+ Watch EMC
on My Watchlist
EMC is a leading provider of network storage, backup software, and other information technologies.
A Grand Adventure Dividend Project holding. http://boards.fool.com/the-grand-adventure-121197.aspx
they need to spin off vmware- locked-up value; crowded market space; confusing non-gaap earnings and management that has continued to make excuses over the last four quarters
own the storage market, fairly innovative, buys the companies that are more innovative than them.
Real money pick. I like that it trades in line with competition(IBM,HPQ,etc) in terms of P/E. It's like buying VMW and Pivotal for a discount. I am ok with it whether they spin them out or not.
Maybe less if the merger goes through as of 9/22 their are still discussions with 4 major companies
EMC will lead in a slow but growing need for storage. I project this to be a slow mover but will have the earning power over the longterm to be a solid investment of capital. The ownership of VMware only gives EMC greater bargaining power in the coming tech market.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
EMC been stuck between 22-28 for long time, past 28 makr think it's time they will get to mid to high 30's
Stagnant, even with the growth drivers like big data , cloud stock is going nowhere ....
This stock is dead money. Sales slowing. EPS slowing. Good cash flow; they could pay a better dividend than 1.7%. High short interest. There are better places for your money.
EMC's RSA subdivision will probably start shedding customers from outside USA
storage & the CLOUD VMWare
clear product strategy and positioned in growth segments of IT
Storage is the future both for information explosion, data explosion, and cloud.
Tech laggard will be moving up, 5 stars in CAPS
