    According to industry leaders, including Century Aluminum Co. (Nasdaq: CENX) CEO Michael Bless, many of those jobs will be in jeopardy with the new taxes.

Barclays analyst Thomas Driscoll and team see more dividend cuts and equity raises coming for oil & gas stocks like Apache (APA), Devon Energy (DVN),Encana (ECA), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Marathon Oil (MRO). They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Leverage concerns will lead E&P companies to take strong steps to strengthen balance sheets. As oil price weakness has lingered, management teams have become more willing to take stronger steps to address leverage. We view 4x debt to pre-interest cash flow as a warning sign that companies may be overlevered. At a $30-40/bbl WTI oil price, debt to estimated pre-interest cash is over 4x for 16-19 of the companies we cover. At $50 oil, roughly half of our coverage universe remains overlevered using our 4x coverage test…

We have seen several dividend cuts in the recent past, including Anadarko Petroleum cutting its dividend by 81%…and we expect more companies to follow suit. Chesapeake Energy (CHK), ConocoPhillips (COP), Encana,Marathon Oil and Noble Energy (NBL) are among energy companies that have also cut dividends in the past 12 months, but dividend requirements even after several cuts will consume ~26% of 2016 estimated cash flow at current dividend rates (15% excluding Occidental Petroleum (OXY)) for the large cap E&Ps we cover. We believe most of the companies with a dividend yield of more than 1.5% should consider cutting the dividend and find the following companies more likely than not to reduce dividends:Apache (2.5% yield),Devon Energy (4%),Encana (1.5%) andMarathon Oil (2.5%). We believe Canadian Natural Resource (CNQ) (3.0%) is likely to maintain its dividend while Occidental (4.5%) has the financial strength to maintain or even increase the dividend…

Hot Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    That includes pipeline companies like Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI), which already operates a pipeline transporting natural gas from Texas into Mexico, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (NYSE: ETP) and TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP), the company that has (so far) failed to get U.S. approval for its Keystone Pipeline expansion from Canada’s oil sands across the U.S. border.

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After a series of setbacks in its attempts to build new oil pipelines, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) completed a transformation transaction to acquire U.S. natural gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group for $13 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The key to that deal was that it increased the combined company’s near-term project pipeline to 23 billion Canadian dollars, which supports TransCanada’s ability to increase its dividend by 8% to 10% annually through 2020. After completing that deal, TransCanada made a bid to acquire all of the outstanding units that it did not own of affiliated MLP Columbia Pipeline Partners (NYSE:CPPL) in a transaction valued at $915 million. These acquisitions solidified TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline growth ambitions, enabling it to diversify away from oil pipelines.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    In addition to the Trans Mountain system, two other pipeline projects currently are proposed to move crude oil from Alberta either to the Great Lakes or the Gulf Coast. Enbridge Inc. (NYSE: ENB) is proposing to replace its 50-year old Line 3 system to transport 760,000 barrels a day to Superior, Wisconsin. TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) has received approval from the Trump administration and would transport 830,000 barrels a day to Nebraska where existing pipelines will take over, sending the crude to U.S. refineries and Gulf Coast terminals.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Thor Industries Inc.(THO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Finally, shares of Winnebago Industries dropped 6%. The maker of recreational vehicles has been under pressure ever since rival Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) reported its most recent quarterly results earlier this week, and Thor’s story led shareholders to sell off that stock. Yet although Winnebago is in the same business as Thor, some investors think that it could succeed where Thor failed, especially because the Winnebago brand name is much more valuable and has greater customer recognition that many of its competitors’ offerings. Winnebago will have its own chance to report its financial results later this month, and although many investors seem to be betting against the RV maker, others believe that Winnebago could easily make its competitive advantage against Thor and other manufacturers clear with a solid performance this quarter.

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE: THO) shares were also up, gaining 13 percent to $154.01 after the company reported stronger-than-expected results for its first quarter on Monday.

  • [By Elizabeth Balboa]

    Supply could come from any number of industry players, including Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE: THO), Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) and Camping World Holdings Inc (NYSE: CWH). However, whether it comes from existing inventory and whether suppliers can meet the demand are yet to be seen.

  • [By WWW.MONEYSHOW.COM]

    One of the world’s largest makers of recreational vehicles, Thor Industries (THO) is in the right place at the right time.

