|About: Plug Power, Inc. (PLUG)|By:, SA News Editor

Fuel cell companies had been quiet for a while but not today, as Plug Power (PLUG +18.8%) and Ballard Power (BLDP +15.8%) skyrocket amid speculation that declining volume and high short interest could be causing a short squeeze; others say the names have been trading at recent lows and may be catching a bid in response to the recent spike in solar stocks such as SolarCity.

FuelCell Energy (FCEL +1.2%) continues to gain after obtaining a federal grant, as the U.S. government pushes hydrogen energy to become a reality.

Also: ZBB +10.1%, HYG +0.4%, CPST -1.4%.
