Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019: Martin Midstream Partners L.P.(MMLP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Master limited partnerships (MLPs) Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) and Martin Midstream Partners (NASDAQ:MMLP) currently yield a jaw-dropping 13.7% and 17.4%, respectively. Both payouts are well above the 8% average yield of MLPs held in the Alerian MLP Index, which is a clear sign that the market doesn’t believe in the long-term viability of these payouts. Their unsustainability is even more apparent when we look at the embarrassingly weak financial profiles currently backing these payouts, which is why investors should steer clear of these high-yield stocks.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) has made several shrewd moves over the past few years, which have positioned it to grow its high-yielding dividend at a high rate. One of the latest is its recent deal to buy out Martin Midstream Partners’ (NASDAQ:MMLP) 20% interest in the West Texas LPG pipeline system. With full control of that pipeline, the company can more aggressively pursue expansion opportunities, which recently led it to secure a second project on the system that positions it for even more growth in the future.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    It’s also just one of several oil pipeline projects in the works throughout the Permian Basin. Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) is currently investing $1.6 billion on Permian Basin expansions, which include two long-haul pipelines and several other complementary projects to help de-bottleneck the flow of crude. Those projects help position Plains to grow earnings and cash flow at a double-digit annual pace over the next two years, setting it up to increase its 4.9%-yielding payout at a healthy rate going forward.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE:PAA) continued its turnaround in the second quarter as recently completed expansion projects helped drive earnings higher. While its financial results weren’t quite as impressive as they were in the first quarter due to the impact of seasonality and asset sales, it still was a noticeable step forward for a company that has had its share of challenges in recent years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One oil midstream company that meets all these criteria is Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA). While the oil pipeline MLP did struggle during the recent oil market downturn, it’s working to address those issues, which positions it to deliver better returns for investors in the coming years. Among the problems it’s fixing is its balance sheet, with Plains’ aim to get its leverage ratio to less than 4.0 times by early next year. Meanwhile, the company has invested heavily in strengthening its portfolio of fee-bearing assets so that long-term contracts now support 90% of its earnings. Finally, Plains only expects to pay out about 60% of its cash flow to support its high-yield dividend in 2018, which is an ultra-conservative level for an oil pipeline stock.

The SEC is investigating GE’s accounting tactics and its massive insurance losses. The Justice Department is probing GE’s (GE) pre-crisis sale of subprime mortgage. Furious shareholders are suing GE and former top executives over allegedly misleading statements.

JPMorgan estimates that the company faces more than $9.2 billion in damage claims in addition to other potential losses from the SEC and shareholder lawsuits.

Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) sold its stake in GE last year, told CNBC on Monday that “clearly there were mistakes made” at GE.

“The accounting at GE has not been a model at all in recent years,” Buffett said.

GE’s stock briefly sank below $14 on Monday for the first time since July 2010.

    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) chief economist Jan Hatzius has a message for the markets. Hatzius said in a research note on Monday that U.S. GDP has likely peaked. “The current pace is probably as good as it gets because we expect the impulse from financial conditions to gradually turn more negative,” Hatzius said.
    The European Union slapped America with roughly $3.3 billion in tariffs on U.S. goods. The tariffs, which are in retaliation to the Trump administration’s recent steel and aluminum tariffs on the EU, will go into effect in July.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019: Zynga Inc.(ZNGA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Gaming publishers are always looking for the next big thing. The odds of scoring a huge hit are vanishingly small, even for a short-term victory. Consider the case of Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), the social gaming veteran that struck gold with FarmVille and Words With Friends once upon a time. The company went public at the very height of that adrenaline rush. If you bought in at Zynga’s peak share prices in the spring of 2012, you’ve weathered a 70% cut to your investment’s value so far. Like I said, it’s a long way down from the top.

    Earlier this month,the price of aluminum spiked after the U.S. government slapped sanctions on Rusal, the second-largest supplier of aluminum to the U.S. and Canada. That news sent the stocks of U.S. aluminum producers like Alcoa and Century Aluminum (NASDAQ:CENX) soaring on the belief that they’d profit from the higher prices that would likely result from the sanctions.
