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.”

    Overall, Crestwood expects to invest $275 million to $325 million into expansion projects this year, slightly above its initial forecast to spend between $250 million and $300 million on capital projects. One driver of the increased budget is that oil and gas producer Enerplus (NYSE:ERF) awarded the company a contract to expand its water system in the Bakken. Crestwood expects to invest $60 million over the next two years on this project, which will help support Enerplus’ volume growth in the region. Meanwhile, the company is in advanced discussions with customers to provide a range of midstream services in the Delaware Basin, which could include building a new natural gas processing plant in the region.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    Wednesday was a relatively calm day on Wall Street until the last few minutes of the trading session, as major market benchmarks didn’t initially respond in dramatic fashion to much-anticipated news on the interest rate front. As expected, monetary policy from the Federal Reserve remained consistent with the trajectory the central bank has followed for more than a year, and the target on short-term rates climbed by a quarter point to a new range of between 2% and 2.25%. That’s good news for savers, but investors seemed to see mixed implications for companies in different sectors, and a late-day sell-off sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average down more than 100 points. Some stocks also responded negatively to more specific news affecting their businesses. Southwestern Energy (NYSE:SWN), Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NYSE:TEVA), and Chegg (NYSE:CHGG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In 2019

Keith Bedford for The Wall Street Journal

The S&P 500 fell 0.2% to 2,015.93 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22.40 points, or 0.1%, to 17,251.53. The Nasdaq Composite fell 0.5% to 4,728.67.

Best Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019: Enbridge Inc(ENB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Income investors have to evaluate a lot of factors when looking at the dividend stocks they add to their portfolios. One quick way to streamline the process is to focus on high-yield stocks of companies with long histories of dividend increases. Right now midstream energy players Magellan Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:MMP), Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE:EPD), and Enbridge Inc. (NYSE:ENB) look like top options. Here’s what you need to know about each.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While hiring a bank to lead the sales process doesn’t mean Kinder Morgan will find buyers willing to pay its asking price, the report suggested that “interest in the assets would be robust, and bids are likely to come from both midstream companies, private equity firms, and infrastructure funds.” Recent M&A activity in the country backs up that view. For example, in April, Canadian energy infrastructure giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) hired advisors to explore the sale of some of its natural gas gathering and processing assets in the western part of the country. That initial report said that Enbridge hoped to sell at least a portion of that business for more than CA$2 billion ($1.5 billion). By July, Enbridge agreed to a CA$4.3 billion ($3.3 billion) bid by an infrastructure fund-led consortium for its entire gas gathering and processing business in Western Canada. It was only one of several notable deals for midstream assets in recent years, in what has been a seller’s market.   

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    That, in turn, limited the benefit that parent Enbridge Inc. (NYSE:ENB) could derive from the partnership. Effectively, the lower unit price increased the cost of drop-downs (Enbridge Inc. selling assets to Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P., to raise cash at the parent level for investment) to the point where they no longer made sense. So, Enbridge Inc. offered to buy Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P., and another partnership it controlled, Spectra Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE:SEP).

    Several high-yielding dividend stocks have taken it on the chin this year due to a sell-off in the stock market and rising interest rates. That one-two punch has hit pipeline stocks the hardest, with several top-notch companies tumbling by a double-digit percentage since the start of the year. Three that stand out as excellent options to consider buying now that they’re on sale are Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM), and Enbridge (NYSE:ENB).

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Has investing in energy piqued your interest lately? It probably should. Oil and gas producers have become much more disciplined operators after the recent price crash, and alternative-energy solutions continue to grow at incredible rates. While it is still a volatile industry, it is on much surer footing than it has been in several years, and could make for some compelling investments.

So we asked three of our Motley Fool contributors to each highlight a stock they think is a top buy this month. Here’s why they picked Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB), Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE), and SolarEdge Technologies (NASDAQ:SEDG)

Near-term growth, and more

Matt DiLallo (Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Donald van Deventer]

    The latest implied forward rate forecast from Kamakura Corporation shows projected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields differing -0.07% to 0.03% from last week while fixed rate mortgage yields varied by -0.01% to 0.08%. Mortgage yields, determined by the Monday through Wednesday weekly survey of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, lag Treasury movements simply because of the 3-day yield calculation used in the Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is projected to rise from 2.92% at Thursday’s close (down 0.06% from last week) to 3.374% (down 0.06% from last week) in one year. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield in ten years is forecast to reach 4.639%, 1 basis point lower than last week. The 15-year fixed rate mortgage rate is forecast to rise from the effective yield of 3.69% on Thursday (down 0.001% from last week) to 4.222% (down 0.006% from last week) in one year and 6.29% in 10 years, up 0.038% from last week. We explain the background for these calculations in the rest of this note, along with some mortgage servicing rights metrics. The forecast allows investors in exchange traded U.S. Treasury funds (TLT) (TBT), total return bond funds (BOND), municipal bonds (NUV) and exchange traded mortgage funds (REM) to assess likely total returns over the next 120 months. Treasury-related exchange traded funds affected by the forward rates include:
