Wall Street Analyst Predicts Seagate Technology Stock to Increase by 21%

Seagate Technology Rallying Strong: Morgan Stanley Ups Its Price Target and Sees Great Potential in the Data Storage Industry

Seagate Technology (STX -0.56%) has experienced a significant rally over the past year due to improvements in the data storage industry and the anticipation of increased demand for artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The company’s share price has risen by 11% since the beginning of 2024 and climbed by 54% over the last 12 months, indicating positive momentum on Wall Street. Recently, Morgan Stanley upgraded its rating on Seagate stock from equal weight to overweight and raised its price target from $73 to $115 per share, suggesting that investors see great potential in the stock.

The data storage market is known to be cyclical, with demand and pricing trends fluctuating over time. Currently, Seagate appears to be in a favorable position with tailwinds supporting its growth. Morgan Stanley anticipates Seagate’s earnings for the year to be 25% to 30% higher than previously estimated, with AI-related storage needs providing a long-term boost. As demand for AI technology continues to rise, Seagate could be entering a period of significant growth.

While the exact impact of AI on Seagate’s business remains to be determined, it is clear that the company is well-positioned in the industry and stands to benefit from cyclical improvements. This aligns with Morgan Stanley’s positive outlook on the stock as a promising investment opportunity. With increasing demand for data storage solutions in the AI sector, Seagate could have a bright future in the tech industry.
