Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) is a modern-day case study of how to survive overwhelming odds of bankruptcy. Not just that, but the company, throughout 2016, became far more financially stable than any of us could have thought at the beginning of the year. With a fresh year now on the table, there’s 252 trading days ahead of us and a lot of speculation as to how CHK will perform. The focus must remain on reducing leverage, boosting production to increase cash flow, and securing long-term, high-graded growth opportunities. Should Chesapeake be able to do all of those things this year, the stock will certainly outperform.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: CVR Refining, LP(CVRR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Finally, shares of CVR Energy fell 9%. The holding company agreed to exchange its stock to investors in related entity CVR Refining (NYSE:CVRR), accepting as many as 37.1 million units at a ratio of 0.6335 shares of CVR Energy for every unit of CVR Refining exchanged. In a release, CVR Energy said that “many CVR Refining unitholders may wish to hold their investment in the form of common stock rather than partnership interests” after recent tax reform legislation. But it’s unclear why CVR Energy would make an offer at a 25% premium rather than simply having CVR Refining convert to a corporate entity or use similar steps that wouldn’t adversely affect CVR Energy shareholders for the benefit of CVR Refining unitholders. CVR Refining finished the session 8% higher.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Chevron Corporation(CVX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Jackson]

    This integrated giant is a safer way for investors looking to stay or get long the energy sector, and it has a big Permian Basin exposure. Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) is a U.S.-based integrated oil and gas company with worldwide operations in exploration and production, refining and marketing, transportation and petrochemicals.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    The move is consistent with what had been seen by Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) earlier in 2018. On February 2, 2018, Chevron reported earnings and included a note regarding a 4-cent dividend hike. Chevron even noted that the hike puts the company on track to make 2018 the 31st consecutive year with an increase in annual dividend payout. The company’s $0.04 per share increase in the quarterly dividend took the new payout to $1.12 per share that would be payable in March 2018.

    Exxon Mobil (NYSE: XOM) hauled in $6.4 billion in adjusted net income in the fourth quarter. BP (NYSE: BP) shattered expectations with a profit of $3.5 billion. Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A) banked earnings of $5.7 billion. That’s $15.6 billion from just three companies — in a single quarter. For the year, the combined earnings of the five super-majors — this trio plus Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and Total (NYSE: TOT) — reached an incredible $80 billion.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) saw its short interest decrease to 16.71 million shares from the previous reading of 17.19 million. The shares were last seen trading at $115.29, in a 52-week range of $108.02 to $133.88.

  • [By ]

    Action To Take: Going forward, huge, integrated oil companies like Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) will need to figure out how to evolve in an environment where the price of their primary product remains flat, perhaps for decades. This will translate into flat profits and, perhaps, skinnier dividends. Currently, both stocks trade at 20-plus forward price-to-earnings ratios (PEs), much higher than their attractive historical norms. While the market has bid up these stocks, the higher multiples indicate lower-than-anticipated earnings per share (EPS). 

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) reported its most recent quarterly results before the markets opened on Friday. It posted $2.06 in earnings per share (EPS) and $42.35 billion in revenue, which compares with consensus estimates of $1.87 in EPS and revenue of $46.13 billion. In the same period of last year, the oil giant said it had EPS of $0.72 on $37.62 billion in revenue.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

In your 60s, your investment goals are likely to shift from capital accumulation to a mixture that includes more of a focus on safety and income. As you look to start living off of your nest egg, large U.S. utility Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK) and consumer product giant The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) can help you make the transition to a new way of thinking about your portfolio. Here’s what you need to know about this pair of high-yielding stocks.

Boring but steady

There’s no way around it — Duke Energy is a pretty boring company. Its core business is a collection of regulated utilities that sell electricity and natural gas to a combined 9.2 million customers. In addition, the company owns midstream natural gas pipelines and a renewable-energy merchant power business. Electric utilities are the core of Duke’s operation, providing 88% of its earnings, with gas utilities and pipelines chipping in 9% and the rest coming from its merchant operations.

    Pontoon boats are a versatile vessel as they can be used for fishing, sports, cruising, and day trips. That latter part is key because rival boatmaker Brunswick (NYSE:BC) — which Polaris used to have a business relationship with when it was in the marine market — says that overnight trips with boats are fading. Industry site Boat Industry quotes Brunswick’s freshwater boat group President Jeff Kinsey as saying, “There’s been a clear shift toward day boating, and that speaks directly to the pontoon with its seating capacity, its open space, its amenities and its comfort.”

