No. 2 - Hottest IPO Of The Second Half?

We already told you that the CEO of Whole Foodslikes to go around pretending to be someone else. But what if your PC wants to be a Mac, or your Linux system wants to run Microsoft Windows? Believe it or not, there's a huge demand for computers to do precisely that  - and it could result in the hottest IPO in the second half of the year.

Guy Adami says it's EMC Corp. (EMC) for its VMware spin-off.

He explains software companies are experiencing server sprawl (kind of like urban sprawl for computers.) Virtualization software provided by VMware reduces the amount of servers a company needs.

Guy expects this to be the biggest boon in technology in the last 10 years. He says this will change the way things are done and could affect companies that sell servers.

Guy predicts that EMC will go up to a $23 - $24 handle. (It’s worth noting on July 12th the stock closed at $19.25)

Jeff Macke tells the panel he’s long EMC and Pete adds he thinks EMC is the best stock of all the “back-end” names.
