Sears liquidity event a matter of 'when, not if,' says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Greg Melich said the preliminary Q4 financials released by Sears showed comparable sales were worse than he expected at the flagship brand and at Kmart and that its margins were also worse than he thought. Sear's cash situation has gotten worse, making additional debt issuance more likely in 2016, Melich tells investors, adding that he believes "a liquidity event is a matter of when not if," and may be possible in 2017 at the current burn rate. The analyst keeps a Sell rating on Sears shares.

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.

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.

Hallead expects offshore drillers to underperform through 2017 as he believes that the space's fundamentals will "remain negative for the foreseeable future." The analyst says that inquiries about rigs are focused on 2018, and he expects pricing pressure and lower utilization to remain prevalent n 2017.
