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.

3D Systems post-earnings rise mostly due to short covering, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen noted that significant cost cutting helped 3D Systems (DDD) exceed earnings expectations, but that its revenues were still below the consensus view as the company had a 30% year-over-year decline in system sales. Jensen believes the post-earnings strength in the stock is primarily related to short covering and he continues to see material downside for the shares, as he thinks the company will be challenged to sell industrial printers due to the entrance of HP (HPQ) and Carbon3D. He reiterates an Underweight rating on 3D shares, but raised his price target to $10.50 from $10.25 on the stock.

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.

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.
