Is Wall Street Right About Intuitive Surgical?

While Intuitive Surgical has long been a Motley Fool favorite and a darling of the stock market, it has been a difficult month for the stock, coming down 5% and being targeted by short seller Citron Research. In this video, Motley Fool health care analyst David Williamson takes us through Wall Street's bullish stance on the stock, but also how Intuitive Surgical could be negatively affected by the pressure to lower health care costs.

Despite its recent sell-off this month, Intuitive Surgical has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 1,002.94% since he recommended it in March 2005. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up.
