9. Plug Power: Up 104%

Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG) has been in the fuel cell for the material handling and stationary power markets. Its shares have surged in 2017, after striking a pact with Amazon.com brought the potentiality of an equity investment, but Plug Power had a deal with Wal-Mart years ago too.
