'Nano' in Firm's Name Fuels Stock's Gain

A growing fascination with nanotechnology seems to be doing wonders for the stock price of Nanometrics Inc. Too bad the company's only connection with the hot field of molecular-scale machinery is the first four letters of its name and a stock ticker, NANO. But that, apparently, is enough to confuse some investors. It has been a remarkable few days on the stock market for the Milpitas, California-based Nanometrics , whose true identity is perhaps more mundane than its name would suggest: it makes tools that measure the thickness of films deposited on silicon wafers.
