NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of FuelCell Energy (FCEL) - Get Report are tumbling by 16.21% to $6.15 on Thursday morning, after the Danbury, CT-based company reported a wider-than-expected loss for the 2016 fiscal second quarter.

After yesterday's closing bell, the fuel cell power plant company posted a net loss of 56 cents per share, while analysts were expecting a loss of 40 cents per share.

Revenue was $28.6 million for the quarter, lower than Wall Street's forecasts of $35.02 million.

Product sales were $15.4 million compared to $20.2 million in the same period last year.

Service agreements and license revenues totaled $10.6 million vs. $4.6 million the year prior. The increase was largely due to revenue recognized from module replacements.

The company designs, manufactures, operates and services ultra-clean and efficient fuel cell power plants.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Sell" rating with a score of D- on the stock.
