Although Q4 sales were somewhat disappointing shares of Recursion rose 23.26% in the month after Nvidia disclosed a stake in the company.

  • FiscalNote (NOTE), provides AI driven data gathering solutions for legislation analysis, visualization, and information processing regarding the assessment of government risks. Shares of the company rose 18.55% during the month an although the stock has been flat for many months it is expected that there will be a lot of activity in this stock as elections approach.

Some other ideas that might be helpful within the Robotics and Automation sector:


  • Intuitive Machines (LUNR), the maker of the Odysseus robotics moon lander saw shares climb 59.52% as the lander landed on the moon and sent data back to earth. It was the first landing by the United States in 50 years. With contracts from SpaceX and Nasa along with plans for Mars continue Revenues are projected to go from $71.9M in 2023 to $483.7M by the end of 2025.

Industrial Robotics and Automation:

  • Regal Rexnord (RRX), is an industrial automation company who designs, manufactures, and sells electric motors and controls.

  • Nano Dimension NNDM), is a 3D printing company. The Company focuses on the research and development of 3D printed electronics that includes a printer for multilayer printed circuit boards, and the development of nanotechnology based inks.
