Hot Stocks To Own Right Now: Ballard Power Systems, Inc.(BLDP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Travis Hoium]

    Shares of Ballard Power Systems Inc (NASDAQ:BLDP) jumped as much as 11.9% in trading Tuesday after the company announced the sale of some noncore assets. At 12:40 p.m. EDT, shares were still up 9.1% on the day.

    Fuel cell stocks tend to be more volatile than the average equity, owing at least in part to the ever-changing business models of the industry. But even that makes it difficult to explain the wild ride Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP) shareholders have been on in the last year.

  • [By Scott Levine]

    Reversing the 20% slide that the stock had through the first eight months of 2018, shares of Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP), a leader among providers of fuel-cell solutions, climbed 21% in September, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. What charged up investors during the month? Besides the company’s decision to reduce its exposure to the defense industry, investors celebrated the company’s announcement of a new fuel cell for the heavy-duty motive market.

  • [By Scott Levine]

    One of only a few fuel cell technology options for investors, FuelCell Energy focuses on the development of stationary power fuel cell projects for customers ranging from utilities to universities. The company, however, has faced a persistent uphill battle in convincing customers that its solutions represent a viable option to conventional power sources despite support from the government, which came in the form of the investment tax credit. Since 2013, when it reported revenue of $188 million, sales have steadily declined in each year, resulting in a top line of $96 million in 2017. The company’s competitors, on the other hand, have achieved great success in growing sales over the same period of time. Over the past five years, Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP) have grown revenue at compound annual growth rates of 32% and 22%, respectively.

    Wednesday carried the stock market further into record territory, as investors celebrated favorable readings on U.S. gross domestic product, which rose an estimated 4.2% during the second quarter. The Nasdaq Composite led the way higher with gains of 1%, but a solid advance for the S&P 500 pointed to the broad-based nature of the late summer rally. Adding to the positive sentiment among investors was good news from several prominent companies. Square (NYSE:SQ), Glaukos (NYSE:GKOS), and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Hot Stocks To Own Right Now: Steelcase Inc.(SCS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Rising commodity costs from the Trump administration’s tariffs on steel and aluminum continue to pose a concern for the manufacturer. Herman Miller expects steel inflation to add another $15 million-$20 million to its costs of goods sold annually going forward. However, the company anticipates offsetting this with $30 million-$60 million of yearly productivity savings from various cost-cutting initiatives. 

    That the company quantified the expected effects of tariffs and predicted a productivity offset likely contributed to investors’ buying interest following earnings. It’s interesting to note that competitor Steelcase Inc. (NYSE:SCS) has taken an alternate route, and is raising list prices on customers to protect profitability.

    The company hiked its quarterly dividend by 10% to 0.1975, which on an annualized basis yields 1.9% at the current share price.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    As you can infer from the comments I’ve isolated here, Herman Miller will also pass on some of its widening cost-of-goods-sold burden to customers. Unlike competitor Steelcase Inc. (NYSE:SCS), which is simply adjusting customer list prices to offset higher costs, Herman Miller is taking a more nuanced approach, seeking to integrate selective price adjustments within project work via its sales force and dealer network.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Seaport Global Securities upgraded shares of Steelcase (NYSE:SCS) from a neutral rating to a buy rating in a report published on Friday, Marketbeat Ratings reports. Seaport Global Securities currently has $20.00 price objective on the business services provider’s stock.

Slight downticks in oil prices and bond yields marked minor reversals from upward trends earlier in the week, but investors are still watching both energy and bonds closely to see what long-term impact they might have on the stock market.

    The stock market came out of Labor Day weekend on a sluggish note, but it recovered ground by the end of the session to finish close to where it had started. Lingering doubts about the status of trade discussions with key trading partners initially caused major benchmarks to fall around half a percent in the morning. Once again, though, stocks proved their resiliency, and investors seemed more comfortable with the idea that corporate earnings would remain strong at least through the end of the year. Moreover, some strong showings from key stocks helped lift sentiment. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP), and El Pollo Loco Holdings (NASDAQ:LOCO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Investors who were left disappointed by Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP) last year didn’t have to wait very long for the stock to recover.

