductions, Khalid Al-Falih told reporters in New Delhi on Saturday. The nations taking part in the supply curbs are currently studying what a crude re-balancing will entail, and will announce their next steps once that’s analyzed, he said.

The production curbs may be eased “sometime in 2019, but we don’t know when and we don’t know how,” Al-Falih said. “What we know is that it’s going to be done in a way that it will not in any way disturb the balance and undo the hard work since 2016.”

A deal between the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its partners aimed at shrinking a global glut began in 2017 and runs through the end of this year. With U.S. production booming and the International Energy Agency predicting that expanding supply from non-OPEC countries may cover global demand growth for the next two years, speculation has increased over how long the cartel will have to curb supply.

    Crude prices in the U.S. continued their ascent today, rising nearly 3% to about $72.50 a barrel — the highest level since late 2014 — after the U.S. government reported a massive drawdown of oil storage levels. This news sent most oil stocks soaring, including Sanchez Energy (NYSE:SN) — up 12% at one point — and Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO), which rallied nearly 6% by the mid-afternoon and was one of the biggest gainers in the S&P 500. However, that rally in the oil market didn’t drive up the entire sector as CNX Midstream (NYSE:CNXM) and Mammoth Energy Services (NASDAQ:TUSK) both tumbled double-digits on the day.

    Oil has continued its remarkable rise this year, rallying another 10%, to more than $65 a barrel in the U.S. That rebound has taken most oil stocks up with it. However, a handful managed to lose ground this year, including Laredo Petroleum (NYSE:LPI), Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO), and Cimarex Energy (NYSE:XEC), which are all down double digits. That sell-off makes them worth a closer look.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Several well-respected oil CEOs have made it clear that they have no appetite for making a big acquisition, even though oil prices have improved dramatically. However, not all companies are against mergers and acquisitions (M&A). Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO) made waves earlier this year when it acquired RSP Permian (NYSE:RSPP) in a $9.5 billion deal. Concho CEO Tim Leach even saw his company’s transaction as a “roadmap for in-basin consolidation” in the Permian. While it has yet to set off an M&A boom, that doesn’t mean transaction activity won’t heat up.

Source: ThinkstockDecember 28, 2017: The S&P 500 closed up 0.2% at 2,687.45. The DJIA closed up 0.25% at 24,836.54. Separately, the Nasdaq wasup 0.2%at 6,950.16.

Thursday was a relatively positive day for the markets, albeit a slow one. While the exchanges did not hit new highs they were easily within striking distance. Crude oil recovered slightly on the day, and is less than a dollar away from $60. The S&P 500 sectors were nearly all positive. The best performing sectors were utilities and real estate, up 0.5% and 0.6%, respectively. The worst performing sector was consumer staples down 0.2%.

Crude oil was up 0.4% at $59.88.

Gold was up 0.4% at $1,297.10.

The S&P 500 stock posting the largest daily percentage loss ahead of the close Thursday was Monster Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ: MNST) which traded down about 2% at $62.99. The stocks 52-week range is $41.02 to $64.79. Volume was just over 1 million versus the daily average of about 2 million shares.

Top Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Discover Financial Services(DFS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    While a new year has been ushered in, it is clear PayPal’s philosophy has not changed. Last week, PayPal entered into another major agreement, this time with credit card issuerDiscover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS).

  • [By JACK HOUGH]

    Like CVS, Discover has trounced the broad market over the long term but sold off recently. It’s down more than 15% this year. Costs rose early in the year in part due to one-time expenses related to anti-money-laundering efforts and other regulatory concerns. Analysts predict an offsetting decline in expenses next year. Don’t confuse Discover with a company that’s primarily in the business of running a credit-card network, like Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). It’s basically a credit-card lender, like Capital One Financial (COF), that runs its own network to gain a competitive advantage.

    By saving on network fees, Discover can offer attractive card rewards, including a popular cash-back program. Any card lender can offer cash back, of course, but being too aggressive risks hurting margins. Discover has grown its portfolio of credit-card loans much faster than big banks have in recent years. And it has done so with industry-leading returns on capital. Rising growth could be on the way. Early this year, Discover went on a marketing spree. Last quarter, it reported its best card growth since 2007. Historically, new-card growth and loan growth have been closely correlated. In a November note to investors, Morgan Stanley analyst Cheryl Pate predicted accelerating loan growth within six months. Meanwhile, defaults remain low. Shares sell for less than 10 times projected earnings for the next four quarters, down from 12 times at the end of last year. They could rise 20% on a combination of earnings growth and a valuation rebound. The dividend yield is 2%.

    We get the bull case.American Express is a blue-chip Dow component with an iconic global brand. It generates >30% returns on tangible, but it is trading well below its historical multiple and has underperformed post the election. Costco is now in the rearview mirror, and the string of negative surprises that have weighed on the stock are now poised to abate and position the company to start surprising positively. With Capital One Financial (COF), Discover Financial Services (DFS), and Synchrony Financial (SYF) all trading near their historical peaks, some have concluded thatAmerican Express is headed back to its historical high above $90. While this thought process may sound logical, we believe it only works in a world where generalists are steering the ship, and view it as highly susceptible to unraveling when negative revisions hit. American Express is not the business it once was, it doesnt have the same earnings power, and, in our view, it doesnt deserve to trade near its historical valuation.

