RS Rating of just 11 out of a best-possible 99
Considering the stock’s illustrious past, high-tech future, high-priced valuation, and upcoming IPO, it’s no surprise that Plug Power (PLUG) is trading at a premium. The company is raising capital to finance its wildly ambitious buildout plan, which should give the stock an edge in the long term. Its most recent quarterly report spooled the industry’s sexiest figures, with net sales rising 31% yearly to $188.6 million. This was accompanied by news of a green hydrogen production plant in southern Pennsylvania. It’s also been announced that the company plans to unveil a high-tech manufacturing platform that will enable it to produce hydrogen fuel cells for other industries. It should be interesting to watch the price of the stock rise over the next several years.

EPS Rating of 6
EPS is a popular indicator of a company’s performance. In absolute terms, it may not have much to say to investors, but in the context of the stock market, it is a good indication of a company’s relative performance.
For example, if a company beats the analysts’ consensus EPS estimates, its stock price is likely to jump. However, if a company’s EPS misses its estimates, its stock price could crash.
The simplest way to measure a company’s profitability is to look at its net income dollars each year. The company’s stock price then acts as a proxy for its earnings.
