    Bought in 5 years ago in the mid 30s. Believing the next 5 years will be just as strong. America is aging and hearts are growing weaker.

    Is this the move some of us have been waiting for or are the markets still to choppy?
    Quick story: I bought in around $68 with more ammo available but never used any, just a couple weeks ago. It has floated around these prices for a bit and I was waiting for it to make a move. I missed the daily move upwards but this seems like big news for a company that is very well managed. I want to add more shares but I would also like to know the sentiment of the long positions. Is the China and settlement news as big as I hope?

    I suspect the recent run up in the stock is due to the upcoming release of PARTNER III data for aortic valve replacement in low risk patients. This will increase the patient pool for aortic valve replacement by several fold and render conventional read - surgical AVR all but obsolete. which would you pick 4 week recovery or 4 day recovery. This is underappreciated by the retail investor but well known by the institutional investors. Good luck

    I work in the heart surgery business now for 26 years, involved with 4000 procedures , and I can tell you I bought $400,000 worth of this stock. Of course, hope I'm not wrong right? It takes a long time to get a valve to market, and the Edwards Sapien TAVR valve has superb market share and results. We did 15, then 50 and then 150 last year. Patients are learning about it , and that's what Mick Jagger got. I have great confidence in this stock, and also Medtronic, another holding. I bought in EW at 190, and again at 230. I don't think in 5 years I'll be doing Aortic Valve Replacements, just repairs or combination procedures if the heart is already going to be exposed. Also, the newer coatings on all valves are so much improved from the 80's and 90's one can expect a valve to last your lifetime. EW is also a really good company with lots of other product lines. I feel the same way as I did about Intuitive Surgical.

    Proxy statement wants increase in shares to effect a 3:1 stock split. Is this a good idea? I know it should not make any difference, but not many companies are splitting their shares today. Any opinions appreciated.

    I've dedicated about 5% of my portfolio to EW for several years and wish I'd have increased that, no doubt, but the high P/E held me back. Help me out folks; Can this company protect its patent or proprietary advantage moving forward? It seems counterintuitive to pay triple my original price but this thing seems to only gain momentum and market share. Thanks.

    No major increase in the stock price in the last 6 months. Any possible reasons?

    Stock usually drops after earning and starts to rise within a week - will be in the 170-180 range by the end of the year.
    One of the great medical innovative companies

    Only 6 months to the release of the culmination of the TAVR trials EARLY TAVR which studies aortic valve replacement percutaneously in patients who have no symptoms i.e no fainting, chest pain or congestive heart failure. Looking at what happened with PARTNER I: 11$ - 16$ (Oct 2010), PARTNER II: 19 - 38 dollars (Apr 2016), and most recently PARTNER III (detailed below in the conversations). EARLY TAVR's release is the last chance investors may get to see a meteoric jump in EW. While growth and profits will continue - it would be wise not to miss this catalyst in December 2021. Good luck.

    How many of you have been to the Edward’s Corperate co? They have a soccer field in the center of the building . Plus they are remodeling this building to be state of the art facilities.
