Hot Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2019

Canadian cannabis stock Tilray has, to put it mildly, been on a strange trip.

Tilray’s moves have been wackier than anything Harold and Kumar experienced on their trip to White Castle or Seth Rogen and James Franco’s adventures in “Pineapple Express.”

Shares of Tilray (TLRY) have shot up nearly 50% in the past week, surging nearly 40% alone on Wednesday — a day when the stock was halted five times in the final 70 minutes of trading on the Nasdaq for volatility.

The stock was up more than 90% at one point Wednesday and also dived into negative territory before recovering. Shares remained volatile Thursday, alternating between double-digit gains and sizable losses. It was down about 20% in midday trading.

But following the moves of the past week, Tilray’s market value is a staggering $16 billion. It is worth more than Molson Coors (TAP), Macy’s (M), Tiffany (TIF) and casino giants MGM (MGM) and Wynn (WYNN).

Not bad for a company that just went public in July, isn’t profitable and is only expected to generate sales of $41 million this year.

    Oscar Wilde famously quipped that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.” That sums up what we’ve witnessed in the oil patch over the past year as a growing number of exploration and production companies (E&Ps) have copied the playbook developed by leading U.S. E&P ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) in the fall of 2016. That strategy, which included increasing its dividend and buying back stock, has been instrumental in creating value for its shareholders, evidenced by the fact its stock is up nearly 70% since that time.

    The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019

As gasoline prices move toward $3 for a gallon of regular nationwide and experts worry about a spike in oil prices, late this month is the 10th anniversary of $4 gas. The price at the pump broke above the magic number at the end of May and peaked at $4.11 in June. Can gas prices get that high again? If oil jumps above $100 a barrel, it is possible. And in some parts of the United States, particularly sections of California, it already has exceeded that level this month.

Oil at $100 seemed impossible a year ago. Crude was $44. Oil was plentiful, particularly because of a new boom in Canadian and U.S. shale production. No major geopolitical troubles blocked the flow of crude from major oil-producing nations.

The geopolitical pendulum has swung against tranquility throughout parts of the oil-producing world. Tensions that have caused the United States to withdraw from a treaty to control Iran’s nuclear enrichment efforts in exchange for a drop in sanctions will damage Iran’s exports. The deal, which involved other nations and is called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, allowed Iran to export crude.

    After several challenging years, oil pipeline operator Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) started bouncing back in 2018. Though the third quarter, the company’s results were well ahead of forecast, which led it to boost its full-year guidance.

    That’s an unusually large slate of expansion projects for Magellan, which has completed $5.4 billion of investments over the past decade. However, the company shouldn’t have any issues funding this growth since it has the best credit rating among MLPs and a conservative 1.2 times payout ratio, which provides it with excess cash to finance a significant portion of these projects. On top of that, the company and its partner Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) recently agreed to sell a 50% stake in the BridgeTex Pipeline for $1.438 billion. Magellan will receive about $575 million for the share it’s selling — which it can use to fund new expansion projects — while Plains All American will haul in about $860 million to finance growth and reduce debt. With ample growth coming down the pipeline and the associated funding already lined up, Magellan Midstream should have no problem continuing to grow its 5.6%-yielding payout each quarter for at least the next few years.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    As far as positive surprises go, Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) was probably the biggest positive surprise. I probably don’t have to tell most listeners, Wells Fargo hasn’t had the best couple of years, when it comes to their fake accounts scandal, the fallout from that, the other mini scandals along the way, and just recently, their punishment by the same Federal Reserve that says they’re not allowed to grow until they improve. They actually got the approval to buy back more than twice the amount of stock that they did last year. One, that says a lot about how well-capitalized they are. Two, it also says a lot that their management’s willing to do that, that they think that their stock is at such a compelling bargain right now that they’re willing to spend over $25 billion on buybacks alone.

Best Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now

The marijuana industry is being reshaped before our eyes. In only 12 days, Canada will make history by becoming the first developed country in the world to legalize recreational marijuana. When that happens, consumer euphoria, along with domestic and foreign demand, should allow the legalized Canadian industry to bring in around $5 billion in added annual revenue.

Based on the performance of marijuana stocks since the beginning of 2016 — many of the biggest publicly traded names out there are up more than 1,000% in less than three years — it’s pretty evident that investors expect the industry to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. But there are factors at work that could prevent marijuana stocks from living up to investors’ lofty expectations. Here are four ways pot stock investors will probably be disappointed.

    Canada’s Montney Shale doesn’t currently capture investors’ attention like the Permian Basin. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a second-tier play.

Because of those features, it has become an important growth driver for companies like Encana (NYSE:ECA).

    The Dow was flat this morning as major banks report earnings. Shares of JPMorgan Chase added nearly 1% after the company reported a record Q2 profit. The company also reported stronger results from its trading division, which likely benefited from recent market volatility. Its earnings per share of $2.29 was $0.07 above the average estimate of $2.22. China’s trade surplus against the United States hit a new record in June. Many economists are concerned that this news could cause U.S. President Donald Trump to escalate his tariff battle with China. Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to hit another $200 billion in Chinese goods with a 10% tariff. Trump has demanded that China cut down on its surplus. One of the biggest issues for marijuana companies right now is setting up a bank account. Because cannabis is still illegal under federal law, banks are afraid of federal crackdowns. That means a marijuana dispensary can’t deposit cash or take out a loan to help grow its business.

