Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2021

It’s make-or-break time for the big banks this week as JPMorgan, Citigroup and Wells Fargo gear up for earnings Friday morning.

Financials were staging a comeback Thursday morning, with the XLF ETF rallying more than 1 percent. Despite the surge, the group is still the worst-performing sector in the past month. However, “Options Action” trader Mike Khouw says a recent spike in options activity for the group could suggest the tides are about to change.

“The XLF saw above-average activity this week,” Khouw said Wednesday on CNBC’s Fast Money. “[Thursday] we saw approximately 1.5 times the average daily volume.”

Three of the financial ETF’s top holdings JP Morgan, Citigroup and Wells Fargo are expected to move around 3 percent in either direction when they report this Friday. Of the group, Khouw suggests investors keep a close eye on Wells Fargo.

    The VQScore system gives Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) a perfect score of 4.75. This defense stock is a staple of the U.S. defense industry, and it’s the company behind the F-35 program.

    Today, SpaceX continues to charge the U.S. government significantly less (than United Launch Alliance does) for launch services. However, a pair of recent contracts totaling $739 million in value demonstrates that the U.S. government is in fact willing to pay ULA more than SpaceX for the same work — at least sometimes. But perhaps even more important to the future prospects of ULA and its co-owners Boeing and Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), ULA’s rockets are getting cheaper and moving closer to price parity with SpaceX’s.

A tight budget could materially impact the revenue outlook for Huntington Ingalls (NYSE:HII), for example, if it means slowing the pace of adding to the Navy fleet, or Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) if the Air Force must stagger its future orders of new warplanes.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

In the quest to track down every oil giant and investor that attended a recent climate change meeting with Pope Francis, two completely non-oil-related attendees appear to have been overlooked: a couple of renewable energy companies.

Michael Garland, the chief executive officer of U.S. wind and solar power company Pattern Energy Group Inc., said he and another renewable energy executive were invited to join the conversation last week to represent their industry. “We were outnumbered, but that’s OK,” he said in an interview in San Francisco Wednesday. “We felt honored to be there. We added just enough flavor on the renewable side to make it interesting.”

Garland echoed a lot of what’s already been reported out of the meeting. He said everybody agreed that there needed to be something done about climate change, that there needs to be a price on carbon — perhaps in the form of a tax on emissions — and that oil and gas companies need a way of disclosing their efforts to combat global warming without exposing themselves to lawsuits if they can’t deliver on every part of their plans.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market was mostly higher on Monday, with market participants celebrating favorable economic news on the consumer front and looking forward to another round of positive earnings reports when third-quarter earnings season starts early next month.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In addition to supporting the growth of its parent, Noble Midstream will also assist third-party producers. One of the drivers is a partnership it formed with a private-equity-backed midstream company last year to buy the Black Diamond Gathering system in the DJ Basin. That system initially supported the production of six customers, including PDC Energy (NASDAQ:PDCE). However, the partners have gone on to expand their relationship with PDC Energy as well as recently adding a new customer into the fold, which has enhanced the system’s growth prospects.
