    Excise Tax

    The 5% reduction in force was announced more than a year ago (long forgotten by the time it would be political spin). I hope Stryker is still a growth company, but it had to address the additional cost of an excise tax on US sales of its devices, which it chose to do with a reduction in force. Just as elections have consequences, so do taxes.

    Sentiment: Hold
