Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Uranium has been back in the news lately, not only due to its relationship with geopolitical maneuvering concerning nuclear weapons, but also as a necessary commodity in the global quest for clean, renewable energy.

The United States is the world’s largest producer of nuclear power, accounting for more than 30% of worldwide nuclear generation of electricity. While there has been little growth in new reactors being built in the last quarter century, the increasing demand for clean energy worldwide is sparking a demand for uranium to be enriched as nuclear fuel. Companies that mine and produce uranium, like Azincourt Uranium, Inc. (OTC: AZURF), are seeing the commodity investment market take a renewed interest in them, with uranium spot prices trending upward in the first quarter of 2017.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Take, for example, Cheniere Energy Partners and Cheniere Energy, the clear standouts here. These two are front and center in the effort to export U.S. natural gas. Cheniere Energy Partners owns and operates Sabine Pass, one of the first liquified natural gas (LNG) export facilities to get up and running in the United States. It started operations in late 2016, ramping up the facility through 2017 and 2018. Revenues have basically exploded higher after years of spending to build the Sabine Pass LNG export facility.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

If you're like most investors, you've been led to believe that it's impossible to earn large amounts of investment income without taking big risks.   This idea – which you'll hear from many financial advisors and brokers – is simply wrong.   It is possible to earn double-digit annual yields on your money – safely – by selling options.   So why doesn't everyone use this strategy to earn consistent income streams? Below, you'll find the five common objections I've heard from readers or that I've found on the Internet… and my responses to them.   REASON NO. 1: Option-selling strategies like covered calls are too risky. You'll earn 5% in premiums, but if the stock falls 25%, you're still down big!   This objection is 100% valid. The way most people approach covered calls is risky. (If you're unfamiliar with covered calls, I encourage you to read this essay.) These folks buy risky stocks because risky, volatile stocks typically offer larger cash premiums than safe, stable blue chips. But most people end up losing on risky covered-call positions because their stocks fall in value.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019: Cheniere Energy, Inc.(LNG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By David Russell, TradeStation]

    Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSE: LNG) was a darling in the natural-gas frenzy that swept markets early this decade. Its planned fleet of massive tankers would carry America's abundant shale gas to Asia and Europe. Old smoke-belching coal plants would shut down and "carbon footprints" around the globe would shrink — all thanks to a new kind of technology based on super-cooled compressed natural gas.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Ask most oil and gas analysts or take a look at industry outlook presentations about liquefied natural gas and you will find one common theme among them: The recent completion of LNG export terminals means there is more supply than demand. If this were the case, then prices of LNG should be low today and Cheniere Energy’s (NYSEMKT:LNG) results wouldn’t be that great. And yet, the LNG export specialist’s most recent results paint a completely different picture. Not only did the company post better than expected results, but management raised its guidance for the second consecutive quarter. 

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    U.S. natural gas is increasingly powering the world, and it’s delivered as LNG — a product that’s Cheniere Energy’s specialty. But Cheniere isn’t just one entity, it’s two: Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) and Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSEMKT:CQP). If you think liquified natural gas is a huge opportunity, you need to take a look a these two companies. Here’s a primer to help you decide which one is doing more for investors today.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    The Turkish lira is off 11% this morning, compounding the 20% slide that it faced last week. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his team have failed to reassure investors that they know how to manage their economy. The president has refused calls to raise interest rates in order to stabilize the currency. Instead, he blamed the United States on Sunday, arguing in a speech, “We will not give in. If you come at us with your dollars then we will find other ways to do business.” Elon Musk is facing a big lawsuit from investors who claim that he fraudulently schemed to hammer short sellers last week. The lawsuit comes just days after the head of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) sent out a tweet that claimed he was looking to take the company private and that funding at $420 per share had “been secured.” Musk failed to file an 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission before making the announcement, which pushed shares up significantly. Reuters also reported that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund has not shown any interest in helping to take Tesla private. Finally, shares of German chemical giant Bayer AG (OTC MKTS: BAYRY) slumped more than 11% after a U.S. jury awarded a groundskeeper $289 million in a ruling that the weed killer Roundup was responsible for his cancer. The chemical is produced by Monsanto, an agricultural giant that Bayer purchased last year. The ruling could set a precedent for thousands of other cases in the international court system that have made similar claims that Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Best Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019

On Thursday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer suggested the Trump administration will soon crack down on state laws regarding recreational marijuana use.

