It may not be seen as a leader in renewable energy, but Colorado has quietly become one of the most ambitious states in the Lower 48 when it comes to modernizing its electric grid. It was the first state to adopt a Renewable Energy Standard for its electricity consumption by referendum. It also has the second-strictest 2020 targets of any state, mandating that investor-owned utilities generate 30% of their power from renewable sources — and that 3% of that must come from distributed generation, such as rooftop solar.

Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL), which owns one of two investor-owned utilities in the state, has already exceeded the 30% target.

It would also double the company’s current total solar capacity.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Tuesday was a calm day on Wall Street, with several major benchmarks posting modest gains while others stayed closer to the unchanged mark. Market participants generally seemed ready to take a pause in trends over the past several days, as crude oil prices bounced back from their recent drop to climb above $65 per barrel while interest rates eased slightly lower. Yet despite a resilient market that largely avoided most downward pressure, some individual stocks weren’t as lucky. Carnival (NYSE:CCL) (NYSE:CUK), Tarena International (NASDAQ:TEDU), and Genesco (NYSE:GCO) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG) provides fertilizers and equipment that individual and commercial operations can use to boost cannabis production, while Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) is a real estate investment trust designed to help cannabis companies find the space they need while meeting all the regulatory requirements surrounding marijuana production facilities.

    Wednesday morning, the real estate shares surged 0.67 percent. Meanwhile, top gainers in the sector included Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (NYSE: IIPR), up 5 percent, and Armada Hoffler Properties, Inc. (NYSE: AHH) up 3 percent.

    Last but not least, marijuana-based real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) actually went the initial public offering route on the NYSE all the way back on Dec. 1, 2016. That makes it the most tenured of all pure-play pot stocks on the NYSE.

    As the industry gains validity, certain marijuana stocks are primed to take advantage. One such company is marijuana real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR).

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Last but not least, there’s marijuana-based real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR).

    An REIT is a company that acquires real estate assets in a particular industry, then leases those assets out for an extended period of time, earning revenue via rental increases amid a relatively fixed-cost model. As for Industrial Innovative Properties, it now has more than a dozen medical marijuana-growing properties in the U.S., each of which was initially leased out for between 15 and 20 years. Annual rental inflation hikes are passed along with each of these lease deals, as well as a 1.5% management fee. Or in other words, it should easily be able to stay ahead of the inflationary curve.

    If you want exposure to the fast-paced marijuana industry without the ups and downs that could come with harvesting the plant, small-cap real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) could be a winner.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch Right Now: Markel Corporation(MKL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Below, three Motley Fool contributors make the case for three different insurers with very different business models: Markel (NYSE:MKL), Chubb (NYSE:CB), and First American Financial (NYSE:FAF).

  • [By Motley Fool Staff and Michael Douglass]

    Douglass: Right. I think that’s one of the key things to keep in mind here as a difference between this and a Markel (NYSE:MKL) or a Berkshire. This is a company that really isn’t necessarily trying to find the next great investments that are going to beat the market. What they’re mostly looking to do is invest in sectors through ETFs.

Accern rates the sentiment of media coverage by monitoring more than twenty million news and blog sources in real-time.

Accern also assigned news articles about the insurance provider an impact score of 45.7080067088456 out of 100, indicating that recent media coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the company’s share price in the immediate future.

Best Heal Care Stocks For 2018

Did the labor market rebound after adding just 98,000 jobs in March?

Thats the question this weeks economic news will answer. Most analystsbelieve job growth resumed its solid pace, but another disappointing showing would raise concerns about the economys health after the anemic first-quarter growth reported by the government on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve isnt expected to raise interest rates at a meeting that concludes Wednesday, but could give clues about a June hike. The week also features data on consumer spending, manufacturing and service-sector activity.

Consumer spending was sluggish in January and February, largely because unusually warm weather crimped demand for utilities. But March was snowier and colder in the Midwest and Northeast, and Nomura economist Lewis Alexander expects a sharp recovery in heating usage. At the same time, a core measure of retail sales picked up smartly as consumers received delayed tax refunds but auto sales continued to drop. Overall, economists expect the Commerce Department to report Monday that consumer spending rose a modest 0.2% in March.

Best Heal Care Stocks For 2018: Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc.(VNDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another biotechnology player that looks poised to trigger a big breakout trade is Vanda Pharmaceuticals (VNDA), which is focused on the development and commercialization of clinical-stage drug candidates for central nervous system disorders. This stock has been on fire so far in 2013, with shares up a whopping 258%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Vanda Pharmaceuticals, you’ll notice that this stock has recently broke out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.34 to $12.66 a share with solid upside volume. So far, this breakout has held and now shares of VNDA are quickly moving within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in VNDA if it manages to break out above its 52-week high at $13.30 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action 908,467 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then VNDA will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $15 to $17 a share.

