As we’ve been saying for years, green energy isn’t just responsible: It’s highly profitable.

You can certainly reap those rewards by buying shares in a solar stock or a high-profile electric car company like Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA).

But there’s one stock you haven’t thought of that’s poised to bring in huge, reliable gains from the clean energy revolution.

This is a company that’s a leading provider of specialized electric vehicles. It serves a market with 590,000 fleet vehicles, which transport 26 million Americans and Canadians every day.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Scana Corporation(SCG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP®, Neha Chamaria, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Granted, Dominion Energy’s payout of around 70% is at the higher end, but it shouldn’t be tough for the utility to maintain dividends given the highly regulated nature of its revenue. Of late, the market has been concerned about a couple of developments, including Dominion’s impending acquisition of SCANA Corp. (NYSE: SCG) and its planned funding route that is now in the reworks because of regulatory changes.

    If you’re like me, you love dividend stocks, particularly ones with high yields. However, you have to look past the yield when you weigh an investment, because all dividends are not created equal. Today, for example, utility SCANA Corp. (NYSE:SCG) and bookseller Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE:BKS) both offer hefty payouts, but neither should be added to your portfolio.

    I think of Magento as one the many “stealth” companies out there.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCB) announced its quarterly earnings results on Tuesday. The company reported $0.53 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $0.40 by $0.13, Morningstar.com reports. Discovery had a negative net margin of 7.40% and a positive return on equity of 19.34%. The company had revenue of $2.31 billion for the quarter.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCB) (NASDAQ:DISCK) has traded very cheaply over the past few years. As more and more U.S. consumers “cut the cord” on the traditional cable bundle, Discovery’s channels (which now include all Scripps Networks Interactive channels) have seen their subscriber counts decline. That, combined with the high debt load incurred for the company’s 2017 acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive, sent investors running for the hills last year. In 2017, the company’s three share classes dropped from roughly 10% to roughly 21%.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    You might think Discovery Inc.’s (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCK) (NASDAQ:DISCB) stations primarily feature nature videos and celebrity cooks, but did you know it’s actually becoming a player on the international sports scene? While known for its namesake Discovery Channel and documentary brands such as The Learning Channel, HGTV, and the Food Network, Discovery has actually been in the sports business since 2012, when it first acquired a minority stake in European sports channel Eurosport. Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

    Thursday brought a host of interviews for TheStreet that may (hopefully) spark interest during your weekend planning. UPS (UPS) Chief Financial Officer told us the shipping giant will unveil a transformation plan in coming months. Instinct tells me this could be a cost-cutting plan designed to help the company’s under-performing stock. Dunkin’ Donuts (DNKN) CEO shot back at noted short-seller Jim Chanos, who disclosed a year-long short position in the restaurant chain on Thursday. Chanos’ response to me via email: “Wow, a promotional CEO and his execs don’t agree with a short-seller….? Imagine that.” Yep. Hopped on the phone with Hasbro’s (HAS) CEO for a piece to hit over the weekend. Came away thinking retailers are preparing for a rather upbeat holiday season. The impact of Toys ‘R’ Us’ liquidation will likely weigh on Hasbro in the second quarter, then taper off in the back half of the year.

    While all of this is going on, Dominion has also announced plans to buy financially struggling peer SCANA Corp. (NYSE:SCG). This utility got into trouble when it canceled a nuclear construction project midstream after its contractor declared bankruptcy. Regulators, customers, and politicians have been less than pleased, with demands for rate and dividend cuts (a dividend cut was just announced).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) started 2018 well, delivering results that came in at the high end of its forecast thanks to much colder weather than last winter. Because of that, the utility believes its full-year results will come in above the midpoint of its guidance range. The company also affirmed its dividend growth forecast even though two factors helping to power it — the SCANA (NYSE:SCG) merger and its ability to grow its master limited partnership Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM) — have become increasingly uncertain.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Shares of SCANA Co. (NYSE:SCG) have received a consensus recommendation of “Hold” from the twelve research firms that are currently covering the company, Marketbeat reports.

    Investing in utilities is usually a pretty boring affair, with the main attraction normally being a reliable quarterly dividend payment.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) has been the “wait ’til next year” story of the defense industry for several years now. The company’s initial guidance for 2019 suggests that investors are going to need to be patient a while longer.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    For investors looking to put new money to work in a defense prime today, I’d recommend General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) over either Raytheon or Northrop Grumman. General Dynamics currently trades at a 20% discount to its rivals on a price-to-earnings basis and at a 13% discount on a price-to-sales basis due to continued weakness in its business jet division. There’s more risk to General Dynamics, but there is also more potential upside should it get its aerospace business on track and close that valuation gap.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    There’s more at stake for Huntington Ingalls and fellow shipbuilder General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) beyond the $6.5 billion in lost refueling revenue. A modern aircraft carrier does not sail alone but rather relies on a large number of escorts and affiliated ships that also need to be acquired and staffed. There is also the expense of finding pilots for the large number of planes that are housed on a carrier.

    The $3 billion competition, which includes management and maintenance of a range of navy and marine networks, will pit Perspecta against two of the largest government IT vendors, Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) and the recently bulked-up IT arm of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD).

    Granted, Dominion Energy’s payout of around 70% is at the higher end, but it shouldn’t be tough for the utility to maintain dividends given the highly regulated nature of its revenue. Of late, the market has been concerned about a couple of developments, including Dominion’s impending acquisition of SCANA Corp.

Hot Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now

For now, the only certainty is continued uncertainty. Given Trump’s unpredictable management style, it seems reasonable to expect increased market volatility ahead, asserts Carla Pasternak, contributing editor to Dow Theory Letters.

In searching for a steady-return ETF to add to our income portfolio ahead of potential volatility, we required four criteria:

1) above-average dividend yield of at least 2.5%;
2) below-average beta of less than 1.0;
3) below-average standard deviation of less than 10.77;
4) a positive year-to-date returns, with attractive technicals

We found about half a dozen that passed muster and selected the two we found most compelling:

    Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) plunged 7% after JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) slashed its price target for the automaker.

Inc. (NYSE: EL) shares were off 0.3% after the cosmetics giant reported earnings before the bell. The firm reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.61.
