What’s a cloud customer’s consumer product line?

Mr. Google can easily answer your question.

Some day it will grow and produce free cash, maybe

Of course you ignore the fact that they generated 116 million cash from operations. This is how they invest for growth, as well as pay down debt. Free cash flow is not a meaningful metric for a growth company.

Last year in Q1 WDC and many other stocks took a hit to sales due to the new “pandemic” global dilemma.

This year in Q1 most companies are blowing out sales to the upside as the US exits the pandemic, and can barely keep up with demand.

Last year = weak, this year = strong.

In that environment WDC posts a year on year revenue decline of 1%.

Why is this positive news? Because they cut operating expenses? Yes, that’s good, but tech stocks like revenue growth. Is WDC ever going to grow?

Knowledgeable investors look to the fundamentals and future, and not to a blip of the past. While you focus on numbers, and manipulate them to fit a preconceived notion, we focus on what those numbers mean.

With comments like this one has to wonder about the accuracy of the rest of the linked article…..

“ There are are six major NAND producers: Intel, Kioxia, Micron (the industry leader), Samsung, SK Hynix, and Western Digital.”

Yes, an editor probably screwed up. Mellor knows that Samsung is the industry leader, someone put that parenthetical comment in the wrong place.

The ‘stars and moon are aligning’ for one of the market’s most volatile stocks, chart analyst says
Lizzy Gurdus

One of the market’s most volatile stocks could be in a prime position for investors.

So says Craig Johnson, senior technical research analyst at Piper Sandler, who has had his eye on computer hardware maker Western Digital since it reported earnings in April.

After the strong first-quarter report, “it seems like stars and moon are aligning here … with both the fundamentals and the technicals on Western Digital,” Johnson said Friday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.”

Despite the stock being prone to unusual swings, Wall Street’s consensus estimates of its gains increased by about 25% following the results.

On the stock’s chart, “you’ve made this clear double bottom, and a close above $76 would start another leg higher,” Johnson said.

Western Digital ended trading down nearly 1% at $72.34 on Friday

Amazon ECS Anywhere finally sees general launch
By Mayank Sharma about 1 hour ago

Amazon’s cloud computing business Amazon Web Services ( AWS) has announced the general availability of its Elastic Container Service (ECS) Anywhere tool in a bid to extend the company's presence to on-premise deployments.

Amazon ECS is Amazon’s homegrown orchestration engine for AWS. With ECS Anywhere, AWS hopes to expand its footprint in the hybrid cloud and multi-cloud game, and take on the likes of similar offerings from other camps such as Azure Arc.

“Customers have told us that while they need to run containers on their own infrastructure, they don't want the hassle of operating their own cluster management software. They love the simplicity of Amazon ECS, the fact that it just works, and want the same reliability, scalability, and security of Amazon ECS wherever they run their applications,” said AWS VP of Compute Services Deepak Singh.

Check out our list of the best cloud computing services right nowHere are some of the best web hosting servicesThese are the best small business servers availableExtending the cloudAmazon explains that ECS Anywhere helps users extend the capabilities to machines running outside of AWS by connecting them to the same cloud-based control plane that’s managing their EC2-based deployments.

The big difference is that these machines can be inside on-premise data centers, virtual machines, or even edge environments running on Arm-based devices like a Raspberry Pi.

Explaining the implementation, Amazon says that all users need to do is create an activation key to register their machines, before installing the AWS Systems Manager agent and Amazon ECS Anywhere agent on all of them.

They can then deploy and manage their apps across these machines with Amazon ECS Anywhere using the same APIs, cluster management, workload scheduling, monitoring, and deployment pipelines they use with Amazon ECS in AWS.

Amazon adds that there are no upfront fees or commitments to use Amazon ECS Anywhere, and users pay only for the container instances they run.

This is a big deal for SSD vendors. If game FPS and graphical fidelity is closely tied to SSD performance, gamers will be willing to pay a premium for premium SSD performers like the WD SN850. Right now most SSD's are "good enough" for gaming and there isn't much of an incentive to pay a premium for top tier performance like there is for GPU and CPU.
