A "highly reliable source close to Seagate" tells Eric Savitz Seagate (STX) isn't going to buy OCZ Technology (OCZ +2.4%). OCZ, which was up over 10% earlier today on a report from The Register suggesting a deal came close this summer, has given back most of those gains. Between The Register's report and a July BSN scoop that proved to be inaccurate, someone feeding OCZ buyout rumors might have a very active imagination. (also)

    all that news is very, very old. Eric provided nothing of substance. Nobody said the deal was still on, nor does a Forbes blogger statement mean that the deal is officially over.

    "active imagination" is one way to put it; illegal manipulation is another...I hope the SEC looks into the rumors and makes sure there was no illegal activity associated with these public conjectures.

    When OCZ management starts buying or selling and exits its quiet period then i will know for 100% that a buyout is a no go. Until then I will just watch and wait. Old CEO obstacle is gone.
