Get in the Ground Floor of This $1 Trillion Industry

How many times have you studied the stock charts of Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG), Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) or Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) - and wished you could travel back in time to become an early stage investor in just those sorts of king-making companies?

We can't, of course, but I can offer the next best thing: I can tell you about the brand-new industry where the next stock like this will likely come from.

I'm talking about 3D printing.

Folks who've been following my work know that I've been predicting this sector's emergence for some time. Back in March, I told readers of our sister newsletter Money Morning that 3D printing was a $1 trillion industry in the making.

These Five High-Tech IPOs Are On Fire

Who says high-tech stocks have hit the skids?

Even the IPOs that many market watchers thought would fizzle have jumped out of the box.

The most recent is SolarCity Corp. (Nasdaq: SCTY) which debuted last week.

Instead of landing with a thud, shares of the solar panel installer soared nearly 50% on its first day of trading from a reduced offering price of $8 a share.

That left SolarCity tied for third place among IPO performers in the quarter that ends Dec. 31.  Even as of late yesterday, SolarCity shares were still up by 55%.

But SolarCity is just the latest big winner.  Here is a look at the other four winning high-tech IPOs based on their closing prices as of last week.
