Hot Performing Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) is a money-losing electric upstart with an exciting business and huge growth prospects. Volkswagen AG (NASDAQOTH:VWAGY) is an entrenched auto industry giant that has been performing relatively well recently. Which is the better buy today? The answer isn’t easy, and as it turns out, both have their challenges.

Problems in electric land

Tesla became public in 2010, and it has yet to turn a full-year profit. That makes sense, given it is still building its business. However, the cash burn at the company has been intense, with free cash flow deeply in negative territory over the last several years as the electric-car maker tries to ramp up its Model 3 production. Tesla has had to rely on capital markets to fund its business, with its long-term debt growing from around $580 million to $9.4 billion over the last five years.

Kinder Morgan’s (NYSE:KMI) Trans Mountain pipeline has been long beleaguered by civilian and municipal government opposition. But last week, the Canadian government stepped in to ensure the pipeline would get made, and offered Kinder Morgan’s subsidiary a tidy $3.5 billion to take the project off their hands.

Find out what Kinder Morgan might do with this cash, who the Canadian government might eventually sell these assets to, and more.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now: Magellan Midstream Partners L.P.(MMP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer, Travis Hoium, and Chuck Saletta]

    Often a high yield is an indication of a stock that’s facing some sort of trouble — but not always. If you take the time, you can find high-yield stocks worth buying if you look in the right places. For example, decidedly low-techLamar Advertising Company (NASDAQ:LAMR), beaten-up midstream playerMagellan Midstream Partners, LP(NYSE:MMP), and renewable power-focused TerraForm Power, Inc. (NASDAQ:TERP) come from vastly different industries. However, each of these high-yield stocks has a solid business and good growth prospects.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) is one of the largest midstream companies in North America, and it has major dividend plans between 2018 and 2020. By the end of that period, it expects to increase its dividend from $0.50 per share per year (in 2017) to $1.25. That’s huge dividend growth in a short period of time. But don’t get too enamored by that news; the dividend will still be lower than it was before the midstream oil and gas company’s 75% dividend cut in 2016. If you’re looking for dividend income in the midstream space, take a look at longtime dividend payers ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) and Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:MMP) instead.

    Crude prices recovered sharply from the profit-taking that we saw ahead of yesterday’s news events, and it is in the Saudis’ best interest to maintain higher market prices as long as the Saudi Aramco deal remains in the future. That said, the U.S. dollar continues to strengthen versus the greenback’s peers, and that could act as a weight upon all commodity prices if that condition were to persist.

    Trade Idea: Magellan Midstream Partners (MMP)

    You’ve heard all about the bottlenecks in domestic distribution. Now, you’ve heard Secretary Mnuchin talk about production. Still, we have to get this stuff to market. When it comes to energy, I have focused on oil services, hence my well-known long positions in both Action Alerts PLUS holding Schlumberger (SLB) , and Halliburton (HAL) .

    Several high-yielding dividend stocks have taken it on the chin this year due to a sell-off in the stock market and rising interest rates. That one-two punch has hit pipeline stocks the hardest, with several top-notch companies tumbling by a double-digit percentage since the start of the year. Three that stand out as excellent options to consider buying now that they’re on sale are Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM), and Enbridge (NYSE:ENB).

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    For an example of just how important this is, take a look at the graph below. Midstream companies ONEOK Inc. (NYSE:OKE), Magellan Midstream Partners LP(NYSE:MMP), and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) have each increased their disbursements for more than a decade. However, there is a difference in the growth rates over time. Enterprise’s 10-year annualized distribution increase was 5.7%, Magellan’s was 10.9%, and ONEOK’s dividend rose at an annualized 16.1% clip. Just a few percentage points here makes a huge difference in the growth of the disbursement over time, as the chart below clearly shows.

    Icahn Enterprises (IEP) : “I don’t really know what they own so I can’t recommend it.”

    Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) : “They don’t have what we’re looking for. I’m going to take a pass for the moment.”

    While not every growth fund manager is worth following there are several that I greatly respect and can be a wonderful source of stock ideas. Here are a few of my favorite growth investors to follow:

    Pat Dorsey of Dorsey Asset Management: Dorsey was the director of equity research at Morningstar for more than a decade an authored two must-read books for growth investors:The Five Rules for Successful Stock InvestingandThe Little Book that Builds Wealth. Dorsey now runs his own asset management business andhe makes concentrated bets in growth stocks that he believes will be able to compound shareholder wealth for years. Chuck Akre of Akre Capital Management: Akre ran the FBR Focus Fund from 1997 to 2009 and produced annualized returns of more than 12% during his tenure, which was far ahead of the 4.4% return of the S&P 500 over the same time frame. Akre launched his own mutual funds in 2009. His style is to buy growth stocks that are trading for value prices and he rarely sells. He also runs a concentrated portfolio. Carl Icahn of Icahn Capital Management: Long-term investors in Icahn’s publicly traded investment vehicle Icahn Enterprises (NASDAQ:IEP) has enjoyed market-beating returns. Icahn’s net worth has ballooned to more than $18 billion because of his knack for finding mispriced stocks. In recent years, he has become an activist investor who buys a meaningful position in a company and then shakes up its Board of Directors and management team in an effort to improve the business. While his fast-paced style isn’t for everybody, I always enjoy looking at his portfolio to see what he has been buying or selling recently.

