Beaten-down Aixtron (AIXG +10.6%) skies higher after reporting Q4 revenue of €77.5M ($101.4M), soundly above a €66.1M consensus. EPS, hurt by restructuring efforts, came in at -€0.43, well below a -€0.07 consensus. Backlog fell 44% Y/Y to €79.4M and management declined to provide formal guidance, but it also thinks a 2H improvement in LED equipment is possible, and sees "incremental demand" from non-LED semiconductor apps for its MOCVD systems. Rival MOCVD system maker Veeco (VECO +4.1%) is up in sympathy.
