Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Depending on how investors look at the situation, natural gas transportation fuels leader Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) is either oh-so-close to finally cashing in on its long-term potential or on the doorstep of a much worse fate. Considering shares have fallen almost 80% in the last three years, it may seem difficult to remain optimistic. But there are some rays of sunshine piercing through the dark clouds.

Management has made several difficult but necessary decisions to put the business on stable long-term footing. An important federal tax credit, although not currently active, is likely to be retroactively reinstated in future periods. And new commercial trucks utilizing cleaner-burning natural gas fuels are ready to hit the market. It could prove to be just the trifecta of catalysts Clean Energy Fuels needs to turn things around.

Or not.

It’s not an easy question to answer, but investors want to know: Where will Clean Energy Fuels by in three years? Let’s take a level-headed look at the path forward.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Raising prices in emerging markets to combat this sluggish volume isn’t easy at present. In Colgate-Palmolive’s largest geographical segment, Latin America, brisk economic growth over the last four quarters has tampered the high inflation experienced in the region, thus curtailing the ability of CPGs to hike prices. For those who are interested, I’ve described this phenomenon in more detail recently in regards to competitor Unilever (NYSE: UL).

    Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked. It’s just a matter of time.

Hot Low Price Stocks For 2019

Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) has made a lot of efforts in pricing its goods attractively over the past months. This allowed for strong traffic growth, which resulted in positive comps for the company. Subsequently, Wal-Mart’s shares have been performing much better than those of its peers, which are reporting worse comp sales. Due to Wal-Mart’s power when it comes to discussing prices with its suppliers, the company is able to price its goods attractively whilst generating strong margins, which, in turn, means that the earnings power of Wal-Mart remains high (despite the low prices Wal-Mart offers its goods at), which makes Wal-Mart a compelling retail investment.

The last time I wrote about Alibaba (BABA) was in June 2015 in the article titled:

Alibaba: Turnaround in Play, Current Stock Strength Will Continue

At the time the article was written, the stock was trading at about $90, since then the price increased about 88%. Alibaba is achieving strong year-over-year revenue and earnings increases. I see plenty of further growth ahead for the company, which is likely to drive the stock for more market outperforming gains.

Alibabas Growth Drivers

Alibaba is achieving strong revenue growth from the commerce business, which increased 58% in Q1 and comprises 85% of the companys total revenue. What I like about Alibabas commerce business is that it is spread out among millions of merchants and consumers. Therefore, the company is similar to Amazon (AMZN) since it doesnt depend on sales of a small product mix.

The reason why I think Alibaba still has plenty of growth left is a result of how CEO, Jack Ma, is steering the company. Due to higher demand for U.S. products from consumers in China, Jack Ma launched an online network known as Taobao Global U.S. Merchants Network that will link small and medium sized U.S. businesses with 500 million consumers in China. Thats more people than the entire population of the U.S., which stands at about 325.7 million.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham valuation model, I have selected the 10 lowest PEmg (price to normalized earnings) companies. Each company has been determined to be undervalued and suitable for the Defensive Investor according to the ModernGraham approach.

Defensive Investors are defined as investors who are not able or willing to do substantial research into individual investments, and therefore need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk.

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY)

Bed Bath & Beyond qualifies for both the Defensive Investor and the Enterprising Investor. The Defensive Investor is only initially concerned with the poor dividend history. The Enterprising Investor is only concerned with the lack of dividends. As a result, all value investors should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

    Interpublic is our income play in our media universe. While other stocks we cover offer a higher yield than IPG’s 2.1%, the company’s double digit EPS growth projections for 2016 (following an estimated 18% in 2015) will also likely be a driver of outperformance for the year. While results can be somewhat volatile for IPG, we would point to record new business win backlog this year, which improves our conviction that the better than average recent organic revenue growth trends will continue next year. At 18x our 2016 EPS estimate, we find IPG shares attractive at current levels for another projected year of healthy double digit total returns.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market.

    Finally, investors will continue to monitor ongoing developments in Washington around the presidency of Donald Trump. The White House has asked a federal judge to block prosecutors from reviewing any files seized from his lawyer’s office during a raid by the FBI last week.

The spat between the White House and the FBI continues a day after former FBI Director James Comey called Trump “morally unfit to be president.”
