    Sales great, profits great, more and more adopters. Seems quite a value priced equity at present. Hip & knee replacements are getting almost as common as root canals. The Makoplasty robotic system in minimally invasive, faster recovery, and bottom line for hospitals.....more volume!

    Mako will either be the one everyone will say, "Remember when MAKO was $38" (like AAPL) or get bought by competitor at a premium to stockholders. Either way I am long on this one.

    Agreed. I was able to only add a little bit of MAKO to my wife's portfolio at the beginning of the year, and I'd like to add more to mine, but I just don't have the dry powder at the moment. I believe this company is destined to shoot up (or get scooped up), but I (selfishly) hope the price stays relatively where it is for a little while so I can grab some more before that happens!
