Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened 

Solar stocks took a beating Monday after China cut its national incentives to install solar projects. Shares of solar panel manufacturers Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:CSIQ) fell as much as 14.5%, JinkoSolar Holding Co. (NYSE:JKS) dropped as much as 17%, and Daqo New Energy Corp (NYSE:DQ) fell as much as 31.3% while inverter manufacturer Enphase Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ENPH) fell up to 13.5%. By early afternoon, most major stocks in the solar industry were down double digits.

So what

There were two pieces of China’s solar ruling, one having to do with distributed generation (DG) and the other with utility-scale solar.

On the DG side, China put a cap of 10 gigawatts (GW) for new solar projects in 2018, down from 19 GW installed in 2017. According to Asia Europe Clean Energy Advisory Co (AECEA), there may already be more than 10 GW of DG projects installed in China, so that could make it tough to build any projects in the second half of the year.

    Though I expect this to be an unpopular selection, I’m personally a fan of mortgage real estate investment trusts (REIT), despite investors discounting the industry as being yesterday’s news. In particular, I believe AGNC Investment Corp. (NASDAQ:AGNC) could surprise income investors and deliver healthy returns.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    In particular, agency-only mortgage REITs tend to be a considerably safer bet during a rising interest rate environment. This would include Annaly Capital Management, which had $90.6 billion of its $101.8 billion in total assets invested in agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) as of Dec. 31, 2017, as well as AGNC Investment Corp. (NASDAQ:AGNC), which had $54.8 billion of its $69.3 billion investment portfolio tied up in agency MBSs. Though agency MBSs pay less given that they’re protected from default, it allows Annaly Capital Management and AGNC Investment Corp. to lean on leverage to generate income. As of their most recent quarters, Annaly and AGNC sported respective leverage of 6.6-to-1 and 8.2-to-1.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019

What a silly stock market. There I was on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. waiting for the Dow Jones Industrial Average to crash 1,700 points as Trump verbally ripped Iran to shreds (and pulled out of the Iran deal). The Dow instantly tanked 80 points one sentence into Trump’s latest global spectacle. But then the Blue Chip index rallied back as Trump continued to hit Iran, and actually finished the session higher. As a 15-year old would put it: #WTF.

For an already jittery market to be able to shrug off major news of this kind is nicely short-term bullish…or is it.

“Couple of thoughts. First, there’s genuine confusion right now about the value of strength. We like strength in employment because there’s no real wage inflation. We like strength in commodities because it means the world’s not slowing down. And we like strength in consumer spending like we heard last night in Disney (DIS) and we have been hearing for weeks now in earnings season,” writes TheStreet’s founder Jim Cramer over on RealMoney on the weird move in the markets Tuesday. In effect, we could be in a short-term good news is good news environment for stocks. That’s an environment where you load back up on cyclicals and hot tech names like Netflix (NFLX) (which could be acquired by Action Alerts PLUS holding Microsoft (MSFT) in within two years, reports TheStreet’s Katherine Ross).

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019: American Capital Agency Corp.(AGNC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    In particular, agency-only mortgage REITs tend to be a considerably safer bet during a rising interest rate environment. This would include Annaly Capital Management, which had $90.6 billion of its $101.8 billion in total assets invested in agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) as of Dec. 31, 2017, as well as AGNC Investment Corp. (NASDAQ:AGNC), which had $54.8 billion of its $69.3 billion investment portfolio tied up in agency MBSs. Though agency MBSs pay less given that they’re protected from default, it allows Annaly Capital Management and AGNC Investment Corp. to lean on leverage to generate income. As of their most recent quarters, Annaly and AGNC sported respective leverage of 6.6-to-1 and 8.2-to-1.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Own For 2019

A prominent hedge-fund manager has publicly attacked JD.com Inc. and its billionaire founder Richard Liu, calling China’s No. 2 e-commerce operator over-valued and upbraiding its top executive for persistent losses.

Kok Hoi Wong, chief investment officer for APS Asset Management Pte, pulled no punches in criticizing JD at the Sohn conference Wednesday. He accused the company of making “regrettable and silly investments” — in Bitauto Holdings Ltd., among others — and warned about its inability to make a profit in a cut-throat Chinese arena. Wong drew laughs after accusing Liu of never having run a profitable company in his life, and said his own internal valuation for the $52 billion company was “a tiny figure.”

“All the evidence I’ve seen suggests to me that JD is a super-hyped stock,” Wong, whose Singapore-based firm manages about $3 billion, told the annual gathering of hedge fund and investment managers in Hong Kong. “JD is between a rock and a hard place.”

    The stock chart says that shares of U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) have lost one-quarter of their value in 2018 and 47% in the last year alone. The frack sand leader’s operational performance in 2017 says that doesn’t make any sense.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Investing in frack sand supplier U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has been a roller-coaster ride to say the least over the past few years. First, everyone on Wall Street was clamoring to get into frack sand when shale oil and gas were getting their start in the first half of this decade. Then, oil prices started to crash, and demand for frack sand dried up fast. Now that oil and gas producers have significantly lowered costs and are using more sand than ever, demand is red-hot again, but investors don’t seem to be interested.

    U.S. Silica (NYSE:SLCA) had its price objective trimmed by Morgan Stanley from $47.00 to $43.00 in a report issued on Wednesday. The firm currently has a buy rating on the mining company’s stock.

    U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE:SLCA) has long been the standout company in the frack sand business. Its size and financial strength allowed it to weather the drop in oil prices better than its peers and positioned it well for the recent growth phase. This past quarter, the company expanded its universe by acquiring another mineral mining business, but it is taking some risk in doing this. Thankfully, demand for frack sand remains high, as evidenced by the company’s most recent earnings results.

    Shares of Inovio Pharmaceuticals(INO) are climbing today after the biotech company announced that it would begin testing a Zika vaccine in Puerto Rico. Maxim’sJason McCarthy andJason Kolbert have the details:

    CREDIT: Alex Wild Published Credit: Alex Wild Alex Wild

    Inovio announced the initiation of a small clinical study (N=160) of its Zika vaccine, GLS-5700 (being developed with GeneOne Life Sciences), in Puerto Rico. It is estimated by the CDC that the Zika virus could infect more than 25% of the population of Puerto Rico by YE16.The study will evaluate safety, immunogenicity and early signs of efficacy in preventing Zika infection. Data are expected in 2017, and if positive, Inovio will discuss with regulators the best path forward.

    In addition, the phase I study of GLS-5700 (N=40) in the U.S. and Canada, which is the first in-human Zika vaccine study, is now fully enrolled. Data evaluating safety and immunogenicity are expected by YE16.

    Conclusion. With the Zika virus spreading, including to the U.S., there remains an urgent need for a vaccine. Inovio continues to demonstrate that the company’s DNA-based vaccine approach is safe and can rapidly transition to human studies.

    Shares of Inovio Pharmaceuticalshave gained 4.3% to $9.24 at 2:50 p.m. today, while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) has dipped 0.3% to $284.29.
