    One factor contributing to the awful start to life as a publicly traded company is simply timing. Venator Materials stock listed on public exchanges just in time to catch the last few months of a multiyear bonanza for titanium dioxide stocks.

That helped to soften the blow from their double-digit declines suffered so far in 2018, but the newcomer has no such history to hang its hat on.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

If you’re looking to invest in renewable power stocks, you can always pick out pure plays that take advantage of the huge demand for clean energy —  and with utility customers inking long-term power contracts as they switch from dirty carbon-based fuels, that might be a winning strategy. However, what if the growth story behind renewables doesn’t live up to today’s hype?

That uncertainty is why a diversified company like NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NEE), with utility and renewable power operations, might make more sense for conservative investors.

Focusing on renewables

There’s no question that a company like Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (NYSE:BEP) is a great direct play on renewable power. Roughly 80% of the company’s power is hydroelectric, with the rest made up largely of wind and solar. Moreover, it has exposure to Brazil (20% of generation) and Columbia (15%), in addition to the United States (60%). Much of the company’s growth has come from acquisitions, and long-term contracts back up the bulk of its revenues. It’s a perfectly fine renewable power investment.

    Wall Street showed signs of discord on Thursday, with various major benchmarks moving in opposite directions, reflecting some of the cross-currents among different sectors. After a long advance to record heights for the Nasdaq Composite, tech stocks were generally weaker today, but some high-profile consumer favorites in the Dow Jones Industrial Average powered that benchmark up. Market sentiment appears to be generally solid, but some companies had to deal with specific issues that sent their shares lower. MercadoLibre (NASDAQ:MELI), REV Group (NYSE:REVG), and ArcelorMittal (NYSE:MT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Investors who were left disappointed by Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ:BLDP) last year didn’t have to wait very long for the stock to recover. Shares of the fuel cell manufacturer lost 46% in 2018, but have gained nearly 50% in the first month of 2019. Then again, volatility isn’t anything new for the small-cap stock.

    One of only a few fuel cell technology options for investors, FuelCell Energy focuses on the development of stationary power fuel cell projects for customers ranging from utilities to universities. The company, however, has faced a persistent uphill battle in convincing customers that its solutions represent a viable option to conventional power sources despite support from the government, which came in the form of the investment tax credit. Since 2013, when it reported revenue of $188 million, sales have steadily declined in each year, resulting in a top line of $96 million in 2017. The company’s competitors, on the other hand, have achieved great success in growing sales over the same period of time. Over the past five years, Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) and Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP) have grown revenue at compound annual growth rates of 32% and 22%, respectively.

Hot Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now: CSX Corporation(CSX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Market fears of an escalating Middle Eastern conflict abated thanks to last week’s military strikes against the Syrian government. On Friday, April 13, U.S. forces joined the United Kingdom and France in retaliation for a chemical gas attack carried out by the Syrian government. The military exercise came at a time that tensions are also rising in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
    Today, several members of the U.S. Federal Reserve will be speaking at events around the globe, including San Francisco Fed President John Williams and Chicago Fed Bank President Charles Evans. But no one will be more watched today than Fed Gov. Randal Quarles, who will testify before the U.S. House Financial Services Commission. Quarles will provide testimony on the central bank’s plans to regulate and oversee the financial system. Expect a wealth of questions about the Fed’s plans to raise interest rates and manage its massive balance sheet. Money Morning Liquidity Specialist Lee Adler offers you advice on how to play the Fed’s problems, right here.
    Four Stocks to Watch Today: GS, NFLX, TSLA, and ROKU
    Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) added 0.6% after the Wall Street bank easily topped Q1 earnings and revenue estimates. The firm reported earnings per share (EPS) of $6.95 on top of more than $10 billion in revenue. Analysts projected EPS of $5.67 on top of $8.89 billion. The investment bank hiked its quarterly dividend and said that revenue from equity trading rallied thanks to an uptick in recent market volatility.
    Shares of Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) are flat on the news that the firm will suspend production of its Model 3 vehicles. The firm said the temporary halt in production will aim to “improve automation” and address ongoing bottlenecks in its production process.

