13:06 EDTSSYS3D 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.
