Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

As many investors know, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is having a difficult time with its iPhone business right now. A slowdown in China’s economy, last year’s battery-replacement program, and a decrease in carrier subsidies have all made Apple’s large customer base hesitant to upgrade their phones. The slowdown in iPhone sales is currently causing Apple’s overall revenue and operating income to decline, as iPhones account for more than 60% of the company’s revenue.

However, all of Apple’s non-iPhone businesses grew last quarter. One particular bright spot was the services segment. Investors and analysts tend to like service companies much better than device companies, since services are often distributed as subscriptions, producing the consistent recurring revenue that investors love.

While Apple’s services business produces a rather small portion of its revenue today (12.9% last quarter), a growing, high-margin services business is highly attractive to investors. During Apple’s recent earnings call with analysts, management broke out the profitability of the services business for the first time and spent lots of time going through the segment’s impressive statistics. Here are the highlights.

Nevertheless, investors focusing on company-specific news found some reasons to celebrate. Altria Group (NYSE:MO), Galapagos (NASDAQ:GLPG), and Laredo Petroleum (NYSE:LPI) were among the best performers on the day.

    The closing of Sirius XM’s deal for Pandora Media (NYSE:P) — sending arbs off to close out their positions — is probably the biggest reason for the reversal. However, short interest is now even lower than where it was before Sirius XM announced its plan to buy the streaming radio pioneer. Having Pandora now under Sirius XM’s wing is a reason — but not the reason — for more than 100 million net shares covered through the first two weeks of February.

    A possible explanation for the uptick in shorts could be its recently concluded purchase ofPandora (NYSE:P)in an all-stock deal. Arbitragers could’ve bought Pandora and shorted the deal-equivalent number of Sirius XM stocks to lock in the modest discount available to Pandora investors. We’ll find out soon if that was the case. The Pandora dealclosed the day afterSirius XM hit its year-high short position. We’ll get a clearer snapshot of the situation when the exchanges report their mid-month tallies later this month.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

ISTANBUL — Turkey’s central bank vowed to take action after inflation hit its highest pace in 15 years, fueling expectations that it will raise interest rates next week, but analysts questioned how far the institution could defy President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s prescription of lending on the cheap.

Turkish annual consumer-price inflation hit 17.9%, up from July’s reading of 15.9%, as higher transport and energy costs were affected by a sharply weaker Turkish lira, the state statistics agency said Monday.

Minutes later, the central bank said the August reading posed a serious risk to price stability.

"We will take necessary actions," the central bank said in a statement. "Monetary stance will be adjusted," it added, bolstering expectations that it will increase rates when it meets on Sept. 13.

Top 5 Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019: MPLX LP(MPLX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The market gave income-seeking investors a gift in June by selling off units of MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), a midstream master limited partnership (MLP). For the month, the pipeline company inexplicably lost about 5% of its value, pushing it down about 4% for the year. Because of that, it trades at an attractive valuation and now yields 7.3%. Those are just some of the factors that make it a compelling income stock to consider buying this month.

    The U.S. midstream industry is out of favor today despite increasing demand for the infrastructure needed to move and process the growing amounts of oil and natural gas being created by the fracking boom. You can find big yields and big growth opportunities throughout the midstream sector. That said, these three Motley Fool contributors think you might want to focus on MPLX LP (NYSE:MPLX), Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE:EPD), and Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE:KMI) right now, all of which are presenting timely opportunities for long-term investors. Here’s a quick primer on each.

    The best high-yield stocks share three common characteristics: They generate steady cash flow, have a conservative payout ratio, and possess a solid balance sheet. Three companies that comfortably fit that profile are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP). Not only that, but this trio of midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) takes things a step further by having visible growth coming down the pipeline, which makes them excellent income stocks to buy right now.

    The best dividend growth stocks are those that give their investors a raise year in and year out. However, some companies aim even higher by providing their investors with increases every quarter. Two of these dividend dynamos are Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) and MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), which both should have plenty of fuel to continue increasing their payouts each quarter for at least the next few years.

Hot Energy Stocks For 2019

Apple does not agree with the Trump Administration on a number of issues, including tariffs and immigration. Now the iPhone maker is speaking out about the dangers of rolling back environmental protections.

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, gave a speech that covered what the company considers the dangers of the federal government’s environmental policies at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on Thursday.

“Just a few weeks ago, the administration announced that they plan to roll back nationwide clean energy standards. The new plan risks drastically increasing emissions over the next 20 years,” said Jackson.

It was the latest move by the federal government to roll back environmental protections and safeguards enacted under the Obama administration.

The Trump administration thinks the regulatory costs of the rules stifle businesses.

Jackson, who was the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for four years under President Barack Obama, said those policies were already demonstrating real results.
