Virtualization Technology News and Information
The Top 3 Reasons to Buy VMware Today According to Motley Fool

The Motley Fool just posted an article explaining to financial folks why they should be buying VMware stock.  In it, they try to explain to the common folks who probably aren't virtualizing anything, rather, spending money as they watch the ticker go by on the big board. 

They explain that "virtual machines are sweeping through data centers the world over, simplifying hardware setups and bringing down power consumption and management costs in their wake."

We know that, but I suppose the question is, does the rest of the non-virtualizing world?  Do they get that?  Do they need to?  Or do they just need to be told that VMware stock is hot and cheap, and that the company controls most of the market that it plays in with a dominating lead.

VMware stock may have lost 70% of its value, and underperformed in a down turn market... but the Fool says there is a buying opportunity right now in VMware.

It talks about VMware's market growth opportunity.  Virtualization software hasn't stopped growing, so why would VMware?  The area still has plenty of growth potential over the next few years.  They also like their business model and the fact that VMware has such a big lead over its competition.  And what about the market size?  And not just software sales, but what about VMware's services? 

"There's much more to this exciting growth story: eco-friendly features at a time of green thinking, enthusiastic support from the chip makers, the whole cloud computing trend, and much more. To top it off, management just renewed its view of 42% revenue growth or better in 2008 despite the wacky economy. Imagine what this stock could do in a good year."

And they leave you with the same thing I remember from college: buy low, sell high.  If you remember nothing else, remember that.  ;)
