Top Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners(NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics(NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall.

The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Withers]

    Just when Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) investors were hoping for a glimmer of good news in the company’s fourth quarter earnings report, it seems this wearable device maker’s turnaround has stalled.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT)has been a meandering mess of an investment over the past two years, but it found a way to be among the market’s biggest winners last week. The leading maker of fitness wristbands saw its shares move 11.48% higher for the week.There was no particularly bullish news out on Fitbit to explain the uptick. The shares are likely just bouncing back after hitting all-time lows a week earlier following a Wall Street downgrade.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Fitbit, Inc. (NYSE: FIT) reported its most recent quarterly results after markets closed Monday. The company said that it had a net loss of $0.02 per share on $571 million in revenue, compared with consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters that called for breakeven earnings on $588.89 million in revenue. The fourth quarter from last year had a net loss of $0.56 per share on $573.77 million in revenue.

General Motors Co.’s (NYSE: GM) Chevy Bolt may be the best reviewed electric car in America. It has just won the Motor Trend 2017 “Car of the Year.” However, sales of the car are likely to be weak. Electric car buyers are few and far between.

Motor Trend editors wrote:

For only the second time in the awards’ seven decades, the sound of electrical energy being converted into motion and the sound of the automotive world shifting on its axis convinced the MOTOR TREND judges to select the Chevrolet Bolt EV as this year’s Car of the Year winner.

The Bolt EV was the first battery-powered vehicle to be conceived by GM to be a viable, affordable, mass-market, game-changing electric car, and just two numbers show why. The EPA has certified the Bolt EV will travel 238 miles on a full charge, and it costs only $29,995 after taking into consideration a $7,500 federal tax rebate.

Following a week of testing at the Hyundai-Kia Motors California Proving Ground, the MOTOR TREND judges found, “the most impressive thing about the Bolt EV is that there are no caveats and no ‘for an electric car’ qualifiers needed in any discussion. It is, simply, a world-class small car, and that’s before you factor in the benefits inherent in the smoothness, silence, and instant-on torque provided by the electric motor.”

    CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) shares shot up 32 percent to $7.15 after the company reported an agreement in principle on financial restructuring plan with main creditors and DNCA.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Friday afternoon, the energy sector proved to be a source of strength for the market. Leading the sector was strength from CGG SA (ADR) (NYSE: CGG) and Geospace Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: GEOS).

  • [By Jonas Elmerraji]

    First up is French oil service firm CGG Veritas (CGG)
    . The Eurozone-based energy stock hasn’t exactly posted blockbuster performance in 2013, but investors who ignore CGG for the final stretch of the year could be making a big mistake. That’s because of a bullish technical pattern that’s emerging in shares right now.

    CGG spent most of the last eight months looking anything but bullish. But an ascending triangle pattern is changing that. The pattern is formed by horizontal resistance to the upside at $26, and uptrending support to the below shares. Basically, as CGG bounces in between those two technical levels, it’s getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above $26. When that happens, traders have a buy signal.

    The ascending triangle pattern in CGG Veritas isn’t exactly textbook. That’s because the setup is forming at the bottom of a downtrend, rather than in the middle of an uptrend – but it’s a mistake to get caught up on the textbook pictures of what trading patterns are supposed to look like. On a move through $26, the trading implications are just as actionable.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Also note that Berkshire Hathaway has direct exposure to the US energy sector through its subsidiary Berkshire Hathaway Energy, which is a power company that also owns two interstate natural gas pipelines. Besides, Berkshire Hathaways stock portfolio also has some exposure to the energy sector. The company owns 80.7 million shares of Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX), a major US-based refiner that is also expanding in the midstream space, valued at almost $7 billion. Phillips 66 represents more than 5% of Berkshire Hathaways stock portfolio. The conglomerate also owns 20 million shares of the pipeline giant Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), valued at $414.2 million. These energy companies are positioned to benefit from Donald Trumps pro-energy policies and de-regulation.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo, Tyler Crowe, and Jason Hall]

    Oil prices haven’t gotten off to the fast start many expected, falling around 6% on average during the first quarter of the year. That slump came despite OPEC’s best efforts since producing nations have achieved fairly good compliance on their planned output cuts. That said, despite the lackluster oil market, we still see some interestingopportunities in the oil market. Three stocks we really like right now are DistributionNOW(NYSE:DNOW),Phillips 66(NYSE:PSX), andConocoPhillips(NYSE:COP), which all should do well in the current oil market.

  • [By Virendra Singh Chauhan]

    Another piece of the Berkshire puzzle which could ride a tailwind is the investment in oil major Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). With OPEC recently making a move to support oil prices with supply cuts, a rising oil price will benefit the oil major which made up just over 5% of Berkshire’s stock holdings at the end of the September quarter. PSX stock price is up 11% over the last one month and could be headed further higher if the demand/supplydynamics of the oil market are brought under control.

    In today’s segment, Joel South talks about an intriguing development from EQT Corp. (NYSE: EQT  ) and Green Field Services, where the companies drilled a multistage fracked natural gas well in the Marcellus shale using 100% field natural gas. Using natural gas from close wells instead ofdieselto power rigs could be another game changer as oil and gas companies continue to increase drilling efficiencies and thereby significantly lower costs.

