12:26 EDTPLUG, WMT, FCEL, TSLAAnalyst sees FuelCell Energy poised for large deals
FuelCell Energy (FCEL) is poised to obtain "sizeable" contracts and could reach profitability, research firm Stifel wrote in a note to investors earlier today. FuelCell Energy develops fuel cell power plants. WHAT'S NEW: FuelCell's statements about large contracts during its first quarter earnings conference were "encouraging," wrote Stifel analyst Jeffrey Osborne. Specifically, the company said that it was "waiting on final customer and regulatory approval," adding that "inquiries and activity levels globally remain high," noted Osborne. FuelCell is well-positioned to obtain close to 100 megawatts of large scale projects in the U.S., the analyst believes. In coming months FuelCell will obtain "sizable" deals that will increase investors' interest in the stock and put the company on the path to profitability, forecast the analyst. Osborne hiked his price target on the stock to $4.10 from $2.30 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. Taking a much more pessimistic view on FuelCell was research firm Ardour, which downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy in a note to investors earlier today. FuelCell reported Q1 profits and revenue that were in-line with expectations, but its backlog continued to decline and its product gross margin fell, Ardour noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Recently the shares of fuel cell makers have spiked after Morgan Stanley speculated that a battery factory being launched by Tesla (TSLA) could enable utility customers to stop using the power grid. Additionally, fuel cell supplier Plug Power (PLUG) last month revealed that it had sold 1,738 hydrogen fuel cells to Wal-Mart (WMT). In a report published yesterday that was critical of Plug Power, Citron Research said the fair value of its stock is 50c and that "with no fundamental changes now or expected in its business model," Plug Power "has 'bust' written all over it." PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, FuelCell fell 6c, or 1.5%, to $3.23. Since last Wednesday, March 6, FuelCell Energy's stock is up about 64%.

Doug McMillon, Wal-Mart Stores CEO, announced a new initiative on pay and training for U.S. associates. Approximately 500,000 full-time and part-time associates at Walmart U.S. stores and Sam's Clubs will receive pay raises in the first half of the current fiscal year. Current and future associates will benefit from this initiative, which ensures that Walmart hourly associates earn at least $1.75 above today's federal minimum wage, or $9.00 per hour, in April. The following year, by Feb. 1, 2016, current associates will earn at least $10.00 per hour. As part of today's announcement, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation also committed $100M over five years to help increase the economic mobility for entry level workers by advancing their careers. This initiative will benefit the retail and service industries. The Walmart Foundation will work with other foundations, employers, community colleges and non-profit organizations to address a fundamental challenge in America -- how to better train and advance workers in the retail and adjacent sectors. Today, more than 15 million people, including 7 million women, work in retail.
