They are. They are about $350mm and $250 mm net debt (which they use to buy back stock), or 1/10x revenue.
Forget the love or hate for this thing, this is the best short squeeze candidate in a while. And quite frankly at $5.50 ex cash, it's got a shot. At this point all there is left to do is cover. That could take weeks,
Eventually it sounds interesting
That would make the global mkts interesting
Tonite could be very interesting across China and Europe as they look at AAPL.
What were those numbers that blew him away? And what were they in % terms yoy? I didn't hear specifics.
Still hard to enter at this price w/ those numbers.
Tried to answer this twice with a paste. Won't take it. Short version.
1. Yes or NO
2. They can
3. Yes. If needed. ""We have worked with Dr. Berger to help pre-plan a wide range of surgeries," says Mike Rensberger, who spearheads 3D Systems’ VSP Reconstruction services, part of the company's 3D healthcare offerings. "We've assisted with everything from corrective jaw surgery to maxillofacial trauma to fibula free flaps like Blessing's case."
That's what makes a market. Augmented And Virtual Reality To Hit $150 Billion, Disrupting Mobile By 2020. Medical applications for AR at $1-2B could grow at 100% for a decade. Virtual surgical planning is quickly becoming a standard of care for orthognathics and reconstructive maxillofacial surgeries. DDD is positioned very well, perhaps the lead position. If their team makes the right decisons via RD, they could control this breakout space, and imitate what ISRG/DaVinci did with robotic surgery.
The street will eventually price this in to this stock. The other VR plays like FB, AAPL, SNE, MSFT and GOOG are slightly larger. Here you have a $1B co with one of the best 3D printing platforms, no debt, $1.60 cash and catering to what will be an enormous medical market.

Shame. I like this company, but there will be no bounce in forseeable future.

Criminal can put a company effectively out of business, esp one with debt.
Not a bad strategy. Gives them a link into data and receiving a valuation like a data collector/provider like FitBit, etc..
No. Insurance companies via wellness programs are looking at giving you a free FitBit or similar device. That is driving Fitbit.
For the first time ever in the United States, a life insurance company is offering a discount -- if you're willing to let it track your health, location and body.
It was only a matter of time.
It's increasingly popular to wear a fitness tracker that measures your footsteps, heart rate or body movements. Now, the life insurance company John Hancock is offering deal if you'll wear one: 15% off in some cases.
The company unveiled its optional, new program Wednesday morning. John Hancock is partnering with Vitality, which many people probably know as one of those work-related wellness programs. The program is available in 30 states.
If you sign up for this, John Hancock will send you a free Fitbit monitor. That's a tiny, pill-shaped device that some people wear in sleek-looking bracelets to track how far they walk/run, the calories burned, and the quality of sleep.
That means the insurance company would know exactly when a customer does a sit-up, how far she runs -- or when she's skipped the gym for a few days.
