10:30 EDTPLUG, FCEL, BLDPPlug Power slumps after two firms downgrade shares
Shares of fuel cell maker Plug Power (PLUG) are sinking after two research firms downgraded the stock in notes to investors earlier today. Plug Power develops fuel cell systems for industrial off-road vehicles, including forklifts and electric lift trucks. WHAT'S NEW: Roth Capital analyst Matt Koranda downgraded Plug Power to Neutral from Buy. The company's fourth quarter results, announced yesterday morning, suggested that the momentum of its bookings is slowing, the analyst believes. Although Plug Power's bookings still appear set to grow at a rate that exceeds historic levels, much of that growth already seems to be reflected in the stock, contended the analyst. Koranda also warned that some of Plug Power's shipments could be delayed because a majority of its products are being shipped to customers that still have to add hydrogen infrastructure. Adding the infrastructure could take longer than expected, wrote Koranda, who nonetheless raised his price target on the shares to $8 from 80c. Also downgrading Plug Power was Cowen analyst Robert Stone. The company's sales should rise this year as its bookings look strong, and its gross margins should increase as volumes rise and some costs decline, Stone contended. However, he believes that the stock's valuation looked "full" before trading today. Stone cut his rating on the shares to Market Perform from Outperform. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Plug Power fell 4.5% to $7.64. Other fuel cell makers also dropped, with FuelCell Energy (FCEL) slumping 5% to $3.16 and Ballard Power Systems (BLDP) losing 2.3% to $5.85.

16:20 EDTPLUGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after the U.S. took new action to clamp down on tax inversion deals and led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, while Europe reported weaker than expected manufacturing data. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA's home price index rose 0.1% in July to 212.7, missing expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Markit's preliminary manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September came in at 57.9, slightly below the consensus forecast for a 58.0 reading. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing PMI rose to 50.5 from a final reading of 50.2 in August, better than expectations. In Europe, Markit's composite flash PMI for the eurozone dipped to a nine-month low of 52.3, missing expectations for it to hold steady with its 52.5 reading for August. COMPANY NEWS: The shares of a number of companies that have announced or been speculated as targets in tax inversion deals fell after the U.S. Treasury last night issued new regulations that will make such deals less attractive. AstraZeneca (AZN), which has previously turned down an offer to be acquired by the U.S.'s Pfizer (PFE), sank $3.54, or 4.74%, to $71.13 despite a Bloomberg report that said Pfizer is still considering pursuing a deal with the U.K. drugmaker. AbbVie (ABBV), which has a deal in progress to acquire Shire (SHPG) and thus move its tax domicile to Ireland, fell $1.15, or 1.96%, to $57.56, while Shire shares slid $5.56, or 2.17%, to $250.74. Medtronic (MDT), which is pursuing its own inversion deal with Covidien (COV), dropped $1.90, or 2.88%, to $64.08. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Herbalife (HLF), which rose $3.88, or 9.65%, to $44.09, bouncing back from a pullback yesterday that had been attributed to rumors of Carl Icahn selling out of his stake in the company. Also higher was Plug Power (PLUG), which rose 40c, or 9.57%, to $4.58 after the company's CEO gave FY15 revenue guidance that was above the consensus Street view in an interview with the Albany Business Review. Among the noteworthy losers was Ascena Retail (ASNA), which dropped $2.78, or 16.82%, to $13.75 after the apparel retailer's fourth quarter results and fiscal 2015 profit outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of used car retailer CarMax (KMX), which fell $5.01, or 9.49%, to $47.80 after the company reported sluggish comparable used car sales in its second quarter. INDEXES: The Dow declined 116.81, or 0.68%, to 17,055.87, the Nasdaq dropped 19.00, or 0.42%, to 4,508.69, and the S&P 500 fell 11.52, or 0.58%, to 1,982.77.
14:26 EDTPLUGPlug Power CEO sees FY15 revenue of $130M, Albany Biz Review says
Plug Power CEO Andy Marsh sees its new agreement with M&T Bank to offer financing packages for its GenKey systems to allow customers to decide more quickly on purchases, which will help the company accelerate its revenue, reported Albany Business Review, citing an interview with Marsh. Marsh said the new financing will help Plug generate more than $75M in revenue this year and that the company is "on track to do $130M in revenue in 2015," the report added. Consensus estimates for Plug Power's revenue in FY14 and FY15 are $75.93M and $126.37M, respectively. Reference Link
