  • 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.

  • 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 $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.
