EMC + VMW + RSA + Iomega + all these other small companies they bought all these years + cash on the balance sheet + real estate + people = $17 They report better than expected revenue and earnings, still doesn't matter. And all this when the stock market is making new highs every day. Can you imagine what will happen if and when things turn the other way? Soon, I'm guessing, you will see the EMC execs start to dump all their shares. When was the last time you heard EMC mentioned widely on all the financial shows? Apple Computer is mentioned daily. If EMC is so cheap as some claim, why is it that no company has come forward to buy them? The best and only way to play EMC is to short it with everyhting you have. That's the only proven way to make money all these years. One last thing, total outstanding shares for the quarter went up by 65 million (from 2 billion to 2,065 billion). Who received 65 million shares as bonus this past quarter?
