How about a good fund to get invested in the emerging 3D printing industry. Any known funds holding these stocks or concentrating in this industry? Thanks
I believe that would be too much of a narrow focus for a fund to specialize in. Besides, companies that are involved for the most part have it as a relatively small portion of their overall product line from a corporate standpoint.
3D printing is a very small part of a very large field and it's likely to stay a relatively small part. Even if a fund focused on manufacturing, 3D printing would be a speck in its portfolio. If 3D printing is your interest and you think it's a place to invest you should look for a company instead of a mutual fund. KennyO
There are really only 2 players in the exciting 3D printing business (3D, DDD and Stratasys, SSYS) so there probably aren't any funds concentrating on the sector -- yet.I've bought and sold 200 shares of DDD several times this year, making about $3500 in profits overall. I'm long the stock now and expect to keep it in my portfolio for the foreseeable future (not necessarily the same shares, because I will probably keep selling on the upswings and buying on the dips). For whatever my opinion is worth!Good luck-Ms C
I'll add that 3D printing has lots of applications in foundry, i.e. patternmaking. There's a Jay Leno video showing an imager/printer that let him make a cast valve part for his White steam car. I've lost the link but a search should reveal it. KennyO
