Best Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

What happened

Shares of natural-gas-for-transportation supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE) are up 10.2% at 2:47 p.m. EDT on August 9. Today’s surge follows a bad day on August 8, when shares finished down 11% following the release of the company’s second-quarter financial results after market close. 

So what

Today’s big jump is interesting, considering that there really isn’t any corresponding news that could be the catalyst. The company didn’t make any announcement, there are no published Wall Street analyst upgrades of the stock, and there aren’t any of the other usual suspects, such as rising oil prices. 

If there’s a “best guess” reason why shares are moving up today, it’s that some investors are seeing the positives that really outweighed any negatives from the company’s second-quarter earnings report. Clean Energy ended the quarter with more cash than debt, more improvement in lowered expenses, improved gross margins, and a clear path toward growth, with multiple catalysts set to drive adoption of natural gas in the heavy-trucking industry.

Nutanix Stock Rallies HardDriven By A Host Of Factors

Flickr

Shares of San Jose, California-based Nutanix Inc (NSDQ:NTNX)gained by a massive 13.29% on Thursday. A host of reasons seem to have triggered the spike, backed by higher than average volumes. For starters, there has been a lot of positive news flow, including a slew of extremely bullish reports. In fact,NTNX stock is still trading below the consensus price target, even after Thursday’s rally.

Thespike also coincides with the formation of some bullish trends if you go by technical indicators, and it’s possible that traders might have used the opportunity to initiate long positions in the stock. Last but not the least, given the spike in short interest lately, it seems very likely that the stock rose, at least in part, due to short unwinding. We’ll look at each of these factors in detail, starting with the recent news flow.

Hot Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now: Broadcom Corporation(BRCM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Susquehanna reported on Tuesday that it has raised its rating on Broadcom Corporation (BRCM).

    The firm has upgraded BRCM from “Neutral” to “Positive,” and has lifted the company’s price target from $33 to $35. This price target suggests a 23% upside from the stock’s current price of $26.91.

    Analyst Chris Caso commented: “Our downgrade of BRCM in May was predicated on already high Street expectations on handsets and no notable improvement in networking to drive upside. We think expectations and the stock price have now been sufficiently reset ahead of what we expect to be catalysts in 2014 including the iPhone 6 product cycle, potential improvement in networking and the impact from the recent Renesas acquisition. In addition, after several years of overspending on their handset initiatives, we think we are now closer to the point where the company either captures a return on that investment or is forced to moderate spending either of which benefit profitability. We see the upcoming December analyst meeting as a potential intermediate catalyst.”

    Broadcom shares were up 38 cents, or 1.41%, during pre-market trading Tuesday. The stock is down 19% YTD.
