Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) keeps its position active in context of investors’ investment valuation, price per shares raised 0.91% to $16.64 with volume of 15.7 Million. According to Zacks, “The memory chipmaker Micron is likely to benefit from the improving prices of DRAM and NAND chips. Off late, DRAM and NAND prices have improved primarily due to a better product mix optimization and stronger-than-predictable demand for PCs, servers and mobiles. Moreover, industry experts believe that total demand could surpass manufacturing capacity, leading to a periodic shortage and higher pricing in the near term. We believe that any raise in prices will have a favorable impact on the firm’s top line, the benefit of which is likely to flow down to the bottom line. However, stiff competition from other major players still remains cause of concern. Moreover, the recent merger of Western Digital and SanDisk also sounds an alarm bell for the firm, as the combined entity will capture a large share of the SSD technology market.”
