Top 3D Printing Stocks – Stratasys (SSYS)
Market Cap: $5.8 billion
YTD Performance: 48%
Stratasys (SSYS) is another one of the 3D printing stocks with a more-than-respectable market value. At nearly $6 billion, SSYS stock is a large midcap or even a small large cap, and it has put up a market-beating year-to-date gain of 48%.
Like DDD, Stratasys is a core company among 3D printing stocks, specializing in 3D printers and materials. SSYS allows designers to build concept models and functional prototypes for everything from consumer products to aerospace parts.
Probably the most interesting recent development at Stratasys is the introduction of its Mini Metal Maker 3D printer. Sort of a little brother to MakerBot — already a hit for SSYS — the Mini Metal Maker could score big with custom jewelry manufacturers and anyone else working in metal … and could send SSYS stock even higher.
For the most recent quarter, Stratasys had a net loss of $6.6 million on revenue of $125.6 million. SSYS stock only has a long-term earnings growth forecast of 10% a year, though, which is a bit low when looking at 3D printing stocks.
