Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

If you’re looking to invest in renewable power stocks, you can always pick out pure plays that take advantage of the huge demand for clean energy — and with utility customers inking long-term power contracts as they switch from dirty carbon-based fuels, that might be a winning strategy. However, what if the growth story behind renewables doesn’t live up to today’s hype?

That uncertainty is why a diversified company like NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NEE), with utility and renewable power operations, might make more sense for conservative investors.

Focusing on renewables

There’s no question that a company like Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (NYSE:BEP) is a great direct play on renewable power. Roughly 80% of the company’s power is hydroelectric, with the rest made up largely of wind and solar. Moreover, it has exposure to Brazil (20% of generation) and Columbia (15%), in addition to the United States (60%). Much of the company’s growth has come from acquisitions, and long-term contracts back up the bulk of its revenues. It’s a perfectly fine renewable power investment.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Open Text Corporation(OTEX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet(Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.

Top Stocks To Watch For 2019

April 26 was a great day to be aChipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.(NYSE:CMG) shareholder. Following the release of the company’s first-quarter earnings after market close the day before, Chipotle’s stock price surged an incredible 24%, capping a remarkable 69% run since Brian Niccol was named CEO on February 13.

Did the company deliver? In short, yes and no. Sales were up 7.4%, same-store sales (also called comps) increased 2.2%, and earnings per share jumped 33%. But even as profits and sales improved, Chipotle continues to struggle to bring back customers: Comps growth was entirely due to a 4.9% average price increase, and fewer customers ate at Chipotle than in the year-ago quarter.

But Niccol aims to change that, and it looks like Mr. Market is buying into Niccol’s vision and expectations that he will deliver the kind of growth results he did as CEO ofYUM Brands’ Taco Bell unit. Let’s take a closer look at Chipotle’s quarterly results, as well as what Niccol had to say about his plans to continue turning the company around.
