    This newer company came public in September 2016. Noble Midstream Partners L.P. (NYSE: NBLX) primarily provides natural gas gathering, processing and water services in Colorado and Texas.

    Noble Midstream Partners (NYSE:NBLX) burst on the scene in 2017, delivering stellar outperformance in its rookie year as a public company. Driving that surge was the company’s ability to capture several needle-moving opportunities, which positioned it for fast-paced growth for years to come. The master limited partnership (MLP) has continued enhancing its growth prospects this year, which puts it in a position to grow cash flow at an even faster pace.

    Buckeye Partners (NYSE:BPL) currently yields an eye-catching 9%. However, as alluring as that payout might seem, it’s not worth considering right now because of the company’s weaker financial profile. That’s why investors should forget about Buckeye Partners’ high-yielding dividend and instead examine the offerings of fellow energy infrastructure companies EnLink Midstream (NYSE:ENLC), Noble Midstream (NYSE:NBLX), and Tallgrass Energy (NYSE:TGE). Each pays a similarly high-yielding dividend that they back with stronger financials metrics and expect to increase at a healthy rate in 2019 and beyond.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The U.S. markets are preparing for the eighth interest rate hike since 2015, and the Federal Reserve may not be done yet. Markets are weighing the possibility that the Fed may raise rates one more time this year (in December). The hikes come as the Fed is attempting to shrink its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. When Powell speaks this afternoon, expect a few questions about the impact of the trade war between the United States and China. Reporters will also likely want to know about geopolitical risks to the U.S. economy and how they might affect growth in a higher-interest-rate environment. Yesterday, U.S. President Donald Trump gave a speech before the United Nations General Assembly. During his talk, Trump praised the U.S. economy and defended his administration’s actions this year on trade. Trump said that the United States will no longer endure “abuse” from other trade partners. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer also said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to proceed on a new trade deal with Mexico without the participation of Canada. Oil prices are in focus after President Trump called out OPEC members before the U.N. on Tuesday. During his talk, Trump accused OPEC and non-OPEC participants in collusion efforts on production and prices of ripping off the rest of the world.

Delaware isn’t wasting time welcoming sports betting.

Governor John Carney announced that the state would launch a “full-scale sports gaming operation” on Tuesday at its three casinos.

In May, the Supreme Court overturned a federal law that banned sports gambling everywhere except Nevada. That decision lets states decide whether to allow sports betting. Delaware will be the first state to take that step since the Supreme Court’s ruling.

SportsPick, Delaware’s sports gaming product, will go live at 1:30 p.m. ET in the state’s three casinos: Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, Delaware Park and Harrington Raceway & Casino.

Bettors will be able to wager on single games for pro baseball, football, hockey, basketball, soccer, golf and auto racing.

The Delaware Lottery has published an online guide to help users and Carney said he’s hopeful this will bring more visitors to the state.

Lawmakers in New Jersey are attempting to pass a bill by next week that would allow the state to regulate and tax the sports betting industry.

    The only U.S. papers which have been able to buck these trends are The New York Times (NYSE: NYT), the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, each of which produces content that appeals to enough people that they have created large digital subscription bases. At the end of the last reported quarter, The New York Times had over 2.6 million digital-only subscriptions. No other newspaper has a number which is even close.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    In just a few weeks, the largest publicly traded newspaper companies will post their first-quarter results. Other than New York Times Co. (NYSE: NYT), which has had success selling digital subscriptions, last year’s typical results were revenue drops of 5% to 10%.

  • [By Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp, CFP]

    I have to say that whenever I hear a study like this, I’m a bit of a mixed mind. On the one hand, many people are in these situations through no fault of their own. When The New York Times (NYSE: NYT) wrote about this, they talked about a guy who was a carpenter. He became disabled when some equipment fell on him. Then he got Parkinson’s. He wife got cancer. And he was getting health insurance from his union but then they dropped him. Like there’s nothing that guy could have done about that and for someone like him, that’s what bankruptcy is for. Like it’s his last resort.

