    Lam Research's (LRCX -3.7%) proposed acquisition (I, II) of Novellus (NVLS +21.1%) is giving a lift to several of the companies' peers, as investors hope the merger of the third and fourth largest U.S. chip equipment makers will spur further consolidation in the downtrodden industry. UTEK +5.8%. CYMI +4.1%. NANO +3.7%. KLIC +4.6%. ASMI +3.3%. AIXG +3.5%. MKSI +3.2%.

    Stifel reiterates a Buy on chip/LED/solar equipment maker Nanometrics (NANO -0.4%) following its acquisition of Nanda Technologies, a German maker of equipment for inspecting chip defects. The firm believes the high throughput of Nanda's gear is a differentiator, and that the buy increases Nanometrics' addressable market by $300M-$400M. (October crash)
