CNBC' s Josh Brown urged viewers to buy this right in front of the quarterly report. At least ithat call was not as bad as his call last year that everything in biotech was un investable because anything of value would have been bought already. Pathetic!
What are the debt covenants here? If balance sheet inventory is understated, then cash is overstated. This would mean they may not have enough cash to cover short term debt repayment due.
Management will initiate size buy back on way to taking company private. Management would probably rather be private anyway for the time being.
Stock gets downgraded along with two others. IACI is selling at 11.7x out-year EPS. The other two downgrades are selling at 20x. The IACI sell off is just as bad? Also, were estimates cut by the analyst?

Continued skepticism as I said before. You are being a historian and not an analyst. The industry consolidation is unprecedented. Seagate's investor friendliness with this dividend payout is unprecedented. You will see the difference. The 3.5x multiple is loaded with skepticism. Each P/E multiple point increase will be $5 upside in stock.
