Top Tech Stocks For 2019

On Tuesday, our Under the Radar Movers newsletter suggested going long on small cap semiconductor stock Pixelworks, Inc (NASDAQ: PXLW):

“There are a couple of things going on with Pixelworks that are prompting this purchase. One of them is the steep low and subsequent reversal from the 9th (marked with an arrow on the chart). All it took for that selloff to turn into a capitulation is a brush with the 200-day moving average line, and ever since then it’s been nothing but buying. At the same time, thank to today’s high-volume surge, PXLW has broken above a major technical ceiling.

Our Under the Radar Movers newsletter has a more thorough discussion about Pixelworks’ technical chart and a potential long trading strategy:

    Music-streaming pioneer Pandora(NYSE:P) has just releaseda new tier for its on-demand Premium music streaming service. Premium Family plans are now available for $15 per month and can include up to six users.

Pandora’s Premium Family plan includes a feature called “Our Soundtrack,” which is a personalized playlist that is created based on a combination of all family members’ listening preferences.

    Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

The ultracapacitor maker Maxwell Technologies (MXWL) reported on 2017 results last month, and after digesting some of what was mentioned on the earnings call and taking a look at trends, an updated view is warranted, although I will plan to wait until later in the year to address valuation specifically. Ironically, as it turns out, I’m not the only one who thinks now a good time to check in on the name, for just as I was putting the finishing touches on this article, fellow Seeking Alpha contributor Stephen Simpson has also published his updated view, which I would recommend to anyone interested in Maxwell. For the uninitiated, an ultracapacitor is an energy storage solution that can supply relatively high amounts of power that is both dispersed and recharged fairly quickly, but thus far has not been developed to be able to store and supply energy as batteries do, in which the power is dispersed more slowly. A reasonable explanation of the basic idea of the technology can be found from this YouTube video.

    Matador has grown its reserves throughout the commodity cycle, as well as its production and cash flow. Haas also likes the company’s history of identifying and acquiring acreage early and cheaply. Much of the analyst’s positive outlook is derived from Matador’s successful monetization of midstream assets and pattern of reinvestment.

    Wunderlich’s Irene Haas explains why she’s a fan of the deal:

    Noble Energy (NBL) has agreed to acquire Clayton Williams Energy Inc. (CWEI-$103.98, Hold) for $3.4 billion. The transaction has been approved by both boards and should close during 2Q17. NBL will gain 71,000 net acres in Reeves County, production of 10,000 boepd, and 2,400 gross locations (with 8,000 lateral length) in the Wolfcamp, with net un-risked resource potential of over 1 billion boe. Netting out production, acreage outside of Reeves County, and midstream assets, NBL valued the Reeves County acreage at~$32,000 per net acre. NBL has the balance sheet and the technical expertise to develop the project quickly and generate meaningful production and cash flow growth. We reiterate our Buy rating on NBL.

    Noble Energy’s market capitalization rose to $17.2 billion from $16.1 billion on Friday. It reported a net lossof $2.4 billion on sales of $3 billion in 2015.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Newfield Exploration Company(NFX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The large cap E&Ps we cover raised ~ $6.5 billion of equity in 2015 and are likely to consider additional issuance in 2016. Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) raised $1.3 billion on January 5th and Hess Corp. (HES) raised $1.5 billion of equity/equity-linked earlier this month. We think highly leveraged companies such as Devon Energy,Encana andRange Resources (RRC) and companies with a large deficit (before asset sales), such asAnadarko Petroleum and Devon Energy, are most likely to consider raising equity. Additionally, we believe companies such as WPX Energy (WPX), Southwestern Energy (SWN), Marathon Oil, Continental Resources (CLR),Noble Energy and Newfield Exploration (NFX) could issue equity while several levered companies may be unwilling or unable to access equity markets. We do not think Apache, Canadian Natural Resource, EOG Resources (EOG), Occidental Petroleum orPioneer Natural Resources are likely to issue equity this year.

    Not to be outdone, rival Canadian oil pipeline giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) announced a transformational gas-focused deal of its own, agreeing to acquire U.S. pipeline company Spectra Energy (NYSE:SE) for $28 billion. That transaction will catapult Enbridge past TransCanada and create the largest energy infrastructure company in North America. Further, the deal will bolster Enbridge’s near-term capital project backlog to $20 billion, while enhancing its inventory of longer-term investment opportunities to $37 billion. This pipeline supports Enbridge’s view that it can increase its dividend by 10% to 12% annually through 2024.
