What are Wall Street analysts saying about Medtronic stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Medtronic stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Escalating costs and expenses continue to weigh on Medtronic’s bottom line. The company’s 2019 guidance remains conservative on apprehension of lackluster CVG and MITG performances. However, all major business groups contributed to solid top-line growth at CER, highlighting sustainability across groups and regions, in addition to displaying successful integration and achievement of synergy targets. Also, gradually stabilizing CRHF market holds promise. The receipt of FDA approval for the DBS therapy as adjunctive treatment to reduce partial-onset seizures buoys optimism. The company is also focusing on geographical diversification of its businesses. Medtronic is highly positive about its foray into the $1 billion standalone CGM market with its Guardian Connect. Overall, in the past three months, Medtronic has outperformed its industry." (8/7/2018)

The impact from Hurricane Maria was revised down to ~$60M from ~$250M, which equates to ~1% in quarterly revenue growth and ~$0.03 in non-GAAP EPS.
