3 reasons why 3d systems is a buy-on-the-dip opportunity
I am against the propagandists who post misleading information about 3D Systems and additive manufacturing. The power of the Internet is so great that a false rumor can be regarded as gospel truth. If the propagandist is skilled enough to use half In fact, the wrong publicity campaign can allow the 3D system to shoot up or down. Writing in English is hard for me, it is not my native language. However, I have a strong vested interest that DDD will not fall victim to false information. I am not trying to distort the market by spreading fear anonymously. Yes, DDD should go up is my agenda, but that\'s three of my reasons Running on a 3D system provides a good opportunity for savvy investors to buy in bottoming out and/or swing deals. My short-term forecast for DDD is down, and brave investors can profit from the rise and fall of DDD. 1. Steam threat of HPQ? The bearish attitude caused by the threat of Hewlett --Packard (NYSE:HPQ) With rumors that the ambition of 3D printing will continue, DDD and other 3D printing companies will suffer further declines in the short term. Recent sources have denied the original publicity of the June announcement on HPQ 3D printing. An article on HP\'s website makes it very clear that HPQ\'s statement on 3D printing will not be in June, but is tentatively scheduled to end in the fiscal year. According to Martin Fink of HP Labs, reading this article leads me to believe that HPQ\'s 3D printing ambition is still in the prototype state. Chuck Hull and 3D Systems will not let the HPQ print faster and the \"vaporware claim\" of better output quality take the market lead of DDD. 3D printing is a manufacturing technology that uses inkjet technology. Just like the 2d printing speed made by additives is still several years away. It seems to me that Chuck Hull and his team are also trying to develop better printers. 2. The misconception about 3D printing I would like to point out is that additive manufacturing should not be given an alias 3D printing. Some people still don\'t understand the concept. Wrong Classification and wrong information will only make some gullible DDD investors panic and sell off their stock, which is good for people like me waiting to re-market Buy cheaper DDD stock. Buying put options will also allow savvy traders to ride shorts. Here are some myths that I would like to clarify. Limited materials? In addition to resin and some metals, additive manufacturing supports many production techniques and a variety of materials. Google will give you a lot of clicks if you enter 3D print material. The 3D printer uses PLA, pc, steel, wax, silver, titanium (Yes titanium! ) Glass-filled polyamide, holographic lens, etc . . . . . . A person only needs to go to the website of the 3D system and Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) Found that both industry leaders have the existing additive manufacturing technology, which makes more Production of materials using only one product. Stratasys has Objet connecx 500 and Projet 5500X for 3D Systems. Source: StratasysComplex availability? Learning takes time, but it is not difficult to create 3D digital files for manufacturing. AutoCAD experts are not required to quickly design and print complex objects. There\'s a lot of free easy-to- Use 3D modeling free programs such as Blender, 3 Dtin, 3 DCrafter, LeoCadd. There is a huge ready Library. to- Use a 3D model that can start a 3D print file. Those who don\'t want to waste their time learning 3D modeling software, the 3D system has been scanned-to-Print solution. Intel and its partners have also launched built-in laptops and tablets In the Intel RealSense 3D camera later this year. A tablet with a solid 3D camera can even make the nursery Children of age scan real-world objects to output to a 3D printer. 3D Systems has released the attached iSense that can be connected to the iPad. ISense will have some of the 0. 2 billion iPad users scan objects quickly to quickly convert to a 3D model Or readings for additive manufacturing. Strength? Additive manufacturing or 3D printing for the production of task parts- Key purpose. If the output does not meet the highest intensity and reliability standards, 3D printing technology will not be used by aerospace and military bigwigs. A combat helicopter manufacturer offers a variety of 3D Systems 2010 contract. Yes, four years ago, the military believed in the reliability of 3D system products long before 3D printing became famous. The U. S. The Air Force even rewarded the 3D System for $2. 95 million cash reward for contribution to F-35 jetfighter. Source: Lockheed Martin 3d Systems and Stratasys are producing additive manufacturing products that are trusted by the aerospace and defense industries. There is no doubt that additive manufacturing produces very solid and reliable parts. 