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.

    Whiteman: Sure. Leidos (NYSE:LDOS) is the one I would look at more than anything. The ticker there is LDOS. They, thanks to a deal in 2016 that purchased the IT business of Lockheed Martin, are the largest business in terms of revenue in an area where scale is very important — manpower, getting these big contracts, the contracts are ever-bigger. With the budget deal passed earlier this year, a lot of this IT work is what got pushed to the sidelines or delayed. They weren’t going to stop buying F-35s because of sequestration. What they did was, they stopped awarding these IT contracts.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019: Texas Instruments Incorporated(TXN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Ballard]

    You don’t always have to chase the fanciest tech companies to find growth in the market. A case in point is Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN), which has delivered market-beating returns over the last decade making chips for things as banal as electric toothbrushes, among many other electronic devices.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    That was troubling, since other chipmakers fared better in China during the same period. Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN), which provides a wide variety of analog and embedded chips for cars and industrial machines, reported that its sales in China rose almost 7% annually last quarter.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    For investors looking to add a few high-quality dividend stocks to their portfolios, here are two companies that not only pay meaningful dividend yields, but also boast dividends that have been increasing rapidly. These companies are semiconductor company Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) and vacation resort operator Vail Resorts (NYSE:MTN).

  • [By John Ballard]

    Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) and Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) are two growth stocks that have a proven record of consistently raising their payouts to shareholders. Even better, both companies raised their dividends more than 10% in the last year, making them worth considering to buy and hold for the long term.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Semiconductor veteran Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) reported first-quarter results after the closing bell on Tuesday, and ripped Wall Street’s estimates to shreds. TI’s shares surged nearly 6% higher in after-hours trading, largely erasing the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) hangover that hit the same stock a week ago.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Charter Trust Co. lessened its holdings in shares of Texas Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ:TXN) by 4.1% during the 2nd quarter, HoldingsChannel.com reports. The institutional investor owned 37,489 shares of the semiconductor company’s stock after selling 1,598 shares during the quarter. Charter Trust Co.’s holdings in Texas Instruments were worth $4,134,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — Top Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg appeared on Capitol Hill and hit on what has emerged as the key battlefront for technology companies in Washington.

“We don’t think it’s a question of whether regulation,” she testified during a congressional hearing. “We think it’s a question of the right regulation.”

Senators seized on foreign election interference and growing privacy concerns to raise the specter of regulating social media during a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee that ran more than 2 1/2 hours.

They questioned Twitter’s chief executive Jack Dorsey and Sandberg over their companies’ efforts to disrupt foreign influence campaigns and the spread of disinformation on their platforms, warning that the companies’ efforts were falling short ahead of November’s midterm elections as social media users continue to be targeted by foreign actors seeking to exacerbate political divisions in the U.S.

Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019: Leidos Holdings, Inc.(LDOS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (NASDAQ:KTOS) and Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) are two specialists serving separate parts of the U.S. defense market. Though they are chasing different business, both see opportunities for market-beating growth in the quarters to come.

    The $3 billion competition, which includes management and maintenance of a range of navy and marine networks, will pit Perspecta against two of the largest government IT vendors, Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) and the recently bulked-up IT arm of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD). This is a business where scale is vitally important, potentially putting Perspecta in a difficult position.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Scale is important in government IT, as agencies are looking more to the private sector to take on increasingly large and complex systems and because larger companies — like in the case of the Navy business CACI has acquired — can use their contacts across different branches to cross-sell services to multiple customers. CACI, at less than $5 billion in annual sales, is less than half the size of industry leader Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) or the newly merged IT business of General Dynamics, but Asbury seems determined to pursue deals that would narrow that gap.

Union Pacific (NYSE:UNP) signed a deal last year to ship to 400,000 barrels per month through the end of this year to help move crude out of the Permian until new pipelines start service. That decision paid off during the fourth quarter, when Union Pacific’s crude oil shipments increased 25% as it helped producers get their oil to higher-priced refining and export markets.

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

    Moreover, TransCanada Corporation (NYSE: TRP)'s $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline – expected to carry heavy crude from Alberta to refineries in the United States – is yet to get a final investment decision. The midstream company had secured 20 years commitment for 500 thousand barrels per day for the pipeline and received Alberta government's support. However, the Nebraska government sanctioned the Mainline Alternative Route for the controversial project, which is longer than the company's preferred route and has forced it to review the alternative route keeping the final decision on hold.

    Scale is important in government IT, as agencies are looking more to the private sector to take on increasingly large and complex systems and because larger companies — like in the case of the Navy business CACI has acquired — can use their contacts across different branches to cross-sell services to multiple customers.

Hot Performing Stocks To Own Right Now

Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP) has been one of the best-performing MLPs of 2018. Overall, it has risen more than 45% through the end of August versus a sub-1% gain for the Alerian MLP ETF. Fueling Crestwood’s surge has been the notable turnaround in the company’s quarterly results, which have started rebounding after a challenging past few years.

Crestwood’s rally this year might have some investors wondering if it’s worth buying at today’s price. While it’s certainly not as cheap as it once was, the MLP still trades at a compelling valuation considering its growth prospects. Add that upside to its high-yielding distribution, and Crestwood looks like it could continue generating market-beating returns from here.

    Scale is essential in the government services business, with federal and state customers looking to hand off increasingly large and complex systems to third parties. CACI is less than half the size of $10 billion-sales Leidos Holdings (NYSE:LDOS) and the newly combined General Dynamics/CSRA government business and is smaller than other rivals including Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE:BAH) and arguably needs to be aggressive. CACI is an experienced acquirer, having done more than two dozen deals over the last 15 years, but any future purchase will add some integration risk.

    Whiteman: Sure. Leidos (NYSE:LDOS) is the one I would look at more than anything. The ticker there is LDOS. They, thanks to a deal in 2016 that purchased the IT business of Lockheed Martin, are the largest business in terms of revenue in an area where scale is very important — manpower, getting these big contracts, the contracts are ever-bigger. With the budget deal passed earlier this year, a lot of this IT work is what got pushed to the sidelines or delayed. They weren’t going to stop buying F-35s because of sequestration. What they did was, they stopped awarding these IT contracts. 

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Depending on how investors look at the situation, natural gas transportation fuels leader Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) is either oh-so-close to finally cashing in on its long-term potential or on the doorstep of a much worse fate. Considering shares have fallen almost 80% in the last three years, it may seem difficult to remain optimistic. But there are some rays of sunshine piercing through the dark clouds.

Management has made several difficult but necessary decisions to put the business on stable long-term footing. An important federal tax credit, although not currently active, is likely to be retroactively reinstated in future periods. And new commercial trucks utilizing cleaner-burning natural gas fuels are ready to hit the market. It could prove to be just the trifecta of catalysts Clean Energy Fuels needs to turn things around.

Or not.

It’s not an easy question to answer, but investors want to know: Where will Clean Energy Fuels by in three years? Let’s take a level-headed look at the path forward.

But instead of running from the tech sector, this pullback has actually created an even better entry point for the best tech stocks to buy in 2017.

The so-called “experts” jumped on this short-term pullback, declaring that the reign of these market leaders is coming to an end. But according to Money Morning Director of Technology & Venture Capital Research Michael Robinson, these “experts” could not be more wrong. He maintains the tech sector remains the best place in the market to grow your wealth in 2017.

The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.
