Best Financial Stocks To Watch Right Now

&l;p&g;Throughout January, stocks &l;a href=&q;https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/29/pros-call-the-stock-markets-parabolic-up-move-this-year-a-melt-up.html&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;continued to surge&l;/a&g;, building on a multi-year trend of swelling valuations that goes back to the wake of the financial crisis. And, as I&a;nbsp;&l;a href=&q;https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesfinancecouncil/2017/12/22/the-good-times-can-last&q;&g;discussed&l;/a&g; in my last article, there&a;rsquo;s reason to believe 2018 will be another rock solid year, despite the &l;a href=&q;https://www.marketwatch.com/story/stock-market-investors-weigh-potential-aftershocks-from-volatility-spike-2018-02-08&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;volatility&l;/a&g; that spooked investors in the early part of February. Remember, bull markets, unlike people, don&a;rsquo;t die of old age, even as this one is particularly long in the tooth.

Indeed, the recent tax reform package should boost corporate earnings and give consumers more money to spend. Meanwhile, the jobs picture continues to improve and wages, which have languished during much of the recovery, grew at the fastest pace in eight years, according to January&a;rsquo;s &l;a href=&q;https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/02/business/economy/jobs-report.html&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;labor report&l;/a&g;. Though some are concerned that the Federal Reserve could hike interest rates to stave off inflation — and, in the process, squelch the flow of easy money that has, in part, fueled rising markets — these factors portend mostly positive things for equities.

    However, Canada becoming the first developed country in the world to legalize adult-use cannabis is far from the only “marijuana first” we’ve witnessed this year. In February, Canadian weed investment company Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON), which has three core assets, announced that it was becoming the first Canadian pot stock to uplist to the Nasdaq (NASDAQ:NDAQ). Moving from the over-the-counter (OTC) exchange to a more reputable exchange like the Nasdaq allowed for improved liquidity, as well as cleared the way for institutional investors to take a position in Cronos Group. Wall Street traditionally shies away from investing in OTC-listed companies.

    Meanwhile, the return multiples for many of the projects under development by Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) are in the six- to eight-times EBITDA range. Because of that, the $1.7 billion of expansion projects Magellan currently has underway only will generate about $250 million in incidental EBITDA. That’s partially why Magellan Midstream expects to grow its payout at a slower pace of 8% this year and a 5% to 8% annual rate in 2019 and 2020, even though it plans on paying out the same percentage of its cash flow as ONEOK.

So you’d think these would be boon times for Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP), which owns 10,000 miles of pipeline that connect with 50% of the nation’s refinery capacity.
