Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2019

&l;p&g;At the 2018 Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders&s; Meeting, Warren Buffett and his partner, Charlie Munger, discussed their conviction in long-term buy and hold as an investment technique and specifically discussed Wells Fargo&a;nbsp;as well as well as their attitude to tech holdings, including Apple. Warren Buffett also shared his belief in the inefficiency of the U.S. healthcare system, and how the current U.S. trade position may be undesirable.

&l;strong&g;Long Term Buy and Hold&l;/strong&g;

As Charlie Munger, Warren Buffett&s;s business partner stated at the 2018 Berkshire Annual Meeting,&a;nbsp;&q;When there&s;s nothing to do, Warren is very good at doing nothing.&q; Even though Berkshire Hathaway&s;s assets have increased over time, they remain committed to their long-term holdings of their investments.

This means investing in companies, brands and managements they believe in for the long-term rather than making short-term trades.&a;nbsp;Buffett did note that they have reduced their position in Phillips 66, but the goal there was to have less than a 10% position to avoid various compliance issues. Buffett still has strong belief in Phillips 66.

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.

    Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) is in focus thanks to tax policy in Seattle. On Monday, the Seattle’s City Council passed a bill that will tax Amazon and 131 other companies $275 per employee each year in order to create a fund to address homelessness in the Seattle. The tax is half what was originally proposed and remains a contentious issue for Amazon, which is the city’s biggest employer. Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling. This hasn’t occurred since the World War II. The bank believes that the combination of the two could cause the Fed to spike interest rates in the near future.

    Overall, our Game-Changing Stocks portfolio has had a good run this year.

It’s not a fair comparison, of course, because our closed positions all have different time frames, but it does stress the strong promise of game-changing stocks.
