  • But Raymond James downgraded Medtronic to Market Perform from an Outperform rating. 
  • The analyst notes that the valuation has been their core thesis this year, and this factor still holds, but the implied F2H23 ramp lowers confidence.
  • According to the analyst, supply chain dynamics have disrupted MDT’s growth more than peers, and they think MDT will take longer to regain momentum. 
  • Raymond James is increasingly concerned that a higher level of investment is needed to drive a mid-single-digit revenue growth profile. 
  • Price Action: MDT shares are down 0.91% at $89.41 on the last check Wednesday.
