AeroVironment has been making headlines lately, and for good reason. The recent availability of its Quantix™ VTOL hybrid drone and the AeroVironment Decision Support System™ (AV DSS) marks a key shift for the application of robotics and AI in the area of precision agriculture. At ROBO Global, we’ve been anticipating the company’s trajectory since the company became an index member at the inception of the index in August 2013. Since that time, AeroVironment has delivered a 26% annualized return, up 267% from August 1, 2013 through March 6, 2019. The stock has risen 66% in the past 12 months alone. As a pure-play company focused on the development and manufacturing of data-analytics-driven unmanned drones, we agree that AeroVironment is heading for the skies, and we think momentum will continue.
