Why Analysts Remain Bullish on PLUG Stock Despite Missed Forecast?

Plug Power Stock

Plug Power (PLUG:NSD), a leading provider of clean hydrogen fuel cell solutions, reported lower-than-expected financial results for the fourth quarter, causing a 2% decline in Plug Power stock during after-hours trading. The company faced challenges in constructing a hydrogen plant, introducing new products, and navigating weak macroeconomic conditions. However, management is optimistic and has reiterated its 2023 outlook, which has been well-received by Wall Street analysts.

Although Plug Power’s revenues increased 36% year-over-year to $220.7 million, it fell short of analysts’ projections of $268.17 million. Despite this, the company remains confident in achieving its revenue guidance of $1.4 billion for 2023, representing a 100% year-over-year growth. The company aims to generate $5 billion in revenues by 2026 and $20 billion by 2030 as it expands its production facilities, takes advantage of government policies, and secures green hydrogen supply agreements.

H.C. Wainwright analyst Amit Dayal predicts Plug’s growing scale and margin improvements will drive multi-fold growth in the Plug Power stock. He expects revenue to surpass $25 billion by 2032, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 42%.
