As the amount of renewable energy in global electricity networks continues to surge, a new question arises &a;ndash; when will renewables become the dominant source of energy?

A new report, the &l;a href=&q;https://www.lr.org/techradar&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Lloyd&a;rsquo;s Register 2018 Technology Radar&l;/a&g;, examines this issue and also looks at which technologies are likely to have the biggest impact in different countries and what are the key drivers and barriers to success.

A survey of 800 key industry figures found that China would be the first country to achieve grid parity, in 2022, followed by Spain and the United Arab Emirates two years later in 2024. This is the same year that Germany and the UK are expected to see grid parity for wind power, followed a year later by Denmark and the USA. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) &l;a href=&q;http://www.irena.org/newsroom/pressreleases/2018/Jan/Onshore-Wind-Power-Now-as-Affordable-as-Any-Other-Source&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;said recently&l;/a&g; that clean energy sources will be cheaper than fossil fuels by 2020.

    And with just a few smart plays in today’s classic stock picker’s market, you can pull in triple-digit gains with just a small investment.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
    The Lira slumped 6% on news that the Trump administration is willing to increase economic sanctions on the embattled country unless it releases Andrew Brunson, an American evangelical pastor who has been detained. Markets spent most of Thursday cheering trade developments between U.S. and China, largely ignoring this ongoing drama. However, it’s important to remember that Turkey’s currency crisis may be a tremendous profit opportunity. Here’s what you need to know. Semiconductor shares fell this morning as investors worried that the two-year surge in chip companies could be losing steam. Shares of Applied Materials (Nasdaq: AMAT) fell more than 5% after the world’s largest semiconductor company fell short of quarterly expectations and issued a rather unimpressive outlook. The news pulled down shares of Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU) and Intel Corporation (NYSE: INTU).
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: DE, NVDA, JWN
    A light day of earnings reports features just Deere & Company (NYSE: DE). The agricultural machinery giant will attempt to keep momentum going despite the ongoing slump in farm incomes around the country. With soybean and corn prices moving lower, many farmers might now be able to purchase “new paint” – also known as new machinery. This factor could impact the company’s forward guidance. Shares of NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) were off 2.5% after the firm reported quarterly earnings after the bell Thursday. The firm topped Wall Street earnings expectations by 10 cents with a $1.76 figure. However, the firm reduced its current quarter guidance due to falling demand in the cryptocurrency industry. Shares of Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) popped more than 7% after the firm reported stronger than expected same-story growth and positive earnings expectation. The firm r

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Sanofi(SNY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Cory Renauer]

    Amgen’s next-generation cholesterol drug, Repatha has finally started marching upwards in recent quarters, but it could stall out in the quarters ahead. One of America’s largest pharmacy benefits managers recently dropped Repatha in favor of a rival therapy from Regeneron (NASDAQ:REGN) and Sanofi (NYSE:SNY). That puts a lot of strain on the only other younger products generating significant sales growth right now.

    Shares of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:REGN) created a high-water mark around three and a half years ago that’s still 51% above recent prices. The drugs it outlicensed to its big pharma partner, Sanofi (NYSE:SNY), succeeded in the clinic. Unfortunately, commercial launches that take baby steps when investors expect giant leaps can pressure even a biotech’s stock price no matter how productive its discovery engine may be.

    Through a collaboration with Sanofi SA (NYSE:SNY), Regeneron has successfully developed and launched a cholesterol-busting drug, Praluent, an eczema drug, Dupixent, and a rheumatoid arthritis drug, Kevzara. All three of those drugs target massive megablockbuster indications, but it’s Praluent and Dupixent that I find most intriguing.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019: Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.(HA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    At an industry conference last week, Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) CEO Peter Ingram told reporters that Hawaiian Airlines had experienced a modest decline in bookings due to the continued eruption of Kilauea: a volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

    However, one U.S. airline is uniquely suited to weather the current environment of rising fuel prices: Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA). Furthermore, Hawaiian Holdings stock trades for just seven times forward earnings, which makes this company a particularly attractive investment opportunity.

    As a result, speculation about when flights will begin is ramping up. Additionally, many Hawaii residents are rooting for Southwest to add interisland flights within Hawaii. This would break the near-monopoly held by Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) subsidiary Hawaiian Airlines.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    In addition to the Trans Mountain system, two other pipeline projects currently are proposed to move crude oil from Alberta either to the Great Lakes or the Gulf Coast. Enbridge Inc. (NYSE: ENB) is proposing to replace its 50-year old Line 3 system to transport 760,000 barrels a day to Superior, Wisconsin. TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) has received approval from the Trump administration and would transport 830,000 barrels a day to Nebraska where existing pipelines will take over, sending the crude to U.S. refineries and Gulf Coast terminals.

