3 Big Winners This Week

In the following video, Motley Fool research analyst John Reeves talks about three companies that made major gains this week. He tells us how Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) shares rose 7% after a strong earnings report, explains why Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG  ) , maker of the da Vinci robotic system, was up 14% for the week, and takes a look at Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX  ) , which jumped 66% after Wednesday's quarterly earnings report took Wall Street by surprise.

With 2 million new U.S. subscribers in the last quarter alone, is Netflix finally back on track? Its precipitous drop in share price since the summer of 2011 had caused many shareholders to lose hope, and while the company's first-mover status is often viewed as a competitive advantage, the opportunities in streaming media have brought some deep-pocketed rivals looking for their piece of a growing pie. What steps is Netflix taking to fend off this burgeoning competition, and will its international growth aspirations really pay off? These are must-know issues for investors, which is why The Motley Fool has released a premium research report on Netflix. Inside, you'll learn about the key opportunities and risks facing the company, as well as reasons to buy or sell the stock. And as an added bonus, you'll receive a full year of FREE updates as key news hits, so don't miss out -- simply click here now to claim your copy today.

    I am a big fan of investing in medical related businesses. I own shares in several publicly traded medical businesses. One of my favorites is ISRG (Intuitive Surgical) which I initially purchased years ago at $5 per share (before a 2-for-1 reverse split). ISRG, which produces the "da vinci" robotic operating machine closed Friday at $577.82. Key to good investments include patented products which appear to have a big demand. Most hospitals through our World own one or several da vinci robotic operating machines which cost about $1.5 million and need supplies from ISRG which are used in each operation. as a resultof its patented protected product, sales and operating income increase about 30% per comparable quarter consistdently.
