Infrastructure fundraising in Mexico picked up rapidly in 2018, according to stock exchange filings and the government website &l;a href=&q;https://www.proyectosmexico.gob.mx/en/home/&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Proyectos Mexico&l;/a&g;.

Both the number of new funds and the amount raised reached record highs last year. Fundraising in Mexico picked up rapidly in 2018, with fundraising of new and previous funds 38.5% higher than in 2017 and more than double compared to 2016.

But how these funds will be allocated is open to question given the context of cancellations and delays in project procurement by the new presidential administration, such as the $13 billion Mexico City airport project.

Of the 26 large infrastructure and energy funds (&l;a href=&q;https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/mx/Documents/tax/FIBRA-E-Tax-Eng.pdf&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Certificates of Capital Development &a;ndash;CKD&a;ndash; and Certificates of Project Investment &a;ndash;CERPI&a;ndash;&l;/a&g;) launched in Mexico, eight were launched in 2018, with over $420 million of capital raised. In 2018, for the first time, more CERPIs were launched than CKDs.

    Friday was a good day on Wall Street, as positive news on the domestic political front spurred market participants to send stock benchmarks to substantial gains. Earnings season has reached its peak, but overall, investors have been a lot more comfortable with the idea that sustained economic growth could last further into 2019 than they were during the stock market’s swoon in December. Nevertheless, not every company was able to find success during a tough period. Newell Brands (NYSE:NWL), TrueCar (NASDAQ:TRUE), and XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Codexis, Inc.(CDXS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Growth stocks can deliver most of your portfolio’s gains, and even make up for a few laggards. But they have a downside: One misstep can be all it takes for Wall Street to turn against them. That’s exactly what’s happened in 2018 to the world’s top lithium producer, Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), and the most reputable marijuana stock, Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG). That shouldn’t scare investors from buying high-growth companies, however. For instance, it looks as if tiny biotech Codexis (NASDAQ:CDXS) will grow into its premium valuation (and then some) sooner rather than later.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

Green investing in the U.K. fell 56 percent last year, sparking concerns in Parliament that the nation will not maintain its lead in clean energy or meet climate targets after leaving the European Union.

“Billions of pounds of investment is needed in clean energy, transport, heating and industry to meet our carbon targets,” said Mary Creagh, a member of Parliament who leads the the Environmental Audit Committee. “A dramatic fall in investment is threatening the government’s ability to meet legally binding climate change targets.”

The U.K. is a leader in clean energy, particularly offshore wind. Britain has installed more turbines in the sea than any other country and generated 15 percent of its electricity from wind and solar in 2016.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: American States Water Company(AWR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Neha Chamaria]

    Contrary to what many believe, it’s easier to find stocks to invest in when you’re in your 60s. That’s because your choices narrow down significantly as you filter out young, aggressive companies that typically carry higher risk. As you near retirement, you need a portfolio choc-a-block with mature, established businesses that have a visible growth path and preferably offer solid dividends to supplement your income. Three interesting stocks that fit the bill are American States Water (NYSE:AWR), A.O. Smith (NYSE:AOS), and Realty Income (NYSE:O).

The big story right now relates to the potential acquisition of MedReleaf (NASDAQOTH:MEDFF) by Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF). There’s no guarantee that a deal will be made, but the two companies announced that they were engaged in discussions.

Aurora is currently the second-largest Canadian marijuana grower by market cap, while MedReleaf fluctuates between being ranked No. 3 and No. 4. An acquisition of MedReleaf would enable Aurora to leapfrog over Canopy Growth (NASDAQOTH:TWMJF) to become the top marijuana stock on the market.

Should Aurora actually buy MedReleaf, there could be considerable pressure on Canopy to make an acquisition of its own. One obvious target to buy would be Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF), which has roughly the same market cap as MedReleaf. But would this acquisition make sense for Canopy Growth? I think it could.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Watch For 2018: Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc.(DNKN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Already, well-known short-seller Jim Chanos has disclosed a major short in the fast-growing Dunkin’ Brands Group (DNKN) .

