Gentherm (THRM) shares rallied 5.7% in the last trading session to close at $73.45. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 9.3% loss over the past four weeks.
Robust demand for the company’s new technologies and flagship offerings is enabling Gentherm to clinch numerous contracts, thereby buoying investors’ confidence in the stock.
Gentherm offers heated seating, climate seating, electronics and cables for the automotive market and is developing thermoelectric generators for converting heat into electricity for applications in automotive, industrial and materials sectors.
The firm’s innovative launches in battery thermal management, comfort solutions, hands-on detection-enabled steering wheel heaters and other electronics are set to further boost the firm’s automotive segment’s prospects. Increasing demand for key products like Blanketrol and Hemotherm is likely to bolster revenues from the medical segment. As such, we expect the stock to have significant upside potential.
