Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

A second round of talks on renegotiating NAFTA will kick off Friday in Mexico City, where officials from the U.S., Mexico and Canada will discuss how to modernize the trade pact, even as President Trump repeatedly threatens to abandon the accord if it doesn’t meet his demands.

New proposals are expected to be introduced this weekend, according to Raul Urteaga Trani, a Mexican official who is advising his country’s trade negotiators. But he declined to say what specifically will be discussed.

Mexico has frequently said the 23-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement must be modernized, with improvements needed in the energy and e-commerce sectors, according to Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray .

Trump, however, believes the deal needs a complete overhaul, calling it the “worst trade deal ever made.” He has also threatened to pull the U.S. out of the pact.

“Hopefully we can renegotiate it, but if we can’t, we’ll terminate it and we’ll start all over again,” Trump said during a speech in Missouri on Wednesday.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

As we know, the broad stock market indices have been resilient all year. And that strength, in large part, can be credited to a small group of stocks.

Among that group, the blue chip Internet stocks have led the way: Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Google and Netflix. Halfway through the year, those five stocks were up more than 40% on average. And those five stocks carry a lot of weight in the performance of the indexes.

And given the valuation of the index, you constantly hear how the market is overvalued or "fairly valued." It’s not true, for the reasons we’ve often discussed, related to historical low interest rates environments. And it’s certainly not true for the energy sector.

Take a look at energy performance year-to-date relative to the rest of the market:

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019: Williams Partners L.P.(WPZ)

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]

    Williams Companies is in the midst of a major transition. It recently agreed to acquire the rest of its MLP, Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ), in a $10.4 billion deal. The pipeline giant is making this acquisition so that it can more easily finance the expansion projects Williams Partners has under development. The transaction would allow it to free up some cash flow and improve its credit metrics, giving it more financial flexibility.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    There’s an interesting dichotomy here, however. Crestwood was looking to stay financially disciplined, but it also needed to invest to grow. Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Barclays set a $46.00 price target on Williams Pipeline Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in a research note published on Saturday. The brokerage currently has a hold rating on the pipeline company’s stock.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Natural gas pipeline giant Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) announced today that it agreed to acquire the rest of its master limited partnership (MLP) Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) that it didn’t already own in a $10.5 billion deal. Not to be outdone, Canadian energy infrastructure giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) made an offer to acquire its namesake MLP Enbridge Energy Partners (NYSE:EEP), along with the rest of its publicly traded entities, including Spectra Energy Partners (NYSE:SEP). These transactions have big implications not only for investors in these entities but for those who own other pipeline companies, too.

    The stock market gave up modest amounts of ground on Wednesday, as investors reacted negatively to bad news on the earnings front in some key areas of the market. Losses were generally limited, though, with major indexes falling between 0.1% and 0.4%. Nevertheless, some high-profile stocks suffered more dramatic declines. Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA), Aphria (NYSE:APHA), and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The size of Devon’s buyback is worth noting given the impact that smaller plans have had on the shares of rivals in the past year. Last fall, for example, Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) announced a $2.5 billion share repurchase program, which at the time could have retired 10% of its outstanding shares. Anadarko would go on to add $500 million to that plan earlier this year, which it expected to complete by the end of the second quarter. It’s been a needle-mover for the company’s stock, which has rocketed 63% since it made the initial announcement in September. For comparison’s sake, Devon’s stock is up about 27% over that time frame while crude has surged 39%.

    A second factor that’s a must for any E&P company is a low oil price breakeven level, which is the oil price where the company can produce enough cash to drill the wells needed to maintain its current production rate as well as fund its dividend if it pays one. This number can vary wildly by company, and many don’t share it publicly. However, a good target is to find E&P companies with a breakeven level of less than $40 a barrel since that means an oil producer can survive at a fairly low oil price and thrive when it’s higher. Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY) is a great example of an oil company with a low breakeven level since it recently achieved its goal to get this number to $40 a barrel. By dropping its breakeven down to $40, Occidental can now generate enough cash at $50 oil to pay its lucrative dividend and grow production at 5% to 8% annual pace, while generating significant excess above that price so that it can grow even faster and repurchase stock. Most oil producers highlight their oil breakeven level in the investor presentations posted to their website. If the company doesn’t highlight this number, it’s likely because it has a high breakeven level.

