The Top 25 Tech Stocks: IPG Photonics

The following video is part of senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker's "Top 25 Tech Stocks" series, where he reveals 25 great tech companies for investors looking for new ideas across a sector.

In today's edition, Eric looks at mobile fiber laser maker IPG Photonics. The company has been seeing explosive growth rates and holds a dominant position in the fiber laser market, which looks strong for years to come. Even so, its share price has been falling all summer. At today's prices, Eric thinks it's time to take a deeper look at the company and its continuing room to expand its fiber lasers into new spaces.

    Why does the price of IPGP keep going down? $38.33 as I write this.

    No real way to know the answer to that. Skittishness about China end markets, competition in the space, especially along the lower end both come to mind as logical answers... Their forward rev guidance was slightly less than expected, and growth stocks not hitting sales targets in this market get hammered. I think that's a bit short-sighted, and as alluded to in the video... Think its a great value at today's prices.

    Hope that helps,
