    The $30 MILLION NEW ORDER could be the DIAGEO DEAL that was previously rumored by a source that correctly predicted the VOLKSWAGON DEAL.

    According to the CEO of Plug Power, this $30 MILLION NEW ORDER could be announced by the end of Q3-14 (Within 1 month & 8 days).

    BUY MORE +++ HOLD MORE +++ ADD MORE PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" !! !!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    At $1+ per share, you were absolutely wrong about the IMMINENT RAPID REVENUE GROWTH.

    Now, at $5.81 -- PLUG POWER has several catalysts to propel the share price higher:

    * NEW $30 MILLION ORDER (Pending Announcement);

    * REPEAT ORDERS from "many" Fortune 500 existing customers;

    * EXPANSION in Europe & Asia via J.V. deals;

    * NEW FUEL CELL MARKET -- AIRPORT TUGGERS at the Memphis Airport with FEDEX.

    * VERTICAL INTEGRATION of Hydrogen Production (On-Site) -- to deliver "gaseous" Hydrogen Fuel to the Retail Market -- which will increase the Addressable Market by 30%.

    * LOWER COSTS = EXPANDING "GROSS MARGINS" as factory throughput volumes increase -- and economies-of-scale cost-reductions are realized.

    * WALMART is now "ALL IN" with PLUG POWER. And, WALMART is a "Showcase" customer....as HONDA signed-on after visiting the WALMART operation in-person. SEEING is BELIEVING !! !! WALMART is both SAVING MONEY & INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY !! !!

    * EYE-OPENING MEGA-TREND ---- PLUG POWER is capturing the entire Auto Manufacturing Sector worldwide, evidenced by the signing of the following customers as a fantastic start -- BMW, MERCEDES BENZ, VOLKSWAGON & now -- just signed -- HONDA !! !!

    This GROWTH STORY is JUST BEGINNING !! !!

    INVEST in PLUG.... while the price is still low. When the numbers are realized, the PLUG share price will be much much higher !! !!

    PLUG is gaining traction...as more & more investors SEE THE GROWTH TREND !! !!

    BUY MORE +++ HOLD MORE +++ ADD MORE PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" !! !!

    P.S. -- SA "bullish" article just published tonight. When that $30 MILLION "new order" is booked that the CEO spoke of on the last Conference Call -- and Plug Power issues the Press Release, I expect PLUG shares to be up 10%+ that day. Can you say - "PARABOLIC $HORT $QUEEZE"?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    The shorts currently holding are the BRAIN DEAD ones.... The smart shorts have already covered and exited their positions due to the fundamentally - strong improvements in Plug Power.

    WATCH THE SHORT SQUEEZE AHEAD..... it will be BEAUTIFUL TO SEE !! !!

    Plug Power books revenues when shipments are made... The GenDrive Fuel Cells & Infrastructure Refueling Stations are invoiced on the front-end. Typically, over a 5-year term, Plug Power will receive Service Revenues and also Hydrogen Fuel Revenues.

    An important improvement that resonated with me from the last Conference Call was this... PLUG's Service Team installed the infrastructure for WALMART in ONLY 13 WEEKS !! !! That was a very fast installation -- which means Plug Power can "invoice" the customer for faster payment.

    Another highlight was the fact that WALMART allowed PLUG to "showcase" their Plug Power GenDrive Fuel Cells in operation for HONDA executives -- which sealed the deal with HONDA !! !! Everyone in logistics / warehouse operations KNOWS that WALMART does not invest $50 Million for Plug Power's GenDrive Fuel Cells unless they will SAVE MONEY & INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY. Obviously, HONDA was very impressed -- because they became a "new customer" for Plug Power this quarter after touring the WALMART facility and seeing for themselves.

    In the near-term, Plug Power will be able to EXPAND into the RETAIL MARKETS nationwide -- adding an additional 30% more Target Addressable Market -- because PLUG plans to PRODUCE HYDROGEN at 1 or 2 locations --- strategically positioned to supply RETAIL MARKETS. I do not believe that investors are even factoring in this exciting GROWTH OPPORTUNITY. And, what makes it so exciting is this... The MARGINS will be much higher in the RETAIL MARKET with PLUG supplying Hydrogen as the "Producer" ---and--- delivering it in a "gaseous" form directly to the RETAIL MARKETS in a similar model to the way Propane is delivered. Once Plug Power has this Logistic Blueprint in-place, it can be duplicated nationwide in the future. Investors MUST LOOK AHEAD and open their eyes to the new Hydrogen Economy that is its infancy right now.

    INVEST in PLUG +++ Ahead of the Herd +++ BUY MORE +++ ADD MORE +++ HOLD MORE !!

