Is Wright Medical Back on Track?

Wright Medical hasn’t enjoyed the smoothest ride over the past 15 years, a stretch that included a spin-out, debt problems, and a buyout, as well as an IPO.

Nowhere is this more true than in orthopedic devices. Now, some investors are finding opportunities in mid-sized companies by using them as platforms to build more substantial plays. The goal isn't market leadership, but value creation for shareholders, which can be done on a more modest scale.
