Yes, I'm thinking about 4%. What's nice is that this company has great positive cash flow. So, while they give back, it will still grow by increasing it's assets even if it's not necessarily growing revenue.
If the dividend is to be 50% of net income for the year payable in first quarter of 2015, what would a good estimate be? Guessing, it could range between 20-24 cents, making the current yield between 3.5% and 4.3%.
Is that a reasonable guesstimate and is there a 15% Israeli withholding tax at the source?
For a couple of years, 3D printing technology, and 3D printers in particular, have been gaining a lot of attention, but until recently they weren't considered a market of their own.
This has now changed. With so many companies releasing full lines of 3D printers, and with 3D printing services and even gradual courses being offered for teaching the use of this technology, the time has come for the world to recognize this field for what it is.
Stratasys, MakerBot, Organovo, and Inno3D are just a few names in this sector, and there are plenty of freelancers who have invented their own contraptions.
Then there are the many research efforts involving additive manufacturing, like transplantable organs, joint replacements, 3D printed batteries, etc.
It's no wonder that Gartner, one of the world's major market analysts, has started to conduct studies on this matter.
Its recent press release states that, in 2015, the shipments of 3D printers will reach 217,350 units, double what they were in 2014. And by 2018, the number should grow to 2.3 million or so. An impressive figure, to be sure.
Summary: 3D printing goes mainstream in the enterprise as the returns are too promising. Gartner's top strategic technologies in 2015 revolve around cloud, Internet of everything and computing everywhere.

I find it interesting how, it takes most of a trading day for me to sell 300 shares, but a fund can unload 250,000 shares of this stock in a short time period. I know, for every sale, there is a buyer. So, it seems that there must be a coordinated effort to bring share price down. I am still long, despite short term volatility. Fundamentals are still intact, as far as I can see through my research.
One more thing: No debt, good products, innovative team, good cash, excellent margin for this sector... Wealth is being happy with what you have... you have a very stable company
Relax!! Read a book, hit the beach, buy some more... This C's pps is predictable... This C has a knack for leaping when the market is selling off... it works both ways :). Think longer term - it'll pay for all your christmas presents easily...
Bubble market with phony companies soaring and this company with REAL products that actually has good earnings - Stock goes straight down. We live in strange times
The company generates free cash flow but hasn't generated any growth in the last three years. With no growth you get no multiple expansion.
The stock is worth what is. It's what is called a "value trap". Small company, small earnings, overseas and no growth.
The company would be smart to use its cash to make accretive acquisitions. Paying a dividend as they announced shows that management has no plans to ramp up earnings materially.
that's a steal of a price...i'm avg'd in at 7.24 and I thought I had a good deal only to see if fall over the last six months. All the research and articles i've read said this should be a mid 20's stock. we're just gonna have to be patient.
Stocks do this from time to time... Like Buffet says; there is no valuation for stocks, every minute of every day they are worth a different amount, eventually a stock reaches its true valuation only to move up or down a penny or two... just be patient, trust in your research, chart its movements and buy more when you think its undervalued.
Just when I think this stock is headed north for good. I find it slipping agian. I was dumbfounded when it came back down from 10 to almost 5. This last week 5 days have been very odd also. Not much volume...they reported good numbers previously. I'm wanting to add more shares but just can't figure out why it heads significant lower when all aspects say it should be going north. Any takers on an explanation?
Cimatron does not make 3D printing technology - they make some 3D printing support software. HP would probably buy an actual 3D printer hardware company. Hey, I like Cimatron but HP will not be buying it.
