Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Devon Energy Corporation(DVN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One sector that the market threw into the discount bin was oil, with several producers plunging double digits this week. Because of that, investors have a chance to pick up some top-notch oil stocks for a much lower price. Three that stand out are Hess (NYSE:HES), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO). Here’s a look at why this week’s sell-off looks like it could be a great opportunity to buy these oil stocks.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Oil prices have continued rebounding this year, with the U.S. benchmark price WTI up another 7% to around $65 per barrel. That improving oil price has helped drive up most oil stocks. I say most because Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), Apache (NYSE:APA), and Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) are flat to down so far this year because investors seem to have overlooked them entirely. Because of that, they trade for a dirt-cheap valuation versus their peers, making them intriguing options to consider.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    On the other hand, for many large U.S. oil producers, it doesn’t matter what OPEC does, because they spent the past few years repositioning their businesses to prosper at lower oil prices. Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) is one of many producers that has sold assets to help pay down debt and reduce its cost structure. As a result, Devon is on pace to grow its U.S. oil production at a mid-teens compound annual rate through 2020, which would expand cash flow at an even more impressive 25% rate. Furthermore, Devon can achieve that fast-paced growth as long as oil averages $60 a barrel, and it would produce an estimated $2.5 billion in free cash flow over that time frame. That ability to generate a gusher of cash at a lower price point positions Devon for success in the coming years.

    Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Energen (NYSE:EGN) are both oils/energy companies, but which is the superior investment? We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their profitability, earnings, risk, institutional ownership, valuation, analyst recommendations and dividends.

    Devon Energy (DVN) : “They shot the lights out. They’ve got growth and are bigger than ever.”

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Shares of Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) have been all over the place so far in 2018. Investors initially pounded the stock after it reported disappointing fourth-quarter results to start the year. However, it has recovered since then after posting much better numbers in the first quarter as well as surprising investors with a big-time dividend increase and share buyback program. Still, shares are only up about 7% this year even though crude prices have been scorching-hot, rocketing more than 20% year to date.

    I’ve written previously about my belief that shrinking oil inventories and rising crude oil prices will spark a recovery in energy services stocks, and I’ve already explained why Core Labs and Hess Corp are favorite stocks of mine to buy. Now, after reviewing Oceaneering International’s (NYSE:OII) first-quarter results, I’m increasingly convinced that it’s a great time to add this stock to any portfolio.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    This process starts with gathering pipelines, which transports a well’s production to central processing locations that separate oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), and water. The oil then moves by truck, pipeline, or tanker to storage facilities while it waits to go through a refinery or petrochemical complex and get turned into fuel, chemicals, or another oil-based product. While oil companies tend to own some of these midstream assets, especially gathering lines and processing facilities, third parties hold a significant portion of the energy infrastructure in North America. These companies often charge fees for the logistical services provided to oil companies. Master limited partnerships (MLPs) are a noteworthy owner of these assets in the U.S. and most commonly found in the energy midstream sector. MLPs are tax-advantaged entities that pass through most of their income to investors. The largest MLP by enterprise value is Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), while other notable ones include Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX).

    So in this spirit, I thought I would share with you a stock you may want to consider for your own portfolio because it is one I have recently purchased myself: oil and gas logistics player MPLX LP (NYSE:MPLX).

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Suncor Energy Inc.(SU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell, Jamal Carnette, CFA, and Nicholas Rossolillo]

    To figure out which holdings might be the best stocks to buy today, we asked three Motley Fool contributors to take a closer look at Berkshire’s holdings and then give us their ideas. Here’s why they think Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU), Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) could be top stocks to buy now. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    With the country’s current pipeline capacity filled to the brim, it makes it nearly impossible for producers to expand output much further, since the only way to get those supplies to market centers is via rail, which is much more expensive. That’s why leading Canadian oil sands producer Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) recently said that it wouldn’t approve any more expansion projects until it sees construction start on new pipelines.

  • [By ]

    Suncor Energy Inc. (SU) – “We expect modestly below-consensus results driven by
    downtime and the ramp costs at Fort Hills. We still see a robust second-half 2018 and 2019 free cash flow story and would recommend investors look through any near-term
    noise.”

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Last week, the biggest news out of the oil patch was that OPEC agreed to hike its output by 1 million barrels per day (BPD) starting next month. That announcement drove oil prices higher because OPEC didn’t boost production as much as some thought it might. However, while that news grabbed headlines, an under-the-radar report about issues at Suncor Energy’s (NYSE:SU) Syncrude oil sands facility in Canada could have an even bigger impact on oil prices in the U.S. over the next few months.

The institutional investor owned 3,121,057 shares of the oil and gas producer’s stock after purchasing an additional 1,536,736 shares during the quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In early June, Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) put out a press release announcing that it was “set up for strong production for the remainder of the year.” Driving Suncor’s view was the fact that it finished all the major maintenance projects across its facilities and its recently completed expansion projects were exceeding expectations.

    With the country’s current pipeline capacity filled to the brim, it makes it nearly impossible for producers to expand output much further, since the only way to get those supplies to market centers is via rail, which is much more expensive. That’s why leading Canadian oil sands producer Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) recently said that it wouldn’t approve any more expansion projects until it sees construction start on new pipelines.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    It seems every quarter lately, Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has had to deal with some grueling challenge affecting its bottom line — whether it’s the wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta, the technical failures at its Syncrude oil sands upgrading facility, or the inability for other companies to build crude oil pipelines out of Alberta. This past quarter, the lack of pipelines really reared its head, and the price of Canadian crude oil slipped below $10 per barrel in the fourth quarter. But despite this problem and the ones that have preceded it, Suncor has somehow found a way to produce respectable results.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

For this episode of Motley Fool Answers, Robert Brokamp and Alison Southwick bring in an outside expert to discuss one of the more fraught and complex challenges that many of us will face as adults: becoming a primary caregiver for an aging loved one. It’s a position that can sap your time, your energy, your emotions and your finances — and that’s when things are going normally. In addition to being a pro on the subject, their guest, the AARP’s Amy Goyer, has traveled this path with multiple family members, and she has plenty of straightforward, actionable advice to share.