    While Conoco’s plans are said be well above that of Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) and Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), ConocoPhillips is still thought of as having a positive strategy and an even better execution of that strategy. The call even talks about solid cash flow generation and underappreciated assets. All that said, there appears to be better relative upside elsewhere in the energy sector. For a reference, Chevron was last seen down less than 1% so far in 2018, if the dividend is included, and Exxon shares have been up just about 2.5% so far in 2018, again if you include dividends.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Watch For 2019

Warren Buffett is so good at picking winning businesses that he grew Berkshire Hathaway’s book value by more than 19.1% annually between1965 and 2017. That astounding track record easily qualifies him as the greatest investor of all time.

Following in Buffett’s footsteps

Dan Caplinger (Markel): Warren Buffett gave the world a great method of making money: Open a successful insurance operation and then invest the premiums that clients pay in investments that pay a lot more than the fixed-income securities that most insurance companies choose for their portfolios. Markel’s history as a publicly traded company dates back to 1986, and the company has an extremely good track record of generating positive underwriting profits, running about 70% with several years sporting very attractive returns.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Legacy Reserves (NASDAQ:LGCY) is a company that I’ve discussed in reports for Distressed Value Investing. While its prospects have improved with higher oil prices, there is still a fair amount of concern about the company’s high amount of leverage. Due to its hedges and a widening WTI Midland to WTI Cushing differential, Legacy’s estimated realized prices for oil in 2018 and 2019 have only improved around $2-2.50 per barrel over the last month and a half, compared to an $8-9 increase in WTI Cushing strip prices. This means that Legacy’s projected cash flow isn’t benefiting much from the higher oil prices, and after its downward revision in production guidance, the company may not be able to pay down debt in 2018 or 2019 (assuming its current capital expenditure budget).

This high amount of leverage has left its unsecured notes yielding approximately 13-14% to maturity, which indicates still significant concern about restructuring. I’ve estimated that Legacy’s assets are worth less than $6 per share (assuming that its C-Corp conversion goes through), and that based on its bond prices, a fair price may be under $4 per share to allow for the restructuring risk.

Best Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

In 1956, geologist M. King Hubbert came up with what seemed to be an accurate prediction of “peak oil”, a theory regarding the maxing out of U.S. oil production that goes back to 1919, using statistical modeling. Hubbert projected that U.S. oil production would peak between 1965 and 1971.

With the onset of the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo and ensuing energy crisis, Hubbert’s theory seemed dead on, mainly due to the United States’ dependence on imported oil increasing during the latter part of the 20th century. But here’s what really happened.

The red line shows Hubbert’s prediction. The green line represents actual U.S. oil production. Hubbert’s “Oilmageddon” never happened thanks to the shale revolution.

And the effect on the price of oil? We know that story from visiting the pumps.

    Friday was a strong day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks finished higher by 1% to 2%. Market participants focused their attention on the April jobs report, which included a drop in the unemployment rate to 3.9%, its lowest level in more than 17 years. Nonfarm payroll gains of 164,000 weren’t extremely strong, and some saw wage growth of just 2.6% as bad news for workers. Yet from many investors’ perspective, weak wage growth is actually a positive, as it indicates a lack of inflationary pressure that’s good for most stocks. Good news regarding several key individual companies also helped stoke favorable sentiment. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Shares of Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD) have come a long way since I originally presented the idea as “undervalued with catalysts” at the end of 2016. In total I’ve written four update pieces since and the stock has continued to be a decent performer.

Figure 1: FOLD daily advanced chart (Source: Finviz Elite) (Disclosure: Contains affiliate link)

In premarket today, the stock is in the red by a bit over 2% on news that the company sold 19,354,839 shares at a price point of $15.50 per share. Gross proceeds are expected to total around $300 million. Underwriter option is for an additional 2,903,225 shares should it be exercised. Dilution of around 13% or so appears acceptable, and it’s worth noting that JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are serving as joint lead book-running managers while Cowen and Leerink Partners are acting as co-booking managers (Bank of America Merrill Lynch as lead co-manager). This type of investment banking participation bodes well, as does pricing which is at only a slight discount to the current share price. Keep in mind that the deal was originally for $250 million but then it was upsized to $300 million, another bullish sign.