“I do believe that you’ll see greater enforcement,” Spicer said, while adding that the exact issue is a “question for the Department of Justice.”

Spicer also clarified the administration is solely focusing on recreational use of the drug, which is now legal in eight states.

“Again there’s a big difference between the medical use… that’s very different than the recreational use, which is something the Department of Justice will be further looking into,” Spicer added.

Indeed, Trump’s new attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has been an outspoken critic on the nation’s burgeoning marijuana industry.

Top Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018

Companies hate to cut dividends. Knowing the backlash they’ll get from stockholders, many executives and board members consider it a desperate act of last resort. They will halt non-discretionary expenditures, reduce payroll and overhead, and even take on debt in order to maintain distributions.

And that’s exactly why dividend hikes send such a strong bullish signal. A company wouldn’t bump quarterly payouts to $0.60 per share from $0.50 unless it were fairly certain that incoming cash flows would be more than sufficient to cover the higher dividend, with room to spare. The last thing they want is to raise it today only to lower back down tomorrow. A dividend hike is a clear vote of confidence for future success.

Top Safest Stocks To Invest In 2018: eBay Inc.(EBAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    To say eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) is a big e-commerce outfit would be a significant understatement. It’s a giant, generating $8.9 billion worth of revenue for itself over the course of the past twelve months. That’s not the head-turner though. See, that’s just the cut eBay takes for itself, which is only a nominal percentage of the total amount of business in transacts. During the same twelve months, eBay facilitated sales of $83.3 billion worth of goods. Point being, while eBay is doing well, it’s sellers are doing even better. In some cases, eBay offers a game-changing opportunity for some companies to be in business.

    Up-and-coming star Namaste Technologies (OTCMKTS:NXTTF, CNSX:N) isn’t one of those companies that needs eBay on an existential basis, but now that it’s able to list its goods at the online auction site, don’t be surprised if NXTTF (or N, for investors in Canada) sees a skyrocketing top line.

    Namaste Technologies sells electronic vaporizers, which are more commonly categorized as electronic cigarettes (or e-cigs). Though initially intended as a means of avoiding tobacco smoke without giving up nicotine, it was only a matter of time before the idea was adapted and new technologies were developed to vaporize whatever it is people choose to smoke. Marijuana was an obvious good-fit candidate for the idea, and Namaste Technologies is simply capitalizing on that growing opportunity. The end result: Namaste now operates more than 30 e-commerce retail stores (with monthly traffic of over 550,000 visitors) in 20 countries targeting both medical and recreational users.

    Those who know the story of the advent of marijuana’s legalization and/or those who know eBay inside and out will know that eBay doesn’t allow listings of such paraphernalia… or at least didn’t. That changed in October, when eBay opened up its doors – selectively – while opening up a whole new product category called “Vape Pens, E-Cigarettes & Accessories.”

    When Skype was launched in 2003, the notion that people could connect via video call was something new, particularly because the service was free. It was a time when long distance calls, particularly those made overseas, could still be expensive, and video call technology was not available to most people at all. The innovations of the product were great enough thateBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY) bought the company for over $2.5 billion in 2005. That made it a father of the “unicorn” category. After it passed through other hands, Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) paid $8.5 billion for it in 2011.

    EBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) stock was volatile in 2016, but that volatility has ended. EBAY dropped 10% in October after announcing poor fiscal year 2016 earnings. Since then, eBay stock is up 19%, more than recovering from the initial losses.

    Google had argued its ads help smaller European merchants compete directly with Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and eBay Inc (NASDAQ: EBAY).

    Payment company PayPal Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: PYPL) was once owned by eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY). The two operations were joined at the hip, and eBay used PayPal as its nontraditional way to spend money at the online auction site. In July 2015, eBay spun off PayPal into a new public company, but many people expected the core relationship would go on indefinitely.

    FBA is “thriving,” Amazon said. FBA items shipped worldwide during the holidays increased 50%, highlighting the growing popularity of the service. To understand just how strong this growth rate is, consider that eBay’s (NASDAQ:EBAY) year-over-year growth in sold items on its platform was just 5% in the company’s most recently reported quarter. And eBay’s marketplace revenue in the company’s most recent quarter was up just 2% year over year. The big difference in the two company’s recent growth clearly shows how hot FBA is with sellers right now.