    ANNUALIZED TOTAL REVENUE GROWTH YEAR-OVER-YEAR OF 130.67% !! !!

    Conservatively, I estimate that Plug Power will grow revenues AT LEAST BY 50% PER YEAR for the next several years !! !!

    BUY MORE +++ HOLD MORE +++ ADD MORE PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" !! !!

    P.S. -- The $30 MILLION "Major Deal" will spark a MAJOR $HORT $QUEEZE -- pushing PLUG shares past $8.00 per share.... SO, BUY MORE PLUG on MONDAY MORNING -- AHEAD OF THE HERD !! !!

    What is $hort $eller's Worst Nightmare? READ BELOW --

    NEXT MONDAY MORNING +++ PLUG will SOAR HIGHER +++ This GREAT NEWS is being spread across the investor radar screens...

    From the Q2-14 Press Release of PLUG POWER's Financial Results, I quote:

    BEGIN QUOTE

    Plug Power shipped 687 GenDrive fuel cell units during the second quarter to customers including Walmart, P&G and Central Grocers. The Company also reports a gross margin of 17% on its GenDrive product for the second quarter. Even more notably, Plug Power revenue, at $17.3 million for the second quarter, is three-fold greater than that seen in the first quarter of 2014.

    During the second quarter, the Company successfully deployed its first, complete GenKey site at the Walmart distribution center in Pottsville, PA. GenKey is Plug Power's all-inclusive solution that couples together GenDrive fuel cells, GenCare service and GenFuel hydrogen and fueling infrastructure for use in material handling applications. As a result of the effective deployment in Pottsville, Walmart added an additional site in Sterling, IL to the original six-site contract.

    Plug Power has experienced success in the food and retail material handling sector, but has also proven an economically-driven value proposition within the automotive manufacturing market in the second quarter of 2014. The Company has secured GenDrive and GenKey deals with Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Honda. The Company expects that success within the auto-manufacturing market will open up a plethora of global opportunities as these customers standardize on hydrogen fuel cells to power the electric lift trucks at their manufacturing sites worldwide.

    BUMP UP the SOLID INVESTMENT via "proof" that Plug Power's GenDrive Fuel Cells do 2 things for customers:

    (1) SAVE MONEY; and....

    (2) INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY.

    Soon, every Auto Manufacturer in the world will adopt Plug Power's GenDrive Fuel Cells. If they do not, then their competitors will have the advantage.

    BUY MORE +++ HOLD MORE +++ ADD MORE PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" !! !!

    Just read the WALMART CASE STUDY -- This is all the proof you need to know that WALMART is "right" -- and I am "right" too. Others followed the lead of WALMART -- because they KNOW that WALMART does not make a $50 MILLION investment in Plug Power's GenDrive Fuel Cells unless they save money & increase productivity.

    Just do a Google Search of:

    "Case Study - Walmart Canada Fuel Cell Forklift Fleet"

    The entire fleet of material handling equipment at the new Walmart Perishable Distribution Centre (PDC) in Balzac Alberta is powered by hydrogen fuel cells.

    Walmart’s decision to incorporate hydrogen fuel cell forklifts and palette trucks in the 400,000 sq. ft. facility followed the successful completion of a four-month trial of fuel cell forklifts at two distribution centres. The trial logged more than 18,000 hours, 2,100 indoor hydrogen fuelings and achieved a 3.5% increase in productivity over comparable battery-powered forklifts.

    Using hydrogen produced by Air Liquide from 98% hydroelectric power, the Plug Power GenDrive units - with fuel cells from Ballard Power Systems - are delivering significant operating cost savings and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

    Benefits include:

    Greenhouse Gas Emission savings: 530 tonnes of CO2 per year
    ROI: Operating cost savings of $2 million dollars projected over a 7-year period
    Space savings: Eliminated battery-charging area creating more valuable warehouse space
    Increased productivity: Longer operation, no battery swapping, less than 3 minute refuelling
    Improved performance: Constant full power output throughout shift as low as -29˚C condition
    Improved brand: Commitment to provide products that sustain people and the environment

    REPEAT CUSTOMERS & EXISTING CUSTOMERS about to make REPEAT ORDERS -- WALMART, HONDA, KROGER, MERCEDES BENZ, BMW, VOLKSWAGON, ACE HARDWARE, WHOLE FOODS, CENTRAL GROCERS, FEDEX, etc. etc.

    PLUG POWER's GenDrive Fuel Cells DO 2 THINGS:

    (1) SAVE MONEY; and...

    PLUG POWER is making definite progress on ALL FRONTS...

