06:49 EDTSSYSResellers 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).

16:10 EDTHXLHexcel raises FY15 adjusted EPS outlook to $2.33-$2.43 from $2.26-$2.38
Consensus $2.38. The company said, "While the strengthening dollar reduces our reported sales, it provides a modest tailwind for our 2015 earnings. Our strong operational performance combined with expected 2015 constant currency sales and an estimated four-cent benefit from the strengthening dollar for the year, leads us to increase our 2015 adjusted diluted EPS guidance to $2.33-$2.43 (previously it was $2.26-$2.38). The company’s 2015 focus continues to be on manufacturing throughput, capacity expansion and superior execution to prepare for the substantial production ramp up in 2016 and 2017." Sees FY15 sales $1.86B-$1.94B vs. previous $1.9B-$2.0B, consensus $1.97B. "The decrease is due to the impact of the strengthening dollar on our Euro and British pound denominated sales, as our constant currency view of 2015 sales is unchanged," the company said.
16:08 EDTHXLHexcel reports Q1 adjusted EPS 58c, consensus 56c
Reports Q1 revenue $471.8M, consensus $486.36M.

12:35 EDTRTNCybersecurity stocks rally after Raytheon announces joint venture
The shares of cybersecurity companies are rising after Raytheon (RTN), a major defense contractor, announced that it was forming a cybersecuity joint venture with a company in the sector, Websense. Raytheon will acquire control of Websense as part of the deal. WHAT'S NEW: Raytheon announced that it had agreed to form a joint venture with Websense, which is owned by Vista Equity Partners. Under the deal, Websense will combine with Raytheon Cyber Products, a business unit of Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services segment. Raytheon will pay about $1.57B for an 80.3% stake in the joint venture. Additionally, Raytheon will pay $1.9B, net of cash acquired, to buy Websense. Of the $1.9B, $600M will be in the form of an intercompany loan to the joint venture. The combined company will be treated as a separate business segment of Raytheon, the defense contractor stated. John McCormack, the CEO of Websense, will be the CEO of the unit. The deal is expected to close next quarter. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Wells Fargo analyst Sam Pearlstein wrote that the deal will raise Raytheon's non-GAAP, 2015 adjusted earnings per share by about 6c. However, the transaction will lower Raytheon's EPS on a GAAP basis for 2015 by 48c, driven by amortization of intangibles, deferred revenue, and one-time costs, according to Pearlstein. The analyst kept an Outperform rating on Raytheon shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Cybersecurity company Check Point (CHKP) reported stronger than expected first quarter results today. Its Q2 guidance was roughly in-line with analysts' consensus estimates at the midpoints of the ranges given for earnings and revenue. Additionally, Check Point announced a partnership with another cybersecurity company, FireEye (FEYE). The companies said they would share threat intelligence to protect customers from modern advanced attacks. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading,Check Point jumped 5.4% to $86.14, FireEye rose 3.8% to $42.39, Palo Alto (PANW) gained 2.4% to $146, Fortinet (FTNT) added 1.7% to $34.28, Proofpoint (PFPT) advanced 1.7% to $58, and Raytheon slid 0.3% to $107.40.
