Weatherford International plc  WFTIQ

Also catching our eye today, thanks to our longtime reader Mark, is a news release by an OTC company which has just scored a huge contract with PBR (Petrobras), a stock that we have an extensive history covering. It is Brazil’s state run oil conglomerate, and the deal represents the biggest score for WFTIQ to date.

We’ll include a clip of, and link to, the PR below, and what we’re looking at for the stock is the potential for some rapid near-term gains as a response to the big news.

BAAR, Switzerland, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Weatherford International plc (OTC-PINK: WFTIQ) (the “Company” or “Weatherford”), announced the signing of an $87 million contract for fishing and intervention services with Petrolio Brasileiro S.A., which is more commonly known as Brazilian-based multinational corporation Petrobras. The four-year agreement represents the largest fishing contract ever signed by Weatherford. It also constitutes the largest single global award for this scope in the recent past. (>>View Full PR)


FuelCell Energy, Inc. FCEL 

FCEL is a play we’ve also been familiar with in the past, and we tagged in yesterday morning’s premarket watchlist after the company’s big Q3 revenue beat on Friday.

It was a solid choice, with the stock making a nice move on day for us. FCEL traded in a range from .48-.64, marking a move of 33% We’ll be interested to see if it can build off of that momentum and continue to rise up off of its recent relative lows.