    Dunkin’ Brands Group (DNKN) had little time to celebrate its better than expected first-quarter on Thursday as headlines erupted early that noted short-seller Jim Chanos has bet against the company. Chanos said in a TV interview that he has been short shares of Dunkin’ and Burger King/Tim Horton’s owner Restaurant Brands International (QSR) for about a year. Chanos’ main contention: valuations for the two fast-food heavyweights are too high and he thinks it’s better for restaurants to own their own real estate, rather than franchise.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

Warren Buffett aims to hold stocks forever. Were a bit less patient. But we like playing the long game: picking a few solid companies, sticking with them through tough times and hanging on for years, even a decade or more. Investing for the long haul can smooth out the risks of buying individual stocks, which may tumble or stay depressed for ages before taking off. A companys innovations may also take years to bear fruit. Moreover, businesses with attractive growth often trade at lofty prices that may not be sustainable. The longer you stick with a stock that has stumbled, however, the greater the opportunity to recoup losses (assuming the business rebounds as well). With dividend-paying stocks, you can also pocket a bit of income while you wait.

    Earnings season will kick into high gear today with the release of multiple reports from three of the nation’s top financial institutions. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co.(NYSE: WFC), and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) will all be in the spotlight today. U.S. President Donald Trump could be shaking up trade policy. However, it isn’t NAFTA or tariffs with China that are headlining the story. According to reports, Trump has requested his advisors explore American reentry into the Transpacific Partnership (TPP). President Trump pulled the United States out of TPP shortly following his inauguration. The recommendation comes after lawmakers from ag-producing states discussed the impact of leaving the deal with the administration. The decision to reenter the TPP would be very valuable to states that produce the bulk of U.S. wheat given that it would allow exporters to avoid tariffs of $65 per tonne to Japan, which is the largest export market for American wheat. Leading nations of the pact, such as Japan and Australia, reacted coolly to the president’s pivot but did not rule out the possibility of American reentry. Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) is still in focus across the financial world. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress two times this week to address his firm’s ongoing data scandal involving consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Congress’ failure to understand how the Internet works and Facebook’s business model was on full display, but Zuckerberg was able to maintain his composure as he answered questions over the two-day period.

Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc.(DNKN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Keurigs plight (actually, JABs) is worsening, with the K-cup market slowing to almost no growth now, and Keurig continuing to lose own brands share. Starbucks (SBUX) echoed the notion of a K-cup market slowdown at its seminar on Wednesday (and is guiding for its [consumer packaged goods, or CPG,] growth below recent trends), but it expects to increase its share of total CPG coffee to 20% from 15%. Come early February it will be a year since the closing of the Keurig deal for JAB Holdings. The pressure on JAB is more significant if we take into account the high leverage of the deal (JAB contributed one fourth of the $12Bn price tag). It is a tough predicament. On the one hand we argue that to make that deal work, they need to buy more (own) brands either from the retail channel (that can be extended to CPG: Dunkin (DNKN)? Panera (PNRA)?), or outright buy CPG brands (like the entire Kraft Heinz portfolio, and or Tata Groups Eight OClock brand). But can/how do they fund these deals? Maybe Mars and Warren Buffett (Mars is involved in office coffee with Starbucks), private equity, and or 3G can help? While this note is not about Positive-rated Mondelez, we have mentioned before a scenario where Kraft Heinz buys Mondelez and partly funds the deal by selling its own CPG coffee business (~$3Bn we say) to JAB as well as divests the Mondelez 20% plus stakes in Keurig (North America) and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (Western Europe), which together at this stage are worth ~$7-8Bn. But, yes, JAB will need deep-pocket partners and generous lenders. Net, JAB needs to do something soon.

    The market is treating Chipotle as if it is an Amazon, Tesla, Apple or Google, when in fact all they do is make burritos. With the money it would cost you to buy Chipotle today @ $14 billion dollars you could buy Wendy’s (WEN), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Papa John’s International (PZZA), and Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN). Chipotle would need to generate at least $24 in earnings per share in order to justify the current market cap — they are not even expected to generate half of that next year. Chipotle is expected to report Q1 on April 25 and the market, in my opinion, has already more than priced in good news.

This means that the top five credit card issuers have now halted the practice. Bitcoin sat at $7,773 this morning.

Powell takes over at an interesting time for the U.S. economy. The central bank is expected to raise interest rates three times in 2017.

    Gold prices saw a slight gain in pre-market hours. But those gains could surge as markets continue to face questions about inflation and a weaker U.S. dollar. Gold prices saw one of their biggest one-day declines in two months on Friday. Investors are looking at this as a solid entry point given price expectations from Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth. Peter expects that gold prices will reach $1,400 by the end of June and rise to as high as $1,500 by December.
