&l;p class=&q;tweet_line&q;&g;More than half a million jobs around the world were created in the renewable energy sector in 2017 , bringing the total number of people employed in the sector to more than 10 million for the first time.

Figures from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) show that more than 70% of clean energy jobs are in just six countries &a;ndash; China, Brazil, the US, India, Germany and Japan &a;ndash; suggesting the sector has significant scope to continue growing in years to come.

IRENA&a;rsquo;s fifth &l;em&g;Renewable Energy and Jobs &a;ndash; Annual Review&l;/em&g; showed that the sector employs 10.3 million workers, with 60% of jobs in Asia. &a;ldquo;Although growing numbers of countries are reaping the socio-economic benefits of renewables, the bulk of manufacturing takes place in relatively few countries and domestic markets vary enormously in size,&a;rdquo; IRENA said.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Wynn Resorts, Limited(WYNN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    This top company saw the departure of its namesake founder earlier this year. Wynn Resorts Ltd. (NASDAQ: WYNN) operates Wynn Macau and Encore at Wynn Macau resort located in the People’s Republic of China.

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Yet not all casinos will benefit equally. Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), for example, derive most of their revenues from operations in Macau. Sands earns 60% there; Wynn, 73%. They could certainly expand their sports books beyond their Vegas operations, but they have so few casinos elsewhere (and Wynn’s Boston Harbor isn’t even completed), it’s only going to be a tiny portion of their overall revenues.

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Encore Boston Harbor, Wynn Resorts, Limited’s (NASDAQ:WYNN) $2.5 billion resort under construction near downtown Boston, may be up for sale — again — as gaming regulators mull whether the company will keep its gaming license in the state. Regulators have been concerned about Wynn’s corporate governance since allegations of sexual misconduct against founder Steve Wynn came to light earlier this year.

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) has been on a growth tear since opening Wynn Palace in Macau two years ago, but that’s not the end of the company’s ambitions. There’s room to expand in existing markets like Las Vegas and Macau, and new markets to conquer like Boston and Japan. 

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    The future of Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) could be in doubt as The New York Post reported MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM) may be interested in buying its rival. Although MGM CEO Jim Murren previously said his resort was unlikely to make a play, the resignation of founder Steve Wynn and the sale of all of his stock in the casino giant now makes a takeover bid more palatable.

    By now, most investors are familiar with the FAANG group of tech stocks that have driven much of the market’s growth in recent years. The success of stocks like Facebook and Amazon show that investing can be as easy as buying shares in companies whose products you use everyday, but there are also stocks that are flying under the radar that you should get to know. These offer investors the opportunity for even bigger returns since smaller-cap stocks have a greater potential for growth. In-the-know investors are catching on to some of these names.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Starbucks Corporation(SBUX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) needs to be restructured, refined and refocused. The management decision to reorganize the coffee company will come with large layoffs. Company CEO and president, Kevin Johnson, will not be among those who will depart. However, many Starbucks problems have occurred over the course of his tenure, and last year he was paid $11.5 million for his leadership.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Barker: Yeah, it’s a little jarring, “McDonald’s restaurants,” because I guess the image I have, in my head at least, of a restaurant is a little bit more of a sit-down experience than the counter experience. This is not a shot at McDonald’s, although we could go in that direction if you have a good line or something, but I feel the same way about Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) also included in the restaurant category.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) continues to face headwinds as investors and consumers see a maturing brand that is finding limited options for organic growth. After the close on Tuesday, Starbucks announced that the company was raising its target for cash returned to shareholders to $25 billion through fiscal year 2020, and that includes a 20% increase in the company’s common stock dividend. Unfortunately, Starbucks also lowered its internal growth metrics and its shares were lower as a result.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) was started as Neutral at Wedbush and assigned a $58 price target (versus a $57.68 close). The firm no longer sees risks to fiscal 2019 expectations and long-term management targets. The firm also does not expect near-term drivers of positive revisions to materialize.

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019

Biotech stocks trading under $5 a share may seem like more trouble than they’re worth. Low-priced biotechs, after all, are often victims of serious clinical or regulatory setbacks that cast doubt on their long-term viability. 

Over the past few years, however, several beaten-down biotech stocks have ended up producing enormous gains for risk-tolerant investors. For example, Acadia Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ACAD), Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), and Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:DVAX) were all once so-called “penny stocks” that went on to rebound nicely once their lead clinical candidates made it successfully onto the market.

