    Stock No. 3: Let’s go back to the well. So, April last year what was the “I?” Quick quiz at home? That’s right. It was Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG). I own the company, and in front of my gathered fellow Heels last week, I put Intuitive Surgical on this list, as well, so I present it for you again today. It reminds us to continue to add to our winners. It was a winner a year ago. It had a three for one stock split, something that I don’t personally care about. I don’t think we should spend a lot of time talking about stock splits. I realize some people think they’re exciting or are confused by them.

    A lot has changed since then, however. J.C. Penney badly underperformed its own comparable sales target in the second half of 2016, as comparable sales fell instead of hitting the 3-4% mark the company had projected. Its peers continued to struggle — Macy’s (NYSE:M), Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS), and Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) all reported declining comps in the fourth quarter, and Macy’s said last year it would close 100 stores.