    Industrywide wholesale RV shipments for the U.S. and Canada surged 15% to nearly 431,00 units in 2016 — the highest annual total in more than 40 years, according to The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One of the largest projects is the Saddlehorn Pipeline, which Magellan is building with Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). Both Plains All American Pipeline and Magellan own 40% of the project, which puts their total investment at $230 million apiece. They expect the project to be fully operational early next year, which is noteworthy given its robust first-year economics. Magellan estimates that it will earn eight times EBITDA on the capital deployed, or roughly $28.8 million in annual EBITDA apiece for Magellan and Plains All American Pipeline on their investment.

  • [By Dustin Parrett]

    We think Plains All American Pipeline L.P. (NYSE: PAA) is one of the best oil stocks to buy this year. In fact, we see a scenario where PAA stock could jump 20% in 2017.

  • [By Dustin Parrett]

    Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE: PAA) controls 4 million barrels of crude oil and natural gas a day.

    And with higher oil prices and fewer restrictions leading to more drilling, PAA’s pipelines will be in demand in 2017.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc(VRX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Virendra Singh Chauhan]

    Nvidia corporation stock shook off the bad performance from the last week, with a nearly 3% gain in the first trading session of this week. If you are wondering whether or not NVIDIA stock has turned the corner, a recent tweet from NVIDIA bear Andrew Left offers some answers. In late December, Citron’s Andrew Left issued a bearish NVDA call, calling a $90 bottom on the stock. Well, the famed short seller of Valeant (NYSE:VRX) fame, recently disclosed that he had covered its short position on NVIDIA. Given that Citron had originally called for a $90 price target, it appears likely that Citron thinks NVDA stock has bottomed out $10 above its original target.

    Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (NYSE: VRX) made waves early on Tuesday after the company offered a plethora of announcements. First the company gave an update on its late-stage psoriasis trial. Along with this success, Valeant reported the sale of a couple of its business segments, bringing in a sizable amount of cash.

    As if it weren’t obvious yet, Ackman’s exit is bad news for the stock.Yes, some analysts have tried to focus on other issues that could be positive, but, really, as long as Ackman was around, you knew someone big had Valeant’s back. And now he’s gone. We at Barron’s were never too enthusiastic about Valeant–Vito Racanelliwrote bearishly on the company 2014–or Ackman’s involvement. But it he was your reason to be in Valeant, well consider what Wells Fargo analyst David Maris has to say:

    …we believe investors will take Pershing Squares exit as a reflection that 1) the outlook is negative; 2) the potential for meaningful near-term asset sales is unlikely; 3) the legal proceedings/investigations may have greater risk than the Street is appreciating; 4) a turnaround will take longer than expected or is not possible; and 5) the debtholders have an advantaged position in the capital structure, and as such the equity holders are at their mercy, especially in a bankruptcy situation. We believe investors would consider this as a sign that the next several years may not represent a major turnaround for the company.

    Shares of Valeant have dropped 11% to$10.76 at 3:12 p.m.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy Right Now: Nu Skin Enterprises Inc.(NUS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Nu Skin Enterprises (NYSE: NUS) is benefiting from two key trends: its strong presence in Asia where it books 79% of its revenue and leading brand awareness with millennials. The company has increased its dividend every year since 2001, now paying a 2% yield, and maintains a share repurchase program that returns excess cash to shareholders.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) is a direct selling company, which develops and distributes personal care products and nutritional supplements that are sold under the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands. This stock closed up 5.4% at $92.96 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 2 million

    Three-Month Average Volume: 900,802

    Volume % Change: 85%

    From a technical perspective, NUS ripped higher here right above some near-term support at $85 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of NUS into breakout and new 52-week-high territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $88.20 to $89.69. This move also pushed shares of NUS above the upper-end of its recent range that saw the stock trend between $82 to just above $89.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NUS as long as it’s trending above support at $85 and then once it sustains a move or close above Monday’s high of $93.33 with volume that this near or above 900,802 shares. If we get that move soon, then NUS will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $100 to $105.

    Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) is trading sharply higher on Friday, but options traders are buying puts in the name, said Jon Najarian. Traders were buying the June 50 puts and they paid around 6 percent for them, so they don't see much upside in Nu Skin Enterprises, explained Najarian. He followed the trade and he is planning to hold the position for a month.

    Citigroup’s Beth Kite calls Nu Skin Enterprises’ (NUS) earnings and guidance “awfully disappointing.” She explains why:

    “Frustrating” Describes 4Q15 & 2016 Guidance:Nu Skin (i) reported 4Q15 EPS of $0.62, 11 cents below consensus and us, and (ii) lowered 2016 EPS guidance, from $3.25-$3.40 to $2.40-$2.60.Nu Skin had three LTO’s in 4Q152 succeeded and 1 failed. The failure had far less to do with the product than with the sales strategy…

    Is Guidance Too Conservative or Is It Really This Bad? We get that Me failed to sell well in South Korea with the 12-month cartridge commitment. But given the strength in reps globally, the strength of Youth from its two LTOs in 2H15, and good results from Me when sold in Japan without the 12-month commitment, we wonder if guidance is aggressive to the downside. Indeed, the word “conservative” was said a lot by mgmt on the brief earnings call when describing guidance revisions.

