After survey, Piper cautious on 3D printing stocks into earnings

Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says his firm's 3D printing survey for Q3 indicates system demand "remained challenged" in the quarter. The below plan responses "significantly" outnumbered resellers indicating above plan, Jensen tells investors in a research note. The September quarter survey had the lowest percentage of above plan responses in the history of Piper's survey, the analyst points out. Jensen advises caution on 3D printing stocks into the Q3 earnings season. The analyst sees limited downside for Stratasys (SSYS) shares and more downside for 3D Systems (DDD) given its "internal issues and premium valuation."

3D printer, robot companies can benefit from manufacturing trend, says KeyBanc
After attending a manufacturing technology show, KeyBanc expects "short-cycle" OEMs to "remain focused on cost savings and efficiency improvement." 3D printing and "collaborative robot" systems can help meet this goal, according to the firm. The trend is positive for 3D Systems (DDD), Stratasys (SSYS), Materialise (MTLS), and Teradyne (TER), according to the firm. It keeps an Overweight rating on Materialise and Sector Weight ratings on the remaining companies named.

Stratasys technology interesting, but industry still paused, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner said she found the new vertical 3D printing technology introduced by Stratasys at its media and investor event yesterday to be interesting, noting that it is said to allow the printing of larger or even "infinite" size objects and increase printing speed. However, the 3D printing industry remains paused and the company offered no new financial information or timeline for the release of its new products, said Scribner, who keeps a Hold rating on Stratasys shares.

3D Systems strategy 'underwhelming,' says Pacific Crest
After 3D Systems reported higher than expected EPS but lower than expected revenue, Pacific Crest analyst Weston Twigg says he's skeptical of the company's strategy of creating a closed 3D printing ecosystem, aprtly because of the company's limited R&D budget and his belief that customers will try to find best-in-class providers in each segment. However, the analyst says that 3D Systems' analyst event next month could provide a positive catalyst for the stock. He keeps a Sector Weight rating on the shares.

Piper's 3D printing survey again showed challenged demand
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says his firm's 3D printing survey once again indicated system demand remained challenged in the March quarter. A number of the 68 3D printing resellers indicated the quarter came in below plan, "significantly" outnumbering the resellers that indicated Q1 was above expectations, Jensen tells investors in a research note. Many sellers stated that demand was "extremely challenging" during the month of January, the analyst adds. Jensen is still confident that 3D printing demand will improve in the second half of 2016, and continues to prefer Stratasys (SSYS) over 3D Systems (DDD). He believes, however, that Q1 results could be below consensus expectations.

Survey of industrial companies upbeat for 3D printing sector, says Pacific Crest
After surveying a number of industrial companies it covers, Pacific Crest says that over 50% of the companies it surveyed " plan to invest substantially in 3D printing capabilities," while "many companies" expect 3D printing to be used for production within five years. Moreover, "most companies didn't agree that 3D printing was overhyped," the firm stated. However, the firm adds that survey participants expressed "healthy skepticism" about the technology. Pacific Crest says that the survey results were "slightly positive" for the 3D printing names it covers- 3D Systems (DDD), Stratasys (SSYS), Materialise (MTLS), Proto Labs (PRLB), and ExOne (XONE). The firm continues to identify Materialise as its favorite name in the sector over the near-term.

He also believes its system sales pipeline remains "exceptionally strong" and that the company's guidance is attainable and even "modestly beatable." Jensen keeps an Overweight rating and $7.30 price target on voxeljet shares.

voxeljet pullback offers good value opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says the post-earnings selloff in shares of voxeljet provides a good value buying opportunity. The company's sales in Q2 were affected by a push out in system orders from key customers within Oil & Gas and Energy industries, Jensen tells investors in a research note. He lowered his price target for the shares to $5.70 from $7.30 but keeps an Overweight rating on voxeljet. Jensen remains positive on the company's 12 month outlook and pipeline for new products.
