Is It Us, Or Are Quarterly Financials All A Bit Samey Right Now?

It wouldn’t be altogether surprising if there were common threads through big medtech company quarterly financial statements. After all, the environment is tough for all and the same for all. This week our editorial, which is online now and can be found here, dares to suggest that the impending medtech sales tax may be a whipping boy for all ills and a great curtain of Wizard of Oz proportions, behind which to be getting on with the machinations of hacking costs out of businesses. In fact, reading many of these formulaic documents one starts to feel so jaded about the whole shebang that we need to pinch ourselves to remind us what a life affirming, rewarding and dynamic business we’re in.
