12:49 EDTSSYS, PRLB, DDD, XONE3D Systems well off lows as investors digest post-split guidance
Three dimensional printer maker 3D Systems (DDD) is well off its lows of the day after the company provided fiscal 2013 earnings per share guidance that may have confused some investors. 3D Systems executed a three-for-two stock split on Friday. If the stock had not split, the company said that its fiscal 2013 EPS guidance would have been $1.50-$1.73, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $1.58. If the split is factored in, however, the company fiscal 2013's EPS guidance was $1.00-$1.15. Some investors may have compared the company's post-split guidance to the pre-split consensus estimate. As a result, they may have erroneously believed that the guidance was much lower than expected. In early afternoon trading, 3D Systems fell $2.25, or 6%, to $35.70. The stock reached a low of $30.28 this morning. Stratasys (SSYS), another three dimensional printer maker is also falling significantly, losing 4.5% to $64.30. Two other three dimensional printer makers, Ex One (XONE) and Proto Labs (PRLB), are little changed.

18:13 EDTSSYS, DDDOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
The market began the session in negative territory following the release of second quarter GDP data below economists' estimates. Continuing this morning's slow start, the indexes churned in negative territory for the first half of the day before turning mixed near noon. The Dow and S&P generally lagged behind the Nasdaq, with the S&P narrowly edging into positive territory by session close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., gross domestic product was estimated to have grown at a 2.3% annualized rate in the second quarter, though expectations were for GDP growth of 2.7%. The government also upwardly revised its estimate of first quarter GDP growth to 0.6% from a prior estimate of 0.2% contraction in the period. Initial jobless claims rose 12,000 to 267,000 in the week ended July 25, which was a bit below the expected 270,000 first-time claims. COMPANY NEWS: Facebook (FB) reported earnings and revenues last night that topped expectations, but its shares slid $1.78, or 1.84%, to $95.21 as the social network's growth in daily averages users fell a bit short of the consensus forecast and may have missed the high, "whisper" expectations for its report... Shares of Whole Foods (WFM) sunk 11.61% to $36.08 and hit a 52-week low of $35.57 during the session after the company reported weaker than expected results and provided lower than expected profit guidance. Several analysts downgraded shares of the organic foods grocer in the wake of its quarterly report and outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was T-Mobile (TMUS), which advanced $1.82, or 4.91%, to $38.86 after handily beating analyst estimates and raising its outlook for yearly net customer additions forecast. Also higher following their earnings reports were Mondelez (MDLZ) and WWE (WWE), gaining a respective 5.03% and 17.48%. Among the noteworthy losers was Stratasys (SSYS), which fell $3.82, or 10.47%, to $32.67 after the company rescinded its fiscal year guidance, citing a lack of visibility on growth in the market. The news built on continued fears of overcapacity in the sector, leading to session losses for numerous 3D printer stocks, including an 8.94% drop for peer 3D Systems (DDD). Also lower was Qorvo (QRVO), which declined $9.99, or 14.17%, to $60.49 after its second quarter guidance significantly trailed analyst estimates, after which the stock saw price target reductions from BMO and Brean. Additionally, LinnCo (LNCO) declined $1.83, or 29.33%, to $4.41 after parent company Linn Energy (LINE) announced plans to suspend dividends and reserve roughly $450M from annualized distributions, which saw Linn also slipping 26.32% to $4.76. INDEXES: The Dow fell 5.41, or 0.03%, to 17,745.98, the Nasdaq gained 17.05, or 0.33%, to 5,128.79, and the S&P 500 advanced 0.06, or 0.00%%, to 2,108.63.

07:50 EDTDDD, SSYS, PRLBJefferies cuts price targets in 3D printing space after survey
After surveying 30 resellers in the 3D printing space, Jefferies analyst Jason North cut his price target for 3D Systems (DDD) to $14 from $22 and Stratasys (SSYS) to $50 from $60. A key investor discussion is when or if the industry will return to 20% growth, North writes in a research note. His survey indicates Q4 as the most likely time frame for Stratasys and later, if ever, for 3D Systems. The survey suggests weak Q2 results and a "muted" rebound in Q3, North tells investors. He prefers shares of Arcam (AMAVF) and Stratasys, both of which are Buy rated, to Hold-rated 3D Systems and Proto Labs (PRLB).

11:37 EDTSSYSStratasys upgraded to Buy with $45 price target at Dougherty
Before the open, Dougherty analyst Andrea James upgraded Stratasys (SSYS) to Buy from Neutral and set a $45 price target on the stock, noting that the firm's North American channel checks indicate the sales climate has improved since the stock was downgraded in April. James also said that the pullback in the stock over that time frame leaves it trading at a "historically low P/E multiple" and that the firm believes HP (HPQ) will compete more directly with others in the 3D space than it will with Stratasys.

11:01 EDTPRLBProto Labs acquires new facility to expand 3D printing service
Proto Labs has acquired a new facility to expand its 3D printing service into a larger and more efficient additive manufacturing space. The 77,000 sq. ft. facility will allow the digital manufacturing company to house all of its stereolithography, selective laser sintering and direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology under one roof. The new plant is scheduled to become fully operational in the first half of 2016, and will remain in the North Carolina area where Proto Labsí current additive facilities are located. In addition to moving its existing equipment into the larger space, the prototyping and low-volume manufacturer plans to increase its overall 3D printing capacity with new machines. Anchoring the expansion will be SLS and DMLS equipment, which produce durable nylon parts and functional metal parts respectively. As 3D printing continues to grow industry-wide, Proto Labsí plans to be well-equipped to accommodate the ongoing evolution of additive manufacturing.
