Millennial Moms, as Digiday puts it, are "quite literally, the mother of all generations: Millennial moms account for almost 90 percent of the 1.5 million new mothers within the last year, up 50 percent from a decade ago.” Not to mention that these women have spent countless hours earning an education and preparing themselves for the next 50 years of following their career passions. So, why must Millennial women make the choice between being a full-time mom and having a full-time career?

The choice between motherhood and career pursuit is hard and has many consequences. When that baby is handed to you in the hospital and you realize that you are responsible for that precious child’s needs, it is hard to think anything else is important. In fact, many women tell me that any career desires they have seem selfish. And, any mention of their career dreams is met with criticism from even their most trusted and loved friends and family.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

It’s important for investors to know how to invest in penny stocks safely. That’s because they’re often volatile and can sometimes be fraudulent, despite offering triple-digit returns in a matter of weeks. We’ll show you our top two strategies for finding good penny stocks to buy, plus our small-cap stock pick primed for double-digit growth this year…

Video3 Strategies for Investing in Penny Stocks

If you’re looking for proof of just how explosively profitable penny stocks are, Delcath Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) is a perfect piece of evidence. This company saw its stock price surge from $0.02 on June 1 to $0.19 on June 26. That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

But these triple-digit returns aren’t always justified by the company’s profits or business potential. For instance, Chinese energy company Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: CETC) saw shares jump 144% from $1.90 to $4.63 during just the first five sessions of April.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer, Travis Hoium, and Chuck Saletta]

    It’s nice to see a stock where the price has gone up 100%, doubling in value. But that’s a backward-looking examination. The real question is: Can a company double in value from the price it’s at today? That’s impossible to answer without a crystal ball. However, Motley Fool contributors have picked three stocks that look like they have the foundations for such an advance soundly in place: Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI), MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), and A.O. Smith Corporation (NYSE:AOS).

    So where am I going to invest my capital? While I’m still refining my list, here are seven stocks that I currently own that I’m strongly considering adding to:

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider ofTaser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-ledpayroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE)– The company’s push to the cloud is drivingdouble-digitgains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — Asoftware-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in severalniche markets. BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century.

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.

Mention the word uranium and most likely weapons of mass destruction come to mind. While you can make plenty of jokes about investment returns in the event of nuclear war, choosing to diversify your portfolio with uranium mining stocks is certainly worth a closer look.

Azincourt Uranium Inc. (OTCBB: AZURF) (TSX: AAZ.V) the Canadian based resource company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration and development of uranium properties, recently announced that it has completed the acquisition of an option to gain an undivided 70-percent stake in a mining project in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan. This allows the mining company to increase exploration and production mining in a region known to be rich in base minerals.

The significance of this is twofold: as climate change continues to be a global issue, the demand for clean energy is rising. And as demand rises, so too does the number of nuclear reactors under construction worldwide. In China alone there were 20 nuclear reactors under construction at the end of March, 2017.

    As things stand now, Cara’s immediate future hinges directly on the strength of Korsuva’s late-stage results in both postoperative pain and CKD-associated pruritus. Having said that, I think investors should largely consider the drug’s postoperative pain indication as icing on the cake at this point. Heron Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ:HRTX)experimental pain medicine HTX-011, after all, appears to have a sizable advantage in terms of efficacy over Korsuva based on the trial data so far. And Heron is almost certainly going to beat Cara to market by several years as well, giving it a formidable first-mover advantage.
