Needham & Company analyst Rajvindra Gill upgraded SanDisk (NASDAQ: SNDK) from Buy to Strong Buy with a price target of $90.00 (from $80.00).

"SNDK continues to fire on all cylinders, having reported record 3Q13 results which topped all ests. 4Q revenue and gross margin guidance also topped ests, as NAND supply/demand dynamics remain healthy," Gill comments. "SNDK should continue to benefit from an underlying favorable mix shift toward SSDs (specifically enterprise) and embedded, along with improving GM within each of its product lines. Additionally, SNDK plans to use 70% of its FCF to repurchase shares; thus we believe we could see $0.20-0.30 EPS upside to our ests just on stock buybacks alone. We are upgrading SNDK to a Strong Buy from a Buy, and raising our PT to $90 from $80, which would represent 40%+ upside from current levels."
