Come on, Clean Energy's quarter wasn't that bad

Shares were taking it on the chin Friday as investors react to the company's earnings report.

By Motley Fool Investor Beat Feb 28, 2014 5:57PM
Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE) reported fourth-quarter and full-year earnings after the bell Thursday, and shares were being punished in Friday trading.

Motley Fool analyst Sara Hov explains that it's likely an overreaction. The year-ago quarter benefited from a one-time bump in top-line growth, so the most recent quarter was up against a tough comparison. Overall, revenue and volumes were positive, so Sara considers it a good quarter. Additionally, Clean Energy Fuels is pursuing major contracts both domestically and abroad.
Clean Energy Fuels has dramatically underperformed the broader market in the past year, but Sara believes the long-term bull thesis for the company remains intact.Image: Broken-Pencil (© Christian Zachariasen/Jupiterimages)
