5 Green Energy Stocks That Could Catch a 2021 Tailwind
Green energy stocks haven't always lived up to the hype. Despite years of continued adoption of solar, wind, hydroelectric and other power-generation sources, investing in the underlying companies has been a turbulent ride.

Fortunately, renewable energy stocks suddenly have friends in high places.

President-elect Joe Biden plans to invest $2 trillion in clean-energy initiatives over the next four years, with a loftier goal of making America a net-zero-emissions country by 2050. Obviously, just how much progress he can make remains largely up to the composition of Congress, but most analysts nonetheless expect a much more accommodative Washington for green energy over the next few years.

When you think of clean energy, you typically think of solar and wind, which have the biggest market share by far; they also have the distinction of being two of the fastest-growing employment sectors in the past decade, according to a 2020 Deloitte report. But there are other types of green energy - biomass, geothermal and hydropower among them. Not to mention, there are companies that help the green-energy fight without actually producing energy; think miners of lithium, which go into batteries that can be charged by renewable sources.

Adoption should only continue, too, as solar photovoltaics and onshore wind now are the cheapest ways to add new electricity-generating plants in most countries, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). It projects that total installed wind and solar PV capacity is on track to overtake natural gas in 2023 and coal in 2024.

"I see solar becoming the new king of the world's electricity markets," IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said in a statement.

Ollie's Bargain Outlet stock falls 10% after Q3 earnings
Shares of Ollie's Bargain Outlet Holdings Inc. fell more than 10% in the extended session Thursday after the grocer reported fiscal third-quarter sales and adjusted profit that topped Wall Street expectations, benefiting from increased consumer spending during the pandemic. Ollie's said it earned $45.2 million, or 68 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with $27 million, or 41 cents a share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned 65 cents a share. Net sales increased 27% to $414.4 million, the company said, with same-store sales rising 15.3% thanks to "robust" growth during the quarter due to "a significantly larger average basket and higher transactions." The company did not provide guidance. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected Ollie to report adjusted earnings of 58 cents a share on sales of $406 million. Same-store sales were seen rising 12%. Shares of Ollie's ended the regular trading day up 3.3%.

Biden confirms BlackRock exec Deese will lead his White House economic team
President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday said Brian Deese is his pick for director of the National Economic Council. News of the pick had leaked out in recent days. The director of the NEC typically serves as a gatekeeper, bringing together all economic-policy decisions facing an administration. The post doesn't require Senate confirmation. Deese worked as the NEC's deputy director during the Obama administration and more recently has been an executive at BlackRock Inc., the world's largest money manager. "Brian is among the most tested and accomplished public servants in the country -- a trusted voice I can count on to help us end the ongoing economic crisis, build a better economy that deals everybody in, and take on the existential threat of climate change in a way that creates good-paying American jobs," Biden said in a statement.

Oil futures settle higher as OPEC agrees to a gradual increase in production at the start of the year
Oil futures finished higher on Thursday, even as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and their allies, a group known as OPEC , announced that they've reached an agreement to pare current production cuts of 7.7 million barrels per day to 7.2 million barrels per day beginning in January. That essentially raises their collective production by 500,000 barrels a day. The group said it will hold monthly OPEC and non-OPEC ministerial meetings starting in January to "assess market conditions and decide on further production adjustments for the following month, with further monthly adjustments being no more than 0.5 mb/d." January West Texas Intermediate crude rose 36 cents, or 0.8%, to settle at $45.64 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
