This company is in the sweet spot of the added value 3D printing brings to the marketplace.

TMFBlacknGold (92.45)
Submitted November 05, 2012

Making money, but with only $140.73 million in shareholders' equity this company is an easy red-thumb candidate after its recent spike.

Proto Labs provides 'Real Parts, Really Fast' to product developers worldwide. I don't like this company and there is no good reason for it to succeed. I am a big believer in 3D printing and I think we are starting to see the final stages of the Gartner Hype Cycle play out: namely we are steadily moving up the slope of enlightenment. I think Proto Labs has a chance of sort term success - but my hope is that someday soon we will all have the same ability as Proto Labs in our homes and this company will go bankrupt. I am keeping an eye on how they diversify their business for that future and how they deal with their inevitable obsolescence. This is a great candidate for shorting because they shouldn't exist, and probably won't in a few years.

Doubled in price in the last 8 months but it still has plenty of room to grow. Not overpriced IMHO. It is capturing the revenue that the pure additive mfg, plays have been missing (e.g. Stratasys). Is focused on moving from prototyping to short lead time to mass production

Strong leadership. Reputable and well-known company among those in its market.

I like them going into earnings. The 3D Printing business is good and should expand. My favorite 3D printing stock.
