Pro Traders: VMWare Results Bode Well for These Other Stocks

In the wake of earnings from VMWare , trader Joe Terranova suggests putting rival Citrix on the radar. "It hasn't traded well but I think it gets a boost from VM's numbers."

Also he thinks Microsoft and Amazon could benefit. "They also compete in the space," he says.

Looking at those numbers, VMWare reported second-quarter profit, excluding items, of 55 cents per share, beating the average Wall Street forecast of 47 cents, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Revenue climbed 37 percent from a year earlier to $921 million, beating analysts' projection for $873 million.

VMware shares rose to their highest in more than a year, $110.70, in extended trade, from their New York Stock Exchange close of $106.02.

"Estimates on the Street are as high as $125 for VMWare," adds Terranova, "and I think it could go there."

In the same space, trader Stephen Weiss is bullish EMC. “I think the stock is cheap and I’m a buyer.”
