Top Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Mention the word uranium and most likely weapons of mass destruction come to mind. While you can make plenty of jokes about investment returns in the event of nuclear war, choosing to diversify your portfolio with uranium mining stocks is certainly worth a closer look.

Azincourt Uranium Inc. (OTCBB: AZURF) (TSX: AAZ.V) the Canadian based resource company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration and development of uranium properties, recently announced that it has completed the acquisition of an option to gain an undivided 70-percent stake in a mining project in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan. This allows the mining company to increase exploration and production mining in a region known to be rich in base minerals.

The significance of this is twofold: as climate change continues to be a global issue, the demand for clean energy is rising. And as demand rises, so too does the number of nuclear reactors under construction worldwide. In China alone there were 20 nuclear reactors under construction at the end of March, 2017.

    Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, ETSY, CAT
    This morning, Swiss investment bank UBS Group AG (NYSE: UBS) announced a surprise downgrade for industrial machinery giant Caterpillar. Shares of CAT fell 3.5% after UBS flagged slowing construction demand around the world as a reason for the downgrade. The firm slashed its price target from $154 to $125. The new figure represents 8.3% downside from Tuesday morning’s price. UBS expects that its EPS will fall by a whopping 8% year over year due to limited development in new construction and oil-and-gas projects. Shares of Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) slumped more than 3.5% after the SEC asked a judge to hold CEO Elon Musk in contempt of court. The SEC says that Musk violated his recent deal after promoting an inaccurate tweet about the company’s production. The CEO said in a tweet that Tesla would produce “around” a half-million vehicles in 2019. However, four hours later, Musk clarified by saying that he “meant to say” that Tesla’s annualized production rate by the end of the year could reach 500,000. The SEC says that Musk failed to seek or receive pre-approval for this tweet. The agency says that the inaccurate tweet reached more than 24 million people. Shares of Etsy Inc. (NASDAQ: ETSY) rallied more than 10% after the company topped Wall Street earnings expectations after the bell Monday. The e-commerce firm rang in EPS of $0.32 on top of $200 million in revenue. Both figures topped Wall Street expectations, which included EPS of $0.21 on top of $195 million in revenue. The firm reported a big jump in active buyers – 18.2% year over year – and a 9.4% jump in active sellers during the same period. Look for earnings reports from Cheniere Energy Inc.

    Shares of Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) recently surged to a three-year high after the apparel retailer’s fourth quarter numbers topped Wall Street’s expectations. Its revenue declined 2% annually to $1.53 billion, but beat estimates by $50 million. On a constant currency basis, its revenues fell 7%. Its adjusted earnings rose by a penny to $0.90, topping estimates by seven cents.

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Ralph Lauren outperformed the industry in the past six months backed by robust bottom-line performance in recent quarters. Notably, third-quarter fiscal 2018 marked the company’s 12th consecutive earnings beat while sales lagged estimates after a beat in the previous quarter. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Also, the company has been gaining from favorable geographic and channel mix shifts along with lower promotions and reduced product costs. Further, management adjusted fiscal 2018 outlook to account for the positive currency rates, which are likely to aid revenues and operating margins. However, its North America business continues to suffer due to distribution and brand exits, planned reduction in shipments and promotions to enhance the quality of sales, and lower customer demand.”

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019

What’s particularly interesting about the alliance of Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), JP Morgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) is its relationship to business basics.

Despite various efforts, the healthcare costs in the U.S. continue to grow. According to the CMS, the spending is forecasted to go from $3.5 trillion in 2017 to $5.7 trillion in 2026. There are many reasons for this: fraud, waste, complex regulations, special interests, just to name a few.

Yet the fact is that many businesses are feeling the pressures. For the most part, the growth trends somehow need to be muted. At the same time, there needs to be more of a focus on quality outcomes.

The Amazon, JPM Berkshire group pools together a workforce of over 1.2 million. And yes, these companies have some of the world’s best business leaders: Jeff Bezos, Jamie Dimon and Warren Buffett. They have all had transformative impacts on society.

Basically, it seems like a pretty good bet that they should be able to come up with a compelling strategy.

Best China Stocks To Watch For 2019

When you look at Tuesday’s market action, it’s clear what matters most, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers. No, it’s not earnings, or the Federal Reserve. It’s China. Last night’s calming words from Chinese President Xi Jinping took the market right back to 2017, before the words “tariff” and “trade war” loomed in the investing conversation.

Xi’s comments on a more open China sent shares of Boeing (BA) and Caterpillar (CAT) up 3.8% and 3.5% while Apple (AAPL) , an Action Alerts PLUS holding, rose by 1.8%.

Beyond China, the markets also rewarded Facebook (FB) with a gain of 4.5% as CEO Mark Zuckerberg answered questions before Congress in a coherent and respectful manner. Facebook allowed the other FANG stocks to rally, with Amazon (AMZN) and Netflix (NFLX) both ending the day higher, along with most of Cramer’s “cloud kings” like Workday (WDAY) , up 2.6%, and Red Hat (RHT) jumping 3.5%.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

What happened

Shares of natural gas fuel supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) jumped as much as 12% in trading Tuesday as oil prices continued to help push the stock higher. At 3:30 p.m. EDT shares were near their high for the day, trading 11.6% higher.

So what

The ups and downs of crude oil trading can often drive Clean Energy Fuels’ stock and that appears to be what’s happening today. Midday, oil prices spiked on news that the Trump Administration would ban all oil imports from Iran by Nov. 4, 2018. WTI Crude Oil is trading 3.5% higher at $70.45 per barrel and Brent Crude is currently up 2.2% to $76.34 per barrel.

Since Clean Energy Fuels’ natural gas products are a direct competitor to diesel, which comes from crude oil, when oil prices rise it makes natural gas more competitive. For today, investors are speculating that rising oil prices will eventually help the company’s financials.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer, Travis Hoium, and Chuck Saletta]

    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-techLamar Advertising Company (NASDAQ:LAMR), beaten-up midstream playerMagellan 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.

    Crude prices recovered sharply from the profit-taking that we saw ahead of yesterday’s news events, and it is in the Saudis’ best interest to maintain higher market prices as long as the Saudi Aramco deal remains in the future. That said, the U.S. dollar continues to strengthen versus the greenback’s peers, and that could act as a weight upon all commodity prices if that condition were to persist.

    You’ve heard all about the bottlenecks in domestic distribution. Now, you’ve heard Secretary Mnuchin talk about production. Still, we have to get this stuff to market.

    The mood was negative on Wall Street on Wednesday, and most major benchmarks finished in the red. Strength in the technology sector wasn’t enough to lift more cyclically focused benchmarks like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the combination of an attack on Saudi Arabia that sent oil prices higher and some disquieting readings on the inflation front kept investors from feeling more confident about stocks going into earnings season. In addition, some individual companies had bad news that sent their shares lower. Analogic (NASDAQ:ALOG), QuinStreet (NASDAQ:QNST), and MSC Industrial Direct (NYSE:MSM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
