Investors Business Daily reports that most analysts are forecasting an uptick for Stratasys , but also reports that a Piper Jaffray analyst is less excited after a survey the firm conducted with 62 resellers. Brian Deagon, reporter at Investor’s Business Daily, tweeted: “Beleaguered 3D printer maker Stratasys reports Q2 earns Thursday. Is this the bottom?… $SSYS $DDD”
Do we then agree with IBD?
Some of the experts predict an optimistic and useful “what to expect” view of 3D Printing Stock Earnings Season – And look at Stratasys, 3D Systems, VoxelJet & Exone.
Overall, despite individual company performance, or lack thereof, there still is an upside in the 3D printing market. We would have to add 3D scanning and 3D design to the equation. The investment opportunity may come by buying stock in companies that use the technology versus only in those who manufacture the printers, for now.
Bottom line? Don’t get fooled by correction. The industry will grow. Most managers will have to get a song business education to succeed.
