If you sold MAKO Surgical after its acquisition announcement, consider Stryker, Intuitive Surgical, iRobot, or Mazor Robotics to put your profits to work.

Two weeks ago, shares of MAKO Surgical (MAKO.DL) skyrocketed more than 80% after the company announced it had agreed to be acquired by Stryker Corporation (SYK 0.65%) for $30 per share, or roughly $1.65 billion in cash.

Of course, you can't blame many shareholders for deciding to take profits following the pop.

However, if you happen to be one of those lucky investors, chances are you're now looking for another promising place to put that money to work now that MAKO's no longer an option.

In the following video, Fool contributor Steve Symington provides four stocks that former MAKO investors might consider buying with their newly won riches.
