Medical Devices Upheaval Can Return J&J to Growth According to Fourth Quarter Results - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Orthopaedics Business News Issue 189" report to their offering.

J&J's fourth quarter results consolidate the core view that the solid underlying fundamentals of its Medical Devices segment are being tempered by external factors. International performance will continue to be challenging but the medical device restructuring strategy, combined with a targeted M&A programme, should alleviate pressure. However, if growth rates remain subdued we forecast a conglomerate break-up as a long-term alternative view.
