Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now


In its annual mobile apps survey, Research firm Gartner predicted that by 2019 virtual assistants will account for 20% of all smartphone interactions. With that level of user engagement, predictably all of the largest technology companies are invested in the segment and each brings a different strength to the field.

Many media reports are calling Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Alexa the hit of the Consumer Electronics Show. In 2015, Amazon made a skills kit available to developers that allowed partners to incorporate voice commands. Fast forward to 2017 and Alexa can integrate with an estimated 5,000 third-party apps, from refrigerators to TV’s, from cars to vacuums, and lest we forget, the Echo smart home speaker. The novelty of this device made it among the top selling items on Amazon’s website during the holidays. This was a brilliant strategic move by a company without a smartphone as an installed base. Amazon does, however, have a roster of well-known companies in its corner including Ford, Samsung and LG to name a few. In addition to product integration, Alexa can be found in a dizzying number of bots that can order a pizza from Domino’s, schedule an Uber, or check your Capital One balance. This gives Amazon the early lead in terms of reach and momentum, but the lack of a mobile device means that challenges remain.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    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. Among the worst performers were Perrigo (NYSE:PRGO), Novadaq Technologies (NASDAQ:NVDQ), and Ethan Allen Interiors (NYSE:ETH). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now: GSE Systems, Inc.(GVP)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedbuying small cap performance improvement stock GSE Systems (NYSEMKT: GVP):

    GSE Systems is another somewhat-preemptive position; we think the recent support at the 100-day moving average line (gray) and subsequent string of higher lows is telling. There’s a ceiling at $3.27 that needs to be cleared, but we fear waiting on that to happen because once it does, GVP shares could be catapulted to a price we don’t want to chase.

     Old National Bancorp (ONB) is a 181-year-old financial institution with 195 branches, mainly in the Midwest. The stock, which is still down by about one-third from its prerecession high, trades at just 13 times projected 2016 earnings and yields an attractive 3.4%. If interest rates ever rise, the bank should benefit from a widening spread between its cost of funds and the interest rates borrowers pay.

    It’s a favorite of David Dreman, author of the classic 1980 book Contrarian Investment Strategy. His philosophy: “We believe that the markets are not perfectly efficient.” Some stocks, in other words, are judged by the market to be cheaper than their actual worth.
