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. The company is benefiting from growing Exabyte demand across most of the markets it caters. Moreover, increasing traction for mass storage solutions across company’s edge and enterprise markets remains a tailwind. We believe Seagate’s NAND-supply deal with Toshiba will help it in developing advanced HDD, SSD and hybrid solutions. Its Nearline’s rapid adoption is likely to boost Seagate’s competitive position against Western Digital. . However, stiff competition from peers might lead to pricing pressure. Further, the disk drive market is highly competitive and has experienced drastic pricing pressure due to supply/demand volatility. Also, a declining trend in PC shipments is detrimental to business prospects of Seagate, which continues to depend substantially on PC sales." (3/19/2019) 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "Western Digital did not participate in the gaming drive market last quarter." (11/5/2018) Has Seagate Technology been receiving favorable news coverage?
