  • debeers: @bRobert $ALGN $EXAS $ISRG -$EXAS just keeps on going. if saving $$$ is the name of the game and the edorsements are all there to say it is, $EXAS should do 40 no sweat then maybe more depending on the conf call in the pm of the same day.

  • woodman: @bRobert $BEAT $MDT $EW $BSX $SYK $ISRG $ALGN $ABMD - All the medical "stuff" - devices; instruments/supplies; diagnostics/research - I have are working well today and/or are in good spots to buy.
  • Bridget: $ALGN currently in a squeeze, but looking close to a breakout. Seeing an intraday spike.
  • bRobert: @Bridget $ALGN This is a holding stock for me. I don't try to get to cute with a such a good employee for many years from $30 level. World wide penetration accelerating.
  • bRobert: $OSUR $CLVS $ESPR $CELG $BEAT $ALGN $MDT $EW $BSX $ISRG $EXAS $MASI osur clvs espr celg beat Many flags/pennants waving. Watching Medical equipment perky. Will add to some longs.
  • debeers: @bRobert $OSUR $CLVS $ESPR $CELG $BEAT $ALGN $MDT $EW $BSX $ISRG $EXAS $MASI ====$EXAS for me, you can have the others because the UNH endorsement will make them make their numbers even without the other endorsements from the other HMO's.
  • bRobert: @debeers $OSUR $CLVS $ESPR $CELG $BEAT $ALGN $MDT $EW $BSX $ISRG $EXAS $MASI Agree about EXAS potential growth and future potential applications of the technogy to other cancers eg pancreatic EW MDT are slow steady growers with important proprietary technology that saves considerable amount of money to healthcare system. EW's TAVR procedure replaces a sternotomy (cracked chest, invasive for open heart valve replacement). And the patients have fewer complications. Indications expanding. ALGN has phenomenal growth and is expanding worldwide. Great weekly chart.
  • bRobert: $ALGN $MDT $EW $BSX $ISRG $LNTH High quality medical equipment firms in sideways consolidation . Watch for next move up. $LNTH breaking out

    "Window dressing" is one of those things that can be used to explain almost any move higher at the end of a quarter, since no one ever claims to be doing it. If it does happen, it occurs because active managers have missed owning one or mo ...
  • bRobert: @Forexpro $ALGN A great company with phenomenal sales/ revenue growth and expanding internationally. A very old employee of mine from around $30.
  • bRobert: $MDT $ALGN Long term employees. MDT marching to 100. Easy holding stock. ALGN is a growth monster
  • bRobert: $MDT $ALGN $ISRG $BSX $EW $MASI Medical technology strong. MASI breaking above consolidation/50d
  • bRobert: $ISRG $ALGN $BSX $ALGN $EW $MDT $MASI Healthy sideways consolidation and beginning of a squeeze setup for next move in medical equipment sector. MDT blue sky. MASI squeezing below 50d.
  • bRobert: $MDT $EW $BSX $ISRG $ALGN $SYK Medical equipment names moving. All high quality companies. Great weekly charts. $MDT as it enters blue sky territory has a $100 target. EW's TAVR valve replacement product is a real benefit in terms of morbidiy/mortality and costs. Indications are expanding. Would you rather have your chest cracked open for open heart surgery or have a minimally invasive procedure and go home in a day?
  • bRobert: $ALGN $ISRG Constructive pullbacks in these quality high growth names. Looking to add. Holding stocks in long term portfolio
  • JBed: $ALGN, $VRTX still working.
  • JBed: $ALGN $VRTX Took half profits on these today, keeping core positions and moving up my stops.
  • Bridget: @JBed $ALGN $VRTX well done!
  • mharps: $ALGN-could be beginning to move higher- took a bit on 145 calls
  • JBed: $ALGN Moving up. Starter position.
  • Esther: @issues $XHE good point about the volume. But it has been a solid performer in spite of that that. It has a lot of good stuff that I would normally want to buy. $IDXX, which I recall from yesterday might be at a good buy point, $ISRG, which is surgical robots, $ALGN which are the invislign retainers every dentist and his sister likes to push. They had $MASI as a top holding but sold it sometime (before? after?) it became a broken stock. It has a pretty small float, in general, on $2.1 million shares. Average daily volume over the last 20 days was 31,353. But According to my Schwab screen its 100 percent owned by institutions, which could partly explain the low volume.
  • zimzala: $ALGN, setting up for an inside day buy off the rising 8EMA.
  • riskmanager: $ALGN: Up 18% on earnings beat. This one fell off my radar screen to my regrets.
  • mradams0621: $ALGN flopping around like a beached fish $139 up to $145 back down to $139. What's next?
  • Bridget: $ALGN at a new all time high
  • issues: $ALGN fake out not break out?
  • zimzala:
  • issues: @zimzala $ALGN Thanks. I have trouble getting the right earnings release; beat/miss. Zacks is fast and shows a list (check out how easy to read this is: But AMTD seems more accurate. Where do you look for earnings estimates vs actual? Yahoo?
  • issues: I can see rotation out of financials and am thinking of shorting some of them. I am wondering what they are rotating into. Consumer staples, metals, oils... Dana's Hogs... As look for clues as to where the big money is going I look at the IBD 50. Here's what I see in this weeks list. The following financials are in this weeks IBD 50: $BOFI $CFG $FRC $GS $HOMB $MBFI $MS $OZRK $SCHW $SIVB $STL $WAL. As you look at these charts you can see most are dropping. At some point they will be good buys. How low before that? Wait to see the green day, ok? The new additions in this weeks IBD 50 include $ALGN $CRTO $FCB $FRC $MCHP $MIDD $MXL (Gone are $EWBC $FFIV $LOGM $LOPE $URI $UVE). That's my research for today.
  • issues: @Rasta I will have to ask IBD, ok? I will need some sort of remuneration from you, right? Ok ok, just kidding. Don't tell IBD but here it is: $NVDA $UBNT $EVR $THO $HQY $TREX $ANET $IDCC $CPE $BOFI $AEIS $CFG $ESNT $EXP $VEEV $WAL $PRI $AMAT $SIVB $PLAY $SCHW $STMP $GRUB $FCB $HOMB $STL $MS $CGNX $MSCC $GATX $CRTO $COMM $OZRK $MXL $NTES $UTHR $GIMO $MPWR $GNTX $FRC $RDN $MASI $ALGN $JCOM $WNC $MBFI $GS $CARB $MIDD $MCHP

