In ROP’s 2Q16 results, investors should closely watch the Industrial Technology segment’s growth as well as its operating margins. At the same time, the guidance and outlook that Roper Technologies gives for each of its segments will be crucial. ROP’s quarterly revenues have missed analyst expectations in six of eight previous quarters.
ROP’s revenues can be broadly classified in the four following segments:
- Medical and Scientific Imaging
- RF Technology
- Industrial (XLI) Technology
- Energy Systems and Controls
These segments contributed around 37%, 31%, 19%, and 13%, respectively, to the company’s consolidated revenues in 1Q16.

Will ROP’s Energy and Industrial technology segment support its fiscal 2016 targets after the company’s 2Q16 results? Investors will need to wait for July 25, 2016, for more insights.
