2 Reasons for Investors to Reassess IPG Photonics Corporation

Anyone who invested in IPG Photonics (NASDAQ: IPGP  )  in 2009 is sitting on a return of over 750%. That's pretty amazing, but lately shareholders of this leader in fiber-optic lasers haven't had too much to crow about. In fact, the stock sits at about the same price it held three years ago.

Does that mean it's time for investors to look elsewhere when it comes to investing their hard-earned money? Maybe, but maybe not.

As The Motley Fool's Brian Stoffel explains in the video below, investors in IPG Photonics need to understand what the next year could look like, and why it might be tough on the company and its shareholders.  

At the same time, Brian says that by zooming out to a much longer time horizon, investors could be rewarded for their patience. Watch the video to find out why.
