Plug Power Stock Analysis: Experts Warn of Challenges Ahead for Hydrogen Specialist

Kulmbach (www.aktiencheck.de) – Plug Power stock analysis from “Der Aktionär”:

In a current stock analysis, Michel Doepke from the investor magazine “Der Aktionär” takes a close look at the shares of the hydrogen specialist Plug Power Inc. (ISIN: US72919P2020, WKN: A1JA81, ticker symbol: PLUN, NASDAQ symbol: PLUG).

The start of hydrogen production in the US state of Georgia and the prospect of a billion-dollar loan from the US Department of Energy gave Plug Power shares a massive boost this trading week. However, the analysts at BMO Capital Markets would dampen expectations and downgrade the hydrogen stock to “underperform” with a price target of USD 2.50.

In his current study, analyst Ameet Thakkar referred to Plug Power’s business development conference call on Tuesday and wrote of “positive aspects”, but also of an “increasingly difficult path” between “now and when and if” the company spends the money the Department of Energy’s credit facility. Thakkar said Plug Power’s timeline for receiving the Energy Ministry’s loan appears “quite optimistic.” The hydrogen company itself expects the important loan to be finalized in the third quarter of 2024.

It remains to be seen whether the borrowed capital will actually flow from the US Department of Energy. Plug Power wants to collect short-term liquidity directly from the capital market via a so-called “ATM program” with a volume of USD 1 billion. Dilution inevitable.

The billion-dollar loan is essential for Plug Power, because given the financial development of the past few years and the full-bodied promises, it will be very difficult to obtain financially viable external financing from banks. Therefore, only the capital market remains, which the US company is now tapping into via the ATM program. Investors should continue to exercise caution and stay away from the stock for the time being, said Michel Doepke from the investor magazine “Der Aktionär” in a current stock analysis.
