Our Take

Masimo’s impressive preliminary full-year performance projections raise our optimism. The company had also announced Dual SET Pulse Oximetry for Root — a highly versatile patient monitoring and connectivity hub — in November 2021. The first application of Dual SET Oximetry is a significant advancement to Masimo SET-guided critical congenital heart disease (“CCHD”) screening, with the CE marking and European launch of the Masimo SET MOC-9 module and the addition of the Eve CCHD Newborn Screening Application for Root. Masimo had also announced a slew of favorable studies regarding its products during the fourth quarter as well as throughout the year. These activities raise optimism on the stock.
