3D Printing Stocks: 2 You Want, 3 You Don’t

Time and reality have finally caught up with most of the players in the 3D printer space

Stratasys Ltd (SSYS)

3d-printing-stocks-ssys-stockStratasys Ltd (SYSS) may not be the biggest player (in terms of market cap) of the 3D printing stocks, but it’s arguably the best 3D printer maker out there … and that’s saying something, considering its support and supply divisions are a huge part of its revenue engine.

For example, Stratasys recently unveiled the world’s first multi-material 3D color printer. Some are calling it the best three-dimensional printer yet. At the same time, Stratasys’ MakerBot line of 3D printers were recently added to Dell’s lineup of third-party products.

Putting it all together, what you have is a company that’s happy to be in second place in terms of size and expectations among the major 3D printing stocks. That keeps the target off of its back.

SSYS stock still isn’t cheap at a forward-looking P/E of 53, but it’s palatable compared to 3D Systems and other 3D printing stocks, and its product base is healthier.
