    More Motely pieces that only us out dated valuation numbers and a reminder of PLUGs irrelevant past. Its nice to see these so called "smart' guys suc up the huge losses. How smart can they really be? Trying to talk a stock down after the good run. If they have ___facts____ before the run up , this is what impresses me. Not seat of the pants valuation guesses with out understanding they have grown that much in the past few years. Not doing DD don't impress me guys.

    20) We have just touched the market . It has great promise,” Schoenwald said. “It can produce energy efficiently, cleanly, and reliably.” He also says its technology can be disruptive. 21) *** Plug Power to amass more contracts with current customers, and there’s potential expand to Europe. That would also lift Ballard, a Plug Power supplier, and the same tide could lift FuelCell Energy and others. 22) ___ ONCE started this revolution could explode with possibilities. 23) $$$$$$$$$$$ Andy Marsh is on CNBC today to explain PLUGs position and future. $$$$$ 24) $$$ The company is investing in developing hydrogen power stations across the country. While there are currently only 14 power stations in the U.S., Plug is working on building 45 stations on its own$$$$$$$$ In its run with FedEx, the fuel cells were attached to lithium battery-powered delivery vans and doubled the range of those vans from 80 miles to 160 miles.^^^^^^^^^^^ 25)***COVER your 38% Shorty buttts and run shorty. 26) +++ With TTM revenue at $24 million, PLUG expects to gain $60 million in product revenue and $10 million in service revenue this year. They will make money!! 27) The biggest part of potential revenue comes from the turnkey deals, which are expected to be signed in the near future. A typical turnkey deal including products and services provided by Plug Power will generate revenues between $8 million to $12 million. Andy mentioned at the conference that the predicted $70 million in revenue is based on approximately 20 sites, 5 sites in which Plug Power will provide a full turnkey solution. 28) ++++ON CNBC Andy reported They are focused now on the right market Wal-Mart has made a long term commitment. 29)) -- "The six-site Wal-Mart order is also a framework contract for future sites," said Stone in a note. "We expect more deals with customers." Latham, NY-based business announced a multi-site GenKey purchase order from Wal-Mart, a deal which would see it roll out hydrogen fuel cell solutions to power electric lift truck fleets at six of Wal-Mart's North American distribution centers. The firm stated that the deal with Wal-Mart, in which Plug Power will roll out more than 1,700 hydrogen fuel cell solutions to power electric lift truck fleets at six of Wal-Mart's North American distribution centers, could lead to deals with other customers
    30) A total 1,738 GenDrive fuel cell units will be deployed over two years with a six-year GenCare service contract for each site. The first site will be deployed by the second quarter ending June of 2014.
    31) They are developing recurring revenue and a Hydrogen infrastructure. 32) The major auto builders have Fuel cell programs like Honda, Nissan, Toyota, and Hyundai…BENZ . Many are combining battery technologies. Then the world airline companies may follow the Asia lead. 32) PLUG POWER = 4-FOR-1 INVESTMENT offering investors Exponential Growth in 4 market segments,
    1. Walmart selects PLUG POWER for GenDrive Forklifts -- and orders are booked from several other Fortune 500 companies including Kroger, P&G, Mercedes & BMW. 33) Plug Power’s GenKey solution links together everything you need for a smooth transition:
    • GenDrive hydrogen fuel cell units
    • GenFuel hydrogen infrastructure
    • GenCare customer service contracts
    34) Our customers are champions of their industry – most commonly market leaders in retail, grocery, institutional food distribution and manufacturing. 35) REAL INDUSTRY-
    Powerful Benefits But both hydrogen fuel cell stocks and hydrogen fuel systems stocks are up strongly. Plug Power (NASD:PLUG), a maker of hydrogen fuel cell systems for off-road vehicles is up 122% year to date. 36) The sector is up last year for a reason. Hydrogenics Corporation (NASD:HYGS) makes hydrogen fuel cells, electrolysis, and storage solutions for stationary and portable power, and is up 122% year to date and 127% from its low a year ago. Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. (NASD:QTWW) has risen 146% this year and is up 261% from its low in April. Quantum provides fuel systems and drivetrain components to for natural gas and electric vehicles as well as hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, so its rise probably has more to do with recent natural gas contract wins, but, with or without Quantum, the sector’s rise has been impressive. MXWL the same (hot) hot hot! 37 the recent roll out of fuel cell vehicles by TESLA

  • Gave us nothing besides telling us a stock that has grown 700% in four years cant grow 100% next year. Are these fools the #$%$ of the earth with no DD or good arguments? No information besides their guess on Valuations? I would not give them another thought..........The CEO is more bullish than ever that Plug Power is moving into a rapid-growth cycle,” said Andy Marsh. “We kicked off the first quarter of 2014 by signing a multi-site, multi-year GenKey contract with Walmart that surpassed our Q1 goals. + The Market
    A)Industrial vehicles- forklifts, buggies, carts B) The transport refrigeration unit (TRU) market provides a unique opportunity for hydrogen fuel cell power, and could potentially be larger than the material handling market. There are more than 300,000 TRU trucks in operation domestically. C) Ground support equipment (GSE) is used in fleets around North America – airport tuggers, belt loaders and auxiliary power units are all GSE. D) Eectric delivery vehicles. These electric vehicles can only travel a specific distance on one charge, on average, approximately 80 miles. F) Refueling
    GenFuel- GenFuel hydrogen infrastructure GenDrive -Plug Power manufactures the industry-leading suite of GenDrive fuel cells, designed to fit seamlessly into the existing battery compartment of all major OEM material handling equipment GenCare- GenCare customer service contracts GenKey- Whole Package- With the GenKey package, Plug Power handles the power, fueling and service integration and deployment, so customers can focus on putting their new-found productivity to use.