    That multi-billion-dollar project recently got a boost after Lotus Midstream agreed to participate. The private equity-backed company recently made waves after sealing a deal to buy Occidental Petroleum’s (NYSE:OXY) Centurion pipeline system, as well as its Southwest New Mexico oil-gathering system. The sale gave Occidental Petroleum a huge cash windfall that it plans on using to repurchase shares.

    Already, shale companies such as Encana (ECA) , Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) , among others, are reporting higher cash flows and earnings on higher oil prices. As a result, they are paying down debt, increasing dividends and engaging in buybacks. This is a dramatic improvement in shareholder yield for the group.

A mix of economic and political news kept investors on their toes to end the week, as fears of a possible attack on Syria watered down some of the potential upside that could have stemmed from solid earnings results from the banking sector during the morning. Even though many investors have pretty positive expectations going into earnings season, some companies suffered from disappointing news that sent their shares lower.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

The IPO market may not be at the go-go levels of the late 1990s, but the environment is still fairly bullish. This is especially the case with technology companies and biotechs. Note that there have been ten deals that have posted returns of over 100%.

However, by August, the IPO market will essentially close down. This is normal, as many investors will be on vacation.

OK then, so for the next couple weeks, what are the interesting deals that will hit the market? Well, Let’s take a look at five:

IPOs to Watch: Bloom Energy

Bloom Energy, which was founded in 2002, is a high-profile Silicon Valley clean energy operator. The company has built a stationary power generation platform — that relies on natural gas or biogas — for the commercial and industrial (C&I) segments. A system can produce 250 kilowatts of power in half the size of a standard 30-foot shipping container. Customers include biggies like Home Depot (NYSE:HD), AT&T (NYSE:T) and Kaiser Permanente.

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    We have you covered. This week, we did our digging into the numbers, and we have found three stocks that could surge 80% or more in the months ahead. Let’s dig into them as the market opens… right here.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Thursday
    A leaked report from a Chinese government think tank warned of “financial panic” across the country. In addition to concerns about the ongoing trade battle with the United States, the National Institution for Finance & Development warned about the ongoing use of leverage in the stock market. The think tank argued that China’s central bank must be ready to step in and support the nation’s markets (the Shanghai Composite is off 20% since January) in the event of a liquidity crisis. This morning, the U.S. Department of Commerce said that Q1 gross domestic product (GDP) growth slowed far more than analysts had expected. During January through March, we saw the weakest levels of consumer spending in roughly five years. GDP clocked in at just 2.0%, a downturn from the 2.2% reported by the agency last month. Markets appear to believe that the economy has rebounded during the second quarter thanks in part to the massive tax cuts in January. However, ongoing trade tensions and increasing uncertainty around the globe could potentially spur a panic at any time. In 2018, major telecom carriers will begin rolling out 5G networks across the country, and the development could be one of the biggest ever. This technological leap is creating some incredible profit opportunities fortech stocks. According to Swedish network equipment manufacturer Ericsson ADR (Nasdaq:ERIC), new 5G-related features could produce as much as $1.3 trillion annually in additional revenue for carriers by 2026. Just imagine how much money you could make if you get in early and invest right now in the top 5G stocks. It would be a fortune. Today, we show you the undervalued stock that is going to lead this revolution, and it could make you rich.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2019: Starbucks Corporation(SBUX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    For a long time, Starbucks Corporation(NASDAQ:SBUX) has billed itself as a “third place” for customers — a place aside from the home and workplace where they can feel welcome. However, that notion came under assault just weeks ago when two black men were arrested for “trespassing” in a Philadelphia Starbucks as they refused to order anything, though they were waiting for a friend in the cafe. The two men were detained for nine hours, and the news sparked outrage and calls for boycotts against the coffee chain.

    Other crypto projects like Ripple serve to transfer fiat currencies around the world. Crushing legacy systems like SWIFT regarding time and cost, Ripple is the leading player in the conversion of money transfer systems into the digital age. Rumors abound that even Starbucks (NYSE: SBUX) has plans to accept Ripple and Litecoin as payment within the next five years. Should Starbucks come on board, expect a massive move by retailers in this direction.
