Not a good story, it needs to do it on its own. Lets see if it can get back to 25.50 and from there if it has any strength to get back to its 52week high..I don't see this stock getting to 29 or so by year end unless VMW makes a big profit and increase in its future revenue.
EMC is capable of doing it on its own, but for last few months it has not done anything to bump the stock up. Results are what is keeping them down and not forgetting the VMW short comings. If VMW can bump its revenue and EMC too comes up with better results, then they surly can make it higher on their own. I am all for EMC to see it make 30 by year end and if it EPS is near $1.85 then the market will reward them and you may see shares in the range of 29 to 32.. I will settle for 31 by Oct..
