TNDM is poised to take meaningful share of this $1.2 bn U.S. market in our view, but the stock has appreciated almost 70% since its recent IPO and now trades at an EV/sales multiple of 10.3x our 2014 # and 6.3x our 2015 estimate. Our $27 PO assumes TNDM trades at about 6.9x 2015 EV/sales, a premium to patch pump player PODD and a discount to DXCM. Our Neutral rating is due entirely to TNDM’s recent run up and the early stage of its commercial development.”
