Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Energy can be a tough area to invest in, with volatile commodity prices from one month to the next and energy usage changing around the world. Even formerly safe utilities aren’t anymore after California utility PG&E went bankrupt. 

To navigate the industry, three Motley Fool contributors got their heads together to lay out why NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), Vivint Solar (NYSE:VSLR), and Ensco (NYSE:ESV) are the three top energy stocks to buy. They’re very different companies on the surface, but the theme among all three is value in their respective industries.

A consistent outperformer

Matt DiLallo (NextEra Energy): Leading utility NextEra Energy recently put the finishing touches on another strong year. Thanks to its continued investments in clean energy, the company was able to grow its adjusted earnings by 15% while boosting its dividend by 13%. Those two factors helped it deliver a total return of more than 14% last year, beating both the market and its peer group by a wide margin. That continued the company’s stretch of outperforming the market, which it has done for the past decade.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Southern Company (SO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) took a beating on Wednesday, and the gap down of 2% more to $46.09 on Thursday’s opening bell had seen shares recover to a loss of just 0.4% at $46.72 shortly before noon. Barclays downgraded the shares to Equal Weight from Overweight and cut its target price to $48 from $51. Guggenheim lowered its rating to Neutral from Buy and lowered its price target from $50 to $47. Credit Suisse downgraded it to Underperform from Neutral with a $43 price target.

We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their profitability, valuation, dividends, earnings, analyst recommendations, institutional ownership and risk.

    Many major utilities are now ramping up investments in cost-saving, margin-boosting energy efficiency programs. In fact, there’s a strong correlation between the most ambitious renewable energy investment strategies and energy efficiency programs. Some utilities have a lot of catching up to do.  

    Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) has saved 13,000 GWh of electricity consumption across its network over the years, including 9,000 GWh since 2005. The company has an ambitious plan to retire coal-fired power plants and build new wind and solar power capacity, which, when coupled with energy efficiency, could allow it to generate 45% of its electricity from renewables in 2027. Additionally, fuel-related expenses would drop from 47% of capital investments in 2010 to just 28% in 2027. That would free up more cash flow for dividends or growth projects — or both. PG&E (NYSE:PCG) recently filed a plan to retire an aging fossil fuel power plant with distributed solar and energy efficiency programs, as discussed on a recent quarterly conference call with investors. The utility also offers some of the most ambitious customer rebates in the country, with up to $5,500 per household. Southern Company (NYSE:SO) has saved 2,700 GWh of electricity consumption across its network since 2000. By 2020, it will have invested $1 billion total in energy efficiency programs, although that lags well behind more ambitious peers. Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) was ranked second to last among all utilities in the country in energy efficiency by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. That leaves plenty of room for improvement. A recent report suggests it’s possible to reduce new home energy consumption in Virginia (the company’s home state) by 60%, saving the utility billions in capital investments in the next decade by avoiding the need to build new facilities. Those efforts could also save customers $1.7 billion, but the utility’s most recent plan does not prioritize energy efficien

    BrightView Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BV) entered the market quietly in its initial public offering (IPO). The stock initially saw a slight gain compared to the announced pricing but quickly fell flat.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Below is Renaissance Capital’s list of the second quarter’s 10 largest IPOs ranked by deal size. We’ve also included the stock’s first-day pop (or decline) and its return as of the most recent close. Spotify Technology S.A. (NYSE: SPOT) is not included because its IPO was a direct offering that did not raise any new cash. Spotify shares popped nearly 13% on the April offering date, and the return to date is 27%.

    AXA Equitable Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EQH): $2.75 billion; first-day pop of 1.7%; return to date: 1.3% GreenSky LLC (NASDAQ: GSKY): $874 million: pop of 1.6%; return of −7.9% BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BJ): $638 million; pop and return of 29.4% DocuSign Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU): $629 million; pop of 37.0%; return of 83.0% Pivotal Software Inc.