  • [By Gary Jakacky]

    On the other hand, our economy shows more strength by the day. Oil prices remain stuck in a five year range. Natural gas prices are testing new lows: successful fracking techniques recently announced by EQT Corporation (EQT) in Seeking Alpha (10/17/2013 @ 2:29 PM on Market Currents) could cut over $1.5 billion from the costs of drilling for gas, as well as assuage "environmentalist" concerns about fracking. Fuel is a major cost for transportation companies. So maybe IYT can catch a third breath?

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018

Improving market conditions in Europe, coupled with ongoing efforts by the largest European banks to streamline their business models, have helped these banks consolidate their core common equity tier 1 (CET1) ratio figure over recent quarters. While UBS still has the most comfortable CET1 capital ratio margin of 390 basis points (3.9% points) over its regulatory target for 2019, HSBC now has the highest CET1 ratio figure of 14.3% among major European banks. HSBC’s gains are primarily due to the beneficial regulatory treatment of its minority stake in Hong Kong’s Bank of Communications. Notably, German banking giant Deutsche Bank managed to improve its core capital ratio buffer from just 30 basis points (0.3% points) at the end of Q3 2016 to 110 basis points (1.1% points) now.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Large Caps. Our E&P coverage is pricing in $61/bbl WTI and $3.30 gas, and with a lower crude forecast the group is looking less compelling. We argue names that continue to demonstrate resource improvement at the low-end of the cost curve, namely in the Permian and STACK remain attractive, such as Concho Resources (CXO), Devon Energy (DVN), Newfield Exploration (NFX) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD). Noble (NBL) remains a compelling value, though has yet to commit to an accelerated US onshore drilling program.

  • [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.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Helmerich & Payne, Inc.(HP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Helmerich & Payne, Inc.(NYSE:HP) has an impressive dividend record, particularly when you take into consideration that it operates in the highly cyclical oil and gas services industry. The problem for investors, though, is that a dividend decision a few years ago obscures the income story here. This is one stock where the trend isn’t what it seems, and a little more analysis is needed to understand Helmerich & Payne’s true dividend potential.

    Baker Hughes Incorporated (NYSE: BHI)
    Fairmount Santrol Holdings Inc (NYSE: FMSA)
    Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (NYSE: HP)
    Nabors Industries Ltd. (NYSE: NBR)
    Schlumberger Limited. (NYSE: SLB)
    Halliburton
    Superior Energy Services

    Guggenheim also cut its 2017 oil price forecast from $55 to $48/bbl.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Benzinga's newsdesk monitors options activity to notice unusual patterns. These large volume (and often out of the money) trades were initially published intraday in Benzinga Professional . These trades were placed during Wednesday's regular session.

    Steel stocks are spiking on Monday afternoon, with AK Steel Holding Corporation (NYSE: AKS) up almost 7.5 percent, United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) up about 6.4 percent, Cliffs Natural Resources Inc (NYSE: CLF) up more than 1 percent and Mechel PAO (ADR) (NYSE: MTL) up 16.8 percent. The stocks are not being helped by a few analyst upgrades (although, surely not hurt by them), but seem to be mostly rallying on the back of Donald Trump’s election as president of the United States.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Matador Resources Company(MTDR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ezra Schwarzbaum]

    But despite positioning that would thrash other similar companies, Resolute fought through thanks to significant and efficient productivity in its Delaware Basin assets. Wangler believes the strengthening of previous concern areas will make the company a solid investment.

    Matador Resources Co (NYSE: MTDR), $32 Price Target

    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.

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Statoil ASA(STO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    NORW reflects Norway's oil exposure. The ETF allocates nearly 28.8 percent of its weight to the energy, 870 basis points more than it devotes to its second-largest sector exposure, financial services. State-run Statoil ASA(ADR) (NYSE: STO) is NORW's largest individual holding at a weight of 15.3 percent, or 560 basis points more than NORW allocates to its second-largest holding.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Norway’s Statoil ASA (NYSE: STO) announced this morning that it has acquired stakes in two North Sea projects from France’s Total S.A. (NYSE: TOT). The transaction, valued at $1.45 billion, includes a 51% equity stake in the Martin Linge field and a 40% stake in the Garantiana discovery, both located on Norway’s continental shelf.

    Going forward I will be looking to add investments on my watchlist and trim other positions. It will be interesting to see how an overweight commodity portfolio will perform relative to the rest of the market.

    We believe that the equity market has neutralised much of its underweight energy positioning in 4Q/1Q, but was caught by the sharp rally in crude from end-January. Our base-case sees oil prices still higher by end-2016 (we see >$50/bbl), albeit with a choppy 2Q likely ahead. In this scenario a modest, rather than fully-fledged price-recovery we continue to place a lot of importance on self-help in driving ROE expansion (as opposed to relying simply on oil-leverage). Value-adjusted, we like the self-help stories around Total, Chevron, Statoil (STO), Royal Dutch Shell and Eni (E) in the group. Total is on the Citi European Focus list.