    One of only a few fuel cell technology options for investors, FuelCell Energy focuses on the development of stationary power fuel cell projects for customers ranging from utilities to universities. The company, however, has faced a persistent uphill battle in convincing customers that its solutions represent a viable option to conventional power sources despite support from the government, which came in the form of the investment tax credit. Since 2013, when it reported revenue of $188 million, sales have steadily declined in each year, resulting in a top line of $96 million in 2017. The company’s competitors, on the other hand, have achieved great success in growing sales over the same period of time. Over the past five years, Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP) have grown revenue at compound annual growth rates of 32% and 22%, respectively.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) is leading a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. Shares are off 0.4% after the firm despite reporting a 40% year-over-year jump in profits and stronger-than-expected revenue. The firm reported earnings per share (EPS) of $5.98 on top of $9.40 billion in revenue. The Wall Street giant was expected to report EPS of $4.67 on top of $8.71 billion in revenue. The investment bank’s first six months of 2018 were its strongest in nine years. The stock slipped after the company announced that president David Solomon will be replacing CEO Lloyd Blankfein when he steps down from his role. Blankfein has been CEO for 12 years. It’s fair to say that Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) went to the dogs on Monday. The company has extended its Prime Day promotion through 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The announcement came after the firm suffered significant outages during the start of the event on Monday afternoon. Rather than get access to deals, many customers were met with pictures of dogs, the firm’s standard error page. Finally, pay close attention to events on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will question leaders of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) about how they store and filter user content. Last year, the Senate and House of Representatives slammed the companies for their roles in and responses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market came out of Labor Day weekend on a sluggish note, but it recovered ground by the end of the session to finish close to where it had started. Lingering doubts about the status of trade discussions with key trading partners initially caused major benchmarks to fall around half a percent in the morning. Once again, though, stocks proved their resiliency, and investors seemed more comfortable with the idea that corporate earnings would remain strong at least through the end of the year. Moreover, some strong showings from key stocks helped lift sentiment. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP), and El Pollo Loco Holdings (NASDAQ:LOCO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    However, the big capacity boost will come toward the end of next year, when as many as three large-scale pipelines could enter service. Plains All American Pipeline’s Cactus II should begin partial service by the third quarter of next year before starting full service of 670,000 BPD by April of 2020. Meanwhile, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) and Andeavor (NYSE:ANDV) are building the Grey Oak Pipeline, which could move as much as 800,000 BPD to the Gulf Coast. Phillips 66 Partners and Andeavor plan to spend $2 billion to build the pipeline, which should start up by the end of 2019. That line would not only bring oil to refineries in the region but also to a new export dock under construction by Phillips 66 Partners, Andeavor, and another partner. Finally, the private equity–backed EPIC crude pipeline is also expected to start construction by the end of this year, which would put it in service by the second half of 2019.

Last month, those companies announced that they would connect their Southern Hills NGL pipeline to the DJ Basin, which would bring more NGL volumes toward Phillips 66’s Sweeny Hub. Meanwhile, the companies are also expanding their Sand Hills NGL Pipeline to move volumes from the Permian Basin toward Sweeny.

    2018 is turning out to be an excellent year for oil stocks. Since the start of 2018, the two most commonly quoted oil benchmark prices — Brent and WTI — are up 17% and 13%, respectively, and they are taking the prospects of many oil stocks with them. Three companies that stand out as rather impressive performers so far this year are independent oil producer Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) and oil services companies Oceaneering International (NYSE:OII) and Noble Corporation (NYSE:NE). All three stocks are up more than 30% year to date, which I’m sure comes as a welcome sight after the past few years.

Japan’s plans to develop its renewable energy industry are lagging much of the world, as the nation has “prioritized keeping the status quo for fear of change,” Foreign Minister Taro Kono said.

