In the Q3 2020 Investor Letter, Horos Asset Management highlighted a few stocks and One Group Hospitality Inc. (NASDAQ:STKS) is one of them. One Group Hospitality Inc. (NASDAQ:STKS) is a global hospitality company. Year-to-date, One Group Hospitality Inc. (NASDAQ:STKS) stock lost 1.7% and on December 30th it had a closing price of $3.52. Here is what Horos Asset Management said:

“As we highlighted in our previous letter, The ONE Group Hospitality (“ONE”) controls, develops, manages and franchises high-end restaurants in the United States. In addition, the company provides turnkey food and beverage solutions to luxury hotels, casinos and other premium locations. In the second quarter, as could be expected, the company’s sales plummeted, ranging from 53% (Kona Grill) to 81% (STK). However, the measures taken before the pandemic by the new management team have allowed ONE to weather the storm and, with the improvement in occupancy in recent weeks and the progressive implementation of food delivery, is even being able to generate cash. Something very commendable and that reinforces our conviction in this investment. In fact, as a result of this “good” business performance the share price rose by 25% in the quarter.

For its part, Tang Palace China Holdings (“Tang Palace”) is a company that owns restaurants and food production and service businesses in China. Tang Palace operates under both its own brands and those of third parties through joint ventures. As in the case of ONE, the Asian company has had a very challenging six months, during which sales fell by around 45%. However, the gradual recovery of the business, as well as the company’s cost efficiency, allows it to continue generating cash flow in such a difficult environment. This, together with a solid financial position, gives Tang Palace the capacity to withstand the uncertain future.”
