Conceptus ( CPTS)

Company Profile: Conceptus develops, manufactures and markets the Essure permanent birth control system, an innovative and proprietary medical device for women.

Current Share Price: $13.81 (Jan. 4)

Potential Upside: 67% based on a price target of $23

Barrington's Take: Conceptus is the last of the six new additions to Barrington's Best Ideas List for 2011 as the company "offers investors an appealing long-term growth story and is trading at an attractive valuation, in our view." The firm notes the success of Conceptus' Essure permanent birth control solution, which has a five-year effectiveness rate of 99.74%.

"We believe Essure is the best device with the most cost effective, efficacious and safe solution on or near to market with improving fourth and fifth generation devices," Barrington wrote. "Essure has not had a pregnancy from its clinical trial after more than five years of follow-up."
