11:28 EDTVJET, MTLS, SSYS, DDD, PRLB, AMZN3D 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.

13:47 EDTAMZNEarnings Preview: Wal-Mart sees FY15 net sales up 2%-3% vs. last year
Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) is scheduled to report third quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, November 13, with a conference call scheduled for 7:00 am ET. Wal-Mart, a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, operates retail stores in various formats under 69 different banners in 27 countries with its "everyday low price" philosophy. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.12 on revenue of $118.35B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.08-$1.17 on revenue of $115.17B-$119.67B. LAST QUARTER: Wal-Mart reported second quarter EPS of $1.21, in line with estimates, on revenue of $119.3B, against estimates of $119B. Walmart U.S. comp sales were flat for the 13-week period ended August 1, and U.S. net sales increased $1.9B, or 2.7%, to over $70B. Currency exchange rate fluctuations negatively impacted net sales by approximately $700M, the company said. Wal-Mart forecast Q3 EPS of $1.10-$1.20, with U.S. comp store sales relatively flat and Sam's Club comp sales, excluding fuel, slightly positive. and increased investments in Sam's Club membership programs. The company lowered its fiscal year 2015 EPS view to $4.90-$5.15 from $5.10-$5.45, against estimates at that time of $5.15. The new full year guidance reflects incremental investments in e-commerce and higher U.S. health-care costs than previously anticipated. The annual effective tax rate is projected to be between 32%-34%. NEWS: On its Q2 earnings conference call, Wal-Mart lowered its FY15 e-commerce sales growth forecast to 25%. In mid-October, Wal-Mart said that as a result of a tougher sales environment than it anticipated a year ago, it now expects to grow net sales for FY15 between 2%-3% on last year’s $473.1B. The company indicated in February that it expected net sales growth to be at the low end of its guidance provided last October of 3%-5%. The company sees fiscal year 2016 net sales growth of 2%-4%, or approximately $10B-$20B of net sales growth. The company said FY16 operating expenses will grow at a rate "somewhat faster" than sales growth and operating income will be flat to slightly down. Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon said the company will invest less in stores and more in e-commerce. Wal-Mart sees FY15 capital investments of $12.5B-$13B and FY16 capital investments $11.6B-$12.9B. Wal-Mart also sees FY16 e-commerce and digital spending of $1.2B-$1.5B. Ahead of a holiday shopping season that may be fiercely promotional, Wal-Mart is testing a program to match online prices from rivals including Amazon.com (AMZN), reported the Wall Street Journal. The company announced the "New Black Friday" will include five days of deals. STREET RESEARCH: Cleveland Research said Wal-Mart's trends softened in September and October following a strong August driven by soft traffic and less promotional activity. The firm believes Wal-Mart is positioned to maintain share during the holidays, but sees "growing caution" on the consumer spending outlook. Baird said expectations for Wal-Mart appear to be muted into the Q3 report. The firm believes sales may remain lackluster and margins may slip in the near-term, but sees international as an opportunity. During the quarter, shares were initiated with a Neutral rating at Sterne Agee. PRICE ACTION: Wal-Mart shares are up 6.9% over the last three months but are only up 0.8% year-to-date. In early afternoon trading, Wal-Mart shares are up 0.4% to $79.35.
