Intuitive Surgical (ISRG -7.5%) is selling off post-earnings. While Q4 results beat estimates, and 2012 revenue growth guidance of 17%-19% (issued during Intuitive's earnings call) is above a 16.5% consensus, the fact Intuitive sported a post-earnings trailing P/E of 39 suggests investors may have been looking for stronger growth. Cautious comments about European demand could also be having an effect.

    This is not pretty at all. It is good that this is a well loved brand name. Although I'm a long term fan of ISRG this is looking toppy. I'd advise skittish short term people to avoid this right now.
