Health Care/ Health Care Equipment
Company announced 2Q earnings last week which exceeded expectations -it managed to increase gross margin by eliminating distributors and sell more directly.
In 2019 Expected revenue +16.5%, EPS + 14.3%, EBITDA margin +3.4 p.p. (38.5%)
In 2020 Expected revenue +23.1%, EPS + 13.7%, EBITDA margin -0.5 p.p. (38.0%)

Stopped on the .618 retrace today but looks like it'll complete the inv H&S pattern to around 550... where:
- there's tons of resistance from last winter's tops
- Elliot wave theory says wave 3 cannot be the shortest wave. Meaning wave 5 will max out at 552.50
- Reversing at around 550 would paint a three drives pattern
Between the healthcare dump, earnings, and recent corrective wave in broader markets, this stock has weathered the storm and looks ready to move up. Whether it's a wave 3 or C, this looks headed for the 50DMA / .5-.618 retrace / on the bullish shark. Those shark fib ratios are spot on... I'm buying the dip all the way to 545.
INTUITIVE SURGICAL has seen a very intense sell off in recent days which does no breed confidence coming into earnings. With a current p/e ratio of 55 the stock is quite expensive but has the catalyst of growth to power it higher. We think it is to risky to long into earnings so maybe see what happens before initiating any position.
