Deutsche Bank Maintains Buy On Stryker Shares, $92 PT
In a research report issued today, Deutsche Bank analyst Kristen Stewart maintained a Buy rating on Stryker Corp (NYSE:SYK) with a price target of $92.00.
Stewart observed, “Stryker’s sales were $2,389M, ahead of Thomson Reuters Consensus at $2,320M and DB $2,324M. The upside relative to the Street and our estimate was across all three business units, particularly MedSurg. Sales were 11.1% on a reported basis, which consisted of a positive benefit of 10.2% from vol/mix and 3.4% from acqs, partially offset by negative 2.3% price and 0.2% FX. Cash EPS of $1.15, $0.01 ahead of Street/DBe at $1.14. Relative to our model, gross margins were weaker though explainable due to MedSurg strength. The lower tax rate helped.”
