Overweight
MKS Instruments price target raised to $59 from $51 at Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Weston Twigg raised his price target for MKS Instruments (MKSI) to $59 saying the acquisition of Newport offers earnings leverage and growth potential beyond semiconductors.

The analyst expects order declines and limited demand growth for semiconductor equipment names, which he sees limiting share upside. Twigg keeps Overweight ratings on Applied Materials (AMAT), MKS Instruments (MKSI) and Entegris (ENTG) for their longer term potential.

Credit Suisse sees continued Semi upside, lays out top 2017 picks
Credit Suisse analyst John Pitzer says that despite outperforming in three of the last four years, shares of Semiconductor companies have more upside. Increasing barriers to entry coupled with slowing supply growth, further industry consolidation and diversifying demand drivers should allow Semis to outgrow global nominal gross domestic product for the first time since the late 1990s, Pitzer tells investors in a research note titled "2017 Outlook: Go Secular or Go Home." He views the Semi space as the "safest/cheapest vehicle with which to exploit Data Growth." Pitzer this morning upgraded Texas Instruments (TXN) to Outperform from Neutral and Brooks Automation (BRKS) to Neutral from Underperform. He also downgraded Rudolph Technologies (RTEC) to Neural. His top picks for 2017 in order of preference are Micron (MU), Texas Instruments, Marvell (MRVL) and Intel (INTC) in Semis and Applied Materials (AMAT), KLA-Tencor (KLAC), and Lam Research (LRCX) in the Semi Equipment space.
