Needham & Company maintains a 'Hold' on Hutchinson Technology (NASDAQ: HTCH).

Analyst, Richard Kugele, said, "HTCH’s negative F3Q pre comes as no surprise following the build cuts we had seen at HDD players for the final month of June and the September quarter. The slowdown in global macro conditions and the resulting mixed demand has worked its way through the HDD supply chain as we had anticipated, and compounded the issues that had already been plaguing HTCH. We continue to believe a recovery will be a slow process for the company and maintain our rating until we have more visibility."

Needham lowers FY12 loss from (1.72) to (2.08) and FY13 from (1.03) to (1.71)
