Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, “machinery”, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

    Much of the focus of cannabis investors has been centered on Canada and California. This makes sense given that they are the two largest recreational (or soon to be) cannabis markets in the world. However, one publicly traded company with US-centric cannabis operations has taken a different approach. iAnthus Capital is listed in Canada on the CSE (OTCQB:ITHUF), but is headquartered in New York and incorporated in Delaware. Unlike other Canadian-listed cannabis companies, most of which are aiming to get in on the highly competitive green-rush in California and Canada, iAnthus has set its sights on becoming the dominant player on the U.S. East Coast.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

In your 60s, your investment goals are likely to shift from capital accumulation to a mixture that includes more of a focus on safety and income. As you look to start living off of your nest egg, large U.S. utility Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK) and consumer product giant The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) can help you make the transition to a new way of thinking about your portfolio. Here’s what you need to know about this pair of high-yielding stocks.

Boring but steady

There’s no way around it — Duke Energy is a pretty boring company. Its core business is a collection of regulated utilities that sell electricity and natural gas to a combined 9.2 million customers. In addition, the company owns midstream natural gas pipelines and a renewable-energy merchant power business. Electric utilities are the core of Duke’s operation, providing 88% of its earnings, with gas utilities and pipelines chipping in 9% and the rest coming from its merchant operations.

    And yet, a funny thing has been happening in the market for oil stocks over this past week. All of a sudden, Wall Street analysts are talking up free cash flow as a reason to buy oil stocks. In fact, they can’t seem to shut up about it. Over just the past few days, I’ve seen free cash flow mentioned prominently in the analyses of Wall Street bankers on no fewer than three separate oil stocks: ExxonMobil, Chevron (NYSE:CVX), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP).

    Pontoon boats are a versatile vessel as they can be used for fishing, sports, cruising, and day trips. That latter part is key because rival boatmaker Brunswick (NYSE:BC) — which Polaris used to have a business relationship with when it was in the marine market — says that overnight trips with boats are fading. Industry site Boat Industry quotes Brunswick’s freshwater boat group President Jeff Kinsey as saying, “There’s been a clear shift toward day boating, and that speaks directly to the pontoon with its seating capacity, its open space, its amenities and its comfort.”

    While Conoco’s plans are said be well above that of Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) and Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), ConocoPhillips is still thought of as having a positive strategy and an even better execution of that strategy. The call even talks about solid cash flow generation and underappreciated assets. All that said, there appears to be better relative upside elsewhere in the energy sector. For a reference, Chevron was last seen down less than 1% so far in 2018, if the dividend is included, and Exxon shares have been up just about 2.5% so far in 2018, again if you include dividends.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Enbridge Inc(ENB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Shares of Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) came roaring back in January. After tumbling 20% in 2018 due in part to a late sell-off in the oil market, shares of the Canadian oil pipeline giant rebounded 17.8% last month, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Driving that rally was a bounce back in the oil market as well as some bullish notes by analysts who follow the company.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Pembina Pipeline Corp. (NYSE:PBA) isn’t a name that most investors are probably familiar with since it’s a Canadian company. Not only that, but it’s much smaller than its more well-known national rivals Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which have made their share of headlines in the U.S. due to some controversial pipeline projects.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    While hiring a bank to lead the sales process doesn’t mean Kinder Morgan will find buyers willing to pay its asking price, the report suggested that “interest in the assets would be robust, and bids are likely to come from both midstream companies, private equity firms, and infrastructure funds.” Recent M&A activity in the country backs up that view. For example, in April, Canadian energy infrastructure giant Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) hired advisors to explore the sale of some of its natural gas gathering and processing assets in the western part of the country. That initial report said that Enbridge hoped to sell at least a portion of that business for more than CA$2 billion ($1.5 billion). By July, Enbridge agreed to a CA$4.3 billion ($3.3 billion) bid by an infrastructure fund-led consortium for its entire gas gathering and processing business in Western Canada. It was only one of several notable deals for midstream assets in recent years, in what has been a seller’s market.   

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    In addition to the Trans Mountain system, two other pipeline projects currently are proposed to move crude oil from Alberta either to the Great Lakes or the Gulf Coast. Enbridge Inc. (NYSE: ENB) is proposing to replace its 50-year old Line 3 system to transport 760,000 barrels a day to Superior, Wisconsin. TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) has received approval from the Trump administration and would transport 830,000 barrels a day to Nebraska where existing pipelines will take over, sending the crude to U.S. refineries and Gulf Coast terminals.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In addition to that, Brookfield has agreed to buy Enbridge’s (NYSE:ENB) Western Canadian natural gas gathering and processing business. The company will invest about $540 million in the acquisition, giving it a stake in the largest operation of its kind in Canada, which has it strategically positioned for expansion. Meanwhile, Enbridge will use the cash to pay down debt and fund its large slate of expansion projects.

    Oil prices have improved dramatically over the past year as OPEC’s move to drain off the supply glut proved more successful than envisioned. That rising tide has lifted most oil stocks. However, that doesn’t mean investors have missed the boat, since many oil stocks still have ample upside. Two top ones where that’s the case are Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Enbridge (NYSE:ENB).

The Dow Jones Industrial Average posted triple-digit gains to finish at a record, but weakness from the technology sector weighed on the Nasdaq Composite. Investors seem to believe that the resolution of some key trade disputes favors large multinationals over small domestic companies, and some foreign stocks also had good showings. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Lamb Weston Holdings (NYSE:LW), and IAMGOLD (NYSE:IAG) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Short interest at Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (NYSE: PBR), or Petrobras, decreased to 42.60 million shares from the previous 43.43 million. The stock traded at $10.52 a share, in a 52-week range of $9.02 to $17.20. Unfortunately, Petrobras may be trading on an entirely different set of fundamentals and sentiment due to its ongoing woes in Brazil.

