Is It Time to Buy 3D Systems?

In the following video, Jason Moser of Motley Fool One and David Meier of Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio sit down to discuss 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD  ) now that the company has released earnings. While it did miss analysts' lofty growth expectations, which caused a sell-off after earnings were released, the company still delivered a powerhouse quarter, growing its top line by 45%, and nearly doubling printer sales. Our analysts discuss what the major drivers are for this growth, how long it can be expected to continue, and whether this dip in the stock's price represents a buying opportunity.

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.

    Adoption of 3d printing is an issue for DDD but it's coming. However the amount of material suppliers keep growing which is unfavorable for them. This might be the first signal that grow for DDD will never achieve it's desired targets with the current products.

    Raph, if you never try to catch a falling knife, you won't. It's painful when they chop off your toes :)

    Andrew? Could you be more specific about the materials suppliers that are threatening 3D? I'm pretty close on that and I haven't heard a word to support your theory.
