    Crude oil prices continue to remain in focus after Brent crude hit $80.00 per barrel. The benchmark crude touched $80.00, as markets are concerned about the impact renewed Iranian sanctions will have on global supply. French oil giant Total announced Wednesday that it was abandoning a gas project in Iran after failing to obtain a waiver from the Trump administration to do business in Iran. The sanctions are expected to decline global output at a time that OPEC is already working diligently to push oil prices higher by containing excessive global production.

    Although Textainer Group Holdings Limited (NYSE:TGH) and Teekay Corporation (NYSE:TK) are both focused on the shipping industry, they go about it in vastly different ways. Both companies were hit hard by industry downturns, but Textainer started to see a notable improvement in its container business in 2017. Teekay’s collection of ship-owning businesses in the energy sector, on the other hand, continued to struggle overall — but signs seem to point to an upturn this year. Which one is the better buy today?

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

Things are moving fast in renewable energy. Really fast. Consider that in 2008 wind farms supplied just 1.5% of all electricity in the United States. But by 2019 wind power is expected to contribute 6.9% of American electricity and overtake hydropower as the top renewable energy source.

The rise of wind power wouldn’t have been possible without two companies in particular, which combine to own 20.7 gigawatts of wind capacity, or about 24% of the country’s total. Investors wouldn’t be surprised to learn that clean energy provider NextEra Energy is one of the renewable energy stocks most important to American wind power.However, the relatively unheard of natural gas and electric utility Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) doesn’t seem to garner nearly the same level of attention. Overlooking it could be a mistake.

With 10-year total returns of 226% and plans to grow its dividend and EPS at annual clips of 5% to 7% — all while investing billions in new wind and solar capacity — it could be the best renewable energy stock you’ve never heard of.

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2018: Exelon Corporation(EXC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Horizon Investments]

    For the past year, Exelon Corp. (EXC) has had a roller coaster ride, with the stock having plummeted 15% since September 2012 – the company had announced a dividend cut of 41%, which led to a drop in the share price. Separately, the recent weak PJM auction prices did not bode well for the company. However, I believe the worst is priced in the stock price, and the company’s management is committed to improving its financial flexibility and cost structure in order to strengthen its financial performance. Also, the company is planning to incur capital expenditure (CAPEX) in the upcoming years, which will result in rate base growth for Exelon.

    Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC) is expected to report its quarterly earnings at $0.68 per share on revenue of $7.52 billion.

    CST Brands Inc (NYSE: CST) is projected to report its quarterly earnings at $0.22 per share on revenue of $2.30 billion.

    Biotech stocks are having a great day today–iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) has climbed 2.5% to $276.92–leading some to suggest that 2017 could be better for investors than 2016 was. Not Baird’s Brian Skorney and Michael Ulz, who “don’t think 2017 will be worse than 2016″ but “aren’t quite sure it will be much better.” They explain why:

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Short story is, growth products are slowing and large net price increases are appearing increasingly unsustainable, even if the government doesn’t intervene. The innovation cycle appears to be in a waning period and, so far, large-caps with boatloads of cash seem to be hesitant to act. 2017 should have some excitement. We may finally see a successful registrational study in Alzheimer’s disease (Axovant Sciences’ (AXON) intepirdine or Merck’s (MRK) verubecestat), CAR T will finally get to plead its case, and we may find out once and for all if those ‘transformational’ PCSK9s are just that…

    A steadily building pharma cash war chest is a big offsetting tailwind. As Princess Leia would say, “Help me M&A, you’re my only hope.”

    Skorney’s namesVertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX),Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), and Curis (CRIS) his top biotech picks for 2017, while Ulz chosesBioMarin Pharmaceutical (BMRN) andParatek Pharmaceuticals (PRTK).

Top 10 Stocks To Own For 2018: CytRx Corporation(CYTR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another under-$10 biotechnology player that’s starting to trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade is CytRx (CYTR), which has an oncology pipeline that includes two programs in clinical development for cancer indications: aldoxorubicin and tamibarotene. This stock has been moving to the upside during the last three months, with shares up by 21%.

    If you take a look at the chart for CytRx, you’ll notice that this stock has been trending sideways inside of a consolidation chart pattern for the last two months, with shares moving between $2.27 on the downside and $2.68 on the upside. That consolidation pattern has occurred right above this stock’s 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Shares of CYTR have now started to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $2.49 a share. That move is quickly pushing CYTR within range of triggering an even bigger breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern.

    Market players should now look for long-biased trades in CYTR if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.68 to $2.80 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 154,838 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CYTR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.20 to $4 a share.

    Traders can look to buy CYTR off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 200-day at $2.33 a share or below more support at $2.27 a share. One can also buy CYTR off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

The Past

Now that we are well into the baseball season, I cant help myself but bring out some baseball references for my articles. And yes, I am a Yankees fan but please dont hold that against me. In 1915, the Major League Baseball (MLB) team, New York Yankees were sold to Colonel Jacob Ruppert and Captain Tillinghast L’Hommedieu Huston for $1.25 million. This was the first time they were sold once being renamed the Yankees from their previous highlander era. With Rupperts deep pockets and their willingness to invest in players, this brought about the golden years of the Yankees as it would lead into the era of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and of course the infamous murderers row. According to Forbes, today the Yankees are worth about 3.7B. Not too shabby of a return on investment. Now at the time, no one would have fathomed how big the MLB would have grown to today. This brings an interesting parallel to emerging sports leagues today, particularly E-Sports.

