What are analysts saying about American Superconductor stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about American Superconductor stock:

  • 1. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On Monday, May 1, AMSC announced it was awarded a contract for ~$8.4M for engineering and technical services from the U.S. Navy, specifically by The Naval Surface Warfare Center. In particular, the contract supports the U.S. Navy’s integration of AMSC’s high temperature superconductor (HTS)-based ship protection systems (SPS) into its surface fleet. AMSC and the U.S. Navy have collaborated on incorporating AMSC’s advanced HTS degaussing system for several years. We believe this contract opens the U.S. Navy to insert AMSC’s SPS across the Naval Surface Fleet over time through new ship builds, which we estimate to be 37 ships over the next six years. The core components of the degaussing system are transferable to other applications being targeted for ship implementation, such as applications for power, propulsion, and protection equipment. We view this contract as validation for AMSC’s HTS technology and its importance as the U.S." (5/5/2017)

The company develops and sells a wide range of products and solutions based on power electronic systems and high temperature superconductor wires that dramatically improve the efficiency, reliability and quality of electricity during its generation, transmission, distribution and use.
