Top Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

America’s role in the global oil market was flipped on its head in 2017. As shale producers cranked out more and more crude, the U.S. relied less and less on some of its traditional sources of oil. At the same time, exports of crude, gasoline and other refined fuels surged higher than ever before.

Shale Surge

The U.S. bypassed Saudi Arabia late last year and is nipping on the heels of Russia to be the world’s biggest oil producer. November output hit a record of 10.057 million barrels a day after the Energy Information Administration revised its data upward. U.S. frackers ramped up production as prices rose toward $60 a barrel late in the year, drawing more drillers to the market.

Two of the most-watched members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries sent less crude to the U.S. — one by choice, and one not so much. Saudi deliveries fell as planned production cuts were implemented to help balance the market and support prices. Venezuela’s hit came amid U.S.-imposed financial sanctions and shrinking production. Meanwhile, imports from Iraq jumped to help keep OPEC steady.

Top Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: Noble Midstream Partners LP (NBLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Two great dividend growth stocks to consider are Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM) and Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX). These two pipeline companies are on pace to double their dividend rates over the next five years. That high-octane dividend growth, when combined with their high yields, could give them the fuel to significantly outpace the market in the coming years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) operates more traditional energy assets such as oil and gas pipelines and related infrastructure. Long-term contracts also underpin Noble Midstream’s assets, providing it with a predictable cash flow stream. That money currently supports the company’s 4.4% yielding distribution.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Headlines about Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) have been trending somewhat positive recently, according to Accern. The research group rates the sentiment of press coverage by analyzing more than 20 million news and blog sources in real-time. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of negative one to positive one, with scores nearest to one being the most favorable. Noble Midstream Partners earned a media sentiment score of 0.20 on Accern’s scale. Accern also gave news headlines about the energy company an impact score of 46.2938671889743 out of 100, indicating that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an effect on the stock’s share price in the immediate future.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) is very early in its growth cycle because it just went public in late 2016. Since that time, the MLP has grown its cash flow at breakneck speed through a series of expansion projects and acquisitions. That allowed Noble Midstream to increase its distribution at a 20% compound annual rate, which has pushed its yield up to nearly 6.4%. Noble Midstream expects to maintain this high-octane dividend growth rate through at least 2022 as it completes its growing backlog of expansion projects, which it recently bolstered through three needle-moving deals. This outlook makes Noble Midstream an ideal option for investors seeking an opportunity to potentially earn some outsized total returns.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The best dividend growth stocks have long histories of increasing their dividends once each year. However, a small handful of companies do even better than that by raising their payouts every single quarter like clockwork. Three such income-growth gems are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP), and Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX).

    On a more positive note, Flannery appears to be making ground on some key long-term objectives.

    Management feels “good” about the ability of the healthcare segment to outperform, according to Miller. Flannery claimed GE was in “active discussions” on some aviation platforms, current & lighting and distributed power, while an announcement on the divestment of transportation (rumored to be a target of Wabtec (NYSE:WAB)) is expected by the end of the second quarter. Structural cost reductions are now expected to be above the $2 billion target outlined on the investor day presentation in November 2017. Flannery outlined that he would lead the creation of a new operating system for GE based on “lean, six sigma ad agile” involving “continuous improvement and customer experience.”

    As a reminder, GE has promised $20 billion of asset sales, and the commentary on the earnings call was reassuring, particularly as the first deal (healthcare IT assets) was underwhelming.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019

Susquehanna’s Pablo Zuanic and team note that Keurig’s business in K-cups has been slowing ever since it was bought by JAB, a problem that could be solved in a very convoluted way by a Mondelez International (MDLZ)-Kraft Heinz (KHC) merger. They explain:

Getty Images

Keurigs plight (actually, JABs) is worsening, with the K-cup market slowing to almost no growth now, and Keurig continuing to lose own brands share. Starbucks (SBUX) echoed the notion of a K-cup market slowdown at its seminar on Wednesday (and is guiding for its [consumer packaged goods, or CPG,] growth below recent trends), but it expects to increase its share of total CPG coffee to 20% from 15%. Come early February it will be a year since the closing of the Keurig deal for JAB Holdings. The pressure on JAB is more significant if we take into account the high leverage of the deal (JAB contributed one fourth of the $12Bn price tag). It is a tough predicament. On the one hand we argue that to make that deal work, they need to buy more (own) brands either from the retail channel (that can be extended to CPG: Dunkin (DNKN)? Panera (PNRA)?), or outright buy CPG brands (like the entire Kraft Heinz portfolio, and or Tata Groups Eight OClock brand). But can/how do they fund these deals? Maybe Mars and Warren Buffett (Mars is involved in office coffee with Starbucks), private equity, and or 3G can help? While this note is not about Positive-rated Mondelez, we have mentioned before a scenario where Kraft Heinz buys Mondelez and partly funds the deal by selling its own CPG coffee business (~$3Bn we say) to JAB as well as divests the Mondelez 20% plus stakes in Keurig (North America) and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (Western Europe), which together at this stage are worth ~$7-8Bn. But, yes, JAB will need deep-pocket partners and generous lenders. Net, JAB needs to do something soon.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

In my very first MannKind article I offered for my SA readers, I made the following statement:

Wall Street gurus are always smarter than the retail investor that doesn’t do their homework.

