Capstone Continues Order Receipts (CPST)

Capstone Turbine Corp. (NASDAQ: CPST) keeps on delivering new orders.  Now that the company is at the revenue stage, it keeps winning orders.  After today’s close, the company announced that it has received an order for approximately $1.9 million from a multinational oil and gas company.  The order is for Capstone’s C65 Class I Div 2 Microturbine systems for use in resource recovery applications on unmanned oil platforms.

As far as how this pertains to existing comparisons, Capstone generated $9.2 million in revenues last quarter.  It also listed a backlog of some $13.1 million as of the end of 2007.

This is our favorite small cap alternative energy play, and we have been featuring this in our “10 Stocks Under $10” weekly letter since the stock was around $1.20.  Capstone labels itself as the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems.  We noted long ago how Lazard Capital markets gave this one a $2.50 target.  We feel this one has the potential og going up much more than that, and we keep this under our “under $10” screens daily.

Capstone shares closed down 1.2% in normal trading today, but shares are up some 3.8% to $1,63 in after-hours trading.
