Guidepoint Qsight Models: Medtronic Update


by Robert Conklin, Vice President of Sales, Guidepoint Data

With the addition of Medtronic (“MDT”) to our Guidepoint Qsight data-sets, we now have 16 company models available across the MedTech space. This timely data, gathered from over 2,000 medical facilities, offers clients new quantitative insights into Medtronic’s sales performance. We have updated our MDT projection results, which you will see below.


As you know, MDT reported their FY1Q20 earnings with U.S. sales coming in above sell-side consensus, which led to the stock opening up +4.97% as of 10:30AM ET last Tuesday, August 20th.



While sell-side estimates suggested MDT’s U.S. sales growth would be weaker than prior quarters, Qsight predicted a different story for 2Q19. Starting in July 2019, Qsight’s data and projection methodology began signaling potential strength with projected sales growth trending above consensus estimates. On August 19th, Qsight’s final projection for MDT implied a beat compared to consensus and proved to be accurate. See below for a recap:
