    Corporate BS, from the article:

    "Critics say there is no across-the-board shortage of American tech workers, and that if there were, wages would be rising rapidly. Instead, wage gains for software developers have been modest, while wages have fallen for programmers.

    The liberal Economic Policy Institute reported last year that only half of U.S. college graduates in science, engineering and technology found jobs in those fields and that at least one third of IT jobs were going to foreign guest workers.

    The top users of H-1B visas aren't even tech companies like Google and Facebook. Eight of the 10 biggest H1-B users last year were outsourcing firms that hire out thousands of mostly lower- and mid-level tech workers to corporate clients"

    while CEO salaries have risen from 100X average worker pay to 320X since the 1980s.

    As I noted previously, some of the Analysts following this stock are shilling for hedge fund shorts and should be investigated by the SEC.

    You missed Brean Murray's recent recommendations. From posts on this board:

    3/28/12-Brean Murray believes Seagate shares could rise 25%-30% by July and that shares are underappreciated.

    4/9/12- Seagate Western and Digital Digital weakness overblown, says Brean Murray
    Brean Murray said the weakness in both Seagate (STX) and Western Digital (WDC) shares last week was overblown

    May 9, 2012 1:22 PM Brean Murray reiterates a Buy on Seagate (STX -0.9%) after meeting with CFO Pat O'Malley.

    STX at $28 on 3/5/12, STX hit $31 on May, 7th, 2012,

    STX hit $21 on June 7th, 2012, and was at $27 mid July,2012

    Between Goldman and JPM, I don't know who has been more wrong on the drive stocks or more negative over the years? Of course, we all know that doesn't matter if the NYC/CT hedge fund cartel is your primary client.

    Another firm that SAC used insider info to trade on was STX.

    I doubt the village idiot is being paid by anyone, but I'm sure your question will get nothing but psycho babble from him .

    I come to two possibilities:

    1. He is truly a psychopath
    2. He's a professional trader who trades STX stock.

    Evidence to support the trader hypothesis:

    1. He has been on this board 24/7 for 12 years
    2. He attacks anyone who raises concerns about the integrity of certain bank analysts who shill for the shorts and he goes into multi-post raves attacking anyone who mentions wall street corruption
    3. His obvious primary intent is to discredit anyone trying to lift up the public's understanding of STX or the games traders play with STX stock.
    4. His refusal to clearly state whether he is actually long or short on any position. After telling us STX was a flashing buy he then reels off a dozen posts bashing STX.
    5. His use of foul language and propensity to constantly lie.

    Overall, just another telling example of the scum that populates the investment world.

    Agree that the Cyber psychopath who has stalked this board for 12 years along with his chief antagonist, the hangman, have done a good job of destroying the board.

    Interesting comment "STX to continue to pay shills". Do you think the psychopath is on STX's payroll or a hedge fund lackey? Do you remember FINTAS who was definitely a paid shill?

    Disagree "please spare us all the OT topics on the state of the economy". FYI, some of us find those comments to be of far greater value in making money than listening to you whine on for years about HARM.

    "The Pros are slow to catch on!"

    Disagree, rather some of the SDRL Analysts are shilling for hedge fund shorts. IMHO, SDRL should have asked for a SEC investigation.
