Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019


Falling prices and a drop in Chinese investment are on track to reduce year-over-year spending on new solar energy projects, according to Bloomberg NEF (BNEF). In the first six months of 2018, solar investment has dropped by 19% compared to the first half of 2017, and BNEF expects the downward trend to gather momentum in the second half of the year.

In the first half of this year, investment in clean energy projects declined just 1% year over year, and in the second quarter investment actually increased by 8%. The uptick was due primarily to a 33% increase in new wind power projects. Of the $138.2 billion invested in the first half of the year, $76.7 billion was devoted to wind projects.


In the first half of the year, China invested $35.1 billion in solar projects, down 29% year over year. BNEF analysts can foresee the first-ever decline in world solar installation for 2018. In 2017, new solar capacity totaled 98 gigawatts (GW), far more than any other technology, renewable or nonrenewable.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2019: Citigroup Inc.(C)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Maxfield]

    Maxfield: I think we mixed up some numbers. Theirrevenue as a percent of assets is4.92%, which is the highest in its peer group, and itspeer group are the really large, too-big-to-fail banks,JPMorgan Chase(NYSE: JPM), Citigroup(NYSE: C), Bank of America(NYSE: BAC), Wells Fargo(NYSE: WFC), plusother large regional banks. So that’s the largestwith one exception, and that isCapital One(NYSE: COF). The reason that Capital One’srevenue is so high as a percentage of assets is because a very largeportion of its loan portfolioconsists of credit card loans, and those yield,as everybody knows, a lot more than, say, a homemortgage does. So its revenue as a percent of assets isthe top in its peer group. But then,if you translate that over intoprofitability,that’s where that 1.1% return on assets is. When you’retalking about profitability for banks, there’stwo measures that you want to look at: yourreturn on assets andyour return on equity. Return on assets is basically yourunlevered profitability. Your return on equity is your leveredprofitability. Here’s the interesting thing about PNC, andthis is one of the reasons that it doesn’t pop up a lot wheninvestors are looking for the top-performing banks — it’s because theirreturn on common equity last year was8.58%. When you’relooking for a 10% return on equity, you think, that’sactually meaningfully below that standard industry benchmark that you want to see. But the reason that it’s below,as we see with its good return on assets,is just because it’s not very levered,which means it’s a very safe bank that’sstill earning a lot of money if you look at it on a levered basis.
