Top 5 Canadian Stocks To Invest In 2019

On Monday, Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) announced it was purchasing Canadian stock plan administrator Solium Capital for $900 million, and let’s be honest: Before this week, odds are you’d never heard the name of the target company before. Unless you work for a young company yourself, that is — Solium handles stock plans and provides financial reporting and compliance services primarily for start-ups. So as an investor, why should this interest you?

In this segment from MarketFoolery, analyst Abi Malin talks to host Chris Hill about three factors in particular that cause her to view this deal favorably: the opportunities it brings to Morgan Stanley, why the timing of this deal is interesting, and why Morgan Stanley is likely interested in Solium’s client base.

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on Feb. 11, 2019.

Chris Hill: Morgan Stanley is buying Solium Capital for $900 million. Solium Capital, based in Alberta, Canada, prepares stock plans for startup companies. Shares of Solium are up 42% today. Good for those folks.

Top 5 Canadian Stocks To Invest In 2019: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    The market has pummeled master limited partnerships (MLPs) over the past few years due to the impact the oil market downturn had on their operations and business model. Among the hardest-hit have been oil pipeline MLP Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and gas pipeline giant Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), both of which have lost more than half their value over the last three years. That persistent slump comes even though their turnaround strategies are beginning to gain steam. While these companies still have some work to do before they’re back on solid ground, both could deliver significant returns as they complete their plans and the oil market continues rebounding over the next few years. That upside potential makes them compelling options for investors with a higher tolerance for risk.

    On a more positive note, pipeline companies are building new lines as fast as they can. Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) is working to accelerate the development of its two oil pipeline projects to get them into service sooner than the current timeline of January 2019 for its Sunrise project and the early part of next year’s fourth quarter for partial service of Cactus II. Plains All American Pipelines is doing that by incurring additional costs to expedite material deliveries and vendor services as well as installing temporary generators until permanent utility power is in place. However, even though pipeline companies like Plains All American are working as fast as they can, the industry’s capacity problems likely won’t go away until the end of next year when the first wave of new pipelines enter service.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One oil midstream company that meets all these criteria is Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA). While the oil pipeline MLP did struggle during the recent oil market downturn, it’s working to address those issues, which positions it to deliver better returns for investors in the coming years. Among the problems it’s fixing is its balance sheet, with Plains’ aim to get its leverage ratio to less than 4.0 times by early next year. Meanwhile, the company has invested heavily in strengthening its portfolio of fee-bearing assets so that long-term contracts now support 90% of its earnings. Finally, Plains only expects to pay out about 60% of its cash flow to support its high-yield dividend in 2018, which is an ultra-conservative level for an oil pipeline stock.

Best Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now

There may be a technical reason for the magnitude of the rally in Canadian pot producer Tilray, which has captured the attention of traders everywhere: It’s too expensive to bet against the stock.

“There is not much stock left to borrow in this name,” said Ihor Dusaniwsky, managing director of predictive analytics at S3 Partners, in an email. He noted that fees for borrowing Tilray stock were ranging between 500 and 700 percent on Thursday, making it an incredibly expensive stock to short.

(Short selling is the practice of borrowing shares of stock for a fee, then selling the shares in the hope of buying them back later at a lower price.)

Tilray shares started to rip higher about a month ago. Short interest on the stock also spiked to about 3.5 million shares — approximately a third of the company’s overall float — from roughly 2.5 million shares in that time, S3 Partners data show. That means more and more investors were betting against the name.

    Darden Restaurants Inc. (NYSE: DRI) leads a fairly busy day of earnings reports. The restaurant management giant easily topped Wall Street profit numbers by reporting earnings per share of $1.34. The average Wall Street estimate was $1.23. The firm also easily topped revenue expectations. DRI shares were up 4.5% this morning. The problems continue to mount for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). This morning, JPMorgan Securities slashed its price target for the U.S. conglomerate from $11 to $10 per share. The investment firm cited ongoing challenges to the company’s turbine business.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now

The sands of the hourglass are beginning to thin out. After years of promises from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and months of debate in Parliament, recreational marijuana will become legal and go on sale in Canada in just 44 days.

