Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

With today marking eight years from the bottom in the stock market, let’s talk about why it bottomed. And then take look at the run up in stocks since 2008.

First, why did stocks (the S&P 500) turn at 666 on March 9, 2009?

Policymakers were scrambling to stop the bleeding in banks, trying to unfreeze global credit and stop the dominos from continuing to fall.

The Fed had already launched a program a few months earlier to buy up mortgage-backed securities, to push down mortgage rates and to stop the implosion in housing. Global central banks had already slashed interest rates in an attempt to stimulate the economy. The U.S. had announced a $787 fiscal stimulus package a few weeks earlier. And then finance ministers and central bankers from the top 20 countries in the world met in London on March 14.

Here’s what they said in the opening of their communique: “We have taken decisive, coordinated and comprehensive action to boost demand and jobs, and are prepared to take whatever action is necessary until growth is restored.”

    Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) is in the middle of a big battle between the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Motion Picture Academy. According to the letter, the DOJ is concerned about a recent rule change by the MPA that requires films to be released more widely in traditional movie theaters to qualify for Academy Awards. This could limit the participation in these awards for companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN). The DOJ suggests the rule may raise anti-trust concerns in the future. Shares of Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY) popped more than 7.5% after the restaurant and gaming chain topped Wall Street earnings expectations.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Crestwood had talked about potentially increasing its distribution this year but decided to hold it flat for 2019. That will allow it to retain more cash to finance some additional expansion projects so that it doesn’t negatively affect its financial profile. One of those projects is a $60 million investment to expand its Arrow water gathering system in the Bakken to support the growth of Enerplus (NYSE:ERF). Crestwood couldn’t pass up this opportunity since the long-term agreement with Enerplus implies an investment multiple of 4, which is higher than its average project.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Overall, Crestwood expects to invest $275 million to $325 million into expansion projects this year, slightly above its initial forecast to spend between $250 million and $300 million on capital projects. One driver of the increased budget is that oil and gas producer Enerplus (NYSE:ERF) awarded the company a contract to expand its water system in the Bakken. Crestwood expects to invest $60 million over the next two years on this project, which will help support Enerplus’ volume growth in the region. Meanwhile, the company is in advanced discussions with customers to provide a range of midstream services in the Delaware Basin, which could include building a new natural gas processing plant in the region.

    The stock market was mostly higher on Monday, with market participants celebrating favorable economic news on the consumer front and looking forward to another round of positive earnings reports when third-quarter earnings season starts early next month. Tax cuts have helped corporate earnings throughout 2018, and that’s generally helped to lift the overall market. Yet even with several major market benchmarks at or near record levels, some stocks weren’t able to participate in the gains today. Brown-Forman (NYSE:BF-B), Acorda Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ACOR), and Energy XXI Gulf Coast (NASDAQ:EXXI) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Enbridge Inc(ENB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Shares of Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) came roaring back in January. After tumbling 20% in 2018 due in part to a late sell-off in the oil market, shares of the Canadian oil pipeline giant rebounded 17.8% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Driving that rally was a bounce back in the oil market as well as some bullish notes by analysts who follow the company.

    Pembina Pipeline Corp. (NYSE:PBA) isn’t a name that most investors are probably familiar with since it’s a Canadian company. Not only that, but it’s much smaller than its more well-known national rivals Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which have made their share of headlines in the U.S. due to some controversial pipeline projects.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While hiring a bank to lead the sales process doesn’t mean Kinder Morgan will find buyers willing to pay its asking price, the report suggested that “interest in the assets would be robust, and bids are likely to come from both midstream companies, private equity firms, and infrastructure funds.” Recent M&A activity in the country backs up that view. For example, in April, Canadian energy infrastructure giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) hired advisors to explore the sale of some of its natural gas gathering and processing assets in the western part of the country. That initial report said that Enbridge hoped to sell at least a portion of that business for more than CA$2 billion ($1.5 billion). By July, Enbridge agreed to a CA$4.3 billion ($3.3 billion) bid by an infrastructure fund-led consortium for its entire gas gathering and processing business in Western Canada. It was only one of several notable deals for midstream assets in recent years, in what has been a seller’s market.

    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 Matthew DiLallo]

    In addition to that, Brookfield has agreed to buy Enbridge’s (NYSE:ENB) Western Canadian natural gas gathering and processing business. The company will invest about $540 million in the acquisition, giving it a stake in the largest operation of its kind in Canada, which has it strategically positioned for expansion. Meanwhile, Enbridge will use the cash to pay down debt and fund its large slate of expansion projects.

