Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

For decades, OPEC has been able to hold over our heads the threat of cripplingly-high oil prices. With +30 million barrels per day of the world’s oil production, OPEC’s ability to manipulate the price of the commodity is undeniable.

This has led to a maddening amount of our foreign policy being dictated by the only product supplied by this Middle East cartel, thus giving OPEC nations a bizarre amount of global power relative to the influence these countries would have otherwise.

Thankfully, as I’m sure you are aware, the clock is ticking on the influence OPEC holds. That’s because the transition to electric cars is now full speed ahead which should significantly lessen the world’s oil demand.

Wonderful, right?

Not so fast.

The truth is, we may be trading in one essential commodity controlling cartel for another. Perhaps one that we like even less than OPEC…

    Often a high yield is an indication of a stock that’s facing some sort of trouble — but not always. If you take the time, you can find high-yield stocks worth buying if you look in the right places. For example, decidedly low-tech Lamar Advertising Company (NASDAQ:LAMR), beaten-up midstream player Magellan Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE:MMP), and renewable power-focused TerraForm Power, Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP) come from vastly different industries. However, each of these high-yield stocks has a solid business and good growth prospects.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Energy XXI Ltd.(EXXI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market was mostly higher on Monday, with market participants celebrating favorable economic news on the consumer front and looking forward to another round of positive earnings reports when third-quarter earnings season starts early next month.

Yet even with several major market benchmarks at or near record levels, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the gains today.

    Arrow Electronics (NYSE:ARW) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Arrow Electronics reported better-than-expected results for first-quarter 2018. The figures also came above the mid-point of the company’s guidance ranges and marked year-over-year improvement. Moreover, the electronic component distributor provided an optimistic guidance for second-quarter 2018. We believe that the company’s core strength in providing best-in-class services and easy-to-acquire technologies should drive growth in the long run. Moreover, the company has secured a significant market share through a broad portfolio of products and services, and continued efforts to maximize consumer satisfaction. Additionally, incremental sales from strategic acquisitions and partnerships are expected to boost the top line. However, an uncertain economic environment, high debt burden and competition remain the concerns. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry in the last one year.”

    Shen: Exactly. So, we looked at the theater operators and what they’re offering. There’s been some consolidation. One of the theater chains that we talked about on this similar show last year is no longer in the running as a public company in terms of the stocks. First, with Cinemark (NYSE:CNK), one of the two large remaining chains, it has an offering called Movie Club. This launched last year. $8.99 per month. What you get is one 2D ticket that rolls over if it’s unused. You can build those rollover tickets if you don’t go that often. Plus, 20% off concessions, and there’s no online fees for when you buy those tickets. Then, you can get up to two additional add-on tickets for $8.99 each.

    Only months after a standstill agreement between the two companies expired, biopharma giant Roche Holdings (NASDAQOTH:RHHBY) has agreed to acquire Foundation Medicine (NASDAQ:FMI) lock, stock, and barrel.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Energy XXI Ltd.(EXXI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market was mostly higher on Monday, with market participants celebrating favorable economic news on the consumer front and looking forward to another round of positive earnings reports when third-quarter earnings season starts early next month. Tax cuts have helped corporate earnings throughout 2018, and that’s generally helped to lift the overall market. Yet even with several major market benchmarks at or near record levels, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the gains today. Brown-Forman (NYSE:BF-B), Acorda Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ACOR), and Energy XXI Gulf Coast (NASDAQ:EXXI) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Owens Corning Inc(OC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That doesn’t mean individual investors can’t find stocks on the cheap, however. Some stocks are being unfairly dragged down by industry-specific concerns, while others have been caught in the crossfire of rising global trade tensions despite being relatively insulated against downside. That appears to be the case with construction material specialist Owens Corning (NYSE:OC), lithium producer Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), and water products leader A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS). Here are three stocks on sale that you can buy now.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) had also been up strong on Tuesday, but profit taking had its shares down 0.2% at $60.52 before the close. That is still a gain of 3.5% from last Friday’s close. BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BMCH) was up just 0.2% at $22.50 late on Tuesday after backing off of higher levels, but its shares have risen more than 2% since last Friday.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

Willamette Valley Vineyards (NASDAQ: WVVI) is a nano-cap winery located in Turner, Oregon. The company produces various mid end, premium, and ultra-premium wines including the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Ros茅 and Riesling varieties. We usually cover tech stocks but we are big fans of wine and even bigger fans of undervalued stocks; WVVI certainly fits the bill for both. WVVI has enjoyed tremendous average sales and EBITDA growth of 12.8% and 16% respectively for the past 3 years. During the same time period, investors have been met with a modest stock growth of 23.75% from $6.10 to $8 currently. With a market cap of only $40 million and a fair P/E of 22, we believe there is still undiscovered potential for this profitable company and its drought-free wine business.

