GE says considering additional 3D printing acquisitions, Bloomberg reports

In a Bloomberg interview published Thursday, General Electric's (GE) 3D printing vice chair David Joyce said the company is considering additional acquisitions to expand its 3D printing business. Joyce, who didn't name specific acquisition targets, called the capability to print advanced parts "one of the most disruptive innovations I've seen in the manufacturing space in my 37 years here," according to Bloomberg. Shares of Stratasys (SSYS), ExOne (XONE) and 3D Systems (DDD) are up a respective 2.68%, 3.83%, and 1.44% in afternoon trading. Reference Link

Underweight
JPMorgan says use GE rally as selling opportunity
JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa recommends using Friday's rally in General Electric shares as a selling opportunity. A possible CEO change does not change the analyst's view that GE is an expensive stock. Discussion of an activist, who owns less than 1% of the company, trying to make changes is a re-run of the case made two years ago, Tusa tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not see much a GE activist can do. The company's "stubbornly low growth and secular challenges embedded in end markets" can't be fixed by a CEO, the analyst contends. Tusa keeps an Underweight rating on shares of GE with a $29 price target. The stock rallied Friday to $30.28 after Fox Business reported that CEO Jeff Immelt is on the "hot seat" with activist Nelson Peltz.

Underweight
General Electric price target lowered to $27 from $29 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa lowered his price target for General Electric to $27 and keeps an Underweight rating on the shares. The sell-side bull thesis is shifting focus away from the $2.00 earnings per share target in 2018 to free cash flow, which is "seemingly appropriately," Tusa tells investors in a research note. The analyst views the emerging bull case on free cash flow as "overstated and not plausible." He notes his new $27 price target still implies a premium 4% free cash yield and "solid" 3.5% dividend yield.

Outperform
General Electric shares set to move higher, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Nicholas Heymann believes shares of General Electric are set to move higher, not on management changes, but stronger fundamentals as the "external macro environment continues to improve." If GE achieves its more aggressive 2017 fundamental performance hurdles, the shares should be set to move steadily higher to the mid- to upper $30s, Heymann tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees potential upside to estimates from U.S. corporate tax reform and U.S. privately financed infrastructure modernization. He keeps an Outperform rating on GE shares.

FBR views Tesco as most likely takeover in Oilfield Services
FBR Capital analyst Thomas Curran says that within his Oilfield Services coverage, Tesco (TESO) has the highest probability of a straight acquisition. In GE Oil & Gas (GE) and Forum Energy (FET), Tesco has at least two potential strategic acquirers with "highly compelling logic," Curran tells investors in a research note. He believes a buyer could offer $10 per share. Tesco closed Friday at $7.30.

Stratasys likely to sell off on the 'weak' guidance, says Citi
Citi analyst Kenneth Wong expects shares of Stratasys (SYYS), along with peer 3D Systems (DDD), to move lower following the company's "weak" guidance for 2017. The analyst adds, though, that Stratasys' new management may have baked in some conservatism into the outlook. He keeps a Neutral rating on the shares following the company's Q4 results.

Piper more positive on Stratasys, sees 'meaningful downside' for 3D
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says his firm's 3D printing industry survey for Q4 indicated a sequential uptick in system demand, but not for all companies. The survey indicated Stratasys (SSYS) resellers saw a "meaningful" quarter-over-quarter improvement, while most 3D Systems (DDD) resellers continue to underperform, Jensen tells investors in a research note. Shares of 3D, are rallying on takeover speculation, do not reflect the underlying fundamentals, the analyst contends. He continues to see "meaningful downside" in the shares. Jensen is "incrementally more positive" on Stratasys following the survey, but reiterates a Neutral rating on the name.

Stratasys, according to feedback from 15 resellers, experienced a "meaningful uptick" in system demand for the second consecutive quarter in Q1, Jensen tells investors in a research note. He believes Stratasys is outperforming in the 3D printing space and upped his price target for the shares to $28 from $21. The stock closed the trading day up 30c to $21.30.

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.

voxeljet downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Kenneth Wong downgraded voxeljet (VJET) to Sell citing the loss of the company's largest customer coupled with weaker sales at the German facility in Q3. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $3.50 from $5 following voxeljet's earnings report. He expects "some sympathy selling" across 3D printing peers Stratasys (SSYS) and 3D Systems (DDD), but sees "fairly limited" downside due to the company-specific nature of voxeljet's weakness.
