    Surely the interesting point is the one fact advanced (aging demographic and obesity = joint replacement) in relation to price. To talk about the first and not the second is superficial. I never tire of asking RB-type TMF stock proponents (who are often, even usually right) a legitimate question they hate and fear (it is never, and I repeat never, answered): what would you not pay for (MAKO, AMZN, NFLX, LULU, CMG etc. etc.?) Interesting eh? I know you would not pay anything unless you are mad. So: valuation parameters please. At what level of what ratio would MAKO be unattractive?
