    Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2019: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.

Top Canadian Stocks To Buy Right Now

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.

Because Pembina Pipeline has flown under the radar, most investors have missed out on this intriguing income stock. Not only does the company offer a well-above-average dividend yield of 5.1%, but it pays its investors each month instead of just on a quarterly basis. Those are just some of the reasons why investors might want to take a closer look at this underfollowed Canadian pipeline stock.

“After two years of struggle, we’re seeing that rural sentiment has definitely turned positive and farm cash-flow has held up,” Ramesh Iyer, vice chairman and managing director, said in an interview in Mumbai. “On-time, widespread and more-than-average rainfall predicted this year will lead to rural consumers pulling out money and spending it,” he said.

Government policy, including buying farm products at higher-than-market prices along with a bigger budget aimed at boosting the rural economy, is already benefiting Mahindra Financial. The lender, which has a presence in about 330,00 villages, forecasts bad loans will continue to shrink as clients’ financial health strengthens.

Each day, Benzinga takes a look back at a notable market-related moment that occurred on this date.

What Happened?

On this day 20 years ago, 3,400 members of the United Auto Workers union walk out of their jobs at the General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) Flint, Michigan plant.

Where The Market Was

The Dow closed at 9,037.71. The S&P 500 traded at around 1,113.86. Today, the Dow is trading at 24,813.69 and the S&P 500 is trading at 2,746.87.

What Else Was Going On In The World?

In 1998, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled that Quebec could not secede from Canada. The U.S. announced its first budget surplus in 30 years. Federal Reserve interest rates were 8.25 percent.

GM Walkout

In the 1970s and 1980s, the UAW agreed to a number of concessions, including wage cuts, pay freezes and job cuts, to help U.S. automakers like GM survive difficult market conditions. As the market improved in the 1990s, however, the UAW pushed back when it saw GM break its promise to spend $300 million to upgrade its Flint metal-stamping facility.

The workers who walked out of the metal-stamping plant on June 5 were joined by 5,800 workers at the Delphi Technologies PLC (NYSE: DLPH) plant in Flint one week later.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Stocks that pay a growing dividend tend not only to outperform the market but to do so with less volatility. That’s why risk-averse investors should consider stocking their portfolio with companies that have a high probability of paying a growing income stream in the years to come. Three top options worth considering are pipeline giants Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP).

  • [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 Zacks]

    Moreover, TransCanada Corporation (NYSE: TRP)'s $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline – expected to carry heavy crude from Alberta to refineries in the United States – is yet to get a final investment decision. The midstream company had secured 20 years commitment for 500 thousand barrels per day for the pipeline and received Alberta government's support. However, the Nebraska government sanctioned the Mainline Alternative Route for the controversial project, which is longer than the company's preferred route and has forced it to review the alternative route keeping the final decision on hold.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Meanwhile, TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) has been working to revive its Keystone XL pipeline. After years of delay, TransCanada could start full construction next year, which would put the line into service by 2021. However, the hotly contested pipeline could face new delays or even another rejection.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    However, not all energy stocks have enjoyed an up year. Two of those laggards are TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) and Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB), which have both sold-off by double digits. Those declines have pushed their dividend yields above 5%, making them great options for income-focused investors to consider buying.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Kinder Morgan is one of the largest pipeline companies in North America. Its assets span across the United States and reach into Canada and Mexico. There are only a small number of competitors — like Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) and TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP) — that can match the company’s scale. Kinder is in a truly elite group of midstream giants.   

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: ConocoPhillips(COP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    According to a recent report by Reuters, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) has held talks with investment banks about helping the company unload its stake in Cenovus Energy (NYSE:CVE). That sale could net the oil giant more than $2 billion in cash, which would bolster its already sizable cash war chest and give it more money to allocate in creating value for investors.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The number of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) shares short dropped to 17.34 million from the previous level of 18.27 million. Shares were trading at $68.71, within a 52-week range of $42.27 to $71.71.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Oil prices have been on fire over the past year and recently topped $70 a barrel, which is the highest crude has been since late 2014. That rally in the oil market has helped fuel big-time gains in many oil stocks. Three that stand out are Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Hess (NYSE:HES), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) because each has risen more than 20% this year. They might still have additional upside from here given that all three plan on spending billions of dollars to buy back more of their stock.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) is one of a growing number of oil producers that is reevaluating its drilling plans in the Permian Basin because of the region’s looming pipeline shortage. Among the options it’s considering is redeploying at least some of its resources out of the Basin until new pipes start up toward the end of next year. While that could affect its growth prospects in the near term, it also might provide the company with the opportunity to enhance its longer-term growth potential in the region.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In 2019

The big day is now less than four weeks away. On June 7, Canada’s Senate will vote on bill C-45, which is better known as the Cannabis Act. This bill aims to make recreational marijuana legal for purchase by adults 18 years of age and over. If approved by the Senate, the Cannabis Act likely will move swiftly through Canada’s federal government, allowing it to become the first developed country in the world to legalize adult-use pot.

