What are analysts saying about Western Digital Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Western Digital Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Western Digital provided weak first-quarter fiscal 2018 guidance that reflects weak PC shipment as well as intensifying competition in the hard-drive disk (HDD) market. Moreover, Toshiba's decision to divest its stake in the NAND flash joint venture to Bain-capital led consortium is expected hurt shares, which have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, the company is benefiting from strong demand for both hard drive and NAND-based products from all categories of customers, largely driven by cloud and mobility based applications." (9/26/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We have been touting Tegile as a best-in-class external storage technology since 2013. Tegile compliments Amplidata building block, but success in $100B+ data center systems market will require significant incremental investments for hybrid cloud data management capabilities and sales & marketing, in our view. Despite low probability risk of losing some revenue from storage vendors, we view the acquisition of Tegile positively." (8/30/2017)
  • 3. Loop Capital analysts commented, "momentum all over the place," Baruah continued. For instance, revenue growth on an "apples to apples" basis grew 7 to 8 percent, which was "very attracted," but the company was also constrained from component shortages.In fact, Western Digital's revenue would have been even better in the quarter if it weren't for components being constrained, Baruah added. Also, the lack of any revenue upside to management's outlook could have also contributed to the stock's decline.Moreover, Western Digital's management may be "upset" with its September quarter guidance but this is a positive. The company guided its earnings per share to be in a range of $3.25 to $3.35 versus the Street's expectations of $3.22 per share."WDC felt compelled to guide the September quarter well above Street, a practice it generally dislikes and avoids if at all possible given their conservative bent; which means business is GOOD!" the analyst explained.Finally, Western Digital's cloud business is "literally ripping like never before" (7/24/2017)
  • 4. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe near-term, investors could share WDC’s concerns on its IP being shared. On the laterals, we believe it is positive for AVGO, more competitive for MU as if consummated the deal could enable Hynix be more competitive in NAND." (6/21/2017)
  • 5. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "Western Digital continues to report progress on the ramp of its 64 layer BiCS NAND Chip which along with constrained supply bode well for WDC.
