G.I. Joe and My Little Pony could get the 3D business

  • Hasbro (HAS -0.2%) and 3D Systems (DDD +4.7%) plan to partner together to develop "play experiences" through 3D printing.
  • Details from the companies on the venture are light, but Hasbro's well-known brands will be part of the mix and 3D System's recent acquisition of Gentle Giant Studios could start paying off.

    Channel surfing last night as saw a show called Toy Hunter


    Giant Toys


    Jordan and his sidekick Steve are on the hunt for iconic toys for a 3-D manufacturing company to supersize. The duo heads to the ToyMan Toy show in St. Louis to test out their luck.

    Details are light, huh? What a surprise.


    I prefer organic growth, and apparently so does Tiger Global, to the tune of a half million shares!

    Yeah, because DDD cannot acquire a company and then continue to organically grow THAT business after they acquire. No expansion of acquired companies is allowed, by law. And it's not like the IP they gain in these acquisitions can be used either.


    Oh, wait...

    It's pretty well established that companies get better bang for the buck when they can grow the business they are already in as opposed to trying to grow through acquisition. The real concern, though, is Goodwill:

    This sector will continue to grow as it is utilized by more and more other sectors.

    I have a theory, called the Seeking Alpha bull to bear ratio. When any thread leads to a ratio of > 5:1 Bulls to Bears, the stock is a strong sell.
    This thread is now officially Bull: Bear @ 9:1. Time to sell.
