&l;span&g;For over two thousands years, scientists have experimented with ways to capture the energy of the sun. Archimedes in 212 BC, for instance, famously rigged a system of mirrors that was used to spark fires aboard enemy ships&a;mdash;sort of like an ancient heat ray. &l;/span&g;

&l;span&g;Over time, the methods of capturing solar energy have obviously evolved (and perhaps become a bit less dramatic) but there are persisting questions for scientists: How do you best store the energy from the sun, and how do you distribute it cheaply and efficiently at scale?&l;/span&g;

&l;span&g;From my perspective, as a person who cares deeply about the environment and the future of our planet, those questions are among society&a;rsquo;s most pressing concerns. Global warming is an existential threat to humanity, and we must reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. But I&a;rsquo;m also an investor who embraces the belief that fossil fuels and carbon emissions will eventually be phased out entirely. I&a;rsquo;ve been&a;nbsp;&l;a href=&q;https://www.wormcapital.com/insights/clean-energy-revolution-worm-capital&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;calling it&l;/a&g; the &a;ldquo;clean energy revolution,&a;rdquo; and to get there, we must cultivate new ideas, start anew, and listen to the boldest visionaries who are addressing these problems at a global scale. &l;/span&g;

Top Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

I’ve been skeptical – if not outright bearish – towards Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) for years now. But Twitter stock has surprised me. Even with the rather large pullback of TWTR stock the last few months, TWTR stock price has risen 20% so far this year.

I truthfully didn’t think TWTR stock price deserved to reach $20, let alone its June high of $47. After all, the company pretty much tried to sell itself two years ago, only to see Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS), Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM), and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL,GOOG) all pass on it. With Twitter’s revenue growth stagnant, I simply didn’t see much value outside of an M&A scenario.

But Twitter really has impressed me over the last few quarters. Its margins have expanded, with the company driving solid profits on a GAAP basis in the first quarter and the second quarter. The company’s share-based compensation has come down sharply. Twitter is doing a better job of bringing advertisers on board and of selling ads more efficiently and at better prices. A year ago, it looked like online advertising revenues were going almost solely to Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Google. But Twitter seems to have muscled past Snap (NYSE:SNAP), achieving a solid third-place position.

Incyte propels ruxo into pivotal study for essential thrombocytopenia

Company: Incyte (INCY)

Therapy: Ruxolitinib, a JAK2 inhibitor

Disease: Essential thrombocytopenia

News: INCY announced the initiation of a new pivotal trial for its blockbuster drug ruxolitinib, with the intention of studying the benefit of the agent in essential thrombocytopenia, a myeloproliferative disorder that leads to low platelet counts. If successful, INCY would be able to seek approval for an expanded indication for ruxolitinib, which currently includes high-risk myelofibrosis and polycythemia vera.

Looking forward: Currently, there are no particularly effective therapies for essential thrombocytopenia. Of course, there are notable contenders like Geron’s (GERN) imetelstat (although this disease isn’t really a focus for it at the moment), but when INCY gets on the case, it speaks volume, since it’s throwing a multibillion-dollar gorilla at the disease. So this potential expansion is a rather interesting development for a number of reasons.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

The global market for alternative energy soared to $1.35 trillion last year, and that’s just the beginning of this explosive industry growth.

For savvy investors, right now is the perfect time to get in early on alternative energy investments as renewable energy begins overtaking the energy market.

You see, the need for energy is a constant across the globe. And demand for energy is only going up. In fact, the EIA forecasts the demand for energy worldwide will rise another 25% by 2040.

That sort of growth alone makes investing in energy a profitable strategy. But the source of the world’s energy is rapidly changing.

The EIA forecasts clean energy investments like solar, wind, and hydro could pass coal and natural gas as the top source for electrical power in the United States by 2040.

