    Thanks in part to higher oil prices, the average energy stock in the S&P 500 is up nearly 17% over the past year. However, those improving market conditions haven’t taken the entire sector higher. Three laggards that stand out are fast-growing, high-yielding MLPs Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM), Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), and EQT Midstream Partners (NYSE:EQM), which have all lost more than 10% of their value over the past year. Because of that, these MLPs look like compelling options for income-seeking investors to consider.

    Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher.

  • [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 Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now

Many investors rely on their investment portfolios to generate the income they need to make ends meet. For them, dividend stocks are a natural choice, because they offer regular payments of dividend income, as well as the chance to enjoy share-price gains when the company’s underlying business is successful. Especially for those who are retired and living on fixed incomes, the ability to benefit from a combination of stock appreciation and reliable income is huge, and many top dividend stocks also have good track records of boosting their payouts on a regular basis as well, adding to their attractiveness.

Most dividend stocks have one drawback for income investors, though: They tend to make their dividend payments only on a quarterly basis. That’s fine for the company, but it doesn’t always work out well for shareholders who have monthly income needs. A few dividend stocks, however, have figured out that meeting their investors’ needs can be a smart move, and they’ve therefore chosen to make monthly dividend payments. Although income investors naturally prefer the highest dividend yields they can find, the highest-yielding monthly dividend stocks aren’t necessarily the ones with the safest dividends. Shareholders have to seek out top dividend stocks not based solely on yield but also on other features, such as whether they offer dividend reinvestment plans. Later in this article, we’ll reveal five top monthly dividend stocks, but first, let’s take a closer look at why monthly dividends are attractive and what you have to do to avoid potential mistakes in choosing stocks.

    There’s an interesting dichotomy here, however. Crestwood was looking to stay financially disciplined, but it also needed to invest to grow. Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin. These agreements allow Crestwood to keep expanding its business without having to foot the entire bill for the investments.

Three companies with a history of putting more money into their investors’ pockets every three months are Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Western Gas Partners (NYSE:WES), and Valero Energy Partners (NYSE:VLP).

Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton to become president of the United States…and the market took it in stride.

And then some. The S&P 500 climbed 3.8% this week after dipping 0.1% to 2,164.45 today. The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 5.4% this week after advancing 39.78 points, or 0.2%, to 18,847.66 today, a new record high. The Nasdaq Composite gained 3.8% this week after rising 0.5% to 5,237.11 today.

Economist A. Gary Shilling doesn’t think Trump’s victory is “a watershed event.” He explains why:

As for equities, the initial euphoria is no doubt overdone. As Congress grinds through Trump’s proposals, many will likely be considerably watered down. And rising protectionism is already in place, and massive fiscal stimuli were already in the cards. Tax cuts, though not on the scale Trump proposes, seem likely, regardless of unjustifiable hopes that they’ll stimulate enough economic growth to finance themselves. The Fed will probably finance massive fiscal stimuli, but deficits in the annual $1.5 trillion range will probably make Congress cautious, much as they were in the late 2000s.

    Sometimes simply meeting expectations isn’t enough for Wall Street. Foot Locker (NYSE:FL) shareholders experienced this firsthand after the company’s stock dropped despite the retailer announcing a return to sales growth and improving profitability.

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE: SHLX) and Valero Energy Partners (NYSE:VLP) are both mid-cap oils/energy companies, but which is the better stock? We will contrast the two businesses based on the strength of their profitability, valuation, earnings, dividends, risk, analyst recommendations and institutional ownership.

Because of that, these MLPs look like compelling options for income-seeking investors to consider.

Hot Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Four companies completed initial public offerings (IPOs) last week and a total of 10 are on the calendar for this week. If all 10 companies successfully price their IPOs at the midpoint of their expected ranges, the combined capital raise would total $3.1 billion.

Last week’s IPOs raised a combined $2.4 billion, short of an expected total of over $2.8 billion. Here’s the scorecard:

Nine Energy Service Inc. (NYSE: NINE) raised $161 million by selling 7 million shares at $23, the high end of the expected range. Shares got a first-day pop of 13% on the Friday IPO.

Americold Realty Trust (NYSE: COLD) raised $725 million on an upsized offering of 45.3 million shares at $16, the high end of the expected range. Shares got a first-day pop of 11% on the Friday IPO.

One Madison Corp. (NYSE: UMADU) raised $300 million selling 30 million units at $10 per unit. The blank-check company’s units closed the week flat.

ADT Inc. (NYSE: ADT) raised $1.47 billion after pricing a downsized offering of 105 million shares at $14, well below the expected range of $17 to $19. Shares dropped 12% on the Friday IPO.

    Saudi Aramco’s valuation, however, isn’t the only one that would benefit from a pop in the price of crude. Many oil producers in the U.S. restructured their operations to run on $50 oil, so if the Saudi strategy is successful, these oil companies would produce a gusher of cash flow, which could fuel high-octane gains for investors. While that rise would likely lift the entire sector, Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)could outperform in that scenario.

    As expected, EOG Resources’ U.S. oil output came in above the midpoint of its forecast and was up 15% year over year. Fueling that high-end result were the many wells EOG completed across its vast shale portfolio. The company completed 70 wells in the Delaware Basin during the quarter, with several producing more than 2,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/D) in their first month. While the company didn’t match Devon Energy’s (NYSE:DVN) record-smashing 24,000 BOE/D two-well gusher, its wells were highly productive and generated excellent returns.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Oil prices have continued rebounding this year, with the U.S. benchmark price WTI up another 7% to around $65 per barrel. That improving oil price has helped drive up most oil stocks. I say most because Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), Apache (NYSE:APA), and Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) are flat to down so far this year because investors seem to have overlooked them entirely. Because of that, they trade for a dirt-cheap valuation versus their peers, making them intriguing options to consider.

