Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2019: Brookfield Renewable Powerr Fund(BEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Scott Levine]

    Instead of a yieldco perhaps a master limited partnership like Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE:BEP). which also secures PPAs will pique investors’ interests. With 876 generating facilities, including hydroelectric, wind, solar, and storage, Brookfield Renewable Partners has a portfolio of projects that represents 17,400 MW of installed capacity. Looking ahead, the company targets annual investments of $600 million to $700 million in high-quality assets, which will provide 12% to 15% returns on investment. Similar to Pattern Energy, Brookfield returned more than 90% of its CAFD to shareholders in 2017; however, unlike Pattern Energy, Brookfield Renewable Partners identifies a long-term payout ratio of 70% from its CAFD. Of greater appeal to conservative investors may be the fact that the company maintains an investment-grade balance sheet based on credit ratings from both Standard & Poor’s and DBRS.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    A driving factor of the company’s ability to self-fund growth is the dramatic improvement of its financial profile. One evidence of this is that “following the closing of the Saeta transaction, Moody’s upgraded our corporate credit rating from B1 to Ba3,” according to CFO Matthew Berger. That’s due in part to the fact that the company decided to issue more equity than initially expected to finance the deal so that it could improve its financial metrics more quickly. That stock, which it sold to Brookfield Asset Management and its affiliate Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP), helped reduce TerraForm Power’s corporate debt-to-cash flow ratio toward its 4.0 to 5.0 times target range. That puts the company within striking distance of receiving another credit upgrade to an investment-grade rating, which is TerraForm’s goal.

Two stocks you should be looking at today are Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P.’s (NYSE:BEP) and NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), both of which have secret weapons as they grow in the hot renewable power space.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2019: Tallgrass Energy Partners, LP(TEP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Earlier this year, Tallgrass Energy GP (NYSE:TEGP) agreed to acquire its master limited partnership, Tallgrass Energy Partners (NYSE:TEP) in an all-stock deal. This transaction is one of many similar ones in the sector over the past few years as energy infrastructure companies have had to grapple with the fallout of the oil market downturn. Like the deals before it, and those announced afterward, the transaction will create one stronger entity that’s well positioned to grow in the coming years while still offering income-seeking investors a generous income stream. That income with upside makes Tallgrass a stock that investors will want to keep on their radar, especially considering the strength of its financial profile.

Let’s start with what’s going on with PNC Bank in general right now. The reason we picked PNC Bank to begin with is because after doing that [U.S. Bancorp] (NYSE: USB) episode last week, which, if you want to link to that, I’m happy to send it. Maxfield finally published that article on the Richard Davis interview. If you emailed me about that, I’m going to email you back as soon as the show is over and send that to you. If anyone else wants that article, I’m more than happy to email it to you. Our email is industryfocus@fool.com.

One of the main goals of my premium newsletter High-Yield Investing is stability. I like industries that don’t go through unpredictable hot and cold cycles. Student Transportation (NYSE: STB) is a textbook example.

Millions of kids must travel to and from school each day, rain or shine. With a national fleet of school buses and a stack of contracts with various school districts, the company generates consistent, recurring income to share with its stockholders. That, along with its current yield of 5.9%, is why STB remains one of my readers’ favorite stocks.

My next recommendation enjoys similar stability thanks to another fact of life — babies.

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.
