Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    All good things must come to an end, and for all but the last 10 minutes ofFriday’s market, it looked like today would be the day thatthe Dow Jones Industrials would finally break its streak of record highs. Yet a last-minute boost sent all three major market benchmarks into the black, and in the absence of news moving the market to finish the week, positive market sentiment was enough to keep stocks climbing. Yet some stocks still posted dramatic declines, and Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), Zoe’s Kitchen (NYSE:ZOES), and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    After a rally for the ages, the price of oil is back over $50. But the biggest threat to oil might be more production from exploration & production companies drilling in the U.S. shale, say Credit Suisse analyst Mark Lear and team, who cut their ratings on Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO), Laredo Petroleum (LPI) and Sanchez Energy (SN).

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation(APC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brett Hershman]

    Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) said the company is sticking to its plan and will increase spending to stem regional declines, with its pace of growth acceleration still to be determined. The company also said it is still evaluating asset sales but is not currently looking to sell anything for the sake of selling.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That said, while ConocoPhillips has certainly drilled its share of dry holes, it has also had some notable successes. It made two discoveries offshore Senegal, which it subsequently sold for $440 million last fall. In addition to that, the company is a partner in the Shenandoah discovery by Anadarko (NYSE:APC). According to Anadarko, this could be one of its largest discoveries in the Gulf. While Anadarko has already started initial work on a development design, it appears likely that ConocoPhillips will eventually sell its Gulf assets, including this discovery.

    Anadarko Petroleum Co. (NYSE: APC) dropped about 2% Tuesday to post a new 52-week low of $44.03 after closing at $44.92 on Monday. The stock’s 52-week high is $77.33. Volume of about 6.4 million was about 30% above the daily average of 5.2 million. The company had no specific news.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.

    While crude prices stumbled into 2016, they found their footing by mid-year and roared back to life, ending the year up about 42%. Those rising prices lifted most oil stocks.

Those top-tier performers wereContinental Resources (NYSE:CLR), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD), and Cimarex Energy (NYSE:XEC):

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018

In a note released on Friday, KBW’s Meyer Shields and Christopher Campbell try to estimate the damage that the Brexit selloff has done to the book value of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A):

Reuters

Britain voted to exit the European Union driving markets significantly lower, with the Nikkei (-7.9%), DAX (-7.2%), CAC (-8.7%), FTSE 100 (-4.2%), and S&P 500 Futures (currently down 3.5%) all down. Beyond the impact on its equity portfolio, we expect to see a negative book value impact of $798 million ($169/share) if current conditions persist..

Berkshire historically wrote equity put options on major international and domestic indices. Based on our analysis of quarterly changes in major indices versus its derivative gains/losses, we estimate that Berkshires equity options are positively correlated with changes in the SPX, Nikkei, and Euro Stoxx 50, while (apparently) negatively correlated with movements in the FTSE 100…

Hot Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Orocobre Limited (OROCF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    The question now is more about speed of EV implementation. On the supply side, it has been great to see LAC, Pilbara Minerals (OTCPK:PILBF) and Altura Mining (OTCPK:ALTAF) get funding, but the continued issues with Albemarle’s (NYSE:ALB) LaNegra II expansion and Orocobre (OTCPK:OROCF) ramping up to Phase 1 capacity of 17,500 tonnes/year of lithium carbonate are further evidence that lithium projects take time and have considerable execution risk.

Top Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018: Phillips 66 Partners LP(PSXP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE: PSXP) was raised to Buy from Neutral with a $60 price target at Goldman Sachs on December 18. The units were last seen trading at $51.23, and the 5% yield would represent a total return of over 22% if the firm is correct. The 52-week range is $44.40 to $58.00, and the consensus price target is $59.43.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While the company continues to invest in midstream projects on its balance sheet, however, Garland reiterated that its MLP,Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP), remains an important part of our midstream growth strategy.” Garland reaffirmed the expectation that Phillips 66 Partners will “reach its growth goal of $1.1 billion in run-rate EBITDA by the end of 2018.” That will require completing additional dropdown transactions between the two companies as well as the pursuit of new organic growth projects at the MLP.

  • [By Dustin Parrett]

    In 2016, PAA partnered with Phillips 66 Partners LP (NYSE: PSXP) to build a $15 million pipeline expansion between Oklahoma and Canada. The new pipeline adds capacity for 100,000 more barrels of oil a day.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The other highlight this quarter was the midstream business. That segment benefited from a full quarter of Phillips 66’s recently completed Freeport LPG Export Terminal as well as a turnaround in results at DCP Midstream (NYSE:DCP). After causing the company to record a loss on its investment last quarter, the DCP Midstream investment was back in the green this quarter, benefiting from hedging and lower costs. Meanwhile, the company’s other MLP investment, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP), delivered another steady quarter thanks to that entity’s focus on owning stable fee-based assets.

Top Energy Stocks For 2018

Energy Recovery (ERII) has a lot of recovering stockholders getting over their past disappointments with missed deadlines. Well, here we go again:

Currently, all aspects of the second generation system are in manufacturing and we expect to take receipt of the final system in early September. We will spend the entirety of that month commissioning the unit and therefore expect to initiate full-scale, private testing in October, where we endeavor to execute a test in which we achieve the key performance indicators required under milestone one of the VorTeq licensing agreement. Assuming we are successful here, we would then proceed immediately into the milestone testing process. Our best estimate therefore is to achieve milestone one in the fourth quarter.

Of course, we have been here before. What makes this time better than any other is anyone’s guess. Plus finishing the design process of two products at the same time could really strain management resources. Still, there is now an approximate deadline to know the success or failure of the latest version of Vorteq. MTeq is in a similar situation. Management must have learned something from the past attempts as the language above is a little more careful.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.KIPLINGER.COM]

    Refiners and downstream energy stocks have really gone to town as oil prices have listed lower in a relatively tight range. Phillips 66 (PSX) is among those winners.

    “As a technician, I see largely rangebound motion with big bounces being retraced and fades being bought at deep support,” she added. “As the markets opened, holding over $48.12 will likely spell a bullish run as several refineries are closed in the region, such as Phillips66 (PSX) , Shell Petrobras and Exxon (XOM) . The support tests that hold $47.3 will be buy zones more than likely. Overall, the current remains the same – a largely landlocked region with only temporary moves up or down until the rebalancing looks better.”
