Roubaix Capital, in their Q4 2020 Investor Letter, said that Stoneridge, Inc. (NYSE: SRI) should also benefit from the post pandemic rise of the economy. Stoneridge, Inc. is an engineered electrical and electronic products designer and manufacturer that currently has a $803.6 million market cap. For the past 3 months, SRI delivered a 9.53% return and settled at $29.76 per share at the closing of February 16th.

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

“Stoneridge (SRI) should also benefit from the strengthening economic outlook and the application of technology to improve efficiency. On the first point, SRI supplies components and systems into the commercial vehicle and automotive markets. Both markets are poised to improve in 2021 after varying degrees of headwinds in 2020. On the technology side, SRI’s MirrorEye product has promising applications for commercial truck owners. The product directly improves driver visibility which should reduce accidents, and thereby insurance premiums from costly insurance claims. Further, since the product replaces physical side mirrors it improves aerodynamics. This cuts fuel costs and creates another source of saving and productivity for vehicle operators. The pandemic delayed adoption in 2020, but 2021 is poised to be a breakout year for this company.”
