Greenlight Capital Fund recently released its Q4 2020 Investor Letter, a copy of which you can download here. The fund posted a return of 5.2% in 2020, underperforming its benchmark, the S&P 500 Index which returned 18.4% in the same period. You should check out Greenlight Capital’s top 5 stock picks for investors to buy right now, which could be the biggest winners of 2021.

In the Q4 2020 Investor Letter, Greenlight Capital highlighted a few stocks and Danimer Scientific Inc. (NYSE:DNMR) is one of them. Danimer Scientific Inc. (NYSE:DNMR) produces a new generation of patented, cost competitive biopolymers. In the last three months, Danimer Scientific Inc. (NYSE:DNMR) stock gained 231.5% and on January 21st it had a closing price of $37.96. Here is what Greenlight Capital said:

"After being introduced to Danimer Scientific (DNMR) in 2014, we invested privately a year ago. DNMR makes Nodax, a biodegradable plastic. Plastics are a global environmental problem, and nobody likes using paper straws. Enter Nodax, which is made by feeding vegetable oil to bacteria and then transforming the fat bacteria into a type of plastic that will decompose even in salt water. The market opportunity is obviously enormous and companies including Pepsi, Walmart and Nestlé have already signed on as customers. At the end of the quarter, DNMR came public by merging with a SPAC, which then soared from $10 to $23.51 per share."