    Oil prices have improved dramatically over the past year as OPEC’s move to drain off the supply glut proved more successful than envisioned. That rising tide has lifted most oil stocks.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.- Petrobras(PBR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Tuesday continued to show a stock market divided, as major benchmarks that focus on large-cap stocks kept powering higher even as small-cap indexes lost more ground. The Dow Jones Industrial Average posted triple-digit gains to finish at a record, but weakness from the technology sector weighed on the Nasdaq Composite. Investors seem to believe that the resolution of some key trade disputes favors large multinationals over small domestic companies, and some foreign stocks also had good showings. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Lamb Weston Holdings (NYSE:LW), and IAMGOLD (NYSE:IAG) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Short interest at Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (NYSE: PBR), or Petrobras, decreased to 42.60 million shares from the previous 43.43 million. The stock traded at $10.52 a share, in a 52-week range of $9.02 to $17.20. Unfortunately, Petrobras may be trading on an entirely different set of fundamentals and sentiment due to its ongoing woes in Brazil.

    Stocks fell on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing modestly lower but with other major benchmarks closing nearly unchanged. Investors largely recovered from an early decline following the White House decision to cancel its scheduled meeting next month with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, instead focusing mostly on economic fundamentals that remain favorable throughout much of the world. Some individual companies, however, had to deal with adversity that sent their shares lower. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), and Luxoft Holding (NYSE:LXFT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    The stock market came out of Labor Day weekend on a sluggish note, but it recovered ground by the end of the session to finish close to where it had started. Lingering doubts about the status of trade discussions with key trading partners initially caused major benchmarks to fall around half a percent in the morning. Once again, though, stocks proved their resiliency, and investors seemed more comfortable with the idea that corporate earnings would remain strong at least through the end of the year. Moreover, some strong showings from key stocks helped lift sentiment. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP), and El Pollo Loco Holdings (NASDAQ:LOCO) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    However, the big capacity boost will come toward the end of next year, when as many as three large-scale pipelines could enter service. Plains All American Pipeline’s Cactus II should begin partial service by the third quarter of next year before starting full service of 670,000 BPD by April of 2020. Meanwhile, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) and Andeavor (NYSE:ANDV) are building the Grey Oak Pipeline, which could move as much as 800,000 BPD to the Gulf Coast. Phillips 66 Partners and Andeavor plan to spend $2 billion to build the pipeline, which should start up by the end of 2019. That line would not only bring oil to refineries in the region but also to a new export dock under construction by Phillips 66 Partners, Andeavor, and another partner. Finally, the private equity–backed EPIC crude pipeline is also expected to start construction by the end of this year, which would put it in service by the second half of 2019.

Add it up, and that’s more than 2 million BPD of pipeline capacity. Meanwhile, Energy Transfer and Magellan Midstream are expanding several existing lines, which could add another 400,000 BPD next year.

    The Sweeny Hub expansion is a “key part of our midstream growth strategy,” said Garland, as it “further optimizes our integrated NGL value chain.” That chain starts with a link to fast-growing production basins to the West via pipelines co-owned by DCP Midstream and the company’s other MLP, Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP). Last month, those companies announced that they would connect their Southern Hills NGL pipeline to the DJ Basin, which would bring more NGL volumes toward Phillips 66’s Sweeny Hub. Meanwhile, the companies are also expanding their Sand Hills NGL Pipeline to move volumes from the Permian Basin toward Sweeny.

    2018 is turning out to be an excellent year for oil stocks. Since the start of 2018, the two most commonly quoted oil benchmark prices — Brent and WTI — are up 17% and 13%, respectively, and they are taking the prospects of many oil stocks with them. Three companies that stand out as rather impressive performers so far this year are independent oil producer Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) and oil services companies Oceaneering International (NYSE:OII) and Noble Corporation (NYSE:NE). All three stocks are up more than 30% year to date, which I’m sure comes as a welcome sight after the past few years.

Best Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you probably know that countries around the world are trying to slowly phase out coal from the power grid. And they’ve largely succeeded. Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU), one of the world’s largest producers, has lost nearly 90% of its market value over the past five years.

But across from any loser there is a winner. In this case, natural gas has supplanted coal as the chief power source in the developed world. It accounts for one-third of the electricity in the United States, more than coal, nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, and all other sources.

