Stratasys Ltd. announced today that it has filed its annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission .
Stratasys' (SSYS) Q4 results benefit from strong adoption of its products. However, low margins and headwinds like the U.S. government shutdown and weak automotive market in Europe are overhangs.
In the fourth quarter, the 3D printing company's revenue slipped 1.2% year over year, but adjusted earnings per share jumped 31%.
Fourth Quarter Revenue of $177.1 million and $663.2 million for full year 2018
-- the 3D printing technology company -- fell nearly 14% Thursday afternoon following a mixed earnings report. The company posted adjusted net income for the quarter of $11.3 million that came out to 21 cents per share -- up from 16 cents a share same time the year prior.
After 10 years of selling the products, PADT is spinning of its popular cleaning device for 3D-printed plastic materials into a separate business.
Heading into their fourth-quarter results, two of the largest pure-play 3D printing stocks -- Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) and 3D Systems (NASDAQ:DDD) -- continue to have multiple, strong, positive catalysts. There are signs that these catalysts are taking hold and will positively impact the companies' upcoming Q4 results, further pushing up SSYS stock and DDD stock in the wake of their results.Source: Shutterstock DDD is slated to report its Q4 results today after the market close, while SSYS is scheduled to report its Q4 results on March 7. Major Catalysts for 3D Printing StocksOn its Q3 results conference call, Stratasys noted that it was seeing a "gradual" acceleration of the use of its products by aerospace companies. The company also cited giant defense contractor Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) as one of its customers.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSimilarly, 3D Systems' partnership with military shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII), announced last year, seems to be progressing, as HII produced a 3D-printed component for nuclear ships, 3D printing Industry reported on Jan 30. Meanwhile, on its Q3 conference call, DDD said that in the quarter its "Healthcare revenue increased 14% to $53.1 million with growth across all categories," adding that "we continue to be pleased with the overall demand trends for healthcare." * 9 Best Stocks to Buy on U.S.-China Trade Optimism Importantly, the defense/aerospace and healthcare sectors are both extremely large, lucrative markets.Moreover, given the sectors' need for precision, their highly intricate parts, and their need to frequently change parts due to intense use, the companies of both sectors seem like ideal customers for DDD and SSYS. Assuming that the companies' growth in those sectors was stable or accelerated last quarter, I think that their results will beat analysts' expectations, given the seasonal strength of Q4 and analysts' general pessimism towards 3D printing stocks.As a result, both DDD stock and SSYS stock are likely to rise in the wake of their Q4 results. Signs of a Turnaround That Will Benefit 3D Printing StocksThere are multiple signs that both of these 3D printing stocks should benefit from the companies' ongoing turnaround. In Q3, Stratasys' operating income reached $3.4 million, versus a $6.9 million loss during the same period a year earlier, while its EBITDA jumped to $14.7 million from $9.4 million.Furthermore, its Service Revenue increased 10% YoY and its consumable revenue rose 3% YoY, indicating that its customers are starting to use its products more. Over time, that should lead to higher product revenue as products that are used a great deal are replaced by newer products. The company's consumable revenue should then rise as its customers buy more consumables to use in conjunction with their products.As for DDD, its printer revenue surged 17% YoY in Q3, while its software revenue jumped 8% and its materials revenue rose 2%. Thus, DDD appears, like SSYS, to be entering the beginning of a virtuous cycle of its razor-and-blade model.And in another sign that these two 3D printing stocks are beginning a turnaround, research firm Piper Jaffray at the end of January upgraded SSYS stock and DDD stock to "overweight" from "neutral, The Fly reported.Piper analyst Troy Jensen, a veteran watcher of 3D printing stocks, wrote that his checks indicated that "direct sales of production systems were strong in Q4," while "overall 3D printing demand is improving," The Fly stated. Finally, Jensen contended that 3D Systems' "product positioning" has rebounded. The analyst set a $31 price target on SSYS stock and a $17 price target on DDD stock.As of this writing, Larry Ramer owned shares of DDD stock and SSYS stock.

Bulls and a few likely unwitting bears helped print big gains Wednesday in 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) and Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ:SSYS), courtesy of broker upgrades. But for traders looking to spread their risk among the best stocks in the group, saying goodbye to DDD stock and buying SSYS stock alongside peer Materialise NV (NASDAQ:MTLS) is the better play for printing future profits. Let me explain. A pair of Piper Jaffray upgrades to outperform from neutral for 3D manufacturing equities DDD stock and SSYS stock resulted in hefty gains of 6.33% and 8.03%, respectively, following the analyst Troy Jensen's changes. Behind the ratings move, the he cited improving printing demand, a long-awaited shift to production applications finally beginning to emerge and each company enjoying their best positioning for growth in years. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips But similar size gains in DDD and SSYS well-removed from their intraday highs and comparable rationale for the upgrades doesn't mean this is a durable pairing or the two best stocks to own. It makes buying either name more risky in my estimation. ### 3D Printing Long #1: SSYS Stock For spread traders wanting smarter exposure from the 3D printing space. I'd pick just one: Stratasys. Of course, I'd also buy MTLS stock to complete the position, but more on that in a moment. * 10 Stocks to Sell in February With both 3D Systems and Stratasys on the hardware side of the business, but SSYS stock printing a much stronger price chart and having shed its bearish short interest down to 12% compared to DDD's 23%; the market is already hinting Stratasys is the better-positioned of the two. ### SSYS Stock Weekly Chart Ideally, I'd wait for a trigger above $25.18 in SSYS stock to get long. The buy point represents a breakout above Tuesday's high and a price move back above mid-pivot resistance of $24.70 within the bullish double-bottom base construction. But as part of a spread trade with MTLS stock, an allowance to go long with a 10% stop-loss makes sense. ### 3D Printing Long #2: Materialise NV (MTLS) Belgium-based MTLS stock hasn't enjoyed the notoriety or volatile fortunes and misfortunes of SSYS stock or 3D Systems. But Materialise has earned a reputation for capturing solid growth and profits during a couple rocky years for the industry. * 7 High-Dividend Stocks Yielding More Than 5% (Plus a Bonus) Unlike DDD, MTLS stock also distinguishes itself from its hardware peer Stratasys as it's positioned on the software side of the 3D printing space. This diversification adds to the attractiveness of owning shares and further spreading the industry risk alongside SSYS stock. ### MTLS Stock Weekly Chart Another bonus of buying MTLS stock today as part of a spread position with SSYS stock is that shares have corrected within their uptrend into a nice area of technical support. Shares are currently testing a former cup-shaped base and pair of key Fibonacci levels for support. Again, and similar to Stratasys, it might be tempting to wait on an ideal entry in MTLS stock. But as part of a spread trade where SSYS stock is showing sure signs of good things to come and MTLS is already in a sturdy uptrend and offering investors an opportunity to buy at a smart-looking discount; this pair looks ready for printing future profits today.