    Traders can look to buy VNDA off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some near-term support at $12 a share. One could also buy VNDA off strength once it takes out $13.30 a share with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Claiming a stock will deliver a double-digit return every year is a bold statement. After all, the “Siegel constant,” named after Wharton Professor Jeremy Siegel, says the stock market as a whole delivers total returns of around 7% per year after inflation. So, a stock that delivered a double-digit return every year would be one that consistently beat the market.

    The stock market once again proved its resiliency on Wednesday, bouncing back from extensive declines early in the session to recover most of its losses. The Dow Jones Industrials actually managed to post yet another record close with a modest gain, and although other major market benchmarks suffered declines, they weren’t significant.

Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL), Lantheus Holdings (NASDAQ:LNTH), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NASDAQ:NCLH) were among the top performers on the day.

Hot China Stocks For 2018

Michael A. Robinson

On Tuesday, we talked about a “Trump-proof” way to play China’s exploding social media and e-commerce markets.

I told you I would follow up soon with another tech-based “frontier” investment.

Today I’m keeping that promise.

With 1.3 billion residents, India is the globe’s second-most-populous nation. And it could surpass China in as little as five years.

India logged GDP growth of 7% in last year’s fourth quarter. That beat forecasts by 10%. Even if that were to slow by as much as 20%, India’s economy would still be expanding twice as fast as that of the United States.

In just the past decade, India’s $2.2 trillion economy has leaped past Italy, Brazil, Canada, South Korea, and Russia. That means it’s now the globe’s seventh-largest economy – and it could move up to fifth place by 2020.

Hot China Stocks For 2018: Medtronic plc(MDT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    US sequential acceleration returns to the prior curve and debunks the bear case. Sequential growth in US [transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR,] in 1Q17 was ~12%, more in line with the ~13.5% average growth rate seen in the five quarters leading up to 3Q16. It’s hard to pinpoint the drivers, but we see several dynamics, including: (i) underlying device utilization thus far in 1Q, (ii) faster ramp at new hospitals where one additional TAVR per center is worth $15mn (~65% of the US upside we saw this quarter), and (iii) less acute competitive pressure from Medtronic (MDT) on larger valve sizes. SURTAVI likely played a limited role but management did not rule it out. Guidance implies a more conservative q/q US growth of ~3% for the rest of the year vs the ~12% this quarter, but underlying strength in the quarter is a material shift in US growth and intermediate penetration. As we stated in our preview, we favored the risk reward into the quarter given achievable expectations and the >20 point lag vs Intuitive YTD and would expect significant recovery tomorrow. Momentum likely continues into 2Q17 as signs of improving intermediate risk penetration provide important offsets to increased competition from Boston in early-2018 before mitral takes hold.

    When an investor thinks of stocks in the cardio-monitoring arena, names like General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) and Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) tend to surface first. And well they should. Medtronic is the largest name dedicated solely to equipment that tells doctors and nurses how well a patient’s heart is functioning, while GE Healthcare smartly leverages the name of its parent company’s recognizable name to win market share in the medical equipment space.

    General Electric and Medtronic aren’t the only names in town, however, and certainly not the top prospects for an investor seeking out a fresh, undiscovered growth opportunity. That honor arguably belongs to an up-and-coming small cap outfit called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY), which is nearing its first-ever revenue.

    Don’t look for a Biotricity product quite yet, as they’re not on the market. Consumers as well as investors will want to keep their eyes and ears open for two of them soon though, however, with one of those devices being a high-precision, FDA-approved instrument for use by healthcare workers in a clinical setting. The other device is a consumer-oriented version of the same technology, giving BTCY access to not just one but two crucial markets. Even more recently Biotricity reported it was opening up its development pipeline to the fetal monitoring and sleep apnea markets. Heart-monitoring is the near-term venture, though.

    The two products are called biotricity and biolife (neither moniker is supposed to be capitalized). The latter is a wireless, remote consumer-oriented heart rate and activity monitoring device, and the former is a clinical-grade monitoring device… also wireless and remotely operated/monitored.

    Bioflux is only available by prescription. The bioflux hardware includes an ECG (heart-rhythm) monitoring device, software, and if desired, service from a monitoring lab that performs remote diagnostic monitoring for up to 30 consecutive days at a time. It
