North Dakota-based Weather Modification International uses planes to target clouds and draw out more rain from them.

The concept, called cloud seeding, has been around for decades. But there is new urgency due to climate change and a rapidly growing global population, which have disrupted global water supplies.

By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

Weather Modification describes cloud seeding as “an enhancement” of the natural precipitation process. The technology makes storms more efficient by getting additional moisture out of clouds.

“If there [are] no clouds in the sky that have any moisture in them, then we can’t do anything,” Brian Kindrat, an aircraft captain at Weather Modification, told CNNMoney’s Rachel Crane. “What we can do is tap into what is there and assist mother nature.”

    Shares of CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), a global communications and IT services company, fell 13.9% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after the company reported its fourth-quarter 2018 results. Investors weren’t happy that the company’s revenue declined on a year-over-year basis and that it posted a loss — and they really didn’t like the fact that CenturyLink cut its annual dividend.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo, Chuck Saletta, and Daniel Miller]

    That’s not always the case, though. An above-average yield can also be an indicator that all’s not right for a business. Carefully selecting which stocks make the cut as part of a high-yield portfolio is an important step. Three Foolish contributors are here to help. They think CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI), and Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) are worth considering.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

What happened

Shares of natural gas and renewable natural gas provider Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) are up 25.1% at 12:25 p.m. EDT on March 13, following the release of the company’s fourth-quarter and full-year 2018 financial results yesterday after market close. 

The company reported revenue and earnings numbers that both came in ahead of analyst expectations. Fourth-quarter revenue was $96.2 million, up 8% from last year, while GAAP net income came in at $6.9 million, compared to a $28.3 million net loss in the year-ago period. On a per-share basis, that works out to $0.03 earnings per share, while most analysts who cover the stock had projected a small loss.

So what

It isn’t just the solid revenue and GAAP earnings results that have Mr. Market excited today. Because natural gas commodity prices can swing wildly, looking at revenue alone doesn’t always show whether the company is actually growing.

    Another year, another teardown estimating the bill of materials (BOM) for the newest Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. Last year’s iPhone X was estimated at roughly $370 to build for a base 64 GB model. Investors often use these types of third-party BOM estimates as a way to gauge how profitable the new gadgets are, which has implications for the company’s gross margin. With the iPhone XS Max priced at $1,100 to $1,450, it has the potential to be incredibly profitable. However, the device does have the largest display that Apple has ever put into an iPhone, and it also uses expensive OLED technology.

Mnuchin and U.S. President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, announced that both nations have reached an agreement, one that established a framework to help address ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries. The prices of crude oil is in focus after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won reelection over the weekend. The election featured a very low turnout and a very large outcry that the vote was rigged. Maduro has a 75% disapproval rating and has been the face of the OPEC member’s widespread mismanagement and economic collapse. Prior to the election, a member of the Trump administration said that the United States would not recognize the authenticity of the election. The United States is considering additional sanctions on Venezuela. Today is a major day for mergers and acquisition activity.

    British Columbia and Alberta have chosen a different strategy where retail sales will be allowed through both public and private stores, similar to its current setup for liquor retail in the provinces. Retailers will have to get their supply of cannabis from the government’s wholesale distribution system, similar to how it works for alcohol now. The government will control online cannabis sales exclusively Our take: British Columbia also announced that physical retailing of cannabis and liquor will have to be separate, meaning stores cannot sell both products. This rule has an impact on existing liquor retailers aiming to convert some of their stores to sell cannabis. Aurora invested in Liquor Stores (renamed to Alcanna (OTCPK:LQSIF)) which has been struggling for years in the liquor business. Other pharmacy chains will also participate in the RFP as we have seen in Loblaw’s recent win in Newfoundland and Labrador. We think for many cannabis companies the path to winning those retail licenses will be a challenging one with the competition from multiple sources. The licenses will be hotly contested given that B.C. is the largest market to allow private retailing, leaving us cautious on those companies betting big on winning those contracts. The likely outcome is that a large number of companies will each win fewer contracts.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019

What a silly stock market. There I was on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. waiting for the Dow Jones Industrial Average to crash 1,700 points as Trump verbally ripped Iran to shreds (and pulled out of the Iran deal). The Dow instantly tanked 80 points one sentence into Trump’s latest global spectacle. But then the Blue Chip index rallied back as Trump continued to hit Iran, and actually finished the session higher. As a 15-year old would put it: #WTF.

