Western Digital delivered stellar fourth-quarter results. Growth was driven by a higher mix of Flash-based revenues along with increase in capacity enterprise products. Increasing demand for data center devices and cloud solutions is a key catalyst. Further, the company has started deploying 64-layer 3D NAND technology across its product portfolio and is expected to ramp up its 96-layer technology throughout the year. Western Digital expects the demand for high and mid-range capacity drives and increasing capacity of smartphones to support the higher rate of exabyte consumption in calendar year 2019. Further, the acquisitions of Upthere and Tegile Systems are helping the company in expanding its presence with a wider range of products and solutions. However, stiff competition from Seagate, Hitachi, Samsung and Intel in the storage coupled with pricing pressure remains headwind.
