    First let me say I own shares of 3D, SSYS and XONE. In my opinion they had a great quarter. They are a relatively small company. Revenue growth should be their number one priority. Increasing certain costs to to take care of existing customers or finding new ones should not be of any concern at this stage. I have said this before. We are in the very early stage of revolutionizing the manufacturing process. I am still long on DDD, SSYs and XONE

    I own DDD; watching their strategies, I expected this report to be even worse than it is. I expected the stocks to drop from $50+ to below $45; it did briefly at midday and bounced back to ~ $48. Numbers don't lie. I see the $42-45 range as opportunities to stock up. I am preparing to do so.

    You are probably correct but I think the CEO hurt himself on the conference call. Arrogant sounding CEOs get into quick trouble with analysts.

    I do think 3D had a blow out fantastic quarter. Why so many articles keep harping on 4 cents below some number is beyond me. They are in a very difficult business and it will definitely get more difficult as large companies start to get into the same business. Being at the forefront of this industry is a great advantage. They have a CEO with the ability to make this company grow. I continue to buy stock in 3D, Xone and SSYS. Five years from today I strongly believe their stock will go through the roof or they will all become super rich from a buyout.
    I just want a piece of this action.
