Over on CAPS, 1,533 of the 1,554 members who have rated Mindray -- some 99% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star auron77, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community, and Northville.

In late March, auron77 wrote that "there is massive growth potential for this company within China's market." Our CAPS All-Star concludes: "With China being a country where health care is expanding and new technologies are making way to more and more hospitals this company has a large, ever expanding market to serve."

In a pitch from one month earlier, Northville also helps our community keep their minds on Mindray:

Think about this for a second. [Mindray] sells medical devices into China, an underdeveloped country with the world's largest population which has just announced a plan to improve their healthcare system. Even if this was [Mindray's] only market (which it isn't), at a PE in line with the industry average the possibilities for leaving the market in the dust over the next few years are enormous. WOW.
