AeroVironment, Inc.

Top Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Statoil ASA(STO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Anyone that has watched oil prices tick up recently has probably expected oil producers to report some impressive earnings results this past quarter, and Statoil (NYSE:STO) did just that with a 21% boost to the bottom line. At the same time, management is using all of its additional cash to do some wheeling and dealing that should help boost its growth possibilities in the nearer term.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Another highlight in April was that Shell gave the green light to the Vito project, which is a joint venture with Statoil (NYSE:STO) in the Gulf of Mexico. Shell and Statoil were able to cut that project’s cost estimate by 70% from the original design so that it’s now profitable at $35 a barrel. The partners expect the project to produce 100,000 BOE/D of low-cost oil and gas when it comes online in 2021.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

There are numerous trading techniques to consider for each and every options trade, so Fred Oltarsh at Options Strategy Network details five of the ones he considers extremely vital for trying to put the percentages in the trader’s favor.

The key to trading options contracts successfully (individual stocks and futures as well) is to put the percentages in your favor. This involves numerous trading techniques discussed in the Options Strategy Network options guide. Briefly, one should consider the following factors for each and every trade: 1) liquidity or the cost to initiate and liquidate the position, 2) implied volatility or the relative value of the particular option one is trading, 3) having a pre-designated point of liquidation, 4) risk/reward ratio after commissions and slippage and 5) diversification of strategies and trades.

Each analysis described above increases the likelihood of success of an individual trade. Examining the liquidity of the market that one is about to trade is the first step to increasing levels of productivity. If one is buying a stock for a long-term hold, the implications of liquidity are not as great for that trader as for the trader who intends to buy and sell stock frequently. If one is day trading, whether stocks or options, even a bid/ask spread of a penny on a low priced stock, has an impact on the bottom line. The best way to analyze it is to quickly determine the difference of the bid/ask spread as a percentage of the value of the instrument traded. Then determine what that value is per one thousand dollars invested. If the number sounds high, it’s probably worth staying away from that trade.

Hot Energy Stocks For 2019

Apple does not agree with the Trump Administration on a number of issues, including tariffs and immigration. Now the iPhone maker is speaking out about the dangers of rolling back environmental protections.

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, gave a speech that covered what the company considers the dangers of the federal government’s environmental policies at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on Thursday.

“Just a few weeks ago, the administration announced that they plan to roll back nationwide clean energy standards. The new plan risks drastically increasing emissions over the next 20 years,” said Jackson.

It was the latest move by the federal government to roll back environmental protections and safeguards enacted under the Obama administration.

The Trump administration thinks the regulatory costs of the rules stifle businesses.

Jackson, who was the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for four years under President Barack Obama, said those policies were already demonstrating real results.

Best Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Uncle Sam accidentally touched off an avalanche of energy merger announcements in the first half of 2018. All it took were two policy changes — new corporate tax rates and tweaking a rule used to set prices for energy pipelines — to erode the tax advantages for master limited partnerships (MLPs). As a result, many parent companies decided to roll up their partnerships under one roof.

Simpler organizational structures could yield significant benefits for individual investors. In addition to being easier to follow and understand, it will make it easier than ever to own some of the most important pieces of energy infrastructure in the United States. The proposed merger between Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB) and Williams Partners LP (NYSE:WPZ) is a great example, as it owns some of the best natural gas infrastructure in the United States. Here’s why investors should be bullish on the multi-billion dollar merger.

Bad news for some individual companies also weighed on sentiment. Stamps.com (NASDAQ:STMP), iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ), and Alkermes (NASDAQ:ALKS) were among the worst performers on the day.

Top 10 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018

One of the noteworthy aspects of IRAsindeed, one of the under-emphasized aspects of them in my opinionis their creditor protection status. Stated otherwise, IRAs (along with other retirement-related savings devices) can enjoy protection that prevents creditors, in many instances, from seizing the assets within the accounts. Granted, like most asset protection devices, this depends on the circumstances and the applicable law. For example, creditor protection can vary by what type of creditor is at issue (a tort creditor, contract creditor, or a family support creditor) and what law is governing the analysis (such as state collections law or federal bankruptcy law).

A recent case demonstrates the intersection between federal bankruptcy law and local law (in this case, Texas) as it applies to the exempt status of IRAsparticularly with respect to IRA rollovers (or the lack thereof).

    For example, while Apple co-developed the organic light emitting diode (OLED) display that’s used on its latest-generation iPhone X smartphone with Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) Display, Apple partner LG Display is apparently having a hard time building OLED displays for this year’s upcoming iPhone models.

    Micron has also been quickly transitioning to 3D NAND production, which carries higher margins and a wider product mix, keeping Micron’s margins afloat (although still somewhat volatile) even with a market with heavier supply than demand. The company sold the Lexar (consumer products) division shifting towards scaling output of the enterprise product lineup. Micron is now in very capable hands with its new management team, and I trust that Maddock and Mehrotra will continue to phase out their exposure to the consumer sector (where Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) currently dominates) to providing specialized business memory products as well as graphics memory to grow and sustain margins. A diverse mix of product solutions gives Micron far more pricing power, as memory becomes less commoditized and instead is tailored to improve the efficiency of a business and provide value to a firm.

    Now, this removes one big uncertainty (actually management was pretty convinced they would settle on favorable terms), but there are a few other headwinds that also led them to lower guidance when presenting Q3 figures:

    In the low end of the mobile market (imaging) they are experiencing increasing competition. They are dealing with this by concentrating on more sophisticated and integrated solutions and narrowing the strategic focus (this is already starting to pay off with design wins like the Huawei Mate 10). For now they expect imaging revenues to be at least $10M lower. The probability of recognizing revenue from Echo, a significant mobile customer for audio technologies, has progressively declined as well. Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) IP licensing is removed from the guidance as they are litigating the company for patent infringement. Management is convinced of a favorable outcome here as well (they embarked on extensive DD prior to filing), but unsure of the timing. Management believes at least $10M in licence revenues has been underreported, but likely resolution will shift this income to 2018. Roughly $5M in expected license revenue from Invensas Licensees will shift to 2018 Guidance excludes roughly $52M in cash receipts which the company can’t recognize as revenue under purchase accounting related to the DTS acquisition (see below for an explanation). This is why cash flow figures are much better than earnings figures.

    These are all somewhat messy litigation and compliance issues, but at least the Broadcom issue has been settled and much of the rest is likely to shift to 2018. About the Purchase Accounting. From company PR:

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Doubling your money in a relatively short time is much tougher. It typically involves investing in younger, less established companies that have lots of growth potential but could give a lot of ground if a few things don’t swing their way. There are, though, some stocks that look like they have a double in them over a relatively short time frame, and three of our investing contributors think Spark Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ONCE), Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO), and American Tower (NYSE:AMT) fit the bill.
