Depending on how investors look at the situation, natural gas transportation fuels leader Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) is either oh-so-close to finally cashing in on its long-term potential or on the doorstep of a much worse fate. Considering shares have fallen almost 80% in the last three years, it may seem difficult to remain optimistic. But there are some rays of sunshine piercing through the dark clouds.
Management has made several difficult but necessary decisions to put the business on stable long-term footing. An important federal tax credit, although not currently active, is likely to be retroactively reinstated in future periods. And new commercial trucks utilizing cleaner-burning natural gas fuels are ready to hit the market. It could prove to be just the trifecta of catalysts Clean Energy Fuels needs to turn things around.
It’s not an easy question to answer, but investors want to know: Where will Clean Energy Fuels by in three years? Let’s take a level-headed look at the path forward.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Boardwalk Pipeline Partners L.P.(BWP)
- [By Dan Caplinger]
Monday was a bad day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks falling between 1% and 2%. Investor weren’t happy about the latest U.S. proposals on trade, which included threats to disallow or restrict foreign investment in American technology. That was particularly troublesome for the Nasdaq Composite, which suffered bigger declines than the broader market. Even with the negative mood, some stocks still managed gains. Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB), Gray Television (NYSE:GTN), and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners (NYSE:BWP) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
- [By ]
Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked. It’s just a matter of time.
