Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

While the past year has been very up and down for Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) investors, anyone who bought shares of the electric car, solar panel, and energy storage company before April 2017 — or more recently, since April 2018 — has enjoyed market-beating returns. But with a market capitalization above $60 billion at recent prices, investors seem to have already banked heavily that the company will accomplish much bigger ambitions, based on the current valuation. 

And while investors shouldn’t count Elon Musk and Tesla out, it’s never wise to put all your hopes — and money — on a single company. We asked three investors who write for The Motley Fool — one of whom is a Tesla shareholder — for alternative ideas — stocks they think could put Tesla’s future returns to shame. They put together compelling arguments for Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE), Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B), and Codexis, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDXS).

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019: Royal Gold Inc.(RGLD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That’s not exactly great historical company. That also explains why gold fever is spreading among investors again, as it inevitably does when economic conversations turn gloomy. I think it’s better to buy and hold stocks for the long haul, but for those considering buying gold directly, I’d encourage a different strategy. That is, buying the best gold stock instead: streaming company Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD).

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ: RGLD) recently traded at $77.50, with a market cap of $5 billion. Its 52-week range is $76.02 to $98.53. The consensus target price of $96.42 may be $1.00 lower than a month earlier, but it’s actually right where the analyst community was 90 days ago. The analysts are still hoping for 24% upside here.

Read on to see why they think Weibo (NASDAQ:WB), iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ), and Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD) are top stocks for growth-seeking investors.

    When capital markets are in turmoil, gold often performs relatively well as investors seek out safe-haven investments.

    How to invest in gold

    Investment Option Pros Cons Examples
    Jewelry – Easy to acquire – High markups- Questionable resale value – Just about any piece of gold jewelry with sufficient gold content (generally 14k or higher)
    Physical gold – Direct exposure- Tangible ownership – Markups- No upside beyond gold price changes- Storage- Can be difficult to liquidate – Collectible coins- Bullion (noncollectible gold bars and coins)
    Gold certificates – Direct exposure- No need to own physical gold – Only as good as the company that backs them- Only a few companies issue them- Largely illiquid – Perth Mint Certificates
    Gold ETFs – Direct exposure- Highly liquid – Fees- No upside beyond gold price changes – SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEMKT: GLD)
    Futures contracts – Little up-front capital required to control a large amount of gold- Highly liquid – Indirect gold exposure- Highly leveraged- Contracts are time-limited – Futures contracts from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (constantly updating as old contracts expire)
    Gold mining stocks – Upside from mine development- Usually tracks gold prices – Indirect gold exposure- Mine operating risks- Exposure to other commodities – Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX)- Goldcorp (NYSE: GG)- Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM)
    Gold mining-focused mutual funds and ETFs – Diversification- Upside from mine development- Usually tracks gold prices – Indirect gold exposure- Mine operating risks- Exposure to other commodities – Fidelity Select Gold Portfolio (NASDAQMUTFUND: FSAGX)- VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSEMKT: GDX)- VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSEMKT: GDXJ)

    The industry isn’t just mining companies but also gold streaming and royalty companies, which act as middlemen in the sector. Gold streamers like Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV) and Royal Gold (NASDAQ:RGLD) are among the largest players in the industry today.

    After 111 years as a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) has been replaced on the index by Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (NYSE: WBA). According to David Blitzer, managing director and chair of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, the change is part of an effort to increase value and prominence of consumer goods, finance, healthcare, and technology firms on the U.S. economy. GE is the last original member to be removed from the index. Shares of Boeing Co. (NYSE BA), DowDuPont Inc. (NYSE: DOW), and Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) are getting pounded on concerns that a full-blown trade war may accelerate and hurt major exporters to China. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced he may seek tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese goods. Trump has asked U.S. trade representatives to identify potential products on which the United States could implement a 10% tariff. Recent trade volatility has erased all gains in the Dow Jones in 2018. Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) has raised its bid for Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (NYSE: FOXA) assets to $71.3 billion in cash and stock. The new offer tops the $35 all-cash offer proposed last week by cable and telecom giant Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA).
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: MU, ORCL, SBUX
    Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) will lead a light day of earnings reports Wednesday. The Chinese semiconductor giant is expected to report earnings per share (EPS) of $3.14 on top of $7.75 billion in revenue. While markets will be interested in this report, the greater focus will likely center on the impact of U.S. tariffs on the company’s forward guidance. Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL) stock was off 3.7% despite news that the cloud computing giant topped Wall Street earnings expectations yesterday. The firm reported adjusted EPS of $0.99 on top of $11.25 billion in revenue. Those numbers beat average expectations of $0.94 on $11.18 billion. The stock slumped after

Best Bank Stocks To Invest In 2019: Royal Gold Inc.(RGLD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Precious metals streaming and royalty company Royal Gold, Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD) used the commodity downturn to materially increase its production of gold and silver. The increased production, coupled with improving gold prices, led to a massive 56% increase in cash flow between fiscal 2016 and 2017. But higher gold prices have changed the opportunity set and led Royal Gold to focus on preparing for a new growth phase.

