One of the big things driving FCEL stock higher today is the company’s earnings. Today, FuelCell Energy reported its first-quarter earnings for fiscal 2022, which generally came in above analyst expectations. This company brought in $31.8 million in revenue, which more than doubled on a year-over-year (YOY) basis. Additionally, FuelCell’s overall loss narrowed, despite a loss from operations which widened as the company invested heavily in growing its infrastructure.

As green energy continues to remain in focus, particularly in this time of surging energy prices, investors appear to be looking favorably on companies like FuelCell Energy. This fuel-cell maker has made a number of key steps forward that investors seem to like as well. Many of these changes were highlighted in its earnings report. They include increased access to Asian markets, a “reintroduction of product sales” to the company’s revenue mix and deliveries to key clients.

So, let’s dive into where analysts think FCEL stock could be headed next.
