Top Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

Ever since Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) purchased Spectra Energy early last year, Spectra Energy Partners (NYSE:SEP) has been the best-performing subsidiary in its portfolio — and last quarter, it posted yet another set of solid results. For investors in Spectra Energy Partners, though, these strong earnings may be all for naught, as Enbridge is preparing to roll all of its subsidiaries up into the parent company in a way that may not be particularly beneficial to shareholders.

Let’s take a look at Spectra’s most recent results, why Enbridge is fully merging Spectra into itself, and why investors might not be too excited about the current buyout offer.

Over the past 10 years, investors who’ve been willing to look at smaller companies have seen much stronger returns than those who’ve stuck with the tried-and-true big names that are more familiar to them. When you look at exchange-traded funds tracking indexes composed of companies of different sizes SPDR S&P 500 (NYSEMKT: SPY) for large companies, SPDR S&P Midcap 400 (NYSEMKT: MDY) for midsize companies and SPDR S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSEMKT: SLY) for small companies you can put a number on just how much better smaller stocks have done:

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

One of the joys of investing in stocks is watching dividend payments roll in quarter after quarter. Giant capital gains from growth stocks may be more exciting, but a reliable and growing stream of dividend payments, reinvested in more stocks, unleashes the true power of compounding. Dividends have accounted for nearly half of the total return of the S&P 500 Index over the past 25 years. You ignore them at your own peril.

If you’re looking to add some solid dividend stocks to your portfolio, I have a few ideas. International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), General Motors (NYSE:GM), and Best Buy (NYSE:BBY), all of which I own in my own portfolio, are some of the best dividend stocks available.

A string of bad news

Shares of IBM have dropped about 15% since peaking earlier this year, driven down by a weaker-than-expected first quarter and news that Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway had sold a substantial portion of its stake. IBM’s transformation is showing signs of progress, with adjusted earnings expected to return to growth this year. But five straight years of revenue declines wasn’t what Buffett was expecting.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: CBRE Clarion Global Real Estate Income Fund(IGR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    CBRE Clarion Global Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE: IGR)
    A long time StreetAuthority staple, mainly in the Daily Paycheck portfolio, IGR is considered a core real estate fund. As the “global” in its name implies, the fund takes a broad approach, with just 41% of the fund’s holdings allocated to U.S. REITs. Property-type diversification is also broad with just a 24% allocation to the worrisome retail sector. Shares trade at a nearly 12% discount to their net asset value (NAV) at around $7.80 with a yield approaching 7.7%.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019: Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.(NCLH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NCLH) is a global cruise company. The Company operates the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands. The Company had 25 ships with approximately 50,400 Berths, as of May 1, 2017. The Company’s brands offer itineraries to various destinations around the world, including Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Africa, Canada, Bermuda, Caribbean, Alaska and Hawaii.

    Meanwhile, TheStreet will drop a podcast with Carnival Corp. (CCL) CEO Arnold Donald this weekend. Donald and I talked Wednesday afternoon about his rise to the top gig at Carnival and overall cruise line industry trends. Similar to what I learned from talking to Norwegisn Cruise Line (NCLH) CEO Frank Del Rio last week, I came away thinking Carnival is also undervalued here (stock is down 5% this year). While there are a good number of new ships hitting waters in 2019 and beyond, the consumer demand is such that more ships are warranted. Risks: surging oil prices (it takes a lot of fuel to run a cruise ship) and a recession (meaning somewhat empty new ships).

What is ‘Internal Rate Of Return – IRR’

Internal rate of return (IRR) is a metric used in capital budgeting measuring the profitability of potential investments. Internal rate of return is a discount rate that makes the net present value (NPV) of all cash flows from a particular project equal to zero. IRR calculations rely on the same formula as NPV does.

The following is the formula for calculating NPV:

where:

Ct= net cash inflow during the period t

Co= total initial investment costs

r = discount rate, and

t = number of time periods

To calculate IRR using the formula, one would set NPV equal to zero and solve for the discount rate r, which is here the IRR. Because of the nature of the formula, however, IRR cannot be calculated analytically, and must instead be calculated either through trial-and-error or using software programmed to calculate IRR.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate.
