Why 3-D Printing Stocks Could Have a Volatile Week

Shares of 3-D Printing companies had a wild ride at the beginning of the week. Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS  ) and ExOne (NASDAQ: XONE  ) shares were both down by as much 10% Monday, while shareholders of 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD  ) watched their holdings drop as much as 8%.

In this video, Motley Fool contributor Brian Stoffel explains what caused the drop, and why long-term investors need not worry about recent volatility.

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 the stock today.

    Quick note: "Today" was when the video was filmed, Monday, June 4th. Also, at the very beginning, I said "Objet" when I should have said "ExOne"
