Shares of Chart Industries (NYSE: GTLS), an independent manufacturer of equipment serving energy and industrial gas applications, defied the downtrend in overall markets for a 9.4% gain Thursday after the company released first-quarter financial results that were better than expected. The company posted record orders of $417.2 million, which contributed to a record backlog of $934.1 million, a 29% increase compared to the prior year's first quarter. "We are seeing immediate benefit from our strategic inorganic investments in the order book as reflected in our record backlog, and the momentum in the clean revolution -- clean energy, clean water, clean food, and clean industrial -- is just getting started."
