The bright future, dangerous present narrative is playing out for 3D systems (DDD), at least this morning, with shares -6.6% early amid broader market weakness. Stratasys (SSYS) -3.9%, ExOne (XONE) -3.6% aren't faring too well either.

    This site warned me off; perhaps early, but I'm out of DDD; IBD had it on their hot movers and it's no longer there.
    Three weeks ago; before holiday an after market buyer took every share of DDD I had. I said: gosh I hope that wasn't a mistake (the sell)...the warning here was DDD was like AAPL's action.

    According to Yahoo finance, DDD's forward PE (2013) is 34+; it is now getting back to it's intrinsic value based on future growth. Any drop from here will be a buying opportunity - I still think someone will buy them.

    DDD did not drop as much as it did the last two days because of any weaknesses instrinsic to the company. It dropped because the entire market dropped due to macro-economic news out there. I own on the order of 30 stocks in about 7-8 sectors, and they ALL went down the last two days. Most started to recover late in the day today, and I know they will come back. DDD will be no different. It will bounce back. Skittish investors--as well as computer driven sales and institutional investors all ran to the sidelines this week, and we all saw the result. We would have less volatility if the average investor out there showed more patience and discipline. Example: the "sequester" issue will frighten the market and it shouldn't. Read the details and it is not bad, although Obama will turn it into a melodrama for his and the Democrats political gain. $1.2T in cuts over 10 years with only $44B this year? Please. And they are not cuts but merely reductions in the rate of growth. But all the Chicken Littles out there will make this market faint over it. Put on your seatbelts--we are in for a rough ride.