3 Things You Need To Know About The Soaring Greenback

The U.S. dollar has exploded, forcing stock investors to pay attention.

The strength or weakness of the currency can have tremendous influence over stock prices, making it critical for investors to understand the correlation.

Market prices are influenced — both positively and negatively — depending on the sector and direction of the U.S. dollar. A strong dollar benefits some industries while hurting others. Right now, the USD is on its way back up.

After 2017 was spent in an aggressive downward trend, the greenback bottomed in January 2018, proceeding to build a technical price base for the next 12-plus weeks. At the start of April 2018, the currency started to tick higher until technical resistance at both the 50 and 200-day simple moving averages were broken on the upside. Now, with the support of both major moving averages, there is little doubt that a substantial uptrend has been established.

I have little doubt that the greenback’s climb will continue for the rest of 2018 at a minimum. The combined factors of upside technical price momentum, advancing interest rates, and improving economy provide little choice for the U.S. currency to do anything but gain strength.

Now that we have established that the dollar should continue higher, how does dollar strength affect the stock market?

Well, the truth is, studies have shown that strength or weakness in the greenback has a minimal effect on the overall stock market.

Barclay’s published a report that compared the S&P 500 performance in both healthy and weak dollar regimes. It discovered that there is little to no correlation between index performance and a climbing or falling greenback. “What?!,” I can hear you say, “why this article if there is no greenback effect on stock prices?”

Dollar strength or weakness does have a significant effect on specific market sectors. Here’s what every investor needs to know:

1. Commodity Prices Are Correlated
There is a strong correlation between dollar strength and commodity prices.

This means that stocks in the energy and material sectors can suffer from a stronger greenback. Reason being that as the greenback gains strength, it makes commodities more expensive. Costlier commodities result in increased costs for companies leading to decreased earnings.

Investors need to exercise caution to hold energy company shares like Chevron (NYSE: CVX), as well as basic material companies like Dow Chemical (NYSE: DOW) and Alcoa (NYSE: AA). Also, ETFs representing the energy or basic material sectors need to be reevaluated during periods of the U.S. dollar moving higher.
At the same time, these companies and sectors often thrive during weakness in the greenback.

2. Multi-Nationals Suffer From Dollar Strength
Companies that create substantial earnings in foreign currencies suffer when the greenback pushes higher. The reason being is the fact that when the foreign currency is converted into stronger U.S. dollars it losses value. When the U.S. dollar is weak, the opposite occurs, improving the multi-national’s bottom line.

Companies sometimes rush to mitigate the damage caused by currency conversion by lowering their earnings expectations in anticipation of a stronger U.S. dollar. The lowering of earnings expectations, in turn, results in bearish pressure on the shares.

However, earnings are expected to continue to grow in 2018, and the S&P 500 has been upward trending since the start of April. In fact, the index just broke above resistance at the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) and the 200-day SMA has served as solid support.

It is important to note that the percentage of S&P 500 earnings arising from foreign sales is in the low 40% range. While still very significant, it marks the lowest rate of foreign-derived sales since the early 2000s.

Despite the lowered foreign sales percentage, should the greenback continue to climb, I expect the overall S&P 500 to feel downward pressure. The bearish weight will be most significant in large multi-nationals who earn substantial profits overseas. Consider lightening your holdings in these stocks.

3. Financials And Consumer Stocks May Benefit
A strong dollar is not sorry for every sector. A strong dollar usually means a healthy economy indicating greater domestic economic activity. Greater activity leads to more consumer spending at home which lifts the earnings of consumer stocks.

Also, a climbing greenback goes hand in hand with higher interest rates, which help a financial firm’s bottom line.

Not to mention, history shows that health care and utility shares often outperform during bullish greenback time periods.

Risks To Consider: While things look utterly bullish for the U.S. dollar; no one knows if the greenback will continue higher. All we can do is make an educated guess as to future direction. Always use stops and position size wisely when investing!

Action To Take: Consider the impact of a stronger U.S. dollar when making investment decisions.

It was not intended to be a hostile takeover, he said, but it could have been perceived that way by Unilever.

    GE’s shares lost about 3% last week and shares are down more than 10% since the beginning of the year. The second-worst Dow stock so far this year is Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG), down 8.3%, followed by Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) which is down about 5.3%. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is down about 5.2%, and American Express Co. (NYSE: AXP) is down about 2.7%.

