Best Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

What happened

Shares of natural-gas-for-transportation supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE) are up 10.2% at 2:47 p.m. EDT on August 9. Today’s surge follows a bad day on August 8, when shares finished down 11% following the release of the company’s second-quarter financial results after market close. 

So what

Today’s big jump is interesting, considering that there really isn’t any corresponding news that could be the catalyst. The company didn’t make any announcement, there are no published Wall Street analyst upgrades of the stock, and there aren’t any of the other usual suspects, such as rising oil prices. 

If there’s a “best guess” reason why shares are moving up today, it’s that some investors are seeing the positives that really outweighed any negatives from the company’s second-quarter earnings report. Clean Energy ended the quarter with more cash than debt, more improvement in lowered expenses, improved gross margins, and a clear path toward growth, with multiple catalysts set to drive adoption of natural gas in the heavy-trucking industry.

    Yet, while imperfect, this little figure can help pinpoint underpriced stocks that have room to climb, especially when book value is rising. That just might be the case with sporting goods retailer Big Five (Nasdaq: BGFV). The company operates 435 stores in 11 states, selling everything from camping gear to snow skis.

    Those competitors would Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT), Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (NYSE: DKS) and Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), owner of Fred Meyer stores, that have stopped selling assault-style weapons or making sales to people under 21 years of age. Stores that continue to sell all kinds of guns include Big 5 Sporting Goods Corp. (NASDAQ: BGFV) and Cabela’s, a sporting goods store that was acquired last year by privately held Bass Pro Shops.

    CBAK is in a very competitive industry, as well as being small relative to its competitors. Among the Company’s competitors are giants like Panasonic (OTCPK:PCRFY) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF), but overall it faces competition from Japan, Korea, and China. Although CBAK states that “we are able to leverage our low-cost advantage to compete favorably with our competitors”, it is hard to see that being the reality, especially when looking at the above gross margins. Still, the Company may enjoy lower labor costs, since it sources labor locally and apparently it has “higher consistency and safety in product quality, which enables us to compete favorably with local competitors”. But given the greater resources of at least some of its competitors and the constantly evolving dynamics of the industry, competition is surely a risk factor to consider.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

The authoritative biography of Warren Buffett was aptly named: Snowball. When a snowball starts at the top of the mountain, it can easily fit in your hand. It takes lots of rolling time to double in size, as its lightness makes it hard to pick up more snow. But there is a tipping point, at which the snowball reaches a critical mass, and when combined with gravity, the object doubles, triples, and quadruples in size as it picks up momentum. The snowball becomes an entirely different animal, functioning by its own set of rules.

The exact same can be said for how some — but certainly not all — billionaires make their money work for them. The 1% of investors play by a very different set of rules than us Main Street folks trying to save for retirement. Once they have reached a point at which their financial future is secure, they can take far more — not less — calculated risk with their wealth. And this is a tactic us non-billionaires can learn some lessons from.

    For instance, TerraForm Power Inc.

Then you have Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE:SWK), the company behind a handful of relatively well-known tool brands but not one that’s widely known among investors. It can get even more obscure, like Petmed Express Inc. (NASDAQ:PETS), the online pet pharmacy that’s certainly not a household name for most people and certainly not investors.

    As you can see, there’s a lot of excitement in the NASH space at the moment, and plenty of big drug stocks are itching to add a promising NASH drug to their product pipelines. But one name that continues to be left out in the cold is Intercept Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ICPT).

    If that line holds true, this emerging space should be able to support multiple new drugs, meaning that the current leaders in the field –Intercept Pharmceuticals (NASDAQ:ICPT) and Genfit — probably won’t be able to monopolize the market before other competitors like Viking get their drugs past the FDA. In fact, this market is so large it could feasibly support several blockbuster level products.
