UBS downgraded ATMI Inc. (NASDAQ: ATMI) from Neutral to Sell. PT chopped from $22 to $16.

Analyst, Stephen Chin, said, "Our weekly semicap order tracker shows Taiwan Semi (Nasdaq: TSM) (TSMC’s) (historically ATMI’s largest customer at ~13% of its total sales) 3Q12 semicap orders are tracking down -50% q/q and our analysis shows semi wafer starts typically trend inline with semicap orders. We estimate TSMC capacity utilization rates also may have peaked in the near term and typically demand for ATMI’s wafer start related products follow."

FY12 EPS estimate lowered from $1.25 to $1.20 and FY13 from $1.70 to $1.45.
