How useful VMWare is, how many companies rely on it, and that it isn't going anywhere. A lot of traders may be skeptical and some will short but it doesn't matter, there are too many people out there that are involved and exposed to IT and it will coninue to get support. This stock is going no where but up as the company will continue to grow.
I work in IT and myself and everyone I know were licking our chops when we heard about this IPO and now we are swimming in cash.
99% traders are technology IDIOTS!!!! I should know. I worked at Bear Stears and an hedge fund as a system engineer. I've been in the tech industry for over 15 years. There's nothing like Vmware. The last two companies I worked with are on Vmware. In fact, Vmware is the buzz work in IT.
Good luck to those idiots traders who wants to short.
