Todd Wenning of Ensemble Capital Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on Masimo (US: MASI) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2020.
Masimo is a medical technology company best known for its highly accurate pulse oximetry sensors used in critical care settings. Masimo’s mission is to improve patient outcomes while reducing system-wide costs, which is a rare strategy in the healthcare industry.
Most medical device companies are healthcare companies that use technology and are thus motivated to maintain the status quo of adding cost to the system. Masimo inverts this and is a technology company that focuses on healthcare. As such, Masimo starts with first principles when solving problems and creates solutions that are win-win-win for hospitals, medical professionals, and patients.