Image Source: Getty Images.

The unifying theme here is that Acadia, Exelixis, and Dynavax each had their fair share of skeptics that caused their share prices to trade at bargain-basement levels once upon a time. When the worm turned, however, all three of these biotechs rose sharply in the blink of an eye.

Best Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019: Starbucks Corporation(SBUX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    To me, this last point is the most cogent reason for shareholders to be patient while the company works through a quarter or two of lower comps due to its menu initiative. If you buy Dunkin’s’ brand positioning, you already understand that it’s differentiating itself from rival Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), which wants customers to perceive it as a “third place,” i.e., a social destination outside home or work.

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    That compares unfavorably with other restaurant stocks, including McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) at 22 and Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) at 27.8. Investors have given Chipotle such a high valuation because they still believe that its earnings are suppressed from the aftermath of the foodborne illness situations. However, even if Chipotle’s profits were as high as they were at its peak, at $16.77 in the last four quarters before the E. coli crisis began, the stock would still be overvalued next to its peers, trading at a P/E of 35.8.

    “These days, anything with a China input of any sort is pretty much too dangerous to own,” Cramer said. “It doesn’t matter if we sell it in China or if we import it from China — any Chinese [exposure] is a simple negative because of the tit-for-tat” reactions in any U.S.-Chinese trade dispute. “The only problem is that our president has to deal with the rule of law. … The Chinese government can order a boycott on everything from the iPhone to Starbucks (SBUX) to KFC, but the president has not been similarly inclined on our end.”

    Shares of Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) fell below the $50 mark on Wednesday afternoon, heading even lower on Thursday morning after announcing that its CFO was leaving the company. If you can’t recall the last time Starbucks traded this low, you’re not alone. You have to go back three summers — to August 2015 — to find the last time the stock traded lower.

    While Coke touts the acquisition as a move into the market for hot beverages, it may be the company’s play to gain a toehold in the European market, where it starts in a virtual tie with Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX). Globally, however, Starbucks has more than 27,000 stores. Costa has no stores in the United States.

    Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) leads tech headlines Wednesday as the company will unveil the third iteration of its Pixel smartphone, its first tablet computer, and the Google Home smart speaker. The race into the tablet space takes direct aim at rival Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Shares of GOOGL were flat in pre-market hours.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
    Following the U.S. tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods, the economic rival hit back. China returned with its own list of American products totaling $34 billion, including soybeans, pork, and electric vehicles. Many analysts anticipate that the conflict will continue to escalate. Tariffs on another $16 billion in Chinese goods are expected to go into effect in a few weeks. U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on another $500 billion in Chinese goods should there be further retaliation. This morning, the U.S. Labor Department announced that the nation’s unemployment rate increased to 4%. The U.S. economy added 213,000 new jobs in June, a figure that topped expectations. The report also showed a 2.7% uptick in hourly earnings year over year. The report indicates a tightening U.S. market that continues to face shortages of talent. There are currently more open position in the United States than people looking for work. Shares of CVS Health Corp. (NYSE: CVS) have slumped nearly 7.9% over the last week thanks to the Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) takeover of online pharmacy PillPack last week.

    Yet even if S&P had honed in on healthcare as a sector it wanted to emphasize further, some will question why Walgreens got the nod. CVS Health (NYSE:CVS) has nearly as large a drugstore chain network as Walgreens does, and in many ways, CVS has been more aggressive in pursuing acquisitions that have tapped into the high-growth potential from pharmacy benefit management. The company’s planned merger with health insurer Aetna will boost CVS’s size even further if approved, and even without it, CVS’s market capitalization was higher than Walgreens before the announcement.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

What happened 

Shares of natural gas fuel company Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) fell as much as 17.8% in trading Thursday, ending the day down 15.5% as an analyst gave a negative review of the stock. But keep in mind that shares are still up 54.2% year to date, so this has been a winner of late for investors. 

So what

Today’s move was driven by Raymond James analyst Pavel Molchanov, who cut his rating from market perform to underperform. Excitement about the equity investment Total made in the company earlier this year was cited as a reason shares have surged, but Molchanov thinks shares have gone up too high too fast.

Shares of Clean Energy Fuels have been very volatile this year, but they’ve been rising on news like the Total investment and rising oil prices. On the flip side, the company has actually been shrinking, and losses have been growing over the past year, so fundamentals haven’t caught up to investor bullishness at the moment.
