3D Systems stock is up 1.3% to $48.95 in pre-market trading on Monday.

While 3D systems continues to be the leader in the 3-D printing sector, according to Goldman Sachs, the industry is not yet mature enough for the analysts to get behind the stock fully. Goldman Sachs cites the risk of integrating multiple technologies as a reason for their trepidation.

"In our view, DDD's product portfolio is the most robust in the 3DP industry, however given the inherent execution risk with integrating multiple technologies we remain on the sidelines," said the analysts.


Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates 3D SYSTEMS CORP as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate 3D SYSTEMS CORP (DDD) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed - some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, premium valuation and weak operating cash flow."
