Oppenheimer Reaffirms Their Buy Rating on Fuelcell Energy

By Austin Angelo

Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch maintained a Buy rating on Fuelcell Energy (NASDAQ: FCEL) yesterday and set a price target of $4. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $1.74.

Rusch wrote:

“FCEL posted solid revenue but disappointing GM on product and generation revenue. We expect both to recover as revenue grows, especially as the company finishes liquidating high cost inventory. We continue to believe FCEL has a clear path to cash flow breakeven as it grows product sales to Korea and expands its owned project portfolio. We are encouraged by Korean customer signals, project wins in the US, and progress on securing project financing. We would not be surprised to see the company to be able to announce new orders in Korea over the coming months as it moves forward building the US portfolio. We remain constructive on the shares as we believe concerns about sustainable growth and cash burn are overblown.”

According to TipRanks.com, Rusch is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 15.0% and a 49.6% success rate. Rusch covers the Industrial Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Capstone Turbine Corp, Amer Superconductor, and Canadian Solar Inc.