3. Misconceptions about the failure of 3D Systems? More competitive? The expiration of the basic patent of the 3D system in laser sintering will not kill the company\'s overall gross profit margin. In order to accelerate the downward trend of stocks, this problem is blown out of proportion by DDD shorts. I suggest that new and old investors of DDD download 10- So they will understand why I have to reject the expiration of the laser sintering patent. The 3D system has more weapons on its arsenal, and more patents on its arsenal, which will allow competitors to eat dust. In addition to laser sintering, it has hundreds of patents and DDD has six other additive manufacturing technologies. Besides selective laser sintering (NASDAQ:SLS) , DDD has these other weapons to defend its leadership: stereo printingMJM) Spray printing (3DP)NYSEARCA:PJP)- Based on PrintersIt\'s claim is very wrong because the company\'s laser sintering patent expires and DDD will face more competition. Yes it will produce a cheaper 3D printer but I doubt it will cause dirt Cheap 3D printing materials. Even Chinese, it\'s hard to figure out how to solve the problem. Cheap material prices that will push the 3D system into bankruptcy. Just like the old 2D printing industry, the company will make most of the money from the repeated sales of additive manufacturing materials. MakerBot is still a huge success, though it has expired a few years ago. The winners in the 3D printing industry will be those who will be able to provide the best printer/material at the right price. Some people will bet on Stratasys, HPQ, GE, but my bet is DDD. Chinese counterfeiters can come up with cheaper printers, but, like the iPhone, no one can beat people with high quality and years of experience. The 3D system has a history of more than 30 years. It knows how to make additive manufacturing products like everyone else. Artificial Growth? Inorganic growth? As the great scoff always reminds me, it\'s not good for 3D Systems to Acquire so many small companies. It increases the number of shares, making it very difficult to integrate all these new subsidiaries. I do not agree that M & A is actually good for the future of the company. I suggest people read The Art of War so you will understand that it is better to make allies from potential/current enemies. If it can prevent unnecessary wars and thus ensure greater future prosperity, it is good to dilute the value of the stock. Since 2003, I have enjoyed a lot of MMORPGs with this technology-2007. I set up a guild and recruited other guilds/players with a bribe of game money/weapons/armor. I made a lot of money selling my boss. As I lead the strongest Guild, lay down my arms and armor. In the early days of the game, when everything is low, build peace Levels, ensuring faster levels, farming of equipment, overall success of the server population. I commend Abe for his mastery of carrots. than- Stick to the method of recruiting allies. If I just bribe their leaders with 9 weapons or 9 armor instead of killing them repeatedly, it would be easier for my guild to win new recruits. Wasted Time, bad publicity. There is power in numbers. The acquisition provides more technology and more talented employees for 3D Systems. I hope Abe or Hull can also convince David Reith to join the DDD Guild. 3D Systems Stratasys is a killer combination that will secure a solid future for investors in both companies. Organic or inorganic growth is still growing. Conclusion I refuted some of the most annoying lies and misconceptions about the 3D system. I can provide a more legal response to other questions, but I am tired. This is one of the longest SA articles I have ever written. I accept that the decline in DDD will continue unabated in the short term, but I will use this bearish sentiment for small purchases to increase my DDD position. Yes, I will make a deal, buy options, too. I will wear shorts, but I am very long. Here are some relevant charts that I think are necessary for new investors who are not yet familiar with DDD. The 3D system is not wrong in the high DDD price in January. I am not quite sure that the pump and dumping may have occurred. But my background in math and advertising convinced me that the bull market for DDD was somewhat suspicious from October 2013 to early January 2014. After Citron Research released a negative report on the 3D system in January 24, DDD dropped sharply. Please read this explanation as to why I think the incense cit research ignited the negative wildfire on DDD. SourceDDD\'s double-digit revenue growth over the years is not false. It has also made money in the past three years. Yahoo March 27, 2014 earnings. A 52- On March 27, 2013, the weekly low of DDD was $30. The floating rate of Float should have exceeded 30%. Buy on dip, hold and wait patiently. Once the shorts are tired of shorting the stock and manipulating the bull market again, DDD will rise again. Source: Yahoo financial disclosure: I am long DDD.
