UBS maintains a 'Buy' on GT Advanced Tech (NASDAQ: GTAT) price target of $6.00 (from $7.00).

Analyst, Stephen Chin, said, "GT reported solid sales and EPS despite net orders of -$18M (gross orders of $14M with debookings of -$32M) as backlog worked down from $1.8B to $1.6B. We agree with GT’s 2H12 view of higher sapphire furnaces shipments and new orders as our analysis finds that China LED factory utilization rates are 60-70%. But, 2H12 gross margin on sapphire furnaces may stay at 31% versus 42% prior as we estimate GT is providing $9M/qtr of consumables to LED customers at cost."