    You might assume that Alphabet Inc.(NASDAQ:GOOG), one of the largest internet companies in the world, with dominant positions in search and advertising, gets more productivity out of its employees than most companies. However,Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD), a gold streaming and royalty company, produces 14 times more revenue per employee than does Alphabet. That might sound shocking, but it’s true — Royal Gold trounces Alphabet when it comes to this metric of productivity. But what does that really mean?

    It’s a strong business model that gives Wheaton and its peers, Royal Gold, Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD) and Franco-Nevada Corporation (NYSE:FNV), a leg up on miners, which have to deal with the costs and variability of running mines. However, streaming doesn’t protect Wheaton, Royal Gold, or Franco-Nevada from the impact of commodity price fluctuations. Gold and silver prices will still have an impact on a streamer’s top and bottom lines.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Royal Gold, Inc (NASDAQ:RGLD) (TSE:RGL) announced a quarterly dividend on Wednesday, May 30th, RTT News reports. Investors of record on Friday, July 6th will be paid a dividend of 0.25 per share by the basic materials company on Friday, July 20th. This represents a $1.00 annualized dividend and a yield of 1.11%.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Franco-Nevada Corporation’s (NYSE:FNV) stock was down roughly 11% year to date through the end of May. That’s not great, but it’s even worse when you consider that streaming and royalty peer Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD) is up 9% over the same span. Even silver-heavy Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM) has been doing better, down only about 1% (silver hasn’t performed as well gold in recent years). Why exactly is Franco-Nevada lagging its peers so badly?

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Either low-income Americans became rich this Black Friday, or Wal-Mart’s (NYSE:WMT) marketers do not know what they are doing.

For years, $133,653 Cartier watches and expensive jewelry were sold in upper scale stores, where high income Americans prefer to shop on Black Friday. 

This year, Cartier watches are being sold on the Walmart.com site.

But who will buy them? Will high income Americans trade the upscale store for Wal-Mart’s site? That sounds very unlikely to me. Shopping for luxury items is usually more about the experience of shopping rather than about price.

What about Wal-Mart’s low-income shoppers? That’s unlikely, too, as they cannot afford items that sell at a hefty multiple of their annual income. Besides, some of Wal-Mart’s shoppers do not even use credit cards, so how can they purchase $133,653 watches on-line?

For more than three decades, Wal-Mart ruled the US retailing industry. Its large stores and everyday low prices were too much for smaller neighborhood stores and supermarkets. Result? They went out of business shortly after Wal-Mart invaded their turf.

Yet, the partners agreed that there was hope for the highest of the three doses. Thus, I view this drug as a very high risk Phase 3 product. Maybe it will be successful and blockbuster, but it’s no sure thing.

    Nektar Therapeutics is working with Bayer AG (NASDAQOTH:BAYRY) on an inhaledversion of Amikacin, an anti-bacterial that if successful in trials could be used alongside standard of care to treat gram-negative pneumonia in intubated and mechanically ventilated patients. If it’s eventually approved in the U.S., Nektar Therapeutics will receive a flat 30% royalty on sales. It’s also working with Bayer on an inhaled powder formulation of Cipro that could be used to treat chronic lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. Top-line phase 3 results on both drugs should be available this year.

    The Regeneron press release in November for its Q3 2017 financial and operating results reaffirmed Eylea’s full year 2017 U.S. net product sales growth of approximately 10% over 2016, which could be about $1 billion. From our model, we see the Q4 total revenues for Eylea, excluding sales outside the United States from Regeneron’s collaborative partner Bayer AG (OTCPK:BAYRY), of $1.2 billion, or a 17% increase year-on-year. REGN stock has a forward P/E ratio of 21.83 as of December 8, 2017, while the current trailing P/E is 34.57.

    Core Laboratories N.V. (NYSE: CLB) performed poorly and it is in the oil business. Cramer wouldn’t buy it, because he doesn’t want to recommend a stock in the oil and gas business.

