12:01 EDTXONE, GE, SSYS, VJET, DDD3D printer stocks drop after Barron's pans sector
Shares of 3D printer makers are sinking after Barron's contended that the stocks in the sector are hyped, don't have much potential, and are overvalued. WHAT'S NEW: In an article published over the weekend, a Barron's columnist wrote that investors are overpaying for publicly traded 3D printer makers 3D Systems (DDD), Stratasys (SSYS), ExOne (XONE), and Voxeljet (VJET). Those companies' products are inferior to privately held competitors when it comes to industrial manufacturing, the area that 3D printing can really reshape, the publication contended. Meanwhile, 3D Systems is trading at a price to earnings multiple of 84 that's "wild," since its earnings per share is expected to drop slightly this year, added Barron's. All of the companies named above have premium valuations, Barron's believes. Furthermore, in addition to competition from privately held companies, the publicly traded 3D printer makers will face competition from General Electric (GE), which has entered the sector, noted Barron's. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, 3D Systems dropped 5.7% to $63.45, Stratasys fell 3.4% to $110.61, Voxeljet gave back 4.2% to $32.75 and ExOne sank 4.6% to $42.85.