In this segment, she talks about the extra challenges of being a long-distance caregiver. In our highly mobile society, it’s very possible no effective surrogate will be living anywhere near an elderly relative when they need more frequent assistance. But even if there is one, those who live farther away can’t just delegate all the responsibility on the one who has proximity.

A full transcript follows the video.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Suncor Energy Inc.(SU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Even though Canadian oil giant Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has been a cash-generating machine for its investors in recent quarters, the company continues to struggle with one of its premier assets: Syncrude. The oil-sands mining and upgrading facilities for this massive project in Alberta have been shut down or not running at full capacity several times over the past few years, and it is keeping Suncor from realizing its full potential.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Toronto Dominion Bank increased its position in shares of Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) (TSE:SU) by 30.9% during the first quarter, according to the company in its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The firm owned 9,779,382 shares of the oil and gas producer’s stock after acquiring an additional 2,309,941 shares during the period. Suncor Energy makes up about 0.8% of Toronto Dominion Bank’s investment portfolio, making the stock its 11th largest position. Toronto Dominion Bank owned approximately 0.60% of Suncor Energy worth $337,645,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has richly rewarded investors over the past year. Not only has the stock vastly outperformed both the S&P 500 and most other oil stocks, but it has returned a boatload of cash to shareholders through a higher dividend and share repurchases. Cash returns could rise some more in the coming months thanks two recently completed expansion projects and higher oil prices. These catalysts could be just the fuel this Canadian oil stock needs to continue outperforming.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Shares of Schneider Electric SE (EPA:SU) have earned a consensus recommendation of “Buy” from the fifteen analysts that are presently covering the stock, MarketBeat.com reports. Seven research analysts have rated the stock with a hold recommendation and eight have assigned a buy recommendation to the company. The average 12-month price objective among analysts that have covered the stock in the last year is €81.00 ($94.19).

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Shares of Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc (NYSE:HLX) soared 33.3% last month thanks to a combination of higher oil prices, strong first-quarter results, and a string of analyst upgrades.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Higher oil prices haven’t helped large integrated oil companies such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) much, though they did see gains Tuesday with the rest o the market and after a positive note from Bank of America Merrill on Exxon.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While America’s oil giants ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) and Chevron (NYSE:CVX) have been late to the shale party, that’s beginning to change as both see the Permian as a key growth driver in the future. In Exxon’s case, the oil giant expects its production in the Permian to grow fivefold by 2025 when it should average more than 800,000 BPD. Meanwhile, Chevron holds an estimated 11.2 billion BOE of resources in the Permian, which positions it to grow its output in the region from around 200,000 BOE/D up to more than 600,000 BOE/D by 2022.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Williams Partners L.P.(WPZ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Jason Hall, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Matt DiLallo (Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Williams Companies is in the midst of a major transition. It recently agreed to acquire the rest of its MLP, Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ), in a $10.4 billion deal. The pipeline giant is making this acquisition so that it can more easily finance the expansion projects Williams Partners has under development. The transaction would allow it to free up some cash flow and improve its credit metrics, giving it more financial flexibility.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    SG Americas Securities LLC lowered its holdings in Williams Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:WPZ) by 27.7% in the 1st quarter, according to the company in its most recent 13F filing with the SEC.

    A stock that gains 25% in less than a year is going to turn a lot of heads on Wall Street.

    Last week, the biggest news out of the oil patch was that OPEC agreed to hike its output by 1 million barrels per day (BPD) starting next month. That announcement drove oil prices higher because OPEC didn’t boost production as much as some thought it might. However, while that news grabbed headlines, an under-the-radar report about issues at Suncor Energy’s (NYSE:SU) Syncrude oil sands facility in Canada could have an even bigger impact on oil prices in the U.S. over the next few months.

Top 5 Stocks For 2019

Most people have jobs. They faithfully go to work each morning, do their best to execute their duties, come home tired, and look forward to weekends and vacations.   They do this to make ends meet, hoping something better will come along. And better things do come now and then, along with setbacks. But the drudgery continues. Week in. Week out. Forty years pass. Life has been half miserable. But it's time for retirement.   Retirement means getting out of job jail. No more hated work. It's now time for relaxation and fun…   Just kidding!   As it turns out, retirement today is this: After giving up a fairly well-paid full-time job, you take on several poorly paid part-time jobs (without benefits) to pay for your ever-increasing retirement expenses.   But it doesn't have to be that way…   You can spare yourself the misery by ditching the job early on and replacing it with a career.

Top 5 Stocks For 2019: Suncor Energy Inc.(SU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Suncor Energy Inc. (SU) – “We expect modestly below-consensus results driven by
    downtime and the ramp costs at Fort Hills. We still see a robust second-half 2018 and 2019 free cash flow story and would recommend investors look through any near-term
    noise.”

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has richly rewarded investors over the past year. Not only has the stock vastly outperformed both the S&P 500 and most other oil stocks, but it has returned a boatload of cash to shareholders through a higher dividend and share repurchases. Cash returns could rise some more in the coming months thanks two recently completed expansion projects and higher oil prices. These catalysts could be just the fuel this Canadian oil stock needs to continue outperforming.
