"Chart Industries (NASDAQ:GTLS) manufactures highly engineered equipment servicing multiple applications in the energy and industrial gas markets. After cooling off slightly in the previous quarter, the firm’s shares resumed their move higher. We believe the company should benefit from the build-out in liquefied natural gas infrastructure to assist European nations in their efforts to reduce their reliance on Russian natural gas. Additionally, Chart’s long-term fundamentals remain strong as the company continues to be positioned to benefit from clean-energy trends such as hydrogen, carbon capture, and water treatment."
