Today we’ll be discussing Charles Mizrahi’s latest 3D printing prediction and the “No. 1 small-cap stock” he says is “disrupting the $12 trillion global manufacturing industry.”
I discovered Charles’ presentation about this a few days ago, and after taking a closer look, I have to say he makes a compelling argument about the rise of 3D printing. Whether or not the company he’s teasing is a good investment is another story, but I think I know what it is.
In this article, I’ll walk you through Charles’ prediction, reveal the stock I think he’s teasing, and give you the heads up about what he’s selling to help you decide if it’s worthwhile.
Charles Mizrahi’s 3D Printing Prediction
The presentation we’ll be digging into is titled “One Small Company Is Set to Soar to the Top of a $12 Trillion Industry… For Those Who Act Fast — This Could Be the No. 1 Small-Cap Stock for 2021” and features Charles Mizrahi of Banyan Hill Publishing.
Charles begins the presentation by saying he will reveal the details on his No. 1 small-cap stock for 2021 and how it’s leading a revolution he expects to 8X in three years.

It’s quite a bold prediction.
But Charles is known for making these sorts of predictions.
For example, I recently published a full breakdown of Charles’ L5 Revolution presentation where he was talking about his “No. 1 Autonomous Vehicle Stock of the Decade.”
And I’ve seen him in numerous other presentations over the years making predictions about emerging trends, especially related to technology.
Basically, Charles uncovers what he believes are the best opportunities related to the latest trends and talks about these in various presentations as a “hook” to promote his service.
In this case, Charles’ prediction is all about the rise of 3D printing.
Specifically, his prediction has to do with industrial 3D printing and a “catalyst” that he says could drive up the stock price of the company he’s recommending within months.
What I’m talking about is industrial 3D printing. And as you’re about to see … 3D printing has an explosive “tail wind” that is going to propel my No. 1 small-cap stock much higher in the months ahead.
What’s the big deal with 3D printing?
As Charles points out in the presentation, there was much hype around 3D printing in the early 2010s, before it fizzled out, and he likens this to what happened with the personal computer and cell phone before these gained mainstream adoption.
The personal computer first hit the market in the 1970s but didn’t really “take off” until the late 1990s, early 2000s. Likewise, cell phones came out in the 80s and 90s, but it wasn’t until 2000 that they started gaining mainstream adoption.
According to Charles, 3D printing is on a similar trajectory.
He says he’s noticed this technology has started to “make economic sense” over the past two years because it’s saving manufacturers “boatloads of time and money.”
And over the past two years, I’ve noticed this technology has started to make economic sense. They are currently saving manufacturers boatloads of time and money. I mean big, household names … Nike, Ford, Boeing, you name it.
Charles likens investing in a 3D printing company, for example, the one he’s teasing, to buying shares of Microsoft in 1986. And talks about the benefits of investing in a small-cap stock.
In the context of the U.S. stock market, a small-cap stock is just a stock with a market capitalization of between $300 million to $2 billion.
The risks can be higher with these types of stocks because the company isn’t as well established, and there is often more volatility, but there are advantages.
The main advantage is that, because small-cap stocks aren’t as well established, there can be much higher upside potential if you choose the right stock and get in early enough.
Charles also points out that large investors are less inclined to invest in smaller stocks because they have to jump through more regulatory hoops, and given they’re playing with so much more money, getting in and out of smaller stocks can ruin the trade.
So Charles says that, even though larger investors may be aware of the potential in the 3D printing company he’s recommending, they may not act on it.
And he says smaller investors may be unaware of the potential because they don’t have the resources to uncover these types of opportunities.
Which, of course, is where Charles says he can help.
Long story short, Charles more or less frames his “No. 1 small-cap stock” as a massive, overlooked opportunity and talks about a “catalyst” that could trigger the stock to soar.
In the next section, I’ll walk you through the stock I think he’s teasing and shed some light on the “catalyst” he says could cause the stock price to soar in the coming months.
Charles Mizrahi’s “No.1 Small-Cap Stock” for 2021
Charles reveals the small-cap stock he’s teasing in a special report titled “My No. 1 Stock for 3D Printing’s Industrial Revolution,” which you can only get by joining his service, Lifetime Profits.
The trouble is, a subscription to Lifetime Profits costs almost $2K per year.
And even though it looks like a great service, I didn’t want to join it to see which stock he was recommending. So I decided to see if I could figure it out based on the clues he provides in the presentation, and I’m confident I know what company he’s teasing.
