To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey
Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.
Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners(NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics(NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.
Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend
Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.

Next week is big for housing numbers. March existing home sales figures are scheduled for Monday and new home sales for March along with the February S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index on Tuesday. As for homebuilders, Pulte Group, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc.

Priestley:Yeah,absolutely. The first stock that you mentioned was NVR (NYSE:NVR). They focus on building luxury homes in Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania,and Virginia. They have three distinct brands:Ryan Homes, NV Homes and Heartland Homes. They’reactually the most expensive, I think, of the stocks that we’re going to talk about today. Their P/E is at 24X. But they’re also the biggest, and the past 12 months have seen the stock come up almost 50%. So, great pick! What exactly attracted you to NVR?

For a business that is supposed to be relatively seasonal and cyclical, NVR (NYSE:NVR) has been enjoying an impressive run of growth. Not only did the company deliver impressive top- and bottom-line expansion, but it also showed positive trends on just about every operating metric. If there was one thing to critique, it’s how management is dividing up the benefits of these boom times.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: BlackBerry Limited(BBRY)
- [By Jack Foley]
BlackBerry(NSDQ:BBRY)stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).
- [By Abdul Jawula] BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) tries to revive the brand but is it too little too late for BBRY stock?

However, they had a similar problem likeMicrosoft (NSDQ:MSFT)hadwith the Windows Phone project. Their refusal to adopt Android resulted in their smartphones becoming less-and-less desirable.

With BlackBerry focusing all its energy on software, where could the next growth engine come from? Could it even take BlackBerry remotely close to its good old glory days? Well, BlackBerry might just have found the answer.

BlackBerry’s (NSDQ:BBRY)turnaround has been moving at snail’s pace. In that context, BlackBerry’s deal with Ford (NYSE:F) to expand usage of its QNX software in the latter’s line of connected cars was welcome news. Many see BBRY’s focus on automotive technology as a potential profit center. Norwegian security firm, Promon, recently gave a demonstration of howTesla (NSDQ:TSLA) cars can be stolen by hackers through the company’s official android application, which many car owners use to interact with their vehicles. This was one of the latest unflattering events to take place for Tesla. But this very news can be good for Blackberry. Here’s why.
