Best Stocks To Invest In Right Now

For the second time in less than a year, Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI) has given the green light to a new natural gas pipeline project, this time making a final investment decision on the Permian Highway Pipeline. In doing so, the company is adding a bit more clarity to its growth prospects, which dimmed earlier this year after it sold the Trans Mountain Pipeline and its controversial expansion project to the Government of Canada. While the company hasn’t yet replaced what it lost by jettisoning that project, it’s working fast to lessen the blow.

Details on the latest project

Kinder Morgan initially unveiled the Permian Highway Pipeline project in late June, announcing that it signed a letter of intent with private equity-backed EagleClaw Midstream and Apache (NYSE:APA) to develop another new gas pipeline out of the Permian Basin. That project got a big boost of confidence last month when ExxonMobil’s XTO Energy subsidiary signed on to be an anchor shipper. The partners would go on to secure additional shippers for nearly all the pipeline’s remaining capacity, which allowed them to officially sanction the project this week.

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018

Mattel (MAT) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after missing earnings forecasts by a wide margin.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

Matteldropped 18% to $25.99 today, while the S&P 500 dipped 0.1% to 2,296.68.

Barclays analyst Felicia Hendrix doesn’t believe the plunge made Mattel’s shares any more attractive. She explains why:

While the company’s valuation could appear more attractive following this release, we remain Equal Weight particularly given that management’s LT growth objectives are now pushed out to 2019 from 2018, and in 2018 the company faces tough comps against a strong entertainment driven 2017. Until investors feel more comfortable with Mattel’s growth trajectory, we believe valuation upside is limited. Further, with this most recent setback, we believe investors are going to focus on the sustainability of the dividend yet again which could also be an overhang. The new CEO (as of 2/8) could shake things up and inject growth (particularly in ecommerce), which would certainly be a positive. We are looking forward to hearing Ms. Georgiadis’ plans as she gets settled in

Top Dividend Stocks To Watch For 2018: Caesars Entertainment Corporation(CZR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) and Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) are two of the most well known gaming companies in the world. But they’re very different companies with very different futures ahead.

  • [By Michael E. Lewitt]

    Back in April, I recommendedCaesars Entertainment Corp.(Nasdaq: CZR) as a buy – but warned you that this was a play that might take some time to mature.

  • [By AlphaStreetResearch]

    Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CZR) is a highly overvalued gaming, hotel, and entertainment company with deteriorating fundamentals on all levels in a highly competitive environment. The company’s stock has seen a massive run to the upside on the coattails of other casino and entertainment companies in the space. A considerable catalyst for the push higher in these stocks is the good news coming out of Macau, but this is an area where Caesars has absolutely no exposure and will be locked out of for the foreseeable future after failing to take appropriate licensing measures. Below is our introduction into the business model, its weaknesses, and the new selling or shorting opportunity that exists for CZR after the recent appreciation in share price. Investors will soon realize that there is little upside value in this company and that there are much better opportunities in this space. The company is now amidst a major struggle from a debt standpoint with major deadlines approaching over the next year and a half. The company is in no position to thrive going forward unless major steps are taken to overhaul the company’s capital structure. Caesars Entertainment has a market cap of $3.19 Billion after the stock has moved up over 225% year to date and reports its next quarter on October 31, 2013. With this in mind, we value CZR at $21.00 by year-end of 2013 and $14.00 by August 1, 2014, a decrease of 40% from current levels. We will later highlight:
