Long time readers know that I´m a fan of value catalyst plays, as being undervalued by itself is not a reason for me to be interested in a stock. Too often, selections we deem ¨cheap¨ or a ¨buy the dip¨ play can continue to stay cheap or head south unless there is a catalyst present to turn the ship around.

In my July update piece titled ¨Vosevi EU Approval Just One Of Several Catalysts On The Way¨ we looked at several material events that could cause shares to surge higher. While they initially did just that, unfortunately a pullback in the biotech sector brought the stock back to levels it was previously at.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019: ONEOK Inc.(OKE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Pipeline giant ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) is a one-of-a-kind investment opportunity these days. Of the 500 companies in the S&P 500, it’s the only one that meets five distinct characteristics of size, financial strength, earnings growth, dividend growth, and yield. That unique combination makes it an excellent choice for investors who want both high growth and a high yield.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    However, you could happily add ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) without facing any of those issues, because this midstream company is structured as a regular corporation. Although ONEOK’s yield of 4.8% is a little lower than Enterprise’s, it shares a lot of the partnership’s most desirable traits.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Investing in retirement requires a different focus, usually one that includes a prominent place for dividend income. If dividend-paying stocks are what you’re looking for, then you should take a closer look at high-yielding Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK), ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE), and W.P. Carey Inc. (NYSE:WPC). They offer dividend yields of 4%, 5%, and 6%, respectively… income that could materially increase your retirement “paycheck” and help to supplement Social Security.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Several pipeline stocks have produced market-beating returns since their formation. Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) and ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) stand out because they have turned a relatively small up-front investment into a massive windfall over the past two decades.

Edelweiss’ research report on Shoppers Stop

Shoppers Stops (SSL) Q4FY18 revenue and EBITDA came in line. Key highlights: i) disappointing LTL salesdeclined 4.1% YoY on a base of -1.1%due to lower sale days & store renovations; ii) debt reduction on trackdown >INR4.5bn in past one year, leading to interest cost falling >55% YoY; and iii) private labels contribution fell to 8.5% led by inventory correction (pick up in this segment is crucial). Factoring store renovation coming to an end and complete benefits of Amazon tie up to be reaped only from H2FY19, we have pruned FY19E and FY20E EBITDA by 13.9% and 16.5%, respectively. SSLs strategy of exiting non-core businesses, exclusive deal with Amazon India and intention to be debt free by FY19 are key catalysts. Maintain BUY.

Outlook

We believe, SSL is in a sweet spot as: 1) tie up with Amazon will boost omni-channel (100% YoY growth rate expected over next 2-3 years); 2) interest cost has dipped as funds garnered from the Amazon deal & HyperCity sale were utilised to pare debt; and 3) hive off of non-core businesses will enable management focus on core departmental format. At CMP, stock is trading at 12.5x FY20E EV/EBITDA. We retain 15x FY20E EV/EBITDA multiple to arrive at TP of INR680 (earlier INR691). Maintain BUY/SO.

Hot Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

We spend most of our working lives contributing money to retirement accounts but what about taking it out in retirement? If you have pre-tax, Roth, and taxable accounts, how much should you withdraw from each one? Here are some things to consider:

1) How much can you safely withdraw? The safest option is to only withdraw earnings and not touch any of the principal but at current dividend yields and interest rates, don’t expect to get much more than about 2% of your portfolio. That’s probably not enough for most people and that number can fluctuate and may not keep pace with inflation in the long term.

The traditional rule of thumb is that you can safely withdraw about 4% of the initial value of a diversified portfolio and increase that amount with inflation for about 30 years. However, the rule was developed during the 1990s when interest rates were higher and many financial experts (including the financial planner who created it) are concerned that the rule is now obsolete. It also doesn’t take into account that you may have to withdraw larger amounts while you still have a mortgage or before you start collecting pension and Social Security benefits so a steady withdrawal rate may not make sense.

    Retail stocks are in focus after the U.S. Census Bureau released monthly sales figures before the bell Tuesday. The bureau said that retail sales increased by 0.3% in April, a figure that matched trade expectations. Markets had expected consumer spending to increase, however home improvement sales were not the major factor that most expected. This was evident from The Home Depot’s earnings report. Markets are increasingly optimistic over U.S. trade negotiations with China. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No. 1 economic advisor will visit the United States this week to continue the nation’s dialogue with America. In addition, roughly 100 companies and trade associations will be sounding off to the Trump administration about the potential impact of tariffs in the Chinese markets.

Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) is sounding the alarm about the state of the markets. The company warned that the U.S. budget deficit is increasing while America’s unemployment rate is falling.
