Cimatron tumbles; SA author questions 3D printing exposure

|By:, SA News Editor

Cimatron (CIMT -14%) "seems to be one of those cases where non-professional investors that don't really know the 3D [printing] industry are jumping on the stock," says SA contributor 3D Insider in a very bearish piece.

The author states Cimatron admitted on its Q4 CC (transcript) it expects minimal revenue from 3D printing in the near-term, and that printer makers such as 3D Systems and Stratasys offer their own software suites.

3D Insider also notes insiders unloaded millions of shares last year via two public offerings. "Within a quarter, the owners managed to get rid of their 40% stake, which dropped almost to 0% by September 2013."
