    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate.

We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018: Exelon Corporation(EXC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Horizon Investments]

    For the past year, Exelon Corp. (EXC) has had a roller coaster ride, with the stock having plummeted 15% since September 2012 – the company had announced a dividend cut of 41%, which led to a drop in the share price. Separately, the recent weak PJM auction prices did not bode well for the company. However, I believe the worst is priced in the stock price, and the company’s management is committed to improving its financial flexibility and cost structure in order to strengthen its financial performance. Also, the company is planning to incur capital expenditure (CAPEX) in the upcoming years, which will result in rate base growth for Exelon.

    But what does this apparent shift within the top levels of the nation’s executive milieu mean for the country’s growing renewable energy sector, and what do the new administration’s promises to redirect its efforts toward fossil fuels mean for investors in renewables? Let’s take a look at London-based Atlantica Yield PLC (NASDAQ:ABY)—formerly Abengoa Yield PLC (NASDAQ:ABY)—and how its fortunes have fared during this period of legislative uncertainty and the resulting speculation on the part of investors in the sector.

A long-haired princess, a video game villain, an ice queen, a pillowy robot, cosmopolitan critters, and now a demi-god.

That’s the trajectory of the current Disney Animation renaissance, which is likely to add another success to a string of them this weekend with “Moana.”

A musical that stars newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as the titular Polynesian princess and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the demigod Maui, “Moana” is projected for a five day holiday weekend opening in the range of $80 million to $85 million, according to box office analysts. The film is off to a good start making $2.6 million in Tuesday night showings.

Those projections would put it in play to be one of the biggest Thanksgiving holiday openings of all time.

Disney itself is being a bit more modest, putting its forecast closer to $70 million. But the House of Mouse may just be trying to downplay expectations. The truth is there are plenty of reasons to think that the film could pull in larger-than-expected ticket sales this weekend.

It recorded a disposal gain of S$97.3 million in 4QFY2016 and recouped its capital investment in its entirety with a surplus cash return of approximately S$23.2 million.

Shares in a British subprime bank tanked by as much as 75% in a matter of minutes Tuesday.

Provident Financial, which offers credit cards and loans to people who are normally turned away by traditional banks, issued a statement saying a plan to reorganize a business division had gone awry. Its profitability was in serious doubt.

Making matters worse, another division of the bank is under investigation by a top U.K. financial regulator.

Provident cut its planned dividend payments, and CEO Peter Crook resigned.

All this was simply too much bad news for investors to handle. The London-traded stock experienced a sharp sell off and is currently trading below 拢6 ($7.70) per share, down from the Monday closing level of 拢17.45 ($22.37).

The torrid pace of decline may be reminiscent of 2007 and 2008, but this is not the subprime crisis 2.0. It’s just one company having a very bad day.

Specifically, Provident Financial said the trouble started when it announced it would change its business model. For years they used thousands of self-employed sales agents to go door-to-door offering loans and collecting loan repayments.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2018

CBS (CBS) is up 34.5% in 2016, but JPMorgan thinks the stock can keep going strong next year.

Analyst Alexia Quadrani reiterated an Overweight rating and $69 price target on the stock Wednesday, writing that CBSs streamlined assets and savvy management means that it should easily pass $4 in EPS this year, a target that many questioned at the start of 2016.

Quadrani believes that CBS can continue to steam ahead next year, despite the lack of the Super Bowl and political ad spending, thanks to strong content sales, although a potential tie-up with Viacom (VIAB) may remain in the spotlight near term.

More detail from her note:

. 2017 will see a difficult comp from the absence of the Super Bowl and political ad dollars, which in our estimation account for ~$200m in operating income (possibly higher depending on the ultimate amount of election spending). The largest counterbalance to this will be retransmission and reverse comp revenue. Management has previously stated growth in 2017 should outpace 2016, given 21% of the retrans and 14% of the reverse comp footprint is up for renewal; we note that of the 21%, we expect roughly half of that early in the year with Fios, with the remainder toward the end of 2017 with Dish. Combined with guidance that total retrans/reverse in 2016 should surpass $1b, and the 39% growth YTD, we believe 2017 growth should be able to at least offset the operating income deficit from the Super Bowl and political.

Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2018: Exelon Corporation(EXC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Horizon Investments]

    For the past year, Exelon Corp. (EXC) has had a roller coaster ride, with the stock having plummeted 15% since September 2012 – the company had announced a dividend cut of 41%, which led to a drop in the share price. Separately, the recent weak PJM auction prices did not bode well for the company. However, I believe the worst is priced in the stock price, and the company’s management is committed to improving its financial flexibility and cost structure in order to strengthen its financial performance. Also, the company is planning to incur capital expenditure (CAPEX) in the upcoming years, which will result in rate base growth for Exelon.
