Boston Scientific

Boston Scientific stock (NYSE: BSX) has seen an 11% rise in a month and year-to-date. This compares with 1% and -16% returns for the broader S&P500 index over the same periods, respectively. This recent outperformance of Boston Scientific can partly be attributed to its announcement to acquire Apollo Endosurgery in a $615 million deal. [1] This move is largely seen as positive for the company enabling it to expand its endoscopy offerings. Boston Scientific has also announced its plans to acquire a majority stake in Acotec Scientific Holdings – a Chinese medical technology company focused on solutions for interventional procedures. [2] Acotec will strengthen Boston Scientific’s MedSurg segment.

But now that BSX stock has seen a rise of 11% in a month, will it continue its upward trajectory, or is a fall imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a higher chance of a rise for Boston Scientific stock over the next month. Of 247 instances in the last ten years that BSX stock saw a twenty-one-day rise of 11% or more, 145 resulted in BSX stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days).
