J&J Warns That Inflation & China’s Covid Outbreak May Hit 2023 Figures – $JNJ $DIA $INM

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Dow 30 component Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) warned that the impact of high inflation and China’s major COVID-19 outbreak may creep into 2023 impacting sales in the first half of the year at its medical devices segment. J&J forecast 2023 sales of $96.9 billion to $97.9 billion, putting the midpoint of the range below market estimates. The healthcare giant forecast adjusted 2023 earnings of $10.45 to $10.65 per share, above analysts’ estimates of $10.35.

Sales of some key treatments, such as Crohn’s disease drug Stelara, missed analyst estimates. But COVID-19 vaccine sales exceeded diminished expectations and demand for cancer drug Darzalex helped drive the fourth-quarter profit figures. The company reported $689 million in quarterly COVID-19 vaccine sales from outside the United States. Pharmaceutical sales of $13.16 billion for the fourth quarter slightly exceeded estimates of $13.14 billion, helped by $2.08 billion in Darzalex sales, beating analysts expectation of $2.02 billion for the drug. 

J&J also recorded $821 million in COVID-19 vaccine-related costs, which were related to changes in its research program and manufacturing capacity. Excluding items, J&J earned $2.35 per share for the quarter, exceeding analysts’ estimates by 12 cents.
