Buy your core position and never sell, trade on dips. That means buy when stock gets about 5% down from current levels and sell if you don't think you can hold long term when stock makes a run to upside. You will generate a much larger position that way taking shares away from traders or people that have to sell for some reason or another.
ITS IRONY that you think the company will no longer grow, since they just increase sales and procedure volume, do you even read the press releases? Even if they just sell 5 machines a quarter that would still be OK as long as procedure volume picks up. Its hard for me to believe that with them acquiring their competitor that they are not going to leverage that acquisition to sell more machines or even sell their implants to them. If anyone thinks this company with $500,000,000 in assets doesn't realize that opportunity, they need brain surgery.
Irony, this is not to slam you in any way. But, if did not believe in a company there is no way I would hold onto it. With the loss you have taken I have to believe it will be a good while for you to recoup the money.
Mako was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY overpriced throughout most of 2011 and half of 2012.
If you need to get to 25 in the next year I am here to tell you brother, it ain't likely.
If you are looking to go from 25 to 45-60 in the next 2-3, well that is possible. The odds of the market diving in the next 2-3 years are also possible, so know where you sit with this or any other stock before you move it or stay.
