Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now

Imperial Oil Limited (IMO Quick QuoteIMO ) recently announced that it is on track to build an international-level renewable diesel facility at its Strathcona refinery close to Edmonton, Alberta.

From locally-produced and cultivated feedstocks, this new complex is set to produce more than 1 billion litres of renewable diesel fuel, annually. The project is intended to reduce emissions in the Canadian transportation industry by around 3 million tons a year, which is equivalent to removing almost 650,000 passenger vehicles from the road for a year.

Blue hydrogen (hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon capture and storage) will be used in renewable diesel manufacturing to significantly curb greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional hydrogen production. Annually, around 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide are predicted to be captured. To manufacture premium low-carbon diesel fuel, the blue hydrogen and biofeedstock will be mixed with a patented catalyst.

Imperial Oil is now in partnership talks with government and industry including the governments of Alberta and British Columbia, both of which lent a consent to support this project through an agreement under Part 3 of their low-carbon fuel legislation.

GM CEO Mary Barra expects a slew of new crossover SUVs — and a share buyback — to boost GM’s earnings per share in 2017. Image source: General Motors.  

General Motors (NYSE:GM) had a good year in 2016 — and CEO Mary Barra said this week that she expects 2017 to be even better.

Barra: GM had a very good 2016

The results won’t be official until GM releases its fourth-quarter earnings report on Feb. 7, but Barra began a Tuesday press conference by dropping some very upbeat hints about GM’s full-year result.

For 2016, we are on track to deliver full-year records for revenue, EBIT [earnings before interest and taxes], and EBIT margin, and expect to achieve full-year [earnings per share, or EPS] in the high end of our previously stated range of $5.50 to $6.00. We are also on track to achieve more than a 10% EBIT margin in North America for the second straight year.

    Aside from the oil price boost, Enbridge also got a lift from analysts. In early January, Wolfe Research upgraded the stock from peer perform to outperform, and Macquarie followed that up later in the month when it initiated coverage on the company with an outperform rating. Macquarie further noted that it prefers Enbridge over rival Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) because it has a “more palatable” leverage level after the company sold several assets last year to reduce debt. However, Macquarie stated that TransCanada and Enbridge have the best dividend track records and outlooks in the space, since both are on pace to grow earnings at a 10% annual rate through next year, which should support similar increases in their high-yielding dividends.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) has almost everything an investor could want in a stock. With a dividend yield of around 4.8%, the Canadian pipeline giant supplies investors with a lucrative income stream. Meanwhile, with 21 billion Canadian dollars ($16 billion) of expansion projects underway, the company has the fuel to grow earnings at a 10% compound annual rate through 2020, which should enable it to increase its dividend 8% to 10% per year through 2021. Finally, after selling off 11% this year, shares trade at an attractive value. Add everything up, and TransCanada has the potential to generate market-beating total returns in the coming years, which makes it an excellent stock to consider buying.

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projects last year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

What happened

What a wild ride it’s been for Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY). After jumping as much as 14% in early trading, shares of the Canadian marijuana grower were down 22.5% as of 12:05 p.m. EDT on Thursday. Tilray didn’t make any announcements, so what led to the big drop? It’s quite possible that we’re either seeing investors take profits off the table or maybe the winding down of a short squeeze.

So what

It would make sense that some investors could be selling Tilray to lock in profits. Before today, the stock had racked up a gain of 540% in just the last month. Tilray enjoyed a big jump this week after its CEO appeared on CNBC talking about how there could be “multiple hundred-billion-dollar companies” in the cannabis industry in the future.

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projects last year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

    For years, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) has used its master limited partnership (MLP) TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP) as a source of capital by dropping down assets to that entity in exchange for cash. However, a regulatory policy change earlier in the year hit TC Pipelines hard, which caused the MLP to slash its distribution to investors. These changes have weighed heavily on the MLP’s valuation and access to capital. Because of that, TransCanada no longer believes it can use TC Pipelines as a viable funding option.

    Kinder Morgan is one of the largest pipeline companies in North America. Its assets span across the United States and reach into Canada and Mexico. There are only a small number of competitors — like Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) and TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP) — that can match the company’s scale. Kinder is in a truly elite group of midstream giants.
