Top 10 Performing Stocks To Own Right Now: Daimler AG (DDAIF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    The recent news that Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. (OTCPK:GELYF) has taken an approximate 10% share in Daimler AG (OTCPK:DDAIF) has shaken up the market. Geely already owns Volvo (OTCPK:VOLVY) cars and is a growing company investors might like to study carefully. Daimler already has a partnership with major auto manufacturer BAIC Motor Corp. (OTC:BCCMY) and with BYD. The joint venture with BYD has achieved little and this tie-up with Geely is seen as a source of some concern for BYD.

    As such, the much lower wage cost in China compared to the U.S. must have caught the eyes of Elon Musk. According to Michael Dunne, president of Dunne Automotive, a Hong Kong-based company that facilitates investments between the U.S. and China, the average line worker at a UAW-represented American assembly plant today makes about $29 per hour. In contrast, the hourly pay in China for the same work ranges from $4.20 at Chinese domestic carmakers such as Geely and BYD to $9.00 or so at German multinational automotive corporation Daimler’s (OTCPK:DDAIF) joint-venture assembly plant in Beijing.

    For the past five years, I have been actively developing the North American and Caribbean energy storage market. In this time, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge and a deep understanding of related use cases, technology, supply chain and sales channels. Prior to entering the energy storage markets, I spent another five years with various clean technology start-up organizations. The experience that I harvested during this period included five years with Toronto- based Eguana Technologies (OTCQB:EGTYF), which designs, manufactures and distributes intelligent power electronics and power conversion systems for distributed smart grid and energy storage applications. I also spent two years with sonnen, a privately held Bavaria-based technology and products Innovation Company focused on designing, developing, manufacturing and distributing advanced lithium-based energy storage systems for the residential, small commercial and industrial sectors. Most recently, I worked at Mercedes-Benz Energy, which is a fully owned subsidiary of Daimler AG (OTCPK:DDAIF). The company is responsible for the development and distribution of stationary energy storage under the Mercedes-Benz brand. In Q2 2018, Mercedes-Benz pulled the plug on its efforts in the residential energy storage market, primarily due to a lack of batteries. The company made a strategic decision to focus on the electrification of its automotive fleet and not focus on the stationary energy storage market. It is in my opinion that this is a foolish move, as the energy markets have now crossed paths with the automotive industry.

Top 10 Performing Stocks To Own Right Now: Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK-B)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    Having said that, gold doesn’t fit in to Warren Buffett’s investing philosophy. The central investing principle that has allowed Buffett to build Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) into the massive conglomerate it is today excludes gold and most other assets that are considered to be stores of value.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    While it wasn’t the largest move in terms of the dollar amount, one of the biggest surprises in Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) latest 13-F filing was that the company sold nearly three million shares of tech heavyweight Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) during the fourth quarter of 2018.  

  • [By Jordan Wathen]

    Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) shareholders undoubtedly noticed that the company repurchased a small amount of stock in the fourth quarter, with purchases at prices as high as $207.17 and as low as $197.30 per Class B share. That activity suggests that at prices around $197 to $207, Warren Buffett views Berkshire Hathaway’s Class B shares as a bargain.

    Warren Buffett once famously avoided tech stocks because he claimed to not understand them. However, in the past few years, Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B) has made an exception by loading up on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock.

    Yet sometimes it takes a simple explanation to make it clear exactly how much something matters to a company.

    Utility stocks are generally considered conservative investments that reward shareholders over the long term with sizable dividends that grow slowly and steadily over time. With the S&P 500 Index’s yield hovering around 2%, the bar for yield is set pretty low today. That said, investors should think twice before jumping at utilities like UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE:ATO), and MGE Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEE), which offer little if any yield advantage over an S&P 500 Index fund.

Top 10 Energy Stocks For 2019

In a classic case of “buy the rumor and sell the news,” oil prices gave back some of their recent gains on Tuesday, falling about 2.4% after President Trump officially announced his decision to pull the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear agreement while imposing “powerful” sanctions on the country. However, crude prices had risen steadily in advance of that announcement, recently topping $70 a barrel in the U.S. under the assumption that Iranian oil exports will decline as a result of the president’s actions. Because of that, they could resume that rally as more details emerge on the extent of the sanctions.

As things stand right now, analysts anticipate that at least some Iranian oil will come off the market as a result of the sanctions. That lost output would further tighten an oil market that suddenly has little margin for error thanks to red-hot demand and tame supply growth. That’s the recipe for higher oil prices and could make top-tier U.S. oil stocks Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) big winners in the coming years.

