Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

What happened

Shares of Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE) surged as much as 22.7% today, before losing a little steam in afternoon trading. As of 12:20 p.m. EDT, shares were up 13.6% in very heavy trading. At this writing, more than 5 million shares have traded hands, about five times the average volume for the company’s stock. 

Today’s big jump isn’t from the company’s earnings, which will be released later today after market close, but due to a surprise announcement that global oil and gas giant Total S.A. (ADR) (NYSE:TOT) has agreed to take a 25% stake in Clean Energy, with a deal to buy 50.8 million shares for $83.4 million.

So what

In addition to an investment that would make Total the largest shareholder of Clean Energy stock, it is also partnering with the company to launch a leasing program to help accelerate adoption of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles. As part of this program, Total would provide up to $100 million of credit to fund leases.

Stocks across Europe gained ground Friday, with Greece’s major index leading the way higher after the eurozone agreed a debt-relief plan for after the country’s bailout ends

Also helping sentiment was data showing business activity picked up in the eurozone after a slowdown. But the pan-European index was still on course for its worst week in three months.

Top 5 Performing Stocks To Watch Right Now: Lockheed Martin Corporation(LMT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Two contractors, Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), are involved in roughly 97% of the Pentagon’s munition and missile procurement funding. The report could present both a risk to those companies should the government seek to diversify or a boon if future appropriations prioritize funding for new-program development.

  • [By Max Byerly]

    Investors bought shares of Lockheed Martin Co. (NYSE:LMT) on weakness during trading on Friday. $286.63 million flowed into the stock on the tick-up and $69.29 million flowed out of the stock on the tick-down, for a money net flow of $217.34 million into the stock. Of all equities tracked, Lockheed Martin had the 16th highest net in-flow for the day. Lockheed Martin traded down ($0.45) for the day and closed at $310.14

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    When thinking about valuation, most investors start with the price-to-earnings ratio. Raytheon’s P/E is currently around 24, versus a five-year average around 18.5 — suggesting that the company is fairly expensive today. That looks even truer when you compare its P/E to some of its largest peers. The only company with a higher P/E today is Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT).

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Contractors including Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC), General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) have been richly rewarded over the last two years. The current-year Pentagon budget, at $700 billion, is the largest in history and represented a 15.5%, or $94 billion, jump from the year prior. That’s the largest single-year jump since a 26.6% gain in 2002.
