In the Q4 2020 Investor Letter, Wasatch highlighted a few stocks and Inspire Medical Systems Inc. (NYSE:INSP) is one of them. Inspire Medical Systems Inc. (NYSE:INSP) operates as a medical technology company. In the last three months, Inspire Medical Systems Inc. (NYSE:INSP) stock gained 26.1% and on February 25th it had a closing price of $226.24. Here is what Wasatch said:
“The strongest contributor to Fund performance for the quarter was Inspire Medical Systems, Inc. (INSP). The company develops minimally invasive solutions for patients with obstructive sleep apnea. Inspire experienced a drop-off in business during early phases of the pandemic as surgeries for sleep apnea and other elective procedures were postponed. However, patient flow has rebounded strongly. Revenues and earnings exceeded expectations in the company’s most recently reported quarter, and management has raised its full-year revenue guidance for 2020. Looking forward, Inspire has significantly expanded reimbursement coverage from U.S. insurers, paving the way for potentially accelerated penetration of its sizable addressable market.”
