The Eden Prairie, Minn.-based company earned 40 cents a share, excluding items, up 38% from a year earlier, on sales of $49.7 million, up 24%. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected Stratasys to earn 37 cents a share on sales of $48.9 million.

For the current quarter, Stratasys expects to earn 39 cents a share, up 26%, on sales of $52.4 million, up 23%, matching Wall Street's view, based on the midpoint of its guidance.

Time to sell out to the Young Turks, shut down the blog and buy the island I've been promising myself....
