I'm a simple man, so I'm going to say this simply.
Anyone promising 100% certainty of profit on the stock market, is only talking about himself when you hand him your money.
But, on rare occasions, there are stocks which have such a high probability of a successful launch, that to ignore them is the same as throwing away money before it
is in your hands.
Today, one of those stocks is launching. Materialise, pending symbol: MTLS
To the big questions:
Who: This is a Belgian 3D printing company
What: They sell software licenses and hardware as well as produce specific products from their own equipment. Major companies and figures have made use of their services.
Why: They are making an initial public offering in order to expand their company into new markets, push their R&D, and acquire competing interests.
Where: They have sold world wide and have serious potential to expand even further.
When: Initial offering is today. I admit I'm posting this late to increase my chances of buying in at the opening price.
How: Tech stocks have had, I admit, some rough opening days. But companies that have existed for extended periods of time (check) which have increasing sales (check), a diverse clientele with no single contract reliance (check and check) an asset valuation far exceeding their liabilities (check) an experienced management team (check) and an international market (check), together in a growing industry seeing increasing uses in unexpected places (check), has a distinct tendency to perform well. Will this opening go from its initial twelve to fourteen dollar price up to fifty or sixty in an afternoon? I doubt it. With that being said though, I will not be surprised in a rise of three to five dollars per share as the trading day wears on and more attention is given by heavy traders.
So with that in mind, hopefully by the time you have read this, I will have already bought in.
