Plug Power Inc (NASDAQ:PLUG) took some lumps in August after high expectations. Deal with Amazon and Wal-Mart had talked about the potential but those deals did not appear on the bottom line and PLUG’s shares took a 5.3% dump for the month.
PLUG has a history of falling flat. The stock rocketed upward in 2014, when the first Wal-Mart deal was announced, but since then the co hasn’t been EBITDA positive, much less been able to report net income. Furthermore, and it escapes a lot of news about PLUG, but in order to ink the deals with Amazon and Wal-Mart, PLUG had to offer up 110M in warrants. Thus, the share count may underestimate the real future dilution if Plug Power reaches any fruition.
