  • 3D Systems Scrutiny Highlights Promise For 3D Bioprinting [View article]
    I remain bullish on DDD that will bounce back as investor's awareness of 3D printing expands. I just came across an old statement from my broker showing that I had 1,000 shares of Apple (AAPL) at $122.50 and I sold it, thinking the company wasn't going anywhere. With any new "disruptive" technology, the "BUY and HOLD" strategy will eventually pay off. DDD has been acquiring other companies, which includes their patent portfolios, engineers, etc. DDD will either be acquired by a larger company as the field experiences consolidation, or it will increase in market value as the stock rises. In either case, DDD will do well and investors should be patient. The rewards, like Apple, will be impressive for those who wait...

  • 3D Systems: The Bumpy Road To Greatness [View article]
    I continue to hold 4,000 shares of DDD for the long term. Even Al Gore in his new book 'The Future" talks about the transformative nature of 3D printing and its effect on manufacturing, dependency on China, and the speed and convenience of how we get what we want or need. I'm not discouraged by the drop in the stock price. I'm impressed with 3D's acquisitions and attempt to build a "critical mass" of companies and components to be the lead company in 3D printing. My average purchase price is $42 and holding. Be patient. This is a "Get Rich Slow" event....

  • 2 Growth Stocks: 1 To Buy, 1 To Sell [View article]
    I bought 400 shares of DDD for my wife at $24 a share, then kicked myself for not following my own advice. By the time I got in at $36, the train was beginning to leave the station.

    Why DDD? There are few truly innovative stocks that will change our lives in the future. DDD is one of them. Imagine you are a home and break your spatula. You could go to Wal-Mart, and Wal-Mart could go to China, and China could make your spatula and ship it to the US, then Wal-Mart would distribute it to one of their stores, then the store could display it on their shelf.

    OR... you could turn to your 3D printer and PRINT A NEW SPATULA AT HOME FOR YOURSELF!

    Save time, money, freight, inconvenience, etc. This is a revolutionary company with a trans formative product!. It will catch on! If Steve Jobs were around, he would be into 3D printing! It is his kind of thing.

    Buy DDD for the long haul. Ignore pundits who talk about short term gain. Share the vision of 3D printing and cash in when the stock hits $500 a share!

  • Ford (F -0.1%) plans to move away with the retro look of its Mustang model with new versions as it attempts to boost sales to Generation Y buyers. Though the iconic car will retain its classic shark-nosed grille and round headlights, starting with the 2014 model year it will more closely resemble a Ford Fusion than the Mustang of yesteryear. [View news story]
    I owned a 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang (Caspian Blue) and I loved it! I sold it only because I married and had a baby boy and it was too small for a family car. I should have kept it.

    It was fast, sporty, reliable, a real head-turner... If they come back to that design they should not change it too much. The retro- look will sell. I have 10,000 shares of Ford and say "YES! GO FOR IT!"