I have mentioned several times that MannKind’s (NASDAQ:MNKD) management understands the reality and has done a remarkable job in keeping the company hooked up to a life support system that has allowed them to be one of the few (other than the short-sellers) to benefit from these four years of futility for the retail investors. In recent days, with the flurry of superfluous SEC filings and press releases this has only resulted in the stock falling to a near all-time low price. The time is neigh for this saga becoming history so we can close the books on this financial fiasco. It’s now clear who has done their homework on MannKind!

(Editor’s note: There is much greater liquidity on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under ticker Z01).

The Elevator Pitch

Zooplus (OTC:ZOPLY) (OTC:ZLPSF) is the leading online retailer of pet food and supplies in Europe. Generally, in a commoditized market such as selling pet food, the lowest cost provider with the best customer service has the “right to win”. We believe that Zooplus will be this winner, given its structural cost advantage versus its competitors (which we explore below). Additionally, customer satisfaction is extremely high, and we can clearly see customers’ appreciation for the company’s value proposition, as evidenced by the 94% sales retention rate. These unbeatable low prices and high customer satisfaction have led to a 31% annualized sales growth rate since 2010, while still possessing a long runway for continued expansion.

We believe the market is underestimating the long-term earnings power of the firm and consequently significantly undervaluing the company. For instance, the stock is currently trading at 0.9x 2016 sales while comparable acquisitions have taken place at 2-6x multiples. Additionally, we believe at maturity, the business will have normalized operating margins of 8-10%, implying a valuation of ~10x normalized EBIT.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) just achieved a perfect Money Morning stock VQScore, making it a profit powder keg waiting to ignite…

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) is a dividend lovers’ dream stock. The Canadian pipeline giant has increased its payout for 18 straight years, including 10.4% for 2018, and it now yields nearly 5%. There’s still plenty more growth coming down the pipeline given its forecast that the company can increase the payout at an 8% to 10% annual rate through at least 2021. That outlook is among the best in its peer group.

  • [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.

    There has been a slew of merger & acquisition activity in the refining industry as of late as companies look to add economy of scale. The rate of consolidation went into warp speed last week when Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC) and Andeavor (NYSE:ANDV) announced their $23 billion merger deal. HollyFrontier isn’t a big fish in this industry, but it does have a reputation for making value-adding acquisitions. So of course, an analyst asked CEO George Damiris on the company’s conference call for his view of the M&A market and what we might expect from HollyFrontier. Here’s his response:

Hot Medical Stocks For 2019

I read your article about health savings accounts and have a question. I have been fully funding my HSA, paying medical expenses out of pocket and planning to reimburse myself in the future with tax-free HSA dollars. Recently, my employer switched to an HSA provider that only offers a low-interest savings account and no other investing options. Are there other options for investing the money?

See Also: 50 Ways to Cut Your Health Care Costs

You aren’t trapped by your employer’s limited investing options. As long as you have an HSA-eligible health insurance policy (with a deductible of at least $1,300 for individual coverage or $2,600 for family coverage in 2016), you can contribute to an HSA with any account administrator, whether it is offered through your employer or it is an HSA you sign up for on your own. But if your employer only lets you contribute to one administrator’s HSA through payroll deduction, it’s usually best to continue making new contributions to that account, even if it doesn’t have the best long-term investing options.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

General Electric was blasted on Wednesday by workers, retirees and shareholders bemoaning the downfall of the company they love.

At its annual meeting, GE (GE) got an earful from employees and investors who pleaded with management to right the ship after a disastrous year.

“I believe it was arrogance and a series of bad business decisions,” former employee Bill Freeda said. “Our board of directors clearly has been AWOL.”

Another shareholder said: “GE, which was once one of the preeminent companies in the world the bluest of blue chips is now an embarrassment.”

The past 12 months has been one of the darkest periods in GE’s 126-year history. A cash crisis, brought on by years of bad deal-making, forced GE to cut its dividend in half and lay off thousands of workers. GE’s stock price has crashed by 50%, and calls to kick it out of the Dow have grown louder.

Despite the deep criticism of past and current GE leaders, the company’s nominees to the board were all elected on Wednesday. None of the shareholder proposals calling for reform were adopted, though one pushing for splitting the CEO and chairman roles received strong support.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Signet Jewelers (SIG) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after the Washington Post broke the news of a class action arbitration suit against the company alleging discrimination against women at the company.

    Signet Jewelersdropped 13% to $63.59 today, while the S&P 500 declined 0.3% to 2,363.64.

    The Washington Post broke the news last night, which caused Signet’s stock to tumble more than 8% before it was halted. Signet’s stock continued to fall after it released a statement pointing out that the class action didn’t involve sexual harassment, just whether women were paid less than men or passed over for promotions, as if that should make us feel better. Then it concluded by noting that it had “thoroughly investigated the allegations and have concluded they are not substantiated by the facts and certainly do not reflect our culture.” Because self-investigating always works.

    Signet Jewelers’ market capitalization fell to $4.4 billion today from $5.1 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $468 million on sales of $6.6 billion in 2016.
