Masimo (NASDAQ:MASI) stock is taking a beating on Tuesday after the patient monitoring tech company released preliminary earnings for the second quarter of 2023.

The bad news for investors in MASI stock starts with its expected revenue of between $453 million and $457 million for Q2. That’s nowhere close to the $540.87 million that Wall Street is expecting for the quarter.

Masimo contributes the lower-than-expected revenue to a drop in healthcare revenue. It attributes this decline to delays in large orders, falling single-patient use sensor sales, lower customer conversions and decreasing demand for its products from hospitals.

MASI Outlook Hits Stock

Also not helping MASI stock today is the company’s latest outlook. This has it dropping the lower end of its annual revenue guidance for the healthcare business to $1.3 billion. The prior guidance was $1.45 billion.

Adding to this, Masimo is dropping guidance for its annual non-healthcare business revenue to between $800 million and $850 million. Prior guidance had this revenue ranging from $965 million to $995 million.

With this news comes strong trading of MASI stock on Tuesday morning. As of this writing, more than 307,000 shares of the company’s stock have been traded. That’s closing in on its daily average trading volume of about 476,000 shares.
