ATMI Inc. (NASDAQ:ATMI) seems to be on the receiving end of analyst ratings according to a majority of research firms. The semiconductor company is widely rated Sell by major analysts including UBS AG (NYSE:UBS) analysts, who downgraded the company's stock from Neutral to Sell on July 23.

Nonetheless, ATMI investor can draw some bits of confidence in its stock if they choose to believe in Zacks Investment Research analyst rating on the stock. The research firm rated the stock as a Strong Buy with a price target of $20.88 per share. At the time of their rating, ATMI had closed on the previous market day at $20.48 per share. Currently, the stock has already beaten that target as it closed at $21.40 on Jan 2, 2013.

There are a number of reasons why the Danbury-based company could perform against the odds in 2013, but it remains to be seen whether or not, ATMI can beat analyst estimates and projections.
