What are Wall Street analysts saying about Westport Fuel Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Westport Fuel Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Earnings estimates for Westport Fuel for the third quarter and 2019 have been increasing in the past month. The company is well positioned to meet the growing demand for fuel systems and components. Westport HPDI 2.0 offers an environment-friendly robust performance for heavy-duty trucks. This is likely to position the company favorably, owing to a suite of market-ready alternative fuel products across all segments of transportation. Further, the company regularly undertakes acquisitions and divestments to develop technologies and edge on non-core businesses. These divestments enable the company to maintain focus on the transportation sector. However, high SG&A expenses as well as negative cash flow from operations are concerns for Westport Fuel. Persistent rise in expenses are likely to hurt the company’s margins." (10/14/2019)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We believe that investors seeking growth opportunities within the alternative fuel industry should find WPRT’s market position attractive. Before merging with Fuel Systems, WPRT was already a significant player in the heavy-duty vehicular vertical; the merger further expanded the company’s capabilities into fuel storage and strengthened its reach into light-duty automotive verticals."
