This fuel cell stuff is really getting out of hand.

Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) was up 30% on Friday. It's up another 15% today.

FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ:FCEL) was up 18% on Friday, and is up 13% today.

And Ballard Power (NASDAQ:BLDP) is up 15% today after rising "just" 4% on Friday.

Interestingly enough, FuelCell Energy reports today after the close and investors are bracing themselves for fireworks.

According to Bloomberg, the options market is pricing in a 19% move, which actually seems a bit conservative if you ask me!

Plug Power will double the fun with its own report on Thursday.

Ballard reported mixed Q4 results and forward guidance on February 26, and following a very short dip, the stock's done nothing but go up.

If FuelCell disappoints, I think there's a good chance Ballard takes a serious rest and sells off. Plug Power could go down as well.

In fact, Fuel Cell could very well deliver a massive upside surprise and still set off a sell-the-news reaction across the industry, simply because of how much good news has been baked in.

So odds are, we see a breakdown (possibly short-lived) tomorrow, but the stocks are moving so fast that it's hard to take a stand.

Tread very carefully!
