Top Energy Stocks For 2019

Image source: Getty Images.

Southwestern Energy’s (NYSE:SWN) stock halted a prolonged slump last year, bouncing 40% by year-end. However, even with that sharp reversal, the company barely began its climb back to where it was at the beginning of 2015, which was before it plunged an unnerving 74% that year. In fact, the stock ended last year still more than 60% below its peak from two years ago:

Suffice it to say, there’s plenty of recovery potential as the company continues to put its awful performance during 2015 in the rearview mirror.

What fueled 2016’s recovery?

Southwestern Energy entered 2016 focused on three initiatives: Strengthening the balance sheet, enhancing margins, and optimizing its portfolio. To achieve the first aim, the company chose to temporarily halt its drilling activities until commodity prices improved, which would enable it to live within cash flow. Second, it worked with midstream partner Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and negotiated a reduction in certain of its gathering, transportation, and processing rates to improve margins. That transaction with Williams Companies would save Southwestern Energy $35 million in 2016 while opening new growth opportunities for both companies in the future. Finally, the company worked on several initiatives to optimize its portfolio, including selling a portion of its southwest Appalachia acreage to Antero Resources (NYSE:AR) for $450 million.

    Friday was mixed on Wall Street, with the Nasdaq Composite eking out minor gains even as most other major benchmarks finished down modestly. Market participants seemed largely content to see how things played out on the geopolitical front between the U.S. and North Korea, and key reversals in other financial markets helped send 10-year Treasury rates back below 3% and also resulted in a substantial drop in crude oil prices. Despite generally quiet conditions, bad news sent shares of certain companies lower. Accuray (NASDAQ:ARAY), Cincinnati Bell (NYSE:CBB), and Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Don’t hold your breath waiting for oil from ANWR.

Oil probably won’t flow until after 2030 from Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which was opened last year after a decades-long fight. Once production begins, a 1.5-million acre area within the refuge known as the coastal plain could yield anywhere between 5.7 billion and 16 billion barrels of oil, the Energy Information Administration said, citing a U.S. Geological Survey assessment conducted in 1998. Currently, Alaska’s North Slope churns out about 517,000 barrels of oil a day, according to the state’s Department of Revenue Tax Division.

Regardless of how much crude there is, production won’t start for a while because of the time needed to acquire leases, explore, and develop the required infrastructure, according to the EIA. “Fields are assumed to take three to four years to reach peak oil production, to maintain peak production for three to four years, and then to decline until they are no longer profitable and are abandoned,” the report said.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

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.

So let’s take a look at what that meant for Patterson’s bottom line in the fourth quarter and what management has been doing to navigate this rocky period for North American oil services.

The best dividend growth stocks tend to hike their payouts like clockwork every single year. However, some companies take that a step further by giving their investors a raise each quarter. Two that have a spectacular track record of delivering quarterly increases are Holly Energy Partners (NYSE:HEP) and Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), with both having boosted their payouts for more than 50 straight quarters.

While that past success bodes well for the future, one of the two appears the more likely to keep its streak going over the long term.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Own For 2019

Las Vegas casinos have some bargains on hotel rooms right now. That sent the stocks of casino operators on a wild ride Wednesday.

Shares of Caesar’s Entertainment fell as much as 24% Wednesday and trading was halted several times.

The company posted generally strong results early Wednesday. It recovered from a large loss last year to report a narrow profit.

But during a midday call with analysts, CFO Eric Hession mentioned that the company was seeing “rate pressure” on rooms because of weak bookings along the Las Vegas strip, and warned that revenue per room would be essentially flat in the third quarter. That sent shares of Caesars (CZR) and other casino stocks like MGM Resorts (MGM), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and Penn National Gaming (PENN) tumbling

Caesar’s CEO Mark Frissora had to assure investors that the company sees things returning to normal at the end of the year, and that it was sticking with its full-year guidance.

“We know what the bookings look like through the end of the year. And so we don’t have concern in our forecast,” he said. “We said that we saw some weakness in July and August, but then strengthening in September.”

Penske Automotive makes frequent acquisitions to expand its presence in the United States and the United Kingdom. It experienced positive revenue growth in all the business segments along with strong improvement in used-vehicle supercenter business. However, rising competition and increasing price transparency can lead to lower selling prices, thus affecting the profits of the company.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: ENI S.p.A.(E)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Zacks]

    Following the reform, Mexico drew multi-billion dollars' investment. It could lead up to an output of 3 MMBbl/d by the end of the planned period, as predicted by the supporters of the reform. The reform could also bring down electricity rates in the country. So far, Mexico has awarded around 90 contracts, both onshore and offshore. The country raised about $100 billion from the auctions by the end of January. With nine oil and gas blocks, Shell has emerged as the leading player in the auctions held so far. Other winners in the bidding processes include Eni S.p.A. (NYSE: E)of Italy, Inpex of Japan, France's TOTAL S.A. (NYSE: TOT), Chevron and more.

