Jefferies maintained a Buy rating on Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE: MDT), and cut the price target to $88.00 (from $100.00), following the company's 2Q earnings report. Guidance was cut as MDT had been calling for revenue growth in the upper half of mid-single digit growth and EPS of $4.60-$4.70 for 2017. EPS guidance was cut to $4.55-$4.60.

Analyst Raj Denhoy commented, "Medtronic’s weak 2Q set back almost a year of progress for the company. Sales growth was just +3%, with US growth just +1%. The recent strong product cycles have waned and the company finds itself in a slower period before new things kick in. Our numbers and PT come down but there is still enough upside to keep us at Buy."
