B. Riley FBR starts Nanometrics with Buy rating, $41 price target
B. Riley FBR analyst Craig Ellis last night initiated coverage of Nanometrics with a Buy rating and $41 price target. The analyst believes investors are overlooking the company's secular growth drivers and company-specific expansion potential because of lingering concerns over its China exposure. China accounts for only 10% of sales, yet Nanometrics shares are 30% below their 52-week high, Ellis tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes rising equipment intensity is a "powerful secular equipment spending driver" spanning all Nanometrics end markets.

Stifel analyst Patrick Ho updated his 2019 estimates for MKS Instruments and introduced 2020 estimates that incorporate the newly acquired Electro Scientific Industries, leading him to raise his price target on MKS shares to $128 from $100. The analyst, who noted he is projecting strong growth in its non-semis business in 2020, is also more optimistic on a recovery in Wafer Fab Equipment. He sees MKS Instruments being poised to benefit from this recovery and thinks it can outperform peers with its diversified approach, Ho said. He maintains a Buy rating on MKS shares.

MKS Instruments price target raised to $115 from $100 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Sidney Ho raised his price target for MKS Instruments to $115 from $100 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. MKS' semis business remains stable and is not yet at an inflection point, but its diversification strategy remains underappreciated, Ho tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes that with ~50% of its business not directly impacted by the semi cycle and with organic and non-organic growth opportunities in other advanced markets, MKS is set up well to be less volatile than its semicap peers and to potentially outgrow them. He views the stock as "mispriced" at current levels.

II-VI, Lumentum may be hurt by Huawei news, says Benchmark
After the U.S. Commerce Department added Huawei Technologies and 70 affiliates to its "Entity List," which bans the Chinese company from acquiring components and technology from U.S. companies without government approval, Benchmark analyst Mark Miller noted that prior restrictions negatively impacted II-VI (IIVI), which counts Huawei among its customers. He also believes Lumentum (LITE) may be unfavorably impacted as Huawei represents about 15% of its revenue. Huawei has contributed about 13% of Micron's (MU) sales in the last two quarters and shares of Western Digital (WDC) often trade in a similar manner to Micron, added Miller. Others that he sees potentially being negatively impacted by the Huawei news include IPG Photonics (IPGP), Coherent (COHR), nLight (LASR) and Veeco (VECO).