Japan wants renewable energy to account for 22 percent to 24 percent of its overall energy mix by 2030, while the global average today is already 24 percent, Kono said Sunday at an International Renewable Energy Agency meeting in Abu Dhabi. “As Japanese foreign minister, I consider these circumstances lamentable.”

Japan’s Tepid Auction Signals Demise of Mega Solar: BNEF

Japan held its first-ever solar power auction last November, with the aim of reducing costs in one of the most expensive countries to generate electricity from the sun. But the results showed “underwhelming demand,” according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Government incentives have been decreasing since their introduction in 2012 following the Fukushima earthquake and nuclear disaster. The support, known as feed-in-tariff, cost the Japanese public up to $24 billion last year, and costs are expected to increase, Kono said.

    Wall Street continued its downward streak on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling more than 100 points. Most major benchmarks fell more modestly, with a few actually poking into positive territory on the day. Trade-sensitive stocks were among the weakest as investors focused on uncertainty related to tariff disputes between the U.S. and China. But for some other companies, bad news of a different sort was responsible for the drops in their shares. Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB), Baytex Energy (NYSE:BTE), and Catalyst Biosciences (NASDAQ:CBIO) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    That trend was one of the central themes on the first-quarter conference call of oil-field technology company Core Labs (NYSE:CLB), where CEO David Demshur provided his take for why things are different in the oil market this time around.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Core Laboratories (NYSE:CLB) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “Following Core Laboratories' disappointing second-quarter guidance, we are recalibrating our investment thesis on the company to a 'Sell'. In fact, shares declined more than 13% after the company downwardly revised its second-quarter outlook amid deferred international activities. Delayed activities in the North Sea, Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions as well as the Gulf of Mexico will impact its revenues in the Reservoir Description unit. To make things worse, CLB anticipates sluggishness in the overseas segment to continue in the third quarter as well. Core Laboratories is anticipated to face other near-term headwinds as well. The paucity of deepwater drilling orders and lower levels of new wells, which will hamper the specialized service provider’s near-term results, are other negatives in the CLB story. Therefore, we see the company as a risky bet that is best avoided at the moment.”

Best Safest Stocks To Buy Right Now

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.

Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    This strategy of acquiring assets from a large parent company to grow an MLP’s payout has worked well over the years. Refining giant Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) has been one of the most successful with this strategy since creating Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) in 2013. At that time, Phillips 66 launched an ambitious plan to grow its MLP’s distribution at a 30% compound annual rate through 2018 via a steady stream of dropdown transactions. Phillips 66 Partners is right on target, having increased the payout at a 31% compound annual growth rate since the IPO while maintaining solid financial metrics, including covering the payout with cash flow by a very comfortable 1.33 times last quarter and maintaining a conservative debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 3.2 in 2017. This strategy has also richly rewarded investors in Phillips 66 Partners, which has generated a total return of 89% since its IPO despite a recent sell-off, easily ahead of the S&P 500’s nearly 73% total return over that time frame.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While those customer commitments were hard to come by over the past few years due to the turbulence in the oil market, energy companies are beginning to grow more optimistic about the future. Because of that, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) and several other partners were able to secure the necessary commitments to move forward with the Gray Oak Pipeline, which will transport oil out of the fast-growing Permian Basin. That project will enable these companies to generate more income, likely allowing them to boost their already above-average payouts.

Lyft said it is investigating new accusations that employees improperly accessed the private data of its riders.

The announcement came after the tech news site The Information published a story on Thursday that raised questions about how the ridehail company’s employees might be using sensitive information about customers.

The article centered on a post made on an app called Blind, an anonymous message board that provides an outlet for current and former employees at companies to gossip about their employers.

The anonymous poster claimed to have seen Lyft employees look up “exes,” as well as data on Hollywood actresses, porn stars and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, The Information reported.

Hours after the report, Lyft cofounders Logan Green and John Zimmer e-mailed employees about the matter.

“Our company’s values are based on creating a healthy environment of trust and accountability. If we find a violation, we will take appropriate action,” read the e-mail obtained by CNN Tech, which contained the subject line “Upholding trust.”
