The drop was not normal due to the float dynamic discussed below. The steep drop left MASI at RSI levels that tend to bounce very well in the near term. Check the key levels - the daily, 4 hour, and 1 hour chart RSI.
-Daily RSI at 19
-4 Hour RSI at 14
-1 Hour RSI at 16
When you see this combination of RSI levels, you can almost always predict quite a recovery bounce the next day, especially when the overall company numbers are this good (see below)
-BlackRock, Vanguard, and the company CEO collectively own 33%+ of the float. The institutions that own it are very high quality companies that can easily move the price up by buying it up at the lows.
-The total float is roughly 96-98% owned by institutions
The price hasn't been this low in years. You need to pull up the 3 year chart to find this low, and there is very strong support right where the price is now. In fact, the last time it dropped to this level it bounced over $175 shortly afterwards, and then well above $200 soon thereafter. That was when $MASI was making much lower revenue than they are now. (*see chart below or look for yourself)
-Promisingly, Masimo reported in-line fourth-quarter sales of $327.6 million, up 11% on a reported basis. Adjusted earnings were $1.21 per share, above Masimo stock analysts' call for $1.10
-Masimo also retained its 2022 revenue guidance for $1.35 billion, implying constant-currency growth of 9.5%. The company also expects to earn $4.34 per share.
This drop was too steep for the numbers they are putting up and the combined technicals and fundamentals here will lead to quite a gap fill. At least a partial fill to $175 should come very soon.
-The CEO says "We see significant opportunities to cross-leverage technologies, bringing Masimo's clinically superior solutions into the home and on-the-go as well as bringing Sound United's premium technologies into the hospital to advance our hospital automation connectivity and cloud-based technologies."