    Core Laboratories (NYSE:CLB) literally has its ear to the ground when it comes to deciphering what’s going on in the oil market. The company studies oil reservoirs, which tell it what’s happening with production, giving it a deep level of understanding on the supply side of the market. Core Labs takes what the reservoirs are saying, compares this with other data, and then blends it into an informed macro view of the oil market, which CEO David Demshur shared on the company’s recent quarterly earnings conference call. Here are five things he says the reservoirs are telling us about what’s really going on in the oil market.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

Sandstorm Gold (NYSEMKT:SAND) is not a typical streaming/royalty company. Apart from running a portfolio of streams and royalties, the company also holds a few equity stakes in mining companies. As a result, it is a little bit hard to value the company’s shares. In this article, using a simple valuation model, I would like to show that Sandstorm’s shares are undervalued now.

Introduction

As I noted above, Sandstorm holds two main asset classes:

Streaming/royalty portfolio Equity portfolio

The first class may be valued using the discount cash flow model. In its financial reports, the company discloses all relevant conditions at which it had entered each stream and royalty agreement as for example: duration, price at which the metals are to be acquired, the amount of metals under agreement, etc.

Having this data, I can easily find the discounted value of each stream and royalty.

As for equities, I have focused on three main equity stakes held by the company. To find their value, I am using two methods:

Advisors’ Opinion:

    OSI Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS) dropped 36% Wednesday to post a new 52-week low of $53.80 after closing at $84.07 on Tuesday. The 52-week high is $96.64. Volume was around 9 million, around 6 times the daily average of about 155,000. Short seller Muddy Waters called OSI “rotten to the core” in a new report this morning.

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    Look out OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSIS), and step aside American Science & Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASEI). You may be the key names in weapons detection and security screening right now, but an up-and-comer called Patriot One Technologies Inc. (CVE:PAT, OTCMKTS:PTOTF) is about to unleash a rival product that turns heads, and steals your customers.

    Weapons detection tools in a world that’s always got terrorism threats lurking around every corner are no laughing matter, though were it any other subject, the results would be laughable. See, as advanced as the x-ray and screening products made by American Science & Engineering and OSI Systems may be, they just don’t work well enough.

    Case in point: A recent internal investigation performed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) found that undercover investigators were able to smuggle fake explosives and weapons through checkpoints in 95% of trials, which they conducted at dozens of America’s busiest airports. What’s the point?

    For the past several years Patriot One Technologies has been working on a technology, called the CMR1000, that changes everything.

    The CMR1000 (‘CMR’ is an short for Cognitive Microwave Radar) is an amazing device. It works not unlike a X-ray machine at an airport, but also not unlike a more conventional metal detector you might find at an airport or at the entryway to a building. In all regards though, it’s better than both. By using high-frequency microwaves that are harmless to humans, the CMR1000 can even pinpoint exactly what kind of metallic weapon it is… a semi-automatic pistol versus a revolver, or a machete versus a pocket knife. Most important, the CMR1000 boasts a (very) high detection-accuracy rate of 93%.

    And it’s almost ready… ready enough to officially unveil this April at the ISC West (International Security Conference) in Las Vegas, and immediately begin taking orders for initial deliveries around the middle of

  • [By Bryan Murphy]

    If shareholders of OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSIS) and American Science & Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASEI) — makers of weapons detection systems — are getting a little nervous, that’s understandable. Never has either company’s share of the market been so threatened. Indeed, an up-and-coming company called Patriot One Technologies Inc. (CVE:PAT, OTCMKTS:PTOTF) fired another volley at American Science & Engineering and OSI Systems, announcing yet-another institution had asked for a real-life demonstration (on their premises) of the brand-new kind of anti-terrorism technology that Patriot One’s been developing for years.

    The CMR1000 (‘CMR’ is an short for Cognitive Microwave Radar) is nothing less than incredible. It works not unlike a X-ray machine at an airport, but also not unlike a more conventional metal detector you might find at an airport or at the entryway to a building. In all regards though, it’s better than both. By using high-frequency microwaves that are harmless to humans, the CMR1000 can even pinpoint exactly what kind of metallic weapon it is… a semi-automatic pistol versus a revolver, or a machete versus a pocket knife.

    This capability overcomes the key shortcoming of most threat-detection apparatus in use today…

    … which doesn’t work very well, by the way. A recent internal investigation performed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) found that undercover investigators were able to smuggle fake explosives and weapons through checkpoints in 95% of trials, which they conducted at dozens of America’s busiest airports.

    Patriot One Technologies is mostly excited about the launch of the CMR1000, however, because it’s not a mere threat-detection tool. Word will quickly spread that it’s a threat-deterrent tool; the easiest way combat violent action is not letting it happen in the first place, and the best way to do that to accurately find and accurately identify what the threat is, right down to