    Let’s talk the top news in the marijuana industry today… including four stocks that could surge up to 1,000% during this election year. Here’s what you need to know…

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) is leading a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. Shares are off 0.4% after the firm despite reporting a 40% year-over-year jump in profits and stronger-than-expected revenue. The firm reported earnings per share (EPS) of $5.98 on top of $9.40 billion in revenue. The Wall Street giant was expected to report EPS of $4.67 on top of $8.71 billion in revenue. The investment bank’s first six months of 2018 were its strongest in nine years. The stock slipped after the company announced that president David Solomon will be replacing CEO Lloyd Blankfein when he steps down from his role. Blankfein has been CEO for 12 years. It’s fair to say that Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) went to the dogs on Monday. The company has extended its Prime Day promotion through 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The announcement came after the firm suffered significant outages during the start of the event on Monday afternoon. Rather than get access to deals, many customers were met with pictures of dogs, the firm’s standard error page. Finally, pay close attention to events on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will question leaders of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) about how they store and filter user content. Last year, the Senate and House of Representatives slammed the companies for their roles in and responses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
    Three Stocks to Watch Today: CSX, NFLX, KKR
    CSX Corp. (Nasdaq: CSX) will help lead today’s earnings calendar. Wall Street expects that the company will report EPS of $0.86 on top of $2.98 billion in revenue. Shares of Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) slipped after the firm’s user-growth estimates and quart

    Rail-based freight transportation provider CSX Corporation (NASDAQ:CSX) reports second-quarter 2018 earnings Tuesday after the close of trading. Shares have ascended more than 15% since the company’s successful first-quarter report in mid-April, due in part to management’s focus on leaner operations and improving efficiency. Below, let’s delve into an earnings preview, by way of four items with the potential to either support the current positive trend, or catalyze a bout of profit-taking.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    CSX (NASDAQ:CSX) was upgraded by equities researchers at ValuEngine from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a note issued to investors on Monday.

    It also hasn’t helped that competitor CSX Corporation (NASDAQ:CSX) just reported a massive year-over-year jump of nearly 6 percentage points in its operating ratio, from 69.4% to 63.7%, in the first quarter of 2018. I recently described how a more aggressive approach to operations appears to be fueling CSX’s productivity. And yet it should be acknowledged that CSX isn’t facing a congestion event like Union Pacific’s.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2019

Tim Melvin

Having $100 billion in leftover cash is never a bad thing… unless you happen to be the richest investor in the history of the world.

At last weekend’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A, BRK.B) shareholder meeting – or Warren Buffett cult gathering, as I consider it – the Oracle of Omaha revealed that, even after buying 75 million more shares of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), he still has over $100 billion left in cash.

That’s about 20% of the total value of Berkshire, so it’s a bit of a problem for him.

As he explained to CNBC on Monday, there’s a lot of competition among private equity funds and other financial buyers for companies big enough to move the needle at Berkshire.

That’s not easy to do.

At the same time, neither is buying; prices are just not that attractive right now, and when it comes to spending Berkshire’s money, Buffett is notoriously selective.

    Monday was a generally down day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up early-morning gains to finish modestly lower. Most market participants focused the bulk of their attention on deteriorating financial conditions in Turkey, with signs that the plunge in the value of the nation’s currency could have impacts across the globe. For instance, Argentina had to boost a key interest rate by 5 percentage points to 45% in order to defend its own currency, and in the U.S., financial stocks were generally under some pressure as investors tried to assess possible exposure if the Turkish crisis extends outward. Even with those difficulties, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) quarterly earnings calls break the mold — they’re actually interesting to listen to. The first quarter of 2018 didn’t disappoint as CEO Elon Musk talked about an unwieldy machine on the production line dubbed “fluffer bot,” used words like cockamamie, and created controversy by dismissing Wall Street analysts and turning Q&A over to YouTube channel operator Galileo Russell.

Depending on how many pods we’re talking about (and it could be a lot, to accommodate those 80 million O’Hare passengers), that could mean a sizable revenue boost for Tesla, albeit along with attendant capital investment costs to build the new type of vehicle.

Hot Growth Stocks To Buy Right Now: SPDR S&P MidCap 400 ETF (MDY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Yet when it comes to investing, reward often comes from being willing to take on risk.