    + Revenue Momentum -- Using WALMART as a "showcase" to secure a deal with "HONDA". Look for more "showcase" events to happen in the future.

    + Margin Expansion due to increase factory throughput.

    + New Fuel Cell Market to be entered in Q4-14 (AIRPORT TUGGERS -- Supplying the Memphis Operations of FEDEX).

    + VERTICAL INTEGRATION -- PRODUCTION of HYDROGEN FUEL at two (2) anticipated locations in the USA -- to supply growing demand for Hydrogen Fuel from customers nationwide.

    + HYPULSION JOINT VENTURE in Europe ramping up. PLUG will have the option to buy it out in the future.

    + ASIAN COLLABORATION could create a formal Joint Venture with HYSCO / HYUNDAI to sell High-Power, Low-Cost Fuel Cells in the Asian Market.

    + $30 MILLION MAJOR DEAL (in the works) -- Could be "booked" by the end of this quarter (Q3-14) -- Listen to the Conference Call and hear for yourself !! !!

    PLUG has now matured from a "speculative" investment to a SOLID AGGRESSIVE STRONG BUY for LONG-TERM INVESTORS who wish to make fortunes in the next 5 years. BUY & HOLD....

    INVEST in PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" -- to benefit from 50%+ REVENUE GROWTH for the next several years !! !!

  • white_knight_in_texas white_knight_in_texas Aug 15, 2014 10:15 AM Flag

    I was right.

    Revenues up strong... Gross Margin (GM) at 17% - trending to Mid-20% GM in Q4.

    C-o-w-e-n has just reaffirmed their PRICE TARGET of $8.00 per share.

    When the Service Issues are totally resolved by year end, the GM and PROFIT MARGIN are going to increase significantly -- PRESSURING the share price above $8.00 per share.

    The $30 MILLION NEW ORDER that is could be received before the end of Q3-14 will be a MAJOR CATALYST -- pressuring the share price even higher !! !!

    PLUG is no longer a "Spec" investment.... but has transitioned into a STRONG BUY for AGGRESSIVE INVESTORS seeking to make fortunes over the "long-term".

    PLUG is also moving into NEW FUEL CELL segments (e.g. - Airport Tuggers at the Memphis Airport with FEDEX by year-end) ----AND---- PLUG has a fast-growing Joint Venture in Europe (HYPULSION) and in Asia there is a collaboration with HYUNDAI / HYSCO to develop LOW-COST, HIGH-POWER Fuel Cell Stacks for the Asian Market.

    PLUG is a SOLID INVESTMENT for the "LONG-TERM" !! !!

    Correct... It is hard to predict if the $30 MILLION NEW ORDER is from a New Customer or an EXISTING CUSTOMER. Plug Power's EXISTING CUSTOMERS, many of which are Fortune 500 companies, could easily spend $30 MILLION is convert their ENTIRE FORKLIFT FLEET from legacy "lead-acid" batteries to the more-efficient Plug Power GenDrive Fuel Cells.

    INVEST in PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" !! !! In 5 years, just the Margin Expansion will cause PLUG shares to double off this low price level. With International Expansion AND new fuel cell markets, PLUG shares are going to fly higher !! !!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • white_knight_in_texas white_knight_in_texas Aug 14, 2014 12:16 PM Flag

    As NEW ORDERS (like the one that could hit by the end of Q3-14) are booked from NEW and/or EXISTING CUSTOMERS, PLUG shares will soar higher !! !!

    Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) is dropping like a rock as factory throughput increases... This is just the beginning of Gross Margins exploding higher !! !! Joint Ventures proving fruitful by creating LOW-COST, HIGH-POWER Fuel Cell Stacks .... will be HUGE for Plug Power going forward.

    PLUG POWER is like a baby Chetah cub in the wild... As it grows up, the SPEED will be breathtaking.... The GROSS MARGINS & PROFIT MARGINS are going to explode higher -- ROCKING THE WORLD of the Nefariou$ $hort Thugs -- who deserve all that will be brought into their world of mi$leading krap.

    Major Auto Manufacturers LOVE the GenDrive Fuel Cells as they are proving to LOWER COSTS & INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY on their assembly lines (NO MORE "Battery Droop" from legacy "lead-acid" batteries). I expect a Major Auto Manufacturer to deliver the est. $30 Million Deal (Major Order anticipated by the end of Q3-14) !! !! LOAD UP -- in anticipation -- AHEAD OF THE HERD !! !! When the deal hits the news wires, PLUG shares will be up 10%+ !! !!

    BUY MORE +++ HOLD MORE +++ ADD MORE PLUG for the "LONG-TERM" !! !!
