In the Q4 2020 Investor Letter, Silver Ring Value Partners’ highlighted a few stocks and O-I Glass Inc. (NYSE:OI) is one of them. O-I Glass Inc. (NYSE:OI) is a glass container manufacturing company. In the last three months, O-I Glass Inc. (NYSE:OI) stock gained 17.4% and on January 19th it had a closing price of $12.96. Here is what Silver Ring Value Partners’ said:

“Business Vision in 5 Years: Glass containers have held their share of the market, resulting in the company’s business being moderately larger in U.S. and the EU and substantially larger in Latin America. The company’s MAGMA technology succeeded and allowed the business to grow in a more capital-efficient manner. Revenue growth has allowed margins to expand modestly. The company has resolved its outstanding asbestos issues for a sum consistent with management’s estimates.

What Can Prevent It From Getting There:

• Aluminum takes a large amount of share from glass containers

• The company loses share in the EU due to competitors out-innovating it and the company underinvesting in its business

• Latin American growth slows or reverses due to a prolonged recession

• Asbestos claims are not settled in federal courts or are settled for a very large amount relative to management’s projections.”
