  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NOVA MEASURING develops, produces and markets monitoring and measurement systems for the semiconductor manufacturing industry. The company has pioneered the Integrated Metrology concept and is now expanding its activities by developing Integrated Monitoring and Process Control systems for CMP, CVD, Photolithography and Etch manufacturing processes. The company's systems for CMP process control, delivering systems for CMP process control, delivering have measured more wafers than all other metrology companies combined. " (10/18/2017)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are downgrading shares of Nova Measuring Instruments to a Hold rating from a Buy rating. With the stock hitting our target price and given that we just recently raised our estimates and target price (see our note, Nova Measuring Instruments: Multiple Growth Drivers Set Up Another Above-Average Growth Year; Maintain Buy, Target Price to $18, Feb. 14 ), we believe that there are limited catalysts for any additional changes to our current forecasts or our view of the industry. We believe the fundamental story also remains intact and that has not changed over the past two weeks. Given that, we are maintaining our $18 target price along with this downgrade." (2/27/2017)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "NVMI reported 4Q16 earnings inline with positive preannouncement and provided solid 1Q17 guidance on sustained momentum. With leading edge devices becoming more complex, we see a greater need for combining CD/thickness metrology and material composition measurements to achieve tighter process control, which plays well into NVMI's comprehensive product portfolio. We believe the strategy of combining OCD and XPS technology with advanced software creates a strong competitive advantage for NVMI, and should enable the company to continue to gain share. Coupled with a business model delivering increased margins, we see further earnings growth ahead. Reiterate our Buy and raise our PT from $18 to $22." (2/14/2017)
