Baird analyst, Tristan Gerra, reiterated his Neutral rating on shares of Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX) and raised his price target to $37 from $32 after the company announced better than expected preliminary F1Q17 results. Upside was driven by strength in cloud-based storage exabyte capacity, while new high capacity HDD products are gaining traction.

Preliminary revenue is ~$2.8 billion, up from guidance of $2.7 billion. Preliminary GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin is 29%, up from guidance of 27%, driven by better-than-expected demand for high capacity enterprise HDD products.
