    The memory industry is known for being always in transition. We have seen many memory cycles since Dr. Masuoka invented the NOR & NAND types of memory for Toshiba in 1980. The market has also changed its memory preferences.

    Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX) is a leader in the hard-disk drive (HDD) market alongside Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC). Seagate had done well after floods in Thailand disrupted supply and resulted in inflated prices of memory drives. But lately the company hasn't been doing as well, as its recent 4Q 2013 results were a mixed bag.

    By ANUP SINGH - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: MU, SSNLF, SNDK

    SanDisk (NASDAQ: SNDK), the leading flash-memory developing company, shared its quarterly results last month and performance was marvelous.

  • Three Companies That Will Perform Well No Matter What

    By Ted Cooper - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: BBBY, ORCL, SNDK

    Economic uncertainty has caused many businesses to remain uncommitted to future plans. Instead of investing heavily in growth or scaling down operations in preparation for disaster, a lot of companies are hoarding cash while they wait to see what happens next.

    It is unclear whether the economy will make a significant improvement or plunge into recession once again -- and even less clear when the move will happen -- but, eventually, something more »

    Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX) tumbled 15% last week as the hard-disk- drive market is being hit hard by the introduction of tablets and ultrabooks. Since late 2011, the stock is up fourfold. Question is; with the uncertain future of hard disk drives, can Seagate really move any higher?

    By Chris Lau - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: SNDK, STX, WDC

    Storage makers hit a wall of worry in the last few days, driven by weak quarterly results, a tepid outlook, and weaker profits. It is no secret that hard drive manufacturing is a mature market, but investors need to ask just one question: are storage devices just commodities set on a path of a permanent decline?
