What are analysts saying about Plug Power stock?

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

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "LVLT reported weak 4Q revenues, driven primarily by challenges in international markets: a double-digit CNS revenue decline in EMEA (–15.1% YOY , –7.3% YOY at constant currency). More specifically, EMEA and Latin American wholesale markets saw accelerated revenue declines. EMEA weakness is attributed to customer disconnects at the end of 2015, making YOY comparisons difficult. Consolidation continues to drive wholesale weakness, with the expectation of annual declines going forward. While LVLT’s datacenter business remains challenged in EMEA and North American markets, management does not have plans to exit this business since it receives profitable 3x bandwidth attached revenues. Higher-margin Enterprise CNS revenue has grown nicely in both Latin and North America, helping to drive a 100-bp YOY improvement in the network access margin. With no identifiable organic catalysts for LVLT in the near and medium term, we believe the synergistic merger with a rural-centric CenturyLink is the best way forward to drive shareholder value." (2/9/2017)
