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 benefiting from robust demand for 16-terabyte products as production to higher volumes improves and sequential improvement in HDD exabytes shipments. Further, the company provided promising Q2 guidance. Increasing traction for mass storage solutions across company’s edge and enterprise markets remains a tailwind. Also, improving trend in PC shipments is a positive. We believe Seagate’s NAND-supply deal with Toshiba will help it in developing advanced HDD, SSD and hybrid solutions. Rapid adoption of nearline solutions is likely to boost competitive position against Western Digital. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, stiff competition from its peers in the disk drive market might result in pricing pressure and limit margin expansion." (1/9/2020)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe N-T tariff and supply chain overhangs remain a drag on demand, but L-T, improving nearline HDD with hyperscale and DC demand into 2020E should be positive." (9/19/2019)
