Can anyone rationally explain a PE ratio of 226 on this stock?
Even with a 100% growth rate - Remember, they are competing against MSFT and VMW profit margins are much smaller than MSFT. Even though it is a different type of company please take a look at RMBS (Rambus) - both are textbook examples of companies that are all hype and very little earnings. Rambus now trades around $14 which is a much better valuation for VMW than it's current bloated price. Someone please explain to all of us how this company can make anywhere near enough money to justify it's current stock price. Good luck to all.
