11:28 EDTAMZN, DDD, MTLS, PRLB, SSYS, VJET3D printer makers fall after Amazon unveils 3D product store
Shares of 3D printer makers are falling after e-commerce giant Amazon.com (AMZN) announced that it would begin selling products made by 3D printers. However, research firm Piper Jaffray wrote that Amazon's news is actually positive for the 3D printing sector, including for one of its suspected partners, Materialise (MTLS). WHAT'S NEW: Amazon earlier today said that it would launch an online 3D Printed Products store. The store will sell a variety of customizable products made by 3D printers, including jewelry, toys, home decor and fashion accessories, the company stated. "The introduction of our 3D Printed Products store suggests the beginnings of a shift in online retail - that manufacturing can be more nimble to provide an immersive customer experience," said Petra Schindler-Carter, Director for Amazon Marketplace Sales in a statement. "Sellers, in alignment with designers and manufacturers, can offer more dynamic inventory for customers to personalize and truly make their own,” she added. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen wrote that Amazon's move validates the growth potential of the 3D printing industry. Additionally, the 3D printer products store will help accelerate adoption of 3D printing technology, Jensen forecast. After examining links on Amazon's store, Jensen believes that the e-commerce giant is partnering with a number of companies, including Materialise, on the initiative. Materialise is a Belgium-based company that specializes in 3D printing. Jensen kept Overweight ratings on Materialise, 3D Systems (DDD), Proto Labs (PRLB) and Stratasys (SSYS). He has a Neutral rating on Voxeljet (VJET). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Stratasys (SSYS) declined 1.9% to $102, 3D Systems fell 0.6% to $52.34, Proto Labs dropped 1.9% to $82.89, Voxeljet declined 2.8% to $17.96, and Materialise was flat near $12 per share.
