Seeking Alpha: Entegris Is Another Small-Cap Play On Future Semi Spending

Investors aren't exactly in danger of running out of ways to play expected improvements in semiconductor capital spending in 2014. I've already talked about opportunities in companies like Ultratech (UTEK) and Mattson (MTSN), and both appear to offer significant value if and when next-gen capital spending increases.

Entegris (ENTG) is a different sort of play. Unlike Ultratech and Mattson, there really isn't much of a missionary aspect to sales - semiconductor manufacturers already understand the need for contamination control and advanced material handling, and Entegris already holds solid share in its core markets. That said, more advanced fab processes should require more filtration equipment and a larger sales opportunity for Entegris. While I don't necessarily see as much upside in the Entegris bull-case scenario (compared to Ultratech or Mattson, that is), I believe there is less execution risk here and still an opportunity to generate worthwhile capital gains.
