MU seems to only have Sandisk as a major competitor, and maybe HyJinx as it catches up. Knowing that Sandisk's chips are mainly produced for their own equipment and MU having increased it's customer base, Hyjinx basically has had to start from scratch. Fairweather MU investors are confused and fearing some disappointing news. Figure it's a great time to add another 5% to the portfolio. VicTech
