Top Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

Natural gas for transportation leader Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) has steadily grown and improved the quality of its business and business results over the past several years. Today’s Clean Energy Fuels is leaner, has a stronger balance sheet, and is in a solid position as a market leader in a growth industry. 

But is the stock undervalued? By one metric, book value per share, it looks downright cheap. But management used a massive amount of stock to make ends meet over the past 18 months, destroying a significant amount of shareholder value in the process. Still, the loss of an important tax credit will have multimillion-dollar implications, and the sale of a very profitable part of the business raises questions about the company’s ability to generate positive cash flows this year.

Best Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

Though student debt is often a necessary means to a degree, its impact can extend well beyond one’s college years. These days, a growing number of would-be homeowners are delaying that milestone because of their outstanding debt, while many workers are putting off retirement savings because their loan payments monopolize too much of their income.

But a new report from AARP contains some even more disturbing news: A frightening 16% of borrowers claim that student debt has prevented or delayed them from getting the medical care they require. This holds true for 17% of indebted millennials, 16% of Gen Xers, and 9% of baby boomers.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    Finally, investors will continue to monitor ongoing developments in Washington around the presidency of Donald Trump. The White House has asked a federal judge to block prosecutors from reviewing any files seized from his lawyer’s office during a raid by the FBI last week. The agency seized a trove of documents from lawyer Michael Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into a payment of hush money. The spat between the White House and the FBI continues a day after former FBI Director James Comey called Trump “morally unfit to be president.”

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Watch For 2018

Squeezed by ever-expanding U.S. sanctions, Vladimir Putin says he wants to dump the dollar. His central bank has been doing just the opposite.

In comments to lawmakers on Tuesday after his inauguration for a record fourth term as president, Putin said a “break” from the U.S. currency is necessary to bolster Russia’s “economic sovereignty,” especially in light of recent penalties and what he called politically motivated restrictions on trade.

“The whole world can see that the dollar’s monopoly is precarious and dangerous for many,” he said. “Our gold and currency reserves are being diversified, and we’ll continue to do that further.”

The numbers tell a different story. According to the central bank’s latest data, the dollar’s share in its international reserves climbed to nearly 46 percent in 2017 from just over 40 percent the previous year. Meanwhile, the euro accounted for almost 22 percent, sliding from more than 32 percent in 2016 and as high as 43.8 percent in 2009. The stockpile was at $459.9 billion in April, the highest since 2014.

Top 5 Gold Stocks To Watch For 2018: Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc.(RH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    While much has been said about upscale furniture retailer RH’s (NYSE:RH) soaring stock price recently, less attention has been paid to the story behind the company’s radical overhaul.CEO Gary Friedman is making some intriguing contrarian bets for RH, pursuing experiential stores in an industry that’s downsizing its bricks-and-mortar footprint. Meanwhile, Friedman’s embracing a membership model, physical catalogs, and a premium market at a time when most everyone else is slashing costs, running promotions, and scrambling to move online.In the company’s most recent conference call, Friedman shared his thoughts on the company’s business model, the retail industry’s herd mentality, and the habits and desires of furniture shoppers. Here are the three takeaways I found most interesting:

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    On the surface, upscale furniture retailer RH(NYSE:RH) seems to be doing a lot of things right. The company — formerly known as Restoration Hardware — has leaned into the upscale market, thereby differentiating its products from the competition. Its inspired storefronts are a far cry from cookie-cutter shopping malls, and a membership-based business model makes it less reliant on blowout sales.

  • [By Isaac Pino, CPA]

    More and more companies are embracing this model, including upscale furnishings retailer RH(NYSE:RH). RH charges $100 for members to receive a 25% discount on regular-price items and a handful of other unique perks. It’s simple, and customers may find it pays for itself quickly given the sticker price of RH’s products. Perhaps that’s why customers have embraced it: RH recently noted after only two years, 95% of its core business stems from its members.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

Concerns about rising interest rates have been around for a year now, but only recently have rate increases from the Federal Reserve on the short-term end of the yield curve actually started to have a substantial upward impact on longer-term fixed mortgage rates.
