Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Mention the word uranium and most likely weapons of mass destruction come to mind. While you can make plenty of jokes about investment returns in the event of nuclear war, choosing to diversify your portfolio with uranium mining stocks is certainly worth a closer look.

Azincourt Uranium Inc. (OTCBB: AZURF) (TSX: AAZ.V) the Canadian based resource company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration and development of uranium properties, recently announced that it has completed the acquisition of an option to gain an undivided 70-percent stake in a mining project in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan. This allows the mining company to increase exploration and production mining in a region known to be rich in base minerals.

The significance of this is twofold: as climate change continues to be a global issue, the demand for clean energy is rising. And as demand rises, so too does the number of nuclear reactors under construction worldwide. In China alone there were 20 nuclear reactors under construction at the end of March, 2017.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Kamada Ltd.(KMDA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.

    Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) is in focus thanks to tax policy in Seattle. On Monday, the Seattle’s City Council passed a bill that will tax Amazon and 131 other companies $275 per employee each year in order to create a fund to address homelessness in the Seattle. The tax is half what was originally proposed and remains a contentious issue for Amazon, which is the city’s biggest employer. Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling. This hasn’t occurred since the World War II. The bank believes that the combination of the two could cause the Fed to spike interest rates in the near future. This comes at a time when the Fed has already lost control of interest rates. Look for additional earnings reports from Eagle Materials Inc. (NYSE: EXP), Bitauto Holding Ltd.(Nasdaq: BITA), Virtusa Corp. (Nasdaq: VRTU), Global Eagle Entertainment Inc.(Nasdaq: ENT), and Kamada Ltd. (Nasdaq: KMDA).

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Sociedad Quimica y Minera S.A.(SQM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Beth McKenna]

    While FMC’s lithium business is only a small part of its total business, it’squite large relative to other industry players. Most industry experts peg the companyas the fourth or fifth largest producer of lithium in the world, behind Albemarle(NYSE:ALB) and Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile, or SQM(NYSE:SQM)– both of which also have businesses other than lithium –and China’s Ganfeng. China’s Tianqi was neck and neck with FMC for No. 4, according to an estimate from a few years ago by lithium expert Joe Lowry, who runs Global Lithium LLC.

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    Morgan Stanley analysts had issued a report predicting that the cost of the lithium could fall 45% by 2021 and they also downgraded key lithium producers Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) and Chiles Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM) to “underweight” from “equal weight.

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    Earlier this week, senior commercial vice president Daniel Jimenez of Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM)told delegates at Industrial Minerals’ and Metal Bulletin’s inaugural Battery Materials conference in Shanghai that there is a legitimate concern on the side of electric vehicle (EV)manufacturers over the reliability of lithium supply sources and that the industry has shown poor track record of delivering projects on time. Jimenez also commented:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    It should be noted that FMC Corp together with Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) and Chiles Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM) forma so-called lithium oligopoly that tends to dominate global production. A recent Bloomberg article noted that Albemarle Chief Executive Officer Luke Kissam had said in March that hes also eager to see how the value settles for the FMC lithium spinoff. Iftheprice-to-earnings ratio is high enough,then they would look to create a pure-play lithium business byselling off non-lithium units. If FMC Corp and Albemarle Corporation do end upcompletingthese spin-offs, thatwill be good news for the valuations of all lithium players as the market will put clear valuation numbers onthese larger pure play lithium businesses which will help provide valuation benchmarks for other small cap lithium players.
