JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster downgraded FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ: FCEL) from Neutral to Underweight noting that Hydrogen pure-play stocks have outperformed the S&P 500 massively, y/y and in 2021 YTD. EV/sales multiples are elevated and, although may make sense when viewed against the massive long-term growth prospects, the analyst is looking for pullbacks to opportunistically build long-term positions.

The analyst initiated a $10 price target and sees shares as overvalued today. He stated "FuelCell’s SOFC solutions could take even longer to commercialize, but the firm also has strong backlog and a strengthened balance sheet with which to execute on the current portfolio of SureSource solutions. The optionality in FCEL lies in the versatility of its molten-carbonate technology in industrial applications (power, heating, hydrogen production, and carbon capture), so we monitor the stock for a breakout contract in the industrial, chemical, or energy sector. We raise our out-year revenue and earnings estimates for FCEL and establish a $10 price target today, but we think the stock richly valued here".
