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).

Oppenheimer kept an Outperform rating on 3D Systems.
