Story Highlights

Medtronic shares are on the rise today after investors were impressed with the company’s Q3 outperformance and full-year guidance boost.

Shares of medical device maker Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) are ticking nearly 6% higher today after the company delivered a better-than-expected set of numbers for the third quarter. With a year-over-year increase of 4.7%, revenue of $8.09 billion exceeded estimates by $139 million. Further, EPS of $1.30 came in ahead of expectations by $0.04.

Additionally, gains in the Surgical & Endoscopy (SE) and Patient Monitoring & Respiratory Interventions (PMRI) divisions contributed to a 3.9% increase in Medical Surgical revenues.

Buoyed by this uptick, Medtronic raised its financial outlook for Fiscal Year 2024. Revenue for the year is anticipated to grow by 4.75% to 5% versus the prior growth expectation of 4.75%. EPS for the year is seen landing in the range of $5.19 to $5.21. Medtronic previously estimated EPS for the full year between $5.13 and $5.19.
