Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 25

Moreover, the company now expects to produce revenue of about $2.1 billion in the current quarter, compared to its earlier guidance in the range of $2.35 - $2.65 billion.

The ongoing economic slowdown has been hurting the sales of tech firms. Seagate Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ:STX) also blamed softer demand for its products in certain markets as well as cautious spending from enterprise customers for slashing its outlook.

Discussing the revised guidance, CEO Dave Mosley said in a statement:

"Since our earnings call in mid-July, weaker economic trends in certain Asian regions have amplified customer inventory corrections and supply chain disruptions. We have also seen more cautious buying behavior among global Enterprise / OEM and certain U.S. cloud customers amid ongoing macro-economic uncertainties. These external factors are impacting near-term mass capacity demand while continuing to weigh on the consumer centric legacy markets."
