Butterfly Network Stock – A Play on Portable Ultrasounds

Do as I say, not as I do. We find ourselves guilty of that sometimes. For example, we advise readers to never try and time the market, but we’ll occasionally engage in the practice ourselves. When Alteryx dumped -40%, we couldn’t help but open a position. Sometimes, we’re willing to take on additional risk because […]

Robocath Commercializes Robotic Heart Surgery System

We recently profiled an AI healthcare startup called AliveCor, which has developed machine learning algorithms that turn smartphones into clinical-grade electrocardiogram (ECG) recorders using only a small handheld device. It fit snugly into our ongoing coverage of remote patient monitoring in the Age of Rona. We’ve also written quite a bit about the increasing role […]

Verily Life Sciences Leads Digitization of Healthcare

We recently did a deep dive into the available robotic surgery stocks on the market. The article only considered pure-play companies where a significant portion of their revenues are derived from that particular emerging technology. Otherwise, you may end up with a list of great companies, such as Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), but get little […]

6 Robotic Surgery Stocks for Retail Investors

Earlier this year, we wrote about the increasingly important role of healthcare robotics in smart hospital settings to help cut down on infections, as well as other nasty viruses and bacteria. Service robots can help deliver medications or sanitize hospital rooms, with the goal to reduce contact between human petri dishes in critical care conditions […]

A Large-Cap Diabetes Stock That’s Growing Like Mad

It’s been quite entertaining lately to watch some Americans waddle around whinging about how oppressed they are, when it’s apparent that none of them have ever visited an actual dictatorship. In many of the 50 remaining dictatorships on this planet, people often starve, yet in the U.S. there seems to be too much food available. […]

Aside from destroying the social fabric of our society, Facebook has enabled a whole generation of parents to post endless photos of their little rug rats doing all sorts of nauseatingly cute things. New parents are probably the worst, celebrating the life of their child every few weeks, as if we still lived in the […]

7 Ways Brain-Computer Interface Companies Are Using AI

While we’re still a couple of months out from the release of the final installment of the Star Wars triple trilogy, you can already buy tickets to watch the good guys blow up the Death Star for the fifth or sixth time (we’ve lost count). The 42-year-old franchise has raked in more than $9.3 billion […]

iRhythm Stock – A Play on Cardiac Monitoring and AI

If you took all the blood vessels in an adult human and laid them out in a single line it would stretch to almost 100,000 miles, enough to circle the entire globe four times. Imagine designing a pump to push liquid through that massive nest of blood vessels and you’ll end up with a newfound […]

A Bionic Pancreas that Uses Machine Learning for Good

Former Vice President Al Gore was back in the news this month, raising millions for a new campaign. No, not the one crowded with 22 candidates and counting. His Generation Investment Management firm just raised $1 billion for what those who know anything about impact investing might call a do-gooder fund. Socially responsible investing, which […]

Robotic Pills That Replace Biologic Injections

If you have Internet access that allows you to read this article, then you’ve probably had an injection at some point in your life. According to the World Health Organization, there are 16 billion injections that take place every year in developing and transitional countries. Of those injections, 90% are therapeutic, 5% are given for […]
