I used 3d printers from Stratasys years ago in my work as an engineer., probably before most commentators on this board were born. . I love the technology, its really cool, but the application of 3D printing is not much wider han it was when I used it for prototyping. You are fooling yourself if you think this will have widespread use either in the home or for manufacturing. Other than techno nerds like myself, who stack oscilloscopes on top of their dining room table, few will be using this.
Hey the best and brightest guys in the room, the ones that brought you the economic meltdown, downgraded 3M in early Dec at around 125. Ain't it great we have these smart people watching out for us? They are worth every penny of their 10 million dollar salaries and bonuses; they are Masters of the Universe and easily worth pay several hundred times us common folks. They are Gods.
you setting a new standard for irrelevancy. You may as well say this is the new Enron. Well at least you have an original thought. too bad its just so stupid.
when the PC industry was in its infancy and considered a fad for nerds at best, then IBM entered with its PC and companies like Apple, Dell, Compaq, HP etc etc prospered to the high heavens, all because suddenly the PC market was given legitimacy. Even IBM didn't know what they had, farming out the PC work to upstarts like Microsoft. Next thing you knew PCs were pushing the mainframes and mini computers out of business. Soda has now been given permission to soar.
Only those who value their quality of life and health shop at Whole Foods. Hmmm--maybe that's everybody?
the applications for 3D printing are identical to what they always have been--prototyping and limited, extremely limited manufacturing. That will never change--thinking 3D is the future of manufacturing is like thinking your home printer could be used to print USA Today. Yes theoretically it could, but it would take a couple of years to print today's edition. And as for Makerbot causing a real impact--get real. If someone like myself, a consummate tinkerer and nerd, who owns about 25 oscilloscopes, haven't bought one yet, this home market isn't going anywhere soon.
I think you've discovered a new technical trading pattern. If you expand to the 6 month chart the fat guy might not be dead after-all if you know what I mean.
Thanks for the update. I knew we were in for rough times ahead but now your perceptive and well thought out comments confirms it.
How else could you get profound thoughts like this: $TWTR lol $$$ #$%$?? This tweet is just beautiful in its elegant simplicity and insight. The world's great writers throughout history could never express themselves as well. How can we ever read Shakespeare again with nary a witty tweet within the play? Mankind has moved on to the next level, Twitter is easily worth 10 times its $35 Billion valuation in the next 6 months. Rotate money in up to 800.
No. MAS MAS. Why is it that humans have this need to appear smarter and brighter than everyone else? Knocking CNBC and Barrons I guess makes them feel superior. What a joke. The truth is CNBC and Barrons and the commentators here have one thing in common: Equally clueless about predicting the future.
Because PJC beat by nearly 150% last quarter and raised all estimates. Should and will be trading at 55.
Living life causes death. A horrible prospect. CVS should also ban people driving to their stores; accidents cause death. CVS in their new role as arbitor of the public good should lobby against people going to the hospital, no matter how sick they are; hospitals cause 80,000 deaths from infections picked up there every year; but mostly CVS needs to ban independent thought that causes these smokers, for the simple pleasure derived, to go against Big brother and dare to use a legal but politically incorrect substance like tobacco thus bringing on the the wrath of the group-think bores who have nothing better to do with their time now that it's unfashionable to hate Jews.
But some people are even more clueless--meaning you--you must be a financial adviser? To assert projections are not that difficult--gee, thanks for that original thought. I project your self-worth is sadly tied up in posturing "facts" with certitude because you need to feel superior and in control of your environment, all the while oblivious to everyone laughing at you behind your back. Good luck getting over yourself.
All the 3D stocks meandered for years. Essentially same technology I used in my engineering lab in the 90s; same applications. Why so hot now? It's caught the imagination of the general public who don't have a clue: 3D sounds sexy. Will end badly with stock values back to the mean.
