On Monday (Jan. 22), U.S. President Donald Trump imposed a 30% tariff on solar panels from China, in an effort to protect domestic manufacturers from outside competition.
But here’s the problem: The U.S. solar market needs outside competition to thrive.
Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors appeared on CGTN’s “The World Today” on Tuesday to explain why protective tariffs will actually hurt the U.S. energy sector and – most critically – cost American jobs.
Fortunately, you can profit from the global energy shift regardless of these tariffs. Check out this amazing opportunity in the energy markets after watching the short video below…

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Exxon Mobil Corporation(XOM)
- [By Ben Levisohn]
What do ExxonMobil (XOM), General Electric (GE) and Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) have in common? Not much if you ask me. But ask Oppenheimer technical analyst Ari Wald, and he believes he’s discovered links the three mega-cap stocks, each of which has underperformed the S&P 500 so far this year. His theory: “Mega-cap safety is the central theme linking stocks that are nearing decade-long relative lows.”
So, they’re too safe then? Yes, Wald Says. He explains:
For those that are looking to express a more downbeat market view, or looking for a source of funds, we can neutralize our positive S&P 500 outlook and aim to sell stocks that are at risk to underperform on a relative basis. While a rising tide lifts all boats in absolute terms, we found that mega-cap safety is the central theme linking stocks that are at, or nearing, decade-long relative lows vs. the S&P 500: General Electric, Southern (SO), Simon Property Group (SPG), Verizon Communications (VZ), Wal-Mart, ExxonMobil. We see such relative weakness as a sign of vulnerability in their trend.
As for those trends:
Shares of General Electric have dipped 0.2% to $29.82 at 12:48 p.m. today, while Southern has fallen 0.5% to $50.42,Simon Property Group has ticked up 0.1% to $168.23, Verizon Communications has declined 0.2% to $50.29, Wal-Mart Stores has risen 0.4% to $69.92, ExxonMobil is off 0.4% to $81.70.
I recommended investors dump Exxon in a January, while Andrew Bary included Simon Property Group among the places to find yield earlier this year.
