Taking a Second Look at 3D Bioprinting Stock CELLINK

The fifth biggest country in Europe by area also happens to be both innovative and productive. The 2020 Innovation Index ranks Sweden as second in the world for innovation (trailing the Swiss), and her per capita gross national product (GNP) is among the highest in the world. Now the country that brought us the zipper, the adjustable […]

Why Have 3D Printing Stocks Been Going Up Lately?

Back when we first started investing in tech stocks, we often made the mistake of confusing short-term stock price performance with long-term potential. For example, we’d write a piece on some small tech stock pointing out a bunch of red flags and then panic when it doubled in price. The criticisms would usually come from […]

3D Printed Spinal Implants for the Medical Device Market

As we’ve written before, the problem with investing in emerging technologies is that you can rarely predict which industries will be disrupted and which will remain completely unaffected. 3D printing has certainly been among the most unpredictable technologies we cover. Real growth is coming in areas like distributed manufacturing, led by companies like Materialise (MTL), […]

Six Manufacturing-as-a-Service Companies

Computer-aided design has been giving us digital twins long before the term became mainstream. The ability to design something digitally and then create it in the real world has been around for a while. What’s changed is the variety of materials and lot sizes you can choose from, and speed at which you can do […]

The World’s Largest Metal 3D Printer is Printing Rockets

We’ve often wondered why stealth mode startups have websites. Isn’t being found the one thing you don’t want to happen when operating in stealth mode? Not so, says Bond Collective, a provider of “thoughtfully curated boutique work environments” that charges wantreprenuers $900 a month for “an unmatched experience.” In some cases, a stealth mode startup […]

Desktop Metal Stock and Additive Manufacturing 2.0

When the company that produces the world’s fastest metal 3D printers, Desktop Metal, announced their intentions to go public, shares of another metal 3D printing company, ExOne (XONE), soared. On the surface, this makes no sense. If ExOne’s competitor is successfully raising more capital to sell a superior metal 3D printer, shouldn’t that be bad […]

A 3D Printing Stock With Diversified Business Lines

The herd behaves in strange ways. Last time we looked, data science stock Alteryx was down -40% because they revised guidance. Like that was some big shocker. We all know about “the rona.” We know the entire global economy has taken a dramatic productivity hit. Yet, we all act surprised when a company revises guidance […]

What Happened to 3D-Printed Drugs?

Healthcare is usually seen as pretty recession proof. After all, when things head south, our health can go sideways. But the current pandemic has reportedly wiped out 1.4 million jobs in the medical field. (Do you really want to go in for that nose job and leave with a potentially deadly pulmonary infection?) While the […]

3D Printed Lenses for Glasses from Luxexcel

Back in the late 1990s, Hewlett Packard was “going back to the garage” trying to reinvent themselves. At the time, rumor had it they had a printer in one of the R&D teams that could print chess pieces. People were blown away by the thought of printing solid objects on demand. We all thought that […]

Why Organovo Stock Continues to Drop

We’ve been writing about disruptive technologies like 3D bioprinting for the past seven years now. The promise of bioprinted human tissues is something that wall street analysts have been patiently waiting for a while now, at least when it comes to Organovo Holdings (ONVO). The company’s stock has been steadily plummeting over the years while […]
