High-Volume Profit-Taking Gives Traders Another Chance to Buy 3D Systems

3D Systems (DDD) — I first recommended this stock on Aug. 12, when it was trading under $47.50. I recommended it again on Aug. 27, at $50.75, after Citigroup (C) analyst Kenneth Wong gave it a “strong buy” rating with a $60 price target, saying that the 3D printing market should more than triple in size over the next five years.

Analysts look for revenue of more than $505 million this year and over $628 million in 2014. Earnings are expected to rise from $0.83 in 2012 to $1.01 in 2013 and $1.33 in 2014.

Technically, DDD broke from a compound top at $51 in mid-August on high volume, hitting a high of $56.23. But Wednesday’s high-volume profit-taking turned the mid-August high into a false breakout. However, the stock is still in a long-term bull market. Support now rests at around $45, and a test of the 200-day moving average at $43.14 is possible.

This stock is at the forefront of 3D printing technology and we want to own it. Traders will have a great opportunity to position themselves in DDD if it falls close to the support line at $45. Therefore, our buy under price is $46.
