Guru Investment Theses on Sensata Technologies Holding N.V.

Meridian Funds Comments on Sensata Technologies - Sep 08, 2014

Sensata Technologies (ST) develops, manufactures and sells sensors and controls. We are attracted to the company’s large growth opportunity, which is driven by increased sensor penetration in industries such as automobiles and general industrial opportunities. We find Sensata’s business model to be attractive given the stability of its revenues, strong operating leverage and excellent management team. During the period, the company benefited from a rebound in European automobile sales and deployed capital in several small accretive acquisitions. We have been trimming the position modestly as the stock approaches our price target.
