In the following video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos takes a question from a Motley Fool reader on Facebook, who asks: "I have researched 3D additive printing and have a small amount of money to invest as part of my 'more aggressive-more speculative' investment strategy. I already have a small position in Dassault Systems because I believe they have a good handle on the software, but I would like to invest in a hardware and services provider. I have looked at Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS ) , 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD ) and ExOne (NASDAQ: XONE ) , but all seem to be about the same as playing red or black on the roulette wheel. Now that I know a little bit about 3D printing and believe it has the potential to be a major 'game-changer,' how do I get on board?"
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.