The firm cited the recent tax law, increased fees, and better banking business in Mexico. The firm reported earnings per share of $1.63. That figure easily beat average expectations of $1.56 per share. It’s worth noting that the bank’s income tax provision declined by $351 million thanks to tax reform. This will likely ignite Democratic Senators who are critical of Wall Street. Shares of BlackRock Inc.

    Instead of pitching in more of his own money now, Lampert’s been working to try to secure financing from institutions other than his own hedge fund, ESL Investments. Reuters reports negotiations with Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) fell through as Lampert sought to arrange debtor-in-possession financing. Basically such reorganization efforts allow existing management to continue operating the train. But rumor has it lenders are not willing to give Lampert free rein anymore and are pushing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing that calls for Sears to be liquidated, rather than the reorganization that Chapter 11 allows.

Top Canadian Stocks To Buy Right Now

Consolidation isn’t coming in the Canadian cannabis industry — it’s already here.

The big story right now relates to the potential acquisition of MedReleaf (NASDAQOTH:MEDFF) by Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF). There’s no guarantee that a deal will be made, but the two companies announced that they were engaged in discussions.

Aurora is currently the second-largest Canadian marijuana grower by market cap, while MedReleaf fluctuates between being ranked No. 3 and No. 4. An acquisition of MedReleaf would enable Aurora to leapfrog over Canopy Growth (NASDAQOTH:TWMJF) to become the top marijuana stock on the market.

Should Aurora actually buy MedReleaf, there could be considerable pressure on Canopy to make an acquisition of its own. One obvious target to buy would be Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF), which has roughly the same market cap as MedReleaf. But would this acquisition make sense for Canopy Growth? I think it could.

    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.

    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).

They sold it at the end of last year for just over $300 million. Just, on the surface, you can look at that and say, “Well, they made a heck of a nice profit off of that.” But, there were a bunch of years where, when Jack in the Box reported their quarterly earnings, it was Qdoba that was really doing the heavy lifting. It was Qdoba that was putting up the really impressive double-digit same-store sales growth.

He slipped between skins and lived two lives in one – the big-hearted businessman and the corporate con artist, the self-made man who talked to truckers like one of their own just to pick their pockets at the pump and laugh behind their backs.

He heads to federal prison at month’s end.

Mark Hazelwood helped build Pilot Flying J into a billion-dollar national powerhouse with travel centers in 44 states and six Canadian provinces. Along the way, he presided over a fraud plot that ripped off small trucking companies to the tune of more than $50 million and still wasn’t satisfied, federal prosecutors say.

‘That’s not me’

A federal judge sentenced Hazelwood, 59, to 12½ years in prison last month for his role in the plot, which spanned at least five years. The sentence followed a jury’s guilty verdict in February on charges of wire fraud, witness tampering and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Editor’s Note: This blog post is adapted from a monthly feature in the Brookings Cafeteria podcast called “Wessel’s Economic Update” where Senior Fellow David Wessel discusses recent developments and projections in the economy. The transcript may be slightly edited from the audio recording.

Depending on the headline you read this morning, President Trump’s tariffs are either: a) making America great again b) a tactic that has yet to affect the economy one way or the other, or c) eroding the institutions that produce 75 years of post-World War II prosperity. So which is it?

Scattered across the economy, there’s evidence that the tariffs the U.S. has imposed and the retaliatory tariffs imposed by China and others are biting. Bloomberg reports that Europeans are canceling orders for blue jeans from a 10-year-old North Carolina firm called Raleigh Denim. The New York Times says at least a dozen local newspapers are curtailing publication days because of tariffs on Canadian newsprint. The Wall Street Journal says an electric bike startup called M2S Bikes in North Carolina put plans to build a network of 100 dealers on hold because tariffs boosted the cost of the bikes and motors it imports from China. And in Ohio, Tusco Display, a metal fabricator, furloughed 30 employees; it says tariffs are raising the cost of both domestic and imported steel and aluminum. New England lobstermen say they’ve been squeezed because China has doubled tariffs on seafood imported from the U.S. but lowered the tariffs on Canadian lobsters.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    But the story isn’t over. TC Pipelines’s units remain down nearly 40% so far this year — and that’s not just bad for unitholders, it’s also bad for the partnership’s general partner and parent TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP). TC Pipelines is, after all, effectively a funding source for TransCanada.

    TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) expansion efforts continued paying dividends during the first quarter as earnings and cash flow kept growing. As a result, the Canadian pipeline giant remains on track to achieve its dividend growth targets. CEO Russ Girling affirmed that view on the quarterly conference call, where he detailed the company’s progress on its strategic plan.

  • [By John Bromels]

    It hasn’t helped that, in general, pipeline stocks have been having a rough couple of years. This is partly due to an overall industry slump, but different stocks have been hit for different reasons. For example, Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) took on a huge debt load to acquire Spectra Energy and weathered concerns about its cash flow. TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), on the other hand, was forced to cancel its Energy East and Eastern Mainline pipeline projects, which would have juiced long-term growth. 

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    When you invest in a company, you are effectively buying a small claim on its long-term cash flows. The hope, of course, is that those cash flows will grow over time and you’ll be rewarded with either a growing dividend or a higher stock price — or both. So when looking at companies like Kinder Morgan Canada Limited (NASDAQOTH:KMLGF) (TSX:KML)and TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP), you need to think both about what these companies look like today and what they will look like in the future. When you do that with this match up, one is a clear winner.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One company with a looming catalyst on the horizon is TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). It will pay its next quarterly dividend in July. To qualify for that payment, investors need to own shares of the Canadian oil and gas pipeline company before the end of June. And while collecting that upcoming dividend is a good reason to consider buying shares this month, it’s far from the only one.
