Top Medical Stocks To Own For 2019

Small cap medical technology stock Pulse Biosciences (NASDAQ: PLSE) is now the most shorted stock on the Nasdaq with short interest of 60.14% according to Highshortinterest.com. Pulse Biosciences is a medical technology company developing a therapeutic tissue treatment platform based on Nano-Pulse Stimulation, a proprietary cell signaling technology. Nano-Pulse Stimulation is a non-thermal, precise, focal drug-free tissue treatment technology that directly affects the cell membrane and intracellular structures to stimulate unique behaviors in cells. NPS can initiate a cell death process that allows for the treatment of tissue cells with minimal inflammatory response which improves healing outcomes and supports the replacement of treated tissue cells with healthy tissue cells. In cancerous lesions, NPS has been shown in preclinical models to induce immunogenic cell death (ICD) exposing the unique antigens of the treated cells to the immune system, resulting in the generation of cytotoxic T-cells and the mounting of an adaptive immune response targeted against those cells. Pulse Biosciences is investigating a variety of applications for its technology that exploits the technology’s unique biologic effect, including immuno-oncology, dermatology and veterinary medicine.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is the largest independent E&P in the world after it spun off its midstream and downstream assets into Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) in 2012. In 2017, ConocoPhillips produced 1.4 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day from 17 different countries. Since ConocoPhillips makes most of its money producing oil, investors who buy its stock have direct exposure to the price of crude. In other words, when oil prices go up, ConocoPhillips’ profits and stock price should follow.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

November has been a bad month for Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE). The natural gas refueling company has lost around 10% of its value this month, with most of the decline coming after the company released mixed third-quarter results. I am saying mixed because Clean Energy had missed the top line estimate by around 6.5%, even though it trumped the earnings estimate by $0.02 per share.

What gives?

It looks like investors were disappointed by the fact that Clean Energy reported just 5% increase in revenue from the year-ago period, which was identical to the growth in its volumes. Thus, it is evident that Clean Energy Fuels was unable to take advantage of an improvement in natural gas prices last quarter.

In fact, in the third quarter of 2016, the average Henry Hub Natural Gas spot price was 11% higher as compared to the year-ago period. But, whatever growth that Clean Energy delivered on the top line was volume driven. This can be attributed to the fact that Clean Energy Fuels enters into agreements with its clients to sell gas at fixed price contracts that are subject to a price cap. As such, the company was unable to take advantage of the increase in spot prices.

U.S. inflation data due, decision day at the Bank of England, and Trump meets freed hostages ahead of North Korea summit. Here are some of the things people in markets are talking about today.

Inflation

Headline consumer prices are forecast to show a rise of 2.5 percent in April from a year earlier when the data is published at 8.30 a.m. Eastern Time. With some Fed policymakers already expressing a lack of concern about a short-term overshoot on the inflation level, a move further away from the bank’s 2 percent target is unlikely to ruffle too many feathers as long as the recent rise in oil prices doesn’t feed into sharper moves higher in the price level. 

Bank of England 

Today’s Bank of England decision is expected to show no change in rates following a raft of weaker-than-forecast economic data for the first quarter of the year. Traders will be looking for any change from the previous 7-2 vote in favor of a hold when the decision is announced at 7 a.m. Today’s announcement will be accompanied by an updated inflation report and will be followed by a press conference with Bank of England Governor Mark Carney at 7:30 a.m., which investors will watch closely to see if a 2018 rate rise remains on the table.

Best Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

It’s been an interesting few years for T-shirt manufacturer Delta Apparel (NYSEMKT:DLA). A huge spike in cotton prices in 2011 helped turn a near-$2 EPS in FY11 into a loss in FY12. (DLA fiscal years then ended in June; the company moved to September in 2013.) Delta managed to recover in FY13, getting EPS back over $1 – and then the company’s Soffe brand started falling apart, pushing the company back into the red in FY14. Shares fell by more than half between late 2013 and late 2014.

In response, Delta management decided to cut corporate costs to improve margins, and the acquisition of popular brand Salt Life in 2013 added a potential growth engine to complement the relatively stagnant core business. At the beginning of 2015, shares languished around $8; they’d spike to $25 by July 2016, as adjusted earnings improved substantially. After another pullback, a post-election run has moved DLA to just over $20.

Looking forward, I do think there’s more upside, with another round of significant cost savings due to hit the P&L in FY17. The risk is that those cost savings need to be balanced against a core business that still isn’t performing all that well, and a business that over the long-term hasn’t exactly been impressive in either growth or shareholder return:
