Top Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now

President Trump threatened repeatedly to kill NAFTA. He called it “the worst deal maybe ever signed.”

But America’s free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico may just survive.

Hopes are rising that NAFTA negotiators are compromising on tough issues and that Trump’s threat to tear it up is a thing of the past.

“If there’s a real effort made to try to close out and to compromise and do some of the things we all know we should do, I’m optimistic we can get something done in principle in the next little bit,” US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, the top American negotiator, told CNBC on Wednesday. “I think we are making progress.”

That optimism is relatively new. NAFTA talks began last August, and by November, Lighthizer was criticizing negotiators from Canada and Mexico to their faces and in public for failing to compromise, in his view.

Canadian and Mexican officials called the Trump administration’s demands unacceptable. And Trump himself kept threatening to tear up the deal, which he has the power to do without Congress.

Top Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Exxon’s most recent partnership is with oil pipeline giant Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA). The companies announced this week that they’re pursuing the creation of a joint venture that wouldbuild a more than 1 million BPD oil pipeline from the Permian to the Gulf Coast. That project would add to the more than $2.4 billion Plains All American plans to invest in building out Permian infrastructure over the next few years to serve the growing needs of producers in the region, which are on pace to boost oil production from 3.5 million BPD this year up to an estimated 6.4 million BPD by 2023.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The growth opportunities could be significant. Large-scale midstream companies Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) and Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA) currently have billions of dollars of Permian growth projects under way that will significantly increase their cash flow in the coming years. Targa Resources recently secured contracts supporting $500 million of gas gathering and processing investments in the region, which boosted its total backlog of Permian projects to $2.4 billion, or 75% of its total planned spending over the next two years. Those expansions position it to nearly double its earnings by 2021. Plains All American Pipelines, meanwhile, is investing more than 80% of its roughly $2 billion capital budget on the Permian over the next two years, and it could end up spending even more money to meet the demand for oil gathering capacity. Those expansions help position it to grow cash flow at a double-digit annual pace over the next two years. Given Oasis Midstream’s much smaller size, it has the potential to capture needle-moving growth by expanding into the Permian.

In addition, Powell must manage a $4.5 trillion balance sheet that the Fed built up in the wake of last decade’s financial crisis.

Top 10 Casino Stocks For 2019

Michael E. Lewitt

Back in April, I recommendedCaesars Entertainment Corp.(Nasdaq: CZR) as a buy – but warned you that this was a play that might take some time to mature.

If you haven’t gotten in already, you’ll want to do it soon.

After months of bitter wrangling, the much-beleaguered Caesars has finally reached a $5 billion deal with the private-equity sponsors that looted the company,Apollo Global Management, LLC(NYSE: APO) andTPG Capital(formerly Texas Pacific Group). Pending approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Chicago, CZR is now set to leave bankruptcy, get rid of its debt, and get back on its feet.

Of course, this means very good news for stockholders (like you, I hope).

Here’s why you can expect to start seeing profits…

CZR’s Bonds Are Recovering – and Its Stock Will, Too

The sad chapter of Caesars Entertainment’s ownership by these two private-equity firms appears to be mercifully coming to an end.The firms agreed to increase their offer to repay the creditors some (but not all) of the billions of dollars they looted from the company in a desperate and disgusting effort to save their ill-fated investment in the casino giant. While they will retain an equity interest in the company, a majority of the stock will be held by the creditors who suffered at their hands.

    Thursday was a poor day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up about 0.5%-1% across the board. Trade concerns remain the focal point for market participants, with the latest controversy over U.S. immigration policy posing a potential threat to relations with traditional American allies abroad as well. Even with worries on a big-picture level, some individual companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Stitch Fix (NASDAQ:SFIX), Barnes & Noble Education (NYSE:BNED), and Heron Therapeutics (NASDAQ:HRTX) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    As things stand now, Cara’s immediate future hinges directly on the strength of Korsuva’s late-stage results in both postoperative pain and CKD-associated pruritus. Having said that, I think investors should largely consider the drug’s postoperative pain indication as icing on the cake at this point. Heron Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ:HRTX)experimental pain medicine HTX-011, after all, appears to have a sizable advantage in terms of efficacy over Korsuva based on the trial data so far. And Heron is almost certainly going to beat Cara to market by several years as well, giving it a formidable first-mover advantage.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Sirius XM
    The more than 206.74 million Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) shares that were short after the last two weeks of this month amounted to just 0.1% or so more than on the previous settlement date. This was the third-lowest level of short interest in the past year, and it totaled 15.8% of the available float. The average daily volume has shrunk in seven of the past eight periods, and the number of days to cover inched up to nearly 13. Sirius’ stock price was $7.22 at the trading day’s close yesterday. Its 52-week low is $5.09 and the 52-week high is $7.33, a multiyear high posted this week.

