In the Q3 2020 Investor Letter, Wasatch highlighted a few stocks and Silk Road Medical Inc (NASDAQ:SILK) is one of them. Silk Road Medical Inc (NASDAQ:SILK) produces and distributes surgical equipment. Year-to-date, Silk Road Medical Inc (NASDAQ:SILK) stock gained 60.3% and on December 24th it had a closing price of $64.71. Here is what Wasatch said:
“Silk Road Medical, Inc. (SILK) was also a top contributor. The company offers implantable devices for the treatment of carotid-artery disease. Investors reacted positively to increases in the number of surgeries using Silk Road’s products—from approximately 385 in April to 685 in May and 900 in June. Known as transcarotid artery revascularization, Silk Road’s innovative, minimally invasive procedure is likely, in our view, to continue gaining market share at the expense of open surgery and transfemoral stenting, and to eventually become the new standard of care.”
