10:54 EDTXONE, DDD, SSYS, ARCW3D 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.

13:06 EDTXONE, SSYS, DDD3D 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.