With conservatives in the minority at the moment and a two-year tax-sharing agreement in place with all but one Canadian province, everything appears to be in place for C-45 to soon become law. Recreational sales are expected to commence roughly eight to 12 weeks following approval, meaning sometime in August or September.

Most importantly, the legalization of recreational weed is expected to result in around $5 billion in added annual sales for Canadian growers, processors, distributors, and retailers. This comes on top of what’s already being generated from medical weed sales and exports. The expectation from investors — given the stratospheric valuations most pot stocks currently possess — is that this legalization will lead to big profits for Canadian marijuana stocks.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019

The countdown is underway. In less than four months — Oct. 17, 2018, to be precise — it will officially be legal for adults in Canada to purchase marijuana. In becoming the first developed country in the world to give the green light to recreational weed, Canada has opened the door to an industry that could now see a $5 billion annual windfall of sales.

In anticipation of this long-awaited vote, and, of course, these delectable sales figures, Canadian pot growers have been busy expanding their capacity as quickly as their wallets will allow. Some growers have seen their projected peak production soar by more than 400% just since the year began, all in an effort to secure long-term supply deals, forge emotional attachments with consumers, and lay claim to as much market share as possible when the proverbial green flag waves in mid-October.

    Financial services hasn’t exactly been America’s most popular industry in recent years.

    Banks have traditionally obtained 40% of their profits from “fee income,” which are those charges for using out-of-network ATMs, for maintaining too low of a monthly balance, or for any of the other fine-print fees you never knew you triggered until it’s too late. This is aggravating for retail customers. Consumer lenders are among the most-hated companies in our country, with predatory loans largely responsible for burdening subprime borrowers with excessive debt and for spurring the 2008 economic recession. This makes the public leery of lenders and distrustful of the fine print in the contracts. Even the companies who are considered best-in-class have an unflattering reputation. Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) was once considered one of our nation’s most dependable banks. But their recent sales scandal, which opened millions of unauthorized consumer accounts, may have permanently impaired their reputation. And no one has forgotten how Goldman Sachs’ (NYSE:GS) traders boasted about ripping the faces off of their clients just to generate profits. It prompted Rolling Stone magazine to famously refer to Goldman as a “great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity.”

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The market has pummeled master limited partnerships (MLPs) over the past few years due to the impact the oil market downturn had on their operations and business model. Among the hardest-hit have been oil pipeline MLP Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and gas pipeline giant Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), both of which have lost more than half their value over the last three years. That persistent slump comes even though their turnaround strategies are beginning to gain steam. While these companies still have some work to do before they’re back on solid ground, both could deliver significant returns as they complete their plans and the oil market continues rebounding over the next few years. That upside potential makes them compelling options for investors with a higher tolerance for risk.

    In a new research report, the MLP team at Baird has assimilated the data from the recent Plains All American Pipeline L.P. (NYSE: PAA) analysts day and come to some interesting conclusions. The report noted this:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Another issue affecting Permian producers is dwindling space on pipelines to move crude out of the region. At one point last year, oil companies were pumping 3.3 million BPD out of the Permian but had only about 3.6 million BPD of pipeline space. That bottleneck has eased somewhat in recent months, after Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) raced to finish its Sunrise expansion project, which came online in November. Plains All American is also on track to start partial service of its Cactus II pipeline by the third quarter of this year, with full service expected by next April. Meanwhile, Plains All American recently joined forces with ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) and another midstream company to move forward with a new pipeline project, Wink to Webster, which should start up in the first half of 2021. That pipeline is crucial to support ExxonMobil’s Permian-focused expansion plans.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    TC PIPELINES LP Common Stock (NYSE: TRP) and Rice Midstream Partners (NYSE:RMP) are both oils/energy companies, but which is the superior stock? We will compare the two companies based on the strength of their analyst recommendations, profitability, earnings, dividends, valuation, risk and institutional ownership.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    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.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    North American pipeline companies have three major pipeline projects currently under development: Trans Mountain, Enbridge’s (NYSE:ENB) Line 3 Replacement, and TransCanada’s (NYSE:TRP) Keystone XL. Of that trio, only Line 3 is currently under construction. Enbridge anticipates that the project will enter service in the second half of next year, bringing the pipeline’s capacity back up to its original design of 760,000 barrels of oil per day (BPD), which is double its current rate. The company recently won approval to construct the line through the state of Minnesota along its preferred route and signed an agreement with a Native American group to build it through their reservation. As a result, the company remains on schedule and on budget with the project.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projects last year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    However, not all energy stocks have enjoyed an up year. Two of those laggards are TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) and Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB), which have both sold-off by double digits. Those declines have pushed their dividend yields above 5%, making them great options for income-focused investors to consider buying.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2019

