Intuitive Surgical: 1 Thing Citron Got Right

By now every Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG  ) investor is aware of "the report." Of course, that's a reference to the well-structured bear thesis laid out by Citron Research last month, clobbering shares of the medical robotics giant in the process.

Today, however, shareholders are marching to the beat of a different drum. After Intuitive far exceeded analyst expectations and issued equally strong guidance, Citron's stance is being rejected.

In this video, Motley Fool health care bureau chief Brenton Flynn takes a closer look at Citron's points in the context of this quarter's Intuitive Surgical earnings report, including one area where he and Citron tend to agree.

    I love how you continually prop up Citron. It is starting to be clear you are just a mouth piece for them. I'm done clicking on your articles and your advertisements for your "premium research reports". I'm sure I can get the exact same info on the Citron website.