When you look at exchange-traded funds tracking indexes composed of companies of different sizes SPDR S&P 500 (NYSEMKT: SPY) for large companies, SPDR S&P Midcap 400 (NYSEMKT: MDY) for midsize companies and SPDR S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSEMKT: SLY) for small companies you can put a number on just how much better smaller stocks have done:

    Yet when it comes to investing, reward often comes from being willing to take on risk. Over the past 10 years, investors who’ve been willing to look at smaller companies have seen much stronger returns than those who’ve stuck with the tried-and-true big names that are more familiar to them. When you look at exchange-traded funds tracking indexes composed of companies of different sizes — SPDR S&P 500 (NYSEMKT:SPY) for large companies, SPDR S&P Midcap 400 (NYSEMKT:MDY) for midsize companies, and SPDR S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSEMKT:SLY) for small companies — you can put a number on just how much better smaller stocks have done:

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

Wednesday November 15: Five things the markets are talking about

Market risk-off continues to dominate capital market moves; both European and Asian stocks have seen ‘red' in their sessions while bonds and gold prices advanced.

The dollar had fallen to its lowest level in nearly three weeks overnight, reflecting the diminishing expectations that Republicans will be able to push through a tax overhaul this year.

Investors attention now turns to data coming out of the U.S this morning – consumer prices and retail sales (08:30 am EDT) should provide clues on the strength of the world's largest economy after the ‘flattest' U.S Treasury yield curve in a decade is raising concern that growth will slow.

1. Stocks see ‘red'

In Japan, the Nikkei share average fell to a new two-week low overnight, with all sectors in negative territory as investors took profits following a two-month rally that pushed the index up by about +20%. The index ended down -1.6%, while the broader Topix closed -2% to seal its longest streak of losses since September 2016.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now: Unilever NV(UN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lisa Levin]

    In trading on Tuesday, industrial shares fell by 0.04 percent. Meanwhile, top losers in the sector included Unilever N.V. (ADR) (NYSE: UN), down 8 percent, and Magal Security Systems Ltd. (USA) (NASDAQ: MAGS), down 6 percent.

  • [By Teresa Rivas]

    Earlier this year, Unilever (UN) recently declined Kraft Heinz (KHC) merger bid. That means that if the company still wants to do a deal, Mondelez International (MDLZ) and PepsiCo (PEP) are the next logical partners, writes Susquehannas Pablo Zuanic.

    Getty Images

    Zuanic upgraded Pepsi from Neutral to Positive today and raised his price target from $118 to $132. He writes that a Pepsi deal would have more strategic merits, hence his upgrade (as he emphasizes that not much has changed in terms of fundamentals for the firm).

    More detail from his note:

    With investors apparently seeing MDLZ as the next likely KHC target, and Coca-Cola (KO) the next Anheuser-Busch (BUD) target, PEP shares have lost visibility and now trade at a 25% discount to KO on apples-to-apples comps. We see value here, on franchise strength, efforts to align the F&B portfolio with consumer health trends, and the growing optionality value of a joint KHC/BUD bid for PEP. We argue that, together, the Kendall Jenner commercial, the Aspartame to-be-or-not-to-be zigzagging, the new, new, new alt low-cal cola (Pepsi Zero sugar), the ongoing underperformance in U.S. CSDs (25% only of the company), the lack of scale in non-CSD NARTDs vs. KO (other than Gatorade), and now talk of PEP buying Brazilian dairy company Vigor S.A. (a JBS subsidiary that would better fit KHC or ULVR), all paint a picture of a company still struggling to set a new direction (with all due respect). In this regard, we think PEP may be more vulnerable than MDLZ to a KHC bid (jointly done with BUD). We also see greater strategic fit for KHC with PEP Food/Snacks (than with MDLZ), and argue that PEP Beverages fits BUD better than KO, as the PEP bottling operations in key regions (including NA) remain in the hands of PEP (KO, on the other hand will be fully refranchised by end of 2017). So we are upgrading PEP to Positive with a $132 price target by December 17. Yes, the Unilever rebuff

    Wednesday was a strong day for the stock market, as the Dow finished up nearly 100 points and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both posted gains as well. Investors remained generally upbeat about the prospects for the U.S. economy in 2017, and a rise in crude oil prices helped lift the energy sector higher during the market session. Yet comments during a press conference from President-elect Donald Trump weighed on the healthcare sector, and some individual stocks took particularly hard hits.