For an already jittery market to be able to shrug off major news of this kind is nicely short-term bullish…or is it.

“Couple of thoughts. First, there’s genuine confusion right now about the value of strength. We like strength in employment because there’s no real wage inflation. We like strength in commodities because it means the world’s not slowing down. And we like strength in consumer spending like we heard last night in Disney (DIS) and we have been hearing for weeks now in earnings season,” writes TheStreet’s founder Jim Cramer over on RealMoney on the weird move in the markets Tuesday. In effect, we could be in a short-term good news is good news environment for stocks. That’s an environment where you load back up on cyclicals and hot tech names like Netflix (NFLX) (which could be acquired by Action Alerts PLUS holding Microsoft (MSFT) in within two years, reports TheStreet’s Katherine Ross).

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own For 2019: American Capital Agency Corp.(AGNC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    In particular, agency-only mortgage REITs tend to be a considerably safer bet during a rising interest rate environment. This would include Annaly Capital Management, which had $90.6 billion of its $101.8 billion in total assets invested in agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) as of Dec. 31, 2017, as well as AGNC Investment Corp. (NASDAQ:AGNC), which had $54.8 billion of its $69.3 billion investment portfolio tied up in agency MBSs. Though agency MBSs pay less given that they’re protected from default, it allows Annaly Capital Management and AGNC Investment Corp. to lean on leverage to generate income. As of their most recent quarters, Annaly and AGNC sported respective leverage of 6.6-to-1 and 8.2-to-1.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Mark Carney may be wondering at times if less is more when he speaks to financial markets.

After a bruising month that’s seen his own signals on interest rates questioned and one of his deputies forced to apologize for calling the economy menopausal, communication is once again a hot topic for the Bank of England governor.

Carney, who arrived at the BOE in 2013 with forward guidance as his signature policy, will come under more scrutiny this week when he faces a grilling from U.K. lawmakers. He’ll also give speeches in London and Stockholm.

“Some people would say the safest thing for the Bank of England to do right now is to go back to being mystical,” said Clea Bourne, a senior lecturer and financial communications specialist at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Communication dominated Carney’s press conference following the BOE’s May 10 policy announcement, and will doubtless figure in Tuesday’s session in Parliament. Carney and his colleagues will be questioned on the decision, which saw officials hold off on a rate hike that had been seen as a certainty just weeks earlier. Brexit and its impact on the economy will also probably feature at the hearing.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc.(PLAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matt Hogan]

    Casual-dining chains have not been winners during this economic expansion. Millenials, with their need for more social media-worthy experiences, have been blamed for the decline in conjunction with Baby Boomers moving onto fixed incomes as they retire.

    Dave & Buster's Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ: PLAY) provides an eat, drink, play, and watch experience for consumers. This hybrid entertainment/dining experience has fared well since going public in 2012, attracting higher-income adults in the 21-39 age range.
    Poor same-store sales last quarter knocked the premium off the stock price, but top and bottom-line growth were still strong. Margins and efficiency ratios top its competitors, and Wall Street and quant valuation models agree that there is a strong upside for this diamond in the casual-dining rough.

    You'll Probably Want to Sit Down for This

    Casual dining, the traditional sit-down, full-service restaurant experience is getting hit by demographics. Millennials want hip, social-media worthy experiences and retiring Baby Boomers are thrifty on their fixed incomes. Headlines such as "Millennials Are Killing Chains Like Buffalo Wild Wings And Applebee's" are not uncommon.

    Dave & Buster’s Entertainment (NASDAQ:PLAY), Habit Restaurants (NASDAQ:HABT), and Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group (NASDAQ:DFRG) are three stocks in this space that I feel offer healthy upside at current levels.

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, machinery, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019: Stryker Corporation(SYK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Finally, shares of Boston Scientific sank 6%. The medical device maker had jumped earlier in the week on reports that it might receive a takeover bid from industry peer Stryker (NYSE:SYK). Yet today, Stryker denied that it had been in acquisition talks with Boston Scientific, throwing cold water on the idea. With the downward push, Boston Scientific is now back to where the stock started the week before the reports surfaced in the first place. Boston Scientific will now apparently have to make the most of its own opportunities in the medical device space — at least unless another potential buyer comes around.

