The post Will the ResMed (ASX:RMD) share price continue its massive bull run? appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –

The ResMed Inc (ASX: RMD) share price has had a stellar run this year and is currently nudging record highs.

Since the start of the year, shares in the medical device have soared more than 45%.

In comparison, the broader S&P/ASX200 Index (ASX: XJO) has only managed to gain 13% in 2021.

In the last month, shares in ResMed have continued their massive bull run.

Let’s take a look at why investors have continued to push the ResMed share price higher in the past month.

What’s been driving the ResMed share price higher?

There have been several catalysts that have helped propel the ResMed share price higher in the last 30 days.

The first catalyst can be traced back to early last month when the medical device company released its full-year results for FY21.

ResMed reported an 8% increase in full year to US$3.2 billion and a 13% jump in non-GAAP net income to US$780.6 million.

The company also upped its quarterly dividend by 8% to US42 cents per share.

However, ResMed did flag that profit margins could be under pressure in the future.

The second catalyst that shot the ResMed share price to record highs was the launch of a new key product.

Last month, the medtech giant launched its next-generation positive airway pressure (PAP) device, AirSense 11, in the United States.

ResMed noted that the product’s remote software updates and new tailored features could make it the gold standard for treating sleep apnoea.

Outlook for the ResMed share price

ResMed is a global leader in respiratory medical devices, particularly targeted towards the treatment of sleep apnoea.

In addition, the company also produces invasive and non-invasive ventilators that are used to boost the oxygen intake of patients. 

Shares in ResMed have benefited from the company’s strong revenue and earnings growth.

The medtech giant has managed to maintain growth by providing industry-leading products, software and continued investment in research and development.

A recent note from leading broker Morgans indicates that the ResMed share price could continue its massive bull run.

Analysts expect the positive form to continue over the medium term, initiating a $41.34 price target on ResMed’s shares.

At the time of writing, the ResMed share price is trading slightly lower for the day at $39.75.
