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,

10:17 EDTXONE, SSYS, DDDAnalyst says new competition unlikely to derail 3D printer leaders
Additional competition in the 3D printer market is not likely to cripple the leading incumbent players in the market, 3D Systems (DDD) and Stratasys (SSYS), Oppenheimer wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that some believe the expected entrance of HP (HPQ) into the 3D printer sector will crush 3D Systems and Stratasys, Oppenheimer analyst Holden Lewis wrote that he disagrees with that thesis. The new players, including HP and Carbon3D, could find niches within the sector, but their printers will not perform every task, the analyst stated. Moreover, HP is likely looking to use technology that may be inferior and that is unlikely to enable the tech giant to dominate the sector, the analyst stated. Conversely, Carbon3D's technology "looks truly innovative," but little is known about it at this point, leaving many questions, according to Lewis. It is unknown if the printers can make final parts, he wrote. The printers from HP and Carbon3D "are not clearly superior, do-everything machines," and "it is far from clear" that they will move beyond a few niche areas, wrote Lewis, who kept Outperform ratings on 3D Systems and 3D printer maker ExOne (XONE) and a Perform rating on Stratasys. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In an article in February, Barron's warned that HP's expected entrance into the 3D printing market is " a wild card" for the sector, and quoted a William Blair analyst as saying that the company is "probably the clearest threat" to 3D Systems and Stratasys. According to Barron's, HP has said that its technology is ten times faster than current 3D printers. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, 3D Systems fell 1.6% to $27, Stratasys slipped fractionally to $52.70, and ExOne lost 1.8% to $13.41. All three are trading near their 52-week lows.
