All of the alternate fuel transportation companies have come down. Medium to longer term they are likely good investments. This is the original alternative fuel car.

They have done a couple of large financings. He thinks we are entering the golden age for hydrogen. We are still early in this one. He thinks it has a place in the portfolio as a speculative position.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks BLDP stock pays no dividend and the EPS is negative. The stock narrowly missed earnings in the last three of four quarters (the fourth was in-line). Ballard is a polarizing stock where the bulls see a 38% gain in these shares to nearly $42. Why not? BLDP stock jumped to $50 two months ago, but then slid to its current $30 range.

They make hydrogen fuel cells. It is not a new or an emerging company and has never turned a profit in 25 years. He sees it as a science project. It is a show-me story.

He has a small position in BLDP instead of PLUG, as it's a recognized leader with a track record in PEM technology. They've diversified outside autos and into buses and forklifts, trains and ships. Will do well as the market grows and the infrastructure builds out.

Valuations are excessive for this group. You have to look too far down the road to see when they're going to be making money. A classic long duration asset, which does better when interest rates are falling.

Very hot sector right now. Valuation is too high. Boralex would give you less volatility. If you want more torque and beta, and you want to play hydrogen, a name like Xebec Adsorption is better. Mostly renewable nat gas, but expanding into hydrogen by buying a uniquely profitable company. It's still expensive, but much cheaper than Ballard.

Ballard and its peers The 25-year chart: in 1998-2000, it leapt from a few dollars to $20 then back down. ROE has been positive once in the past 15 years. He's not a scientist, so doesn't know how hydrogen fuel cells work, and this technology was hyped 20 years ago as the future, but it hasn't panned out. He fails to see a steady ROE or growing free cash flow here. As for its peers, none of them meet this criteria either. We're seeing big speculation in alternative energy. These stocks don't stand on their own two feet, at least not now. Perhaps in the future. BLDP is a spec play at best.

Polarizing stock. If you like Tesla, you've got to like Ballard. He doesn't like either. It's not so much a stock as it is a science project. It's been around since 1994, and it's lost money in every one of those years, with losses mounting since 2018. Even with electrification, not projected to make money anytime soon.

They just did a $250 million bought deal. They sold 13 million @ $19.25. It went nuts today. Take some profits. Otherwise, wait on this before entering.

They are at the forefront of the renewable energy space with their products. Hydrogen is part of the renewable space. It is volatile because of time of sale and adoptability of products. The space is growing however. Under a Biden presidency, we would expect more investment here. It will probably be a long time horizon however.

In the past year, the shares have gone parabolic along with the Tesla rally. Too volatile and speculative for him. He prefers predictable cash flows.

A leader in hydrogen fuel cell technology. It has had some false starts with excitement that fizzled out. With a real push to lower emission power, governments will be investing in clean energy. It is a go-to company to invest in the hydrogen space. It could see volatility but expectations will continue to increase.
