Masimo exited the second quarter of 2023 with better-than-expected revenues. The expansion of the company’s installed base was impressive. Management confirmed that the company gained new hospital customers during the quarter at a record level, which was encouraging. The expansion of both margins in the quarter bodes well.
On the second-quarter earnings call, Masimo’s management confirmed that its Non-healthcare segment’s Hearables category (including headphones and earbuds) was scaled up in the second half of 2022 with the introduction of the Bowers & Wilkins PI7, PX7 and PX8 headphone models. The company has also been witnessing steady growth in its Hearables category on the back of the launch of Denon PerL earbuds with automatic customization of the sound spectrum for personalized listening experience in June. These look promising for the stock.
On the flip side, lower-than-expected earnings and the dismal top-line and bottom-line performances were disappointing. The decline in its Healthcare and Non-healthcare segmental revenues was worrying. Masimo’s lower-than-expected sensor orders during the reported quarter were discouraging.
