3D Printing Stock Earnings to Watch: DDD vs. SSYS

In this video we take a look at a few 3D printing stocks which are reporting earnings this week. While both have similar fundamentals—including a Zacks Rank #3 and a ‘D’ grade from a fundamental look—there are some stark differences between both of the companies heading into the report. Let’s take a quick look at both below…

3D Systems (DDD)

DDD is still looking to get back to its heyday in early 2014 as shares remain extremely depressed from those highs. It hasn’t helped that the company has seen estimates fall off a cliff, while it has a poor history in earnings season too.

Stratasys (SSYS)

SSYS has also had trouble coming back from its big slump, as shares have seen earnings estimates plunge in recent months. However, SSYS has seen a much better history of outperformance when it comes to beating earnings estimates, so there is still some hope for this 3D printing stock this earnings season.
