What to Watch for in 3D Systems 3Q Earnings

The ProX 400 is one of several industrial-size metal 3D printers that 3D Systems manufactures.

High-profile 3D printing company 3D Systems willreport earnings tomorrow morningat 8:30 EST, and perhaps the biggest topic the company will have to address is the departure of long-time CEO Avi Reichental. What 3D Systemsdiscusses in relation to its search for Reichentals successor should indicate the direction the company takes going into 2016.

Reichental helmed the company for 12 years as president and CEO, butresigned in late Octoberafter a turbulent period for 3D Systems. The maker of industrial and desktop printers has seen its stock price tumble over the last year and a half from a high of $97.25 in 2014. Last Thursday, when the news of Reichentals departure was made public, 3D Systems stock price ended the day at $10.28. It was during Reichentals tenure that 3D Systems made a string of acquisitionsmore than a dozensince 2011. One of those has come back to bite 3D Systems afteran arbitrator decided last monththat 3D Systems owes the co-founder of a company it acquired an $11.2 million award.

But buying a number of companies over several years led to other problems for 3D Systems. While a period of high growth enabled us to acquire strategic assets and build critical expertise, our rapid expansion permitted certain operating inefficiencies that we are currently addressing, Reichental said during the companyssecond quarter earnings call in August.

MORE:Why 3D printing is the future of manufacturing, not just a cool gimmick

It was a point picked up on by Oppenheimer analyst Holden Lewis, who wrote in his Oct. 29 note on 3D Systems that integrating a cornucopia of acquisitions strained the companys ability to monitor and maintain the quality of its products. Elsewhere he noted that 3D Systems needs to change direction, and that Reichentals stepping down is a first step to reinstalling confidence in 3D Systems ability to maneuver its many channels.

The market for 3D printing products and services continues to grow:Consulting firm Wohlers Associatespegged the worldwide market at $4.1 billion in 2014. In the second quarter, 3D Systems reported revenues of $170.5 million, a 13% increase year over year but still $3 million short of analyst estimates. Analysts are predicting 3D Systems third quarter revenues to bearound $181 million, a 9% increase year over year.

Still, other analysts have also been lukewarm on the company. Despite noting that the prototyping and production services side of 3D Systems business has remained quite healthy, Pacific Crests Weston Twigg and Daniel Bakshtnoted in Septemberthat 3D Systems pricing was high relative to competitors like Stratasys and Proto Labs, and that the companys user experience was among the worst.

Ultimately, whoever is chosen to take the reins of 3D Systems will need to begin a necessary company reset, presumably focused on productivity in areas like design, manufacturing, and direct metal printingallareas of revenue growthfor 3D Systemsat a time when the 3D printing market has beenoverhypedand key questions about the technologys reliability and ease of use remain.

3D Systems (DDD) Stock Gains On Takeover Chatter

(NYSE:DDD) was off to a relatively rough day in the market today, spending most of the morning in the red. However, minutes ago, the stock quickly spiked into the green, and for good reason. A rumor surfaced, causing excitement among investors and prompting our friends atTrade Ideasto alert us to the gains. At the moment (10:34), DDD is trading at $18.14 per share after a gain of $0.13 per share or 0.72% thus far today.

As mentioned above, 3D Systems was off to a rough day in the market until minutes ago when the stock started to spike into the green. The gains are ultimately the result of rumors surrounding the company. Those rumors suggest that DDD will soon be taken over. However, like most rumors in the market, this one is overwhelmingly vague. The rumor is only that the company may soon be taken over, but doesnt offer any information with regard to who the buyer might be nor what the price might be.

At the end of the day, this isnt the first rumor weve seen in the market, and it sure isnt going to be the last. The bottom line is that rumors happen all of the time, and very few of them ever prove to be valid. Considering the fact that this rumor is overwhelmingly vague and its seemingly impossible to track down the source, I would bet my bottom dollar that this is a false one. So, if you do plan on trading on this news, please be sure to do so with caution.