    There are also a plethora of websites out there that make easy to track and rank what notable growth investors are doing, includingWhale Wisdom, TipRanks, and Guru Focus. Growth investors can visit any of these sites and quickly learn what many big-time money managers have been buying and selling in recent months to come up

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

On Wednesday, the US Department of Commerce announced an investigation into whether the present quantity and circumstances of uranium ore and product imports into the United States threaten to impair national security a move the bodes well for uranium prices and even up-and-coming players like small cap Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF).

The investigation falls under Section 232 of the 1962 Trade Expansion Act and willcanvass the entire uranium sector from the mining industry through enrichment, defense and industrial consumption. This investigation follows a petition filed by two U.S. uranium mining companies(UR-Energy and Energy Fuels) and comes with thefollowing considerations:

Uranium powers 99 U.S. commercial nuclear reactors that produce 20 percent of the electricity for the U.S. electric grid, a key element to U.S. critical infrastructure. Uranium is a required component of our nuclear arsenal and is used to power the Navys nuclear fleet of submarines and aircraft carriers. U.S. uranium production had been 49 percent of U.S. requirements in 1987. Today, U.S. uranium production has dropped to only five percent of U.S. requirements. Three U.S. companies with mining operations have been idled in recent years. Two U.S. petitioners, accounting for over half of all uranium mined in the U.S., have laid off over half their workforce over the last two years and operate at roughly nine percent and 13 percent of capacity respectively. Shuttered mines would take years to reopen under current environmental permitting regulations.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    MPLX (NYSE:MPLX) has undergone a significant transformation over the past year and a half. The master limited partnership (MLP) completed several transactions with its oil refining parent Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC), which diversified its midstream portfolio and eliminated costly management fees. Those moves position MPLX to continue growing its rock-solid 6.8%-yielding payout at a healthy clip for the next several years, making it an excellent option for income-seeking investors to consider buying.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    So in this spirit, I thought I would share with you a stock you may want to consider for your own portfolio because it is one I have recently purchased myself: oil and gas logistics player MPLX LP (NYSE:MPLX). Here’s why I think it is a company worthy of investment and the recent change to the business that compelled me to buy this stock.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The market gave income-seeking investors a gift in June by selling off units of MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), a midstream master limited partnership (MLP).For the month, the pipeline company inexplicably lost about 5% of its value, pushing it down about 4% for the year. Because of that, it trades at an attractive valuation and now yields 7.3%. Those are just some of the factors that make it a compelling income stock to consider buying this month.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Phillips 66(PSX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) reported better-than-expected earnings for its first quarter on Friday.

    The company reported Q1 EPS of $1.04 vs. $0.89 estimates and revenue of 24.05 billion vs. $29.46 billion estimates.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    That said, Delek’s price gain so far in 2018 has left its price to tangible book value ratio well above that of peers like HollyFrontier (NYSE:HFC) and Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). So, it’s fairly easy to give Delek the nod over Calumet, but it’s harder to suggest that it’s the best option in the independent refining space. Investors should probably step back and consider a broader set of options.

The company’s latest filing shows he sold shares in Verisk Analytics, Inc.(NASDAQ:VRSK), IBM (NYSE:IBM), and Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX). Is it time for these stocks to exit your portfolio, too?

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    This strategy of acquiring assets from a large parent company to grow an MLP’s payout has worked well over the years. Refining giant Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX) has been one of the most successful with this strategy since creating Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP) in 2013. At that time, Phillips 66 launched an ambitious plan to grow its MLP’s distribution at a 30% compound annual rate through 2018 via a steady stream of dropdown transactions. Phillips 66 Partners is right on target, having increased the payout at a 31% compound annual growth rate since the IPO while maintaining solid financial metrics, including covering the payout with cash flow by a very comfortable 1.33 times last quarter and maintaining a conservative debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 3.2 in 2017. This strategy has also richly rewarded investors in Phillips 66 Partners, which has generated a total return of 89% since its IPO despite a recent sell-off, easily ahead of the S&P 500’s nearly 73% total return over that time frame.

  • [By ]

    As I write this, shares of Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) are trading for about $111 ($111.66 to be exact). Let’s say you recently bought 100 shares. You could sell a call option on Phillips 66 that expires on August 10 with a strike price of $116 for about $1.30.
