Top 10 Growth Stocks To Watch Right Now: Intuitive Surgical Inc.(ISRG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In the healthcare world, one of those has to be the impressive quarterly report from Intuitive Surgical(NASDAQ:ISRG). The company increased its revenue by 25%, and accelerated its sales of the da Vinci robotic surgical systems that made it famous. But it’s not just the expensive hardware that is allowing it to prosper — it’s that every machine needs a steady supply of the disposable instruments and accessories used during its procedures. The Fools consider the recent numbers, the outlook, and the investment thesis for Intuitive Surgical stock. But in the, say, anti-healthcare space, cigarette slingerPhilip Morris International(NYSE:PM) took a big hit as demand slackened in major foreign markets. Sales of its e-cig devices are also not growing the way management had hoped.

Top 10 Growth Stocks To Watch Right Now: Nordstrom Inc.(JWN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    Shares ofNordstrom Inc.(NYSE:JWN) were heading lower today after the department store chain turned in a disappointing first-quarter earnings report with comparable sales coming in lower than expected. As a result, the stock was down 9.2% as of 11:17 a.m. EDT.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Hudson’s Bay’s European operations and its off-price division are probably responsible for the majority of the company’s recent losses. Still, sales have been plummeting at Lord & Taylor in recent years, as the tired chain has lost market share to other retail formats, as well as stronger department stores like Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) and even Macy’s (NYSE:M). Lord & Taylor is almost certainly contributing to its parent company’s ongoing losses.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    On the other hand, comp sales declined at the struggling Lord & Taylor chain, which again failed to keep up with top rival Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN). Comp sales rose 0.7% for Nordstrom’s full-line business last quarter. The Saks OFF 5TH off-price chain struggled, too, with comp sales down 3.5%. (Nordstrom Rack has also had a rough time lately, but it eked out a 0.4% comp sales gain in Q1.) Lastly, Hudson’s Bay’s European operations had another awful quarter, as comp sales plunged 6.6%.
