laser leader - marking, making, and mutilating (maybe, see military use of lasers?) the targets.

IPGP is an amazing company.....the clear leader in industrial lasers.....the leader in innovation....the leader in low-cost production....they should continue to dominate their sector barring outside interruption.

Well.....that's the problem. A significant portion of IPGP's production is in Russia. How much is not entirely clear, but it's not a small part of their overall business. That is a problem for a number of different reasons. First and foremost, Russia could just shut them down at any moment. Second, western countries could put strain on the supply chain by not allowing diodes components into Russia for laser manufacturing. Third, the US government is undoubtedly off the table as a customer.

This is a MF pick only. Even though I am extremely tempted to become an owner of this incredible company, the risk is just too high. The stock could easily triple in the next 5 years, but there are some very real geo-political risks.

Price has been knocked down. Not sure why... Europe? Russia? Doesn't matter, good business on sale.

We compared IPG Photonics to Hyatt Hotels in a quest to determine which stock we like more over the succeeding 3+ years. We selected IPGP, in no small part because of its superior (and truly outstanding) financial dynamics. Both companies are leaders in their space, though IPG has significantly less competition and is more the disruptor. It has high gross and net margins -- particularly net profit margins (about 30%!). Sales are also growing stronger, up about 75% in total over the past 4 years. You put together accelerating sales and high margins and now we see why this company was a 5-bagger over the past 5 years. And yet it's still only about half the market cap of H. CAPS All-Stars love this stock and we think for good reason. We also love the story of the Russian immigrant CEO -- go Valentin!

Yeah. Huh huh. Yeah. Lasers. Huh-huh. Huh. Okay, so maybe this isn't Monkey's most sophisticated analysis, but all you need to know is that the industrial world is using lasers more and more and IPGP is the go-to laser maker, having invested a stupid large amount in R&D over the years; sometimes it's stocks out of the typical Wall Street crowd's purview that quietly end up generating lots of bananas. IPGP, if you're reading this, can you make a laser that looks like a banana and you squeeze it to turn the laser on and off? That would be tremendous.

Company that's been on my radar for a long time - it over-corrected at the beginning of the year IMO. I like under $70 as a buy-in point.

Lasers more efficient and cooler than other lasers. New products. Europe rebound. On these last two just guessing FYI.

Multiple and growing applications for high powered fiber lasers and no one else has the resources, knowledge and research capabilities to compete at their level.

Their products will become essential for modern engineering and production of vehicles. Their fiber-optic lasers are faster, cleaner, and cheaper than the outdated CO2 lasers. I see a profitable future in this company. I agree with the users below. Once Europe gets back up, they'll be looking for newer technology.

Fiber laser mfg. continues to change laser mfg., IPGP true global. Any European rebound, better organized Russian mfg., IPGP is well positioned. Smart, global, growing.
