Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

What happened

Shares of natural gas fuel supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) jumped as much as 12% in trading Tuesday as oil prices continued to help push the stock higher. At 3:30 p.m. EDT shares were near their high for the day, trading 11.6% higher.

So what

The ups and downs of crude oil trading can often drive Clean Energy Fuels’ stock and that appears to be what’s happening today. Midday, oil prices spiked on news that the Trump Administration would ban all oil imports from Iran by Nov. 4, 2018. WTI Crude Oil is trading 3.5% higher at $70.45 per barrel and Brent Crude is currently up 2.2% to $76.34 per barrel.

Since Clean Energy Fuels’ natural gas products are a direct competitor to diesel, which comes from crude oil, when oil prices rise it makes natural gas more competitive. For today, investors are speculating that rising oil prices will eventually help the company’s financials.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market. Check back to Money Morning today for more insight on how the ongoing trade war could affect your investments.

We’ll show you our top two strategies for finding good penny stocks to buy, plus our small-cap stock pick primed for double-digit growth this year…

Video3 Strategies for Investing in Penny Stocks

If you’re looking for proof of just how explosively profitable penny stocks are, Delcath Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) is a perfect piece of evidence. This company saw its stock price surge from $0.02 on June 1 to $0.19 on June 26. That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

But these triple-digit returns aren’t always justified by the company’s profits or business potential. For instance, Chinese energy company Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: CETC) saw shares jump 144% from $1.90 to $4.63 during just the first five sessions of April.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The mood was negative on Wall Street on Wednesday, and most major benchmarks finished in the red. Strength in the technology sector wasn’t enough to lift more cyclically focused benchmarks like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the combination of an attack on Saudi Arabia that sent oil prices higher and some disquieting readings on the inflation front kept investors from feeling more confident about stocks going into earnings season. In addition, some individual companies had bad news that sent their shares lower. Analogic (NASDAQ:ALOG), QuinStreet (NASDAQ:QNST), and MSC Industrial Direct (NYSE:MSM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now: Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(REGN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Johanna Bennett]

    Shares of biotechnology giant Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) have climbed more than 4% today after Piper Jaffray analyst Ed Tenthoff upgraded the stock from a neutral to an overweight, with a $446 price target.

    The upgrade comes just a few days after the drug maker released soft guidance for 2017 and forecasts called for slowing sales of the eye drug Eylea.

    But Piper Jaffrays Tenthoff argues that anticipated approvals and deep pipeline should drive long-term value. Of particular importance: the atopic dermatitis drug Dupixent (dupilumab).

    We are confident in FDA approval of Dupixent (dupilumab) in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis by the March 29th PDUFA date and in Europe in late 2017. The Phase III LIBERTY ASTHMA QUEST study has fully enrolled 1,858 persistent asthma patients to 200mg and 300mg subcu Dupixent q2W. We look for data this year to enable an sBLA submission by YE:17. Regeneron is conducting two Phase III trials in nasal polyps and will initiate Phase III pediatric atopic dermatitis and asthma trials. The company will report data from a Phase II eosinophilic esophagitis study in 1H:17 and begin a Phase II food allergy study in 2H:17. The FDA has deemed Sanofi’s Le Trait facility “acceptable”. As a result, we anticipate the partners will refile on Kevzara (sarilumab) and could gain approval in 2Q:17. These two launches should turn Regeneron’s antibody alliance with Sanofi profitable.

    Todays news is the latest development in what has been a volatile time the drug maker. The shares have fallen sharply over the during the last three months, the result of a patent suit with Amgen (AMGN) over its anti-cholesterol drug Praluent, which a judge had set it wouldnt be able to sell in the U.S. , But last week, a judge granted a stay that would allow Regeneron to sell Praluent. It also fueled a pop in its shares.

