Medtronic stock drops toward 8-month low after revenue miss and lowered full-year growth outlook

Economy, Finance

Shares of Medtronic PLC dropped 1.2% toward an eight-month low in premarket trading Tuesday, after the medical technology company beat fiscal second-quarter profit expectations but missed on revenue, citing the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic resurgence and healthcare staffing challenges on medical procedure volumes. Net income for the quarter to Oct. 29 nearly tripled to $1.31 billion, or 97 cents a share, from $489 million, or 36 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Revenue rose 2.6% to $7.85 billion but was below the FactSet consensus of $7.97 billion, while cost of sales fell 7.7%. Cardiovascular revenue rose 3.7% to $2.83 billion, medical surgical revenue increased 0.6% to $2.30 billion, neuroscience revenue fell 0.4% to $1.07 billion and diabetes revenue grew 1.9% to $585 million. For fiscal 2022, the company affirmed its adjusted EPS guidance range of $5.65 to $5.75, but cut its revenue growth outlook to 7% to 8% from 9%. The stock has shed 9.0% over the past three months through Monday, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has slipped 2.8% and the S&P 500 has gained 4.5%.
