Today I received a letter in the mail from Kessler Topaz Meltzer and Check LLP about a class action lawsuit against SSYS on behalf of investors who purchased shares between May 9, 2014 and Feb 2, 2015.

The complaint alleges that during that period
"defendants repeatedly issued positive statements regarding the Company's recently acquired subsidiary MakerBot ... and significantly raised the Company's 2014 guidance. As a result of these false and misleading statements and omissions, Stratasys stock traded at artificially inflated prices...allowing the Company to complete two stock offerings which netted the [sellers] more than $230 million."
There's more but you get the picture.

This letter appears to be a "fishing attempt" but as a relatively new investor who has lost quite a bit on SSYS thus far (and tolerated that since, Fool that I am, I'm in it for the long haul), I am not sure what how to respond (if at all) -- at least not yet.

Nevertheless, this new information makes me wonder if it would be better to get out and cut my losses now, given their (alleged) actions and reduced 2015 forecast.

Have others gotten a letter from this firm? I saw a post about 3 others -- what did these attorneys do? Divvy up the Stratasys list of investors so they could all get a piece of the (3D printed) pie?
