Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Ive been right about Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) thus far.

There seem to be only two schools on Tesla. You either love the carmaker, or you hate it with a passion. I fall into the latter category, not because I’m anti clean energy, or opposed to new entries to the auto industry, but because of the grandiose and inefficient management history the company has had under Elon Musk. Ive written often about the competition and general cutthroat nature of the auto industry that Tesla faces. Ive been waiting for some time to see signs of Teslas inability to ramp up car production in a way that justifies its wild stock valuation. And boy howdy have I taken some flak in the comments section.

This week has given me some vindication on my feelings about Tesla. The stock is down on rough news of production complications, and a fading faith in Elon Musks rhetoric, something I said would happen. The valuation is not justified, and cannot be justified when youre selling such a small amount of cars and not turning any profit. I get it that this stock performance is about future potential earnings, but the company is not putting together concrete evidence that it is working toward those types of numbers.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Atkore International Group Inc. (ATKR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Flexing the barbell strategy to balance Safe Havens with more cyclical exposures. In our view, industrials investors should be positioning their portfolio with a barbell strategy, with half of the exposure in Safe Havens like General Electric, Xylem (XYL), Danaher, Honeywell International, Roper Technologies (ROP), and AMETEK (AME), and the other half selectively in the cyclical names that are better positioned today, such as Pentair, HD Supply Holdings (HDS),Actuant (ATU), Atkore International Group (ATKR), Ingersoll-Rand, and Eaton (ETN). We still believe risk-reward is mostly balanced and that the macro will remain choppy into 2017, supporting a positioning in the defensive names. But if investor sentiment improves on not-worse news and earnings results, the more cyclical names could fare better.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    It has been a year worth forgetting for shareholders of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT). The wearables maker has seen sales sputter and profitability took a big hit thanks to a steep increase in expenses. However, much of that money has been aggressively put into research and development in the past year. While that has contributed to the dismal-looking bottom line, investing for the future is a good thing.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    While the economy’s natural — and recurring — cycles favor different kinds of stocks at different times, not every great trend is necessarily a cyclical one. Sometimes, a trend is rooted in a technological development that changes cultural norms. The advent of the smartphone, for example, has made constant connectivity to the world around part of how we live our daily lives.

    These mega-trends present tremendous opportunities for investors too, provided they’re savvy enough to see them coming and play them the right way.

    One such mega-trend newly underway right now is the proliferation of wearables… devices that meld clothing (often a wrist-worn device) and technology to perform a function that couldn’t be performed otherwise. Much of the same technology that made the smartphone possible are now ushering in wearables.

    It’s not been a smooth beginning. however.

    While the buzz was strong and expectations reached a peak two years ago when Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) was all the rage and in the wake of its IPO, the company’s growth wasn’t to be sustained. The company is struggling to muster any growth now, and FIT shares have fallen to a tenth of their value seen in late-2015, when the euphoria was strongest.

    Fitbit’s slowdown has been mirrored by other companies in the space. The wearables market only grew 3.1% in Q3 of 2016.

    On the flipside, while the debacle of Fitbit — the wearable industry’s iconic company — has been a painful, it’s also been a learning experience. And, it’s not as if the slowdown is unfurling without the wearables market never reaching a respectable size. International Data Corporation estimates were 23 million ‘wearables’ delivered in the third quarter of last year alone.

    Moreover, the fizzling of the market hasn’t turned into a reason to swear off wearables as an investment opportunity… quite the opposite, actually. It’s just now become considerably clearer what consumers want an

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Ford Motor Company(F)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jack Foley]

    Ford’s (NYSE:F)decision to take on more long-termdebt could be a sign of things to come for the auto manufacturer. The company is borrowing $2 billion making it the first time the company will be accessing the debt market in 4 years. Currently, Ford’s debt to equity ratio is 2.86 so this will obviously increase once more debt is added on the books. I have stated in myprevious commentary that Ford will want it’s electrified and autonomous technology to pay off in the near term.

    Earlier in the month, California-basedelectric car manufacturer Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) surpassed Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) and General Motors (NYSE:GM) to become the most valuable U.S car company. While the traditional auto manufacturers are getting hit by the slowdown in the U.S auto industry, there seems to be no impact on Tesla Inc. For the month of March, both Ford and General Motorsreported a miss on deliveries. Ford Motor saw its deliveries fall by over 7% YoY in March while GM’s deliveriesgrew by just over 1%. In contrast, Tesla Inc reported 69% YoY increase in deliveries (albeit on much smaller base) handsomely beating analysts estimates. As a result, while Tesla stock has surged, shares of Ford Motor and GM took a hit. Over the past one month, shares of Tesla Inc have gained more than 20%, while GM and Ford have seen their shares fall by around 10% in the same period.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Abeona Therapeutics Inc.(ABEO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting small cap rare disease stock Abeona Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: ABEO):

    Abeona Therapeutics is clearly a timing trade – we think today’s something of a blowoff top, marked by a volume surge and the fact that the stock’s already peeling back from its peak; the profit-takers are already going to work. We saw a similar surge on Tuesday, and though that one didn’t end up kick-starting a pullback, it helped set up today’s reversal bar (by virtue of luring in the last of the would-be buyers). There’s just not a lot of room left for more upside.

    Small and micro cap stocks can obviously be a fickle bunch, but I sure hope all of you participated in Abeona Therapeutics Inc. (ABEO) back when we first put the idea out there in early June. What a tremendous stock this has been for all of us, and it’s not like this happens all of the time.
