Advisors’ Opinion:

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

    Utility stocks are generally considered conservative investments that reward shareholders over the long term with sizable dividends that grow slowly and steadily over time. With the S&P 500 Index’s yield hovering around 2%, the bar for yield is set pretty low today. That said, investors should think twice before jumping at utilities like UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE:ATO), and MGE Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEE), which offer little if any yield advantage over an S&P 500 Index fund.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    There’s an interesting dichotomy here, however. Crestwood was looking to stay financially disciplined, but it also needed to invest to grow. Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.

    Wall Street suffered a sharp drop on Tuesday, with major benchmarks posting substantial declines in response to a combination of economic factors. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond climbed above 3% for the first time since 2014, but of greater concern to many market participants were remarks in major corporate earnings reports suggesting that business conditions had likely hit their peak and were poised to deteriorate going forward. With raw materials costs starting to pick up, many manufacturers are reporting inflationary pressures that could hurt profits. Yet even as the broader indexes fell, some individual companies had good news to report. Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Helix Energy Solutions (NYSE:HLX), and Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) has been an undead company for several years now. Despite the fact that it hasn’t produced a profitable year since 2012, has been burning through cash for longer, and has more debt than the total capitalization of the business, it somehow hasn’t gone bankrupt. This entire time, management has been promising a turnaround with ambitious plans to reduce its costs, but these efforts have been all for naught as its financial situation continues to worsen.

    The Dow was flat this morning as major banks report earnings. Shares of JPMorgan Chase added nearly 1% after the company reported a record Q2 profit. The company also reported stronger results from its trading division, which likely benefited from recent market volatility. Its earnings per share of $2.29 was $0.07 above the average estimate of $2.22. China’s trade surplus against the United States hit a new record in June. Many economists are concerned that this news could cause U.S. President Donald Trump to escalate his tariff battle with China. Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to hit another $200 billion in Chinese goods with a 10% tariff. Trump has demanded that China cut down on its surplus. One of the biggest issues for marijuana companies right now is setting up a bank account. Because cannabis is still illegal under federal law, banks are afraid of federal crackdowns. That means a marijuana dispensary can’t deposit cash or take out a loan to help grow its business. However, that could soon change… Today, we take you into what could be one of the biggest breaks in the legal marijuana business. Check it out here.

The firm cited the recent tax law, increased fees, and better banking business in Mexico. The firm reported earnings per share of $1.63. That figure easily beat average expectations of $1.56 per share. It’s worth noting that the bank’s income tax provision declined by $351 million thanks to tax reform.

Best Canadian Stocks For 2019: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Stocks that pay a growing dividend tend not only to outperform the market but to do so with less volatility. That’s why risk-averse investors should consider stocking their portfolio with companies that have a high probability of paying a growing income stream in the years to come. Three top options worth considering are pipeline giants Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP).

    Moreover, TransCanada Corporation (NYSE: TRP)'s $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline – expected to carry heavy crude from Alberta to refineries in the United States – is yet to get a final investment decision. The midstream company had secured 20 years commitment for 500 thousand barrels per day for the pipeline and received Alberta government's support. However, the Nebraska government sanctioned the Mainline Alternative Route for the controversial project, which is longer than the company's preferred route and has forced it to review the alternative route keeping the final decision on hold.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    North American pipeline companies have three major pipeline projects currently under development: Trans Mountain, Enbridge’s (NYSE:ENB) Line 3 Replacement, and TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) Keystone XL. Of that trio, only Line 3 is currently under construction. Enbridge anticipates that the project will enter service in the second half of next year, bringing the pipeline’s capacity back up to its original design of 760,000 barrels of oil per day (BPD), which is double its current rate. The company recently won approval to construct the line through the state of Minnesota along its preferred route and signed an agreement with a Native American group to build it through their reservation. As a result, the company remains on schedule and on budget with the project.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) is in the midst of a major expansion phase, having invested a massive 10.5 billion Canadian dollars ($7.9 billion) into capital projects last year. Several of those expansions have already come on line, which helped drive strong earnings and profit growth during the third quarter. That trend should have continued during the fourth quarter, and it’s one of a couple of things investors should keep an eye on when the Canadian energy infrastructure giant reports results later this week.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In March, FERC dropped a bombshell on MLP investors by reversing a long-standing policy that had allowed these entities to collect an additional fee to cover income taxes as part of their cost-of-service rates on long-haul pipelines. This rule change weighed heavily on MLPs that were majority-owned by other energy companies, since they used this rate structure to cover the taxes they would pay on the income received from their MLPs. Among the hardest hit were Dominion Energy Midstream Partners — owned by utility Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) — and TC Pipelines, controlled by Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Meanwhile, Enbridge Energy Partners and Spectra Energy Partners, which are both sponsored by Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB), also sold off on that early-spring news, which subsequently led Enbridge to offer to acquire its MLPs.

