WESTERN DIGITAL WDC Stock Trend Analysis - CHIA! - Risk 1

Companies / Investing 2021 Jun 23, 2021 - 03:04 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Companies

The first on my list is a tech stock that I mentioned in passing in my last analysis Western Digital (WDC). founded in 1970 with it's core business being hard drives and memory chips where WD has made a brand name for itself in manufacturing reliable hard drives both internal and increasingly external high capacity drives, in fact I own more than a dozen WD drives with my latest addition being a 28tb My book Duo that was busily being filled with Chia plots that I will probably delete in the not too distant future when they fail to yield any Chia coins. So if the existing fundamentals of manufacturing quality hardware for the PC market was not enough then the CHIA crypto mania of farming Chia plots on ones hard drives that has resulted in an ongoing mad rush to buy up the worlds supply of external drives so that crypto maniacs can waste time, energy and resources trying to win a couple of CHIA coins by plotting farms that span tens of terabytes of storage per individual Chia farmer.


I too initially fell for the CHIA mania hype, though thankfully was never foolish enough to actually deploy fresh resources to this pointless exercise where the number of CHIA one plots will never be enough to keep up with the ever expanding network space, which is why I ceased plotting CHIA a week after i first started. In fact of all the crypto's I have looked at CHIA is probably the WORST of the lot! Anyway if one is contemplating plotting CHIA then do check out my video first that explains why it will be a total waste of time and resources with virtually a zero chance of winning any CHIA coins, which are largely in the domain of the giant Chia pools located in China..

CHIA Coins After 1st Week of Plotting 140 Plot 14tb Farm. Crunching the Numbers How to Win

Western Digital currently has a market cap of $20.1 billion, which I consider to be in the sweet spot for a smaller cap stock i.e. not too small so that it's at a low risk of going bust, whilst not too large that it becomes difficult to do X10. .WDC trades on an PE of 64 which is a little on the high side but the EC resolves to just 38 which means the stock is not expensive which is unlike a much of the over valued stocks that the likes of ARK funds are invested in such SQUARE on a PE of 300. This is the problem with funds, they are mostly hype which most investors rarely get past to actually look at what the funds are actually invested in. So in fundamental terms WDC is fairly priced.

The stock price clearly been stuck in a trading range pending a breakout higher, $85 is the top of the range with $35 at the bottom of the range. We can all hope for the price to collapse towards $35 for the perfect buying opportunity. However I really want to gain some exposure to this good higher risk stock thus I am setting the 1st buying level at an achievable $65, with the second buying level at $55 for a long-term position that is banking an an eventual breakout out of its trading range. Remember ALL of the stocks that soared into the stratosphere earlier this year were all once upon a time stuck in their own multi-year trading ranges before they went X10.

The bottom line is WDC is one of the steady as she goes high risk stocks i.e. it is actually not that high of a risk, but conversely this also means prospective performance is unlikely to see a X10 gain over the next 5 years, maybe X4 or X5 at best. That's the price one pays for LESS risk i.e. less potential upside. So WDC is definitely a stock I will personally be investing in especially given ridiculous demand for its hard drives from the CHIA crypto maniacs!
