Just yesterday, CAPS member rknapton succinctly summed up the Vascular outperform case for our community: "Long. Medical instruments company. Nice steady growth. Buying back stock. Cash flow from operating activities growing. Earnings grew 17% on a 9% boost in revenues last quarter. Not bad here at 21x fwd estimates."