    Meanwhile, TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) has been working to revive its Keystone XL pipeline. After years of delay, TransCanada could start full construction next year, which would put the line into service by 2021.

Editor’s Note: This blog post is adapted from a monthly feature in the Brookings Cafeteria podcast called “Wessel’s Economic Update” where Senior Fellow David Wessel discusses recent developments and projections in the economy. The transcript may be slightly edited from the audio recording.

Depending on the headline you read this morning, President Trump’s tariffs are either: a) making America great again b) a tactic that has yet to affect the economy one way or the other, or c) eroding the institutions that produce 75 years of post-World War II prosperity. So which is it?

Scattered across the economy, there’s evidence that the tariffs the U.S. has imposed and the retaliatory tariffs imposed by China and others are biting. Bloomberg reports that Europeans are canceling orders for blue jeans from a 10-year-old North Carolina firm called Raleigh Denim. The New York Times says at least a dozen local newspapers are curtailing publication days because of tariffs on Canadian newsprint. The Wall Street Journal says an electric bike startup called M2S Bikes in North Carolina put plans to build a network of 100 dealers on hold because tariffs boosted the cost of the bikes and motors it imports from China. And in Ohio, Tusco Display, a metal fabricator, furloughed 30 employees; it says tariffs are raising the cost of both domestic and imported steel and aluminum. New England lobstermen say they’ve been squeezed because China has doubled tariffs on seafood imported from the U.S. but lowered the tariffs on Canadian lobsters.

Best Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    But the story isn’t over. TC Pipelines’s units remain down nearly 40% so far this year — and that’s not just bad for unitholders, it’s also bad for the partnership’s general partner and parent TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP). TC Pipelines is, after all, effectively a funding source for TransCanada.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) expansion efforts continued paying dividends during the first quarter as earnings and cash flow kept growing. As a result, the Canadian pipeline giant remains on track to achieve its dividend growth targets. CEO Russ Girling affirmed that view on the quarterly conference call, where he detailed the company’s progress on its strategic plan.

  • [By John Bromels]

    It hasn’t helped that, in general, pipeline stocks have been having a rough couple of years. This is partly due to an overall industry slump, but different stocks have been hit for different reasons. For example, Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) took on a huge debt load to acquire Spectra Energy and weathered concerns about its cash flow. TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), on the other hand, was forced to cancel its Energy East and Eastern Mainline pipeline projects, which would have juiced long-term growth. 

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    When you invest in a company, you are effectively buying a small claim on its long-term cash flows. The hope, of course, is that those cash flows will grow over time and you’ll be rewarded with either a growing dividend or a higher stock price — or both. So when looking at companies like Kinder Morgan Canada Limited (NASDAQOTH:KMLGF) (TSX:KML)and TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP), you need to think both about what these companies look like today and what they will look like in the future. When you do that with this match up, one is a clear winner.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One company with a looming catalyst on the horizon is TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). It will pay its next quarterly dividend in July. To qualify for that payment, investors need to own shares of the Canadian oil and gas pipeline company before the end of June. And while collecting that upcoming dividend is a good reason to consider buying shares this month, it’s far from the only one.