The Economy of Wine

In the past 6 years, United States wine consumption has seen healthy growth from 336.3 million 9 liter cases in 2010 to 383.9 million 9 liter cases in 2015, This resulted in the total retail value of wine increasing from $46.5 billion in 2010 to $55.8 billion in 2015, a significant 20% growth rate. According to a recent report by goodfruits.com, this growth trend continued in 2016 as “September U.S. wine sales rose from $3.3 billion to $3.7 billion, helping set an annual pace to boost the industry’s overall retail value for the 11th consecutive year”. The prior three 5 year periods has seen total retail value increase by 8.8 billion (2001-2005), 5 billion (2006-2010) and 7.2 (2011-2015). We expect the wine market retail value to grow 1.5% (average growth of the last 3 years) in 2017 and surpass $62 billion by 2020. This growth in wine consumption is further fueled by the inauguration of Donald Trump, whose victory has left many oppositions drinking to a stupor. Under these conditions, we believe specialize vineyards like WVVI are going to earn steady and growing profits for years to come.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018: Critical Elements Corporation (CRECF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    ILC reminds me of Critical Elements [TSXV:CRE] (OTCQX:CRECF) having five projects (CRE has 11), and also of Galaxy Resources (ASX:GXY) (OTCPK:GALXF) by being diversified across brine and spodumene and across three continents. Also some similarity with Neo Lithium’s (OTC:NTTHF) [TSXV:NLC] early stage Argentinean brine project which I recently wrote about here. However, ILC trades at a much smaller market cap of US$8m to that of Critical Elements (US$85m) or Galaxy Resources (US$724m). This is partly due to ILC giving away significant percentages of their projects, and because they are still in the early stages of development.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Baker Hughes Incorporated(BHI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By William Patalon III]

    Since the moment it was announced, we’ve been highly bullish on the complicated-but-intriguing deal that would combine the oilfield services unit of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) and all of sector rival Baker Hughes Inc. (NYSE: BHI).

  • [By Wayne Duggan]

    While Loop maintains a Buy rating on all of the stocks mentioned above, Guggenheim analyst Michael LaMotte isn’t quite so bullish on the sector. Earlier this week, LaMotte downgraded the following oil services stocks from Buy to Neutral:

    Baker Hughes Incorporated (NYSE: BHI)
    Fairmount Santrol Holdings Inc (NYSE: FMSA)
    Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (NYSE: HP)
    Nabors Industries Ltd. (NYSE: NBR)
    Schlumberger Limited. (NYSE: SLB)
    Halliburton
    Superior Energy Services

    Guggenheim also cut its 2017 oil price forecast from $55 to $48/bbl.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Among the year-end numbers, there isn’t that much that pops out as extraordinary. Halliburton ended 2016 with a $6.69 per-share loss. Much of that loss, though, was the $7.4 billion in charges related to asset impairments, goodwill writedowns, and the $4.06 billion it had to charge for the termination of the merger with Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHI). So when looking at the company’s year-end results, do keep in mind that those are heavily skewed by one-time items that probably won’t have much of a material impact on the business in the coming year. Looking at operational income, we see that international markets held up rather well throughout the year, while the North American market suffered.

  • [By Arie Goren]

    The Oil and gas business represents a significant part of GE’s operations. Oil and gas segment revenues of $9.5 billion accounted for 10.5% of the company’s total revenues in the first nine months of 2016. In the same period in 2015, the segment’s revenues were much higher at $12.1 billion, 14.5% of GE’s total revenues for that period. In one of my previous articles about GE, I suggested that GE’s decision to combine its oil and gas business with one of the world’s leading oilfield services companies Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHI)is a smart move. Meanwhile, Brent crude oil price has climbed 20% from the beginning of 2016 to $55.45 per barrel, and WTI crude oil price has increased 17.5% to $52.37 per barrel in the same period. As such, the U.S. rig count has started to recover, and oil and gas producers have begun to increase their capital spending. According to Baker Hughes, the average U.S. rig count for December 2016 increased by 54 from the prior month to 634 rigs. This development will benefit GE in the current quarter and much more after the merger with Baker Hughes.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Devon Energy Corporation(DVN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The failure of Russia and others to fulfill their obligations are coming at a time when U.S. shale production is starting to ramp back up. Shale producers such as Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD) and Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) have already released growth-focused budgets to capture the benefits of an improving oil market. In Pioneer Natural Resources’ case, it expects to spend $2.8 billion this year to operate 18 drilling rigs in the Permian Basin and restart its drilling program in the Eagle Ford. Those rigs should enable the company to drill enough wells to grow its production by 15% to 18% over last year’s average. Meanwhile, Devon Energy expects to spend between $2 billion to $2.3 billion on drilling this year, which should fuel 13% to 17% oil production growth by the fourth quarter versus last year’s final quarter.

