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.

10:01 EDTSSYSHP acquisition of Stratasys would make sense, says Jefferies
Jefferies noted that HP (HPQ) management, during the company's recent analyst meeting, said they were looking to partner with or acquire a 3D printing company. Analyst Jason North believes a larger acquisition is most attractive, as it would speed HP's time to the market by 1-2 years as the company acquires a sales channel. North said Stratasys (SSYS) makes the most sense given its strong reseller network, FDM jetting, stereolithography and direct metal laser sintering potential, and other technologies. The firm rates Stratasys a Buy with a $44 price target on shares.
