Toshiba Corp. has once again chose to hold off on making a decision on the buyer of its chip unit at a board meeting as negotiations with a Western Digital Corp. -led group have stalled, sources close to the matter said Tuesday. Maxim Group increased their price target on shares of Western Digital Corporation from $104.00 to $108.00 and gave the stock a buy rating in a research report on Friday, April 28th.

The other group bidding for the unit is a consortium led by manufacturing giant Foxconn that includes Apple. Western Digital's thought to have since retracted part of its bid. The data storage provider reported $2.93 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $2.51 by $0.42. It's now unclear how much involvement Western Digital desires to have in the business.
