Teleflex stock tumbles toward 8-month low, paces S&P 500 declinersShares of Teleflex Inc. tumbled 10.9% toward an 8-month low in afternoon trading Thursday, enough to pace the S&P 500 decliners, and to put them on track for the biggest one-day percentage selloff since March 2020. Teleflex is a medical technology company, with products in the fields of urology, cardiac and respiratory care and emergency medicine. The company's UroLift System, which the company has recently said was one of its "key growth drivers," is a minimally invasive treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms resulting from benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Meanwhile, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' new anticipates 1% decline in clinical labor pricing for urology. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The stock has now lost 9.7% year to date, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has climbed 13.1% and the S&P 500 has advanced 15.7%.
