Well I misjudged ddd when I thought there was a short squeeze going to happen for a few days. Who knew it would be only one day. I guess we missed the boat.
AMZN is teaching the market, today, that the time is past for Mega PE "growth stories". Guys who write outta money PUTs can get lucky for awhile, but at some point pretty much every stock ends up at PE 10-30 on some real gaap E. JMO, but anybody long on high PE, bubbly stuff like nflx, ddd, ssys, amzn, better be watching amzn for clues. I'd bet my 3D Plastic Pony on that!
So true. But at least she has her attention fix for the day. Now she can go to her favorite dive bar and, with confidence, say, "Don't you know who I am?!?"
we did a nice drop, $58 to $43, from April 4 to April 29, when the last GREAT DDD E report came out. So honestly, I have no trouble expecting this next Great 10Q to do $53 to $43, maybe even $39 if I get extra lucky. Then the guy who wrote "no brainer" $50s gets to buy me a car. But this is gambling, no certainty until 10Q day. My bet is the Hype Machine is running outta juice, and that no great 10Q can be great enuf.
bio companies. They r starting to make some real noise. I own many shares and so far they have been very good to me. Hope it lasts. I see ONVO at $12 to $16 in the next few months. Buy 5000 share and make some money while you wait for DDD to catch fire
You are correct it was a terrible ER for AMAVF.
On another note you need to look at ARCM.ST as PDB is right the company is more than a pink sheet it trades Stockholm it cannot trade on 2 major indexes that is why it is an OTC here.
Also there are more than publicly traded 3D printer companies many are private and if GE were to buy a company I would think they would buy a private company as this would be the cheapest route...
There are only two companies GE is looking to for printers, DDD and AMAVF. Source is Motley Fool.
AMAVF is an over the counter traded stock in the USA. (pink sheets)
In an interview an AMAVF spokesperson with Motley Fool the AMAVF admits it technology is faster but is not as precise as the Direct printing process. He states that they are using a newer technology but for now their process is only faster, not more precise.
Arcam's Q2 results
Here are the highlights:
•Revenue decreased by 14.6% to 46.1 million Swedish krona (MSEK), or about $6.75 million, from 54 MSEK in the year-ago period.
•Net income plummeted 95% to 400,000 Swedish krona (SEK), or about $58,568, from 7.5 MSEK.
•Earnings per share dropped to 0.02 SEK, or about $0.003, from 0.47 SEK, or about $0.07. (Note: These numbers should be very close. Arcam only list EPS (and certain other data) for the six-month period, so quarterly EPS (and other data) has to be calculated. Additionally, the number of shares changed, so there were a couple calculations involved. At a minimum, Arcam should release its quarterly EPS on its quarterly earnings releases, as is customary. Further, it would also be a plus if the company included equivalent U.S. dollars in its financial releases. (The company would draw more U.S. investors, in my opinion, if it didn't make folks jump through hoops to obtain basic data.)
•Four (4) electron beam melting systems were delivered versus seven (7) in the year-ago period.
There's no way to spin the quarterly financial results as anything but weak. Revenue was down somewhat, earnings were down even more (which means that margins contracted), and the company delivered only four 3-D printers, three fewer than in the second quarter of 2013.
Correct for the most part. But GE also says it wants to put in printers iinto its separate research facilitiy so some additional printers might also be made. Also don't forget part of the announcement suggested GE wanted to include some EBM printers which only Arcam cannot supply.
Hope its a composite and DDD gets a big part but remember EOS right now is GE's most prevalent supplier. As the demand for engine parts goes up, both original and resupply, looks good for the sector especially as others join the mfg parade.
Wow, totally wrong on two major points. Almost as incredible as Bosie.
FACT CHECK: Arcam is fully accredited on the Swedish exchange, has a USA ADR and sells its printers quite expensively thank you. It is the only printer company which uses EBM technology which GE says it wants to use so looks well positioned to get some orders especially since GE affilitates use Arcam printers now.
Yes DDD has a good shot, the only kernel of correctness In your post.
So Arcam and DDD are the only printing companies that GE can use. Wrong grasshopper. What about EOS which now supplies most of GE's printers and is said to be the leading contender.
Why does a poster so wrong on all fronts bother to post.
A more accurate post would be that EOS, DDD, Arcam and what is it century/?? that GE is also testing have the best shots at the GE order and I for one hope its a composite because except for the GE desire for EBM which only arcam can supply, IMHO the frontrunner right now is EOS simply because GE is not using its printers primarily. We shall see
AMAVF technology is also different than DDD. It is slower and not as precise. A jet fuel nozzle for a jet engine would require the most precise engineering for obvious reasons.
There are only two companies that have printers that can print using the metals needed for the jet engine fuel nozzles. They are DDD and AMAVF. AMAVF is listed on the pink sheets so I can't imagine investing in a company with those obvious issues. But who knows, they might have nothing to lose by selling their units at cut throat prices.
My bet is on DDD. Also SSYS is not in the hunt as they do not have printers capable of handling the materials required for the production of the jet nozzles.
It isn't a 50 million dollar investment in 3D printers. The contract is for ten printers by the end of 2014 and an option for up to 50 total printers overall. The 50 million is for the entire complex and the printer is a small part focused on jet fuel nozzles. (20 nozzles in each in each engine)
Exactly before the market opened you stated it would go to the 4 day MA in the 54.50s then once it started diving you said it would dive... DUH you already saw it dive and changed your answer.
I was long from 54 to 69 YES that was an uptrend of almost 30%!
I then POSTED I sold last week close to 58 because the trend changed again!
