Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

February 28, 2017: Markets opened lower again Tuesday but neither the Nasdaq Composite nor the S&P 500 index could climb out of the slough of despond. The blue chips did rise into positive territory briefly, but couldn’t hold onto the gains. Among the 11 S&P sectors, only utilities and consumer staples traded above the breakeven line while the losers were consumer discretionary sotcks and materials. WTI crude oil for April delivery settled at $54.01 a barrel, down 4 cents on the day, but up about 2.3% in the month of February. April gold dropped 0.4% on the day to settle at $1,253.90, but posted a gain of about 3.5% for the month. Equities were headed for a lower close shortly before the bell as the DJIA traded down 0.18% for the day, the S&P 500 traded down 0.35%, and the Nasdaq Composite traded down 0.70%.

The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage loss ahead of the close Tuesday was Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) which traded down 1.58% at $70.61. The stock’s 52-week range is $62.72 to $75.19. Volume was about 30% above the daily average of around 9 million shares. The company had no specific news, but the carnage following Target’s earnings report this morning was not localized to just Target’s stock.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Energy can be a tough area to invest in, with volatile commodity prices from one month to the next and energy usage changing around the world. Even formerly safe utilities aren’t anymore after California utility PG&E went bankrupt. 

To navigate the industry, three Motley Fool contributors got their heads together to lay out why NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), Vivint Solar (NYSE:VSLR), and Ensco (NYSE:ESV) are the three top energy stocks to buy. They’re very different companies on the surface, but the theme among all three is value in their respective industries. 

Image source: Getty Images.

A consistent outperformer

Matt DiLallo (NextEra Energy): Leading utility NextEra Energy recently put the finishing touches on another strong year. Thanks to its continued investments in clean energy, the company was able to grow its adjusted earnings by 15% while boosting its dividend by 13%. Those two factors helped it deliver a total return of more than 14% last year, beating both the market and its peer group by a wide margin. That continued the company’s stretch of outperforming the market, which it has done for the past decade.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Southern Company (SO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) took a beating on Wednesday, and the gap down of 2% more to $46.09 on Thursday’s opening bell had seen shares recover to a loss of just 0.4% at $46.72 shortly before noon.

    Many major utilities are now ramping up investments in cost-saving, margin-boosting energy efficiency programs. In fact, there’s a strong correlation between the most ambitious renewable energy investment strategies and energy efficiency programs. Some utilities have a lot of catching up to do.  

    Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) has saved 13,000 GWh of electricity consumption across its network over the years, including 9,000 GWh since 2005. The company has an ambitious plan to retire coal-fired power plants and build new wind and solar power capacity, which, when coupled with energy efficiency, could allow it to generate 45% of its electricity from renewables in 2027. Additionally, fuel-related expenses would drop from 47% of capital investments in 2010 to just 28% in 2027. That would free up more cash flow for dividends or growth projects — or both. PG&E (NYSE:PCG) recently filed a plan to retire an aging fossil fuel power plant with distributed solar and energy efficiency programs, as discussed on a recent quarterly conference call with investors. The utility also offers some of the most ambitious customer rebates in the country, with up to $5,500 per household. Southern Company (NYSE:SO) has saved 2,700 GWh of electricity consumption across its network since 2000. By 2020, it will have invested $1 billion total in energy efficiency programs, although that lags well behind more ambitious peers. Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) was ranked second to last among all utilities in the country in energy efficiency by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy. That leaves plenty of room for improvement. A recent report suggests it’s possible to reduce new home energy consumption in Virginia (the company’s home state) by 60%, saving the utility billions in capital investments in the next decade by avoiding the need to build new facilities. Those efforts could also save customers $1.7 billion, but the utility’s most recent plan does not prioritize energy efficien

    Below is Renaissance Capital’s list of the second quarter’s 10 largest IPOs ranked by deal size. We’ve also included the stock’s first-day pop (or decline) and its return as of the most recent close. Spotify Technology S.A. (NYSE: SPOT) is not included because its IPO was a direct offering that did not raise any new cash. Spotify shares popped nearly 13% on the April offering date, and the return to date is 27%.

    AXA Equitable Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EQH): $2.75 billion; first-day pop of 1.7%; return to date: 1.3% GreenSky LLC (NASDAQ: GSKY): $874 million: pop of 1.6%; return of −7.9% BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BJ): $638 million; pop and return of 29.4% DocuSign Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU): $629 million; pop of 37.0%; return of 83.0% Pivotal Software Inc.

    Looking ahead to the third quarter, Renaissance Capital notes 65 companies currently in the IPO pipeline looking to raise $11 billion. Real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield is the both the largest potential IPO ($500 million) and the largest based on trailing 12-month sales ($7.23 billion). The pipeline is again heavy on health care offerings (11), industrials (five), financials (five) and, in a bit of a comeback, energy (four).

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.
    Finally, investors will continue to monitor ongoing developments in Washington around the presidency of Donald Trump.

    BP Midstream Partners has agreed to acquire interests in three assets from BP in a transaction valued at $468 million. The first asset is Mardi Gras, a joint venture (JV) with Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B) and its MLP, Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), which operates four offshore pipelines. BP Midstream already owned 20% of BP’s interest in the JV but will now hold 65% of that stake. It’s an important system that the partners have recently expanded so that it can support their new projects in the Gulf. They include Shell’s Appomattox platform, which should start up next year, and BP’s Thunder Horse North West Expansion, Atlantis Phase three, and Mad Dog 2, which will begin in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.

Top Performing Stocks To Buy Right Now: The Middleby Corporation(MIDD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    And second, the inspiring CEO of Middleby Corp. (NASDAQ:MIDD), Selim Bassoul, who has over the past two decades left an indelible stamp on that business. His mission when he arrived there wasn’t just to build better kitchen equipment — it was to build a better corporate culture. But as you’ll learn from the interview, he did both.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    A maker of commercial and industrial kitchen equipment may seem like an unusual company for Tom and David Gardner to fall in love with — no matter how how high-quality those ovens and food processors are — but Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) is a bit more than that. And the biggest reason why has a lot to do with its CEO, Selim Bassoul, who was brought in specifically to give the company a culture.

    Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) reported Q2 2018 earnings on Wednesday. The results can best be described as mixed, and although investors rushed to buy the stock after earnings, Wall Street’s reaction to the news has been something less than enthusiastic.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Shares of food equipment company Middleby (NASDAQ:MIDD) rose 14.5% in January, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. In the absence of earnings from Middleby, or a direct peer such as Welbilt (NYSE:WBT), or any major fundamental developments in the food equipment industry it’s hard to draw firm conclusions for the move.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now

*For simplicity purposes, I reference the ticker GOOG as the Class C stock throughout the report, which is priced at about $806 as of 1/18/2017. The fundamental valuation principles and investment thesis still apply in the same way as Class A stock.

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is a long opportunity capable of generating high shareholder returns over the next 12 to 18 months as well as for the long term. The company’s stock is currently trading at a slightly lower price relative to its own historic level and compared to its peers, priced at LTM P/E of 29.3x versus 10-year median of 31.3x for GOOG and current median of 49x for its peers (see the full list in the later section). Although the valuations for these information technology (IT) firms are overpriced in comparison to 17.07x LTM P/E for S&P 500 IT sector index, the market is not realizing its potential growth opportunities in the coming years, as reflected in GOOG’s current price level. GOOG’s competitive moat and fundamental value proposition remain intact, and the stock is very susceptible to significant increase in price via catalysts such as the next earnings call.
