Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

Freshman Congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and veteran lawmaker Sen. Edward Markey are introducing a resolution spelling out congressional support for a Green New Deal — an ambitious plan to remake the U.S. economy and drastically reduce the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The resolution largely sticks to a blueprint Ocasio-Cortez laid out when she proposed creating a House select committee to establish a Green New Deal. That framework called for generating 100 percent of the nation’s power from renewable sources, making all buildings energy efficient and eliminating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector and industry — all within about 10 years.

The plan also proposes massive investments in research and development to make the U.S. a leader in clean energy technology. In addition, the Green New Deal envisioned by Ocasio-Cortez aims to implement progressive policies such as a federal jobs guarantee, basic income and universal health care.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Xcel Energy Inc.(XEL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    The rise of wind power wouldn’t have been possible without two companies in particular, which combine to own 20.7 gigawatts of wind capacity, or about 24% of the country’s total. Investors wouldn’t be surprised to learn that clean energy provider NextEra Energy is one of the renewable energy stocks most important to American wind power. However, the relatively unheard of natural gas and electric utility Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) doesn’t seem to garner nearly the same level of attention. Overlooking it could be a mistake.

    Renewable energy sources like solar and wind power are growing fast, gaining market share in the world’s energy markets. Companies that focus just on renewable power are easy to find, but they aren’t the only way to gain exposure to this trend. In fact, we are also a long way from a world powered solely by renewables, with current power options deeply entrenched and supported by years of strong demand ahead of them. This will provide existing energy suppliers ample room to shift with the times. Which is why it shouldn’t be too surprising to find out that old-school energy companies like NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NEE), Xcel Energy Inc. (NASDAQ:XEL), and The AES Corporation (NYSE:AES) are quickly bringing renewables into their businesses.

stock trading forum: Discover Financial Services(DFS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Cochrane]

    While a new year has been ushered in, it is clear PayPal’s philosophy has not changed. Last week, PayPal entered into another major agreement, this time with credit card issuerDiscover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS).

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We get the bull case.American Express is a blue-chip Dow component with an iconic global brand. It generates >30% returns on tangible, but it is trading well below its historical multiple and has underperformed post the election. Costco is now in the rearview mirror, and the string of negative surprises that have weighed on the stock are now poised to abate and position the company to start surprising positively. With Capital One Financial (COF), Discover Financial Services (DFS), and Synchrony Financial (SYF) all trading near their historical peaks, some have concluded thatAmerican Express is headed back to its historical high above $90. While this thought process may sound logical, we believe it only works in a world where generalists are steering the ship, and view it as highly susceptible to unraveling when negative revisions hit. American Express is not the business it once was, it doesnt have the same earnings power, and, in our view, it doesnt deserve to trade near its historical valuation.

  • [By JACK HOUGH]

    Like CVS, Discover has trounced the broad market over the long term but sold off recently. It’s down more than 15% this year. Costs rose early in the year in part due to one-time expenses related to anti-money-laundering efforts and other regulatory concerns. Analysts predict an offsetting decline in expenses next year. Don’t confuse Discover with a company that’s primarily in the business of running a credit-card network, like Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). It’s basically a credit-card lender, like Capital One Financial (COF), that runs its own network to gain a competitive advantage.

    By saving on network fees, Discover can offer attractive card rewards, including a popular cash-back program. Any card lender can offer cash back, of course, but being too aggressive risks hurting margins. Discover has grown its portfolio of credit-card loans much faster than big banks have in recent years. And it has done so with industry-leading returns on capital. Rising growth could be on the way. Early this year, Discover went on a marketing spree. Last quarter, it reported its best card growth since 2007. Historically, new-card growth and loan growth have been closely correlated. In a November note to investors, Morgan Stanley analyst Cheryl Pate predicted accelerating loan growth within six months. Meanwhile, defaults remain low. Shares sell for less than 10 times projected earnings for the next four quarters, down from 12 times at the end of last year. They could rise 20% on a combination of earnings growth and a valuation rebound. The dividend yield is 2%.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018

As the end of the year nears, companies will start to report their end of the year numbers giving investors the opportunity to find value for their portfolios in 2017. Earlier this week, Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ:NDSN) released its numbers for the fourth quarter of its 2016 fiscal year. The machinery company, with market capitalization of just under $6.00 billion, specializes in a variety of manufacturing technologies across its segments, Adhesive Dispensing Systems, Advanced Technology Systems, and Industrial Coating Systems. After its fourth quarter earnings report, NDSN may have proven that it has the right value for a long-term play in an overbought market.

