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 manufacturer of hard disk drives (HDDs) in the U.S. The company is benefiting from robust adoption driven by strong demand of company’s storage drives. Moreover, increasing traction for mass storage solutions across company’s edge and enterprise markets remains a tailwind. Hints of PC market stabilization as reflected in the latest reports from Gartner and IDC bodes well for Seagate. 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. The company’s effort in the improvement of areal density with the ramping up of its heat assisted magnetic recording technology is another positive. Shares of the company have outperformed industry in the past year. However, stiff competition & customer concentration remain major risks." (7/16/2018)
  • 2. 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." (5/2/2018)
  • 3. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We think gross margin upside was likely a bit less than investors anticipated, however, and that STX’s opex and capex cuts have largely now played out. With that, we continue to see STX needing to target enterprise SSD growth as its NEXT phase of leverage, yet with that a market where it has so far lagged. Maintain NEUTRAL as we continue to see more upside potential in Western Digital (WDC, BUY, $78.87)." (5/1/2018)
  • 4. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are adjusting estimates and adjusting PT to $53 with good nearline demand and improving opex. However, lack of an in-house NAND roadmap keeps us on the sidelines. KeyPoints Good DecQ results and MarQ guide. STX reported DecQ rev/EPS/GM at $2.9B/$1.48/30.4%, inline with prior updated guide and consensus of $2.9B/ $1.35/29.9%. EPS came in higher on good Opex control. STX guided MarQ rev/GMs to ~2.7$B/30.5% (consensus $2.6B/29.7%) with seasonality offset by cloud and nearline demand." (1/29/2018)
