Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

LG Chem Ltd. shares slumped Monday after General Motors Co. expanded its safety recall of its all-electric Chevy Bolt vehicles carrying possibly faulty LG batteries.

Shares in the South Korean company, which fully owns battery maker LG Energy Solution, fell as much as 9.8% to KRW810,000 in Monday morning trading. The stock was recently 8.9% lower at KRW818,000, underperforming the benchmark Kospi’s gains of more than 1%.

GM said it is working closely with LG Chem to replace the entire battery module with a new one in the affected vehicles.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: ENI S.p.A.(E)

Eni SpA with its consolidated subsidiaries of the continuing operations engages in oil&gas exploration, development and production, marketing of gas, electricity and LNG, power generation, refining and marketing of petroleum products and, commodity trading. In 2015, the Group commenced a plan to divest its Engineering & Construction segment, which is managed by the subsidiary Saipem (Eni’s interest being 42.9%), and its Chemical business which is managed by Eni’s wholly-owned subsidiary Versalis. In the 2015 Consolidated Financial Statements, the two segments have been accounted for in accordance with IFRS 5 “non-current assets held for sale and discontinued operations”. Therefore, they have been disclosed as discontinued operations and have been measured at the lower of their carrying amounts and fair value; results of operations and cash flow of the comparative periods have been restated accordingly.   Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ENI (NYSE:E) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “With recovering oil prices, Eni’s operating profits from its Refining & Marketing business has gone down in the first half of 2018 against the comparable period of 2017. Also, operating profit from its Chemical business fell 79% during this period due to rising costs of oil-based feedstock. Moreover, Eni has sold 50% of its stake in the Zohr field, a high yielding project, which can impact its revenues. Fall in demand for products like gasoil and gasoline, in Italy, is also a concern for the company. If this consumption trend persists, the company’s profit levels will get affected. Given these headwinds, Eni seems like a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit.”

    Eni SpA (NYSE:E) has received an average rating of “Hold” from the twelve analysts that are presently covering the company, MarketBeat.com reports.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

For this episode of Motley Fool Answers, Robert Brokamp and Alison Southwick bring in an outside expert to discuss one of the more fraught and complex challenges that many of us will face as adults: becoming a primary caregiver for an aging loved one. It’s a position that can sap your time, your energy, your emotions and your finances — and that’s when things are going normally. In addition to being a pro on the subject, their guest, the AARP’s Amy Goyer, has traveled this path with multiple family members, and she has plenty of straightforward, actionable advice to share.

In this segment, she talks about the extra challenges of being a long-distance caregiver. In our highly mobile society, it’s very possible no effective surrogate will be living anywhere near an elderly relative when they need more frequent assistance. But even if there is one, those who live farther away can’t just delegate all the responsibility on the one who has proximity.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Suncor Energy Inc.(SU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Even though Canadian oil giant Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has been a cash-generating machine for its investors in recent quarters, the company continues to struggle with one of its premier assets: Syncrude. The oil-sands mining and upgrading facilities for this massive project in Alberta have been shut down or not running at full capacity several times over the past few years, and it is keeping Suncor from realizing its full potential.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Toronto Dominion Bank increased its position in shares of Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) (TSE:SU) by 30.9% during the first quarter, according to the company in its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The firm owned 9,779,382 shares of the oil and gas producer’s stock after acquiring an additional 2,309,941 shares during the period. Suncor Energy makes up about 0.8% of Toronto Dominion Bank’s investment portfolio, making the stock its 11th largest position. Toronto Dominion Bank owned approximately 0.60% of Suncor Energy worth $337,645,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has richly rewarded investors over the past year. Not only has the stock vastly outperformed both the S&P 500 and most other oil stocks, but it has returned a boatload of cash to shareholders through a higher dividend and share repurchases. Cash returns could rise some more in the coming months thanks two recently completed expansion projects and higher oil prices. These catalysts could be just the fuel this Canadian oil stock needs to continue outperforming.

    Shares of Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc (NYSE:HLX) soared 33.3% last month thanks to a combination of higher oil prices, strong first-quarter results, and a string of analyst upgrades.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Higher oil prices haven’t helped large integrated oil companies such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) much, though they did see gains Tuesday with the rest o the market and after a positive note from Bank of America Merrill on Exxon.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

In Exxon’s case, the oil giant expects its production in the Permian to grow fivefold by 2025 when it should average more than 800,000 BPD. Meanwhile, Chevron holds an estimated 11.2 billion BOE of resources in the Permian, which positions it to grow its output in the region from around 200,000 BOE/D up to more than 600,000 BOE/D by 2022.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: 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.

    SG Americas Securities LLC lowered its holdings in Williams Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:WPZ) by 27.7% in the 1st quarter, according to the company in its most recent 13F filing with the SEC.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Emissions-free RVs aren’t wishful thinking any longer, but don’t expect them to be popping up on any neighborhood driveways this summer.

Winnebago Industries has announced the launch of an all-electric chassis aimed at the market for commercial vehicles like bloodmobiles, mobile medical clinics and mobile classrooms. The zero-emissions vehicle will be available in 33-foot and 38-foot lengths and can weigh up to 26,000 pounds.

The vehicle isn’t suited to use as a motorhome yet because of its limited range. But the future for alternative-energy RVs doesn’t seem to be decades away, however. Alternative energy news site Electrek reported last fall on a German consumer RV prototype powered by solar panels and a battery pack that can travel at more than 100 miles per charge.

The cost for producing high-powered lithium-ion batteries is also plummeting. Just eight years ago, the cost of a battery for vehicular purposes was about $1,000 per kilowatt-hour of use, according to a Bloomberg New Energy Finance report. In 2016, the cost was down to $273 per hour.