    The move is consistent with what had been seen by Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) earlier in 2018. On February 2, 2018, Chevron reported earnings and included a note regarding a 4-cent dividend hike. Chevron even noted that the hike puts the company on track to make 2018 the 31st consecutive year with an increase in annual dividend payout. The companys $0.04 per share increase in the quarterly dividend took the new payout to $1.12 per share that would be payable in March 2018.

    The historic and so far successful energy reform of Mexico apparently faces risks if the leading candidate for presidency, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador wins the elections to be held on Jul 1. After almost eight long decades of state management, Mexico opened its energy market to foreign investors through five- year (2015-2019), two rounds per annum tender plans, which enabled the country to draw investment from oil-mammoths like Royal Dutch Shell PLC (NYSE: RDS-A), Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), BP p.l.c. (NYSE: BP) and others. It effectively ended the reign of the state-run oil producer Petroleós Mexicanos (Pemex) in Mexico.

    Crude prices recovered sharply from the profit-taking that we saw ahead of yesterday’s news events, and it is in the Saudis’ best interest to maintain higher market prices as long as the Saudi Aramco deal remains in the future. That said, the U.S. dollar continues to strengthen versus the greenback’s peers, and that could act as a weight upon all commodity prices if that condition were to persist.

Major Oil Boom Shocks Short Sellers

Crude oil is finally back above $70 a barrel after suffering for a while. Before this, oil had not been at this price level in over two years. Crude only reached above $70 this past week but the question remains whether it willstay. Recent Middle East tensions have helped push the price higher as well. The current crude price still pales in comparison to what it was in 2014.

The April 30 short interest data have been compared with the previous figures, and short interest in most of these selected big oil stocks decreased.

Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) saw its short interest decrease to 20.99 million shares from the previous reading of 22.93 million. The shares were last seen trading at $129.15, in a 52-week range of $102.55 to $133.88.

Short interest in Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) decreased to 28.99 million shares from the previous 31.74 million. The stock traded at $81.30, within a 52-week range of $72.16 to $89.30.

BP PLC (NYSE: BP) short interest fell to 5.40 million shares from the previous reading of 7.95 million. Shares traded at $45.90, in a 52-week range of $33.90 to $46.85.

The number of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) shares short fell to 21.01 million from the previous level of 24.44 million. Shares were trading at $69.15, within a 52-week range of $42.27 to $70.15.

The stock traded at $15.95 a share, in a 52-week range of $7.61 to $15.77. Unfortunately, Petrobras may be trading on an entirely different set of fundamentals and sentiment due to its ongoing woes in Brazil.

Top Energy Stocks For 2018

CEFC China Energy Co. may cut half of its 30,000-strong workforce as the sprawling conglomerate faces increased financial pressures and scrutiny from Beijing, said an official at one of its units.

A deal to buy 14 percent of Rosneft PJSC, however, remains viable despite being impacted by the company’s recent troubles, Zhuang Jianzhong, vice director of CEFC’s international research unit, said Wednesday on the sidelines of an energy conference in Shanghai.

CEFC’s rapid rise peaked last year when it agreed to purchase a $9 billion stake in Rosneft, the culmination of Chairman Ye Jianming’s efforts to align his business with the overseas political and economic goals of President Xi Jinping. But things began to unravel this year as Ye, who has stepped down from management, came under investigation by Chinese authorities and financial troubles emerged.

  • [By ]

    Action To Take: Going forward, huge, integrated oil companies like Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) will need to figure out how to evolve in an environment where the price of their primary product remains flat, perhaps for decades. This will translate into flat profits and, perhaps, skinnier dividends. Currently, both stocks trade at 20-plus forward price-to-earnings ratios (PEs), much higher than their attractive historical norms. While the market has bid up these stocks, the higher multiples indicate lower-than-anticipated earnings per share (EPS).

That slump came despite OPEC’s best efforts since producing nations have achieved fairly good compliance on their planned output cuts. That said, despite the lackluster oil market, we still see some interestingopportunities in the oil market. Three stocks we really like right now are DistributionNOW(NYSE:DNOW),Phillips 66(NYSE:PSX), andConocoPhillips(NYSE:COP), which all should do well in the current oil market.
