    IMO FCEL is the dog of the big three (BLDP, PLUG and FCEL). FCEL uses a slightly different technology and the recent contracts obtained by PLUG from FedEx and Wal-Mart did not directly benefit FCEL (BLDP supplies stacks to PLUG; PLUG does not manufacture their own).

     

    Take it for what its worth.

    It's not worth anything. The technologies are not SLIGHTLY different, they are hugely different.

    How can you even compare a gadget on a forklift to a system the size of a house or city block in South Korea's POSCO case. FCEL and PLUG DO NOT COMPARE PERIOD!!

    It's ALL hydrogen tech. Let's not make a pi**in' contest between FCEL and PLUG/BLDP. Appreciate the difference...own 'em all.

    Agreed, and its currently rising in AH trading but I still feel its the laggard in the sector. Doesn't mean it won't rise just means it wouldn't be the horse I bet on if I only pick 2 of the 3. JMHO.

    I see it down by roughly .10-.15 but that could just be a non-update

    The company is something completely different, it's a company providing a green technology that works at an industrial and utility scale. Don't buy it or sell it because of Ballard or anyone else. To buy the stock you have to believe in their technology and power generation model. I think it could have a real benefit for buildings that need uninteruptible clean power like hospitals and data centers, all the way to office parks in India and other power challenged countries, where the power grid is completely unreliable.

    s.a.: the q1 eps was -$0.06. The estimate was for $0.04. So it was not "in line" arguably. It was 50% bigger loss than estimated.

    BTW the non-gaap adjusted figure is ($0.04) not $0.04 and is still a loss.

    The only play on renewable power is Capstone Turbine (CPST).

    Capstone is not a utility scale provider, although GE and Siemens have a nice utility power business.

    actually the adjusted EPS was (-0.04) so thats pretty much in line with wall street! Then the revenue beat expectations so I would say that is why it went up after hours. It will continue to go up until Plug comes out with its earnings. This stock is the bottom of the 3 (PLUG), and (BLDP). But can't be doing to bad if it met the EPS and beat expectations on revenue.

    Contracts in the works, cash was needed (unfortunately at 1.25) to satisfy the requirements necessary to fulfill multiple proposals. Stock price will drop from here until the news is released. all imho

    2013: solar 2014:fuel cells. The ideas are the same we need to get off oil and bad omissions. Thank god companies are starting to take a stab at big oil. And I'll stand by them through gain or loss. As long as we can build a better future. It's greed of money but for the right reasons. I see growth and profit with all new emerging energy. #Long PLUG, FCEL

    potentially a fantastic biz, but there's very little margin... HYGS, BLDP are much more profitable. can't see this hype lasting very much longer. FCEL is now a 1bn cap or thereabouts...

    $FCEL is ripping higher in early trading... this thing's gonna hit $5 today if this keeps up

     

    $HPTG seems to have been completely missed out by investors in this hydrogen rally. they have a very practical solution combining hydrogen with hydrocarbons to improve the efficiency (c. 20% fuel savings) and reduce carbon emissions (up to 70%!) of diesel engines. think public transport (buses) in large metropols (beijing, mexico city), trucks and especially the maritime industry.

    I can't believe that people are taking advice from a man that pays almost $50,000.00 a month in alimony and child support all because he couldn't keep his act together. Not to mention according to wiki he has more then just those problems in his career. Everyone take a look.

     

    In 1998, Left was found by the National Futures Association to have “made false and misleading statements to cheat, defraud or deceive a customer", and disbarred for three years.[127]
    In 2002, his then employer Detour Media sued Left for "fraud and deceit, negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty and unlawful monetary conversion".[128] He was ordered to pay $26,445.62 compensation.[129]
    In 2010, Left was briefly arrested in Florida in relation to a petty[clarification needed] dispute with a drycleaner. The charges were subsequently dropped.[130]

     

    To remind you, this is what I found in public record. So if andrew left has a problem with what I post, well to bad because this is facts...

    My take on my limited reading on Andrew Left is he's done some good work on spotlighting corporate fraud, but lately has been delving into what he perceives (and wishes to short sell) as "over-marketed" or over-bought honest companies, here's an example....http://bit.ly/1iADYQr
    IMO...I'm no fan....would suggest leaving his personal life, alimony and such, out of the discussion. His other public record business issues are pertinent.
