Westport Innov Receives a Buy from Oppenheimer
In a report released today, Colin Rusch from Oppenheimer maintained a Buy rating on Westport Innov (NASDAQ: WPRT), with a price target of $4. The company’s shares opened today at $2.84.
“WPRT posted upside to revenue and adjusted EBITDA for 1Q18 while reiterating guidance for reaching EBITDA breakeven by the end of 2Q:18. We believe the company’s restructuring is paying dividends and the important growth drivers are in place with HPDI 2.0, a broad portfolio that even reaches into hydrogen-based vehicles. We believe WPRT investors are encouraged by the company providing FY guidance, even as it is roughly in line with Street expectations. We view TOT taking a stake in CLNE as evidence of the ongoing diversification of transportation fuels and believe WPRT has both a strong IP and product position to benefit from that diversification. We increase our PT to $4 from $3.50 and remain buyers.”
According to TipRanks.com, Rusch is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 15.9% and a 51.4% success rate. Rusch covers the Industrial Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Capstone Turbine Corp, Canadian Solar Inc, and Fuelcell Energy.
