President Obama and Britney Spears Go 3-D: Should You?

In two very disparate and very visible media mentions, the 3-D printing industry got two major plugs recently: one from and Britney Spears' music video for the hit single "Scream and Shout" and one from President Obama's State of the Union address last night. In the president's speech, he not only discusses his efforts to bolster support for new manufacturing technology in the U.S., but mentions the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, or NAMII, by name. In this video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos discusses the 3-D printing industry, what the future demand for these stocks is going to look like, and why the story of these stocks is one that will play out over a much longer timeline.

3D Systems is at the leading edge of a disruptive technological revolution, with the broadest portfolio of 3-D printers in the industry. However, despite years of earnings growth, 3D Systems' share price has risen even faster, and today the company sports a dizzying valuation. To help investors decide whether the future of additive manufacturing is bright enough to justify the lofty price tag on the company's shares, The Motley Fool has compiled a premium research report on whether 3D Systems is a buy right now. In our report, we take a close look at 3D Systems' opportunities, risks, and critical factors for growth. You'll also find reasons to buy or sell, and receive a full year of analyst updates with the report. To start reading, simply click here now for instant access.
