    XONE & 5 Machines is alot...

    Their machines cost $500,000 and are intended for Industrial Corporations, like Catepillar, Ford, etc. A year ago, they sold zero machines. That's a vast improvement. And personally, I don't care for them, as I feel their focus is too narrow. Get a life shorts. This news is not going to crush DDD. If anything, this news will help DDD form the "Handle" to our cup and handle formation. And that's the worst case scenario. I'll see you in the mid $50's by month end.

    • DDD real winner, next SSYS, XONE earnings not so good

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Spot on again....thanks. There are winners and there are losers. SSYS and DDD are winners...XONE is a company living off the 3D market potential. It didn't, and doesn't deserve it's place with the BIG boys.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • This tune was sung the last time around. DDD released what would be considered good year end earnings for 2012. Yet it got taken down. It took a lot of drop for shareholders to wakeup to the music that its not going up for quite some time. And it didnt. It had the worst run in Q1 while Q1 had a historic quarter for the Dow.

      This stock has now overreached again into that upside. XONE's lackluster sale serves to consolidate the fact 3D printers are not going to be as mainstream as one would like. Not for the 4-5 year horizon until new technologies come out that revolutionizes the field. Importance for real industrial applications is precision and the ability to mass produce parts. First tolerance is terrible for 3D printed parts and mass production capabilities are not there as 3D printing is inherently serial in nature. So you need to scale it up and that makes it ineffective. Traditional CNC machines are still the answer.

      As for their upcomming shareholder meeting. Most of it is a wash but the main takeway to note is the increase of authorized shares. This will load up their truck to make more acquisitions that costs them nothing. All it takes is for them to print new shares and hand them out. THis continues to dilute existing shareholders. Then it will get to a point in a years time where the 3D space is fully occupied. The only acquisitions or mergers left are the big 2/3 that is SSYS and XONE and that is not going to happen anytime soon. Sooner or later, margins for DDD might decrease as they are too cost heavy. Margins fall and they shave off assets and then this gets beat down to the $20s.
