Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of Maxwell Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:MXWL) from a sell rating to a hold rating in a research report sent to investors on Tuesday morning.

According to Zacks, “Maxwell leads the growing ultracapacitor market and benefits from increasing demand for utility infrastructure, renewable energy, public transportation, and space programs. It has completed restructuring initiatives, focusing on high-growth opportunities, selling non-core assets, consolidating the U.S. manufacturing units and reducing operating costs by lowering the headcount. However, the company’s dependence on a limited number of customers and vertical markets remains a major challenge. Meanwhile, its share price has underperformed the Zacks Categorized Electronics-Miscellaneous Components industry price over the last one year due to uncertainty associated with the China bus market as well as short-term changes in the Chinese government's deployment strategy for wind turbines, which is affecting Maxwell’s wind market revenues.”
