On Thursday, Shares of Seagate Technology PLC (NASDAQ:STX), lost -13.31% to $41.44. The stock attained the volume of 21.47 million shares.

Seagate Technology plc (STX), declared selected preliminary financial information for its fiscal first quarter of 2016, which ended on October 2, 2015.

These preliminary results compare to the Company’s formerly forecasted range for fiscal first quarter of revenue of $2.9 to $3.1 billion and non-GAAP gross margin of about 27%.

Seagate declared its 8TB nearline HDD products in September and anticipates to enhance its market participation in this growth segment over the next several quarters.
