Will Natural Gas Be Taking Over Your Highways?

This segment is from Tuesday's edition of "Digging for Value," in which sector analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman discuss energy and materials news with host Alison Southwick. The twice-weekly show can be viewed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It can also be found on Twitter, along with our extended coverage of the energy and materials sectors @TMFEnergy .

Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ: CLNE  ) and GE Capital agreed this week to finance future natural gas truck purchases, giving an excellent option for smaller trucking companies to substitute diesel trucks with cleaner-burning natural-gas-powered fleets.

It is obvious this agreement helps Clean Energy Fuels, as the trucks will sign agreements to use the companies refueling stations throughout North America, but other winners are Westport Innovations  (NASDAQ: WPRT  ) and Cummins  (NYSE: CMI  ) , as both are innovators in natural gas powered engines.

    As i suggested in another comment, if WPRT can get profitable in 3 years, and continue with a reasonable growth of just 18% the folowing several years, then its fair value price today would already be 50% above current market price. (This is based on my analysis using Fair Value with Market Impact app for iPad.). So if analyst projections are basically decent, which i think are, then it is a reasonable buy here at ca. $24.60. Take 5% of your cash and give it a 'go'.