The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) is a public company with a portfolio of sports teams and entertainment related real estate assets. With their deep pockets and their track record of investing into superstars in the sports teams they own, they too follow a similar approach as to how the Yankees were built to the dynasty they are today. Some examples of investing into star players can be seen with the signing of Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks in 2011 and the signing of Rick Nash to the New York Rangers in 2012. Both teams have been fairly successful at the time of those signings. The Knicks made the playoffs 3 seasons in a row after the Anthony signing and the Rangers have made 6 playoffs after the Nash signing. The Madison Square Garden Company can once again use their deep pockets to build their newest sports team acquisition.

Introduction

Politicians in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island have put aside moral and/or addiction concerns over gambling. Instead, they recently asked why all the gambling dollars from their citizens go to the casinos (and governments) in Connecticut and New Jersey. They responded by approving for new gaming facilities in all three states. Below, data on these actions is presented with commentary.

The Current Situation

Table 1 provides gambling revenues and how they have changed since 2007 for northeast US states, with California, Nevada and Macau included as points of reference. The growth in Macau has been truly amazing. And additional facilities continue to be built there. However, as noted in an earlier piece, Japan has just approved a number of new integrated resort casinos. And these can be expected to siphon off some of the gambling from Macau, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.

Gambling revenues in Nevada, New Jersey, and Connecticut have not recovered from the 2008 global recession caused by the US banking collapse.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Wednesday was a strong day for the stock market, as the Dow finished up nearly 100 points and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both posted gains as well. Investors remained generally upbeat about the prospects for the U.S. economy in 2017, and a rise in crude oil prices helped lift the energy sector higher during the market session. Yet comments during a press conference from President-elect Donald Trump weighed on the healthcare sector, and some individual stocks took particularly hard hits.

    Brean Capital reported on Friday that it has upgraded natural gas utility company WGL Holdings Inc (WGL).

    The firm has raised its rating on WGL from “Hold” to “Buy,” and has given the company a $46 price target. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock’s current price of $40.62. The upgrade was primarily based on valuation and future investment opportunities.

    “Like many utilities in the gas LDC space, the shares of WGL Holdings have come off recent highs and are now trading at a level we consider attractive,” analyst Michael Gaugler comments. “Beyond valuation, we consider the recent announcement of conditional approval of Dominion’s Cove Point facility for LNG export as a positive development in terms of future investment opportunities, given the company’s one-third interest in the Commonwealth Pipeline project, which we believe will be revisited due to future increased demand.”

    WGL Holdings shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock has been mostly flat YTD.

Advisors’ Opinion:

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Urban Outfitters Inc.(URBN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The retail bubble, so dubbed by Urban Outfitters’ (URBN) CEO, claimed another victim today, as Express (EXPR) became the latest retailer to get hammered after releasing its earnings.

    It wasn’t the earnings, so much, as the guidance that’s sinking Express’s shares.Express reported a profit of 28 cents, in line with analyst forecasts, but predicted earnings of 65 cents to 73 cents in 2017, below forecasts for 82 cents, according to FactSet. Shares of Express have dropped 11% to $9.51 today, while Urban Outfitters fell 2.6% to $24.75. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) gained 1% to $42.38.

    MKM’s Roxanne Meyer sees tailwinds–and headwinds–for Express’s stock:

    There are several catalysts that have potential to support improving fundamentals, but more materially in 2H and beyond: 1) reduced SKU count (down 20% in women’s/10% in men’s), which means EXPR will be investing in greater depth instead of breadth; 2) benefits from new systems should begin to bear fruit in 2H; 3) potential sales lift from the loyalty program relaunch (realistically a 2H opportunity); 4) launch of petites online in spring and launch of a collection collaborated with Karlie Kloss in April (unclear as to how material a driver); and 5) lower IMU/AUC in 2H from sourcing initiatives. However, these are balanced by: 1) a down-trending Portofino tops collection, which we believe has historically been meaningful to 1Q results; 2) pressure from higher wages and incentive comp (will require a MSD comp to leverage SG&A); and 3) merchandise margin not expected to improve until 2H17, despite corrective actions to assortment (mainly driven by compares).

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy For 2018: Boeing Company (The)(BA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Boeing (BA) shares have been on fire for six months now–they’ve gained 36% during that period–and they’ve been so strong that not even a Tweet from President-elect Donald J. Trump can keep its shares down. But does Boeing have room to run?

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Deutsche Bank analystMyles Walton contends it does. He explains why:

    Last March, we wrote aboutthe favorable historical correlation of BA stock performance with reductions in Boeing Commercial Airplane’s workforce. In 8 of the 9 years from 1997-’15 when BCA cut headcount, BA outperformed the S&P 500 by an avg of 24%. In 2016, despite an 8% headcount cut at BCA, BA narrowly underperformed the S&P500 by 200bps because of significant relative losses in 1Q16. Importantly, through Feb ’17, BCA employment is down 2%+, well ahead of expectations for the year. Coupled with aggressive 1Q share repurchase and one of the biggest winners of corporate tax reform, we see shares continuing to claw higher. Reiterate Buy on upside to new PT.

    If you’re curious, that new price target is $205. Boeing’s shares have dropped 0.7% to $180.75 at 2:40 p.m. today, leaving 13% upside in the stock.
