rallied 3.5% in premarket trading Tuesday, to bounce off an 11-month closing low in the previous session, after Raymond James analyst Pavel Molchanov said he was even more bullish on the hydrogen play, citing a more attractive valuation.

has rallied 14.5% this year), has made it more attractive. “As a textbook story stock in one of clean tech’s most popular but polarizing verticals, Bloom is a high-beta, aggressive growth idea,” Molchanov wrote in a note to clients. “We look at Bloom’s positioning vis-à-vis energy resilience solutions–in the context of climate adaptation, specifically the growing prevalence of grid outages–as an aspect of the business that is not fully appreciated.” He said the upcoming foray into electrolyzers offers pre-revenue optionality, bolstered by targets in European Union climate policy.
