North Dakota-based Weather Modification International uses planes to target clouds and draw out more rain from them.

The concept, called cloud seeding, has been around for decades. But there is new urgency due to climate change and a rapidly growing global population, which have disrupted global water supplies.

By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

Weather Modification describes cloud seeding as “an enhancement” of the natural precipitation process. The technology makes storms more efficient by getting additional moisture out of clouds.

“If there [are] no clouds in the sky that have any moisture in them, then we can’t do anything,” Brian Kindrat, an aircraft captain at Weather Modification, told CNNMoney’s Rachel Crane. “What we can do is tap into what is there and assist mother nature.”

    Shares of CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), a global communications and IT services company, fell 13.9% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after the company reported its fourth-quarter 2018 results. Investors weren’t happy that the company’s revenue declined on a year-over-year basis and that it posted a loss — and they really didn’t like the fact that CenturyLink cut its annual dividend.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo, Chuck Saletta, and Daniel Miller]

    That’s not always the case, though. An above-average yield can also be an indicator that all’s not right for a business. Carefully selecting which stocks make the cut as part of a high-yield portfolio is an important step. Three Foolish contributors are here to help. They think CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI), and Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) are worth considering.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Own Right Now

Stocks continue to print new highs. And many continue to doubt the rally–as they have for much of the post-crisis recovery.

They continue to say stocks are priced for perfection, implying that stocks are expensive, and/or that investors are assuming a perfect presidency from Trump. But remember, we’ve talked about the massive fundamental and technical performance gap that has still yet to be closed, dating back to the 2007 pre-crisis peak. I did this analysis again just a few days after the election. You can see it here: “The Trump Effect Will Make Stocks Extraordinarily Cheap.”

Now, a few days ago, we talked about buying the stocks of the guests of Trump Tower. Goldman Sachs comes to mind, as the Wall Street powerhouse has been well represented in the Trump plan, including the new Treasury Secretary appointment. Goldman is the best performing Dow stock over the past month. And we talked about the meeting with Japanese investor, Masayoshi Son, at Trump Tower this week. Son’s gigantic (80%+) stake in Sprint is up 11% since Tuesday.

Top 5 Stocks To Own Right Now: Noodles & Company(NDLS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    It might seem odd that the industry’s biggest winner so far this year isn’t growing. In fact, Noodles & Co. (NASDAQ:NDLS) recently posted a quarterly net loss while revenue decreased 5%. But that result still shot past investors’ expectations by showing surprising progress in the casual-dining chain’s recovery efforts. Noodles & Co. has lots of work ahead of it before it can snap out of its four-year stretch of annual net losses. Yet, with shares having fallen by over 80% since 2013, even modestly good news proved to be enough to spark at least a short-term rally in the stock.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

To receive timely trade ideas from us, take a free trial to our newsletter – click here to get started.

Some stocks are expensive but work out well anyway due to exciting earnings growth. Other times the best way to make money is to simply buy shares which are temporarily undervalued due to unimpressive current results.

Israeli-based Teva Pharmaceutical (NASDAQ:TEVA) falls into the second category. Profits from continuing operations have been flattish over the past half-decade. EPS weighed in at $4.98 in 2011 and are expected to finish this year at around $5.16.

A large cash and stock purchase of Allergan’s (NYSE:AGN) generic drug business was completed in August. We think the greater than $40 billion price tag might prove to be a long-term bargain. AGN’s generic business should start bumping up TEVA’s earnings as early as next year, with an eventual annual cost savings of around $1.4 billion per year.

Consensus views for 2017 now center on $5.74 which would be an all-time record. At TEVA’s current quote around $38.95, the shares appear quite cheap, at less than 6.8x next year’s projection. At $38.95 the firm’s 34-cent quarterly dividend provides 3.6% in current yield.

Apparently, investors are beginning to catch on to the fact that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a severe case of a behavioral condition known as the planning fallacy. People who suffer from the planning fallacy are serial offenders when it comes to projects coming in over budget, late, and with fewer features than promised. The New York Times reported that Telsa’s main problematic issues pertain to a slower timetable than expected for the introduction of the Model 3, along with problems that relate to the manufacture of its battery packs.

Best Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

The stock market dropped yesterday finally.

For the first time in 2018, the major averages dipped into the red to close out a quiet trading session.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but some traders are annoyed that the market broke its streak and finished lower. While I dont think I need to write this, I will anyway: the stock market must go down sometimes. Some people are forgetting this inconvenient truth as the trading environment gets a little frothy.

