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.

Editor's note: A previous version of this article referred to FTD Companies as Flowers Direct. The Fool regrets the error.