    In addition to supporting the growth of its parent, Noble Midstream will also assist third-party producers.

That system initially supported the production of six customers, including PDC Energy (NASDAQ:PDCE). However, the partners have gone on to expand their relationship with PDC Energy as well as recently adding a new customer into the fold, which has enhanced the system’s growth prospects.

    Utility stocks are generally considered conservative investments that reward shareholders over the long term with sizable dividends that grow slowly and steadily over time. With the S&P 500 Index’s yield hovering around 2%, the bar for yield is set pretty low today. That said, investors should think twice before jumping at utilities like UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE:ATO), and MGE Energy, Inc.

Top 10 Energy Stocks For 2019: Exxon Mobil Corporation(XOM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Oil driller ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is benefiting from rising oil prices and rewarding investors with dividend hikes. However, the company’s drilling-focused business hasn’t been able to sustain a high dividend in the past, cutting the payment in 2016 amid low oil prices. This suggests that dividend investors will end up disappointed if highly volatile oil prices fall again. Here are two stocks with higher yields today and strong histories of rewarding investors through good times and bad: ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) and The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG).

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

Cheniere Energy’s (NYSEMKT:LNG) top line growth has gathered terrific momentum since the company started recognizing revenue from its liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports in the second quarter of 2016. The good news is that the strength in Cheniere’s top line growth is all set to continue in 2017 as well, which will enable the company to deliver robust upside based on its valuation.

In this article, we will take a look at the factors that will drive Cheniere Energy’s revenue growth this year and how much upside investors can expect from the company.

Why Cheniere is on track for strong revenue growth

Cheniere Energy has transitioned from a development phase company into an operational phase company after it substantially completed the Trains 1 and 2 at Sabine Pass. After achieving substantial completion at both these trains, Cheniere Energy has witnessed a massive spike in its top line since it has now started recognizing revenue from its LNG sales.

The good news for investors is that the Train 2 at Sabine Pass is yet to record a full quarter of LNG exports. For instance, in the last reported third quarter, Cheniere Energy had exported 18 LNG cargoes, with Train 2 accounting for only two of the cargoes. Now, in November, Cheniere was set to export nine cargoes, which clearly indicates that the completion of the second train is having a positive impact on its export volumes.

    Utility stocks are generally considered conservative investments that reward shareholders over the long term with sizable dividends that grow slowly and steadily over time. With the S&P 500 Index’s yield hovering around 2%, the bar for yield is set pretty low today. That said, investors should think twice before jumping at utilities like UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE:ATO), and MGE Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEE), which offer little if any yield advantage over an S&P 500 Index fund.

Related KOL Coal Companies Lobby For Clean Energy Subsidies Silver Shines Among 2016's Best ETFs

The VanEck Vectors Coal ETF (NYSE: KOL) was one of last year's best-performing non-leveraged exchange-traded funds for a simple reason: Of the two nominees for the U.S. presidency, one was vocal in her disdain for the coal industry while one vowed to restore the industry's lost jobs.

President Donald Trump, obviously, was the candidate that promised to restore coal country's lost glory and KOL responded. The ETF is doing so again this year with a year-to-date gain of almost 18 percent. That means KOL has nearly doubled in value over the past year. Still, there are ample indications that Trump's promises to coal miners will be hard to keep.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Digital Realty Trust Inc.(DLR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP®]

    And to be clear, this quote doesn’t just apply when the entire market is greedy or fearful. As a personal example, one data center real estate investment trust posted some troubling results, so investors became fearful of all data center REITs, driving down prices. In the midst of the selling, I decided to pick up some more shares of Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), one of my favorite stocks. Since I bought them earlier this year, the market seems to have acknowledged the fears were overblown, and shares are up by more than 20% since then.

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    This top data center company also is a solid play on the huge cloud and streaming content revolution. Digital Realty Trust Inc. (NYSE: DLR) supports the data center and colocation strategies of more than 600 firms across its secure, network-rich portfolio of data centers located throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    When you think “tech stocks,” you generally don’t think about real estate investment trusts, or REITs, but Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR) certainly fits into both categories. The data center REIT’s growth story could just be getting started if we continue to become more and more connected as a society.

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    This has created some pretty compelling bargains in the real-estate sector. One in particular that I bought more of recently was 3.8%-yielding Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), which in late February dipped below $100 per share for the first time since 2016 after weak results from a competitor spooked investors and caused all data-center REITs to plunge.
