PRCP - Why Perceptron May Be The Next 3d Tech Stock To Triple

3d Printer stocks, 3D Systemc Corp (DDD), and Stratosys (SSYS), have been some of the highest flying stocks of 2012. They have more than tripled and have future P/E ratios of over 40.

Anything closely associated with 3d technology has been getting attention, with even Organovo Holdings (ONVO), on the pink sheets, making a strong move this week.

It is not surprising as 3d technology is truly amazing and stands to revolutionize manufacturing in the way the internet revolutionized the digital information age. However, it is not just 3d printing that will revolutionize manufacturing. Enter the reason for this article.

I believe there is one overlooked stock that has created in their own words a "breakthrough technology" using 3d Metrology. Perceptron (PRCP), has developed the Helix non-contact metrology system with Intelligent Illumination (TM). The visionary breakthrough (no pun intended) is a world first in 3D metrology sensor technology. Mr. Blood illuminated further with the following advantages of this new development; choice of laser line number, density and orientation, 3D feature extraction and the creation of 3D point clouds. The 3D point cloud looks something like a radar-generated "weather map". This advance accelerates the evolution of production scalability from launch to ramp-up to full-scale manufacturing.

Management has developed this technology for various industries that they are just beginning to develop. As quoted in this article (link below), the once undreamed of Helix non-contact metrology technology is poised to become the new engineering metrology standard.

PRCP has a book value of $6.07 and closed today at $7.03. They reported strong growth in the first quarter and said they will have growth the rest of the year. They paid a $0.25 dividend this year. They have over $3 per share in cash, or approximately $26 million dollars and no debt. One analyst has them doing $0.44 EPS next year.

PRCP is healthy, profitable, and growing. They are in the hottest technology space of 3d technology, and about to roll out (in their own words) a breakthrough technology across many industries. This may be the most undiscovered gem I have seen in a long time. This reminds me of Uni-Pixel Inc (UNXL), another company with unique technology, that once discovered went from the current $7 range where PRCP is now, to just shy of $20. If i take the $0.45 estimate of PRCP and apply the 40+ P/E of the other 3d tech stocks DDD and SSYS, I get a share price for PRCP of $18. This may be one of the more exciting stocks to watch in early 2013. PRCP has approximately only 8.5mm shares outstanding and a float of only approximately 8 million shares.

Disclosure: I am long PRCP. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it. I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article. I am long at approximately $6.60 average.

Welcome to, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
