Merion Road Capital Management, in their Q1 2021 investor letter, mentioned Tuesday Morning Corporation (NYSE: TUEM) and shared their insights on the company. Tuesday Morning Corporation is a Dallas, Texas-based retail company that currently has a $141.1 million market capitalization.

Here is what Merion Road Capital Management has to say about Tuesday Morning Corporation in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

"It is also worth revisiting Tuesday Morning (“TUEM”), which I discussed in my Q3 2020 letter. In January the company reemerged from bankruptcy. As part of the plan, they raised equity and offered existing shareholders the right to purchase shares at $1.10. With the stock trading well north of that figure, I exercised our rights while tactically selling shares to maintain our target exposure, thus capturing the spread. From day one I purposely kept TUEM a small position given its risk profile, but it has worked out wonderfully as we made multiples of our investment."