  • [By Jason Hall]

    Priestley:Yeah,absolutely. The last company is also on this natural gas trend,it’s TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), ticker TRP. It’s aCanadian energy infrastructure company. They have assets in the U.S.,Canada, obviously, and Mexico. Theyoperate 40,000 miles of natural gas pipeline. Anotable project that they operate is the Keystone XL Pipeline and theKeystone Pipeline system. Italso has interests in 20 powergeneration facilities,mostly in Canada. And, they have significant scale as a midstream company. I kind of like these midstream players, because they’re really winners,so to speak, in a lot of respects. A lot of the contracts that they make with the oil refiners or the oilcompanies themselves are 15-20-year contracts.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One company with a looming catalyst on the horizon is TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). It will pay its next quarterly dividend in July. To qualify for that payment, investors need to own shares of the Canadian oil and gas pipeline company before the end of June. And while collecting that upcoming dividend is a good reason to consider buying shares this month, it’s far from the only one.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projectslast year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

David Cates, the President and CEO of Denison Mines Corp,gave the following commentary:

“2017 was a volatile year for the uranium market. While the spot price of uranium benefited from upward momentum on multiple occasions during the year, that momentum was not sustained long enough for a meaningful change to the low price environment that saw the market reach 12 and 13 year lows in late 2016. Despite these disappointing market trends, Denison managed to have another productive year as we continue to focus on our strategy of positioning the Company for the future and a return to a much higher uranium price.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018

The Florida citrus industry was already in big trouble even before Hurricane Irma started closing in. Now experts are worried that the storm could be the final straw that tips many growers into bankruptcy.

The problem until now has not been storms but a disease, known as citrus greening. It’s spread by an insect, and leaves the fruit green, bitter and unusable. As a result, Florida orange production has declined by about 50% in just the last five years.

“The citrus industry here is fighting for its very existence,” said Lisa Lochridge, spokeswoman for the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association. “This is the last thing we need.”

Even with that reduced production, the state’s citrus industry employs more than 45,000 people and generates more than $8 billion in total sales, according to state data. If Irma does strike Florida’s orchards, it will be an economic disaster for the already struggling industry said Tom Spreen, professor emeritus at the University of Florida.

    For the third quarter, the company reported cash and equivalents of $470.4 million, while net income came in at $50 million (includes a gain of $78.7 million from the Immunomedics’ warrant).

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

March has brought madness to airline stocks, including United Continental Holdings (UAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), and American Airlines (AAL). But the recent pullbacks aren’t a buying opportunity, say Imperial Michael Derchin and Adam Hackel.

Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

I recommended United Continental on Nov. 19, the week that Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) placed a bet on the group. And while the recommendation had been looking good until this week, when United Continental said it would be expanding capacity. That caused its shares to drop shares to drop 6.9% this week–and my bet to become a loser with a 1.4% drop since I recommended it.

So should you hang on to your airline shares? Not to hear Imperial’s Derchin and Hackel tell it:

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wall Street had another good session on Thursday, with further gains for major markets as benchmarks like the Russell 2000 index of small-cap stocks flirted with record highs. A favorable reading from the consumer price index showed only modest growth in prices, and the idea that inflation remains in check led market participants to believe that the Federal Reserve won’t have to speed up its efforts to return short-term interest rates to more normal levels. Yet even with the overall market picking up ground, some companies had bad news that weighed on their share prices. Booking Holdings (NASDAQ:BKNG), Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), and L Brands (NYSE:LB) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Medical Stocks To Own For 2018

Even just a decade ago, many of those who supported widespread legalization of marijuana carried a heavy stereotype: left-leaning hippies who only wanted legal pot so they could smoke it freely.

But today, that characterization couldn’t be further from the truth. There are 29 states in the U.S. that have some form of medical and/or recreational weed legalized. The international cannabis industry is worth about $7.7 billion now and is expected to grow to as much as $30 billion by 2021.

A record 64% of Americans polled by Gallup think marijuana should be made legal across the U.S., and a record 45% of Americans have tried marijuana.

What was once a red and blue issue has now attracted a growing set of proponents from both sides of the aisle. If you think legalizing pot is about politics alone anymore, you’re one of the dumbest on Wall Street.
