13:51 EDTDDD, SSYS, XONE, VJET, INTC, HPQAnalyst sees 3D printers moving closer to consumer adoption
With the launch of new, more affordable products this week, the 3D printing sector has moved closer to bringing about consumer adoption of its products, research firm Pacific Crest wrote. WHAT'S NEW: 3D printer makers made progress towards spurring consumer adoption of their products earlier this week at the Consumer Electronics Show, Pacific Crest analyst Weston Twigg wrote in a note to investors. But in the medium term consumer sales should remain relatively small, until prices drop further and the devices become simpler, the analyst believes. Nevertheless he expects the industry to grow at a 22% compound annual rate through 2020, driven by corporations. Not until 2017 will consumers begin buying 3D printer products in significant numbers, Twigg wrote. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The high valuation of the 3D printer stock is challenging, but the outlook for the industry is compelling, according to the analyst. Twigg identifies 3D Systems as his favorite name in the sector, but warns that the stock may not rise significantly in the near-term. Nonetheless he kept a Buy rating on the stock. He also has a Buy rating on another name in the sector, Stratasys (SSYS). Twigg kept a $96 price target on 3D Systems and a $145 price target on Stratasys. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, 3D Systems lost 0.6% to $95.56 but was above its earlier low point below $94. Similarly Stratasys lost 0.2% to $132.99 but was off its daily low. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the sector include ExOne (XONE) and Voxeljet (VJET). Intel (INTC) recently announced a partnership with 3D Systems and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) has said that it is seeking to enter the 3D printing market.

11:04 EDTHPQEMC advances after activist letter, report on HP merger talks
Shares of EMC (EMC) are rising slightly in a down market after activist investor Elliott Management disclosed that it wrote in a letter to the company's board that it had heard of "acquisition interest in EMC's assets on the part of several large companies." The firm called on EMC to pursue M&A opportunities and spin off its VMware (VMW) subsidiary. WHAT'S NEW: Since July, several large companies have expressed "acquisition interest" in EMC's assets, Eliiott wrote. Acquisitions of EMC's assets by these companies would be logical from a strategic perspective, the firm added. The parties that have expressed interest could afford to buy all of EMC or a number of its assets, according to Elliott. EMC should look to spin off VMware because owning VMware is holding down the value of EMC's stock and damaging its relationship with its customers, the investor stated. VMware is hurting EMC by competing with EMC's customers, Elliott explained. Elliott Management noted that is affiliates collectively own or have economic exposure to about 2.2% of the common stock and equivalents of EMC. WHAT'S NOTABLE: HP (HPQ) and EMC are still conducting due diligence on a potential merger, CNBC's David Faber reported this morning, citing sources. A deal is unlikely, but still possible, and would include a buy-in of VMware, Faber added. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, EMC rose 0.3% to $28.20, VMware slid 0.9% to $90.59 and HP dropped 1.2% to $34.80.
