13:19 EDTWDC, STXWestern Digital slumps following competitor's guidance
Hard disk drive maker Western Digital (WDC) is sinking after its competitor, Seagate (STX), reported stronger than expected second quarter results, but provided lower than expected third quarter revenue guidance. Seagate added that industry-wide hard disk shipments dropped 3% during its second quarter, compared with the previous three months. Seagate also stated that it was having difficulty forecasting future demand for its products. In a note to investors earlier today, Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner wrote that Seagate's outlook was similar to the prognosis provided by Western Digital last week. Both companies expect the total hard drive market to be flat to down slightly during the first three months of 2013, according to the analyst. Scribner, however, raised her price target on Seagate to $40 from $30, as she believes that the stock warrants a higher price to earnings multiple in light of what she sees as "positive dynamics" in the hard disk drive market. The analyst maintained a Hold rating on Seagate. In mid-afternoon trading, Western Digital fell $3.17, or 6.52%, to $45.47, while Seagate tumbled $3.63, or 9.70%, to $33.78.

14:46 EDTWDCWestern Digital technical commentary ahead of earnings
The stock is trading just below its 50-day moving average heading into earnings. On a technical basis the stock does exhibit a topping pattern that could continue on weak news, or be resolved by a strong move higher. The first big level of support is at the $90 area. A move to that level, and eventually lower, would confirm the topping pattern has become dominant and would turn the trend bearish. Support below $90 would be at $88.23. If the news is a bullish surprise, initial resistance would be at the 50-day at $99.98. Thereafter resistance would be at $104.95 and $109.09.
