11:51 EDTSIRO, SSYS, DDD, BIOL, XRAY, ALGN3D printer maker Stratasys announces new digital dentistry printer
3D printing company Stratasys (SSYS) introduced a 3D printer for low-cost entry to advanced digital dentistry, which will be resold by dental biomedical company BIOLASE (BIOL). WHAT'S NEW: Stratasys introduced the Objet Eden260V Dental Advantage 3D printer, which combines 3-D printing technology with a small footprint and includes dental printing materials in sealed cartridges. With the device, dentists can fabricate stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, models for clear aligners, retainers and surgical guides on their desktop. BIOLASE announced that it has entered into a reseller agreement with Stratasys under which BIOLASE became a distributor of Stratasys' Objet30 OrthoDesk and a number of Design Series High End 3-D printers. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On February 14, William Blair analyst Brian Drab upgraded Stratays shares to Market Perform from Underperform, stating that the company's' recently acquired subsidiary, Makerbot, and its core business have both generated stronger than expected growth. The outperformance, combined with Stratsys' announcement of several new partnerships and its launch of several new products, made Drab more confident that the company's profits can grow more than 20% over the next several years, he had stated. Highlighting the way Stratayss and others in the industry are pursuing deals in many avenues, earlier this week research firm Jefferies said that its channel checks indicate 6 to 12 major industrial groups are in serious discussions with metal 3D printing companies about major orders for printers that will be integrated into existing production lines. PRICE ACTION: During late-morning trading, shares of Stratasys rose 0.7% to $128. Biolase shares are up over 12% over the last two sessions, but are virtually unchanged today near $3.17. OTHERS TO WATCH: Align Technology (ALGN) makes and markets a system of clear aligner therapy known as the Invisalign system. Other manufacturers of dental products include Sirona Dental (SIRO) and DENTSPLY (XRAY). Stratasys' largest competitor in the 3D printing industry is 3D Systems (DDD).

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 EDTDDD, SSYSResellers 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.