    Each week (Saturday) IBD gives a new IBD 50 LIST of stocks in which some have replaced others from the prior week. The replacements can range from 5 or 10 to 12 to 15, but never are all 50 replaced. What is especially compelling for me are the sto ...
  • highroad54: $ALGN Dan would you give me your thoughts on $ALGN.
  • rj7150: @highroad54 $ALGN - Not Dan, but this may be partly due to an adverse ruling in Europe on some patent challenges last week??
  • DAN: @highroad54 $ALGN It's got healthy fundamentals, with revenue and earnings growing consistently. I think the stock is just resting now. Not really a compelling buy because it's not down close enough to the December low to make it a low risk buy. And it's not breaking out either. The long term uptrend is healthy...I just think the stock needs to consolidate a bit. If it breaks out above $100...then watch volume. We'd need to see heavy volume. Hope that helps.
  • DAN: $ALGN continuing its move above $100. Kind of tough to buy at this level, given my sense of where the market is right now. But wanted to point this out.
  • SierraJW: 59 min trade? $AMD, $NVDA, $ALGN, $HZPN all up, now down, this AM. $STM up also, LT hold on pullbacks, IMHO (Internet of things stock) Some may be longer term, as well - I need to check out reasons for move in $HZPN, for example.

  • TaxFish: $AERI $ALGN $FOMX - VS off 50ma.
  • DAN: $ALGN -- This stock is up more than 2% today and bouncing off significant support.
  • Rich Loeffler: @DAN $ALGN do you think it needs to clear the "top of the box" around $57.72 before taking a position? Thanks
  • DAN: $LAD $ACT $ALGN $SWKS $VRX $CAR $AVGO $BITA Stocks that are showing potential today: $LAD -- bouncing off 50- and 200-day MAs. New uptrend. $ACT -- another day, another 2%. Uptrend continues along the 50-day MA. $ALGN -- this is an oversold bounce. Probably not much here b/c the stock has fallen from $64 down to $56 in just 5 trading days. That's a lot of pain.'s an oversold bounce. $SWKS -- breaking out to the upside. $VRX -- Not necessarily "actionable" today...but it's completed a really good "cup" pattern with a bit of a "handle". Kind of rough, but the breakout was at $150. $CAR -- pullback is an opportunity. $AVGO -- yet again, this warrior continues to attack! $BITA -- looks like ALGN. Oversold bounce. I'll be covering all these stocks tonight. Dan

  • Edgarzb: $ALGN - Low risk buy point. Great fundies.
  • philharmonic: $ALGN @Edgarzb - Looks like it may try to fill the gap. Heading towards the 200dma.
  • greberalan: $ALGN @Edgarzb Thank you for you post on ALGN. I had it on my watch list from a while back and fogot about it. Yes.....nice pull back. But, I would like to see move back up towards the 100dma before I buy. I would think that move should be coming soon - just need some confirmaion.
  • Edgarzb: $ALGN @ philharmonic. It could fill the gap, but if you put your stop below 51.82 you will not ride it down. You would be out with a paper cut. If you contiues on it's up trend that is clearly defined on the weekly chart, we may have a nice trade moving forward. Long $ALGN
