Forgotten Energy Technology Shines

The company reported that for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, it cut losses by 18 percent when compared with the year before, but revenue fell slightly to $19.7 million. The company said its sales backlog at fiscal year-end was $154.3 million, its largest ever. During 2010, FuelCell Energy also received its first order from an electric utility, Pacific Gas & Electric (PCG - Get Report).

On Jan. 10, FuelCell Energy announced that it had agreed to sell 10.2 million units to an investor, which will raise $17.8 million for product development and expansion of manufacturing capacity.

Analysts following FuelCell Energy have remained fairly bullish on shares, with three of the six following the company rating it a "strong buy." Currently, the median 12-month price target is $3.25, which represents 63 percent upside potential.

FuelCell Energy's stock has doubled since moving below $1 in August, and I would have to label any investment in this company as speculative. But as the world's power demands continue to grow and alternatives become increasingly competitive, we're likely to hear more about fuel cells.
