NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT) was climbing higher on Tuesday after Goldman Sachs initiated coverage at a "buy" and as the company's management reiterated its financial guidance.
By late morning, shares had added 7.7% to $16.20.
After the bell Monday, GT Advanced Technologies said it had delayed the filing of its 10-K form, an annual summary of its financial performance as required by the SEC. The company said the delay was because it had not yet completed an internal review of a potential decrease in current tax liability.
Management confirmed the resolution will not have an impact on previously issued guidance and financial results reported on Feb. 24.
