13:51 EDTHPQ, XONE, INTC, SSYS, VJET, DDDAnalyst 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.

10:14 EDTHPQHP best way to play coming PC sales outperformance, Citi says
Sales of PCs will be at least flat next year, before growing slightly in 2016 and 2017, Citigroup wrote in a note to investors today. The firm identified HP (HPQ) as the best way to play better than expected PC sales. WHAT'S NEW: Although many believe that PCs will become extinct, there are several reasons why sales of personal computers will begin growing again, Citi analyst Jim Suva contended. Sales of commercial PCs in emerging markets should increase over the long-term, as those PCs are aging, according to Suva. He estimated that commercial PCs in emerging markets account for 27% of the total PC market. Meanwhile, tablets were supposed to replace PCs, but tablet sales growth slowed to just 8% this year, indicating that tablets are becoming less of a threat to PCs, he wrote. Additionally, some believe that PC demand was inflated by a rush to replace computers running Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows XP operating system this year after the company stopped supporting XP, but Suva believe that PC demand growth in 2014 was more driven by a need to buy new computers following a lull in growth in 2012-2013 than by the XP situation. As a result, the analyst estimates that the XP phenomenon will only reduce next year's PC growth by 1%, versus the 3%+ reduction that investors fear. HP is the best way to play the PC rebound, wrote Suva, who raised his price target on the company's shares to $46 from $40 and kept a Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Suva raised his price target on hard disk drive maker Western Digital (WDX) to $125 from $110 and on its competitor, Seagate (STX), to $74 from $70, as he noted that the companies obtain about 50% of their revenue from PCs. He kept Buy ratings on both names. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Hewlett-Packard gained 2.7% to $38.32, Western Digital rose 1.7% to $106.30, and Seagate climbed 1% to $63.89.
