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 demand for NSX, VeloCloud and vSAN product lines. The company’s widening cloud customer base is driven by partnerships with the likes of AWS, IBM, Microsoft, Google, Oracle and Alibaba. Acquisitions like Carbon Black and Pivotal along with a growing Tanzu portfolio are expected to boost the recurring hybrid cloud subscription and SaaS revenues in the long haul. However, shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Apart from an unfavorable revenue mix, which is expected to hurt license revenues, margins are anticipated to remain under pressure due to heavy spending on hybrid cloud and SaaS portfolio. The company scrapped its first-quarter and fiscal 2021 guidance due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak." (5/11/2020)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "April quarter license billings impressively sustain mid-teen growth, despite compute license decelerating in-line with our preview. FY20 guidance maintained and likely embeds slowing incremental Dell synergies and a signal of macro caution as echoed by April Q reporting companies and our industry preview. Maintain Hold rating." (5/31/2019)
