Seagate CFO: 'It's All About the Second Half'

Stocks in this article: STXMSFTINTC

Barclays analyst Eric Sterling, who has an 'Equal Weight' rating on the stock, also expects better things from Seagate. "With expectations for an improvement in enterprise demand in the 2H of CY14, we believe that Seagate can benefit from improved mix and stable pricing as we move throughout the year," he wrote, in a note. "Given the consistency of earnings and the stability of cash flow, we believe that shares of Seagate can continue to trade in-line with current levels and above long-term historical averages."

During his interview with TheStreet, O'Malley said that there's plenty of positive sentiment about the broader U.S. economy. "When I talk to a lot of economists, I think they feel that the back end of the year stays strong - there's a view that job creation in the U.S. is happening," he said.

Seagate increased its U.S. headcount during the quarter, according to O'Malley, ending the quarter with about 6,400 stateside employees, up from approximately 5,700 a year or two ago.

O'Malley, however, noted that some overseas markets are not as robust at the U.S. "In the BRIC countries, it's still slow," he said. "To me, China is a wildcard, it blows hot and cold."
