The good news for DDD stock today comes from its earnings report for the first quarter of 2021. We’re diving into some highlights from that report below.

  • The report starts off strong with adjusted earnings per share of 17 cents for the quarter.
  • That easily blows past Wall Street’s estimate of 2 cents in Q1.
  • On top of that, it’s well above the per-share loss of 4 cents from the same time last year.
  • The good news for DDD stock keeps coming with Q1 revenue of $146.1 million.
  • That sounds beats out analysts’ estimate of $136.63 million for the period.
  • It’s also a solid gain compared to revenue of $135.6 million from the first quarter of 2020.
  • Another positive from the earnings report is a net income of $45.2 million.
  • This is a switch from 3D Systems’ net loss of $18.9 million from the same period of the year prior.
  • Operating loss for the quarter comes in at $2 million.
  • That’s much narrower than the company’s operating loss of $18.2 million reported in Q1 2020.

Dr. Jeffrey Graves, president and CEO of 3D Systems, said this about the results boosting DDD stock up today.

“We delivered almost 8% year-over-year revenue growth despite divestments of non-core businesses in 2020 and 2021. When we exclude the revenue from these divested businesses, organic revenue grew nearly 17%. Our Healthcare business continues to deliver exceptional growth, posting a 39% year-over-year increase, with strength in both dental and medical applications.”
