Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

The oil and gas industry has been a strange market lately. Even though the price of oil is up close to 40% over the past year, the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEMKT:XLE), which is comprised largely of oil and gas companies, is up just 17%. While a 17% return is impressive in its own right, it is still well below the gains of crude oil. While it’s not a surefire sign that the industry is undervalued, it does suggest that those willing to sift through the industry could find some deals as oil hovers around $70 a barrel.

So we asked three of our Motley Fool contributors to each highlight a stock they see as a buy in the oil and gas industry right now. Here’s why they picked ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), and Phillps 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP). 

XLE price change. Data source: YCharts.

Don’t overlook the long-term potential

Tyler Crowe (ExxonMobil): ExxonMobil has historically been one of the best in the oil business thanks to incredibly disciplined capital allocation. For decades, the market has assigned the company a premium to its peers because it has consistently produced higher rates of return. Recently, though, the company made a few decisions that have made investors question Exxon’s reputation. Its 2010 acquisition of XTO Energy was probably an overpay for mostly shale gas assets and its involvement in extremely expensive projects like Kashagan in Kazakhstan and Gorgon LNG in Australia have lowered return rates.

    Wall Street continued its downward streak on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling more than 100 points. Most major benchmarks fell more modestly, with a few actually poking into positive territory on the day. Trade-sensitive stocks were among the weakest as investors focused on uncertainty related to tariff disputes between the U.S. and China. But for some other companies, bad news of a different sort was responsible for the drops in their shares. Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB), Baytex Energy (NYSE:BTE), and Catalyst Biosciences (NASDAQ:CBIO) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Pretium Resources, Inc.(PVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting triple-digit losses even as broader benchmarks had much smaller moves. Market participants largely focused their attention on the inflation front, as March consumer price index numbers showed a 0.2% rise in the core rate excluding food and energy. Year-over-year price changes have accelerated, seemingly giving the Federal Reserve more justification to continue raising interest rates. Yet even though many stocks generally react unfavorably to inflation fears, there were some big gainers that had good news. Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT), Pretium (NYSE:PVG), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2019

At the end of 2017, I sounded a bullish tone on fast-food operator Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM). The parent company of fast-food staples KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell appeared to be on a winning track with its re-franchising efforts and global growth strategy.

YUM stock also appeared undervalued given forthcoming tax reform and consistently positive comparable sales growth.

But that was all before Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG) stole Taco Bell’s Chief Executive Officer Brian Niccol.

Believe it or not, that is a game changer. Niccol is largely credited with turning around the Taco Bell business and making it a trendy dining option popular among millennials, and with good reason. He had been at Taco Bell since 2011, and with him at the company, Taco Bell went from a business with negative comps to a business with consistently positive comps.

That is why YUM stock has failed to rally despite a broader market rebound. The S&P 500 is 5% off its recent highs. YUM stock is nearly 10% off recent highs.

    The stock market finished lower on Friday, with triple-digit losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and modest declines of as much as half a percent for other major benchmarks. A mix of economic and political news kept investors on their toes to end the week, as fears of a possible attack on Syria watered down some of the potential upside that could have stemmed from solid earnings results from the banking sector during the morning. Even though many investors have pretty positive expectations going into earnings season, some companies suffered from disappointing news that sent their shares lower. Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and MBIA (NYSE:MBI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The United States and China are locked in a battle over trade that seems to be escalating by the day.

First, there were US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Then the United States proposed tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods, following an investigation into intellectual property theft. China said it would match the move with $50 billion in tariffs of its own, on items like aircraft and autos.

On Thursday, the situation intensified. President Donald Trump, angered at China’s response, said he’s considering an additional $100 billion in tariffs. The Chinese government said it doesn’t want to fight a trade war, but isn’t afraid to do so if necessary.

We asked CNN readers to share their questions about the dispute what’s happened, where it’s headed and what it could mean for you.

    This development will likely give battered mREITs like Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY  ) , Armour Residential (NYSE: ARR  ) , and American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) a huge boost as investors begin to feel less panic regarding a tapering of the current QE3 program. Markets have responded to the Summers announcement by soaring skyward, apparently feeling relief and confidence about the fate of the taper.

