Stratasys Outperforming 3d Printer Peers

According to a recent earnings recap piece, Pacific Crest’s Weston Twigg favors Materialise NV (ADR) within the space allocated to its type of business, saying Materialise NV “continues to outperform peers,” and therefore “remains our best idea in 3D printing.”

Citing a Q4 beat and 2016 guidance exceeding the research firm’s projections, “Materialise is demonstrating its unique position within the 3D printing segment as it benefits from high growth in its software and printing services, even as demand for 3D printers has remained soft.” Pacific Crest also sees long-term improvements for the company based on its innovative approach to problem-solving within the medical and metal environment. “We expect manufacturing revenue to grow nicely over the midterm as metal printing services ramp and new verticals, such as eyewear, robot grippers and even shoe wear, gain traction.”
