The ExOne Company Is Down Again: What's the Deal?

Though the market has been somewhat steady so far in 2014, the same cannot be said for shareholders of 3-D printing companies. Some of the industry's largest names have lost well over one-third of their value in a few short months.

No company, however, has lost more than ExOne  (NASDAQ: XONE  )  -- a small 3-D printing company with a focus on large, industrial customers. After the company's earnings release last week, shares continued to be punished -- down as much as 18% in one day.

In the video below, the Motley Fool's Brian Stoffel -- a shareholder in ExOne himself -- digs in and lets you know why the company's shares were trading so low, and what he plans on doing with this new information.

Are you ready to profit from this $14.4 trillion revolution?
Let's face it, every investor wants to get in on revolutionary ideas before they hit it big. Like buying PC-maker Dell in the late 1980s, before the consumer computing boom. Or purchasing stock in e-commerce pioneer in the late 1990s, when it was nothing more than an upstart online bookstore. The problem is, most investors don't understand the key to investing in hyper-growth markets. The real trick is to find a small-cap "pure-play" and then watch as it grows in EXPLOSIVE lockstep with its industry. Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.

    Sorry, but ExOne is slow in selling to foundries for 2 reasons: 1. their machines are way too expensive for the kind of foundries that might buy one* and 2. ExOne also is very active in selling the services of these machines without actually buying one.

    *the kind of foundry with the capital to buy a rapid-prototype machine is usually a large, production foundry where highly durable tooling is used and quantities justify it. This is a contradiction to the ExOne model. The kind of foundry that could be utilize ExOne is a "one off" model and a smaller "jobbing" foundry. Sadly, those shops are least likely to spend 1.4 mil on a machine like this. Your research is plain wrong.
