Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Australia, one of the world’s biggest users of rooftop solar panels, likely added the most new capacity on record last year as electricity users sought to ease escalating power bills.

A preliminary estimate by Australia’s Clean Energy Regulator of 1.05 gigawatts installed last year would be a record for the country, the government body said in an emailed statement Friday. While subsidies and generous feed-in tariffs helped boost growth earlier this decade, last year’s gains were driven by users seeking to sidestep a surge in the cost of electricity and a push by vendors into the commercial sector, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

Apple and a solid jobs report lifted stocks on Friday.

The Dow gained 332 points, and all but one of the 30 companies in the index finished higher. The Nasdaq climbed 1.7%, and the S&P 500 moved ahead 1.3%. Stocks finished mixed for the week.

Apple rose 4% to an all-time high after Warren Buffett revealed that Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) bought about 75 million shares during the first three months of 2018. The stock had its best week since 2011.

Apple rewarded investors this week with plans to buy back $100 million worth of stock. That’s on top of the company’s record $22.5 billion worth of buybacks during the first quarter. Those announcements overshadowed slower iPhone sales.

The market climbed most of the day after the jobs report, which showed that wages grew 2.6% from a year earlier not fast enough to trigger worries about inflation. In February, the market plunged when wages rose faster than expected.

The economy added 164,000 jobs in April, lower than expectations. Unemployment fell below 4% for the first time since 2000.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

India’s gold demand grew by 9.1 per cent to 727 tonne in 2017 due to low prices coinciding with Dhanteras, positive economic backdrop and improved consumer sentiment especially in rural areas, according to a World Gold Council (WGC) report.

The total demand stood at 666.1 tonnes in 2016, WGC said in its latest Gold Demand Trends report.

“The demand was mainly driven by jewellery, which grew as GST stabilised, stock markets performed well and GDP growth leading to better economy and consumer sentiment, particularly in the rural areas, as the effect of demonetisation wore off,” WGC Managing Director, India, Somasundaram PR told PTI.

Also, the government’s decision to remove anti-money laundering regulation, the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), from jewellery helped boost demand.

The growth was mainly driven by jewellery demand in 2017, which was up by 12 per cent at 562.7 tonne compared to 504.5 tonne in 2016. In value terms jewellery demand was up 9 per cent at Rs 1,48,100 crore, from Rs 1,36,290 crore in 2016.
