Key Updates from the Industrial Sector Last Week ## Honeywell in collaboration with Optoro On January 10, 2019, Honeywell (HON) announced that it plans to collaborate with Optoro. As a part of this collaboration, Honeywell’s Mobility Edge mobile computers will use Optoro’s cloud-based data-driven solution to help retailers better manage returned purchases and excess inventory. Optoro’s proprietary algorithms help to determine how to dispose of a returned item to get maximum value. HON didn’t disclose the financial aspects of this collaboration. The latest data from the National Retail Federation suggests that returns from consumers have been growing every year, and retailers estimate that more than 10% of their annual sales are returned. Peter Howes, Honeywell’s president for Productivity Products business, said, “Reverse logistics is becoming a complex challenge for retailers as they need to move returned goods within the supply chain as quickly as possible to reduce bottom-line impact. With Optoro running on our Mobility Edge Platform devices, retailers can quickly connect returns with best available opportunities to turn the products into revenue.” ## Stock price movement Honeywell stock gained 2.0% and closed at $137.36 for the week ending January 11, 2019. The gains helped HON to narrow its 100-day moving average gap. The stock traded 6.7% below the 100-day moving average price of $147.19.
