Plug Power (PLUG)
Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) specializes in hydrogen fuel cell technology. Despite facing a significant drop in stock value over the past year, the company has ambitious targets, aiming for substantial revenue growth in the coming years.
Like other hydrogen stocks on this list, the stock price of PLUG plunged due to fears of rising long-term Treasury bond yields. These companies, sensitive to interest rates, are impacted by surging bond yields, threatening their valuations and capital-raising abilities.
However, given its long-term growth outlook, the company’s stock appears to be attractively valued. With ambitious revenue targets and a focus on green hydrogen production, the company seems poised for a potential rebound and long-term growth. This helps make it one of the best hydrogen stocks to buy.