    3) $$ $ Existing customers such as Kroger and Sysco could expand their relationship with Plug Power and award contracts for additional distribution centers. The Wal-Mart contract pertained to six distribution centers, but out of the giant retailer’s 114 centers, about 100 would be suitable for fuel cells, the analysts said. 4) ^FEB 2016 - ^announced it has received a significant GenKey contract from a leading retailer to roll out its turnkey hydrogen fuel cell system solutions at six North America distribution centers over approximately a two year period. ^Take a look back to the deals, we expect a deal to be signed soon for 3 to 6 sites, which would include 750 to 1,500 units. These units will be deployed over a 2-year period, include a 5-year service agreement, and probably exciting to us, provide recurring revenue stream, not only for service, but for hydrogen infrastructure and hydrogen. Also –other news- Plug Power is excited to highlight that the fuel cell system in the Linde Material Handing vehicle is a GenDrive fuel cell unit. And, we look forward to future stories about GenDrive customer adoption in Europe. 5) && RECHARGING THE SECTOR!!!! .! transform the energy landscape in ways that will positively impact the economy, society and environment. As architects of modern fuel cell technology,! 6) Plug Power has revolutionized the material handling industry with cost-effective power solutions that increase productivity, lower operating costs and reduce carbon footprints.

    CHRIS HILL AND TOM JACOBS did no research. They actually know little about PLUG or its technology. I would bet they have never had a five banger or heaven forbid a ten banger. They are bear trap meat. What is scary and chaotic is their ability to say nothing but the valuation is high and the company has lost before.....Daaaa .(sic) Did they see the run up? Did they have any thing about the technology or understand its customers, partners, sales, market? ......I would say a intellectual conversation on the reasons for the major car manufacturers spending millions and buying companies in the sector would be over their bubble heads. One claims to have energy sector knowledge???/ RIGHT, bubble heads that probably bobs yes to every bear piece. These guys look for ten bangers and short them. This could be a ROCKET, HYGS went straight up from 5 to 30 in two years… 2013 and 2014 are turn around years. They will merge from a “Developmental” company, To morph into a HYDRO conglomerate. New markets and new technologies could spring up around advancements only now being realized. Huge corporations like Walmart, Bridgestone, Mercedes have tested Hydro batteries and its just a matter of time before Hydro stations are built. In February 2014, Walmart placed an order for 1,738 Plug Power FCVs for their distribution warehouses in Canada and the United States. In May of this year Central Grocers placed an order with Plug Power for 182 next-generation GenDrive fuel cell units in their Joliet, Illinois facility.
    The expansion and deployment of this technology will have a ripple effect on other sectors of our economy … Airports and industries are the next logical step for similar types of fuel cell vehicles. Power predicts a market for 60,000 hydrogen fuel cells at airports once the technology is fully developed. Has PLUG monetized a technology that meets the need to mitigate a growing worldwide need for clean energy? My answer is yes. Has PLUG demonstrated that its investment in Research & Development is growing its business? Yes and it has a disruptive technology .
    The world is coming to terms with the hardships presented with carbon fuels and the world wants a change. New infrastructures around hydrogen will happen. Many countries want to build a Hydrogen infrastructure. BLDP FCEL and PLUG all carry different expertise. Toyota caught its competitors by surprise with the revolutionary Prius, the first commercially successful gasoline-electric hybrid car. Now, the Japanese firm is trying to do the same with a technology that seems straight out of science fiction. Toyota Motor Corp. will next year launch a hydrogen-powered car in the United States, Japan and Europe. For now, people at Toyota are calling it the 2015 FC car, for fuel cell. Honda Motor Co., which has set the early pace with its FCX Clarity, a sleek, purpose-built hydrogen car. Mercedes has started slow production also. "With the 2015 FC car, we think we've achieved a degree of dominance over our rivals," Satoshi Ogiso, a Toyota managing director, said in an interview at the group's global headquarters. "With the car, we make a first giant step" toward making fuel-cell vehicles practical for everyday use.

    The sector is up 100% and about to double again in 2014 by year end----- NOT AN INVESTMEN?????????? Do you believe your own #$%$? Ever hear of the Toyota's fuel cell car that will go on sale before April next year. Despite advantages that are seemingly compelling, the technology has struggled to move beyond its prototypes after several decades of research and development by industry and backing from governments. It will go main stream one day.



    But Satoshi Ogiso, the engineer leading the Toyota project, is confident there's a market that will grow in significance over time. Its a matter of timing for investors. To say the sector makes money is a little ridicules and naïve. . They are making great strides and will in time.
