The Cochlear Limited (ASX: COH) share price is having a great start to the new month after struggling through a less than ideal August.

Cochlear shares fell 4.97% over the course of last month, with the biggest catalyst for the drop being the company’s financial year 2021 earnings.

Fortunately, Cochlear’s stock ended August and started September on an upward trajectory. It has gained 4.47% over the course of this week.

Right now, the Cochlear share price is trading at $237.10, gaining 1.96% today alone.

Let’s take a look at what’s been happening lately.

What’s up with Cochlear this week?

Shares in the hearing device manufacturer appear to be recovering after a poor month’s performance in August.

It has pulled itself up by the bootstraps this week after posting lower than expected profits for the 2021 financial year and less than satisfactory guidance for the financial year 2022.

As The Motley Fool Australia reported at the time, despite the company reporting profits inside its previously given guidance, it fell short of the market’s expectations.

The Cochlear share price suffered as a result, falling 7.4% on the day it posted its earnings results. The following week, shares in the company continued their downwards trajectory, falling another 4.3%.

The market hasn’t heard any fresh news from Cochlear since. However, investor confidence in the ASX healthcare giant appears to have rebounded and its shares are recovering the lost ground.
