Healthcare Stock Picks 2016 -
Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG) ($523) - 2016 is starting off with a bang and ISRG
is holding the $500 level. If ISRG drops into the low $400's in 2016, the stock becomes a strong buy. I first
discovered ISRG back in 2001 at $14 after it's IPO. This company was predicted to be huge and shares quickly skyrocketed
after the Da Vinci was accepted in the medical world. ISRG stock has gone sideways for the past four years and 2016
could be the break out year we've been waiting for. As always, the key will be earnings.
