11:39 EDTSTX, WDCAppeals court affirms ruling in Rembrandt case against Western Digital, Seagate
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed a lower court ruling in a patent infringement suit brought by Rembrandt Data Storage against Western Digital (WDC) and Seagate Technology (STX). In its 10-Q filed last month, Western Digital said, "After a favorable claim construction ruling by the court, Western Digital secured a stipulation from [Rembrandt] to dismiss the case. [Rembrandt] has appealed the Courtís claim construction ruling, and the parties await a hearing on the appeal." The asserted patents allegedly relate to specific thin film heads having solenoid coils, according to Western Digital's quarterly filing. Reference Link

12:57 EDTWDC, STXHigh-yield tech stocks could offer significant returns, Barron's says
Growth-focused investors have piled into Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Salesforce (CRM), and others, but if the "current situation" changes, high-yield stocks with compelling valuations could grab some of the spotlight, Barron's contends in a feature story. The publication names Seagate (STX), Garmin (GRMN), Qualcomm (QCOM), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), IBM (IBM), and Western Digital (WDC) as attractive plays, noting that their dividends -- ranging 3.2% to 7.3% -- look secure and offer nice rewards for those willing to wait for potential turnarounds or strategic transactions.

11:10 EDTWDCMicron the most likely target for Tsinghua stake, says Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Deepon Nag highlighted yesterday that Tsinghua Unigroup Chairman Zhao Weiguo told Reuters in an interview that his company was in talks with a U.S. semiconductor company, and that a deal could be announced as early as the end of the month. Zhao stated that a majority stake was unlikely due to regulatory concerns. Given recent moves by China in the memory market, Micron (MU) is the most likely target for Tsinghua, Nag wrote in a note to investors. Tsinghua recently announced a 15% stake in Western Digital (WDC) at a 33% premium to the company's prior closing price. A similar premium for Micron would lead to a 15% stake in Micron for $20 per share, which would equal $3.4B, the analyst points out. Shares of Micron are up 46c, or 3%, to $15.35 in late morning trading. Nag has an Outperform rating on Micron with a $30 price target.
