What are Wall Street analysts saying about American Superconductor stock?

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "American Superconductor Corporation is a leading energy technologies company. 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. The company is a dominant force in alternative energy, offering grid interconnection solutions as well as licensed wind energy designs and electrical systems. As the world's principal supplier of HTS wire, AMSC is enabling a new generation of compact, high-power electrical products, including power cables, grid-level surge protectors, motors, generators, and advanced transportation and defense systems. AMSC also provides utility and industrial customers worldwide with voltage regulation systems that dramatically enhance power grid capacity, reliability and security, as well as industrial productivity. " (8/8/2018)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Acquisition bolsters Naval opportunities and cements competitive position. As AMSC anticipated on its F1Q17 earnings call, the company secured a third Naval contract for ship protection systems (SPS) earlier this month. To support its expected growth in SPS deployments, AMSC acquired Infinia Technology Corp. (ITC), a designer and developer of cryo-cooling technologies, on September 26. AMSC now offers the controller (HTS wire), connector, computer interface, and cooling system to deliver a complete SPS. AMSC believes adding cryo-cooling technology should increase dollar content (by 10%–20%), expand the gross margin, and cement its competitive position as the Navy begins to ramp SPS orders. AMSC has spent years pursuing Naval opportunities, and with the recent SPS order and this acquisition, we are more positive on AMSC’s grid segment growth and see potential for an annuity- like revenue stream with the Navy."
