Novadaq Reports First Positive Earnings Quarter & Stock Ends Day at $12.24 In Heavy Volume
I would agree that the company seems positioned to report a much improved 4th quarter across the board. There is however one area that worries me. The short position has grown rapidly over the past 6 months from only 13,000 shares in July of 2012 to 1,066,000 on January 15th. These folks will do everything in their power to undercut the pps tomorrow. On the other hand, the RSI currently stands at 47 halfway between being overbought and oversold. It will also be interesting to see how much kit sales grew in the 4th quarter.
The modelling I use projected 37% revenue growth vs 37% actual, 152 units vs 135 (~150 shipped according to CC). ISRG installed ~12 on existing machines from inventory. The progress on PinPoint (2 sales & marketing up to 15) was good with cash drain in next 6 months but contributions in second half (CC comment to question & answer inquiry), as well as more opaque progress on LUNA. All in all just about what expected. So why did the stock not respond? My wife hates the impacts of short sellers. You may have put your finger on it endo. Like ISRG in the early days, short sellers have little long term impact. Management stated "40% plus growth for years to come are expected".