    Maintaining Buy: While we now have less confidence in mgmt, from an external perspective, to forecast its results accurately, and from an internal perspective, to course correct quicklyi.e., why didn’t they drop the 12-month plan for Me in South Korea when it so obviously wasn’t workingwe are still confident in Youth & Me. The rep growth in South Asia/Pacific from Youth in 3Q led to better 4Q sales than we’d expected, Youth’s Americas LTO in 4Q drove lc sales up 26% YoY, and Me not only sold through in Japan in 4Q but also drove reps higher. We imagine that investors may have little patience or confidence in Nu Skin for a while, understandably. But the bar seems set fairly low now, so we are cautiously optimistic that Nu Skin can dig itself out of this hole as we go through 2016 and Me & Youth roll out more fully.

    Shares of Nu Skin have tumbled 13% to $27.31 at 2:11 p.m. today.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    In a number of articles recently, following the US recent revival and potential approval of the previously blocked Keystone XL pipeline, a number of estimates have been provided suggesting a pending boom for the US steel industry is on the horizon (and US steel stocks have reacted in kind). In fact, this optimism, we believe, peaked today when a report from one of our competitors was published claiming that, the keystone XL pipeline could increase line pipe demand by 14.7% for 2 years. The problem here, we believe, rests with the facts that: (a) TransCanada (TRP) has already taken, and paid for, the steel to build the Keystone XL pipeline (the steel currently sits in storage facilities in both Regina, Canada and Arkansas, United States), (b) neither US Steel (X; SELL), AK Steel, Steel Dynamics, or Nucor have the ability to make the specialized steel required for the miles of pipe associated with this project, to include both the thickness and pressure requirements, according to this article from Reuters, and (c) assuming some of the pipe does need replacement, this would likely come from international steel makers who are capable of producing the specialized steel (again, as highlighted in this Reuters article).

(NYSE: KMI), which already operates a pipeline transporting natural gas from Texas into Mexico, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (NYSE: ETP) and TransCanada Corp.

    After a series of setbacks in its attempts to build new oil pipelines, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) completed a transformation transaction to acquire U.S. natural gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group for $13 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The key to that deal was that it increased the combined company’s near-term project pipeline to 23 billion Canadian dollars, which supports TransCanada’s ability to increase its dividend by 8% to 10% annually through 2020. After completing that deal, TransCanada made a bid to acquire all of the outstanding units that it did not own of affiliated MLP Columbia Pipeline Partners (NYSE:CPPL) in a transaction valued at $915 million. These acquisitions solidified TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline growth ambitions, enabling it to diversify away from oil pipelines.

    Energy infrastructure companies ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) are both emerging from the energy market downturn as stronger entities. Each made smart acquisitions, with TransCanada buying U.S. gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group, while ONEOK is in the process of gobbling up its MLP,ONEOK Partners (NYSE:OKS). While these deals enhanced the growth profiles of both companies, TransCanada still stands out as the better buy for long-term income investors. Here’s why.

Much of the focus of cannabis investors has been centered on Canada and California. This makes sense given that they are the two largest recreational (or soon to be) cannabis markets in the world. However, one publicly traded company with US-centric cannabis operations has taken a different approach. iAnthus Capital is listed in Canada on the CSE (OTCQB:ITHUF), but is headquartered in New York and incorporated in Delaware. Unlike other Canadian-listed cannabis companies, most of which are aiming to get in on the highly competitive green-rush in California and Canada, iAnthus has set its sights on becoming the dominant player on the U.S. East Coast.

iAnthus’s strategy centers around building a portfolio of vertically integrated cannabis assets in markets that have significant barriers to entry, i.e., a limited number of licenses. While the Canadian and California markets are both larger than any other single state market in the US, they have low barriers to entry and, as a result, have a significantly higher ratio of growers and operators to consumers. This, combined with the fact that California and Canada are both renowned for their cannabis growing expertise, has led to fears of an ultra-competitive environment where most profits will be competed away as companies fight for market share. The east coast markets where iAnthus’s core assets are located, on the other hand, have a limited number of competitors, and when combined, add up to a population size significantly larger than either California or Canada.
