3 Stocks Ready for Huge Moves This Week

  1. 1. 3 Stocks to Watch This Week By PresenterMedia.com
  2. 2. 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD)
  3. 3. After a historic run-up, it’s been a tough 2014 for DDD investors
  4. 4. • 3-D printing caught the attention and imagination of investors coming out of the Great Recession. • Just those who invested in the idea behind a “computer in every home” profited in the 1980s and 1990s, many believe there will one day be a 3-D printer in every home in the coming decades. • As more and more investors jumped on the bandwagon, and 3D Systems continued to show impressive growth rates, the stock sky-rocketed • Since January, many have decided to take their profits, causing the entire sector to crater. • Some now think stock prices became detached from reality--at its height, 3D Systems sold for over 100 times earnings • 3D Systems and its counter-parts could still be lucrative investments moving forward. What’s Going on Here?
  5. 5. Wall Street Expectations What to really watch • The big knock on 3D Systems has been that its growth has come through acquisition, not strength of business. Listen in for the company’s organic growth rate. Anything above 25% would be great news for investors. What should investors watch?
  6. 6. • The company makes gyroscopes that can sense movements in hand-held devices • The Wii controller was the first and easiest example of this technology. • Today, smartphones and tablets use these devices as well. InvenSense (NYSE: INVN)
  7. 7. A stock on fire
  8. 8. Wall Street Expectations What to really watch • Some investors are betting against INVN because its stock is expensive—with negligible free cash flow • The company also relies heavily on a few key customers. The top three accounted for half of all revenue in 2013. • Actual earnings, as well as company guidance, will be the biggest factors to consider. What to look for…
  9. 9. • The company is the fourth-largest, domestic tobacco seller. • It recently expanded into e-cigarettes under the Zoom brand-name • Over the past year, has increased its exposure to real estate development Vector Group (NYSE: VGR)
  10. 10. A Solid Year for Shareholders
  11. 11. Wall Street Expectations Unknown. No analysts follow the company, and earnings have yet to be announced, though they were held on April 30th last year What to really watch • One of the biggest reasons investors like Vector is because it offers a 7.7% dividend yield. • This, however, won’t be sustainable unless Vector produces some serious free cash flow. • Also, pay attention to future plans for the real-estate business, which currently accounts for just 4% of revenue. What to look for
