    At this stage DDD must continue to grow the business. Making or beating gross sales numbers is paramount. Maintaining and growing margins is important but at this stage I would not be very concerned about margins unless they dropped significantly. Last but not least is earnings. Important but not as important as revenue. Heck, Amazon still does not make a profit. I will continue to hold and buy additional shares as long as this company continue to grow annual sales by at least 25%. Many large corporations have a hold on capitol budgets until our government problems and Obamacare gets resolved. This is a head wind and DDD could use some discounts to get manufactures to invest in 3D printing.

    Will it be under 50 again? After this report I'm not sure.

    50% growth Y/Y is great growth. If the bottom line resvenue is down because the company is investing intself through R&D, etc. that is good news too--not a cause to dump the stock. I agree with the Amazon analogy.

    50% growth Y/Y is fantastic. Dip in net revenue should be of no concern since the company is investing more in itself through R&D, etc. The analogy above to amazon is apt. As long as the revenues grow and the company is profitable, this stock is going up.

    58.65 at 12:54 10/29/13 broke a new high pre lunch today.
    I guess shorts are getting margin calls aplenty.
