Maxwell Technologies (MXWL) — This manufacturer of energy storage and power delivery products broke from a base in late February on speculation that it may partner with Tesla Motors (TSLA).
On May 12, it was named in a report by Gartner as one of the year’s “Cool Vendors in Automotive Electronics.” According to Gartner, companies in this category “develop innovative technology in the areas of human-machine interface, energy storage and machine vision for automotive applications.”
Zacks notes there have been numerous earnings revisions higher recently and considers the stock “Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).” The current consensus earnings estimates are for $0.26 per share for 2014 and $0.54 for 2015.
Technically, MXWL broke from an ascending triangle following a three-month consolidation. It has accumulated sporadic bursts of buying that could signify a large buyer. MACD recently issued a strong buy signal. This is a speculative stock with a short-term target of $22, but it could run much higher in the long term.
