VMware announces $500M stock purchase deal with Dell

VMware announced that VMware has entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Dell Technologies, Inc., under which VMware agreed to purchase $500M worth of VMware Class A Common Stock currently held by Dell's subsidiary, EMC Corporation. Separately, Dell Technologies plans to use the $500M proceeds to repurchase the Dell tracking stock for VMware, DVMT, as described in Dell's announcement. The $500M stock purchase is expected to be completed during VMware's first fiscal quarter ending May 5, 2017. The impact of the $500M Stock Purchase Agreement on VMware's Q4 fiscal 2016 and full year 2016 diluted share count and non-GAAP EPS is not expected to be material. This $500M stock purchase is the only stock purchase plan currently authorized. As VMware disclosed on its Q3 2016 earnings call, a previously authorized $1.2B stock buyback was completed in early Q4 2016. VMware intends to comment on additional plans for returns of capital to stockholders, if any, during VMware's Q4 2016 earnings conference call in January 2017.

VMware upgraded on cloud improvement, valuation at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James upgraded VMware to Outperform from Market Perform and established a $90 price target on shares due to cloud improvement, attractive valuation. Analyst Michael Turits said the recent partnership with AWS has reduced public cloud risk near-term and expects fundamentals to improve from a core virtualization pickup, growth in private cloud management, and reduced uncertainty relative to the Dell/EMC merger.

Amazon continues to attack large, emerging opportunities, says Oppenheimer
Commenting on the first day of Amazon's (AMZN) Amazon Web Services re:Invent conference, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein notes that AWS targeted Oracle's (ORCL) database services and highlighted more artificial intelligence functionality in line with Google's (GOOG; GOOGL)/Microsoft (MSFT). The analyst says Amazon also touched on its partnership with VMware (VMW), which should help enterprise migration. Helfstein believes AWS continues to attack large/emerging opportunities while continuing to simplify/automate the development process. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Amazon's shares.

VMware, Microsoft viewed as strategic in enabling hybrid cloud, says Oppenheimer
Following Amazon (AMZN) Web Services re:Invent conference, Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron says the company's development efforts appear to be around delivering more complete solutions, turning AWS into a platform for data management, analytics, and artificial intelligence. According to interviews conducted at the conference, the analyst says the shift to the cloud is going to accelerate in coming years, but implementation of public cloud is still complex. Additionally, the results suggest that VMware (VMW) and Microsoft (MSFT) are viewed as "most strategic" to implementing hybrid clouds. Further, Kidron says the survey is negative for most traditional on premise vendors, and believes the vendors most likely to see headwinds include Dell/EMC (EMC), NetApp (NTAP), HP Enterprise (HPE), IBM (IBM), and Cisco (CSCO).