    TransCanada (NYSE: TRP) and Transportadora de Gas del Sur (NYSE:TGS) are both oils/energy companies, but which is the better stock? We will contrast the two companies based on the strength of their dividends, analyst recommendations, institutional ownership, risk, profitability, earnings and valuation.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In 2019

Billions of funding dollars have poured into blockchain companies this year, and token sales in 2017 alone have amassed about $2 billion, already crushing last years token-sale total of $256 million.

But amid the seemingly undying hype of initial coin offerings, private investments into blockchain companies have risen to a new high as well — topping $4.5 billion so far this year, according to a research note released Friday morning by PitchBook.

The latest tally includes an anomalous boost of $3.6 billion from the second-quarter acquisition of DH Corporation, a Canadian fintech company that integrated blockchain technology into its global payments services in 2016. Austin-based Vista Equity Partners closed the lofty transaction in June and merged one of its existing subsidiaries with D+H to create Finastra, now one of the largest fintech firms in the world.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) worked hard to turn its business around during the oil market downturn. We saw the first glimpse of its ability to thrive, now that prices are on the upswing, at the end of last year when the U.S. oil giant reported $545 million, or $0.45 per share, of adjusted earnings. That result marked a significant improvement from the loss it had posted in the previous year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has worked hard to distinguish itself from other oil companies over the past few years by shifting its focus from growing production to increasing shareholder value. That led it on a path to shed high-cost assets so that it could slim down to a company that could thrive at lower oil prices.

White House senior assistant press secretary Kelly Love plans to leave her job for a position in the Department of Energy, becoming the latest in a series of aides to depart amid a reshuffle of President Donald Trump’s press team.

Love’s last day in her job will be Friday.

Some Trump communications aides have been shown the door, some have been assisted in finding posts elsewhere within the administration, and some left to escape the stress and intensity of working for Trump, people familiar with the situation said.

Love handled media questions related to agriculture, energy, legislative affairs, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Justice Department, among other agencies. During the presidential campaign, she handled media for Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Thursday that Love "has been a valued member of the press team since day one of the administration. She will be promoted to the Department of Energy as principal deputy press secretary, allowing her to focus on issues she oversaw here at the White House."

    Two turnaround stocks drawing attention from investors are propane distributor Ferrellgas Partners L.P. (NYSE:FGP) and specialty refiner Calumet Specialty Products Partners LP (NASDAQ:CLMT). They’ve had very different trajectories in the last year, with the former losing 35% and the latter gaining 108%. However, the biggest problem facing each business is the same: suffocating debt.

    After years of languishing in penny stock territory, shares of Calumet Specialty Products Partners (NASDAQ:CLMT) have had a nice run over the past year as its income statement is starting to show the results of management’s turnaround program. This past quarter, the company’s headline numbers didn’t quite show the progress we have seen in prior ones, but there are still reasons to believe that things are picking up at this specialty chemical producer and oil refiner.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:CLMT) is attempting to shift gears as it refocuses around higher-margin refined chemicals products. The plan sounds good on paper, and the independent refiner appears to be making progress. However, after a doubling of the price over the past year, most investors need to think carefully before jumping on this bandwagon. Here’s why.

Top Canadian Stocks To Invest In 2019

Few industries are as smoking-hot as the legal cannabis industry at the moment, and it’s not hard to understand why. In less than three months, Canada will become the first industrialized country in the world to sell adult-use cannabis. The legalization of recreational weed could provide in the neighborhood of $5 billion in added annual sales once the industry is fully ramped up, and, suffice it to say, investors are eager to take part in this rapid growth.

As for Canadian cannabis growers, they’ve been doing their part by expanding their production capacity as quickly as their balance sheets will allow. A number of growers have seen their capacity double, triple, or perhaps even more than quadruple, just since the year began.