A tiny Silicon Valley company just made an announcement that shocked the tech world… They reported that they recently received FCC approval for a revolutionary new device that does something many people had previously thought impossible — something that, until now, only existed in science fiction. And once this new technology gets incorporated into hotels, restaurants, airports, coffee shops, and even entire cities… it could be a trillion-dollar business. Click here to discover what this new technology is, and how it’s about to forever change your life.

That’s partially because it’s plentiful and inexpensive, but also cleaner-burning and more environmentally friendly — emitting less than one-tenth the pollutants of coal. Natural gas will play a key role in meeting the future energy needs of a growing world.

Top Energy Stocks For 2019: Ballard Power Systems, Inc.(BLDP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That much becomes clear after taking a look at fuel cell stocks Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP). The companies generated just $235 million in revenue combined last year. While that would seem to indicate that the technology has a ways to go, a closer look shows both companies are on an upward trajectory as they position to exploit decarbonization trends. It also reveals two different growth strategies.

    Riding the wave of enthusiasm for alternative power, Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) has made great strides in bringing its hydrogen-power solutions to the materials handling equipment market. Thanks, in part, to deals with the world’s largest retailers like Walmart and Amazon, Plug Power has grown its top line at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21% over the past 10 years. This is no small feat considering that Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP), which is arguably Plug Power’s greatest fuel-cell competitor, has only grown its top line by an average of 8% annually over the same period.

    Fuel cell stocks tend to be more volatile than the average equity, owing at least in part to the ever-changing business models of the industry. But even that makes it difficult to explain the wild ride Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP) shareholders have been on in the last year.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That may not be surprising to investors considering the massive Chinese market has lifted diverse sectors and industries in the last two decades, but China may prove critical to the success of struggling fuel cell stocks. Can Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP) and Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) capitalize on the opportunity in the East?

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

Between now and 2050, global demand for air conditioners in buildings will rise from 1.6 billion to 5.6 billion. That means that 10 new AC units will be sold every second for the next 30 years.

The data were reported earlier this week by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in a study titled “The Future of Cooling.”

Demand for AC already accounts for about 20% of all electricity used in buildings around the world and about 10% of global electricity consumption. AC use is expected to be the second-largest source of global electricity demand growth after the industry sector, and the strongest driver for buildings by 2050.

Fewer than a third of all global households own an air conditioner today. More than 90% of households in the United States and Japan have AC compared to just 8% of the 2.8 billion people living in the hottest parts of the world.

IEAExecutive Director Fatih Birol commented:

Growing electricity demand for air conditioning is one of the most critical blind spots in today’s energy debate. With rising incomes, air conditioner ownership will skyrocket, especially in the emerging world. While this will bring extra comfort and improve daily lives, it is essential that efficiency performance for ACs be prioritized. Setting higher efficiency standards for cooling is one of the easiest steps governments can take to reduce the need for new power plants, and allow them at the same time to cut emissions and reduce costs.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2018

Either low-income Americans became rich this Black Friday, or Wal-Mart’s (NYSE:WMT) marketers do not know what they are doing.

For years, $133,653 Cartier watches and expensive jewelry were sold in upper scale stores, where high income Americans prefer to shop on Black Friday. 

This year, Cartier watches are being sold on the Walmart.com site.

But who will buy them? Will high income Americans trade the upscale store for Wal-Mart’s site? That sounds very unlikely to me. Shopping for luxury items is usually more about the experience of shopping rather than about price.

What about Wal-Mart’s low-income shoppers? That’s unlikely, too, as they cannot afford items that sell at a hefty multiple of their annual income. Besides, some of Wal-Mart’s shoppers do not even use credit cards, so how can they purchase $133,653 watches on-line?

For more than three decades, Wal-Mart ruled the US retailing industry. Its large stores and everyday low prices were too much for smaller neighborhood stores and supermarkets. Result? They went out of business shortly after Wal-Mart invaded their turf.

    Back on December 5th of 2013, we added Corning (GLW) to our list around $16 and change. The stock ended up moving to a high of just over $25 per share early last year for roughly a 50% gain. Well, the stock has since come off again trading all the way back down to under $16 per share back in August of last year, before finding its way back up above $18 just yesterday. The context here is two-fold. First, the valuation metrics for GLW are once again suggesting another undervalued opportunity for a Company that is the clear leader in specialty glass and ceramics.