Here are the clues Charles provides in the presentation:
This tech stock … only a $500 million market cap … has already gained 100% in the last year … and I expect it will absolutely explode this year and beyond.
It uses a special kind of 3D printing technology developed at MIT in the early 1990s. And this small-cap company obtained exclusive license to this tech in 1996.
It’s called “binder jetting.”
The chairman of the board of directors alone owns about $102 million worth of company stock. Company employees collectively own more than $117 million.
In the third quarter of 2020 my No. 1 small-cap had revenue grow 60% from the same time last the previous year.
And it had a 164% REVENUE INCREASE from its 3D printing machines.
And he’s a mechanical engineer who knows exactly how his products work.
Sales of its flagship product more than doubled…
Based on these clues, I believe the stock he’s teasing is The ExOne Company (XONE).
This was one of the easiest stocks I’ve uncovered since I began looking into these presentations because Charles made it easy. Essentially, all I did was Google the term “3D printing technology developed at MIT,” which, as it turns out, is called “binder jet printing.”
Charles also says the company he’s teasing obtained the exclusive license to this tech in 1996, which led me right to ExOne because that is the company that owns the right to this tech.
Extrude Hone obtained an exclusive license to commercially develop inkjet 3D printing processes invented at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for use with metal, ceramic, and sand materials.
And according to the same page on the ExOne website, the CEO of Extrude Hone, Larry Rhoades, sold Extrude Hone in 2005 and transferred the assets of the 3D printing business to The ExOne Company, LLC. And apparently, the name “ExOne” is derived from “Extrude Hone.”
ExOne also fits with other clues Charles provides in the presentation.
For example, the CEO is a mechanical engineer, the company’s current market cap as of August 2021 is around $500 million, and it’s a small-cap tech stock.
From what I can tell, ExOne is a great company. And as per Charles’ presentation, 3D printing could be the next big thing, and the stock is cheaper now than six months ago.
So I guess it could fit with his description:
It’s a small-cap with a rock-star CEO … its riding a massive growth tailwind … and it’s still trading at a bargain price.
I’m not an expert stock picker, though, so I can’t advise you on whether or not it’s a worthwhile investment. That is something you’ll need to decide for yourself.
What is the “catalyst” that could cause the stock price to rise?
According to Charles Mizrahi, the “big catalyst” for the company he’s recommending has to do with the “market shift caused by the recent pandemic.”
And yet the BIG CATALYST for this stock — the market shift caused by the recent pandemic — is just starting to have an impact.
That tells me that this company still has tremendous upside potential.
According to Charles, the pandemic has caused a “massive market shift that has blasted the 3D printing revolution into full throttle” because, thanks to supply chain disruptions, companies have turned to alternatives to get the parts they need to run their business.
The virus cut work forces way down. Most factories were at half-capacity to keep people from getting infected.
This caused many essential machine parts, dyes, molds and other manufacturing essentials to vanish from the marketplace.
And it left many American manufacturers high and dry without spare parts needed to run their machines.
But instead of trying to manufacture these things on their own with old methods, they started turning to 3D printing to fill the gaps in materials and machined parts.
As a result of this increased demand, Charles says the company has a “large backlog of orders,” which could help ensure solid revenue over the coming years.
This company has a large backlog of orders … about two thirds of their total revenue for all of last year! or $39 million worth, to be exact.
I did some checking concerning the backlog Charles talks about, and according to an article on the 3D Printing Industry website, ExOne does have an order backlog. And based on that article, it’s a $48 million backlog, which is even more than what Charles suggested in the presentation.
Of course, nobody can predict how big the 3D printing trend will become, how successful this company will be, or how well its stock will perform, not even Charles Mizrahi.
But from what I can see, there is merit in what he’s saying overall, and as I’ll explain in the next section, he does appear to have a good track record.
Who Is Charles Mizrahi?
Charles Mizrahi is an investing expert with over four decades of experience.
He’s probably best-known for his work on a stock advisory service called Alpha Investor, but he runs another service called Lifetime Profits, which this presentation is designed to promote. And he contributes to a free weekly article for American Investor Today.
Charles’ started his career as a trader at the New York Futures Exchange when he was 20, and from there, he worked for firms like Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, and Citigroup.
He also founded his own investment firm called Hampton Investors, which, according to Charles, was “named the No. 1 market timer over seven years.” And according to his profile on the Banyan Hill website, he was once named the “No. 1-performing market timer” in the United States.
