A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Okay, you made money with your stock investment; now discover the product that makes all the money for Intuitive Surgical/ISRG...

"The Da Vinci Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical/ISRG) is a hulking behemoth of a robot, yet its mechanical hands can perform open heart surgery in the smallest places, with a range of motion far greater than laparoscopic instruments. We watch the Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at UCLA Medical Center join forces with his RoboDoc colleague to perform a complicated multiple bypass surgery."

btw, ISRG shares held at crucial support at ~265, and subsequently rebounded, especially yesterday and so far this morning, due to the company's presentation today (at 10am pst) at the Piper Jaffray Healthcare Conference. Check the company's website for transcripts of its presentation, if interested. (I am!)
