VMW better report a miss or the shorts will suffer dearly
nothing but a miss could justify the price action for the past month.
if they miss, the COO lied thru his teeth three weeks ago when he re-affirmed every single metric for this quarter and the rest of the year.
if they miss, I'll be shorting VMW with the rest.
BUT if they do not miss the stock will be up huge the next day.
I'm long and my money is on VMW, EMC and Pivotal. I strongly believe that VMW will trade above $90 by the end of the year or even much sooner. If they raise the guidance this thing will takeoff like a rocket.
