11:51 EDTSSYS, ALGN, BIOL, SIRO, XRAY, DDD3D 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).

13:06 EDTSSYS, DDD3D Systems advances after analyst predicts guidance raise
Shares of 3D Systems (DDD) and other 3D printer makers are climbing after an RBC Capital analyst wrote that the company is "well-positioned" to raise its full-year guidance. Additionally, the analyst stated that the company had sold 100 or more 3d printers to a large aerospace company last quarter. WHAT'S NEW: 3D Systems will likely report in-line results for its June quarter on Thursday, but is poised to increase its guidance for the second half of the year, RBC analyst Amit Daryanani wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The company benefited from a deal with a large aerospace company last quarter, as well as launches of new products, the analyst stated. 3D Systems has already said that its growth, leverage and working capital should all improve, Daryanani noted. The company should also be boosted in the second half of the year from the integration of companies it has acquired, the analyst believes. He expects the company's operating margin to rise in the second half, and predicted that its growth excluding acquisitions would reach 30% or higher. Daryanani kept a $64 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Stratasys (SSYS), another player in the 3D printing space, should report slightly better than expected results for its quarter ended in June, and its fiscal 2014 revenue guidance should rise slightly, Daryanani forecast. The company is benefiting from stronger demand and new products, according to the analyst. Stratasys likely has the ability to raise its full-year profit guidance, but may decide not to do so in order to be conservative, the analyst wrote. If Stratasys doesn't raise its profit guidance, its earnings will probably beat expectations in the second half of the year, the analyst indicated. He kept a $126 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, 3D Systems jumped 5.5% to $55 and Stratasys (SSYS) gained 1.5% to $103. Other companies in the sector also advanced, with Voxeljet (VJET) surging 3% to $18, ExOne (XONE) rising 1% to $32.50, and Materialise (MTLS) gaining 3% to $12.
