VMware Management is Desperate - VMW 1-year target: $5
The thing you short-term speculators don't get is that I'm here for the long term. If you don't believe me, take a look at my posts on ONT or GRMN board in recent years.
VMW is another grossly overbloated stock that will drop significantly. Yes, I'm sorry I did not come in here and post as the stock ran up 50%.
And no, I don't know who this alkgmhk guy is. He does seem to reply to all my posts on this board, but I don't believe he replies to my posts on other boards, as you can easily verfiy if you have an ounce of intelligence in you.
As for what stocks I recomment you go long, I would say pretty much none, if I had to pick one position.
But I have many positions, and my portfolio is weighted about 75% short and 25% long. My only long positions are MCD, WFC, and WMT, all of which are falling with the market, though not as much as most stocks. In general, all things being equal, I recommend you take all of your money out of any stock long positions.
Ideas for longs: must have low debt, first of all, and preferably a fair amount of cash on hand. Areas to look at: personal/home security (locks, safes, alarms, etc) is one idea, but I have yet to explore it much, also WMT and MCD and other stocks of companies that people who previously shopped at Guess?, The Gap, and Whole Foods (SHORT IT) will downgrade to.
