(DE) designs, manufactures, markets and services a broad line of precision beam etching and surface measurement systems used in the manufacture of microelectronic products.

" (2/15/2017)
- Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "VECO's 4Q16 results were largely inline with updated guidance. While 1Q17 revenue guidance is below consensus estimates, we believe it is due to timing of MOCVD shipments, with a robust outlook for the year and large backlog supporting a strong 2H17. In addition to MOCVD, we are more positive on growth opportunities in other areas in VECO's diversified product portfolio. Coupled with the synergies coming from the UTEK [N/R] acquisition and UTEK's recent order announcement, we remain confident VECO can deliver or potentially surpass our pro forma NG EPS of $1.10 in 2017 and $1.88 in 2018. We would use any weakness on the softer near-term guidance as a buying opportunity. Reiterate our Buy and PT of $30." (2/13/2017)
