Artisan Mid Cap Fund made the following comment about Agilent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:A) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

"We ended our investment campaigns in Agilent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:A), Teledyne and Envista during the quarter. Agilent is an analytical technology provider with strength in the life sciences industry. While its management continues to execute well, we believe several important end markets have entered extended periods of slower growth, including pharmaceutical small molecule research and China. Therefore, we decided to harvest the position in favor of accelerating profit cycle opportunities elsewhere in the portfolio."
