Hard disk drive demand environment degrading, says BlueFin

BlueFin analyst John Donovan said the demand environment for Western Digital (WDC), Seagate (STX) and Toshiba (TOSBF) for hard disk drives has been degrading, with September to date not being as robust as anticipated. He sees true demand tracking under 100M units in the quarter, but still sees drive suppliers on a path to over 102M units, he added. Pricing is "even more aggressive" than he previously feared, Donovan added.

Citi still sees Western Digital participating in Toshiba joint venture
Citi analyst Stanley Kovler says he continues to believe Western Digital (WDC) will be able to participate in the joint venture with Toshiba (TOSYY, TOSBF) and source NAND much like it has in the past, even after Toshiba signed a memorandum of understanding with the Bain Capital consortium for the sale of its memory business. If Western Digital takes a more commercial approach to resolution versus a legal route, the analyst sees a path to work with Bain and co-invest in Fab6. Kovler keeps a Buy rating on Western Digital with a $110 price target.

iPhone 64GB starting point a 'pleasant surprise' for NAND makers, says Longbow
Longbow analyst Joe Wittine said many had expected a 32GB starting point for the memory in the new iPhones, consistent with the 7/7+, calling the new 64GB starting point for the iPhone 8/8+ a "pleasant surprise" for companies in the NAND supply chain. Rising NAND consumption could help smooth the eventual downside of the cycle for Western Digital, helping it maintain greater than 40% gross margins for longer, added the analyst. Wittine keeps a Buy rating and $120 price target on Western Digital shares.

Western Digital likely to hold minority stake in Toshiba, says RBC Capital
After Japanese newspaper Nikkan reported that a consortium which includes Western Digital (WDC) would buy Toshiba's (TOSBF) memory assets, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani says that Western Digital will likely hold a minority stake in the assets, given anti-trust concerns. The analyst estimates that a 12%-13% stake would boost Western Digital's EPS by 25c-30c in 2018. Daryanani believes that the deal will be positive for the company as it will enable it to secure NAND bit capacity, prevent Foxconn/SK Hynix from getting the asset, and could boost its profits. He keeps a $115 price target and an Outperform rating on the stock.

Kisner maintains a Hold rating on Seagate peer Western Digital (WDC).

Seagate downgraded Underperform as another miss seems likely, says Cleveland
As previously reported, Cleveland Research downgraded Seagate to Underperform from Neutral. The firm's analyst said another miss and cut in guidance down is likely following checks that indicate Seagate is on track to finish towards the lower-half of guidance. Cleveland said there is no evidence of success in 10TB/12TB and channel forecasts are more optimistic on Western Digital/Toshiba ramp in 14TB. Further, margins are likely capped due to enterprise weakness, price pressure in 2.5' SMR and lower units.

Seagate downgraded to Sector Perform on softenting HDD demand at FBN Securities
As previously reported, FBN Securities downgraded Seagate (STX) to Sector Perform from Outperform and lowered its price target to $32 from $40. Analyst Shebly Seyrafi said industry comments by HDD controller companies in August, weak channel checks, and pricing concerns lead him to believes current consensus estimates are too high and need to be lowered. The analyst notes Broadcom (AVGO) believes HDD strength is unsustainable and Marvell (MRVL) had a cautious view on HDD demand near-term. Further, the analyst said HDD channel checks have softened since early August and pricing is expected to soften noticeably by the end of the current quarter.

Toshiba upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Kota Ezawa upgraded Toshiba to Buy saying the company's August 10 briefing indicated that there is reduced risk of additional WEC losses and the NAND business is generating "remarkably high profit." The probability of Toshiba rebuilding and remaining a going concern has increased significantly, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Ezawa now puts the possibility of Toshiba, delisting at less than 30%. The analyst has 430 yen price target for the shares.

Western Digital deal with Toshiba would eliminate overhang, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Karl Ackerman said a deal between Western Digital (WDC) and Toshiba (TOSBF) could be voted on by the end of August, which would remove an overhang on Western Digital shares. The analyst sees a deal being accretive through calendar year 2019 and also believes it would eliminate risks surrounding IP leakage and NAND technology leadership. Ackerman reiterated his Outperform rating and $117 price target on Western Digital shares.

Western Digital fundamentals still 'quite strong,' says BTIG
BTIG analyst Edward Parker says that Western Digital's (WDC) "strong preliminary results" indicate that its "fundamentals remain quite strong." The analyst says he doesn't believe that Toshiba (TOSBF, TOSYY) can sell its share in the chip joint venture while Western Digital is seeking injunctive relief. He adds that the intensity of the battle over the joint venture shows that there is widespread optimism about the memory sector. He keeps a $120 price target and a Buy rating on Western Digital.
