Top 10 Gold Stocks To Watch For 2019

The Dow Jones took its eighth consecutive licking yesterday its worst streak since last March.

Down too was the S&P and the Nasdaq.

VIX, Wall Streets fear gauge, was in panicked spasm.

For the explanation, we turn to CNBC:

Dow drops about 200 points on trade worries, extends losing streak to eight days.

It is the trade wars again.

Trade-sensitive stocks such as Boeing and Caterpillar took the heaviest rattling yesterday.

“The focus has been back on tariffs,” confirms Michael Hans, CIO of Clarfeld Financial Advisors.

Meantime, Goldman Sachs thinks “further escalation seems likely.”

But in the face of trade upheaval, where can the smart investor find refuge?

Gold, perhaps or maybe Treasuries?

Or something else altogether?

We put our agents on the case:

Go find us an investment that will advantage our readers while trade war hammers the markets!

Dutifully, they soon reported a beacon of light an investment class that has soared as trade war fears shake the overall market.

    Because Magellan Midstream Partners has lived within its means over the past five years, the average number of units it has outstanding is up less than 1%. Contrast that with rivals Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), which have a much more aggressive approach to financing growth because they typically pay out virtually all their cash flow to investors each quarter. That forced both to issue a boatload of new equity and debt to fund acquisitions and expansion projects.

    While ONEOK is one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in the country, one thing others have that it lacks is an export terminal. An analyst on the call pointed this out and asked how aggressively the company was pursuing exports given that rivals Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) and Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) recently signed joint ventures (JVs) to build new export terminals. In Enterprise’s case, it signed a JV to construct an ethylene export facility to move the key petrochemical to market centers. Meanwhile, Energy Transfer secured a JV to build an ethane export facility. Both projects should start up in 2020 and supply thesecompanies with steady cash flow for years via long-term, fee-based contracts.

Top 5 China Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened

Shares of Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) tumbled 10.7% last month,according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after reports surfaced that China may speed up its plans to increase local production of semiconductors.

China is worried about a possible trade war with the U.S. And Applied Materials investors were concerned that if China accelerates its own chip production, it could hurt the company’smanufacturing equipment, services, and software sales to semiconductor companies around the world.

So what

China has been planning to bring semiconductor manufacturing back home for years, but the country hasn’t yet been able to fully take the plunge. Chip production is part of its “Made in China 2025” initiative, which (among other things) aims to have 40% of China’s semiconductor needs produced locally by 2020.

Applied Materials is getting swept into all of this because in mid-April, news agencies reported that China might want to speed up its semiconductor plans in light of possible trade war between the U.S. and China.

Early adopters of the electric car often band together in what can seem, in the age of Donald Trump and resurgent sport utility vehicles, like a lonely defense of an unloved technology. But today in California, the state doing the most to cultivate emission-free driving through lucrative incentives, the businesses trying to profit from electric vehicles fought each other.

At issue during a California Air Resources Board hearing in Sacramento on Friday were rebates the state pays to EV buyers using proceeds from the sale of Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits. Under the program, energy producers who fail to meet the state’s low-carbon fuel targets buy credits from those who’ve already complied. Following state guidelines, the sellers use a portion of the proceeds to pay rebates that range from $50 to $599 for each electric vehicle, which are paid out by the utilities who provide electricity for residential and workplace recharging.
