Roubaix Capital, in their Q4 2020 Investor Letter, said that GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) should benefit from the consumer rebound. GoPro, Inc. is a technology company that currently has a $1.1 billion market cap. For the past 3 months, GPRO delivered a 7.83% return and settled at $7.91 per share at the closing of February 16th.

Here is what Roubaix Capital has to say about GoPro, Inc. in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

“Companies like GoPro (GPRO) should benefit from the consumer rebound, but also have their own unique drivers of value over the next 2+ years. In the case of GPRO, the company launched its newest action camera, the GoPro9, under the umbrella of a new business model. The company offers a discount on the camera when customers purchase a subscription agreement that comes with additional services and benefits. The uptake of the subscription has been strong to date and offers the company a line of sight to a higher margin and more predictable revenue stream. The stock’s low double digit earnings multiple remains undemanding. We have seen this type of transformation play out in numerous situations in software, hardware and even retail companies such as RH. We see GPRO following suit and expect a return to travel later this year to be another reason for consumers to buy a new camera as they head back out on vacation.”
