3D Systems (DDD) announced a collaboration with Intel (INTC) to mainstream the adoption of 3D scanning and 3D printing. 3DS will make available its consumer Sense scanning, editing and 3D printing software applications for Intel-powered Ultrabook, 2 in 1, AIO and tablet devices equipped with the new Intel 3D camera during the second half of 2014. Additionally, 3DS plans to make its 3D scanning technology available to developers as part of Intel's SDK to make it easier to implement advanced depth sensing capabilities to all kinds of applications. Brian Krzanich, CEO, Intel Corporation, said, "At Intel, we believe 3D scanning and printing is going to be a game changer for consumers, educators and makers. We are thrilled that we can work with the leader in 3D printing to bring to life the 3D camera for people using Intel devices."

10:25 EDTINTC$25B cloud boost seen coming for Amazon, Microsoft, Google
Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG) are all poised to get huge boosts from their cloud businesses over the next three years, research firm Pacific Crest wrote in a note to investors today. The combined revenue from their cloud initiatives should surge $25B over the next three years as companies move more workloads to the cloud from legacy IT systems, the firm believes. NEXT MAJOR CLOUD CYCLE: The revenue of Amazon's cloud business, AWS, could triple to $25B by 2018, according to Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson. Moreover, by 2018, AWS could account for 14% of the company's revenue and over 50% of its profits, up from 7% and 41%, respectively, today, the analyst predicts. Meanwhile, within three years, Microsoft's revenue from its commercial cloud business could jump 50% to $25B, the analyst stated. By 2018, the business could account for almost 25% of the tech giant's revenue and 15% of its profits, up from 15% of its revenue and very little of its profit today, the analyst added. Google's revenue from infrastructure as a service, a form of cloud computing, can surge 500% over the next three years to about $4.5B, Wilson believes. Additionally, noting that AWS' incremental operating margin came in at 51.9% last quarter, Wilson believes that investors are underestimating the profitability of cloud businesses. The analyst maintained an $800 price target and Overweight rating on Amazon, a $65 price target and Overweight rating on Microsoft, and a $910 price target and Overweight rating on Alphabet. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Intel (INTC), along with hard disk drive maker Western Digital (WDC) and Arista Networks (ANET), which supplies cloud networking solutions, should all benefit from the tremendous growth in demand for cloud platforms, Wilson believes. He kept Overweight ratings on all three of the latter stocks. Conversely, Wilson identifies EMC (EMC), HP Enterprise (HPE) and NetApp (NTAP) as "cloud share donors" and keeps Sector Weight ratings on their shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Amazon fell 1% to $525.80, Microsoft was flat near $52 per share and Alphabet Class A shares dropped 1.8% to $736.15.

13:45 EDTDDDStratasys falls after JPMorgan cuts on rising competition, lack of catalysts
Shares of Stratasys (SSYS) are falling after JPMorgan downgraded the company to Neutral, saying the 3D printer maker's financials could be pressured as clients curb spending and new competitors enter the space. NO CATALYSTS: Stratasys could see shrinking revenue and earnings through mid-2016 as strong competitors flood the low-end of the market and corporate clients rethink spending on the new technology, JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster argued Tuesday. Capital outlays remain muted across energy, industrials and manufacturing firms while medical device trends have also shown recent weakness, said Coster, leading him to downgrade Stratasys shares to Neutral and cut his price target to $19 from $24 on a lack of any significant catalysts for the next six months. The analyst also trimmed his outlook for 2016 earnings per share to 22c, though he sees 2017 EPS at 95c, with the above-consensus view reflecting the potential for Stratasys to benefit from cyclical demand recovery and restructuring efforts. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Stratasys have slipped roughly 4.6% to $16 while competitors 3D Systems (DDD) and ExOne (XONE) are up 5.4% and 4.5%, respectively.

08:14 EDTDDDStratasys, 3D Systems price targets cut at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jason North says his firm's 3D printing reseller survey indicates demand stabilized in Q4 in the U.S. and Europe. To reflect Asia and currency moves, however, the analyst trimmed his 2016 estimates for both Stratasys (SSYS) and 3D Systems (DDD). North cut his price target for Stratasys to $30 from $37 and for 3D Systems to $7.50 from $11. He keeps a Buy rating on Stratasys and Hold rating on 3D.
07:16 EDTINTCIntel upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Deepon Nag upgraded Intel to Oupterform and raised his price target to $35 from $34 on shares. The analyst believes the combination of easier comps and moderating competition in tablets and smartphones should result in a PC shipment growth acceleration into CY16. Additionally, Nag said Intel has been undershipping end-demand for all of 2015, which adds to estimates and potential upside as the PC supply chain replenishes inventories.
