Just last month, one of those Fools, keithelane, tapped Intuitive as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

Recent bad press/fears seem to be overblown and are knocking the stock price down. This is still a great company in an absolutely dominant position with no real competition on the radar screen for AT LEAST several more years. Fantastic expected growth over the next several years and the value gets better and better as the P/E has dropped. May be up and down, but long term I really like the pick.

Recently, some investors have questioned Intuitive Surgical's future. However, Intuitive Surgical expert Karl Thiel believes a visible path to long-term growth persists.
