Boston Scientific

Boston Scientific stock (NYSE: BSX) has seen a 9% fall in a month, in line with the broader S&P500, which is down 8%. The recent fall can primarily be attributed to the market weakness, owing to concerns over slowing economic growth. Boston Scientific’s performance was also in line with its peers, including Medtronic, Abbott, and Intuitive Surgical, all down between 8% and 12% over the last month.

Over the recent quarters, Boston Scientific has benefited from a rise in elective procedure volume. It also acquired Baylis Medical in Q1 22, which should bolster the company’s overall revenue growth going forward. Despite the ongoing supply chain disruption, the company posted upbeat Q1 results and raised its full-year outlook. However, BSX stock faces headwinds from the current weakness in broader markets. The S&P500 has now entered the bear market territory with rising concerns of slowing economic growth given the high inflation, Fed action, and supply chain disruptions.

But now that BSX stock has seen a fall of 9% in a month will it continue its downward trajectory, or is a rise imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a high chance of a rise for Boston Scientific stock over the next month. Of 102 instances in the last ten years that BSX stock saw a twenty-one-day fall of 9% or more, 74 resulted in BSX stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 74 out of 102, or about a 73% chance of a rise in BSX stock over the next month. See our analysis of Boston Scientific Stock Chance of Rise for more details.
