Of course, investors should be aware that airlines legendarily compete head-on in most markets: United, for example, has just said that despite stronger-than-expected fourth quarter revenues, it will add capacity and match others’ low prices.

Fasten your seat belts. Dramatic swings in the oil market may soon become the norm.

After a prolonged period of low prices and relative calm, oil watchers are predicting a surge of volatility following President Trump’s decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran. Crude has spiked 19% this year, to prices unseen since late 2014.

Taking away Iranian oil — after production cuts by Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Russia — effectively means the margin for error in the market will become razor-thin.

In 2015 and 2016, there was so much supply that crude prices crashed. Now that buffer has been worn down so much that the market is extra-sensitive to geopolitical dangers and other shocks.

But that’s not all. Other powerful drivers are likely to jerk oil prices around, including the resurgent US dollar and a surge in production from Texas shale fields.

“Without a doubt, there are a variety of forces that could upset the balance and move us into a more volatile period,” said Ben Cook, portfolio manager at BP Capital Fund Advisors, an energy investment firm.

    Like the other segments of the oil industry, investors have several options to choose from in the downstream sector, which typically makes more money when oil prices are low because they need to buy oil, which they then refine into higher-value products like gasoline. A company like Phillips 66 operates refineries, petrochemical plants, as well as marketing and distribution businesses. Meanwhile, other companies focus solely on one area of the downstream segment. For example, PBF Energy (NYSE:PBF) mainly operates refineries, Westlake Chemical (NYSE:WLK) primarily owns petrochemical plants, while Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN) distributes refined products to places like gas stations.

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

While the past year has been very up and down forTesla Inc.(NASDAQ:TSLA) investors, anyone who bought shares of the electric car, solar panel, and energy storage company before April 2017 — or more recently, since April2018 –has enjoyed market-beating returns. But with a market capitalization above $60 billion at recent prices, investors seem to have already banked heavily that the company will accomplish much bigger ambitions, based on the current valuation.

And while investors shouldn’t count Elon Musk and Tesla out, it’s never wise to put all your hopes — and money — on a single company. We asked three investors who write for The Motley Fool — one of whom is a Tesla shareholder — for alternative ideas — stocks they think could put Tesla’s future returns to shame. They put together compelling arguments forClean Energy Fuels Corp.(NASDAQ:CLNE),Berkshire Hathaway Inc.(NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B), andCodexis, Inc.(NASDAQ:CDXS).

Top Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

We continue to believe that the pharmaceutical industry is selling at an undervalued price. In the semi-annual report, we detailed why we thought it was cheap. We wrote the following:

“As if Valeant (NYSE:VRX) has not given enough pain and anguish to our unitholders, we believepharmaceutical stocks as a group are selling at attractive valuations. They generate their earnings in cash and most of them are selling at less than 10 times cash earnings. Some of them are down more than 50% from their highs, which is what caught our attention initially. It may look like we are adding more emotional fuel to the fire from our experience with Valeant but we look at mispriced stocks on a case-by-case basis. Given our current favorable view of the pharmaceutical industry generally, as next discussed in greater detail, we expect to invest in stocks of more than two or more pharmaceutical companies (that is, to utilize a so-called “basket approach”), in order to reduce the potential adverse effect on fund returns that could result from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and patent expiration issues faced by a single company.

Top 10 Gold Stocks For 2019

In his Harvard University commencement speech last month, Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg made a chilling prediction…

Technology and automation will make many jobs obsolete.

We are likely to see “tens of millions of jobs replaced by automation,” said Zuckerberg.

And he’s right.

According to a January 2017 report from The McKinsey Global Institute entitled “Automation, Employment, and Productivity,” the next 20 years are expected to produce a veritable “robotics gold rush” in America.

The report claims that the manual labor and customer service industries will be hit especially hard. And because of this shift to workplace robotics, “millions of employees in these sectors could be forced to learn new skills or change career roles entirely over the next two decades.”

Even more concerning, American jobs are more at risk than other developed nations. In fact, in the United States, 38% of jobs could be at risk of automation, compared to 30% in Britain, 35% in Germany, and 21% in Japan, according to a recent analysis by PwC.

    Sunoco (NYSE: SUN) and Macquarie Infrastructure (NYSE:MIC) are both mid-cap oils/energy companies, but which is the better investment? We will compare the two businesses based on the strength of their earnings, risk, profitability, dividends, analyst recommendations, valuation and institutional ownership.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Around this time last year, Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN) announced a transformative divestment. The sale of its extensive retail filling station network to convenience store specialist 7-Eleven was going to give management the cash it needed to clean up its balance sheet and provide it with a much more stable revenue source. One would have assumed that when the company made this transaction, Wall Street would reward the stock with a higher valuation. That hasn’t been the case, though, as Sunoco’s stock is still languishing with a sky-high distribution yield north of 12%.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    However, he did rule out the possibility that the company would also roll up its other MLP Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN). He said that “we’re very pleased with what we’re seeing at SUN as far as the growth that they will be directing that MLP into. And as you know, SUN is younger in the IDR life.” Because of that “for the reasonable future, we don’t see that being rolled up.”
