Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Apple is charging up its renewable energy credentials in China.

The iPhone maker said Thursday that it was launching a $300 million fund that will identify and invest in clean energy projects in the world’s second biggest economy.

Apple (AAPL) is partnering with 10 of its global suppliers for the fund, whose investments aim to generate enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of nearly one million homes in China.

China’s transformation into an economic powerhouse in recent decades has taken a toll on the country’s environment and its people’s health. Cracking down on pollution has become a priority for authorities, even if it crimps the country’s economic growth.

Environmental group Greenpeace has warned that electronics manufacturing uses a lot of energy in China and draws on polluting coal power stations.

Apple’s announcement of the new China fund is its latest move that’s likely to play well with the Chinese government. CEO Tim Cook frequently visits the country, and the company is setting up research and development centers there.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Mark Carney may be wondering at times if less is more when he speaks to financial markets.

After a bruising month that’s seen his own signals on interest rates questioned and one of his deputies forced to apologize for calling the economy menopausal, communication is once again a hot topic for the Bank of England governor.

Carney, who arrived at the BOE in 2013 with forward guidance as his signature policy, will come under more scrutiny this week when he faces a grilling from U.K. lawmakers. He’ll also give speeches in London and Stockholm.

“Some people would say the safest thing for the Bank of England to do right now is to go back to being mystical,” said Clea Bourne, a senior lecturer and financial communications specialist at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Communication dominated Carney’s press conference following the BOE’s May 10 policy announcement, and will doubtless figure in Tuesday’s session in Parliament. Carney and his colleagues will be questioned on the decision, which saw officials hold off on a rate hike that had been seen as a certainty just weeks earlier. Brexit and its impact on the economy will also probably feature at the hearing.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc.(PLAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matt Hogan]

    Casual-dining chains have not been winners during this economic expansion. Millenials, with their need for more social media-worthy experiences, have been blamed for the decline in conjunction with Baby Boomers moving onto fixed incomes as they retire.

    Dave & Buster's Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ: PLAY) provides an eat, drink, play, and watch experience for consumers. This hybrid entertainment/dining experience has fared well since going public in 2012, attracting higher-income adults in the 21-39 age range.
    Poor same-store sales last quarter knocked the premium off the stock price, but top and bottom-line growth were still strong. Margins and efficiency ratios top its competitors, and Wall Street and quant valuation models agree that there is a strong upside for this diamond in the casual-dining rough.

    You'll Probably Want to Sit Down for This

    Casual dining, the traditional sit-down, full-service restaurant experience is getting hit by demographics. Millennials want hip, social-media worthy experiences and retiring Baby Boomers are thrifty on their fixed incomes. Headlines such as "Millennials Are Killing Chains Like Buffalo Wild Wings And Applebee's" are not uncommon.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019

Private equity shops thought they saw a sure-fire way to make a buck: build dozens of new power plants fueled by cheap Appalachian natural gas to replace old coal-fired units.

It hasn’t quite turned out that way, at least not yet. Many of the new plants built in the last few years aren’t kicking off as much cash as the buyout firms had expected, according to bankers. There’s not enough demand to support the huge amount of additional new capacity, driving down electricity prices. And with President Donald Trump as a booster, shutdowns of coal haven’t come as quickly as anticipated while states are acting to keep nuclear plants open.

None of the new plants appear in danger of default, analysts said. But several plant owners are now using most of the extra cash they are generating to pay down debt.

Moreover, low prices and the results of a closely watched regional power-price auction scheduled for Wednesday could force many of the gas-fired plants built in the last five years to refinance their debt. At least one new U.S. plant, owned in part by an arm of private equity firm Ares Management LP, recently did so.

Hot Stocks To Own Right Now

Hope Hicks is the enigma of the Trump administration.

Hicks is the White House communications director and one of President Trump’s closest aides. Yet she has never given a TV interview. She is rarely quoted at all. She is the yin to Trump’s attention-grabbing yang.