    Following a surge in the The New York Times’ (NYSE:NYT) stock since the “Trump-bump” effect and an impressive first quarter earlier this year, the newspaper failed to impress last week when it reported its second-quarter results. Suppressed advertising revenue and slowing growth in digital subscribers were reminders of some of the risks to owning shares of the evolving company.

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate.

We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline.

Netflix’s recent price hike isn’t denting its subscriber numbers.

Netflix (NFLX) said Monday it added more than 8 million net subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2017, marking the strongest quarterly subscription gains in its history.

The company credited the “stronger than expected” gains in new customers in part to its “original content slate.” That likely includes “Stranger Things,” Netflix’s breakout show, which returned for a second season during the quarter.

The vast majority of new subscribers continue to come from overseas, as Netflix has expanded into new international markets. Netflix added 2 million users in the U.S. and 6.36 million users abroad.

The company’s stock popped over 8% in after hours trading Monday following the earnings report. If those gains hold, Netflix would open Tuesday at a new all-time high and top a $100 billion market cap for the first time.

Shares of Netflix soared more than 50% in 2017, and have continued to rise in the first weeks of 2018 on optimism about its leading position in the streaming market.

    In this MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova discuss Tesla’s(NASDAQ:TSLA) first quarter — yes, Model 3 production is still lagging — and Elon Musk’s odd behavior on the company’s conference call; Spotify’s(NYSE:SPOT) first post-IPO quarterly report, which was a reminder of how hard it can be in tech to transition into the harsh glare of the public markets; and the future of struggling wearables icon Fitbit(NYSE:FIT).

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    A 20% spike in the fitness wearables niche was particularly good news, considering rival Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) saw its unit volume plunge during the period. Like Fitbit, Garmin has noticed a dramatic shift in consumer demand toward more premium trackers like smartwatches. Yet Garmin’s bigger product line scratched that itch for fitness fans thanks to popular new releases like the Forerunner and Edge franchises. Its lineup allowed fitness sales to rise 20% even as Fitbit’s revenue fell 18%.

    In this segment from the Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova weigh in on the latest numbers and guidance from Fitbit(NYSE:FIT): The wearables leader beat expectations — but still lost money — in the first quarter. And with revenue and device sales down by double-digit percentages, there are real questions about how long its fitness bands can hold consumers’ interest.

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been paying a big price for being late to the smartwatch game. The company missed the shift in consumer preferences and surrendered its lead in the wearables market to a big shark like Apple, which didn’t waste much time in stamping its authority on this still-growing space.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now

Theres reason tothink that President Trump might target uranium imports for tariffs after imposing them on solar equipment back in January and then another announcing another round late last week on steel and aluminum (China has alreadyresponded by announcing planned tariffs on imports of U.S. pork, recycled aluminum, steel pipes, fruit and wine). At first glance, you might think that wouldcause concern forinvestors in small cap mining stocks like Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX-V: AAZ; OTCMKTS: AZURF) which is focused on developing critical clean energy elements (namely lithium, uranium and cobalt plus other critical clean energy elements) mostly in Canada.

However, Trump didquickly declared a temporary exemption from his tariffs for the European Union and other nations like Australia and South Korea as the tariffs are clearly meant to hit China. The NAFTA countries of Canada and Mexico were also exempted; but those exemptions”are not open-ended” and will depend on whether changes are made to NAFTA that will satisfy Trump.

A few weeks ago, we published an article that characterized Gilead (GILD) as a “Value Trap.” That article was a follow-up to an earlier article which used our work on Gilead as an example of how a solid conceptual framework could help investors make better decisions. Both of these articles were based on a 16-page valuation report on Gilead we published to our members in September, 2016.

We caught a lot of flack for the recent characterization of Gilead as a value trap, but our opinion was redeemed on February 7th, when the stock fell heavily after a disappointing earnings announcement.

In today’s article, we’ll take another look at the valuation process – the most important weapon in an investor’s arsenal – in a continuation of the Gilead example. We would invite new readers to read through each of the earlier articles as well, to get a picture of the overall process!

Investing Anecdotes are Dangerous!

