    Stratasys (SSYS) Warns Investors

    It hasn't exactly been the best few quarters for 3D printing stocks in general. Back in October 3D Systems warned investors of a not so great earnings report which was forthcoming. Here we are in February, and Stratasys has just done the same. Last night the company reported that they would likely miss their own guidance for the forth quarter of 2014, and in addition their 2015 full year guidance fell well short of what analysts had been expecting. The complete numbers for their guidance can be found here: http://3dprint.com/41927/stratasys-stock-warning/

    Are you a Stratasys investor (SSYS)? What are your thoughts on this warning? Will you buy more stock on the dip, or sell out?

    Let's hope this last exposure of the failure of Bre Pettis to do anything put any good left in his reputation on the scrapheap of history. He pumped and dumped an underdeveloped product (he never gave his awesome engineers the time to finish) and forced it through channels with hobbled support (underfunded support staff was practically forbidden to be helpful) and an unwillingness to help paying customers (he begrudged returns until his vanity retail stores forced the issue).

    The entire emerging consumer 3D printing industry will lose a year or more of funding, and dozens of smaller organizations will fail to find traction because Bre had to ignore the advice and hard work of his employees and be the only smart princess in the room. I hope he chokes on his money.

    SSYS has just reported earnings for Q1 2015. A bit better than expected. Thoughts?

    Another not-so great earnings report by Stratasys this morning. Although their numbers fell in line with analyst expectations, the company decide to pull their full-year guidance. More details can be found here: http://3dprintboard.com/showthread.p...arns-Investors

    Another Warning :

    Stratasys is putting out the word that the numbers might not look so good this quarter; in fact, they are dismal. Stratasys said it will post a net loss of $3.66 a share to $2.98 a share, and third quarter revenue will be between $166 million and $168 million a non-GAAP loss 3 cents a share to a profit of 2 cents a share. Blaming consumer’s reluctance to buy, coupled with writing down MakerBot unit values, Stratasys has not mentioned the looming idea that perhaps an HP takeover could--or should--happen.

    Blaming consumer’s reluctance to buy
    Good one. Only have themselves to blame imo...

    Well obviously they haven't gotten the word out about the customer's obligation to use over priced Statasys filament. They apparently haven't explained to people about the Felony DMCA charges they intend to bring against anybody that uses somebody else's (better and cheaper) filament in their printer. I think this company is getting exactly what they deserve. When you start threatening your customers with Felony charges because they don't like and don't want to use your over priced filament you deserve to lose your customer base.
