What are Wall Street analysts saying about Seagate Technology stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Seagate Technology stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Seagate is the second-largest manufacturer of hard disk drives (HDDs) in the U.S. We note that the merger between Western Digital and SanDisk has made it more challenging for Seagate to capture market share in the newer storage technology – SSD. Customer concentration is a major risk for Seagate, as the loss of a single order or customer affects the operating performance significantly. The disk drive market is highly competitive and has experienced drastic pricing pressure due to supply/demand volatility. The situation may compel Seagate to slash hard disk prices, in turn hurting margins. Estimates have moved south lately ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. However, synergies from acquisitions and product innovations remains a tailwind." (1/18/2019) 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "Western Digital did not participate in the gaming drive market last quarter." (11/5/2018) 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Results disappoint relative to WDC’s HDD results, likely due to yield ramp associated with 12TB high capacity enterprise HDD product. We expect a temporary rise in GM towards the high-end of target model in C2H18 as 12TB yields improve and cloud service provider demand continues to run “hot”. Slightly raising 12-month price target to $54, based on a 10x multiple of our introduced FY20 EPS estimate of $6.04, discounted back to today."
