Medtronic 2Q profit surges, revenue misses expectations
NEW YORK (AP) — Medtronic PLC's fiscal second-quarter profit more than doubled on higher sales of its heart and surgical devices. But revenue fell short of Wall Street expectations, helping to drag shares lower.
The Dublin-based company's stock fell more than 10 percent in midday trading Tuesday.
Medtronic PLC is preparing to invest another $20 million in Israeli med-tech company Mazor Robotics, which is expected on Tuesday to announce a new robotically assisted spine-surgery system called Mazor X.
Analysts say physician interest in robotically assisted surgical tools is steadily growing, and Medtronic seems to be positioning itself to capitalize on the trend — and potentially accelerate it — if it takes off.
