Scotts Miracle-Gro. Co. SMG said Wednesday its first-quarter loss widened to $64.7 million, or $1.17 a share, from a loss of $50 million, or 90 cents a share in the year-ago quarter. The lawn and cannabis growing products company's adjusted loss widened to $1.02 a share from 88 cents a share in the year-ago period. Revenue fell 7% to $526.6 million. Analysts expected Scotts Miracle-Gro to lose $1.34 a share on revenue of $502.4 million, according to estimates compiled by FactSet. Scotts Miracle-Gro said it's targeting $185 million in annualized savings for an initiative called project springboard. The company also reported record December shipments in its U.S. Consumer business that "contributed to a strong early season buildout demonstrating confidence in the lawn and garden season." First-quarter sales in its Hawthorne cannabis growing product unit fell 31% to $131.5 million, compared with $190.6 million, due to "challenges" in the industry, the company said.

: Boston Scientific stock slides 5% premarket after profit miss
Boston Scientific Corp. stock BSX slid 5% in premarket trade Wednesday, after the medical device maker missed profit estimates for the fourth quarter. The company had net income of $126 million, or 9 cents a share, up from $80 million, or 6 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Excluding one-time items, adjusted EPS came to 45 cents, below the 47 cent FactSet consensus. Sales rose to $3.242 billion from $3.127 billion, in line with the $3.243 billion FactSet consensus.

It expects full-year adjusted EPS of $1.86 to $1.93, compared with a FactSet consensus of $1.93. The stock is up 6.3% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 SPX has fallen 10%.
