|Analyst opinion||VMWare reported its first quarter EPS of $0.86, beating the wall street forecast of $0.84 – helped by strong sales of its new virtualization software. VMWare had been trading lower since the announcement of Dell-EMC (parent company) merger last year due to fears the merger may harm VMWare’s data centre business. Today, VMWare announced that it would begin a $1.2 billion stock buyback after EMC shareholder’s vote on Dell acquisition. This buyback would boost EMC’s value in two ways – it would increase EMC’s and VMWare’s share prices, and also increase its market value post Dell acquisition, since the basis of the tracking stock being offered for the acquisition of Dell is valued at 0.111xVMWare stock price.|
