What are 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. " (8/8/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Ballard beat our and consensus 4Q expectations for revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and EPS and delivered 51% YOY revenue in 2016. The company's firm orderbook of $85M is up 46% YOY (versus $58M at this time in 2016), and management guided to 2017 gross margin above the 30% range. We expect China-based heavy-duty (HD) motive wins (bus, light rail, and other commercial vehicles) and technology solutions to drive approximately 29% YOY growth in 2017. As Ballard's Chinese JV builds out its local stack production facility, we see multiple opportunities for product cost downs as volumes ramp. There is potential upside if Ballard's recent partnership with Broad-Ocean develops faster than we currently predict. Finally, we see continued solid execution as Ballard diversifies its customer base, product offerings, and sustainably higher margins, and also forecast the company to reach net profitability in 2H18. We remain buyers." (3/3/2017)
