11:05 EDTXONE, SSYS, MTLS, DDD3D printer makers advance after Stratasys' beat and raise report
Shares of 3D printer makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Stratasys (SSYS), reported stronger than expected second quarter results and raised its guidance. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Stratasys reported Q2 earnings per share of 55c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 45c. The company's revenue came in at $178.5M, versus the consensus outlook of $156.6M. Moreover, Stratasys increased its fiscal 2014 EPS guidance to $2.25-$2.35 from $2.15-$2.25. Analysts' consensus estimate was $2.20. The 3D printer maker hiked its full-year revenue guidance to $750M-$770M from $660M-$680M, versus the consensus outlook of $685M. "We expect our positive momentum to continue as we begin 2H14. Reflecting our favorable outlook, we are increasing our projection for organic revenue growth in 2014 to at least 30%, and we are raising our financial guidance accordingly," Staratasys stated. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen wrote that Stratasys' results were "solid." The analyst continues to believe that the 3D printing space offers one of the best growth opportunities of any sector. Jensen recommended that investors be exposed to the sector. He kept an Overweight rating on Stratasys, but continues to recommend that investors avoid another name in the sector, 3D Systems (DDD). A third 3D printer maker, Materialise (MTLS), "could be really interesting," according to Jensen. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Stratsys surged 20% to $118.57. Meanwhile, 3D Systems gained 3.5% to $49.44, Materialise rose 6.5% to $12.11 and another 3D printer maker, ExOne (XONE), gained 8.3% to $32.39.
