What are Wall Street analysts saying about VMware stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about VMware stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "VMware is gaining from robust performance from NSX and vSAN product lines. The company has been consistently taking initiatives to diversify its product portfolio to include most of the IT infrastructure. The company’s dominance in SDDC along with expanding customer base in cloud driven by partnerships with the likes of IBM and AWS is positive. Moreover, continuing enterprise deal wins will drive growth in the long haul. However, heavy spending on R&D may weigh on its margins. Intensifying competition is also a concern. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (8/1/2018)
  • 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We view a reverse merger as a low probability risk and continue to remain positive on VMware fundamentals." (6/1/2018)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We remain on the sidelines given our view of full valuation and limited likelihood of significant upside to estimates. Additionally, the uncertainty from Dell’s strategic review process will likely keep weighing on the stock." (5/24/2018)
  • 4. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Strong license revenue results, largely as a result of booked DXC deal from October Quarter. Management maintained normalized FY19 revenue growth of up 10% y/y and well-above consensus EPS and FCF guidance, primarily due to a lower tax rate. Raising 12-month price target to $134 largely on lower tax rate, from $123. Maintaining Hold rating, especially as risks associated with a reverse merger appear material." (3/6/2018)
