They are pretty useless. One blogger says 3D is going to el zilcho and the same day another says its a great buy for a double over the next year. They haven't got a clue, just like most people here or on Wall Street for that matter. I once talked with a Wall Street trader, he said its a rigged game and the average investor really doesn't have a chance, the insider information that flies around between the players is incredible and the SEC is clueless. Best just to invest with a pro and spread your money around a bit, which is what I do with my serious dough.
It will do more than survive if they get a good CEO that can direct the company properly. Avi bought a bunch of stuff and in that pile there are some good purchases. But there is a lot of stuff that simply needs to be dumped. So we will have the same issue that SSYS has for a while, about a year of write downs. If they are successful with that and they focus on a few good markets, such as medical and industrial, they will do fine. And they can go back to 90 over time. Perhaps a long time, but its feasible.
