Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

Penney posted weak sales and earnings results last quarter and slashed its full-year earnings-per-share forecast due to the implementation of new accounting rules.
