TheStreet Ratings rates 3D Systems Corporation as a hold. 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.

On the negative front, Arotech Corporation ( ARTX), down 16.8%, Pentair ( PNR), down 6.9%, Real Goods Solar ( RGSE), down 5.7% and Royal Philips ( PHG), down 5.6% , were all laggards within the industrial goods sector with General Dynamics ( GD) being today's industrial goods sector laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial goods sector could consider Industrial Select Sector SPDR ( XLI) while those bearish on the industrial goods sector could consider ProShares Short Dow 30 ( DOG).
