Top 10 Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Apache Corporation(APA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In addition, the company continues to find needle-moving expansion projects, having recently unveiled the development of the Permian Highway Pipeline Project. Kinder Morgan is developing the $2 billion natural gas pipeline with private equity-backed EagleClaw Midstream and Apache Corporation (NYSE:APA). It’s a follow-up to the Gulf Coast Express Pipeline (CGX), which is a $1.75 billion gas pipeline it’s building with two other midstream companies and Apache. Kinder Morgan has already started work on GCX, which should be in service by October 2019, while PHP could follow a year later if the company gives it the green light. These projects will help offset some of the growth it will lose by selling Trans Mountain.

    Since oil prices peaked in 2014, both Total and Shell have managed to generate positive total returns for investors who held through the downturn, in large part because of their diverse operations. Neither has come close to outperforming theS&P 500, but it could have been far worse; one only has to look at some of the biggest independent oil producers, includingApache Corporation(NYSE:APA) (down 53%),Anadarko Petroleum Corporation(NYSE:APC) (down 33%), andContinental Resources, Inc.(NYSE:CLR) (down 12.3%) to appreciate the benefit of Total’s and Shell’s more diversified operations.

    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. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.

    Earlier this year, I highlighted Oasis Midstream Partners (NYSE:OMP) as an intriguing company that income investors should put on their watchlist. On the plus side, theMLP offered an attractive and well-supported payout that it expected to grow at a high rate for the next few years. However, it was a riskier option since its sole source of income is oil-producing parent Oasis Petroleum(NYSE:OAS). Because of that, I thought the company needed to diversify a bit more to become an attractive option for income seekers.

Best Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019

China is currently the world’s biggest emitter of carbon dioxide and has been responsible for half of the world’s coal consumption over the last 20 years. But in China, renewable energy is quickly taking over for fossil fuels.

China’s solar power capacity alone could skyrocket over 700% by 2035.

Investing in China’s renewable energy sector is going to pay off for those who get in early. Right now, we have a way to tap into China’s ambitious solar power surge for profits as high as 33% this year.

Another catalyst for China’s renewable energy industry is the country’s current energy consumption.

Best Energy Stocks To Watch For 2019: Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.- Petrobras(PBR)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Stocks fell on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing modestly lower but with other major benchmarks closing nearly unchanged. Investors largely recovered from an early decline following the White House decision to cancel its scheduled meeting next month with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, instead focusing mostly on economic fundamentals that remain favorable throughout much of the world. Some individual companies, however, had to deal with adversity that sent their shares lower. Petroleo Brasileiro (NYSE:PBR), Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), and Luxoft Holding (NYSE:LXFT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Short interest at Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (NYSE: PBR), or Petrobras, increased to 47.03 million shares from the previous 43.13 million.

Unfortunately, Petrobras may be trading on an entirely different set of fundamentals and sentiment due to its ongoing woes in Brazil.

Top 10 Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019

Oil may return to $100 a barrel, but it would have much less of an impact on the global economy than when prices hit that level in 2011, according to Bloomberg Economics’ simulations. The amount of oil needed to produce a unit of output has been on a steady downward trend for decades and improvements in energy efficiency and a shift in the industrial structure in many advanced economies help explain this downshift. If the general level of prices and energy usage had been the same in 2011 as they are now, $100 oil then would have felt more like $79, BE research shows.

    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.

The 6 Most Inexpensive Growth Stocks To Buy Now

In Warren Buffett’s 1992 letter to Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.B) shareholders, Buffett touches upon a subject at odds with much of the investment industry:

“Most analysts feel they must choose between two approaches customarily thought to be in opposition: ‘value’ and ‘growth.’ Indeed, many investment professionals see any mixing of the two terms as a form of intellectual cross-dressing.

We view that as fuzzy thinking… In our opinion, the two approaches are joined at the hip: Growth is always a component in the calculation of value, constituting a variable whose importance can range from negligible to enormous and whose impact can be negative as well as positive.”

Many investors tend to categorize stocks into value and growth. However, the most successful investors view growth as simply one component of a company’s value as Mr. Buffett explains.

The future outlook for a company is an important aspect when you’re looking at buying a stock. And while value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the current trading price that matters the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price.

Therefore, I used finbox.io’s stock screener to see if I could find high growth stocks trading below their intrinsic value.

The six stocks that stood out from the screen above are presented below.

Top Stocks To Own For 2018

Deutsche Bank’s Paul Trussell writes that Costco Wholesale (COST) is “still head & shoulders above the rest” despite a very tough environment for retailers. He explains why:

Costco’s stock has become a topic of debate in recent months as the post Visa (V) transition period has not yet led to sales lifting back in-line with historical trends. We acknowledge the shortfall vs. expectations but we also highlight the continued outperformance vs. a weakening retail backdrop as Costco consistently produces traffic gains and solid softline & hardline category growth. Food deflation & tobacco exit headwinds likely continue into Spring, but overall compares begin to ease at year-end. Importantly, we see margin tailwinds, steady member growth, strong renewal rates, & fee increases (upcoming in U.S. & recently enact ed International), as downside protection to the P&E.