What will legalization look like in Canada? Though it’s really anyone’s guess at this point, it’ll likely add billions of dollars in annual revenue, atop what the industry is already generating from domestic medical patients and via exports. In many ways, this legalization is being viewed as the next-greatest thing since sliced bread — and investors are hoping to take advantage of it.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now: Encana Corporation(ECA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    We asked three Motley Fool investors to profile some of the best under-the-radar growth stocks on the market today. Read on to see why they selected Encana (NYSE:ECA), Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI), and Baozun (NASDAQ:BZUN) as top growth stocks for in-the-know investors.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Encana Corp. (NYSE: ECA) has seen its shares rise 19% so far in 2019, outperforming its peers by about 500 basis points. That said, Encana shares have underperformed peers by over 20% since the NFX deal announcement last November. Merrill Lynch has a Buy rating and $11 price objective on Encana, almost 60% higher than the prior $6.89 close. The firm noted that Encana’s cube style completions have been an important driver of outperformance in the Permian. In the STACK, the firm expects Encana to be deliberate initially using “skinny cubes” to determine optimal vertical/horizontal spacing while targeting select zones using multi-well pads.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    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. Quite the contrary since, like the Permian, it’s a resource-rich region with as many as six drillable formations that produce highly economic liquids-rich natural gas. Because of those features, it has become an important growth driver for companies like Encana (NYSE:ECA).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Today, however, many drillers are setting a high bar for new wells. EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) has been one of the leaders in disrupting the former way of thinking by establishing a high return hurdle rate for new wells of 30% after-tax at $40 oil. Others followed with similar return-focused approaches, including Encana (NYSE:ECA), which needs locations to achieve a 35% after-tax return at $50 oil to meet its premium hurdle rate. 

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Encana (NYSE:ECA) (TSE:ECA) had its target price raised by Morgan Stanley from $16.00 to $20.00 in a research report report published on Wednesday morning. Morgan Stanley currently has a buy rating on the oil and gas company’s stock.

    Already, shale companies such as Encana (ECA) , Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) , among others, are reporting higher cash flows and earnings on higher oil prices. As a result, they are paying down debt, increasing dividends and engaging in buybacks. This is a dramatic improvement in shareholder yield for the group.

Best Canadian Stocks For 2019: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Stocks that pay a growing dividend tend not only to outperform the market but to do so with less volatility. That’s why risk-averse investors should consider stocking their portfolio with companies that have a high probability of paying a growing income stream in the years to come. Three top options worth considering are pipeline giants Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP).

    Moreover, TransCanada Corporation (NYSE: TRP)'s $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline – expected to carry heavy crude from Alberta to refineries in the United States – is yet to get a final investment decision. The midstream company had secured 20 years commitment for 500 thousand barrels per day for the pipeline and received Alberta government's support. However, the Nebraska government sanctioned the Mainline Alternative Route for the controversial project, which is longer than the company's preferred route and has forced it to review the alternative route keeping the final decision on hold.

    North American pipeline companies have three major pipeline projects currently under development: Trans Mountain, Enbridge’s (NYSE:ENB) Line 3 Replacement, and TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) Keystone XL. Of that trio, only Line 3 is currently under construction. Enbridge anticipates that the project will enter service in the second half of next year, bringing the pipeline’s capacity back up to its original design of 760,000 barrels of oil per day (BPD), which is double its current rate. The company recently won approval to construct the line through the state of Minnesota along its preferred route and signed an agreement with a Native American group to build it through their reservation. As a result, the company remains on schedule and on budget with the project.

    TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) is in the midst of a major expansion phase, having invested a massive 10.5 billion Canadian dollars ($7.9 billion) into capital projects last year. Several of those expansions have already come on line, which helped drive strong earnings and profit growth during the third quarter. That trend should have continued during the fourth quarter, and it’s one of a couple of things investors should keep an eye on when the Canadian energy infrastructure giant reports results later this week.

    In March, FERC dropped a bombshell on MLP investors by reversing a long-standing policy that had allowed these entities to collect an additional fee to cover income taxes as part of their cost-of-service rates on long-haul pipelines. This rule change weighed heavily on MLPs that were majority-owned by other energy companies, since they used this rate structure to cover the taxes they would pay on the income received from their MLPs. Among the hardest hit were Dominion Energy Midstream Partners — owned by utility Dominion Energy (NYSE:D) — and TC Pipelines, controlled by Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Meanwhile, Enbridge Energy Partners and Spectra Energy Partners, which are both sponsored by Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB), also sold off on that early-spring news, which subsequently led Enbridge to offer to acquire its MLPs.

    Meanwhile, TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) has been working to revive its Keystone XL pipeline.
