GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

VMWare Inc provides virtualization infrastructure solutions utilized by organizations. It has three product areas: Software-Defined Data Center, End-User Computing, and Hybrid Cloud Computing.

VMWare Inc was incorporated as a Delaware corporation in 1998. The Company provides virtualization infrastructure solutions. The Company develops and markets its product and service offerings within three main product groups: SDDC or Software-Defined Data Center, End-User Computing, and Hybrid Cloud Computing. It offers development and application of virtualization technologies with x86 server-based computing, separating application software from the underlying hardware. The SDDC architecture consists of four main product categories: Compute, Storage and Availability, Network and Security, Management and Automation. Its vCloud Hybrid Service, built on the foundation of VMware's vSphere, is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud operated by them, that provides customers with a common platform to seamlessly extend their data center to the cloud. vCloud Hybrid Service enables customers to extend the same skills, tools, networking and security models across both on-premises and off-premises environments. Its VMware vCloud Service Provider Program, which is directed to hosting and cloud computing vendors, enables organizations to choose between running applications in virtual machines on their own "private clouds" inside their data center or on "public clouds" hosted by a service provider. ur VMware vCHS Business Ventures is a program developed to expand vCHS globally, by partnering and co-investing with telecommunication providers in order to enable a user experience consistent with VMware's owned and operated vCloud Hybrid Service. Services through the VMware vCHS Business Ventures program are expected to become available to users in 2014. The Company competes with vendors in different segments of the cloud computing, end-user computing and virtualization markets.

Guru Investment Theses on VMware Inc

Baron Funds Comments on VMware - Jan 27, 2016

Shares of VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW), one of the largest software infrastructure vendors in the world, continued to fall in the fourth quarter, declining 28%. The company is majority owned and controlled by EMC Corporation. During the quarter, EMC and Dell Inc. finalized EMC’s acquisition by Dell, which means that VMware will become a Dell-controlled company. Confusing messaging around the shift in business model under the new owner sent the stock to what we believe is a significant discount to VMw’s intrinsic value. After selling a significant portion of our position during the fourth quarter, we decided to pause thinking that sooner or later the market will appreciate the cash flow generation potential of this company and we will get a more gracious exit.



From the Baron Fifth Avenue Growth Fund Fourth Quarter 2015 Letter.
