2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Intuitive Surgical Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Intuitive Surgical - May 05, 2014

We sold out of the last of long-term holding Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG) Intuitive was one of the great investments in the Fund's history, but we let go of the last remnants of our position as the stock rebounded, and we felt uncertain about the device's utility in some of its new general surgery applications. Intuitive also has a $16 billion market cap on sale (it was $350 million on purchase!), and we need to be cognizant of market cap in our portfolio construction.





From Baron Funds' first quarter 2014 commentary.

Baron Funds Comments on Intuitive Surgical Inc. - Nov 21, 2013

Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG), which sells the da Vinci robotic surgical systems, fell 25.7% in the quarter when results fell short of expectations as growth in procedures slowed and unit placements declined. Hospital admissions have been weak and negative publicity affected the amount of procedures performed. We reduced our position in the stock by half this year, but now believe the stock is oversold and too cheap.

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Baron Funds Comments on Intuitive Surgical Inc. - Nov 06, 2013

Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG) sells the 'da Vinci' robotic surgical system. The company's recent results fell short of expectations because of a slowdown in domestic benign gynecological procedures using da Vinci devices. This, in turn, led to slower than expected overall procedure growth and systems sales; management lowered its full year 2013 guidance as a result. After recognizing significant profits, we trimmed our position in the stock earlier this year because of concerns about the impact that increased focus on cost containment in the healthcare system might have on the company's long- term growth prospects. We continue to own a small position in the Fund.
