Oppenheimer Keeps Their Buy Rating on Westport Fuel Systems (WPRT)

According to The Fly, shares of Westport Fuel Systems (WPRT) were revisited by a Wall Street analyst today. The company received a Buy rating from Oppenheimer’s analyst Colin Rusch.

Rusch commented:

“WPRT followed up a record quarter with another solid result showing modest upside to revenue and Adjusted EBITDA expectations while updating guidance in line with Street expectations. We believe WPRT continues to make important progress on critical initiatives including growing sales of light duty vehicles in Europe, introducing HPDI 2.0, and signing a take or pay supply agreement with Weichai Westport. Cost savings efforts are largely complete, and focus for WPRT is now on growing sales and showing operating leverage. Going forward we believe investors will be looking for revenue growth, resolution to SEC investigation-related costs, progress on clarifying the relationship with CMI as the CWI JV reaches end of life, and lower interest expenses.”

According to, Rusch is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 10.7% and a 51.3% success rate. Rusch covers the Industrial Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Capstone Turbine Corp, Amer Superconductor, and Canadian Solar Inc.
