Over on CAPS, some 95% of the 227 All-Star members who have rated Mindray believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These All-Star bulls include cptsintl and pennysplants, both of whom are ranked in the top 5% of our community.

In May, cptsintl wrote that Mindray is "Quickly developing into one of the largest medical technology companies in World. Based in China, its potential is remarkable."

An earlier pitch from pennysplants shares that sentiment, indicating that some significant progress is just beginning to become visible:

[Competitive] advantages, dedication to R&D, BOTH Chinese and international markets / sales force, stellar management (all things considered), good balance sheet/financial health, and in a sector which is growing by leaps and bounds (tho margins may decline)... Yes, things may stagnate here for a while during the DataScope integration, but I can wait til '09 for increased earnings and cross-selling to become accretive. Analysts are saying 40-45% annual eps growth. I'd settle for 25% with a company of this quality and in this sector.
