Hot Energy Stocks To Own For 2021

There are two big stories to watch in the stock market right now.

One involves the Federal Reserve…

…and the other involves Lyft, Uber, Pinterest, and other tech companies expected to complete initial public offerings (IPOs) in the near future.

First, let’s look at the Fed, which recently announced some changes in their outlook.

Story #1: The Fed
Just three months ago, their forecast indicated we should expect two more interest rate hikes before the end of 2019. Last week, that changed, and the forecast now is for no additional rate hikes this year.

That indicates the Fed believes the economy will slow, and their forecasts for economic growth confirmed that. GDP is now expected to grow 2.1% this year, a cut of 0.2% from the December forecast.

The Fed also announced changes to its plans for drawing down its balance sheet. During the financial crisis, the Fed’s balance sheet increased from less than $1 trillion to more than $4 trillion. In the past year, they have been selling off assets to bring the balance sheet down to a normal level.

    Last month, Chevron (NYSE: CVX) unveiled plans to acquire Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC) for $33 billion in cash and stock. Anadarko execs signed on the dotted line, agreeing to a $1 billion breakup fee should the deal be scuttled for any reason. That was a mistake, particularly knowing there was another interested suitor.

Although the ride sharing app has 91 million customers and values itself at up to $100 billion, the company has been embroiled in multiple scandals and has struggled to retain those customers in an increasingly competitive environment. Concerns about Uber’s massive valuation has hurt its rival Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT), which went public on March 29. Shares of Lyft are trading just above $61, well below the IPO price of $72. Oil prices are continuing their impressive run, the best in three years. WTI crude is flat this morning at $64.52 per barrel, while Brent crude is sitting at $71.38.

    Another tech company on the list, Automatic Data Processing (Nasdaq: ADP) is, like Intel, priced to perfection. And, similar to Intel, there is more and more competition in its core business of human resources and human capital management solutions — from more-traditional players like Paychex (Nasdaq: PAYX) to small-business focused TriNet (Nasdaq: TNET) to cloud-based Workday (Nasdaq: WDAY). Up nearly 26% year-to-date, consider taking some gains off the table.

    Paychex (Nasdaq: PAYX) handles the payroll for 650,000 clients, mostly small businesses with 10 to 50 employees — the economy’s growth engine.

    These payroll customers generally pay a flat service fee, as well as an additional fee for each worker enrolled. Thus, Paychex likes to see businesses hiring new employees. And after a soft February report, the labor market is roaring once again.

    It starts in 2007 when the Oracle of Omaha began purchasing shares of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP). By the end of 2007, Buffett had spent just over $1 billion.

  • [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.

    Think of the patience that Warren Buffett has. Over his lifetime, the Oracle of Omaha has seen his fair share of market plunges and losses. When Kraft-Heinz (Nasdaq: KHC) tanked in late February, for example, his company, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK), lost about $4.3 billion… in a single day. Yet, Buffett remains steadfast in his investments. He knows that when he purchases a wonderful company, he can hold onto it “forever.” He’s clearly laid out his investment philosophy in his shareholder letters… buy great companies at fair prices and let compounding (and American ingenuity) go to work for you.

    Case in point: Kraft Heinz (Nasdaq: KHC). This consumer-staple company has turned out to be anything but safe and steady.

    You’ve likely heard by now that shares of the world’s fifth-largest food-and-drinks company lost 27% in a single session on Friday, February 22. And Kraft halved its dividend, too. A whopping $15.4 billion write-down of its acquisitions of Kraft and Oscar Mayer was just part of the bad news; the company also disclosed a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation of its procurement accounting practices.
