My Top 5 Long Stocks | Seeking Alpha

My Top 5 Long Stocks | Seeking Alpha



Here is an outstanding article about 5 good stocks.  I especially like TransCanada, and I plan to buy TRP as soon as possible.  Other excellent picks are AQUNF and CWCO.  I will probably buy these latter stocks after I have bought TRP.  I believe these companies will be worthwhile to own in a stock market that has mostly topped out in many other stocks.

This Tiny Silver Miner Can Explode - Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd (NYSEMKT:ASM) | Seeking Alpha

This Tiny Silver Miner Can Explode - Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd (NYSEMKT:ASM) | Seeking Alpha



This is an excellent article about a promising, cost effective silver and gold miner.  As you probably know, cellphone makers use silver and gold in their phones, and this low cost miner has a contract with Samsung for the next two years.  Moreover, the bottom is probably in for gold and silver prices.  I will most likely buy shares of ASM in the near future.

This CEF Provides Exposure To The Best High-Tech Names With 7.7% Yield - Nuveen Nasdaq 100 Dynamic Overwrite Fund (NASDAQ:QQQX) | Seeking Alpha

This CEF Provides Exposure To The Best High-Tech Names With 7.7% Yield - Nuveen Nasdaq 100 Dynamic Overwrite Fund (NASDAQ:QQQX) | Seeking Alpha



This is a very good article about a closed end fund which includes the growth of the Nasdaq along with a great dividend due to covered call writing.  The stock has beaten the S&P 500 in the past 5 and 10 year periods in total return.  The 7% quarterly dividend that is supported through call options can be a good return in a flat and volatile stock market.  I try to maintain around 50% of my portfolio in dividend paying stocks and bonds, and I will consider adding QQQX to my portfolio in the future.

TransCanada - A Long-Term Growth Opportunity - TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP) | Seeking Alpha

TransCanada - A Long-Term Growth Opportunity - TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP) | Seeking Alpha



Here is an excellent article on TransCanada.  The company is growing its infrastructure as well as its stock price.  It is a very significant pipeline company for oil and natural gas, and the long-term prospects are great.  TRP has a good 4% quarterly dividend in addition to a capital gain or more than 50% from the 52-week low.  Because of the company's vast natural gas pipeline structure in the U.S., TRP will certainly gain as we burn less coal and switch to more natural gas.  I am planning to buy TransCanada very soon.



The Biggest Uranium ETF Is Up By 25%, While Uranium Price Collapses. How Is It Possible? - Global X Uranium ETF (NYSEARCA:URA) | Seeking Alpha

The Biggest Uranium ETF Is Up By 25%, While Uranium Price Collapses. How Is It Possible? - Global X Uranium ETF (NYSEARCA:URA) | Seeking Alpha



This is an outstanding article on the state of the uranium industry.  Everyone is aware that we will be using more uranium in the future, but we currently have a glut of uranium supply just like the situation with oil.  The article talks about falling uranium prices while a pickup in demand is supposed to be just around the corner.  The uranium ETF, URA, has risen 11% in the past month, and Nexgen Energy is up 59%.  I bought NXGEF today because I think it can go higher.  So, uranium stocks might be profitable in the long term if you are willing to ride out some volatility.

Broadwind Energy's (BWEN) CEO Stephanie Kushner on Q1 2016 Results - Earnings Call Transcript | Seeking Alpha

Broadwind Energy's (BWEN) CEO Stephanie Kushner on Q1 2016 Results - Earnings Call Transcript | Seeking Alpha



Here is a great article on the quarterly results of Broadwind.  I bought shares in the company today as soon as I saw the quarterly report.  BWEN is unmistakably growing along with wind energy.  Now is the time to get on board especially with the rest of the stock market being lackluster.

Debt-To-Equity Oil Bankruptcies And Hedge Fund Investing Suggest Oil Price Floor, Industry Rebound | Seeking Alpha

Debt-To-Equity Oil Bankruptcies And Hedge Fund Investing Suggest Oil Price Floor, Industry Rebound | Seeking Alpha



This is a very good article about how the bottom has probably happened for the price of oil.  Production of U.S. oil will continue to decline through 2017, and this will gradually diminish the oil surplus.  Investors are already getting long on oil because of the light at the end of the tunnel.  If you wait until the oil surplus disappears, you will miss out on the oil price rise.
