First-quarter revenue came in at $113 million, up 14% from 2010’s first quarter. Wall Street expected Masimo’s revenue to come in at $110.7 million.

Masimo, as is its custom, didn’t give an outlook for the current quarter in its earnings release.

Analysts expect the company to post a profit of $17.7 million in the second quarter.

Masimo's second-quarter revenue is seen as coming in at $111.6 million.
