DexCom Inc designs, develops and commercializes continuous glucose monitoring systems for ambulatory use by people with diabetes and for use by healthcare providers in the hospital for the treatment of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients.

DexCom Inc designs, develops and commercializes continuous glucose monitoring systems for ambulatory use by people with diabetes and for use by healthcare providers in the hospital for the treatment of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. The Company's product line includes SEVEN PLUS, DexCom G4, DexCom G4 PLATINUM, DexCom Share System and DexCom G5 Mobile. The SEVEN PLUS and G4 PLATINUM systems are more invasive than current self-monitored glucose testing systems, including single-point finger stick devices, and patients may be unwilling to insert a sensor in their body, especially if their current diabetes management involves no more than two finger sticks per day. Moreover, patients may not perceive the benefits of continuous glucose monitoring and may be unwilling to change their current treatment regimens. As compared to the SEVEN PLUS, the G4 PLATINUM offers additional user interface and algorithm enhancements that are intended to make its glucose monitoring function more accurate especially in the hypoglycemic range. To address the in-hospital patient population, it entered into an exclusive agreement with Edwards to develop jointly and market a specific product platform for the in-hospital glucose monitoring market, with an initial focus on the development of an intravenous sensor specifically for the critical care market. Its products also shows how fast the body's glucose levels are changing. It is designed to help avoid highs and lows and to help keep the glucose between the lines of the target zones. Its competitors include Roche Disetronic, Roche Diagnostics, LifeScan, Inc, Johnson & Johnson, the MediSense and Abbott Laboratories, and Bayer Corporatio. Its products are medical devices subject to extensive and ongoing regulation by the FDA and regulatory bodies in other countries.

Guru Investment Theses on DexCom Inc

Baron Funds Comments on DexCom Inc. - Jan 14, 2016

Another health care holding, DexCom, Inc., (NASDAQ:DXCM) sells a continuous glucose monitoring system for diabetics. Although this is an unusual investment for the portfolio because of its extended trading multiple, we think DexCom’s fundamentals justify our investment. Over the last three years, DexCom has launched a series of new products driving a dramatic acceleration in revenue growth. We believe the company’s new product pipeline remains robust and will lead to further adoption among the growing population of diabetics.

Baron Funds Comments on DexCom Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

DexCom, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXCM) sells a continuous glucose monitoring device for insulin dependent diabetes. DexCom reported very strong results. Revenues grew 55% in the quarter, and the company reiterated guidance for continued exceptional growth. The company launched its “share” system, which allows parents or spouses to receive the users’ blood glucose data from the users’ handheld devices, an important new feature. And they filed for approval of their next generation offering that will transmit data directly to a smartphone, eliminating the need to carry a receiver. Strong new patient starts, more accurate and feature rich products, and an expanding addressable market make for a company that, we believe, can grow rapidly for a considerable time go forward.
