3 Reasons to Buy Clean Energy Fuels

Clean Energy Fuels (Nasdaq: CLNE  ) is a company that we here at the Fool have been following for some time now. Based on our analysis, we see several valid reasons why investors should be excited about this stock:

  1. Company management, led by its co-founders T. Boone Pickens and Andrew Littlefair, possesses a wealth of knowledge across the energy sector in both public and private practice.
  2. The success of key partnerships is critical to Clean Energy Fuel's future. In the recent past they have partnered with such heavyweights as Cummins (NYSE: CMI  ) , Westport Innovations (Nasdaq: WPRT  ) , Navistar International (NYSE: NAV  ) and Honda Motors
  3. With 530 fleet customers in the United States already, Clean Energy Fuels has a great base to work from as it continues to ramp up its "America's Natural Gas Highway" initiative over 2012 and 2013. 

Take a look at the video below for more detailed descriptions of these three highlights.

    IS just a management company .It owns very few station.So at the end of their contracts they must be the lowest bidder again

    It grew by issuing stock and borrowing.Neither is possible any more because all they ever do is lose money

    The stock currently has not gone up since the start

    yet Boone and management have rewarded them selfs with 100 of millions of dollars in bonuses

    It in their charter .They may do so with out share holder approval

    They have money in the bank

    The end of next year they will be out of money

    So all new contracts will require little money

    The are forced to lease every thing since they can not borrow

    If this sounds like a good company than listen to MF

    You would at least thought they would have looked at this.Any one studying the company has

    to see it only set up to reward Boone and management and rob share holders

    So I sure would not follow this peoples advice

    Look at its stock price and divide by the number of stations Its in the many millions per station and all they have is contracts.and they have been wrong on this stock for a long time

    I have to agree with robertinvestor.

    I've just started research after waiting for CLNE to drop into a price range that I found acceptable.B The video hit the themes, which are admirable, and which will earn SOME company big $$. ut, so far, I just don't yet see where CLNE has made their plan clear -- at least in specific terms.

    I note that it held up better than most during the sharp market pullback of the last couple days. I'm starting a small position -- being fully prepared to buy more on dips. For now, it is purely a speculative holding.

    I do not understand how you can make money from a stock that continues to drop durring good markets and bad. I bought clne when it was first recommended and have seen my invest ment cut in half. Even if it turns arround it may be years before I can recoop my initial investment must less make a profit. I think it is time to cut my losses and move on.

    Can some one give me a reason not to?
