Cleveland Research's channel checks indicate PC DRAM pricing is likely to continue to decline on a contract basis to approximately $17 by year end, along with server and mobile pricing. The firm's contacts indicate DRAM demand remains weak with no real indications of a rebound and supply remains in excess. Cleveland remains cautious on Micron and the DRAM market, and sees additional downside to consensus estimates.

07:28 EDTMUBaird downgraded Micron to Neutral on falling DRAM prices
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra downgraded Micron to Neutral from Outperform and lowered his price target to $15 from $36 on DRAM price concerns. Gerra believes blended DRAM pricing could fall 20%+ between now and next year, down to fully loaded costs before capacity cuts take place. The analyst said continued PC unit weakness, soft enterprise server, mobile DRAM weakness, and excess channel inventories are causing the current downturn. Gerra expects Micron's gross margin and earnings to bottom in the February quarter and sees little upside potential until then.
