Despite strong revenue growth in the 3D system, gross profit margin is also higher (NYSE:DDD) Recently beaten with Stratasys, the biggest competitor (NASDAQ:SSYS). Internal sales and growing competition have brought the price of the 3D printer maker back from a high of $44. At $80 at the end of August, it fell to a low near $32 at the end of September. I still think 3D is the last closing price of $34. 27, provided that it addresses a number of issues related to its competition in its re-report in October 25. Revenue growth for 3D Systems has outpaced recent market rivals. I find the most interesting thing about the personal 3D printer industry is that there was an early anti-business model similar to Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android mobile platform and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL)iOS. The MakerBot industry is in Thingiverse, similar to the Google Play store. There is a community of individuals who share their \"things\" for free \". MakerBot also has free software that can be used with the printer. The software for 3D Systems website Cubify costs $49. The Cubify website features a better quality design at a reasonable price. I think there is room for both business models, but the long-lasting debate about which model is better is inevitable. Despite strong revenue growth in 3D Systems, 52-week high. Formlabs received a lot of attention when using Kick- Start selling printers worth about $100,000, and receive a lot more money than anyone thinks. Formlabs is still too small to pose a threat, but industry insiders and their analysts are concerned about it. The demand for professional-grade printers seems to be in the range of $2,500. Stereo sound- Flat print technology with 3D printers is called Table 1, and in this industry that has changed the rules of the game, it is a game changer. It offers the quality that used to cost tens of thousands of pounds for $2,500. The latest 3D printer Cube from 3D Systems is priced at $1,299 and while it\'s an interesting toy, it doesn\'t offer professional-grade quality like Form 1. When the 3D system presents a 3rd quarterly gain, I will look for a strategy to deal with the upcoming professional quality stereo threat The price of the flat print press competes with its popular molten deposition molding toy. Table 1 offers much higher quality than most FDM printers at very affordable prices. What I want to see in the third quarter 2012 report is that the signs that the 3D system is paying for all models are getting When 3D was last reported, the Cube printer was just on the market and the early signs were very positive. Release of Cubify. Com is also very active and orders exceed the expected maximum range. I would like to see some positive numbers to confirm my suspicion that competition from cheaper personal 3D printers does not seriously affect the growth of the 3D consumer sector. While I expect the consumer sector to drive the growth of 3D Systems, this is not the only source of revenue for the company. The 3D system produces a range of professional printers and materials that are combined with production lines that are about to be discontinued. Its health care materials department produces medical devices and other tools for use in and around the human body. Although the prospects for the production and health care sectors are not as good as the consumer goods and services sectors of 3d, their revenues have been growing steadily. I will also focus on the continued growth of these sectors. Last quarterly report from 3D Systems showed strong revenue growth and encouraging profit margin growth. The number of printers sold increased by 111%, which guarantees a forward price/earnings ratio of £ 27. 2. So when 3D Systems released its third-quarter results on Friday, October 26, the first thing I will look for will be a continuation of that growth. Specifically, I will look for revenue and profit margin data that meet or exceed the second quarter report. Revenue and gross profit margin targets based on 2012 results for the second quarter are as follows. These are not the only indicators that should be considered, but the 3D system Revenue call is scheduled to take place at 11: 00 a. m. on Friday, the 26 th. I expect the share price to rise sharply before the bell rings. Analyst earnings per share are estimated to be between $0. 17 and $0. 26. These are some relatively broad differences. Even if they reached an average estimate of $0 per share. The stock is about to move. I will submit a more in-depth analysis of Q3 results after the call. Prior to that, I would recommend continuing to focus on revenue growth, expanding profit margins, and the performance of the Cubify Store. If they are able to meet or exceed the above objectives, I think a long-term position is necessary.