According to prices on December 14th, NDSN is up almost 80 percent year to date compared to the S&P 500 ETF’s (NYSEARCA:SPY) gain of about 14 percent. The stock has made a bullish run off of three solid earnings reports earlier in 2016, each boosting share prices by about 10 percent. As a mid-cap stock, it’s proven to be a more worthy growth stock as well, outperforming the S&P Mid-cap 400 which has grown by just over 20 percent this year. Currently, the stock is trading at all-time highs caused by bullish momentum from the so called “Trump Rally.” Another rally spurred by the recent earnings numbers could push NDSN even higher as investors opt for a position in the machinery company. How solid is this company? And do the fundamentals justify the technical strength the stock is showing?

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018: Siebert Financial Corp.(SIEB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    On Tuesday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting small cap discount brokerageSiebert Financial Corp (NASDAQ: SIEB):

    Siebert Financial has been on our watchlist for a while, overbought and toying with the idea of a pullback. We’re finally starting to see evidence that the weight of the gain is taking a toll. We’ve seen a string of lower highs following the last bullish gasp from the 9th. We’re going to assume that was the pivot point. (It has been so far, anyway.)

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018: Nestl茅 S.A. (NSRGF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    In sum, the three companies are equally valued at generous multiples. It is difficult to choose one of them based on fundamentals or valuations, but we like the strategy of Nestl茅 and P&G more than Unilever. Therefore, we recommend investing in these companies only if someone is interested in a limited but relatively safe upside potential. Good entry prices would be as follows: Nestl茅 (OTCPK:NSRGF) at CHF 70.1 or $70.1 for the ADR , P&G at $83.6 and Unilever (OTC:UNLVF) at 34.1 or $38 for the ADR (NYSE:UN).

    Sohu.com Inc. (SOHU), which sold a stake in its search unit to Tencent Holdings Ltd. (700), advanced 11 percent for the week to $72.06. It retreated 5.9 percent Sept. 20. Tencent, Chinas biggest Internet company by market value, paid $448 million for a 36.5 percent stake in Sohus Sogou unit last week and merge its own search service with Sogou.

    Shares in Sohu.com (SOHU) continued their rapid rise, hitting yet another fresh 52-week high during the session, as the company announced the special dividend from Sohou yesterday (press release located here). Sohu.com will receive nearly $161.2 million in the transaction which is part of the overall $400 million deal with Tencent (TCEHY.PK) which was announced not too long ago. These are exciting times in the internet space as we move from computers to mobile devices, but China’s internet landscape looks like the ‘Wild West’ right now and we expect to see further deals as companies jockey for position in their respective niches and consolidation begins as the larger players look to step up growth and gain exposure to new business segments.

    Sogou is Baidu’s biggest rival when it comes to mobile search engine market share. The app is owned by Sohu.com Inc (NASDAQ: SOHU), and its position as second fiddle to Baidu makes it most similar to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT)’s Bing.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Sohu.com (SOHU) is a Chinese online media, search, gaming, community and mobile service group. This stock closed up 7.5% to $69.61 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 4.90 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 1.01 million

    Volume % Change: 351%

    From a technical perspective, SOHU ripped sharply higher here with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of SOHU into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $67.80. Shares of SOHU are now quickly moving within range of triggering another breakout trade. That trade will hit if SOHU manages to take out Monday’s high of $69.71 to its 52-week high at $70.63 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SOHU as long as it’s trending above Monday’s low of $66.95 or above that first breakout level of $67.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.01 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SOHU will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $75 to $80.

    Getty Images

    Flir Systems gained $2.78, or 8.1%, to close at $36.93.