Eventually, he got into financial education, and over the years, he has recommended numerous stocks to his subscribers. Some of which, based on what Charles says, have soared.
For example, Charles says he recommended Cerence for gains of 444% in just over 14 months, Verint Systems, which gained 82% in six months, and Atrion for a 91% gain in 18 months.
Of course, to know how profitable someone’s recommendations have been, you need to see the average of all of their recommendations, the winners and losers. And the only way to know that is to join the service and dig through the archives of the reports he’s published.
And either way, assuming his overall average stock recommendation does perform well, there are no guarantees his recommendations will make you money in the future.
What Is Lifetime Profits?
Lifetime Profits is a stock advisory service run by Charles Mizrahi and published by Banyan Hill that is all about helping subscribers profit from “special-situation stocks,” which Charles says can yield massive returns. It’s also a carry-on from his lower-priced service, Alpha Investor.
With Alpha Investor, Charles says he uses his “Alpha-3 Approach” to identify stocks in high-growth markets run by great CEOs and that he says are “mispriced” by Wall Street.
But with Lifetime Profits, he introduces another step…
Once I find a company that meets all three of the filters for my Alpha-3 Approach, I look to see if there are any special situations surrounding it that could make its stock soar into the stratosphere.
It seems as though the “special situations” Charles is referring to relate to a “catalyst” like the one he discusses in his presentation.
Other “special situations” (AKA catalysts) Charles says he looks for are things like spinoffs, mergers and acquisitions, and “activist investors buying up shares.”
Regardless of the catalyst, though, Charles recommends companies he thinks have high growth potential as part of the Lifetime Profits subscription. So in that respect, it’s similar to Alpha Investor and other entry-level Banyan Hill services like Strategic Fortunes.
At least from what I can see, the main difference is that Lifetime Profits is a higher-cost subscription that caters to those interested in higher-risk, higher-reward stocks.
What do you get if you join?
The main thing you get access to as a member of Lifetime Profits is 12 stock recommendations over a 12 month period. Each month, for 12 months, you get a new issue of Lifetime Profits which outlines Charles’ latest stock recommendation and the reasons why he’s recommending it.
You also get access to the model portfolio, which shows you all of Charles’ active recommendations, and weekly video updates sent via email to keep you updated on the positions in the model portfolio.
And if you join through Charles’ “No. 1 Small-Cap Stock” 3D printing presentation, the one we’ve been discussing, you get some bonus reports.
The main one is called “My No. 1 Stock for 3D Printing’s Industrial Revolution,” which details his recommended 3D printing stock.
And the others are guides to help you get started:
- The Beginner’s Guide to Investing
- The Lifetime Profits Trading Manual
- The Lifetime Profits Portfolio Guide
All of this is contained in the member’s area website on the Banyan Hill website. So if you do decide to join, you can access everything in one place.
How much does it cost?
According to the Banyan Hill website, the cost to join Lifetime Profits is normally $5,000. But if you join through the presentation, it costs $1,995 for 12 months.
Can you get a refund?
There’s no money-back guarantee with Lifetime Profits, which is a bummer.
But Charles Mizrahi says that if at least five of his recommendations don’t rise by 100% or more, you can get another year of access to the Lifetime Profits service at no extra cost.
Charles Mizrahi’s “No. 1 small-cap stock” for 2021 appears to be a 3D printing company called The ExOne Company, LLC because it matches up with the clues he provides in the presentation.
However, to find out for sure, you need to join his Lifetime Profits service at the cost of almost $2K because he shares his special report titled “My No. 1 Stock for 3D Printing’s Industrial Revolution” with anyone who joins the Lifetime Profits service through the presentation.
Whether or not you join the service, or invest in the company he’s recommending, is only something you can decide. I can’t advise you one way or the other on that. Because for one, I’m not an expert stock analyst, and second, I didn’t join his Lifetime Profits service.
That said, I personally do agree with him about the potential of 3D printing in general.
While 3D printing seems to be a sector that has “fizzled out” to some extent, I think it has huge potential and could be a much bigger part of our lives in the years ahead.
Just keep in mind that there are no guarantees, and even though all types of investments carry risk, there are considerable risks involved in speculating on emerging tech companies. So you might make money following Charles’ recommendations, but you could also lose money.
Either way, I hope you found this post helpful, and if you’d like to share your thoughts about Charles’ presentation or Lifetime Profits service, feel free to comment below.
