I don't have VMW but have been in tne market for 23 years. Bit of advice: stop panicking and see this as an opportunity, rather than the end of the World. If you have the leverage, buy more (many more). Hopefully you bought this stock with intentions of staying in for a long while. Just sit and wait. Be patient and don't watch it everyday. It will go up, I assure you.
You mean to tell us that you don't know how to trade after hours and you don't understand margin rules, but you have nearly half a million dollars to throw at some bar bet over what the reaction to earnings will be on a hyperinflated stock in a bear market?
Yeah right. Funny guy.

I got in 7,000 shares so far and will keep adding up to 10,000 shares. This stock is going to open no less than $70 tomorrow morning. It is way overkilled due to the panic. The numbers they delivered aren't that bad at all.
Look what happened to AAPL. It is now even lower since earnings at 129. Cramer just said to wait and buy at 120. After taking big losses, most traders are now very cautious. Might be better to wait and see before you buy more. If you still want to get in now, selling naked puts might be a good strategy to acquire shares at a lower price.
