Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened 

Solar stocks took a beating Monday after China cut its national incentives to install solar projects. Shares of solar panel manufacturers Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:CSIQ) fell as much as 14.5%, JinkoSolar Holding Co. (NYSE:JKS) dropped as much as 17%, and Daqo New Energy Corp (NYSE:DQ) fell as much as 31.3% while inverter manufacturer Enphase Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ENPH) fell up to 13.5%. By early afternoon, most major stocks in the solar industry were down double digits.

So what

There were two pieces of China’s solar ruling, one having to do with distributed generation (DG) and the other with utility-scale solar.

On the DG side, China put a cap of 10 gigawatts (GW) for new solar projects in 2018, down from 19 GW installed in 2017. According to Asia Europe Clean Energy Advisory Co (AECEA), there may already be more than 10 GW of DG projects installed in China, so that could make it tough to build any projects in the second half of the year.

    Though I expect this to be an unpopular selection, I’m personally a fan of mortgage real estate investment trusts (REIT), despite investors discounting the industry as being yesterday’s news. In particular, I believe AGNC Investment Corp. (NASDAQ:AGNC) could surprise income investors and deliver healthy returns.

  • [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.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Yet when it comes to investing, reward often comes from being willing to take on risk. 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.

Top Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.