    In recent years, investors have become increasingly fearful about the so-called “death of the mall.” As a result, shares of top-tier mall REITs like Taubman Centers (NYSE:TCO), Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG), GGP (NYSE:GGP), and Macerich (NYSE:MAC) have tended to trade at a discount to their net asset values (NAV), the underlying value of their assets.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018: Sunoco LP(SUN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    That’s the case for Sunoco (NYSE: SUN). After posting a net loss of $0.09 per share in 2017, the gas station owner is expected to swing to a hefty profit of $2.35 per share in 2018. But of the 14 analysts who follow the company, earnings estimates range as low as $1.22 and as high as $3.35 — so there is a high degree of uncertainty.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    However, he did rule out the possibility that the company would also roll up its other MLP Sunoco LP (NYSE:SUN). He said that “we’re very pleased with what we’re seeing at SUN as far as the growth that they will be directing that MLP into. And as you know, SUN is younger in the IDR life.” Because of that “for the reasonable future, we don’t see that being rolled up.”

Thats right: 50% of all cancer deaths might be prevented with some simple changes in the way you eat, drink and live.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Own For 2019: Occidental Petroleum Corporation(OXY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We have seen several dividend cuts in the recent past, including Anadarko Petroleum cutting its dividend by 81%…and we expect more companies to follow suit. Chesapeake Energy (CHK), ConocoPhillips (COP), Encana,Marathon Oil and Noble Energy (NBL) are among energy companies that have also cut dividends in the past 12 months, but dividend requirements even after several cuts will consume ~26% of 2016 estimated cash flow at current dividend rates (15% excluding Occidental Petroleum (OXY)) for the large cap E&Ps we cover. We believe most of the companies with a dividend yield of more than 1.5% should consider cutting the dividend and find the following companies more likely than not to reduce dividends:Apache (2.5% yield),Devon Energy (4%),Encana (1.5%) andMarathon Oil (2.5%). We believe Canadian Natural Resource (CNQ) (3.0%) is likely to maintain its dividend while Occidental (4.5%) has the financial strength to maintain or even increase the dividend…

    Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGNX) shares shot up 29 percent to $6.37 after announcing the FDA approval of RELISTOR tablets for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation in adults with chronic non-cancer pain.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    After meeting with the senior management team of Progenics (PGNX) , Valeant’s partner for oral Relistor, we continue to think that this drug would be a good addition to Valeant’s GI (gastrointestinal) franchise. The PDUFA date for oral Relistor is 7/19/16. AlthoughValeant is leading interactions with the FDA, Progenics is highly confident regarding an approval in July based on its discussions with Valeant. Progenics believes that oral Relistor could be a $1B+ opportunity for Valeant, even with the recent decrease in opioid usage. For context, we estimate ’16 sales of $9.9B for Valeant. An approval for oral Relistor would also help remind the Street that Valeant’s brand drug pipeline is underappreciated, in our view. We think pipeline advancements for brand drugs could drive multiple expansion forValeant shares (on P/E).

Wonderful thinks the investor. After all, building that retirement nest egg is the goal, so my rate of return is what matters most.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Watch For 2018: TC PipeLines, LP(TCP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That funding progress is important given an unexpected development in the quarter when the Federal Regulatory Commission (FERC) revised a long-standing policy and will no longer allow master limited partnerships to collect an allowance for income taxes on certain pipelines. That change could have a major impact on the cash flows of TransCanada’s MLP TC Pipelines, LP (NYSE:TCP). While TC Pipelines isn’t sure how much this change will impact its cash flow, it took precautionary actions by slashing its distribution to investors. That payout reduction and the related uncertainty has weighed significantly on TC Pipelines’ valuation. Because of that, Girling said that “further dropdowns of assets by TransCanada into TC Pipelines is not considered a viable funding option at this time,” and he isn’t sure if it will be one in the future. However, he did clarify that even without future dropdowns to TC Pipelines, TransCanada believes it has the “financial capacity to fund our existing capital program through our predictable and growing cash flow from operations as well as several other funding alternatives.”

    TRP has decided to buy out CPPL as well and merge its assets back into its now-larger self. The real win will come when TRP drops down these newly acquired assets into its own MLP TC PipeLines, LP (TCP). TransCanada hasnt been able to fully use TCP as the bulk of its assets are Canadian and ineligible for inclusion.

    Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.