Stop wasting your time! Start finding winning trades in minutes withTrade Ideas!

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on DDD. In particular, were interested in seeing if a takeover is indeed going to take place. While we dont believe that there is any validity to the rumor, anything can happen in the market. Nonetheless, well continue to follow the story and bring the news to you as it breaks!

3D Systems Sales Fall Most In Years; Revenue Outlook Is Light

S&P 500, Nasdaq Close At Highs; Dow Dips But Erases Most Losses

3D Systems(DDD) reported a steeper-than-expected revenue decline, as the 3D printer maker undergoes a turnaround and faces increased competition from giants such asGeneral Electric(GE),HP Inc.(HPQ) and others.

3D Systems reported Q4 revenue of $165.9 million, missing the consensus estimate of $176.6 million and down 9.5% year over year. Its the biggest year-over-year sales decline in several years.

It reported earnings per share minus items of 15 cents, down 21% vs. 19 cents a year earlier but beating the consensus for 13 cents.

3D expects 2017 revenue of $643 million to $684 million with non-GAAP EPS of 51-55 cents. Analysts see 2017 EPS of 51 cents, but had forecast revenue of $684.8 million.

Rock Hill, S.C.-based 3D Systems is under growing pressure from General Electric, HP Inc.,Siemens(SIEGY) and other companies that are pumping up their strength in 3D printers. The 3D print trade faces an array of challenges, ranging from the type and price of potential materials, to rethinking entire supply chains for portions of the industrial landscape.

3D Systems shares fell 10% on thestock market today, tumbling through their 50-day line. 3D shares have been consolidating since mid-April 2016.

Stratasys(SSYS) stock lost 5.6% to 19.77, undercutting its 200-day.

Stratasys reports its Q4 results before the market open March 9. The companies are the two largest 3D printer makers by revenue, but both have found demand failing to live up to the early hype of a 3D print revolution.

Last April, 3D Systems announced that it hadrecruited Vyomesh Joshito be its new CEO. Joshi had been executive vice president of the imaging and printing business of HP Inc.

The 3D printer market stirred aninvestor and media frenzyin the three years through 2014. At that time, 3D printers were just taking hold in consumer markets and developing critical mass in some commercial and industrial settings. Big names, including General Electric andBoeing(BA), had begun to embrace the tools.

HP made its long-awaited entryinto the 3D printer market15 months ago. General Electric last yearalso purchased two European 3D printing companies, and has developed jet engine technology via 3D printing. Boeing has also used the technology, also known as additive manufacturing, to make tools and parts.

I particularly like this companys exposure to healthcare — where I believe 3D can make an impact now.

3D Systems Corporation If This Happens DDD Stock Could Soar

3D Systems Corporation: If This Happens, DDD Stock Could Soar

3D Systems Corporation: If This Happens, DDD Stock Could Soar

3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) stock can finally gain traction if it can surpass one last obstacle.

The technology behind three-dimensional (3D) printing is phenomenal and the idea that it will lead to great breakthroughs in the future is sound. It was this hype that drove

(NYSE:DDD) stock price to all-time highs.While it is unfortunate that DDD shares now trade at a fraction of their value hit in December 2013, when DDD stock traded as high as $97.28 per share, the stock has been ravaged by a bear market. At its current share price of $12.71, DDD stock is down 87% from its peak.Trying to catch a bottom is a dangerous game to play. I never recommend investors try to do so. Instead, rather than attempting to catch a bottom, I always wait until the trend has confirmed a reversal. In other words, I will never catch the exact bottom, but I will certainly be trading in the direction of the trend.Let me take you through the signals I look for to confirm a trend reversal…The following chart illustrates the trend that decimated DDD stock:

On April 17, 2014, DDD stock confirmed a death cross, which is a bearish signal that appears on a stocks chart when a stocks 50-day moving average crosses below its 200-day moving average. Traders use this signal to confirm a bear market is ing one signal on its own is never a good trading strategy, though. As a rule of thumb, I never trade against a signal after it has been generated. Once the death cross was confirmed, all new positions in DDD stock should have been a move to either the sidelines or to short the stock. This strategy would have avoided many losses and potentially produced some profits. The death cross is not perfect, but it serves to prove that there is little reason to be long in the face of such a signal.The first piece of good news is that the death cross has given way to a golden cross. Take a look at the chart below.

