I have found my detractors here but I'm honest. I just say what I think.
I started listening to the shorts and my cousin's husband which does surgery in this space. Without the acceleration in placements it's game over. I suggested that the company find a buyer. Those holding the stock today going forward would in my opinion in retrospect have wanted to support me.
@ $13.49/share the betting is we beat earnings estimates, and maybe by a significant amount with an encouraging increase in units sold (enough to make management's estimates plausible). Pull-back suggests reality has set in. We can have a decent quarter and still this beast may go down from here.
MAKO slightly missed for Q1 and the stock went UP. No pre-announce bodes well again for the longs. With 2/3 of bots sold in Q3 & Q4, 11 in Q2 would put us on track for the high end of 2013 estimates at 48. 9-10 would put us even or beating Q2 estimates revenue wise. norsemanwam knows this and is bleating with his tail between his gimpy legs.
