Fuel Cell Stocks – Top Fuel Cell Stocks 2017
Fuel Cell Stocks – Fuel Cell Stocks could turn hot in 2017 if oil rallies and alternative energy stocks come back into favor. After the bubble popped a few years ago, the Fuel Cell Stocks have come back down to earth and are looking attractive again but risky. The Fuel Cell sector was probably the hottest sector in the stock market three years ago aside from the marijuana stocks. The rise in Fuel Cell Stocks reminded me of the solar stock bubble several years ago but as long as investors keep investing in these companies, they will continue to be volatile. Below is a list of Fuel Cell Stocks to Watch in 2017.
Top Fuel Cell Stocks – Plug Power (PLUG) is the best fuel cell stock to buy in 2017 if you are positive on fuel cell technology. While the CEO predicted that the company would be profitable three years ago, this never happened and PLUG shares have dropped from $9 to $1.50. As we head into 2017, oil is still down 50% from the high creeping back up again. These Fuel Cell Stocks and Alternative Energy Stocks can really heat up again if oil see a big spike. If the above does happen, PLUG can big a 50% to 100% gainer in 2017.