    Stocks fell on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing modestly lower but with other major benchmarks closing nearly unchanged. Investors largely recovered from an early decline following the White House decision to cancel its scheduled meeting next month with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, instead focusing mostly on economic fundamentals that remain favorable throughout much of the world. Some individual companies, however, had to deal with adversity that sent their shares lower. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), and Luxoft Holding (NYSE:LXFT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Saturday, July 1, marked the first day of recreational marijuana sales in the state of Nevada, and by any measure, it was a huge success. An estimate by the Nevada Dispensary Association puts first-weekend sales of recreational pot at between $3 and $5 million.

Lines were long, with some customers waiting up to an hour to make their purchases. Among the buyers was state Senator Tick Segerblom, an early supporter of legal recreational use in the state, who made the first purchase at The+Source dispensary. The senator bought a pre-rolled joint of strain named for him, Segerblom Haze.

Nevada is the fifth state to launch legal sales of marijuana for recreational use and is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska in adding to the state’s coffers with tax revenue generated by the sales. Given the tourist traffic the state already generates thanks to its casino gambling, both the industry and the state are expecting big things. Only California’s potential receipts from legal recreational sales (scheduled to begin next year) are expected to exceed Nevada’s.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Crude oil is hotter this year than the Dow, the Nasdaq and even bitcoin.

It has surged 7% so far in 2018 and hit a three-year high of $64.81 a barrel on Monday, reflecting confidence that an epic supply glut may finally be over because of production cuts by OPEC and Russia.

“The market has gone really high, really fast,” said Michael Tran, energy strategist at RBC Capital Markets. “The oil market has reached the healthiest state in several years.”

But is the infamously boom-and-bust oil industry setting itself up for disappointment? Crude is so high that it could trigger a “drill, baby, drill” mentality from U.S. shale oil producers who will once again flood the market with supply and drive down prices.

That’s exactly what happened in early 2017, derailing a rally in crude and setting up months of pain.

U.S. shale producers need oil to be expensive enough to give them incentive to pump, and prices have once again reached that sweet spot.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The tax bill passed by the House and Senate still hasn’t been signed by President Trump. But one blue chip company, FedEx, is already touting the potential for a nearly $1.5 billion increase in annual profits due to lower corporate taxes.

FedEx reported its latest quarterly results after the closing bell Tuesday, before the Senate voted to approve the bill.

But the shipping giant told investors in its earnings release that its annual profits for fiscal 2018 could increase by $4.40 to $5.50 a share, mainly due to a change in how it values deferred tax liabilities as well as the cut in the corporate tax rate to 21%.

The lower tax rate on its own will lead earnings to be as much as $1 share higher, FedEx said.

FedEx has about 268.2 million total shares outstanding. So a possible $5.50 per share boost from lower taxes would translate to a $1.48 billion bump in annual earnings. Shares of FedEx (FDX) rose more than 3% on the news, hitting an all-time high.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch For 2018

Last week, Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) released its latest long-term forecast for the electric vehicle (EV) marketplace. The analysts are forecasting that sales of light-duty vehicles (passenger cars, pickups, and SUV/crossovers) will rise from around 1% in 2016 to 54% of all vehicle sales by 2040. By that time, one-third of the entire global fleet will be electrified.

BNEF attributes the projected soaring growth to rapidly falling battery costs and increased commitments from carmakers like Volvo, which also announced last week that by 2019 all its new cars would include some type of electrification. The analysts expect sales of EVs to remain relatively low until 2025 and then reach an inflection point between 2025 and 2030 as EVs “become economical on an unsubsidized total cost of ownership basis across mass-market vehicle classes.”

The cost of lithium-ion cells has dropped by 73% since 2010 according to BNEF analyst Colin McKerracher. To keep up with global demand, a total of 35 plants equal in size to Tesla Inc.’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) Gigafactory are going to be required over the next 13 years.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018: Statoil ASA(STO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jayson Derrick]

    BP plc (ADR) (NYSE: BP), Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE: RDS-A) (NYSE: RDS-B) and Statoil ASA(ADR) (NYSE: STO) are expected to outperform their peers by offering: 1) the greatest rate of change in cost reduction through technology and innovation, 2) upstream portfolios with an attractive risk to reward profile and 3) sufficient liquidity to invest in future growth.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Should oil prices recover, we believe that deepwater drilling activity growth should lag growth in US shale activity, as project economics is generally better in US shales, and E&Ps involved in US shales are generally quicker to react. Deepwater activity is largely comprises a handful of companies (Petrobras (PBR), Statoil (STO), Total (TOT), Shell (RDS.A), BP (BP), ONGC, ExxonMobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX)) and it is unlikely that these companies can meaningfully increase their rig demand in a short period of time to absorb the current oversupply. Thus, should oil prices rise in 2018, rig demand may increase, but likely not enough to tighten the market, given that supply equaling 43% of current working rig count is stacked and new supply equaling 25% of working rig count is under-construction and should be entering the market in the coming years. As a result, while we expect some improvement in rig utilization owing to rig retirements, it will unlikely be strong enough to meaningfully improve rates in 2018 above spot levels. Any demand increase in the interim could slow rig retirements materially, and be self-defeating. We thus are Sell rated on Transocean, Atwood and Noble.
