For a number of years, the only big buyer of VMW shares has been EMC. They pretty much cleaned out the market by buying almost all shares. Yet the stock continued tanking. That tells me there are no buyers in the market for this stock. EMC has pumped billions and now losing billions.
I've never understood the relationship concerning EMC's buying and I don't think anybody else has either. Actual insiders at BOTH EMC and VMW have been selling all their shares while 'supposedly' EMC is always buying VMW shares. To me, this really stinks of some accounting scam they've cooked up where EMC purposely loses money by buying VMW shares. There are all sort of crooked things companies do like this and you have to be very careful if you bank on this kind of supposed insider trading. If the actual insiders of both companies were BUYING, that would be a completely different story but they're doing the exact opposite, they are DUMPING. Virtual Ghost has gotten killed by betting on EMC's buying but he obviously has no understanding either about the reasoning behind the 'buying'. I really do think the game is over for all these cloud companies and the industry is now consolidating.
