Blink Charging Co. (BLNK) owns and operates EV charging stations. The company provides residential and commercial EV charging equipment and Blink Network, a cloud-based system that manages the charging stations.

According to the International Energy Agency, the number of EVs on globally will surpass 125 million by 2030. This will necessitate an expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. This represents an enormous opportunity for BLNK as more and more EV drivers seek fast, convenient and reliable charging options. The company is expected to see substantial business growth based on its innovative product offerings, systematic expansion, and growing brand recognition.

Massive growth in EV sales underpinned by supportive government policies and EV charging technology advances have helped BLNK’s stock gain 1,136.6% year-to-date. This impressive performance has helped BLNK earn a “Buy” rating in our proprietary rating system.

Here’s how our proprietary POWR Ratings system evaluates BLNK:

BLNK’s revenue has increased 18% year-over-year to $0.90 million in the third quarter ended September 2020.On December 3rd, the company announced an agreement with JSC Management Group for the deployment of numerous EV charging stations at key Burger King locations across the Northeast. This partnership should provide BLNK with another channel to grow its customer base in conjunction with the burgeoning market for EVs.

On November 23rd, BLNK announced that it has acquired U-Go Charging and its portfolio of EV charging stations. This acquisition is designed to broaden BLNK’s footprint across the United States.

Buy & Hold Grade: C

In terms of the stock’s proximity to its 52-week high, which is a key factor that our Buy & Hold Grade considers, BLNK is not well positioned. The stock is currently trading 34.5% below its 52-week high of $34.67, which it hit on November 23rd.

The company’s net revenue has grown at a CAGR of 19.8% over the past three years. Although BLNK faced challenges with logistics, shipping delays, and a decrease in driving patterns impacting utilization amid the pandemic, it is expected to gain momentum as the economy recovers gradually.

The widespread effect of the novel coronavirus had led to a complete shutdown of transportation activities and disruption in manufacturing operations. However, as economies gradually recover, so too is the global electric vehicle charging stations market, which is expected to witness significant growth consistent with the growing demand for EVs.