Hot Energy Stocks To Own For 2019: Concho Resources Inc.(CXO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips’ global portfolio is proving to be a big competitive advantage because 70% of its oil production sells at Brent pricing, which is the global oil benchmark. Currently, Brent fetches more than $75 per barrel, while WTI, the U.S. benchmark, sells for $10 less a barrel. In the meantime, due to the lack of adequate pipeline takeaway capacity in the Permian, oil in that region currently sells for less than $60 a barrel, thereby pinching producer profits. That lower oil priceis much less of a concern for ConocoPhillips, according to Bernstein, since it only gets 4% to 5% of its production from the Permian whereas pure-play Permian producers like Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO) only produce from that region. That’s why Bernstein downgraded Concho’s stock from outperform to market perform while slashing its price target from $180 a share all the way down to $130.

Best Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Make way for some waves. CVS Health (CVS) and Express Scripts (ESRX) have released their formulary exclusion list for 2017, which details which prescription drugs will not be covered by health plans.

Why do we care? Commercial payors have been showing signs of pushing back against high drugs costs, which is a huge concern for drug companies and their investors. The coverage list determines whether millions of privately insured individuals can easily use an insurance co-payment to buy their prescriptions. If a drug is excluded, it can dramatically hobble sales.

Thus, the formulary exclusion lists can be used as a tool by insurers and PBMs leverage you might say to negotiate with drug makers for better prices. Its also a double edged sword that can cost a PBM customers.

Express Scripts says it will save customers $1.8 billion in 2017 by excluding a list of 85 drugs from its formulary in 2017. It added a handful of new names to the list, including Bristol-Myers Squibb‘s (BMY) arthritis medication Orencia, Eli Lilly‘s (LLY) new psoriasis medication and Valeants (VRX) Zyclara, an actinic keratosis skin cream, while also removing several names, including Pfizer‘s (PFE) arthritis drugs Xeljanz (it is now a preferred alternative follow price negotiations with Express Scripts).

Top Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2018

Higher European natural gas prices are here to stay.

At least that’s what traders were saying this week in Amsterdam at the Flame conference, the region’s biggest annual gas gathering. Rising prices for energy commodities led by oil and the need to refill depleted storage sites after the coldest winter since 2012 will see European gas consolidate its rare rally during the summer, when lower heating demand usually damps prices.

#lazy-img-327845367:before{padding-top:56.25%;}

The increase is reversing trends seen just a few years ago, when a looming oversupply of the fuel, warmer winters and sluggish demand in power generation made it look like gas was only going to get cheaper and cheaper. While the role of crude in pricing European gas has diminished, it continues to be a key driver, according to RWE AG.

Doing both at the same time is difficult, which is why it partnered up with Con Ed in the Marcellus region, Shell Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:SHLX) and First Reserve in the Delaware Basin, and Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) in the Powder River basin.

Best Energy Stocks To Own For 2019

Bitcoin prices moved slightly lower in Thursday trading as the No. 1 cryptocurrency by market value remained trapped below the $9,000 threshold. Prices had rallied as high as $9,745 a day earlier.

Here are the stories you can’t miss in cryptocurrency for Thursday, April 26.

17 Millionth Coin Mined

On Thursday morning, the 17 millionth bitcoin was mined. It was the first time the No. 1 cryptocurrency reached a million-coin mark since mid-2016, when the 16 millionth bitcoin was mined. Due to bitcoin’s current rules and blockchain setup, there are only 21 million bitcoins that can ever be created. Finite supply, capped at the 21 million level, was a central tenet to bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto’s thesis. Mining bitcoin is an extremely energy-consuming process, and only about 1,800 bitcoins are mined on an average trading day. Because bitcoins are mined in blocks – with about 12.5 bitcoins per block – it’s unlikely the crypto world will know exactly who mined the 17 millionth bitcoin. With Thursday’s 17 millionth bitcoin, about 81% of all bitcoin supply will be accounted for.

    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. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors.

Not only has the company paid out a dividend for more than 100 uninterrupted years, it has also grown that dividend in most years. GE’s current yield of 3% is considerably higher than the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDX:INDU) average yield of 2.76%.

Anything that would threaten that dividend is, therefore, likely to reflect badly on GE stock. Power and Water are GE’s largest revenue segments, contributing roughly 25% to the company’s top line. And right now, one of GE’s major business threats could be changes that are likely to affectthe energy sector under Trump. Investors fear that sale of power plant upgrades by companies like GE might suffer if the U.S. bails out of climate change treaties under the Trump administration. The view is that Trump will be awful for clean energy and the climate change fight since he has promised to rip apart environment regulations, including the Paris Climate Agreement, and said that he thinks climate change is a hoax created by the Beijing government.

We’ll show you our top two strategies for finding good penny stocks to buy, plus our small-cap stock pick primed for double-digit growth this year…

That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

Best Value Stocks To Invest In 2018

How good are you at reading moods? the answer could be the key to a healthy portfolio over the next couple of years. Consider the following quote from the late Sir John Templeton, a renowned investor with an eye for stock market value: Bull markets are born on pessimism, grow on skepticism, mature on optimism and die on euphoria. The most important tasks for investors in 2018 will be to figure out where we are on that timeline and position their portfolios accordingly.
