Can Someone Please Cogently Explain Why Hansen's Stock Has Suddenly Risen So Much?
There is no cogent explanation for anything on HANSEN MEDICAL. Its very existence rests on the chimera of latching onto another Intuitive Surgical. Which is pretty unlikely. I suggest you buy, instead, a potpourri of software stocks; perhaps you'll latch onto the next Microsoft. Good luck.
MY understanding is that the Tooth Fairy, Frosty the Snowman, and the Easter Bunny are ALL long.
Also, Tinkerbell has sprinkled fairy dust on the product line! Watch it fly off the shelf now!
Which is all more likely than ISRG buying at this level.
Please pay attention to the fundamentals. Capital sales, recurring revs, and market acceptance of the tech pretty much paint a complete picture.
Coming soon: Q4 and 'FY12 results. My prediction: Same old same old: stagnant capital equip sales and declining utilization rates, with another influx of one time cash (sale of IP) again clouding the picture and prolonging the inevitable.
