Baron Funds, an asset management firm, published its “Baron Health Care Fund” second quarter 2021 investor letter – a copy of which can be downloaded here. A return of 11.43% was delivered by the fund’s institutional shares for the Q2 of 2021, outperforming both its S&P 500 and Russell 3000 Health Care benchmarks that delivered 8.55% and 8.16% returns respectively for the same period. You can take a look at the fund’s top 5 holdings to have an idea about their top bets for 2021.
In the Q2 2021 investor letter of Baron Funds, the fund mentioned Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) and discussed its stance on the firm. Insulet Corporation is an Acton, Massachusetts-based medical device company with a $19.8 billion market capitalization. PODD delivered a 12.49% return since the beginning of the year, while its 12-month returns are up by 42.27%. The stock closed at $287.57 per share on August 13, 2021.
Here is what Baron Funds has to say about Insulet Corporation in its Q2 2021 investor letter:
"We added to our position in Insulet Corp., which sells the OmniPod insulin pump for people with diabetes who require insulin. We think the OmniPod pump has advantages over durable pumps, including a better form factor without tubing, easier patient access through the pharmacy channel (vs. the DME channel), a superior pay-as-you-go model (no upfront cost vs. upfront 4-year contracts), and broader reimbursement in the Type 2 diabetes population. The company expects to receive FDA approval of the OmniPod 5 soon, which will be the first and only wearable, tubeless automated insulin delivery device. The wearable OmniPod 5 will communicate with the DexCom continuous glucose monitoring system, it will have an adaptive algorithm built in, and an app will allow users to control the system from a smartphone. We think the OmniPod 5 will catalyze adoption in the large and underpenetrated global market for patients with diabetes who require insulin."
Based on our calculations, Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) was not able to clinch a spot in our list of the 30 Most Popular Stocks Among Hedge Funds. PODD was in 39 hedge fund portfolios at the end of the first quarter of 2021, compared to 41 funds in the fourth quarter of 2020. Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) delivered a 23.73% return in the past 3 months.
Hedge funds’ reputation as shrewd investors has been tarnished in the last decade as their hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. Our research has shown that hedge funds’ small-cap stock picks managed to beat the market by double digits annually between 1999 and 2016, but the margin of outperformance has been declining in recent years. Nevertheless, we were still able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by 115 percentage points since March 2017 (see the details here). We were also able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that underperformed the market by 10 percentage points annually between 2006 and 2017. Interestingly the margin of underperformance of these stocks has been increasing in recent years. Investors who are long the market and short these stocks would have returned more than 27% annually between 2015 and 2017. We have been tracking and sharing the list of these stocks since February 2017 in our quarterly newsletter.

Only two out of a box of 10 inserted cannula under the skin. The battery sounds weak. 8 wasted pods only to have 2 actually insert the cannula under the skin. The cannula is ejected from the pods but needle and cannula never insert. And when deliveries insulin (?) it never delivers. It never leaks it does nothing but click like it’s delivering. Wasted money on pods and wasting tons of insulin. Highly disappointed. Update: very quick response from seller who issued a replacement box and tracking number immediately. May have just been a bad batch with weak batteries. I’d like to thank him so much for reaching out immediately and rectifying the issue. Thank you.

Diabetes Tech – Try Before You Buy!

Want to try an insulin pump, in place of daily insulin injections? Insulet is offering its Omnipod DASH for 30 days to new customers at no cost. The Pod can be prescribed virtually and picked up at your pharmacy
For many people with diabetes, insulin pumps can be used to reduce the daily challenges of injecting insulin. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual trainings help people learn to use their new pumps. In the past, people had to go through the durable medical equipment process to get an insulin pump, which requires approval and a statement of medical necessity from your healthcare team. Now, you can get some pumps, like Omnipod, more quickly and conveniently through your pharmacy, with just a prescription. Because the pharmacy route is easier – especially during COVID-19 – Insulet is offering a free 30-day trial of its Omnipod DASH insulin management system.
What is Omnipod DASH?
Omnipod DASH has two parts: an insulin “Pod” and a Personal Diabetes Manager (or PDM). The Pod and the PDM work together to deliver the insulin that you need.
The Pod is a small, tubeless insulin “patch” pump worn on your body. The Pod contains enough insulin for three days of non-stop and on-demand basal (long-acting) and bolus (mealtime) insulin. When the three days are up, you take the Pod off and throw it away.
The PDM is a wireless Bluetooth-connected device that you can use to tell your Pod how much insulin to deliver. The PDM can also send insulin data to a nearby smartphone for additional monitoring, and it can be uploaded to get a history of your diabetes management.
Learn more about the Omnipod DASH system here.
Can you use your CGM with the Omnipod DASH?
Continuous glucose monitoring devices – or CGMs, which provide real-time, 24/7 glucose readings – do not currently integrate with the Omnipod DASH system (for automated insulin delivery). However, you can use the two devices to reduce both your insulin injections and multiple daily fingersticks – since the Pod is delivering your insulin and the CGM is measuring your glucose. The CGM data will help determine how much bolus insulin to deliver using a dose calculator included on the PDM. For more on future automated insulin delivery with the Omnipod, read about the upcoming Omnipod 5.
What else do I need to know about Omnipod DASH?
With the free 30-day trial, there is no commitment to continue using the pump or the insulin management system. However, if you like Omnipod DASH, you can continue to get it from your pharmacy. Because Omnipod is a disposable patch pump, there is no initial cost for a tubed insulin pump (which can often be expensive); instead, you’ll pay for the patch pumps every month, with an additional fee for the PDM. The cost of the Omnipod DASH system will depend on your health insurance plan and can be as low as $40 per month.
Who’s not eligible for the Omnipod DASH free trial?
You are not eligible for the free 30-day trial if you have Medicare, Medicaid, or other federal health insurance, if you are a member of Kaiser Permanente or United Health Care, or if you are already an Omnipod customer. Click here to get to the Omnipod website to request your free 30-day trial.
