A positive WSJ column about the 3D printing industry's potential could be helping printer makers (DDD, SSYS, XONE) rally. The paper notes GE's aviation unit prints fuel injectors and other combustion system components, Mattel uses 30 3D printers to prototype its toys, and Ford both prints auto part prototypes and "sees a future where customers will be able to print their own replacement parts." Also: the WSJ reports fast-growing 3D printer startup MakerBot is in buyout talks, and that recent VC funding talks valued the company at $300M. 3D Systems is fresh off raising $237M many think will be directed towards M&A.

    Like many of you I believe in this technology. This is the manufacturing technology of the future. In my humble opinion if the market does not like the jobs number tomorrow we could see a significant sell off. Over priced stocks usually take a hard hit if the market starts to sell off. Think real hard about the risks of a bad jobs number tomorrow on all 3D type stocks.
    I currently do not own 3D, SSYS and OXONE. I could be a buyer tomorrow if the stocks take a dip.

    I'm sure you would love the prices to drop so you can enter.

    Absolutely, but if they don't I will just wait a week to see what happens. If they start to move quickly I will just enter. It is better to have half a loaf.

    The GE-SGLB partnership in Applied Materials quality control is a positive boost for 3D industries: http://bloom.bg/12uUgDc
    I am glad I am long in DDD and SGLB; I am ready to increase my positions in a market trading dip.
    The 3D AM industry has a positive future for 5 to 10-year horizons.
