7/8/13Natus Medical Inc. (BABY)
Natus Medical is not nourishing its investors today, down 13.37% at $12.38. The newborn care company saw its shares fall after disappointing preliminary revenue figures for the second quarter. Natus announced that it expects $81 million to $82 million in sales compared to its previous guidance of $86 million to $90 million; and well below analysts' forecast of $88.8 million. The company blamed a rapid drop-off in international sales for their lower forecast. Natus Medical shares are trading in middle of their 52-week range of $9.65-15.18.