And right now she’s in a terrible place for a press-shy person to be: In the middle of not one but two White House scandals.

Hicks, 29, has been dating Rob Porter, the Trump aide who resigned Wednesday after his two ex-wives accused him of domestic abuse.

The White House initially tried to weather the storm. When the Daily Mail called for comment before publishing its story on Tuesday, Hicks helped defend Porter — sources told CNN that she worked with other aides to craft a supportive statement that was put out in chief of staff John Kelly’s name.

The administration continued to defend Porter on Wednesday, even after photos of injuries from the alleged abuse were published by news outlets. Press secretary Sarah Sanders said Porter would not be leaving immediately. Observers wondered whether Hicks’ relationship with Porter was a factor.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Shares of Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD) have come a long way since I originally presented the idea as “undervalued with catalysts” at the end of 2016. In total I’ve written four update pieces since and the stock has continued to be a decent performer.

Figure 1: FOLD daily advanced chart (Source: Finviz Elite) (Disclosure: Contains affiliate link)

In premarket today, the stock is in the red by a bit over 2% on news that the company sold 19,354,839 shares at a price point of $15.50 per share. Gross proceeds are expected to total around $300 million. Underwriter option is for an additional 2,903,225 shares should it be exercised. Dilution of around 13% or so appears acceptable, and it’s worth noting that JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are serving as joint lead book-running managers while Cowen and Leerink Partners are acting as co-booking managers (Bank of America Merrill Lynch as lead co-manager). This type of investment banking participation bodes well, as does pricing which is at only a slight discount to the current share price. Keep in mind that the deal was originally for $250 million but then it was upsized to $300 million, another bullish sign.

    But much of that response may simply have been reflexive the so-called knee-jerk reaction to anything that threatens to raise prices. Companies that consume a lot of steel, like Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) and Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE), have not commented yet.

    And Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE) will share its most recent quarterly numbers on Wednesday. The consensus estimates call for $1.45 in EPS and $6.99 billion in revenue. Shares were last seen trading at $135.77, in a 52-week range of $91.33 to $136.69. The consensus price target is $132.37.

    We’ve bagged winners like the 64.3% return from Mastercard (NYSE: MA), 44.3% from Intel (Nasdaq: INTC), 38.9% from Deere (NYSE: DE) and even 101.8% from Skyworks Solutions (Nasdaq: SWKS). So it’s easy to see why this has become one of StreetAuthority’s most popular reports.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    I wrote bullishly about Deere (DE) back in December, and since then the stock has done…not much, gaining 4.8% to the S&P 500′s 4.1% rise. So I’ve tried to stay on top of the stock, both the bullish calls and the bearish ones–and today, I have another bear to add to the list. That would be JPMorgan’s Ann Duignan, who reiterated her Underweight rating on Deere today, as well as CNH Industrial (CNHI) and Agco (AGCO). She explains why:

    Getty Images

    NA retail sales of high HP tractors and combines have already fallen 48% and 58% from peak (2013), respectively; but demand only dipped below trend in 2015 after ~7 years above trend. More used equipment is being taken to auction, a positive in the long-run as dealer but a potential negative for residual values in the near term. In Europe, the European Commission expects total agricultural income to decline considerably in real terms over the next decade (-14%), mainly due to fairly low agricultural prices and increasing costs. Demand in SA is likely to remain volatile, though at least planted area continues to grow; a positive for equipment in the long term. Overall, we remain bearish on agriculture equipment names given current valuations and growing fundamental risks; we maintain our UW ratings on Deere,CNH Industrial and AGCO.

    Still, the technical set up on Deere, a key component of my argument, continues to look good–real good. Strategas Research Partners’ Chris Verrone explains:

    We also want to reiterate our bullish view on the agricultural commodities and the ag-related stocks (e.g., CF Industries Holdings (CF), Mosaic (MOS), Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan (POT), FMC (FMC), AGCO, Deere). Following sharp multi-year declines, trends continue to improve.

    And here’s the chart of Deere to prove it:
