11:09 EDTDDD, XONE, AMAVF, SSYS, VJET3D 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,

08:05 EDTDDD3D Systems says Q2 bookings to-date ahead of same period in Q1
"Several weeks into the second quarter, bookings are ahead of the same period in the first quarter. Specifically, OEMs that paused to assess their own exposure to foreign currency and macroeconomic impacts are beginning to resume their capital investments and are making the purchases they deferred during the first quarter," said 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental.
08:04 EDTDDD3D Systems 'surprised, disappointed' by abrupt interruption demand late in Q1
"We were surprised and disappointed by the abrupt interruption in customer demand late in the quarter from several economic factors that we believe caused our industrial customers to defer their planned investments," said 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental. "We believe the combination of our expanding international business and growing concentration of manufacturing customers made us more vulnerable to the steep currencies decline relative to the U.S. Dollar and the aftermath of lower oil prices that curbed aerospace and automotive expenditures." The company believes that economic weaknesses attributable to several factors, including the decline in the Euro and Yen relative to the U.S. Dollar and the aftershock of lower oil prices, caused the majority of its aerospace, automotive and healthcare customers to curb new printer purchases during the quarter and curtail their materials and service purchases. In addition, certain metal and nylon applications and performance issues delayed the company's ability to sell additional printers during the quarter. The combined impact of these factors compressed the company's expected revenue growth for the quarter to 9% over the comparable quarter of 2014, or 17% at Q1 exchange rates. A stronger U.S. Dollar reduced total quarterly revenues by approximately $12M at comparable 1Q14 currency rates.

06:49 EDTSSYS, DDDResellers remain unhappy with 3D Systems, says Piper Jaffray
After surveying 62 3D printing resellers and service bureau operators, Piper Jaffray thinks the printing industry experienced a "modest downtick" in Q1 with "much more aggressive sales tactics" and "creative financing" used at the end of the quarter. Regarding Stratasys (SSYS), Piper's feedback did not point to above plan results as was the case in previous quarters. Regarding 3D Systems (DDD), Piper's survey indicated demand was "once again poor" with resellers still unhappy over the company’s channel management and product demand. Piper thinks Stratasys can match consensus estimates for Q1, but no longer views its guidance as conservative. The firm keeps a Neutral rating on both Stratasys and 3D Systems. Its Overweight rated names in the space are Materialise (MTLS) and Proto Labs (PRLB).

Canaccord lowered its price target on Stratasys to $82 from $100 to reflect a more back-end loaded year driven by lengthening sales cycles at resellers, a challenging integration effort for digital manufacturing, and a less likely imminent recovery for MakerBot. Canaccord maintains its Buy rating on Stratasys.