    However and pursuant to a master lease, 175 of the Company’s wholly-owned properties are leased to Sears Holdings Corp (NASDAQ: SHLD) and are operated under either the Sears or Kmart brand. The master lease provides the Company with the right to recapture certain space from Sears at each property for retenanting or redevelopment purposes. At 83 properties, third-party tenants under direct leases occupy a portion of leasable space alongside Sears and Kmart, and 37 properties are leased only to third parties. The Company also owns 50% interests in 28 properties through JV investments with GGP Inc., Simon Property Group, Inc., and The Macerich Company. A substantial majority of the space at the Company’s JV properties is also leased to Sears Holdings under master lease agreements that provide for similar recapture rights as the master lease governing the Company’s wholly-owned properties.

    Unlike the situation with rival Sears (NASDAQ:SHLD), J.C. Penney’s liabilities have not exceeded its assets. Each figure is about $8.3 billion, and the company has $181 million in cash on hand, about half what it had last year.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    To many investors, J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) stock looks like a guaranteed loser. For example, my Foolish colleague Timothy Green recently described the bull case for J.C. Penney being that it is failing more slowly than longtime rival Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD). Indeed, J.C. Penney posted weak sales and earnings results last quarter and slashed its full-year earnings-per-share forecast due to the implementation of new accounting rules.

This three-time recommendation from the Motley Fool looks a lot like Berkshire in 1992. Click here to learn more.

One of the main goals of my premium newsletter High-Yield Investing is stability. I like industries that don’t go through unpredictable hot and cold cycles. Student Transportation (NYSE: STB) is a textbook example.

Millions of kids must travel to and from school each day, rain or shine. With a national fleet of school buses and a stack of contracts with various school districts, the company generates consistent, recurring income to share with its stockholders. That, along with its current yield of 5.9%, is why STB remains one of my readers’ favorite stocks.

My next recommendation enjoys similar stability thanks to another fact of life — babies.

Hot Bank Stocks To Invest In Right Now

U.S. assets are becoming less attractive to foreign investors as hedging their dollar exposure has become more expensive of late, both because of interest-rate differentials and U.S. tax incentives to get U.S. companies to repatriate overseas cash, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts.

Evidence can especially be found in the foreign buying of corporate U.S. bonds, which doesnt look too rosy so far this month, the BAML report from Monday said.

    A long term performance chart shows shares of Hasbro, Inc largely trending upward while shares of peers like mid cap Mattel, Inc (NASDAQ: MAT) and small cap JAKKS Pacific, Inc (NASDAQ: JAKK) have largely trended downward:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    One under-$10 toy player that’s trending very close to triggering a major breakout trade is Jakks Pacific (JAKK), which is a producer and marketer of children’s toys and other consumer products. This stock has been destroyed by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 60%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Jakks Pacific, you’ll notice that this stock has been downtrending badly for the last two months and change, with shares plunging from its high of $11.75 to its recent low of $4.82 a share. During that downtrend, shares of JAKK have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of JAKK look like they might be ready to see an end to its downside volatility in the short-term if the recent lows can hold. I believe this due to the fact that JAKK has started to move sideways and trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JAKK if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.08 to $5.27 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 695,817 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JAKK will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.68 to its 50-day moving average at $6.07 a share. Any high-volume move above its 50-day will then put $7 to $8 into range for shares of JAKK.

    Traders can look to buy JAKK off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $4.87 to $4.82 a share. One can also buy JAKK off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

    Core Laboratories (NYSE:CLB) literally has its ear to the ground when it comes to deciphering what’s going on in the oil market. The company studies oil reservoirs, which tell it what’s happening with production, giving it a deep level of understanding on the supply side of the market. Core Labs takes what the reservoirs are saying, compares this with other data, and then blends it into an informed macro view of the oil market, which CEO David Demshur shared on the company’s recent quarterly earnings conference call. Here are five things he says the reservoirs are telling us about what’s really going on in the oil market.