    It was just about one year ago that QE3 made its debut, and mortgage REITs, particularly agency-only players like Annaly Capital (NYSE: NLY  ) , Armour Residential (NYSE: ARR  ) , and American Capital Agency (NASDAQ: AGNC  ) began moaning about the increased competition for mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

    Shares of General Electric have dropped 3.8% so far this year, with everything from its accounting to weaker margins being blamed for its weakness. Barclays’ Scott Davis and team, however, spoke with a source they call the “smartest man in the room,” who just so happens to be “nibbling” on General Electric now. They explain why and offer his views on Honeywell International (HON), Emerson Electric (EMR), and ITT (ITT) as well:

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: The NeutriSci International (NU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Briar]

    What do you get when you cross a science that drastically improves the absorption of cannabidiol (the healthy component of cannabis) with pterostilbene (an antioxidant) tablet? It’s not a joke in search of a punch line. It’s going to be the health supplement millions of consumers have been waiting for, brought to them by a joint venture between NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) and Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP). The two companies announced this morning they were entering a joint venture that would utilize Lexaria Bioscience’s proprietary infusion platform and tap into NeutriSci International’s existing distribution network to create and market a whole new supplement product line.

    Lexaria has developed and patented a technology that makes valuable molecules taste better and absorb better in the digestive tract. This platform could be applied to a variety of nutritional and health-oriented favorites, but Lexaria is starting with hemp as it’s the most underserved market and arguably the biggest growth opportunity.

    Just to be clear, hemp and marijuana are not the same thing. Hemp doesn’t have any tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) in it, which is the key driver of its psychoactive — the ‘high’ — response. Hemp, and hemp oil to be exact, does have cannabidiol in it though, and for those who’ve been following the saga of medical marijuana and cannabis, they’ll know cannabidiol can provide a lot of various medical benefits like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more.

    NeutriSci International is Canadian corporation that specializes in the marketing, development and distribution of proprietary nutraceuticals. It’s got a rather wide array of products in its portfolio, but the one of immediate interest is its pterostilbene, as it fits best with the hemp-absorption technology Lexaria Bioscience brings to the table.

    Pterostilbene (found in blueberries, by the way) is o

    In the grand scheme of things it shouldn’t be surprising, though odds are good at least a few people are surprised at how quickly it happened. That is, health supplement and healthy-foods brand name NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) and the developer of a cannabis-infusion technology — a means of packing more CBD into hemp oil — called Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) have finalized new supplement that is done testing and will soon be available for consumers. The tablet (a ‘melt’, technically) is a combination of pterostilbene and cannabidiol, offering a double-barreled benefit to the health-conscious.

    The benefits of cannabidiol, found in hemp and marijuana, are relatively well understood by the market at this point. Cannabidiol can do a human body a lot of good, like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more. Pterostilbene is the lesser-known of the two components of the new tablet, but no less impressive and no less beneficial. Pterostilbene is known to combat high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and oxidative stress. Combining the two is a real one-two punch for the health-conscious.

    That’s what made November’s news so exciting… NeutriSci International has an established name and marketing channel, while Lexaria Bioscience has the science that makes hemp oil far more functional. Indeed, to fully appreciate the upside for LXRP, one has to embrace Lexaria’s science and why it matters.

    The bulk of the vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, amino acids and all the other desirable components of the pills you take and foods you eat don’t actually get absorbed into your body. Sometimes as much as 96% of the ingredient in question isn’t extracted, and instead passes right through. Not only is it a waste of time and money, it’s a bit of a hassle to swallow a big capsule — or several capsules — for little to no benefit.

    Lexaria Bioscience changes this. In short,

    Last week — to the day, in fact — Lexaria Bioscience Corp (OTCMKTS:LXRP) announced it was teaming up with neutraceutical company NeutriSci International Inc (CVE:NU) to create a new kind of health supplement that gave consumers the ability to tap into the benefits of hemp. We hailed it as the shape of things to come. What we didn’t know, however, was how quickly those things would take shape. Just this morning the company told LXRP shareholders it was already forging another such symbiotic relationship…. this one with Hempco Food and Fiber Inc (CVE:HEMP).

    Simply put, Lexaria Bioscience is focused on improving the bioavailability of the healthy stuff found in food, supplements, vitamins, and yes, even in cannabis and hemp.

    It’s not widely recognized, but the bulk of the vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, amino acids and all the other desirable components of the pills you take and foods you eat don’t actually get absorbed into your body. Sometimes as much as 96% of the ingredient in question isn’t extracted, and instead passes right through. Not only is it a waste of time and money, it’s a bit of a hassle to swallow a big capsule — or several capsules — for little to no benefit.

    Lexaria Bioscience changes this. In short, Lexaria has developed and patented a proprietary technology that makes valuable molecules taste better and absorb better in the digestive tract. This platform could be applied to a variety of nutritional and health-oriented favorites, but Lexaria is starting with hemp as it’s the most underserved market and arguably the biggest growth opportunity. Hemp, and hemp oil to be exact, can provide a lot of various medical benefits like the reduction of nausea, control of seizures, anti-cancer activity, anti-inflammation effects, and more.

    The future for Lexaria Bioscience is partnerships… licensing its science and know-how to companies with existing product lines and distribution networks that can easily inject hemp
