11:03 EDTVJET, GE, SSYS, JNJ, XONE, DDD, SYK3D printer makers tumble after profit warning from 3D Systems
Shares of 3D printer makers are sinking after the largest company in the sector in terms of market capitalization, 3D Systems (DDD), pre-announced lower than expected fiscal 2013 profit and gave a disappointing earning outlook for next year. WHAT'S NEW: 3D Systems reduced its fiscal 2013 earnings per share outlook to 83c-87c from 93c-$1.03. Analysts' consensus estimate was 96c. However, the company reported preliminary fiscal 2013 revenue of $513 million-$514 million, within its previous outlook of $500M-$530M. Analysts' consensus estimate was $514.24M. 3D Systems blamed its lower than expected fiscal 2013 EPS on "very significant R&D, manufacturing and marketing investments designed to accelerate revenue growth," along with weaker than expected demand for its parts and consumer products. For fiscal 2014, 3D Systems predicted that its EPS would be 73c-85c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $1.27. However, the 3D printer maker expects its fiscal 2014 revenue to come in at $680M-$720M, versus the consensus estimate of $671.29M. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek wrote that 3D Systems' opportunity in the professional and industrial markets is "only just beginning." 3D Systems' guidance is "appropriately conservative," wrote Misek, adding that his research suggests that the 3D printer maker is likely to announce deals with at least three major companies in 2014: Stryker (SYK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and GE (GE). Misek kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, 3D Systems tumbled 22% to $59.25, but the stock was well above its low for the day of $54.63. Likewise, another major 3D printer maker, Stratasys (SSYS), retreated 8% to $108.60, but was well off its low for the day of $102.20. Another company in the space, ExOne (XONE), sank 10% to $40.27, while European 3D printer maker Voxeljet (VJET) gave back 6% to trade near $32.

3D Systems (DDD) announced a partnership with Staples (SPLS) in a pilot of 3D printing services in two Staples stores in New York City and Los Angeles. Each Staples store features an immersive 3D printing experience center that lets consumers and small businesses create personalized products and use 3D printing hardware.

13:01 EDTVJETOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower again at midday, with the Dow being weighed on by a disappointing earnings report from banking giant JPMorgan (JPM). The reports from JPMorgan and peer Wells Fargo (WFC) certainly seemed to have more of an impact on market sentiment than the better than expected University of Michigan consumer confidence reading. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index jumped 0.5% in March, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment reading jumped to 82.6 in the preliminary April look, which was better than forecast and its highest reading since July. COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan and Wells Fargo kicked off earnings season for the major banks, with their stocks moving in opposite directions to mirror their earnings results. Dow member JPMorgan slipped more than 3% after its earnings per share and revenue significantly trailed consensus estimates, while Wells shares gained about 1.5% after the bank's profits beat the consensus forecast. Both noted, however, that their capital levels continued to strengthen during the quarter and both gave optimistic views on their ability to continue to reduce expenses. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was BofI Holding (BOFI), which rose 11% near midday after the company last night announced a deal to acquire H&R Block's (HRB) bank assets. H&R Block shares were down over 2% near noon. Also higher was mobile game maker Zynga (ZNGA), whose shares gained almost 3% after the company announced a new CFO and the stock was upgraded to Equal Weight by analysts at Morgan Stanley. Another gainer, Zygo (ZIGO), jumped 31% after the company agreed to be acquired by Ametek (AME) for $19.25 per share in cash in a deal that represents an aggregate enterprise value of $280M for Zygo. Shares of Ametek also rose 1.5% following the deal announcement. Among the noteworthy losers was 3D-printer maker Voxeljet (VJET), which fell 16% after its 3-million-share secondary offering of common stock priced at $15.00. Also lower was NQ Mobile (NQ), a recent target of noted short-seller Carson Block, which dropped over 13% after its profit missed expectations and the company disclosed that it found accounting errors in its recent reports. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 81.88, or 0.51%, to 16,088.34, the Nasdaq was down 15.30, or 0.38%, to 4,038.80, and the S&P 500 was down 6.89, or 0.38%, to 1,826.19.

16:39 EDTDDDOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower as selling pressure took hold early in the session and did not relent. The averages closed near their worst levels, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq down more than 3%. With today's close, each of the major indexes is now lower for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial claims for unemployment benefits fell to 300K last week, hitting their lowest weekly level since May 2007. The the timing of Easter and Passover, as well as other seasonal factors, however, may have lead many to discount the figure. Export prices rose 0.8% in March, while import prices grew 0.6%, both of which were greater than expected advances. In China, exports fell 6.6% from a year earlier in March, while imports plunged 11.3%. Economists had predicted year-over-year gains for both.

The company also added ignition lock cylinders to its safety recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. and said it expects to take a $1.3B charge in the first quarter due to recall-related repairs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was drugstore operator Rite Aid (RAD), which rose 54c, or 8.44%, to $6.94 after reporting earnings and revenue and that beat expectations and giving a revenue outlook for its fiscal 2015 that came in above estimates. Also higher following a better than expected earnings report was casual restaurant owner Ruby Tuesday (RT), which advanced 72c, or 12.08%, to $6.68. Among the noteworthy losers was data security solutions provider Imperva (IMPV), down $21.73, or 43.7%, to $28.00 which plunged 41% after the company slashed its first quarter profit and sales outlook.
