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 reported impressive first-quarter fiscal 2020 results. Both earnings and revenues increased on a year-over-year basis. Strong top-line growth was primarily driven by robust performance from NSX, VeloCloud and vSAN product lines. VMware’s dominance in software-defined data center (SDDC) and the expanding customer base in cloud driven by partnerships with the likes of IBM and AWS are positives. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, growth in license bookings has been muted for the last few quarters, owing to customer delays and macro-economic weakness in some key regions. Moreover, VMware’s margins are expected to remain under pressure due to heavy spending. Intensifying competition is also a concern." (6/5/2019)
  • 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."
