Top Stocks To Own Right Now: Targa Resources, Inc.(TRGP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) currently offers a well-above-average dividend that yields 6.6%. In exchange for that high yield, investors need to accept a higher level of risk since the company barely generates enough cash flow to cover that payout, which is one of several red flags.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Incyte and Prothena’s meltdowns occurred in different fields of medicine, but both companies could have saved a bundle by generating some comparison data before investing heavily into a slate of big phase 3 trials. In June 2016, Merck & Co. (NYSE:MRK) started the first trial to see if its lead cancer therapy, Keytruda, could get a boost from Incyte’s epacadostat by comparing melanoma patients receiving the combo against those given Keytruda plus a placebo. Rather than wait for this study to complete before forging ahead, the partners enrolled patients with four more tumor types into similar phase 3 studies last January.

Hot Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019

It hardly seems possible, but life just got a lot more complicated in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Department of Justice still insists marijuana has zero medical benefits, yet the Food and Drug Administration just approved the first drug derived from a marijuana plant.

Epidiolex didn’t leave any questions about its ability to safely treat severe epilepsy, and that has encouraged investors to make its developer, GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH), a $4.1 billion company at recent prices. If Epidiolex sales enter the $1 billion per year neighborhood, shareholders could see some gains in the years ahead. Here’s a look at some unique challenges that could get in the way of such lofty expectations.

Approved, but not legal yet

Public opinion concerning medical marijuana has come so far in such a short time that a murky legal status will probably be the least of GW Pharmaceuticals’ problems while trying to launch Epidiolex. That said, there is still a major tangle to work out.

Hot Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019: Targa Resources, Inc.(TRGP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    It’s crucial that an investor understand how a pipeline company makes its money, because that will determine the overall stability of its cash flow, which is an important factor for dividend sustainability. Natural gas pipeline giant Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB), for example, generates 36% of its earnings from regulated gas pipelines; 60% from non-regulated assets backed by long-term, fixed-fee contracts; and 4% from NGL and other commodity exposure. Add it up, and 96% of Williams’ earnings come from relatively predictable sources. Natural gas processing giant Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP), on the other hand, generates about two-thirds of its income from fee-based sources and the other third from commodity margins. Targa would therefore experience a greater impact to cash flow than Williams if commodity prices took a tumble. That’s why investors should concentrate on pipeline stocks with a high percentage of their cash flow from fee-based and regulated sources, with more than 85% being an ideal target.

    There’s just one problem with all that production: It needs to get out of the basin, which is a problem right now since there aren’t enough pipelines. Because of that, some of the best ways to play the Permian production boom are pipeline companies.

It’s the first of what could be many expansion projects for the company in the region over the next several years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The growth opportunities could be significant. Large-scale midstream companies Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) and Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA) currently have billions of dollars of Permian growth projects under way that will significantly increase their cash flow in the coming years. Targa Resources recently secured contracts supporting $500 million of gas gathering and processing investments in the region, which boosted its total backlog of Permian projects to $2.4 billion, or 75% of its total planned spending over the next two years. Those expansions position it to nearly double its earnings by 2021. Plains All American Pipelines, meanwhile, is investing more than 80% of its roughly $2 billion capital budget on the Permian over the next two years, and it could end up spending even more money to meet the demand for oil gathering capacity. Those expansions help position it to grow cash flow at a double-digit annual pace over the next two years. Given Oasis Midstream’s much smaller size, it has the potential to capture needle-moving growth by expanding into the Permian.

Citigroup’s Alastair Syme and team argue that the earnings from big oil companies like Chevron (CVX), Total (TOT) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be bad…real bad. But that won’t stop the stocks from outperforming. They explain why:

Bloomberg News

Negative headlines, positive performance: We expect the majority of Big Oil companies to post negative 1Q16 earnings, a brutal headline, but one that clearly reflects the impact of cyclical oil price lows this quarter. The outlook can improve. Our positive thesis on the Big Oil group reflects a belief that the market still only discounts modest oil recovery we think c. $40/bbl is imbedded in valuations and a view that the group can drive self-help gains to boost profitability even in a low price environment. Signs of this self-help should be evident in 1Q operating performance: we expect to see the delivery of top-line growth (taking market share versus broader industry) and a continued reduction in operating costs, building on substantial cost-cutting through 2015.

The FBI raided U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer’s office in Manhattan.

    In one of the bigger moves the automotive industry has seen in recent years, General Motors (NYSE:GM) had previously been reported to be in advanced talks with PSA Group to sell its long-struggling and unprofitable European operations.

    Compare Tesla’s US story with the likes of Ford (NYSE:F)which mass produces its smaller cars in Mexico to avail of cheaper labor. Trump has already stated that he will slap an import tax on US manufacturers when they bring their cars back to the US for resale. If Trump is true to his word and this indeed takes place, this has to be good for the likes of Tesla. Remember, Tesla will have strong competition in EV’s from the likes of General Motors (NYSE:GM)and Ford in the next few years. So any edge Tesla can gain over its competitors will be grabbed with both hands.

    Alas, we have a lot of Ebenezer Scrooges out there in corporate America that either dont pay dividends at all or dont pay nearly enough of them. Realistically, not every company can be a dividend-paying powerhouse. Cyclical companies like General Motors Company (GM) or Ford Motor Company (F) have wildly erratic businesses and need to keep a little extra cash on hand for the lean years. (Of course, even then, weak share prices have made the pair of them look generous via nearly 5% yields.)
