In the Q4 2020 Investor Letter, Wasatch highlighted a few stocks and Tandem Diabetes Care Inc (NASDAQ:TNDM) is one of them. Tandem Diabetes Care Inc (NASDAQ:TNDM) is a medical device manufacturer. In the last three months, Tandem Diabetes Care Inc (NASDAQ:TNDM) stock gained 3.1% and on February 26th it had a closing price of $95.99. Here is what Wasatch said:

“Another weak stock was Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (TNDM). The company offers insulindelivery systems for people with diabetes. Tandem has experienced robust adoption of its t:slim X2™ insulin pump with Control-IQ technology. Revenues surged 30.6% year-over-year in the company’s most recently reported quarter, and management raised its full-year guidance for 2020. Tandem’s stock sold off on the news, however, as investors appeared to have been expecting even more. From a longer-term standpoint, we believe the company is positioned to benefit from a trend toward continuous glucose monitoring, and our fundamental thesis for owning it remains intact.”
