13:48 EDTDDD, SSYSStratasys advances after analyst calls it best positioned in 3D sector
Shares of 3D printer maker Stratsys (SSYS) are higher after UBS initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: 3D printing is "a disruptive innovation with a bright future," wrote UBS analyst Steven Milunovich. Stratasys is the best way to invest in this trend, partly due to its stronger execution than its peer, 3D Systems (DDD), along with the immediate potential of Stratasys' MakerBot unit, the analyst contended. Stratasys' earnings per share should rise 18% in 2014, while 3D Systems' earnings will be unchanged this year, Milunovich predicted. He set a $125 price target on Stratasys. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Milunovich initiated coverage of 3D Systems with a Neutral rating today. He thinks the company's near-term results are likely to be "bumpy" as it invests in its products and distribution this year. However, the analyst believes that 3D Systems' profits could surge in 2015. Moreover, the company's goals of increasing its revenues by 30% annually, excluding acquisitions, while raising its gross margin to 55%-60% are "aggressive but may be achievable," the analyst contended. He set a $62 price target on 3D Systems. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Stratasys rose about 3% to trade near $109, while 3D Systems was down nearly 2%, to $58.

07:50 EDTDDD, SSYSJefferies cuts price targets in 3D printing space after survey
After surveying 30 resellers in the 3D printing space, Jefferies analyst Jason North cut his price target for 3D Systems (DDD) to $14 from $22 and Stratasys (SSYS) to $50 from $60. A key investor discussion is when or if the industry will return to 20% growth, North writes in a research note. His survey indicates Q4 as the most likely time frame for Stratasys and later, if ever, for 3D Systems. The survey suggests weak Q2 results and a "muted" rebound in Q3, North tells investors. He prefers shares of Arcam (AMAVF) and Stratasys, both of which are Buy rated, to Hold-rated 3D Systems and Proto Labs (PRLB).

11:37 EDTSSYSStratasys upgraded to Buy with $45 price target at Dougherty
Before the open, Dougherty analyst Andrea James upgraded Stratasys (SSYS) to Buy from Neutral and set a $45 price target on the stock, noting that the firm's North American channel checks indicate the sales climate has improved since the stock was downgraded in April. James also said that the pullback in the stock over that time frame leaves it trading at a "historically low P/E multiple" and that the firm believes HP (HPQ) will compete more directly with others in the 3D space than it will with Stratasys.
