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 benefiting from robust performance of NSX, VeloCloud and vSAN product lines. The company has been consistently taking initiatives to diversify its product portfolio to include most of the IT infrastructure. VMware’s dominance in software-defined data center (SDDC) along with expanding customer base in cloud driven by partnerships with the likes of IBM and AWS is positive. The company has significant growth opportunities from rapid deployment of 5G. Moreover, continuing enterprise deal wins will drive growth in the long haul. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, VMware’s margins are expected to remain under pressure due to heavy spending. Intensifying competition is also a concern." (5/16/2019) 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "Jul Q license revenue beats consensus by 17%, but highlight of the quarter is EAA signed with AMZN, in our view. Oct Q revenue guidance slightly above consensus and FY19 revenue guidance increased, though OM guidance maintained. On raised FY20 estimates, raising our DCF-based 12-month price target to $133, from $126; continue to view SPLK as a secular Buy." (8/24/2018) 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Another strong seasonal performance drives above-guidance results. October quarter (F3Q19) license revenue guidance beats consensus by ~2% and FY19 guidance raised across the board. We raise our price target to $150, from $142, in accordance with raised guidance, but maintain our Hold rating as we see a period of beats and raises coming to a close, benefits from DELL channel tapering, and MSFT better positioned long-term."
