ITM Power Shares Have Fallen 36.2% Since January on Sour Mood, Will They Keep Falling?

Updated: 24 Mar 2021

Shares of ITM Power plc (LON: ITM) have fallen 36.2% since January as some analysts turned bearish on the company since it is valued at £2.74 billion despite not generating any income in the past.

The company, which manufactures hydrogen electrolysers, recently opened a gigafactory in Sheffield with the capacity to manufacture up to 1,000 megawatts worth of ITM Power products each year.

Things are looking up for the company. It was recently recruiting about 80 engineers to work at its gigafactory with analysts at J.P.Morgan, expecting the company to turn earnings positive by the 2023 full year.

J.P.Morgan recently begun covering the company with their first research note clarifying that the global demand for hydrogen electrolysers is set to grow significantly up to 2030, with ITM Power being well-positioned to capitalise on this trend.

From a fundamental point of view, ITM Power is overvalued given that its 2020 revenues were a meagre £5.4 million, but that was before the gigafactory went online.

ITM Power rallied higher towards the end of last year and into January, forming the now-familiar parabolic shape followed by the current downtrend.

The shares seem to have hit a resistance level earlier this month, they bounced from this level but are now heading lower, and I’ll be interested to see if the level holds in future, which could mean that the trend is about to reverse.

A trend reversal here will provide a great buying opportunity for short-term traders who want to profit from moves in either direction.
