To butcher that timeless tagline from Timex, 2020 has been the year when some stocks took a licking while others kept on ticking. But in the case of Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG), that terrific ticking is louder than a time bomb. In fact, PLUG stock has smashed the ceiling with so much force — it’s up more than 400% this year — you might find yourself tempted to skip “Should I buy?” and go straight to “How much should I buy?”
Yes, it’s been quite the bull run for a company virtually unknown when the year began. What’s more, it produces hydrogen fuel cell systems, not the kind of item to make you drop everything and head for the closest e-commerce site. But exciting for investors?

Now here’s where it gets…kinda weird. As fellow InvestorPlace writer Josh Enomoto has pointed out, PLUG stock has a fascinating correlation to shares in Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). I’ll let Josh explain, as this sort of stuff often escapes me: “From the beginning of this year, Plug and Tesla shares have recorded a 97% correlation coefficient.” By the way, that’s held true for the entire year, dipping just a hair these past few weeks to 96%.

Hi, John Jagerson here.
I’m a senior analyst here at InvestorPlace.
If you haven’t yet seen this…
For a short time, I’m sharing the details on a little-known strategy that allows you receive instant cash upfront — anywhere from $240 to $2,475 per trade — every single time you make a simple transaction in a brokerage account.
Just take a look at some of the recent upfront cash payouts you could have received…
All in a few minutes or less — and all without buying a single share upfront:

Of course, all investments carry risk, and past performance never indicates future returns…
But as you’ll see, learning this simple strategy actually LOWERS your risk…
It allows you to make steady income at the same time — every weekday for a few minutes a day if you want to… and no matter what the market is doing.

P.S. After you’ve watched the short video (just 9 minutes, 12 seconds), if you’re interested in learning how this “instant income” strategy works, you can try it out for just $7.
Why so cheap? Well, you have the potential to make thousands of dollars per month in income you are currently missing out on… and I think everyone should have the chance to try this strategy themselves, without risking a lot of money upfront. Keep in mind: This huge discount will probably not be available for long. So go here now to get the details.
