EMC Corporation (EMC), VMware, Inc. (VMW): Why You Should Buy This Undervalued Tech Stock Now

Beside competition from IBM, HP and Dell, EMC’s most significant competitor is NetApp. EMC is in a better position that NetApp since its revenues are comprised of a wide range of products. Moreover, EMC has more than three times NetApp’s revenue. NetApp’s revenue derived from a single segment, enterprise data storage systems, with storage arrays contributing nearly 70%. On the other hand, NetApp’s revenue growth is mostly organic and its balance sheet is strong. NetApp is poised for continued growth. Having said that, I anticipate the tough matchup to continue in the years ahead.

The Foolish bottom line

At current state, EMC is fairly cheap comparing to peers such as NetApp, VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW) and HP. I can only assume the “arbitrage gap” is about to disappear in matter of months. I strongly believe EMC’s good old days are not over yet. At a price around $22 per share, there is a better probability for upside rather than downside. The Pivotal venture and its IPO potential offer EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) investors an additional channel to profit. Furthermore, EMC’s expertise and experience in successful takeovers will sure turn beneficial down the road. I truly believe that EMC is a good buying opportunity now, and will sure deliver better results than peer at least in the foreseeable future.
