Shares of the robotic surgery company TransEnterix (NYSEMKT:TRXC) ended the day higher by a healthy 12.8%. The catalyst?
The robotic surgery company’s shares perked up in response to a bullish note by RBC Capital analyst Glenn Novarro. Specifically, Novarro stated that the commercial launch of TransEnterix’s newly approved Senhance system should only continue to gain momentum going forward, and the system’s sales should more than double from current levels before year’s end.
TransEnterix’s stock is now up by an impressive 80.5% this month, thanks in large part to Senhance’s better-than-expected commercial launch.

When TransEnterix’s Senhance system was first approved last October, Wall Street wasn’t overly optimistic that the company could effectively compete against Intuitive Surgical’s entrenched da vinci system. Intuitive, after all, has an 18-year head start, and robotic surgery platforms require extensive training to operate and maintain.

U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.
