Needham makes a bearish call on chip equipment stocks, and is downgrading Applied Materials (AMAT +0.1%), Ultra Clean Holdings (UCTT -4.3%), and Nova Measuring (NVMI -2.9%) in the process. The firm thinks order rates from major chip manufacturers are decelerating, and is less confident memory capex (ed: no doubt affected by Elpida's bankruptcy and falling flash prices) will rebound in the near-term. Thus, it thinks the Street's growth forecasts are too high.
