  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "Sensata is a world-leading sensing company; its sensors and data acquisition tools drive efficiency and allow disruption in key applications such as automotive, heavy vehicle and off road, and industrial technology. Working with industries not known for innovation and reticent to change, Sensata brings a strong brand and a reputation as a leading supplier, which we think will position the company well to capture several converging secular trends – hybridization and electrification of autos, autonomous vehicles, and the Industrial IoT (IIoT). As the company continues to increase the number of discrete sensing solutions in its end markets, and develops systems architectures, we believe the value proposition increases, and thus should drive average ASP per unit, as well as the EBIT margin for investors. This should result in accelerating earnings and free cash flow." (8/3/2018)
