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.

11:08 EDTDDD, SSYS, XONE3D printer makers tumble after ExOne results miss expectations
The shares of 3D printer makers are sinking after one of the smaller companies in the space, ExOne (XONE), reported much weaker than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: ExOne reported a per share loss of 70c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of a per share loss of 11c. The company's revenue came in at $8.9M, versus the consensus outlook of $16.9M. The 3D printer maker provided fiscal 2015 revenue of $40M against the consensus outlook of $55M. ExOne's revenue from 3D printers fell to $2.4M last quarter from $4.2M during the same period a year earlier. However, its revenue from 3D printed and other products, materials and services rose to $6.5M from $5.4M. "Machine sales growth opportunities remain very positive for ExOne and we continue to be enthusiastic about our efforts to establish a dominant market position over time," said ExOne CEO S. Kent Rockwell in a statement."But our customers' delivery scheduling and the complex revenue recognition model for certain of our products and technology have proven to be highly erratic for us to timely predict on a quarter-to-quarter basis," he added. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Oppenheimer analyst Holden Lewis said that ExOne's results showed some improvement. The company reported its lowest loss in the past 12 months, and its cash burn rate declined, while its spending eased, the analyst stated. However, the improvement wasn't sufficient, as it still reported a "huge loss" and negative cash flow, Lewis stated. Moreover, the company's machine sales, upon which its future depends, were "poor," the analyst contended. But Lewis said that ExOne's finances did not deteriorate from Q2 levels, while its costs "are under control," its financial model is "stable," and its non-machine business performed well and "hints at value." He kept a $14 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, ExOne tumbled 19% to $8.44, 3D Systems (DDD) dropped 3.5% to $9.75, Stratasys (SSYS) declined 5.5% to $25.25 and Voxeljet (VJET) slid 4% to $5.85.
