Stocks to Watch: ExOne and FTD Companies, Inc.

In this segment from Tuesday's Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Mike Olsen each pick one stock they'll be watching closely in the week ahead. Jason looks at newcomer to the 3-D printing space ExOne (NASDAQ: XONE  ) , known for its focus on commercial rather than consumer printers, as well as its metal printing capabilities. Meanwhile, Mike looks at FTD Companies, Inc.  (NASDAQ: FTD  ) , and tells investors why this network of florists is a fundamentally misunderstood retailer, with some very enticing share buybacks on the horizon.

Could 3-D printing change the manufacturing landscape forever?
For the first time since the early days of this country, we're in a position to dominate the global manufacturing landscape thanks to a single, revolutionary technology: 3-D printing. Although this sounds like something out of a science fiction novel, the success of 3D printing is already a foregone conclusion to many manufacturers around the world. The trick now is to identify the companies -- and thereby the stocks -- that will prevail in the battle for market share.
