Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Google has so far struggled in making a name for itself in wearables and smartwatches, as Wear OS (initially named Android Wear) failed to gain any meaningful traction and many prominent hardware partners ditched the platform. Apple and Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) currently lead the way in smartwatches, but Google hopes to take another swing with its forthcoming Pixel Watch. As part of those efforts, Google recently bought smartwatch tech and acqui-hired employees from Fossil for $40 million.

    Three stories in tech stood out this week.

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) showed off new devices with an emphasis on affordability. Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the company’s plans to beef up messaging and stories on its platforms. Eventbrite’s (NYSE:EB) stock took a big hit after its quarterly results came out.

    Here’s a closer look.

    Press coverage about Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has trended somewhat positive recently, according to InfoTrie. The research group ranks the sentiment of press coverage by reviewing more than 6,000 blog and news sources. The firm ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of negative five to positive five, with scores nearest to five being the most favorable. Fitbit earned a coverage optimism score of 2.00 on their scale. InfoTrie also gave news coverage about the scientific and technical instruments company an news buzz score of 4 out of 10, indicating that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the stock’s share price in the next several days.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    After a couple challenging years, Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has started to mount a turnaround. The company has already returned to profitability. In no uncertain terms, the Versa is driving that progress, positioned as a mainstream smartwatch that can appeal to average consumers. Versa’s predecessor, the Iconic, in contrast, was a flop because it was priced too high and targeted a smaller niche of performance users.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Buried far down on page 21 of the 2014 Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder letter was an important warning from Warren Buffett:

“Local and state financial problems are accelerating, in large part because public entities promised pensions they couldn’t afford.

“Citizens and public officials typically under-appreciated the gigantic financial tapeworm that was born when promises were made that conflicted with a willingness to fund them.

“Unfortunately, pension mathematics today remain a mystery to most Americans.

“During the next decade, you will read a lot of news — bad news — about public pension plans.”

As I explained in yesterday’s Roadmap, we are already starting to see some of that bad news hit the tape.

In the case of public pension plans, Buffett is absolutely right about both the cause – inept lawmakers making promises in a vacuum — and the future effects — financial pain for millions.

Plus, once you add in the additional problems at many private pension plans, the overall impact grows exponentially.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

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 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    MPLX (NYSE:MPLX) has undergone a significant transformation over the past year and a half. The master limited partnership (MLP) completed several transactions with its oil refining parent Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC), which diversified its midstream portfolio and eliminated costly management fees. Those moves position MPLX to continue growing its rock-solid 6.8%-yielding payout at a healthy clip for the next several years, making it an excellent option for income-seeking investors to consider buying.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The biggest contributor to growth during the quarter was Enbridge Energy’s Bakken assets, where earnings jumped 77% due to the completion of the Bakken Pipeline System last June. Income also rose on the Lakehead System, though that was mostly due to the timing of operating expenses, which helped offset lower pipeline rates resulting from the impact of lower U.S. corporate taxes. The Mid-Continent System’s profitability also improved due to higher storage revenue and lower costs, which offset the impact from the sale of the Ozark Pipeline to MPLX LP (NYSE:MPLX) last year.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Mplx Lp (NYSE:MPLX) has earned an average rating of “Buy” from the sixteen ratings firms that are presently covering the company, Marketbeat.com reports. Two research analysts have rated the stock with a sell recommendation, three have given a hold recommendation and ten have assigned a buy recommendation to the company. The average twelve-month target price among analysts that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is $41.33.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    MPLX (NYSE:MPLX) currently expects to increase its 7.1%-yielding distribution by 10% this year. Furthermore, the MLP has $2.2 billion of expansion projects underway, which should fuel it to keep growing the payout in the future. However, an interesting catalyst developed earlier in the year when MPLX’s parent company, refining giant Marathon Petroleum, agreed to buy fellow refiner Andeavor. What makes that deal interesting to MPLX is that Andeavor owns several midstream assets as well as a stake in MLP Andeavor Logistics. It seems highly likely that Marathon will eventually sell those midstream assets to MPLX as well as merge the two MLPs. Those transactions have the potential to move the needle for MPLX, which is what makes it a compelling company to watch.

    Monday began on a down note for the stock market, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell back down below the 20,000 level. Major market benchmarks finished with losses of 0.6% to 0.8%, and some market commentators attributed the declines to nervousness about the Trump administration’s actions to clamp down on immigration. Others noted that the latest reading of U.S. economic growth showed a 1.9% rise in gross domestic product for the fourth quarter, finishing the year with an overall GDP increase of just 1.6%, down a full percentage point from 2015’s growth. Despite the overall sullen mood in the market, some stocks gained ground, and GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Movado Group (NYSE:MOV), and IPG Photonics (NASDAQ:IPGP) were among the best performers on the day.