Honestly, Id be worried sick if the major averages shot up for a month straight. That kind of action is much more dangerous than the slow and steady melt-up weve experienced since last year.

With the market streaking higher every week, its tempting to tune out boring down days like we saw yesterday. Dont fall into this trap! When the market slips, you should pay close attention. The action can reveal important clues about where you should look for your next trade.

It all boils down to performance. On a down day in a strong market, we need to watch for the stocks or sectors that are outperforming everything else. Sometimes, these will be the stocks that are down less than the averages. Other times, these are stocks that finish well in the green. That brings us to yesterdays action

Best Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019: Inphi Corporation(IPHI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Inphi (NYSE:IPHI) issued its quarterly earnings results on Tuesday. The semiconductor company reported ($0.05) earnings per share for the quarter, hitting the Thomson Reuters’ consensus estimate of ($0.05), Bloomberg Earnings reports. The company had revenue of $60.10 million for the quarter, compared to analysts’ expectations of $59.82 million. Inphi had a positive return on equity of 5.39% and a negative net margin of 21.51%. The firm’s revenue for the quarter was down 35.8% on a year-over-year basis. During the same period in the prior year, the firm earned $0.44 earnings per share. Inphi updated its Q2 guidance to $0.12-$0.14 EPS.

    Inphi (IPHI) provides high-speed analog and mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications, datacenter and computing markets. This stock closed up 4.7% at $13.25 in Monday’s trading session.

    Monday’s Volume: 838,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 202,080

    Volume % Change: 378%

    From a technical perspective, IPHI jumped higher here right above some near-term support at $12.44 with heavy upside volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the last five months, with shares soaring higher from its low of $8.62 to its intraday high of $13.85. During that uptrend, shares of IPHI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move briefly pushed shares of IPHI into breakout territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $13.50.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IPHI as long as it’s trending above some near-term support at $12.44 and then once it sustains a move or close above its new 52-week high at $13.85 with volume that hits near or above 202,080 shares. If we get that move soon, then IPHI will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are its next major overhead resistance levels at $14.79 to $16.94, or possibly even $18.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch Right Now

The conventional wisdom about investing says to manage and avoid risk. Buy solid companies. Hold for the long term. “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price,” as Warren Buffett put it.

Of course, that’s not nearly as fun — and, indeed, it’s not always the best advice. Higher-risk, higher-reward plays should have a place in younger investors’ portfolios, in particular. And a little bit of risk can add some focus — and potentially some return — to diversified holdings for older investors as well.

Toward that goal, here are 10 high-risk but high-reward, stocks. It’s worth reiterating that these stocks only are for risk-tolerant investors and only for a small part of a portfolio.

And in all cases, investors need to make their own decisions as to which side of the trade to take. These stocks are likely to move big, but that can cut both ways.

    J.M. Smucker(SJM) is falling Monday, after Morgan Stanley’sMatthew Grainger and his team cut their rating on the stock, citing pricing pressures from Wal-Mart (WMT) and growing competition from private-labels.

    Getty Images

    Grainger slash Smucker to Underweight from Equal Weight, and shaved $6 off his price target, to $126. He also cites what he calls “sustained” challenges in both its coffee and pet food business, as well as“below-average strategic optionality.”

    At the same time, he also upgraded Pinnacle Foods (PF) to Overweight from Equal Weight, and raised his price target to $63 from $58, on its double-digit earnings growth and what he sees as superior execution.

    Nonetheless, he sees many of the packaged food companies in his coverage, from Smucker to Pinnacle, as subject to pressure from Wal-Mart and off-brand rivals. From the note:

    Walmart comprises ~22% of sales across our coverage, a figure that has increased in recent years even as the retailers total grocery sales have grown at an even faster 4% CAGR. With Food margins expected to expand meaningfully, we believe this only enhances Walmart’s negotiating leverage going forward. SJM, Dean Foods (DF), and General Mills (GIS) are most at risk in the current environment, in our view.

    Recent scanner data points to a positive inflection in private label trends (share up ~30 bps L12W) across a range of center-store categories, a dynamic we believe could intensify in an increasingly competitive retail grocery landscape. Our analysis of recent trends points to the most meaningful underperformance vs. private label at GIS, SJM, ConAgra (CAG), and Campbell Soup (CPB), while only PF has outperformed in recent weeks.