    The company’sdisappointing fourth-quarter earnings report was forgotten when it announced that the U.S. Coast Guard awarded it a $50 million contract. Flir will provide marine electronics systems for more than 2,000 Coast Guard vessels for its Scalable Integrated Navigation Systems 2 (SINS-2) program over a five-year period, with the option for extended delivery for an additional five years.

    Even before the news, Imperial Capital’sEd Mally was bullish on the stock’s prospects, who raised his price target on the stock by $2, to $38:

    Although we believe that some may still consider Flir as just a premier provider of very high-end cameras in the bellies of Bell Helicopters or border towers in a lumpy government sector, this 35-year-old company is a global leader in thousands of infrared detector cores and thermography equipment markets and also provides lower priced products to commercial and consumer security customers as well as other customers.

    Flir is up 2% so far this year.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Watch For 2018: GlaxoSmithKline PLC(GSK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    There are several choices for investing in HIV drug stocks. Three of the best options for long-term investors are Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK), and Merck (NYSE:MRK). Here’s why these HIV drug stocks could be solid picks in 2017.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Third, in late March, Mylan announced that the Food and Drug Administration had rejected its application to market a generic version of GlaxoSmithKline’s (NYSE:GSK) blockbuster asthma and COPD inhalable drug, Advair. GlaxoSmithKline’s Advair lost patent protection more than six years ago, but only within the past couple of years did the FDA lay out a course for generic drug producers to follow in order to get a generic version of the drug approved. Meanwhile, Glaxo still enjoys blockbuster sales of Advair as generic versions of the drug have yet to hit the market.

Whirlpool (WHR) CEO Jeff Fettig cheered strong U.S. demand for appliances, despite challenges overseas, in an interview with Barron’s after the company’s second quarter earnings report on Friday. The company posted operating profits of $3.50 per share in the second quarter, against expectations of $3.36, and raised the bottom end of its 2016 earnings guidance.

Associated Press

“In the first half of the year we’re completely on track,” Fettig said, noting that profits hit a record. “That gives us full confidence for the full-year forecast.”

North American margins rose to 12.3%, the company’s best result ever. And while unit shipment growth decelerated in the U.S., the company says it’s on track for 5 to 6% unit volume growth for the year. Growth in home sales and remodeling has helped the company, though Fettig expects consumer confidence could “be subdued during the political season.”

I will cut right to it today…   The last time we saw this setup, emerging market stocks soared 400%, crushing the returns on U.S. stocks.   Now, we're seeing this setup again. And I expect history will repeat – and emerging market stocks will dramatically outperform U.S. stocks in the next few years.   Let me explain what's going on…   Emerging market stocks have massively underperformed U.S. stocks – for a very long time…   Stocks in the U.S. have soared in the last seven years. Meanwhile, stocks in emerging markets have literally gone nowhere.   Look at the chart below, and you'll see what I mean:  
In seven years, U.S. stocks have more than doubled… while emerging markets stayed flat.

    The latest implied forward rate forecast from Kamakura Corporation shows projected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields differing -0.07% to 0.03% from last week while fixed rate mortgage yields varied by -0.01% to 0.08%. Mortgage yields, determined by the Monday through Wednesday weekly survey of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, lag Treasury movements simply because of the 3-day yield calculation used in the Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is projected to rise from 2.92% at Thursday’s close (down 0.06% from last week) to 3.374% (down 0.06% from last week) in one year. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield in ten years is forecast to reach 4.639%, 1 basis point lower than last week. The 15-year fixed rate mortgage rate is forecast to rise from the effective yield of 3.69% on Thursday (down 0.001% from last week) to 4.222% (down 0.006% from last week) in one year and 6.29% in 10 years, up 0.038% from last week. We explain the background for these calculations in the rest of this note, along with some mortgage servicing rights metrics. The forecast allows investors in exchange traded U.S. Treasury funds (TLT) (TBT), total return bond funds (BOND), municipal bonds (NUV) and exchange traded mortgage funds (REM) to assess likely total returns over the next 120 months. Treasury-related exchange traded funds affected by the forward rates include:
