  • Baxter Int'l Q3 Profit Slides on Acquisition Costs; Adjusted EPS Matches Estimates, But Revenue Misses (BAX)

    Before the bell on Thursday, Baxter International Inc. (BAX) , a maker of medical products, reported a 7% year-over-year decline in third quarter profits, mostly due to the impact of charges related to its acquisition of Gambro.
