George Soros- Score!: Westport Innovations Initiated at 'Overweight' By Morgan Stanley (WPRT)

The stock set another all-time high this morning at $45.50, it is currently at $44.29, up 47 cents
I'm beginning to feel a bit of altitude sickness. This is primarily a leveraged play on lower natgas prices with some bonus P/E expansion based on Mr. Soros' connections with the Obama administration.
The problem is there is still no E for the P/E.

Should either the Senate or House versions of the T. Boone Pickens championed NatGas Acts get a hearing the stock would trade higher but until then, I'm feeling a bit woozy.

If Goldman intiates, out and short, In the meantime tight stops orlightening up into upgrades sounds like a plan, this thing can drop 10% in a day.

From Benzinga:
Morgan Stanley initiates its coverage on Westport Innovations with an Overweight rating and a price target of $51 driven the the company's first-mover advantage as a natural gas play.

Morgan Stanley notes, "Westport is strategically positioned to capitalize on the increasingly compelling value proposition of natural gas vehicles. We believe revenues will double in two years and triple in three. With multiple catalysts ahead, we see the stock 25% higher by year end and initiate at Overweight."...
Yesterday Canaccord Genuity reiterated a “hold”
Back on Feb. 2 Jeffries bumped their price target to $45.
