11:59 EDTISRG, NVDQ, SYKIntuitive Surgical climbs after new surgical system debuts
Shares of surgical instrument and accessory maker Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) are climbing after the company announced the FDA cleared the U.S introduction of its new da Vinci Xi Surgical System. WHAT'S NEW: Intuitive Surgical introduced the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, which it says has broader capabilities than prior generations of its prior generation da Vinci System. Intuitive said it designed the new da Vinci Xi System with the goal of further advancing the technology used in minimally invasive surgery for complex diseases and conditions in gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac, and general surgery. ANALYST OPINON: Research firm Leerink sees today's news as a positive for Intuitive Surgical, but said it is uncertain exactly how many incremental system sales the da Vinci XI Surgical system will fuel and whether the features of Intuitive's new robot will lead to increased utilization into new surgery areas. The firm keeps the stock at a Market Perform rating. JPMorgan responded to the news by raising its price target on Intuitive Surgical to $500 from $475. JPMorgan said it views the new system as a significant positive that has the potential to both drive a replacement cycle and further increase penetration and utilization of the company's products within hospitals. PRICE ACTION: Near midday, shares of Intuitive Surgical were up about $39, or 8.9%, to $477. OTHERS TO WATCH: Novadaq (NVDQ), which sells consoles for Intuitive Surgical's robotic systems, rose 2.2% to $22.77. Shares of Stryker (SYK), which previously acquired robotic surgery systems maker MAKO Surgical, were little changed near noon.
