What: Shares of Veeco Instruments (Nasdaq: VECO ) closed down more than 11% after analysts expressed concerns over pricing and overcapacity in the LED marketplace. Industry peer Cree (Nasdaq: CREE ) also fell more than 10%.
Now what: Of the five, only one firm -- Sterne Agee -- said it continues to recommend clients buy shares. Too harsh? I think so. On a forward-looking basis, the stock trades for less than half the long-term profit growth rate analysts expect. Where do you stand? Would you buy shares of Veeco Instruments at current prices?
