Stratasys down $24 in 3 what?

Stratasys (SSYS) has traded down off it's all time (18 year) high 19 days ago at $92 to $68.

Now What?

Well I personally think the stock is fundamentally overvalued and I really can't see anyone buying stock until the December 31,2012 financials are reported on approx. March 4th and listen to the conference call.

The cash flow statement is very weak. The balance sheet is strong so I don't think the stock is going down forever.
I am concerned that the owners of OBJET will have their (15 plus million) shares being registered sometime this year, (next quarter?).

here is a technical chart from Greg Harmon of DragonFly. Harmon has nailed the stock time and time again like he does with so much of his work. To See a technical chart by Greg Harmon of DragonFly Capital,  click here

here is a NYTIMES BLOG from this weekend and a MorningStar report that is scary.

Stratasys (SSYS) shares are trading below $70 a share this morning. Stratasys is down $18 since Equities Research Warning in January.
 (click here to view Citron Research's Published article yesterday regarding the 3-D space)

Readers of my column and newsletter subscribers are aware that Equities Research Warned on Stratasys in January @ $87 a share.

  • The company hasn't filed a financial statement since November and postponed their February report to approx March 4th.
    Its too Opaque to buy this stock. They gave no guidance at the Needham conference.

    Need to see Numbers. even the March report will only be numbers through Dec 31, meanwhile 1st quarter will almost be over on March 4.

    There's approx 38 million shares out. Times $72 = approx $2.7 billion mkt cap.

    if this company was trading at a forward PE of 27 they would have to have 2013 net income of $100 million. I don't see it.

    At a fwd PE of 54 for 2013 they would have to have 2013 net income of $50million...i don't see it.

    Reality is ....all we know is htat for the first 9months of 2012 they generated $2 million in operational cash flow.

    $2 million...with a "M".....-----

In October 2007 I was able to find an undervalued stock at the market highs that I picked in my weekly newsletter. US HOMES Systems would get acquired in less than 4 years by Home Depot for an 80% return while the S&P 500 index declined 7.8% over  the same period.
