I wanted Vmware (VMW), but ended up getting EMC, its mother company which is cheaper, and gives dividends October 23, 2013Posted by deminvest in investment.
I got EMC because I like its subsidiary Vmware, which is the heart of Cloud computing and has a market cap of $48 B with revenue of $22 B.
Vmware is hugely more expensive (P/E=40), doesn’t pay dividends and has a market cap of $36.00 B with revenue of $5B.
P/E number show a cheap company forecasted to grow quite well
Trailing P/E: 18.70
Forward P/E (fye Dec 31, 2014)1: 11.35
Past growth is not bad either:
Qtrly Revenue Growth (yoy): 5.70% is ok
Qtrly Earnings Growth (yoy): 7.80% is pretty good too
4 B cash result in (P-cash)/E = 17 now and below 10 as a forecast.
Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.60% is nice on a technology company owning the cloud computing big player Wmware.
