Dell tracker deal heading for investor showdown, Barron's says

Many holders of the tracking stock (DVMT) that it was issued at the time of the EMC acquisition are upset that Dell is proposing to buy them out for cash and newly minted Dell stock at a steep discount to the value of VMware (VMW), at a time when VMware's prospects look good, Andrew Bary writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Amid the behind-the-scenes drama, the tracking stock looks appealing because of the possibility that Dell will improve its offer, the report notes, adding that the downside seems limited because of the steep discount, relative to VMware.

Overweight
VMware price target raised to $172 from $160 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Raimo Lenschow raised his price target for VMware to $172 saying yesterday's announcements around Dell's acquisition of Dell Technologies (DVMT) "will remove a significant overhang." Potential long-only investors were staying on the sidelines due to uncertainty around Dell's review of strategic alternatives, Lenschow tells investors in a research note. Dell's transaction implies that VMware will remain an independent entity, at least in the mid term, which should bring the "attractive fundamentals back in focus," the analyst contends. He reiterates an Overweight rating on VMware.

Nutanix downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna
As previously reported, Susquehanna analyst Mehdi Hosseini downgraded Nutanix to Negative from Neutral and reduced his price target on shares to $33 from $55. The analyst believes Nutanix's OEM relationships are likely to become "less impactful over time," and also cited increasing competition as a headwind. Hosseini specifically said not to count out Microsoft (MSFT), noted that VMware (VMW) continues to add new features for vSAN while tightening integration with AWS, and expects an IPO from Dell in the coming months.

Fears of Google competition for Nutanix look overblown, says William Blair
Shares of Nutanix (NTNX) fell yesterday after The Information reported that Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is working on a potential hyperconverged infrastructure product that could conceptually compete with Nutanix, William Blair analyst Jason Ader tells investors in a research note titled "Fears of Google Entering HCI Space Look Overblown to Us". This is likely Google's response to what Microsoft (MSFT) has built with Azure Stack, which is Microsoft's HCI product that connects directly into its Azure public cloud service, Ader contends. He believes that if Google turn this into an actual packaged HCI product sold to a broad range of customers, it could create longer-term risk for Nutanix. However, thinks investors should consider that this appears to be another validation of the staying power of the on-premises market, which he says bodes well for Nutanix. Further, he points out that if Google were to decide to enter the HCI market more broadly, it would have a long way to go to establish itself in the enterprise against entrenched players like Nutanix and VMware (VMW). Google has not had great success selling into the enterprise historically and has little experience selling enterprise infrastructure appliances, Ader writes. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Nutanix.

Oppenheimer adds VMware to top picks, ups price target to $180
Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron raised his price target for VMware to $180 from $170 and added the shares to his firm's top picks. At the current valuation, the analyst believes there is still skepticism with respect to VMware's competitive positioning and ability to grow in the face of a cloud transition. However, his survey of VMware's customers indicate otherwise. Kidron left VMworld "incrementally positive" on VMWare's ability to execute on its any cloud/application/device strategy and drive further license growth. Further, his customer survey points to strong spending intentions and new product uptake ahead. The analyst stays bullish on VMware with an Outperform rating.
