    why are folks insiting on shorting this stock -

    Your point is well-taken however, you have to base your post conclusion on some sort of factual, for argument to hold weight.

    I not against shorting stocks. Being a day trader by profession will adopt my trading accordingly ; whether short or long, makes no difference to me whatsoever. If the trade will dictate that specific approach - I will pull the trigger. I have said it before and will repeat. this is not a matter of shorts against longs. it is simply based on fact that,it is against every reasonable analysis to short a stock with these sort of numbers.

    imho, one can not establish a baseline valuation for this company and come to the conclusion of implosive perspective where every bone of these company screams growth.

    in short, VMware facts are these:

    2003 revs $100 Million
    2004 revs $218
    2005 revs $387
    2006 revs $709
    2007 revs $704
    2008 projected revs $1.2 Billion could top $2 billion.

    20,000+ companies now running VMware technology, including 99 of the Fortune 100 companies. growth is and will continue to be staggering, since only one seller with thousands of buyers.

    I don't suppose we can argue as to the validity of these data. regardless of position preference, this company based on current fundamentals can not be a short. just my opinion though.
