What’s in Store for Edwards Lifesciences’ (EW) Q3 Earnings?

Edwards Lifesciences Corporation EW is slated to report third-quarter 2020 results on Oct 21, after market close.

In the last reported quarter, the company posted an earnings surprise of 126.67%.

Let’s see how things are shaping up prior to this announcement.

Factors at Play

Critical Care

The third-quarter results are expected to reflect a mixed performance by the core Critical Care product group. The pandemic has continued to impact the procedural volumes in the segment, as elective procedures have been deferred. Global demand has been soft due to the pandemic-led business disruptions over the past few months.

However, management is optimistic about the robust customer adoption of the TruWave disposable pressure monitoring devices, despite the challenging pandemic-led market conditions. This is likely to be reflected in the third-quarter results. Robust demand for Edwards Lifesciences’ ICU products is also likely to have boosted the top line.

However, a decline in HemoSphere

ConocoPhillips in Talks to Buy Concho: What’s in Store?

ConocoPhillips COP is considering the acquisition of smaller rival Concho Resources Inc. CXO, per Bloomberg. The current market volatility might trigger more acquisitions in the oil and gas space.

Although any final decision regarding the acquisition is yet to be made, there’s a chance that a deal might be finalized in the next few weeks. A massive $38.2-billion upstream company, ConocoPhillips’ acquisition of Concho Resources — a $8.8-billion company — will likely lead to the creation of one of the biggest exploration and production companies in the world.

The move is expected to boost ConocoPhillips’ oil-rich Permian Basin acreages. Spanning 800,000 gross (550,000 net) acres, Concho Resources’ assets are spread over high-quality land across the core Delaware and Midland Basins. Total second-quarter production for ConocoPhillips and Concho Resources were recorded at 1.3 million barrels of oil equivalent per day, per Bloomberg.

Now, a question may arise whether ConocoPhillips’ balance sheet

Walmart to host ‘revamped’ Black Friday via multiple online and in-store events [Video]

Walmart (WMT), the world’s largest retailer, will host a “revamped” Black Friday to avoid those doorbuster crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic by prompting shoppers to seek holiday deals online and in less crowded stores.

Instead of a single in-store shopping bonanza, Walmart will spread its Black Friday across three separate events and multiple days in November. Called “Black Friday Deals for Days,” the events will all start online before transitioning to in-stores a few days later. The big-box retailer will also offer shoppers contact-free, curbside pickup at its stores for Black Friday orders.

Black Friday has long been considered the unofficial kick-off to the holiday shopping season and one of the most crucial retail calendar periods. However, this year, the coronavirus pandemic is forcing retailers to rethink the holiday shopping event to avoid those large crowds. As a result, many retailers are getting a jumpstart on holiday deals online and

What do Democrats have in store for Amy Coney Barrett?

WHAT DO DEMOCRATS HAVE IN STORE FOR AMY CONEY BARRETT? The short version of the Barrett Supreme Court confirmation hearings so far is that Democrats have not laid a glove on President Trump’s nominee. On issues of the law, there’s no way they can. Barrett (like previous SCOTUS nominees from both parties, but perhaps even more so) knows more about the law than the members of the committee, and also appears to have led an exemplary life.

But remember this: Back in 2018, the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation did not turn into a total disaster until after the hearings were over. Yes, there were signs that the fight might turn ugly. There were protesters in the audience each day, and they regularly interrupted the proceedings before police dragged them out of

Contactless checkout: Why it’s coming to the bodega before the chain store

caper-counter-user-1.png

Autonomous checkout is a new reality, which doesn’t require any physical scanning of objects, is fast becoming a reality. What’s surprising is that the capability may be coming to the small corner stores before it hits major grocery chains. 

COVID-19 has certainly hastened development and rollout of the technology. Where I live in Los Angeles, it’s striking how popular corner stores during the frenzied early days of the pandemic when lines at super markets sometimes stretched around the block. Since then, a new “touchless” reality has set in, and developers are keen to capitalize.

I recently wrote about a company called Standard, which is bringing autonomous checkout to college campuses with an emphasis on retrofitting existing retail concepts. There have also been novel checkout technologies that utilize an AI-powered shopping cart to clock which items customers are nabbing. Caper, creators of one such cart, recently expanded its product line of

How Venus flytraps store short-term ‘memories’ of prey

A Venus flytrap’s short-term “memory” can last about 30 seconds. If an insect taps the plant’s sensitive hairs only once, the trap remains still. But if the insect taps again within about half a minute, the carnivorous plant’s leaves snap shut, ensnaring its prey.

How Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) remember that initial touch has been a mystery. A new study reveals that the plants do so using calcium, researchers report online October 5 in Nature Plants.

Scientists know that some plants have a type of long-term memory, says study coauthor Mitsuyasu Hasebe, a biologist at the National Institute for Basic Biology in Okazaki, Japan. One example is vernalization, whereby plants remember long periods of winter cold as a signal to flower in the spring. But short-term memory is more enigmatic, and “this is the first direct evidence of the involvement of calcium,” Hasebe says.

Even though the

Rite Aid debuts its ‘store of the future’

At the Rite Aid store in the Newberry Pointe shopping center in Newberry Township, York County, the outside of the building looks mostly the same although there are some changes and the new logo appears on the facility. But, shoppers who enter the store will notice big changes.

This week, East Pennsboro Township-based Rite Aid introduced the first two pilot stores of what the company is calling “the store of the future” which is part of a $700 million store overhaul the drugstore chain announced in March. The investment is part of its new corporate strategy known as the “Rx Revolution” which it said will not only change what the stores look like but how they operate and what they sell.

The store in Newberry Township and another store in New Hampshire opened under the new model on Sunday and the company held a grand opening on Tuesday. The stores
