11:09 EDTVJET, DDD, XONE, AMAVF, SSYS3D printing sector weak after ExOne cuts guidance
Shares of 3D printer makers are falling after ExOne (XONE) last night preannounced lower than expected 2013 revenue. WHAT'S NEW: ExOne estimated that its 2013 revenue would come in at $40 million-$42 million, down from its previous outlook of $48M. Analysts' consensus estimate was $48.32M. The reduction in ExOne's guidance was caused by delayed sales of machines to its customers in Russia, India, Mexico, and France, according to the company. Despite the reduction in its guidance, the company stated that it had not lost any sales, and expects all of the delayed sales to be completed in the first half of this year. Meanwhile, in slides for a presentation today, 3D Systems stated that it expects to be able to double its revenue "over the next couple of years powered by about 30% organic growth." But the company added that it is willing to tolerate some pressure on its margins and earnings over this period in order to increase its growth and market share. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek wrote that ExOne's revenue miss highlights the risk for smaller companies whose orders tend to be inconsistent. One of the biggest risks faced by small 3D printer makers, including ExOne, VoxelJet (VJET), and Arcam (AMAVF), is that they sell only a few printers at high prices, the analyst added. ExOne's results, however, only reflect on that company, not the entire sector, the analyst added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday a major player in the sector, Stratasys (SSYS), preannounced higher than expected fiscal 2014 revenue but lower than expected fiscal 2014 profits, and the shares fell sharply. Misek, however, believes that Stratasys' higher than expected revenue outlook bodes well for 3D Systems (DDD), a major player in the sector. The analyst has Buy ratings on ExOne, Stratasys, and 3D Systems, and Hold ratings on Voxeljet and Arcam. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, 3D Systems fell 2.6% to $88.80, ExOne tumbled 8% to $57.20, Voxeljet slumped 3.7% to $40.80, Arcam lost 1.5% to $140, and Stratasys added 0.7% to $119.50,