On April 7, DDD stock generated a golden cross, which signals the exact opposite of a death crossthat a bull market is on the horizon. All trades going forward should be slanted toward neutral or long positions. The time to be short DDD has ended, at least for now.This first piece of good news is not the only piece of good news, though. DDD stock is also trading above its 200-day moving average. (The 200-day moving average is significant because investors use it as a dividing line between stocks that are in a bull market versus stocks in a bear market.)Is this enough to warrant purchasing shares?

There is still a large obstacle that needs to be taken out before I can really turn bullish.If we focus our attention back to the first chart, we see the downtrend that has dominated DDD stock since 2014. A downtrend is defined by lower lows and is confirmed by lower highs. It can easily be identified as the stocks share price moves from the upper left of the chart to the lower right.The downtrend line (highlighted in blue in the first chart) is created by connecting the peaks on the chart. This line is the large obstacle I am referring to and it must be broken for the bulls to gain the upper hand. If DDD stock can surpass this trend line, it will confirm that the downtrend in DDD stock has ended and that a new bull has begun.Breaking above that trend line will not be an easy task. It may take several attempts to do so. When it does finally break, however, we will have the final ingredient for a bullish reversal. The line currently stands at $15.00.

DDD stock may be presenting a potentially opportune time to be picking up shares that have been hammered. For an investment like 3D Systems Corporation, I recommend waiting until shares break above the downtrend line before making a move; this would be the last confirmation needed to finally shift to a bullish bias. Remember, the trend is your friend, though due diligence is always key before moving forward with any investment.

3D Systems Corporation: If This Happens, DDD Stock Could Soar

The technology behind three-dimensional (3D) printing is phenomenal and the idea that it will lead to great breakthroughs in the future is sound. It was this hype that drove3D Systems Corporation(NYSE:DDD) stock price to all-time highs.

While it is unfortunate that DDD shares now trade at a fraction of their value hit in December 2013, when DDD stock traded as high as $97.28 per share, the stock has been ravaged by a bear market. At its current share price of $12.71, DDD stock is down 87% from its peak.

Trying to catch a bottom is a dangerous game to play. I never recommend investors try to do so. Instead, rather than attempting to catch a bottom, I always wait until the trend has confirmed a reversal. In other words, I will never catch the exact bottom, but I will certainly be trading in the direction of the trend.

Let me take you through the signals I look for to confirm a trend reversal

The following chart illustrates the trend that decimated DDD stock:

On April 17, 2014, DDD stock confirmed a death cross, which is a bearish signal that appears on a stocks chart when a stocks 50-day moving average crosses below its 200-day moving average. Traders use this signal to confirm a bear market is approaching.

Using one signal on its own is never a good trading strategy, though. As a rule of thumb, I never trade against a signal after it has been generated. Once the death cross was confirmed, all new positions in DDD stock should have been a move to either the sidelines or to short the stock. This strategy would have avoided many losses and potentially produced some profits. The death cross is not perfect, but it serves to prove that there is little reason to be long in the face of such a signal.

The first piece of good news is that the death cross has given way to a golden cross. Take a look at the chart below.

On April 7, DDD stock generated a golden cross, which signals the exact opposite of a death crossthat a bull market is on the horizon. All trades going forward should be slanted toward neutral or long positions. The time to be short DDD has ended, at least for now.

This first piece of good news is not the only piece of good news, though. DDD stock is also trading above its 200-day moving average. (The 200-day moving average is significant because investors use it as a dividing line between stocks that are in a bull market versus stocks in a bear market.)
