Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

After a handful of delays and increasing doubts, the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) announced that it would approve an ambitious power plan from Xcel Energy (NASDAQ:XEL) that will permanently reshape the state’s electric grid. The utility will be allowed to retire two coal-fired power units representing one-third of its total coal capacity and replace them with over 2 gigawatts of combined wind, solar, and energy storage assets. It’s not without controversy.

Xcel Energy is confident that the $2.5 billion Colorado Energy Plan will end up saving ratepayers hundreds of millions of dollars over time, but the state regulator had doubts about the economic estimates. Failing to deliver the expected cost savings could have an impact on ratepayers and shareholders, as Colorado was responsible for 39% of the company’s net income in 2017. However, the power plan future-proofs the business — and it could actually end up saving over $1 billion.

    The oil services industry, as a whole, has been a challenging one over the past few years as exploration and production companies have drastically scaled back capital spending. Within the industry, the two segments that have been some of the most difficult to make money in are drilling and pressure pumping (fracking). For Patterson-UTI Energy (NASDAQ:PTEN), weakness in these segments has been a double-whammy because they are Patterson’s two largest businesses. This past quarter was particularly tough because many producers finished their capital spending plans for 2018 early and might not start back up again until later in 2019.

    Oil producers around the world are already cashing in now that oil prices are in the $70s. Leading U.S. shale driller EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) is one of them, since it built its business to thrive on $50 crude. Because of that, the company is on pace to generate more than $1.5 billion in free cash flow this year if oil averages $60 a barrel and even more above that level. This windfall has helped drive EOG’s stock up more than 37% over the past year and could give it the fuel to keep going higher.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While Trump has called for other OPEC nations to pick up the slack from Iran, it’s worth pointing out that OPEC isn’t the only group of producers that have been standing pat as prices soar. Oil companies in the U.S. have shown no desire to boost spending or drill more wells in response to higher oil prices. EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), which is one the largest shale drillers in the country, said, “2018 is all about maintaining our disciplined capital growth program.” Because of that, EOG Resources is sticking to its $5.8 billion capital budget. While that’s enough money to grow its oil production 16%, EOG could increase output even faster at current prices. At $60 a barrel, the company could boost production at a 25% compound annual rate through 2020. However, instead of ramping up to that rate, the company is on pace to generate more than $1.5 billion in excess cash this year as long as oil averages $60 a barrel.

    Once again, the two big games expected to generate strong digital sales in the quarter are Grand Theft Auto V(GTA V) and NBA 2K18. Both games have had strong player engagement lately, reflected in high growth in recurrent consumer spending (what management calls digital in-game spending), which now makes up about half of Take-Two’s business.

    Attention misguided investors: not every tech company has the same troubles as social media beast Facebook (FB) . And for those opportunistic investors our there, such a dislocation in markets right now between broader tech business models and Facebook’s could spell many lucrative buying opportunities. Research out of Goldman Sachs (GS) shows that 25 tech stocks in particular that have seen large correlations with Facebook’s equity returns since March 15 and have under-performed the S&P 500 . The list of laggards is a whose who of former high-flying tech names: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) , KLA-Tenor (KLAC) , Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) , Alphabet (GOOGL) , Western Digital (WDC) , Electronic Arts (EA) , and Nvidia (NVDA) . 

    Not too sure where Mr. Market’s head is at, but it’s unlikely Facebook’s troubles will hurt sales of video-games for Electronic Arts this coming holiday season. Nvidia is still holding the pole position in the booming market for AI and autonomous driving chips, and doesn’t put suspect quizzes on a website.

Industry site Boat Industry quotes Brunswick’s freshwater boat group President Jeff Kinsey as saying, “There’s been a clear shift toward day boating, and that speaks directly to the pontoon with its seating capacity, its open space, its amenities and its comfort.”

Top Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

Private equity shops thought they saw a sure-fire way to make a buck: build dozens of new power plants fueled by cheap Appalachian natural gas to replace old coal-fired units.

It hasn’t quite turned out that way, at least not yet. Many of the new plants built in the last few years aren’t kicking off as much cash as the buyout firms had expected, according to bankers. There’s not enough demand to support the huge amount of additional new capacity, driving down electricity prices. And with President Donald Trump as a booster, shutdowns of coal haven’t come as quickly as anticipated while states are acting to keep nuclear plants open.

None of the new plants appear in danger of default, analysts said. But several plant owners are now using most of the extra cash they are generating to pay down debt.

Moreover, low prices and the results of a closely watched regional power-price auction scheduled for Wednesday could force many of the gas-fired plants built in the last five years to refinance their debt. At least one new U.S. plant, owned in part by an arm of private equity firm Ares Management LP, recently did so.
