Crescent Fund's Steven Romick Comments on CareFusion

July 25, 2012 | About:

From the second quarter commentary of Crescent Fund's Steven Romick:

CareFusion We recently made an investment in CareFusion (CFN), a leading medical technology company serving hospitals in the United States and abroad. In this country, it has dominant market positions in a majority of its businesses. CFN's products and services are particularly attractive because they help lower hospitals' operating costs. With new, highly motivated and experienced management at the helm, we believe CFN could improve its R&D productivity and grow international sales at a faster rate. This should translate into better long-term EPS growth. Management's actions to date should increase the company's operating margin to a level more commensurate with its strong share position and in line with similarly positioned medical device companies. The company is trading at ~10x cash earnings and it has minimal net debt leverage, so we find CFN to be an attractive investment.
