What are analysts saying about Ballard Power Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ballard Power Systems stock:

  • 1. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Analyst day highlights robust China mobility opportunity. We attended Ballard’s investor day in New York last Thursday and we see a vastly different company than two years ago when the company last held such an event. We highlight the following key takeaways. First, we believe the company is on a path to consistent profitability with steady cost reductions and boasts a record order book. Second, Ballard’s deep and broad fuel cell knowledge and expertise sets them apart in the sector, as highlighted by their partner Broad-Ocean Motor. Third, heavy-duty (HD) motive opportunities abound within China, Europe and eventually Japan and the U.S., a $5B TAM. Fourth, commercial sales of unmanned aerial vehicles should be another source of growth. The electrification of heavy-duty mobility yield high- margin sales, typically 30%-plus gross margins, and we believe China is in the early stages of deploying commercial electric vehicles (buses, trams trucks, etc.) to promote cleaner transportation. Ultimately we believe Ballard’s position in China is ahead of its competitors and its addressable market opportunities are expanding." (9/18/2017)
