    Thanks Dutch

  2. roy Says:

    Hello Rol Lew
    Been waiting for quite some time for this one to pull back. Does not seem to be happening. Is there no competition in that space?

  3. FishFat Says:

    There is a handy tool on the TMX Money website for earnings announcements. On the main TMX Money website click on the “Market Activity” tab. A pulldown menu appears where you will see “Earnings Calendar”. Click on that and you can view a list of the companies posting earnings on a week by week basis. You can limit the display to show “All Exchanges” or select an individual exchange like TSX, TSX Venture, NYSE, NASDAQ or OTC. The list gives information such as whether the earnings will be announced “before open” or “after close” and consensus estimates.

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    Utility stocks and ETFs continue to get trashed. They are oversold with some looking like a buy lately but the trend is still bearish.

    On the flip side is the last major CD Bank finally breaking out over a double top to new highs. Increasing interest rates around the world is having its effect negatively on Utility stocks and positively on Financial stocks.

  5. Rol Lew Says:

    There are many competitors to ISRG, and some have even beaten its 80% return last year, but it appears that they are more volatile also, e.g., MZOR with 4 or 5 pullbacks in its 140% ramp last year.,ICUI,MDT,MZOR,BSX,BDX,BAX,ABT,ALGN,ABMD,PODD,TFX|D|

    Look at the one-year timeframe.

  6. Rol Lew Says:

    and some of the usual suspects…,AABA,CBOE,V,MA,PYPL,AXP,JPM,HVI.TO,|D|

    who can say if today it will all end? 3 hrs & 40 minutes to go……. 🙂

  7. Sandra Says:

    Really tanked today..CJR.B/TO

  8. Ana Says:

    $SPX $ES

    There is a Head and Shoulders that can be seen on the futures chart. My best guess at the moment is 2713.

  9. Sandra Says:

    TECK.B/TO surging but will be brutal on pullback and signal end of mining.

    #1 #2
    ISRG has no meaningful competition at the moment. They are also developing surgical equipment for pulmonary procedures. My next target if MrMarket keeps trucking along is $500, which is about a 25% upside. No divs, but lots of growth.

  11. Larry/ON Says:

    Ominous Signs For Canada – The Trudeau Government’s WTO challenge to the US was far reaching and included complaints on US trade practices with third party countries including China. It was a provocative move at the very point when the Trump Administration is ready to give its’ six month notice of NAFTA departure. This move by Canada increases the odds that Trump leaves NAFTA which would be in line with his tit for tat psychology. Risk is for a considerable fall in $CAD and likely to many Canadian equities when this happens which is predicted before the end of January. CAD is already tanking today.

  12. Sandra Says:

    Thanks for the info.

  13. Sandra Says:


    Two big stories today China loosing interest on US treasuries and US may cancel NAFTA.

  14. Ana Says:

    I think that this is the issue:

  15. Ana Says:


  16. Sandra Says:

    Lot of dividend paying stocks are at support. Wandering if there will be switch to safe heaven again if there is a sell off with all the news going on today.

    Any thoughts?

  17. Sandra Says:

    China is the lucky dog. Benefits from every global move.

  18. Larry/ON Says:

    CP Rail down 3.92% on NYSE – Part of negative trade environment. Any Cdn business doing a lot of trade in US is on the equity hit list.

  19. Muntazir Says:

    Thanks for posting last week re TDW giving 10 free trades. I called & after 90mins on hold got my credit. Thanks again

  20. Rol Lew Says:

    #10 – ISRG – Thanks Dutch for the “warning”- I will try to hang on this time. I jumped ship in Dec, with a nice gain – but that was the wrong move. (Hindsight!)

  21. dutchcanuck Says:

    Those companies you mentioned are not competitors yet altho they are in the medical field.
    A few of these cos are trying to get into the robotics space, but have not as yet succeeded to get into ISRG’s specialties with any degree of success. The Da Vinci robot is unique and patent protected. The most serious threat will come from Medtronic/JNJ as they have the funds necessary to develop, design and mamufacture a competitive product, but ISRG has quite a moat at this time.I am quite close to this company having done work for them in the past, and their management team is sterling. Just my opinion.
