Timing:  The stock recently hit a six month low, but has rebounded in the last week.
Reason:  There is still tremendous demand for data storage devices. The popularity of new flash drives has caused the price of Seagate to fall on the expectation that hard disk drives will decrease in popularity. However, Seagate's drives are still included in many products.

Reason:  The market for computers may soften with the poor economy. In addition, Seagate's technology may become obsolete.
