Green Stock Prospects Brighten

 

The prospects for the Burnaby-based company are looking up as the environment is going to be a major focus of the governments across North America and Europe in the coming months.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and US President Joe Biden have emphasized on green economy for the future.

President Biden has vowed to reach out to America’s allies to achieve the UN climate goals, including zero vehicle emissions by 2035. This policy shift would help energy firms that are involved in green technologies. Companies like Ballard and Wrightbus would be the first to benefit from this change.

Ballard stocks were priced at around C$31 per share on Wednesday morning. The stock bounced back a day after the deal was announced, after seeing months of decline, and exacerbated by the pandemic.

Ballard announced on Wednesday the appointment of Paul Dobson as senior VP and CFO of the company after the current administrator Tony Guglielmin retires in March. Ballard, which operates across Europe and Japan, manufactures fuel-cell products for a variety of applications.

The company is also listed on NASDAQ with the same ticker and has a market cap of C$9.4 billion.

 

The above constitutes a preliminary view and any interest in stocks should be evaluated further from an investment point of view.
