SanDisk Corp. (NASDAQ:SNDK), which develops NAND flash memory chips, soars following solid state drive maker OCZ Technology’s (NASDAQ:OCZ) reduction of its Q2 revenue guidance last night due to a shortage of NAND flash memory components. In a note to investors, Pacific Crest analyst Monika Garg claimed that SanDisk would benefit from this shortage, as it would have the ability to gain higher prices for its NAND flash memory products. Also, the company will have the ability to raise its share of the solid state drive market, as OCZ and other solid state drive markets are hampered by NAND shortages, Garg maintained. In mid-morning trading, SanDisk jumped $3, or 7.39%, to $43.60. The shares traded up $3.34 (8.23%) recently at $43.94.
