6 Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Smartphones

Fuel cells have shown some promise at various points in time but they haven’t really taken off yet. All the while, pure-play stocks for hydrogen fuel cells just keep sinking lower and lower. A few years ago we identified 10 fuel cell stocks, of which 4 are traded on U.S. exchanges. We took these 4 fuel cell […]
