Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Own Right Now


Innovation can still produce results even in a sluggish U.S. spine market, as seen with the ongoing growth at companies like K2M (KTWO) and Globus (GMED). In the case of K2M, the story is still about the company’s disruptive product development in degenerative and complex spine, supported by a strong platform in 3D-printed implants. With that, the shares have done okay since my last update – rising close to 10%, which is not as good as Globus, but pretty good next to other med-techs in the spine space like Stryker (SYK) and NuVasive (NUVA).


I continue to believe that K2M shares are undervalued. The company’s liquidity and cash flow situation is not ideal, but spending money on product development and competitive rep hires to support those product launches makes sense, and I believe the company will get to double-digit FCF margins within five years. With that, I’d consider buying into the mid-$20s.

Ongoing Product-Led Share Growth

Although the past few quarters have not been strong for the U.S. spine market as a whole, K2M is outgrowing the market on the back of share-taking new products/platforms like Yukon OCT (complex), Everest MI (MIS, degenerative) and Cascadia 3D (MIS, degenerative). Revenue rose 8% in the first quarter after rising 9% in the fourth quarter, with good growth in complex in both periods. While MIS slowed a bit in the first quarter (to around 6% yoy growth), the year-ago comp was difficult. Degenerative actually accelerated from the fourth quarter, with 9% yoy growth.
