Plug Power Earnings: PLUG Stock Falls After Posting Q4 Loss

Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) starts off its earnings report for the fourth quarter of the year with losses per share of 7 cents. This is an improvement over the company’s losses per share of 9 cents from the fourth quarter of 2017. However, it is still bad news for PLUG stock by coming in below analysts’ losses per share estimate of 6 cents for the period.

The Plug Power earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2018 also includes a net loss of $16.85 million. This is better than the company’s net loss of $19.44 million reported in the same period of the year prior.

Plug Power earnings for the fourth quarter of 2018 also have revenue coming in at $59.82 million.
