What are Wall Street analysts saying about Intuitive Surgical stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Intuitive Surgical stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Intuitive Surgical outperformed the industry in a year’s time. Strong prospects in the company’s robotic platform – da Vinci System – is a major positive. Notably, da Vinci procedures recorded solid growth in recent times. This is led by growth in U.S. general surgery procedures and global urologic procedures. A regulatory approval for the Sure Form 60 buoys optimism. Earlier this year, the company submitted a premarket notification to the FDA for the Ion endoluminal system. Management is also optimistic about the company’s collaboration with InTouch Health. On the negative side, the company expects outside U.S. sales to be a bit lumpy in the quarters ahead. These markets are in early stages of adoption. Intense competition in the global MedTech space as well as long sale and purchase order cycles of da Vinci unit has been currently plaguing the company." (12/13/2018)
  • 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Procedures Accelerate Intuitive reported another strong quarter but this time procedures accelerated to ~20% y/y growth. On the procedure side, hernia continues to be the strongest growth contributor with management noting hernia is no longer in the first innings but has plenty of growth potential to come. Colorectal continued strong US growth while core GYN and prostate trends remained healthy in the US. OUS prostate growth paced Europe while Japan saw ~40% growth driven by newly established reimbursement. Systems again topped the Street but this includes a larger contribution from leases. We believe getting systems out in the field makes sense, but at the high valuation, some investors may not want to give full credit for leases that do not drive full ASPs up front." (10/21/2018)