    While crude prices stumbled into 2016, they found their footing by mid-year and roared back to life, ending the year up about 42%. Those rising prices lifted most oil stocks. However, a handful of large-cap oil stocks rose above the crowd by outperforming crude’s rally. Those top-tier performers wereContinental Resources (NYSE:CLR), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD), and Cimarex Energy (NYSE:XEC):

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Earnings season will kick into high gear today with the release of multiple reports from three of the nation’s top financial institutions. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co.(NYSE: WFC), and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) will all be in the spotlight today. U.S. President Donald Trump could be shaking up trade policy. However, it isn’t NAFTA or tariffs with China that are headlining the story. According to reports, Trump has requested his advisors explore American reentry into the Transpacific Partnership (TPP). President Trump pulled the United States out of TPP shortly following his inauguration. The recommendation comes after lawmakers from ag-producing states discussed the impact of leaving the deal with the administration. The decision to reenter the TPP would be very valuable to states that produce the bulk of U.S. wheat given that it would allow exporters to avoid tariffs of $65 per tonne to Japan, which is the largest export market for American wheat. Leading nations of the pact, such as Japan and Australia, reacted coolly to the president’s pivot but did not rule out the possibility of American reentry. Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) is still in focus across the financial world. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress two times this week to address his firm’s ongoing data scandal involving consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Congress’ failure to understand how the Internet works and Facebook’s business model was on full display, but Zuckerberg was able to maintain his composure as he answered questions over the two-day period.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2018: United States Steel Corporation(X)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finished in the red Wednesday, with very modest losses in most major benchmarks. Even the release of a broad outline of the Trump administration’s tax reform plan wasn’t enough to spur too much excitement among investors, as some worry that the plan’s focus on corporate taxes and balanced approach toward individual income tax reform might not resonate with the bulk of the American public. Moreover, bad news from some sectors of the market helped to dampen excitement from earlier in the week, and U.S. Steel (NYSE:X), Seagate Technology (NASDAQ:STX), and Dr Pepper Snapple Group (NYSE:DPS) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    U.S. Steel (X) got a pop this morning, following China’s market. Since then, it’s been all downhill.

    Getty Images

    I’m not sure I can pinpoint a reason why. Base metals seemed to have a good day, with Comex Copper for April delivery having gained 2.7% to $2.675 per pound today, while nickel also gained.

    But U.S. Steel is getting killed, as are AK Steel (AKS), Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor (NUE). Can we chalk it up to Paul Ryan’s comments that tax reform could take longer than health care reform, which also seems to be tanking the overall market?

    Whatever it is, here is Axiom Capital’s Gordon Johnson on why he’s worried about steel imports:

    As we have stated previously, we feel President Trumps administration will likely resort to countervailing duties/tariffs to penalize the countries it deems are cheating (not 201/301 actions). However, given roughly 88 countries import steel into the US, we question how effective this approach will prove as many countries will simply re-route steel to the countries who can ship into the US, ultimately allowing the steel to find its way to our shores.

    Shares of U.S. Steel have slumped 3.5% to $32.70 at 3:47 p.m. today, while AK Steel has tumbled 4.9% to $6.84, and Steel Dynamics has dropped 3.4% to $34.10, and Nucor is off 1.4% to $59.62.

    The retail bubble, so dubbed by Urban Outfitters’ (URBN) CEO, claimed another victim today, as Express (EXPR) became the latest retailer to get hammered after releasing its earnings.

    Karlie Kloss!!! Getty Images

    It wasn’t the earnings, so much, as the guidance that’s sinking Express’s shares.Express reported a profit of 28 cents, in line with analyst forecasts, but predicted earnings of 65 cents to 73 cents in 2017, below forecasts for 82 cents, according to FactSet. Shares of Express have dropped 11% to $9.51 today, while Urban Outfitters fell 2.6% to $24.75. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) gained 1% to $42.38.

    MKM’s Roxanne Meyer sees tailwinds–and headwinds–for Express’s stock:

    There are several catalysts that have potential to support improving fundamentals, but more materially in 2H and beyond: 1) reduced SKU count (down 20% in women’s/10% in men’s), which means EXPR will be investing in greater depth instead of breadth; 2) benefits from new systems should begin to bear fruit in 2H; 3) potential sales lift from the loyalty program relaunch (realistically a 2H opportunity); 4) launch of petites online in spring and launch of a collection collaborated with Karlie Kloss in April (unclear as to how material a driver); and 5) lower IMU/AUC in 2H from sourcing initiatives. However, these are balanced by: 1) a down-trending Portofino tops collection, which we believe has historically been meaningful to 1Q results; 2) pressure from higher wages and incentive comp (will require a MSD comp to leverage SG&A); and 3) merchandise margin not expected to improve until 2H17, despite corrective actions to assortment (mainly driven by compares).

    Any wonder she rates it Neutral?

  • [By Peter Graham]

    “We previously suggested shares of Urban Outfitters Inc. (URBN) as a good long-term idea and although the stock hasn’t performed to expectations yet, we still believe this is one of the better specialty retail plays that will benefit from any unexpected strength this Holiday Season.”
