Nanometrics (NANO) Jumps: Stock Up 7%

Zacks Equity Research

Nanometrics Incorporated (NANO) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose nearly 7% on the day. The rise came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the trend for the company since Jan 23, as the stock is now down almost 5%.

In the last 30-day frame, the company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Nanometrics currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Other better-ranked stocks in the computer and technology sector include AAC Technologies Holdings Inc. (AACAY), AudioCodes Ltd. (AUDC) and Arris Enterprises, Inc. (ARRS). All three sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