Top Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Meritage Corporation(MTH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jason Hall]

    WhenMeritage Homes Corp(NYSE:MTH) last reported earnings to wrap up fiscal 2016, it left investors with reason to be concerned. The company finished the year with strong 15% home-closing revenue growth in the fourth quarter, 19% home-closing revenue growth for the full year, and a 15% jump in earnings per share for the year. Unfortunately, the homebuilder reported that its unit sales, and that its backlog of homes on order, were down from the year-ago period in the fourth quarter — not a positive metric considering the general strength of the new homes market and the company’s success in expanding and growing in recent years.

Top Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now: North American Energy Partners, Inc.(NOA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    In trading on Tuesday, energy shares slipped by 1.36 percent. Meanwhile, top losers in the sector included Northern Oil & Gas, Inc. (NYSE: NOG), down 9 percent, and North American Energy Partners Inc.(USA) (NYSE: NOA), down 6 percent.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

It’s been another rough week for Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM). The stock is down 8.64% since the beginning of the year and the energy giant is the biggest loser of just five Dow stocks trading down for the year to date.

The share price closed the week up $1.38 compared with the prior week, mostly on the strength of comments by the company’s CEO.

Exxon’s new CEO, Darren Woods, will leave a good deal of his predecessor’s plans in place, but he is making some major changes as well. Woods said last week that 2017 production would rise from a prior estimated range of 4 to 4.2 million barrels a day to a new range of 4 to 4.4 million barrels. That’s barely unchanged from 2016 production and marks a significant change in the company’s strategy.

Exxon will spend about a third of its planned capital budget of around $25 billion on shale plays this year. Boosting production from shale is much cheaper and far less costly than developing massive deepwater or other conventional plays. Woods believes that investing in shale will generate cash flow more quickly without diluting returns. Because Exxon is vertically integrated it could capture more value than a producer who has to settle for the wellhead price of crude.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Phillips 66 Partners LP(PSXP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.KIPLINGER.COM]

    As PSX has grown as a refining outfit, it has added midstream assets pipelines, terminals, rail lines and storage farms. Owning pipelines and gathering systems is a great way to generate cash flows. Phillips enhanced that by placing them inside of its master limited partnership, Phillip 66 Partners LP (PSXP). That way, PSX is preparing to keep its profits even when oil does inevitably rise.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The other highlight this quarter was the midstream business. That segment benefited from a full quarter of Phillips 66’s recently completed Freeport LPG Export Terminal as well as a turnaround in results at DCP Midstream (NYSE:DCP). After causing the company to record a loss on its investment last quarter, the DCP Midstream investment was back in the green this quarter, benefiting from hedging and lower costs. Meanwhile, the company’s other MLP investment, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP), delivered another steady quarter thanks to that entity’s focus on owning stable fee-based assets.

    In 2016, PAA partnered with Phillips 66 Partners LP (NYSE: PSXP) to build a $15 million pipeline expansion between Oklahoma and Canada. The new pipeline adds capacity for 100,000 more barrels of oil a day.

    Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE: PSXP) was raised to Buy from Neutral with a $60 price target at Goldman Sachs on December 18. The units were last seen trading at $51.23, and the 5% yield would represent a total return of over 22% if the firm is correct. The 52-week range is $44.40 to $58.00, and the consensus price target is $59.43.

    The firm has reaffirmed a “Buy” rating on NOV, and has raised the company’s price target from $84 to $91. This price target suggests a 14% increase from the stock’s current price of $78.24.

    Analyst Brad Handler noted that NOV’s weak margin will likely rebound in 2014 and the chances of a dividend increase are high.

    Looking forward, the firm has lifted its order estimates for FY2013 from $10.8 billion to $11.3 billion. FY2014 earnings estimates have been raised from $6.40 to $6.50 per share and FY2015 estimates have been increased from $7.65 to $7.95 per share.

    National-Oilwell Varco shares were up 76 cents, or 0.97% during pre-market trading Monday. The stock is up 14% YTD.

    All good things must come to an end, and for all but the last 10 minutes ofFriday’s market, it looked like today would be the day thatthe Dow Jones Industrials would finally break its streak of record highs. Yet a last-minute boost sent all three major market benchmarks into the black, and in the absence of news moving the market to finish the week, positive market sentiment was enough to keep stocks climbing. Yet some stocks still posted dramatic declines, and Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), Zoe’s Kitchen (NYSE:ZOES), and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    Natural gas had been under pressure all year, especially after this past February was the warmest since 1954. By mid-March, gas had lost a quarter of its value because of an oversupplied market. However, it awoke from that slumber toward the end of March thanks in part to the triumphant return of winter, which pounded parts of the nation with a major late-season snowstorm. That storm drove up demand for gas, sending the stocks of several gas producers soaring late last month, including Rice Energy and larger rivalsChesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) and Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), which both rose more than 5%.

Benjamin Graham once wrote, diversification is an established tenet of conservative investment. By accepting it so universally, investors are really demonstrating their acceptance of the margin-of-safety principle, to which diversification is the companion.

In other words, Graham believed that diversification is perhaps the simplest and cheapest form of utilizing the margin of safety. Its the reason that the catchphrase dont pull all of your eggs in one basket was coined.
