The only other analyst covering the stock has a "hold" rating on shares. Bullish Case: Capstone Investments analyst Shebly Seyrafi initiated coverage of Quantum with a "buy" rating and $4.50 price target, noting that the company could be an attractive acquisition target for potential acquirers such as Dell (DELL), Oracle (ORCL) or NetApp (NTAP). "[Quantum] could be an attractive target as it offers attractive data deduplication technology and the company's price (less than $1 billion) is small enough to attract other companies for a 'tuck-in'-type acquisition," Seyrafi wrote. "QTM has a formidable data deduplication offering that is expected to roughly double in revenue this fiscal year."
