Following the earnings report, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen called the results "respectable," and noted that the 3-D printing space is likely to see strong growth in the future. "Q4 results were respectable and we believe the revenue growth and big backlog increase speak to the strong demand this space is experiencing," Jensen wrote in his note. He also said that while operating expenses were above expectations he believes that is largely related to the merger and expects expenses to decline over time. Jensen rates shares "overweight" with a $94 price target.
Shares of Stratasys rose in Monday trading, up 6.61% to $68.51.
