When it comes to investing in 3D printing stocks, as of late, one needs to have a stomach made of iron to deal with the ups and downs within the market. Over the last two years we have seen the stocks of several of the major players within the industry like 3D Systems, Stratasys, and ExOne skyrocket, only to slowly fall back down to earth over the last several months.
With that said, there is little doubt that the industry is preparing for an explosion. Research reports from some of the most reliable analysts and research firms indicate that the market for 3D printers, and 3D printed goods and services, will expand exponentially over the next 5-6 years. With that growth comes an expansion of profits from the newcomers within the industry, as well as the the leaders.
As with any burgeoning industry, sometimes the best way to invest in it is through a managed mutual fund; an assortment of stocks, bonds, and money market instruments packaged together in the form of a single investment.
This is just what the 3D Printing and Technology Fund (TDPIX), (TDPNX) has aimed to provide the investment community since its inception back in January of last year. The fund, which has been growing steadily since its inception, has just opened up to investors outside the United States. According to Alan M. Meckler, the Lead Portfolio Manager, and John M. Meckler, the Co-portfolio Manager and CCO, these new terms will be on a case-to-case basis.
“3D printing has sparked interest around the world and we have received many requests to invest from non-US residents,” stated Alan Meckler. “Now investors worldwide may have the opportunity to invest in our US-based fund, enabling market exposure to 3D printing, robotics and other technologies. Accepting foreign investors further expands the Fund’s footprint in financial markets and marks another step in our efforts towards ease of access for individuals and institutions alike.”
As 3D printing stocks level off after their fall from over-inflated prices seen early last year, some analysts believe that perhaps many of these securities have fallen into oversold territory. Could now be the perfect time to at least take a starter position within the market, via a mutual fund? Perhaps, but I’m not a financial adviser, so as always, do your own research, and due diligence.
Non-US investors interested in a possible investment in the 3D Printing and Technology Fund are now able to request additional information about the investment process by simply sending an email to email@example.com or calling +1-207-347-2175 (from outside US) or 855-330-6225 (from inside US).