    Remember, Apple (AAPL) had run because its service-revenue stream made the tech giant part of an elite group of companies. It joined Costco (COST) , Netflix (NFLX) , and SiriusXM (SIRI) , Spotify (SPOT) and Amazon (AMZN) (home of Amazon Prime) as companies that charge you recurring fees that you don’t seem to notice or care about. So, Apple’s stock no longer represents the tug to the group, and each company has to develop a separate power base away from Cupertino.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Watch For 2019

If there was any doubt that Namaste Technologies (OTCMKTS:NXTTF, CNSX:N) is on the right track and can do what it set out to do, it was just wiped away today. Per this morning’s press release, the company proved it’s going to be able to reach its near-term revenue target by tweaking its recently-acquired properties. Investors who’ve been kicking the tires with NXTTF — or with N, for Canadian investors — the time to act is arguably sooner than later.

Namaste Technologies sells electronic vaporizers, which are more commonly categorized as electronic cigarettes (or e-cigs). Though initially intended as a means of avoiding tobacco smoke without giving up nicotine, it was only a matter of time before the idea was adapted and new technologies were developed to vaporize whatever it is people choose to smoke. Marijuana was an obvious good-fit candidate for the idea, and Namaste Technologies is simply capitalizing on that growing opportunity. The end result: Namaste now operates more than 30 e-commerce retail stores with monthly traffic of over 550,000 visitors…

… or did anyway. As of this morning, In terms of total traffic, Namaste has increased its total pre-acquisition monthly traffic from 42,353 in July to 596,453 in November, an overall increase of 1,308.3% in monthly traffic. That’s a pretty big leap forward in not a lot of time, which is part of what makes the Namaste Technologies opportunity so compelling.

It takes a closer look at the numbers and a clear understanding of what Namaste bought and when it bought it to fully appreciate how big of a deal the news is.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Watch For 2019: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc(VRX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    The market has pummeled master limited partnerships (MLPs) over the past few years due to the impact the oil market downturn had on their operations and business model. Among the hardest-hit have been oil pipeline MLP Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and gas pipeline giant Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), both of which have lost more than half their value over the last three years. That persistent slump comes even though their turnaround strategies are beginning to gain steam. While these companies still have some work to do before they’re back on solid ground, both could deliver significant returns as they complete their plans and the oil market continues rebounding over the next few years. That upside potential makes them compelling options for investors with a higher tolerance for risk.

    There’s just one problem with all that production: It needs to get out of the basin, which is a problem right now sincethere aren’t enough pipelines.

Top Penny Stocks To Buy For 2019

Novavax (NVAX) has experienced many ups and downs in recent years. This has largely been the product of exuberance about its adult RSV vaccine trial, which ended in failure and sent shares into penny stock territory. Since then, the company has been rebuilding with a focus on its second shot at a blockbuster RSV vaccine, this time in a Phase 3 maternal vaccine study. The market has also become enamored of a candidate deeper in the pipeline, NanoFlu, which has shown superior immunogenicity to currently available flu vaccines in both animal models and preliminary human testing. These prospects have helped to buoy Novavax of late, with shares holding steady even after a stock offering announced on April 11th.

On May 9th, Novavax reported earnings for Q1 2018. The financial results held little in the way of surprises, with revenue beating analyst estimates slightly and earnings missing by a cent a share. The immediate market reaction was slightly negative, with shares falling 1.8% in the wake of the announcement, but that is a rather minor movement for a stock that still trades under $2 per share. Closing at $1.69 May 22nd, shares are down just over 1% from the day earnings were announced.