    The next day, however, Regeneron reported earnings, and while profits o

    In the case of these three stocks, however, it may be worth taking a gamble. Our contributors think catalysts at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:REGN), Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-B), and United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) can get them back to their winning ways. Read on to find out if these down-and-out stocks are right for your portfolio.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Shares of Amgen Inc. (NASDAQ: AMGN) saw a handy gain to close out the week after the company won a Delaware court ruling that blocked Sanofi (NYSE: SNY) and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: REGN) from selling their cholesterol-lowering drug in the United States. Essentially the court found that the drug Praluent actually infringed upon Amgens patents for its rival treatment Repatha.

    It hasn’t been an easy time for investors inRegeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) recently…and today’s price action is likely to reinforce the sense of whiplash they must be feeling.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    What do I mean? Regeneron’s dropped 14% during the last three months, the result of a patent suit with Amgen(AMGN) over its anti-cholesterol drug Praluent, which a judge had set it wouldn’t be able to sell in the U.S.Then last night, there was finally good news: Ajudge ordered a stay, which would allow Regeneron to sell Praluent, and resulted in a 2% pop in its shares last night after the market close. But then Regeneron reported earnings, and while profits of $3.04 cents a share metthe Street consensus, Regeneron missed on sales and offered disappointing guidance. That caused Regeneron shares to sink 2.1% in pre-open trading.

    Fast forward to this afternoon, and and now they’re up nearly 3%. Credit Suisse analyst Alethia Young and team explain why the injunction outweighs the earnings:

    Company issued Eylea guidance for 2017- they guided single digit
    percentage growth over 2016. Consensus had been for 12% growth and we
    had modeled 11% growth.

    EPS for 4Q came in at $3.04 in line with $3.04 consensus. Since the company has already provided OpEx guidance for 2017 and the Eylea 4Q estimate ahead of today we think earnings are less of a focus.

    We are curious where in the single digit percentage growth for Eylea the company means- 9% YoY growth wouldnt be too far from consensus vs. 3%
    growth…

    As we wrote last night, we would expect shares to trade up due to the injunction stay. We would expect shares to be up 2-4% from the injunction stay, but the effect might be muted somewhat by the Eylea guide. We would guess shares might be up 1 to 3% today.

    Shares ofRegeneron Pharmaceuticals have gained 2.8% to $363.04 at 1:57 p.m. today, while the iS

Top 5 Value Stocks To Buy For 2018

Retirees can draw a crucial investment lesson from studying the two major anniversaries the market is celebrating this month.

I put celebrating in quotes because the first of those two anniversaries was the top of the Internet bubble in March 2000, 18 years ago. The bursting of that bubble is something many of us would just as soon forget, of course, since the Nasdaq Composite index

    While the economy’s natural — and recurring — cycles favor different kinds of stocks at different times, not every great trend is necessarily a cyclical one. Sometimes, a trend is rooted in a technological development that changes cultural norms. The advent of the smartphone, for example, has made constant connectivity to the world around part of how we live our daily lives.

    These mega-trends present tremendous opportunities for investors too, provided they’re savvy enough to see them coming and play them the right way.

    One such mega-trend newly underway right now is the proliferation of wearables… devices that meld clothing (often a wrist-worn device) and technology to perform a function that couldn’t be performed otherwise. Much of the same technology that made the smartphone possible are now ushering in wearables.

    It’s not been a smooth beginning. however.

    While the buzz was strong and expectations reached a peak two years ago when Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) was all the rage and in the wake of its IPO, the company’s growth wasn’t to be sustained. The company is struggling to muster any growth now, and FIT shares have fallen to a tenth of their value seen in late-2015, when the euphoria was strongest.

    Fitbit’s slowdown has been mirrored by other companies in the space. The wearables market only grew 3.1% in Q3 of 2016.

    On the flipside, while the debacle of Fitbit — the wearable industry’s iconic company — has been a painful, it’s also been a learning experience. And, it’s not as if the slowdown is unfurling without the wearables market never reaching a respectable size. International Data Corporation estimates were 23 million ‘wearables’ delivered in the third quarter of last year alone.

    Moreover, the fizzling of the market hasn’t turned into a reason to swear off wearables as an investment opportunity… quite the opposite, actually. It’s just now become considerably clearer what consumers want an
