3D printing stocks post big gains

|By:, SA News Editor

Momentum traders are warming up to 3D printing stocks again: 3D Systems (DDD +5.4%), Stratasys (SSYS +3.9%), and Voxeljet (VJET +8%) are up sharply, though no major news has arrived to fuel a rally. ExOne (XONE +2.9%), Camtek (CAMT +5.5%), and Organovo (ONVO +2.8%) are also higher.

3D Systems is at its highest levels since May, and Stratasys and Voxeljet their highest levels since April.

YTD performance for the group remains weak, thanks in large part to earnings disappointments and the valuation concerns that followed monster 2013 rallies. 3D Systems -40%, Stratasys -21%, Voxeljet -57%, ExOne -40%, Camtek -18%, Organovo -32%.
