    • The Fox: Management unreliable. Listen to the last two conference calls. This is NOT ISRG.

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: ISRG it's not, but it could still double

    • The Fox: I guess. Would you buy it though?

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: Yes - it's likely to work into gap, so it's good for now. If they hit the numbers for Q3, it will likely get through it.

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: I don't think $125K is "big"

    • 1980XLS-2.0: Nov 2010 two insiders each bought about 560K shrs ea for about $9.65 I'll let you do the math from there. One sold 5/2012 for 150% gain

    • The Fox: I don't trust that MAKO won't need to raise money soon. Also, their guidance has been off the last two quarters.

    • The Fox: The only real positive I see is the short interest (over 50%). There is about 7 days worth of covering. Any good news will cause a nice run.

    • The Fox: The article addressed the two big hurdles. Paying for one, and generating enough volume to justify it.

    • Alan Brochstein, CFA: I suspect that MAKO paid for the article! It's that good!
