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 ended the first quarter on a dull note, with earnings and revenues lagging estimates. Contraction in the gross and operating margin is worrisome. Additionally, the da Vinci system is in the early stages of adoption in some of the markets outside the United States which is likely to impede placements. Intense competition in the global MedTech space is concerning as well. However, the flagship da Vinci procedures recorded solid growth in the quarter. In fact, management expects strong procedure growth in 2019. The company looks to accelerate its business in China, following the clearance of da Vinci Xi system. Sales outside the United States surged as well. Management is optimistic about the recent approvals for the Ion endoluminal system, IRIS augmented reality product and the da Vinci SP Surgical System. Meanwhile, the newly-formed Intuitive Foundation is expected to improve patient outcome." (4/24/2019) 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "like we previewed, ISRG posted a healthy beat on procedures and system units placed but reported a slight miss on sales (increased leases) and opex came in near the top end of guidance, causing EPS to miss. We understand the benefits of offering several routes to system acquisition and the leases do not bother us. Getting more systems out there and surgeons trained before any significant competition makes sense. The continued increased spending is a concern. While we gather robotics is in the early days, the increased spending started a few years ago and what was initially discussed as a one- or two-year plan has become now at least a three- or four-year plan that seems like it may last a long time. With guidance revised to a 24-28% y/y increase vs the initial 20-28%, investors may pause." (4/21/2019) 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We reiterate our Overweight rating on shares of ISRG and maintain our PT of $620. ISRG reported 4Q18 results consistent with its preliminary announcement (1/9). ISRG delivered 19% procedure growth for 4Q18, largely driven by US general surgery and worldwide urology. ISRG reiterated its procedure growth guidance (13-17%), however we expect initial guidance to prove conservative as it has over the past several years. Management plans to increase opex by 20-28% in 2019, which comes as a surprise. We expect investors to have an initial negative reaction to the expected significant increase in spending, but we think the investments will fuel future top-line growth and accelerate ISRG’s pipeline." (1/25/2019) 4. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We are tweaking our models accordingly, and are introducing our FY20 numbers. Key Points Instrument & Accessory revs @ $539M vs. our estimate @ $535M. Systems revs @ $340M vs. our estimate @ $327M." (1/10/2019) Has Intuitive Surgical been receiving favorable news coverage?
