Richie Capital Group, in their Q1 2021 investor letter, mentioned SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SEDG) and shared their insights on the company. SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. is an California-based photovoltaics company that currently has a $13.8 billion market capitalization. Since the beginning of the year, SEDG delivered a -15.57% return, while its 12-month are impressively up by 173.04%. As of April 13, 2021, the stock closed at $269.44 per share.

Here is what Richie Capital Group has to say about SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. in their Q1 2021 investor letter:

"Our biggest detractors for the quarter included SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG – down 11.2%) – The Smart Energy solar company declined during the quarter along with most other solar energy stocks due to concerns over higher interest rates. Higher interest rates will make it more expensive for businesses and consumers to borrow money for residential and commercial solar projects. We expect interest rates to be somewhat of a headwind for years to come. However, the stronger underlying trends are in their favor. We expect SEDG to be a net winner from the Biden Administration’s infrastructure plan which focuses on Clean Energy."
