What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ballard Power Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ballard Power Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ballard Power Systems focuses on developing and bringing to market PEM fuel cell systems for transportation, stationary, and portable applications. Ballard now offers key subsystems and components that are based on technology developed in support of Ballard fuel cell products. Their focus is on further enhancing product performance, reducing costs, designing market-viable products, developing additional volume-manufacturing capabilities, and continuing to build customer and supplier relationships. " (5/7/2018)
  • 2. 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)
