Summing Up Fresenius Medical reported strong results in the third quarter . The company continues to gain from Health Care Products and Services units, which witnessed revenue growth in the quarter under review. Revenues in the North American, EMEA and Asia-Pacific regions also improved. Cisco Systems Inc. shares declined in the extended session Tuesday after the maker of network services, videoconferencing tools and security software’s quarterly results topped Wall Street estimates, but sales in certain segments came in below expectations.

analyst Sven Kürten from DZ Bank spoke of very strong results above expectations with a view to FMC and at the same time attested Fresenius had a good quarter. The confirmed outlook is positive, even if it is not yet clear to what extent the latest lockdown measures are already included.

Jefferies analyst James Vane-Tempest spoke of mixed numbers at Fresenius. The recovery in the Helios hospital business offset the Kabi and Vamed segments.

analyst David Adlington of the US bank JPMorgan noted that Fresenius' net profit is a good 2 percent above the consensus forecast. The pessimists on the market are likely to focus primarily on the poor performance of the food division Kabi.

Investors' concerns, particularly about the Kabi business, were already reflected in the most recent Fresenius share price development. From the Corona low in mid-March at a little more than 24 euros, the shares had almost doubled in value by the end of June, but only one month later the share began to plummet, which continues to this day. In the past three weeks, the rate of the setback has accelerated. The day before, the shares slipped to the lowest price level in seven months. The previous annual balance is minus 36 percent. This means that the Fresenius share does significantly worse than the industry and the DAX on the stock exchange.
