3D Systems looks strong

The Street rates 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) as a Buy because of several strengths, which the site’s analysts believe will have a bigger impact on it than any weaknesses. Specifically, they pointed to the company’s “robust” growth in revenue, which rose 49.9% since the same quarter a year ago, beating the 4.7% industry average. They also noted 3D’s mostly solid financial positioning, 6.3% year over year earnings per share growth and solid cash flow. They believe these strengths will be greater than the fact that 3D’s return on equity has been rather disappointing for investors.
