Hot Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: AltaGas Ltd. (ATGFF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    If you are looking for high-yield stocks, it’s very likely that Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. (NYSE:FGP) and AltaGas Ltd. (NASDAQOTH:ATGFF) will be of interest to you, sporting impressive yields of 12% and 8.3%, respectively. Often a higher yield is a good thing, but in this situation, you are probably better off going with the lower, though still robust, yield offered by AltaGas. Here’s why.

  • [By ]

    AltaGas (OTCPK:ATGFF) agreed to acquire WGL (WGL) in January 2017, and the acquisition is still pending regulatory approval in DC, which is expected mid-2018. WGL operates Washington Gas, the gas utility in the region. The interesting play here I think is AltaGas. It offers a fairly well covered 8.5%+ dividend but has been beaten down as a result of concerns over the price paid for the WGL acquisition and the debt it will be required to take on in the deal. If the WGL acquisition does not receive regulatory approval, it’s very possible that AltaGas goes up. And if WGL is approved, it’s obviously a much better acquisition if Amazon picks anywhere in the DC area, as that should fuel a significant population increase for the gas utility business (some estimates of up to 1 million over 10 to 15 years). The projected growth in the gas utility business can serve as the foundation for AltaGas’s broader operations and allow them to finance debt at more attractive levels going forward. A mere re-rating to a market AFFO multiple would lead to substantial gains from the current 10-20% discount to market AFFO multiples, and a premium driven by the growth in Washington Gas could warrant a 10-20% premium to market AFFO multiples.

    Quarterly dividends are the norm in the United States, and if you’re leaning on dividend income, quarterly budgeting is different from monthly budgeting. However, there’s another option if you look hard enough, with Canadian energy companies Vermilion Energy Inc. (NYSE:VET) and AltaGas Ltd. (NASDAQOTH:ATGFF) offering both monthly dividends and sizable yields.

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2019: Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc(HMNY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Multiplex operators hated Helios and Matheson Analytics’ (NASDAQ:HMNY) MoviePass, claiming that the dirt-cheap subscription service that offered up a screening a day for just $9.95 a month was devaluing the product. The MoviePass model never made financial sense for Helios and Matheson, which has to pay retail price for most of the movie tickets purchased, but it was a mother lode for film buffs that topped 3 million members over the summer.

    It’s becoming clear with the success that AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) is having with AMC Stubs A-List that MoviePass parent Helios and Matheson Analytics (NASDAQ:HMNY) was simply ahead of its time — and its pocketbook. AMC announced that its movie subscription service is now up to 380,000 subscribers after just three months of availability. The multiplex operator’s service that allows the viewing of at least a dozen films a month has grown its rolls by 120,000 — up 46% — in just the past six weeks.
