Johnson Matthey: geeking out on hydrogen

By Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit | Sunday 20 September 2020

I believe it was Frank Zappa who once observed that ‘there is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life’.  I seem to talk about stupidity a lot in my writings on various investments (mostly at a specific company level but – naturally – occasionally my own).  Today, however, it is the turn of hydrogen.  Like the complete investment geek sad-o that I am, I spent part of this weekend listening to Friday’s seminar by the FTSE 100’s Johnson Matthey (JMAT), a company I last loved up here , noting that their vision of ‘growth opportunities for our science-led strategy’ is a philosophy and profile that I can sign up for.
