ExOne Co Earnings Preview: 3 Key Areas You Have to Watch

M-Flex: ExOne Company

The ExOne Co (NASDAQ: XONE  ) is set to report earnings this Wednesday, and investors could be in for a wild ride if the company reports any surprises. With high-growth companies like ExOne, long-term investors need to be careful not to get sucked into the manic quarterly gyrations that quarterly results can lead to. 

Wall Street is expecting $0.01 EPS non-GAAP on revenue of $12.2 million, but the big focus will be on guidance for the upcoming year. The company's lower revised guidance last quarter led to a precipitous sell-off after its second-quarter earnings. If guidance disappoints again, the results could get ugly for the stock.

Guidance and Wall Street estimates aside, investors really need to focus on three key areas determining the company's future: service centers, barriers to customer purchases, and the company's all new M-Flex printer. In the video below, Motley Fool analyst Blake Bos dives into these areas and tells investors exactly what they should be focusing on before earnings.
