Over the last 24 months we have seen stocks of companies involved in 3D printing soar. We have seen companies like 3D Systems (DDD) gain close to 500% , and Stratasys (SSYS) gain close to 400% in the last two years. Initial public offerings for companies like Exone (XONE) have also been extremely successful. Clearly, investors have been gobbling up anything 3D printer related within the stock market.
Up until today, there was no reliable way to diversify one’s 3D printer stock holdings, without having to buy shares individually within several companies. That has all changed. Today the first mutal fund devoted to additive manufacturing and 3D printing was launched by Outlook Funds trust. The fund will be managed by 3D Printing Fund Advisers, LLC, with John M. Meckler as Co-Manager and Chief Compliance Officer, and Alan M. Meckler serving as Senior Portfolio Manager.
3D Printing has evolved into a major industry. Start-ups and large corporations are behind the ongoing paradigm shift in manufacturing for both industry and personal use, and this change has produced a perfect climate to launch a fund that provides a convenient method for investors to participate in the growth of 3D Printing, said Alan M. Meckler.
The fund will trade under the ticker symbol TDPIX, and have a minimum investment of $2,500, with no minimum subsequent investment. The expense limitation will be 1.25%, and they intend to distribute theit net-realized capital gains on an annual basis every December. They will seek to invest at least 80% of all funds into both United States based and worldwide 3D printing companies. A “3D printing company” is defined in the prospectus as, “an entity in which at least 50% of the company’s revenues or earnings were derived from the development or distribution of the equipment and materials used in additive manufacturing or at least 50% of the company’s assets were devoted to such activities, based upon the company’s most recent fiscal year.”
