Ocz Technology Group (NASDAQ:OCZ): SanDisk (NASDAQ:SNDK), which develops NAND flash memory chips, sees a boost after solid state drive maker OCZ Technology lowered its Q2 revenue guidance last night because of a shortage of NAND flash memory components. In a note to investors, Pacific Crest analyst Monika Garg wrote that this shortage would be beneficial for SanDisk, as it would be able to place higher prices on its NAND flash memory products. Also, it will be able to increase its share of the solid state drive market, since OCZ and other solid state drive markets are hampered by NAND shortages, Garg stated. In mid-morning trading, SanDisk jumped $3, or 7.39 percent, to $43.60. The shares closed at $4.35, down $1.01 or 18.84% on the day. They have traded in a 52-week range of $4.14 to $10.05.

Trina intends to “contest the allegations vigorously”. The shares closed at $4.03, down $0.16 or 3.82% on the day. They have traded in a 52-week range of $4.12 to $12.66.
