Better Buy: Align Technology vs. Intuitive Surgical
Alex Carchidi, The Motley Fool

Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG) and Align Technology (NASDAQ: ALGN) are on the cutting edge of their respective fields. Given the toll of the coronavirus pandemic, however, these two companies are facing significantly different growth trajectories in the next few years, making one of them a much better buy than the other. Most people may not trust a robot, but they'd probably trust a human surgeon equipped with a few robotic tools, and that's where Intuitive comes in.