Two investment analysts have rated the stock with a sell recommendation, three have given a hold recommendation and seven have issued a buy recommendation on the company. The average 12 month target price among brokerages that have issued ratings on the stock in the last year is $34.24.

  • [By Shane Hupp]

    ENI (NYSE:E) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “With recovering oil prices, Eni’s operating profits from its Refining & Marketing business has gone down in the first half of 2018 against the comparable period of 2017. Also, operating profit from its Chemical business fell 79% during this period due to rising costs of oil-based feedstock. Moreover, Eni has sold 50% of its stake in the Zohr field, a high yielding project, which can impact its revenues. Fall in demand for products like gasoil and gasoline, in Italy, is also a concern for the company. If this consumption trend persists, the company’s profit levels will get affected. Given these headwinds, Eni seems like a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit.”

    Stocks fell on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing modestly lower but with other major benchmarks closing nearly unchanged. Investors largely recovered from an early decline following the White House decision to cancel its scheduled meeting next month with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, instead focusing mostly on economic fundamentals that remain favorable throughout much of the world. Some individual companies, however, had to deal with adversity that sent their shares lower. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), and Luxoft Holding (NYSE:LXFT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Best High Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

The Bank of England kept interest rates on hold after a first-quarter economic slump and said inflation will slow faster than previously anticipated.

The Monetary Policy Committee voted 7-2 to hold at 0.5 percent, as predicted by all but three of 54 economists in a Bloomberg survey. While Ian McCafferty and Michael Saunders reiterated their support for an immediate increase, investors pared their bets on a rate hike this year. The pound fell.

The decision ends a roller-coaster ride for investors who had expected an increase until a few weeks ago, when data revealed a near standstill in economic growth and slower-than-expected inflation. While the BOE keeps alive the prospect of tighter policy to come, its statement suggests a gentle pace.

#lazy-img-327654448:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

The pound dropped after the decision, erasing earlier gains. Money markets now show the probability of an August increase in borrowing costs as only about 50 percent, and a hike by the end of the year — previously fully priced in — at about 85 percent.

    Last year, net income dropped from $146.4 million to $101.2 million, creating the sharp trend line seen above. The 2017 earnings dip can be traced to numerous factors, including higher interest expense, a reduction in tanker income, fewer ships in the fleet on charter to former parent Frontline Shipping (NYSE:FRO), and the bankruptcy filing of Seadrill Ltd.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

While stock prices continue to bounce around following their tumble earlier this year, crude oil is back near new highs. In fact, despite the stock markets super run in 2017, crude oil actually outperformed stocks starting in June. And it continues to do so here in April 2018.

That means investors have a choice during the current volatile environment for stocks. And that does not necessarily mean speculating in commodities. Energy stocks representing companies that explore, drill, produce and refine oil finally look positioned to lead the stock market to the upside.

How can this be? For years, the fundamentals of black gold were rather dour. It was fairly common to see headlines saying, the world is awash in oil or crude oil inventories rise again. Indeed, the U.S. became a net exporter of oil in May 2011 and the third-largest producer of crude oil in 2014, after Saudi Arabia and Russia.

    Early on Monday, analysts at Deutsche Bank lowered their price target on Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) to reflect a lower-than-expected valuation of an asset that the oil and gas exploration company is trying to sell.

    Though the analysts lowered OXY’s price target from $114 to $109, they still maintain a “Buy” rating on the stock. The new price target suggests a 22% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $89.49.

    Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Sankey said, “Bloomberg Finance LP reports that Oxy is seeking sale of 40% of Mideast operations for around $8bn, which would imply $20bn total value for the unit. However reportedly some suitors are valuing the asset at around $15bn. This is a relatively negative valuation against our previous view that Oxy would be seeking $25+bn for its MENA business. We are cutting our price target to $109/share to reflect this lower implied valuation.”

    Occidental Petroleum shares were up 96 cents, or 1.07%, during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 16.81% year-to-date.

General Electric (NYSE:GE) offers insight on where revenue growth can be found today: power and renewable energy. The company managed to report a rise in Q3 profits today thanks largely to strength in this sector of its business. Unfortunately other sectors like oil and gas, and slow investment and spending in the economy overall, remained a drag on the bellwether’s sales, prompting it to lower the revenue growth target for the year to zero-ish and report more share buybacks to manufacture profit growth. See, General Electric’s profit up but revenue forecast trimmed amid sluggish economy:

Organic revenue, which excludes growth from acquisitions, rose 1 percent in the quarter, below GE’s forecast of 2 percent to 4 percent for the full year.

Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.

All of this is good news for a host of other cloud names, Cramer said, including Red Hat (RHT) , ServiceNOW (NOW) , Splunk (SPLK) and Workday (WDAY) .
