10:54 EDTSSYS, DDD, ARCW, XONE3D printer makers fall after weaker than expected quarter from ExOne
Shares of 3D printer makers are falling after one of the names in the sector, ExOne (XONE), last night reported weaker than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: ExOne reported fourth quarter losses per share of 22c, compared with analysts' consensus forecast for a 4c per share profit. The company's revenue came in at $10.7M, missing the consensus outlook of $12.13M. ExOne provided fiscal 2014 revenue guidance of $55M-$60M, which was also below analysts' consensus estimate of $61.56M. The company said that its machine revenue fell 22% last quarter versus the same period a year earlier due to the type of machines it sold. On a positive note, however, ExOne sold 12 printing machines last quarter, up from eight during the previous quarter. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Brean Capital analyst Ananda Baruah recommended using today's weakness in 3D printing stocks 3D Systems (DDD), Stratasys (SSYS), and ARC Group (ARCW) as buying opportunities. ExOne's weaker than expected results do not reflect on demand for products from 3D Systems and ARC Group, Baruah wrote. Moreover, ExOne said that it had seen delays primarily for its higher end Sand core/mold printers, which are not an area of focus for 3D Systems, ARC Group, or Stratasys, the analyst believes. The number of metals printers sold by ExOne increased to five last quarter, up from two during the nine months before the fourth quarter. This upswing is slightly positive for 3D Systems and ARC Group, which are concentrating more on 3D metals printers, according to Baruah. The analyst reiterated Buy ratings on 3D Systems, Stratasys, and ARC Group. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, 3D Systems fell 2.8% to $60.90, Stratasys lost 1.3% to $114.74, ARC Group fell 2% to $30.75, and ExOne sank 9% to $39.75. Another name in the sector, Voxeljet (VJET), retreated 1.4% to $29.