What interested us in September 2016, when we made our original analysis of Gilead, was the noise among the value investing community about what a deal Gilead was because the stock was trading at such a low Price-to-Earnings (P/E) ratio (See our article Three Things You Should Know About Gilead).

Best Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Buying beaten down biotech stocks is a strategy I focus on, especially at the end of each year because as tax loss selling fades, it is possible to see very strong gains into the New Year. For example, last December, I wrote an article about Immunogen (IMGN) titled “Why This $1 Biotech Stock Is A Strong Buy Now” and that stock went to over $8.50 per share in 2017. Almost a year ago, I wrote about Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners (CPRX) when it was beaten-down due to a setback, in an article titled “Why This $1 Biotech Stock Is A Strong Buy For 2017” and now it trades for nearly $4 per share. These are the kinds of gains that are possible with biotech stocks. This keeps me looking for undervalued companies in this industry that (even if there are delays or setbacks) still have strong balance sheets and a promising pipeline. With this in mind, I have found a beaten-down biotech stock pick that appears to offer similar upside.

SCYNEXIS, Inc. (SCYX) is a biotechnology company that is focused on developing treatments for serious and life-threatening fungal infections. The lead pipeline candidate, “SCY-078” is an oral and intravenous drug treatment for several fungal infections. This company has an impressive management team, a strong balance sheet, and a promising pipeline thanks to positive results for its lead candidate. Based on the cash this company has on the balance sheet, and the strong results that its lead candidate has produced so far, it appears that this biotech stock is deeply undervalued. The stock has drifted lower in the past couple of weeks (presumably because of some tax-loss selling) but that won’t last much longer and we could even see a short squeeze soon. Let’s take a closer look below.

Top 5 Safest Stocks For 2018

Back in my early 20s, when I was broke and in student-loan and credit-card debt, I started to be able to save a little money. Practically microscopic amounts but it was something.

I was so terrified of losing even those few dollars that I thought I needed to make them as safe as possible. So instead of putting them into vehicles that might actually make me some money, I put my funds into a savings account not even a high-yield savings account and once I started to save slightly more, into the safest mutual fund I could find, an intermediate bond fund.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Own For 2019

The party is over for some of China’s most acquisitive companies.

Three of China’s biggest conglomerates — Dalian Wanda, HNA and Anbang Insurance — have spent billions of dollars on deals around the world. Now the Chinese government is worried that they risk overextending themselves, and they are coming under pressure to sell assets.

The latest reversal came Friday, when Chinese regulators seized control of Anbang and removed its chairman. Analysts say the regulator is likely to offload some of the businesses Anbang snapped up during its global buying spree, such as New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel.

Between them, Wanda, HNA and Anbang spent more than $50 billion in 2016 gobbling up assets around the world, according to research firm Dealogic.

Last year, their spending plummeted by almost 75%. That drop was echoed by a fall in overseas acquisitions by Chinese companies in general.

The Chinese government clamped down on companies borrowing heavily to make aggressive purchases abroad. That’s because officials were worried about the flood of money pouring out of the country and the risks of Chinese companies making irrational or risky investments.

    The analysts upgraded WEN from “Underweight” to “Hold.”

    KeyBanc analyst Christopher O’Cull said, “We are raising our rating for The Wendy’s Company to HOLD as we believe: 1) Wendy’s SRS performance will diverge from the industry for the foreseeable future as new products are supported by more effective use of marketing dollars; 2) better menu and promotional management will lead to improved franchisee profitability (a focus of the new CFO Todd Penegor); and 3) the opportunity to extend the re-franchising program will provide a floor on the stock.”

These adjustments are solely to reflect slightly more conservatism in our cap rate assumptions following the post-election interest rate shifts. We continue to find Apartment Investment & Managements risk/reward profile compelling in this environment as its diversified class B-priced portfolio should prove more resilient to supply pressures and benefit from the growing shortage of affordable workforce housing. In an inflationary environment with potentially declining housing affordability, we are particularly attracted to Aimcos price points, demographics, and balance sheet full of long-dated, non-recourse, fixed rate leverage.

    Apartment Investment & Management reported net income of $67 million on sales of $978 million in 2015.
