When a company falls over 10% since the release of earnings, it normally means that the news wasn't good at all.

By lowering cash costs and improving its gross margins to 25% -- a figure that other fuel cell-oriented companies like FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ: FCEL  ) and Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG  ) are a far ways off from achieving -- it was able to post its closest EBITDA break-even numbers to date.

But of course shares are down for a reason, and there were some less encouraging signs in this earnings report as well. Find out what is the most concerning issue by tuning into the video below.
