It's always been that way, with so much stock in institutional and insider hands there is a small pool of retail stock ownership out there that might post.
I suspect that in the next 2-4 month there will be a stock split and a dividend raise. This may get some additional attention from retail.
I have shares going back to the IPO (really- well these shares were bought by my dad) and have added over the years as it's been one of the most reliable companies for growth. This gets rediscovered every so often and up she goes.
I was also fortunate buying MAKO when it broke down assuming that they would be taken out - bingo on SYK again!
I was a MAKO guy as well first. However I bought all over the price for MAKO so...did ok but not great. I have a few years for this one. I have some of this and I bought some DIS and some ISRG a while ago. Also have some that turned out to be junk........Don't we all though?
