SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 21, 2020 -- Intuitive (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: ISRG), a global technology leader in minimally invasive care and the pioneer of robotic-assisted surgery,.
Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) has provided market-beating returns since it first went public back in 2000, but at the moment, many investors are skeptical of the company's prospects. Intuitive Surgical generates much of its revenue from the sale of instruments and accessories for its da Vinci Surgical System, which is used in a number of procedures performed at hospitals. As a result, Intuitive Surgical's first-quarter results took a hit, and the company opted to withdraw its full-year guidance.
It also had a profound effect on the company I'm talking about here: Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG), maker of the da Vinci surgical system. If you're a long-term investor (we're talking decades here, folks), none of this should really bother you.
Intuitive Surgical leads healthcare gainers lifting the market, while Netflix investors "sell the news" and travel stocks fall on a weakening jobs opening market and rising cases of COVID-19 around the world.
The stock market has had an up-and-down week, and Friday was no exception. Major market indexes finished mixed, but the Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) and the Nasdaq-100 Index managed to post modest gains to finish the week. Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) doesn't have any direct connection to COVID-19, but many see the robotic surgery leader as a vital piece of ensuring that medical professionals can safely conduct procedures with minimal risk to themselves and their patients, and its stock climbed considerably.
Shares of robotic surgery pioneer Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) are up 7.9% in 3:20 p.m. EDT trading Friday, a delayed but welcome reaction to some good news that came out Thursday. "Good news" for Intuitive Surgical, that is to say; less good news for would-be robotic surgery rivals Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) and Medtronic (NYSE: MDT). Yesterday morning (a down day for the stock market, which may be why Intuitive stock didn't react to it), Goldman Sachs noted that medical products giant Johnson & Johnson has suffered a "major delay" to its robotic surgery program.
The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don't use leverage) is 100% of your money. But on a lighter note, a...
One of the greatest stocks you can buy that you'll never need to worry about selling is payment-processor Visa (NYSE: V). Although Visa is susceptible to a reduction in payment volume crossing its network during periods of contraction or recession, these downward trends in the economy have historically been much shorter than periods of expansion. This means buying Visa would tie your investment to the overall growth of the U.S. and global economy.
Overall, medical-device stocks are also beating the S&P 500 and healthcare stocks, in general, so far this year. Abbott Labs (NYSE: ABT) is second only to Johnson & Johnson on the list of the world's biggest medical-device stocks companies by market cap. There are two product lines that I think will be especially important growth drivers for Abbott in the second half of this year.
On this day, 244 years ago, all but one of the 13 United Colonies officially adopted the Declaration of Independence, thus declaring their collective right to govern without England calling the shots. If you have spare cash that won't be needed to pay bills or cover emergencies, then the following blend of growth and income stocks should be perfect to help you secure your financial freedom. The first top stock that'll put you on the path toward financial independence is e-commerce giant Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN).
Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) continues to benefit from rising da Vinci Surgical System, strong international presence and robust recurring revenue base.
All an investor needs to do is to buy shares of public companies that have a competitive advantage -- and that, as a result, can continue generating growing revenue and earnings for decades -- and hold these shares for a long time. Today, we'll look at two healthcare stocks that sport a healthy moat, and explore why both of these stocks are worth adding to your portfolio. Vertex Pharma is a biotech company that has one of the most compelling competitive advantages any business can have: The company holds a monopoly in the market for drugs that treat the underlying causes of cystic fibrosis (CF), a genetic condition that causes damage to internal organs such as the lungs.
When you think "medical robots," what name jumps to mind first? When it comes to pure-play medical robotics companies that make robots to assist surgeons in performing their surgeries, Intuitive Surgical is the one to beat (rivals Mazor Robotics and Mako Surgical having already been gobbled up and subsumed into larger med-tech companies). As it turns out, when the Pentagon thinks about investing in surgical robots, Intuitive Surgical is the one they call, too.
While panic-selling can certainly be unnerving if you're a short-term trader, it's always been an opportunity to buy into great companies at a discount if you're a long-term investor. Throughout the 33-calendar-day decline in the broader market in February and March, I took the opportunity to add quite a few new companies to my investment portfolio. The single greatest thing about Intuitive Surgical is the fact that the company's operating margins are built to improve over time.
