Seeking Alpha: For Teleflex, Small Things Add Up

If companies like Intuitive Surgical and Heartware live on the "gee whiz" end of the med-tech spectrum, Teleflex (TFX) is on the other end. That is not to say that there isn't meaningful R&D and engineering going into the company's products, but categories like central venous catheters, PICCs, Foley catheters, and endotracheal tubes just don't tend to get growth-oriented med-tech investors all that excited.

Even so, Teleflex has a lot going for it. The company has been a very willing acquirer and increased investments in R&D should lead the way to more innovative new products and market share growth. In the meantime, management is focused on operating improvements that should support double-digit earnings growth. While Teleflex does not look all that cheap on a discounted cash flow basis, the company's above-average growth prospects could maintain healthy valuation multiples.