Top 10 Casino Stocks For 2019

Australian billionaire James Packer resigned from his gaming empire Wednesday.

Crown Resorts announced that Packer is stepping down for “personal reasons.”

“We have appreciated James’ contribution to the board and respect his decision to step down from his role as a director at this time,” Crown Resorts executive chairman John Alexander said in a statement.

It is just the latest public setback for the casino and entertainment mogul.

Packer is best known in the United States for his brief engagement to pop singer Mariah Carey.

In recent months, his name has been linked to a major corruption investigation tied to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Israeli authorities have named Netanyahu as a suspect in multiple criminal investigations in Israel, including a case where police say he received gifts worth 1 million shekels ($280,000) from overseas businessmen.

    Wall Street had its Cinco de Mayo celebration a day early, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished the session with a gain of more than 330 points. Investors were excited about what they saw as a Goldilocks-like reading on the U.S. economy in the April employment report, which featured modest job growth, rock-bottom unemployment rates, and slow enough wage growth to quell inflation fears and give the Federal Reserve latitude to raise interest rates more slowly going forward. Yet some companies still suffered at least perceived setbacks that sent their shares lower. Fluor (NYSE:FLR), Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), and Appian (NASDAQ:APPN) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    The company lost $0.13 per share for the quarter, which was a big surprise, as analyst estimates called for earnings per share of $0.77. Revenue of $4.8 billion came in slightly ahead of the $4.69 billion expectation, but wasn’t enough to overcome the surprise loss.

    IBM CEO Ginni Rometty. Image source: IBM.

    5 reasons to buy IBM
    IBM posted its second straight quarter of annual sales growth after almost six years of declines. Its revenue rose 5% annually to $19.07 billion, beating estimates by $390 million. Its non-GAAP earnings also grew 4% to $2.45, topping expectations by $0.06. IBM’s closely watched “strategic imperatives” (SI) revenue — which comes from its higher-growth cloud, social, mobile, security, and analytics businesses — rose 12% annually (10% on a constant currency basis) to $37.7 billion over the past 12 months. That accounted for 47% of IBM’s revenue, compared to42% a year earlier. This tells us that Big Blue’s shift from legacy businesses to higher-growth ones is gradually paying off.IBM also noted, without disclosing an exact figure, that its security revenues also rose 60% annually during the quarter. IBM’s total cloud revenue over the past 12 months rose 22% annually (20% in constant currency) to $17.7 billion. For the quarter, its higher-growth cloud-as-a-service revenue rose 25% annually (20% in constant currency) to $10.7 billion, compared to 20% reported growth in the fourth quarter. Three of IBM’s four computing business segments (Cognitive Solutions, Global Business Services, and Technology Services & Cloud Platforms) posted positive annual sales growth and topped analyst estimates. IBM’s stock remains fairly cheap at less than 11 times this year’s earnings, and it pays a forward dividend yield of 3.8%. That low valuation and high yield should limit its downside potential.
    5 reasons to sell IBM
    IBM’s total sales were buoyed by a weak dollar. On a constant currency basis, its revenue actually stayed flat year over year during the quarter. On a constant currency basis, its Global Business Services and Technology Solutions & Cloud Platforms revenue would both have declined 1% annually. Its Cognitive Solutions revenue rose 6% in dollars, but just 2% on a constant currency basis. The

    Other companies have followed suit with great success, including PaneraBread (NASDAQ:PNRA), which has focused on improving the customer experience, including via shorter wait times.

Never underestimate the power of a restaurant redo, Cramer concluded.

  • [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.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

According to a report by Bloomberg, Saudi Arabia wants to push the price of crude up from its current level of $65-$70to near $80 a barrel. The Middle Eastern nation needs that price to boost the valuation of its national oil company, Saudi Aramco, which it plans to take public next year. Hitting its desired sell price would provide the Kingdom with the funds needed to jump-start an investment strategy that would wean its economy off petrol dollars over the next decade.

Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

    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 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Halliburton Company(HAL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Halliburton (HAL) : “I liked Halliburton’s analyst day, but I think Schlumberger (SLB) is even better.”

    Noble Energy (NBL) : “Noble’s good. It’s a very well-run, conservative company. It should do well in this environment.”

  • [By WWW.KIPLINGER.COM]

    But what really differentiates SLB from rivals such as Halliburton Company (HAL) is its client list.
