Market shocker: this renewable energy stock is set to soar beyond expectations

Green gold: The renewable energy stock setting new records for investors
Nemanja Curcic

While the start of 2023 promised great returns for investments in renewable energy stocks, its end disappointed many. The plunge was deep enough to be called a renewables bubble, especially in Europe. 

The rest of the world wasn’t spared either, with the value of iShares Global Clean Energy ETF (NASDAQ: ICLN) plunging from $19.88 in January 2023 to $14.80 in January 2024, a drop of 25.6% in the ETF that reflects the global renewable energy market performance.

However, one component of that index might shock the market by skipping the decline and soaring beyond expectations. The renewable energy stock in question is REX American Resources Corp. (NYSE: REX), a leading American company producing ethanol, a renewable, clean fuel, and its by-products.

REX American Resources financial performance

In its Q3 2023 financial report, REX reported net sales and revenue of $221.1 million, compared to $220.3 million for the same period the previous year, with a 10.4% increase in ethanol sold, offset slightly by lower commodity prices.

The gross profit for the period increased to $39.3 million from $9.3 million for the same period in 2022, which is a whopping 323.7% increase. Consequently, gross income was $41.3 million, compared with $6.1 million in the comparable year-ago period.

The company’s CEO, Zafar Rizvi, stated in the report that the company achieved the highest quarterly net income and EPS results in the company’s 39-year history, with the substantial income increase stemming from an increase in efficiency and capitalization on favorable market conditions.

Ahead of the upcoming fiscal period, analysts expected REX to achieve an EPS of $0.79. However, the current performance shows that this figure could almost double, highlighting the value investors in this renewable energy stock could get in returns.

Looking forward: What is the price prediction for REX stock?

REX American Resources has produced sustainable and resilient growth in the face of the stark overall decline of the renewable energy market. 

Maintaining robust financials while simultaneously expanding its ethanol production capacities indicates that REX could grow even further and surprise the growing number of naysayers who discourage ESG investments on the grounds of recent stock price dips.
