3D Printing Stock Earnings Preview

A few years ago, 3D printing was all the rage. Investors viewed it as the next big growth area, and many were billing it as a potential revolution in manufacturing. However, it appears as if the sector may have gotten ahead of itself and it has been struggling to live up to expectations.

This trend led to some pretty big losses for investors over the past few years, but there is hope that the segment has finally bottomed out. We will get some more clarification on this idea over the next several days as two of the most important companies in the space, 3D Systems (DDD) and Stratasys ( SSYS).

DDD is due up first and we are looking for a loss of one cent a share when it gives its quarterly update. We take a closer look at the company’s recent history in earnings season, as well as the trend for earnings expectations going forward in this standard-bearer of the industry.

Following that, investors will get an update from SSYS, a top ranked company that is expected to lose 15 cents a share this quarter. We take a closer look at the consensus estimate trend for this stock, and how things might be shaping up in the future here.

Both look to set the tone for expectations in the industry so the upcoming reports could definitely be ones to watch. Make sure to watch our short video for a more in-depth discussion of these companies, and which are looking the most (and least) promising this earnings season!
