American Superconductor (AMSC - Get Report)
Fifty-Two Week Range: $11.66-$43.95
Market Cap: $1.39 Billion
American Superconductor is an industry leader in large-scale wind turbine designs and electrical control systems. The company has devoted a lot of its time and energy to developing a host of smart-grid technologies, including superconductor power cable systems, surge protectors and voltage stabilization systems.
And don't let the company's name fool you -- AMSC is a true global player. In early February, American Superconductor landed a $70 million contract for wind turbine electrical control systems in China. That surely got GE's attention. And after four quarterly reports in a row that topped expectations by an average of more than 70%, you can bet Wall Street is paying attention to AMSC too.