In April last year, Delta Air Lines Co. (NYSE: DAL) placed an order with Canada’s Bombardier for 75 of the company’s CS100 passenger jets and an option on an additional 50. The Canadian firm beat out Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) for the order and Boeing fought back by making a case to the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) that Bombardier’s pricing was “absurdly low” and demanding that the U.S. impose a tariff on the planes.

The ITC sided with Boeing and sent the case on to the U.S. Department of Commerce, which is due to make a decision by Monday, September 25. A decision in Boeing’s favor is expected, but that does not mean that the dispute will end.

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May is under some political pressure to push back on Boeing’s complaint because her coalition government depends on the support of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) and Bombardier is Northern Ireland’s largest private employer. The Canadian firm builds wings for the C Series aircraft in Belfast.

Top 5 Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019: Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.(CMG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    Fast-casual restaurants like Panera Bread and Chipotle (NYSE:CMG) may not be able to deliver your food quite as rapidly, but they’ve been speeding up the process by adding mobile payment and app-based ordering options. And when patronizing such chains, consumers know the trade-off they’re making — spending a bit more time to get higher-end food. It’s a model that has done well by many fast-casual operations in recent years.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Chipotle Mexican Grill’s (NYSE:CMG) new chief executive, Brian Niccol, took the helm of the fast-casual pioneer in early March. While he hinted at some of his plans for the brand on the company’s first-quarter earnings call in late April, Niccol unveiled his complete strategic plan during an analyst call on Wednesday afternoon.

  • [By ]

    Historically, Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) has been slow to roll out new menu items. The Chipotle formula worked so well for so long that there was little reason to tinker. But the food safety crisis of 2015 led to massive sales declines, and the fallout continues to plague the fast-casual chain to this day. With customer traffic slumping more than 3% in the first quarter, Chipotle’s strategy clearly needs to change.

    Matt Frankel: Out of the 18 that were subject to having their capital plans reviewed, 15 got the green light. There were a few that were not doing so well. Deutsche Bank (NYSE:DB), this is their U.S. division, was the only one that had their capital plan outright rejected, meaning that they have to come back and resubmit it within a few months. The two big investment banks — Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) — were conditionally approved. I wrote an article on this, you guys can read it if you’d like to. The big effect of this is that Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley can’t increase their capital spending this year on dividends and buybacks.

Top Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now

Thursday was a blockbuster day for the stock market at large, with major benchmarks soaring to new records. The Dow Jones Industrial Average set its first all-time high since January, rising about 250 points as investors felt more confident about a potential positive resolution to the trade tensions between the U.S. and several key trading partners. Looking more closely at certain sectors of the market, the cannabis industry continued to see a lot of interest, and stocks that have even the appearance of some connection to marijuana generally did well. Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), Corbus Pharmaceuticals Holdings (NASDAQ:CRBP), and New Age Beverages (NASDAQ:NBEV) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Canopy keeps climbing

Shares of Canopy Growth rose 6%, adding to big gains over the past several weeks as investors piled into one of the highest-profile Canadian marijuana producers available to traders on major U.S. exchanges. One key item of news for Canopy today was that shares of its Canopy Rivers venture-capital arm began trading publicly on the TSX Venture Exchange in Canada. CEO Bruce Linton hopes that Canopy Rivers can invest in attractive up-and-coming companies in the marijuana market, unlocking opportunities and working collaboratively with Canopy Growth to facilitate growth. If marijuana stocks keep doing well, then it’ll put Canopy in a strong position to find new players in the space to work with.
