While investors have generally cheered both of these moves, it remains to be seen if this was money well spent.
If the overall market for 3D printers ends up being smaller than the outsized predictions, both of these companies – and their shareholders – stand to endure disappointing results.
What’s a Fool to do?
As things stand now, I’m still a big believer in 3-D printing. I own shares of both Stratasys, Ltd. (NASDAQ:SSYS) and 3D Systems, though I like the growth strategy at Stratasys more, and it comprises a larger part of my holdings. I would suggest against going “all in” on either company; instead, allocate reasonable amounts to the field if it interests you.
