How the hydrogen and fuel cell companies are doing

Posted by ben @ 10:32 PM | Permanent Link

I've been tracking a number of energy companies on the stock market since January and thought I'd share how they've been doing. I organize them into sectors: Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, Wind Power, Photovoltaics, Biomass, Coal Power and Oil & Gas. Below you'll find how each of these sectors are doing compared to each other. The y-axis is the total stock price of the index divided by the stock price of the index since January 7.


Not surprisingly, the fossil fuel sector is doing the best, the coal power companies are actually beating the oil & gas sector. Out of the renewable energy technologies, wind power is the best followed by the photovoltaic industry, then the hydrogen and fuel cell industry and finally the biomass industry.

The next figure shows how the hydrogen and fuel cell industry is dong compared to the total market indicators (Dow + Nasdaq + S&P 500) and also the entire energy sector (accumulation of all the energy sectors in the above figure).



The energy sector blows everything out of the water. The total energy sector is up by 49% since January 2005, the fuel cell sector is up by 4.04% since January, the Dow is up by 0.36%, the Nasdaq is up by 3.43% and the S&P 500 is up by 4.36%, all since January.

The hydrogen and fuel cell sector closely follows the market indicators. I was at a a green energy conference a few weeks ago and there was a business professor tracking the same thing and he concluded that investors don't perceive the hydrogen and fuel cell industry to be energy related, they perceive it to be more technology related and that's why it follows the market indicators more so than the true energy companies.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