    Looking ahead to the third quarter, Renaissance Capital notes 65 companies currently in the IPO pipeline looking to raise $11 billion. Real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield is the both the largest potential IPO ($500 million) and the largest based on trailing 12-month sales ($7.23 billion). The pipeline is again heavy on health care offerings (11), industrials (five), financials (five) and, in a bit of a comeback, energy (four).

    The companies best in position to take advantage of this trend are Boeing (NYSE:BA), Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC), Harris (NYSE:HRS), and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN).

    For sure, the major defense stocks will all benefit. Names like Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT), Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC), Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN), and Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) are all solid plays on the growth in defense spending.

    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. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    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 agency seized a trove of documents from lawyer Michael Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into a payment of hush money. 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.”

    BP Midstream Partners has agreed to acquire interests in three assets from BP in a transaction valued at $468 million. The first asset is Mardi Gras, a joint venture (JV) with Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B) and its MLP, Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), which operates four offshore pipelines. BP Midstream already owned 20% of BP’s interest in the JV but will now hold 65% of that stake. It’s an important system that the partners have recently expanded so that it can support their new projects in the Gulf. They include Shell’s Appomattox platform, which should start up next year, and BP’s Thunder Horse North West Expansion, Atlantis Phase three, and Mad Dog 2, which will begin in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.

    There’s an interesting dichotomy here, however. Crestwood was looking to stay financially disciplined, but it also needed to invest to grow. Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019: Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc.(CCO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    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. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    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 agency seized a trove of documents from lawyer Michael Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into a payment of hush money. 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.”

Hot Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019: Yandex N.V.(YNDX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Smith]

    On Monday, the Russian RTS stock index plunged more than 11% in value, taking many of the “Russia stocks” most closely associated with the country along with it. Shares of both Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) and Public Joint-Stock Company Mobile TeleSystems (NYSE:MBT) were down between 12% and 13%, while Veon Ltd (NASDAQ:VEON) has shed 18%.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Monday was a positive day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks jumped following an uneventful weekend, tapering their gains as the session came to a close. Some had feared that China might retaliate once again after the U.S. issued a second round of tariffs against the nation with the world’s second-largest economy, but the expected fireworks didn’t come, putting market participants more at ease. The beginning of earnings season in the next week will also distract investors from geopolitical issues, perhaps allowing indexes to climb further. Yet some individual stocks had difficulties that sent their shares lower. Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), Menlo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MNLO), and MGIC Investment (NYSE:MTG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    U.S. investors often avoid Russian stocks due to the political risks, sanctions, and currency issues associated with the once-hot emerging market. But despite those challenges, there’s one Russian growth stock that doubled over the past two years — Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), which created the country’s top search engine.

As of May 15th, there was short interest totalling 6,205,638 shares, a growth of 52.4% from the April 30th total of 4,070,641 shares.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In Right Now

(Editor’s note: There is much greater liquidity on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under ticker Z01).

The Elevator Pitch

Zooplus (OTC:ZOPLY) (OTC:ZLPSF) is the leading online retailer of pet food and supplies in Europe. Generally, in a commoditized market such as selling pet food, the lowest cost provider with the best customer service has the “right to win”. We believe that Zooplus will be this winner, given its structural cost advantage versus its competitors (which we explore below). Additionally, customer satisfaction is extremely high, and we can clearly see customers’ appreciation for the company’s value proposition, as evidenced by the 94% sales retention rate. These unbeatable low prices and high customer satisfaction have led to a 31% annualized sales growth rate since 2010, while still possessing a long runway for continued expansion.

We believe the market is underestimating the long-term earnings power of the firm and consequently significantly undervaluing the company. For instance, the stock is currently trading at 0.9x 2016 sales while comparable acquisitions have taken place at 2-6x multiples. Additionally, we believe at maturity, the business will have normalized operating margins of 8-10%, implying a valuation of ~10x normalized EBIT.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    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.

SYSCO Corporation (NYSE: SYY) and US Foods Holding Corp (NYSE: USFD) are likely safe as Amazon won’t move into the foodservice distribution space which is very different from serving individual customers.
