Recession ending for Western Digital
The Register
Chris Mellor writes about Western Digital’s fourth fiscal 2009 quarter and how it maybe shows an end to the recession in the hard disk drive space.

“Western Digital results for its fourth fiscal 2009 quarter are signaling the possible end of the recession in the hard disk drive market, and it is poised to overtake Seagate in unit drive shipments. World number two hard disk drive manufacturer WD saw fourth quarter revenues of $1.928 billion, down three per cent from the previous year’s $1.99 billion, but up 21 per cent sequentially, and easily beating Wall St expectations. It had previously set guidance for revenues of $1.45 billion-$1.60 billion.”
