Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Summit Midstream Partners, LP(SMLP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, ExxonMobil’s XTO subsidiary agreed to dedicate natural gas produced from two counties in New Mexico to Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) last July. Summit is currently investing $110 million in building out a natural gas gathering and processing system to serve new wells in that area, which should be in service this month. In addition, Summit has proposed a long-haul pipeline to move gas out of the region, which would cost up to $450 million and could help support Exxon’s growing gas output from the area.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) released its quarterly earnings data on Thursday. The pipeline company reported ($0.18) EPS for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.12 by ($0.30), MarketWatch Earnings reports. Summit Midstream Partners had a return on equity of 12.62% and a net margin of 17.59%. The business had revenue of $117.32 million during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $106.68 million.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Exxon is also working with Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) on the development of the Double E pipeline, which is a regional gas pipeline in the Permian. Exxon not only signed up to be a major shipper on Double E but has the option to acquire a 50% interest in the project. That equity stake means Exxon could help fund as much as half of the construction costs, which would ease the financial burden on the cash-strapped Summit Midstream. While Summit Midstream has yet to sanction the project, the company believes it will soon have enough shippers to move forward, which puts it on track to have the pipeline in service by the second quarter of 2021.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, Exxon signed on to be a foundation shipper on Summit Midstream’s (NYSE:SMLP) Double E Pipeline by committing to a firm transportation agreement for up to half of the pipeline’s capacity. Further, Exxon has the right to acquire up to a 50% interest in the pipeline from Summit, which could help with securing project-related funding.

Despite the modest declines, indexes remain near record highs, and even the ongoing back-and-forth of trade-related comments — both conciliatory and threatening — hasn’t done anything more than put a minor dent in a major advance for stocks in the third quarter. Yet some companies suffered from bad news. CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Jabil (NYSE:JBL), and Neogen (NASDAQ:NEOG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Hydro-Quebec will temporarily stop processing requests from cryptocurrency miners so that it can continue to fulfill its obligations to supply electricity to the entire province.

Canada’s biggest electric utility is facing “unprecedented” demand from blockchain companies that exceeds Hydro-Quebec’s short- and medium-term capacity, according to a statement Thursday. In the coming days, Hydro-Quebec will file an application to the province’s energy regulator proposing a selection process for blockchain industry projects.

Hydro-Quebec has been courting cryptocurrency miners in recent months in a bid to soak up surplus energy from dams in northern Quebec. Power rates in the province are the lowest in North America, both for consumers and industrial customers.

Regie de l’energie, as the provincial regulator is called, will be instructed to reserve a block of energy for cryptocurrency miners and to set a specific rate for the industry while considering issues including peak winter demand. Quebec wants to make sure Hydro-Quebec can maximize revenue while ensuring economic benefits such as job creation.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Friday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, with a split among the most widely followed market benchmarks that sent some up and others down. Slight downticks in oil prices and bond yields marked minor reversals from upward trends earlier in the week, but investors are still watching both energy and bonds closely to see what long-term impact they might have on the stock market. Most attention centered on individual companies, some of which reported good news that sent their shares higher. Dell Technologies (NYSE:DVMT), Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NKTR), and Westport Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:WPRT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Best Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

It’s actually quite amazing. In March of this year, I wrote a missive entitled “Fed Levitation” discussing the Fed’s ability to detach asset prices from the underlying fundamentals. To wit:

“So what is it? Are we ‘data dependent’ or are we more concerned about ‘global economic weakness?’ Or, is this just part of the Fed’s careful orchestration to support asset markets?

The Federal Reserve is trying very clearly to accomplish several goals through their very confusing ‘forward guidance:’

Keep asset prices above the recent lows to avoid triggering a rash of potential ‘margin calls’ that would fuel a more rapid price reversion in the markets. Talk down the “dollar” to provide a boost to exports (which makes up roughly 45% of corporate profits) and commodity prices. The Fed-assisted boost in oil prices also gives TBTF banks the room necessary to off-load bad energy-related debt exposure before the next price decline and run of defaults. The Fed also realizes they cannot allow market prices to overheat to the upside and, therefore, use offsetting language to quell expectations.

It’s genius.
