EMC (NYSE:EMC) is scheduled to report their results after the market closes on April20, 2010. EMC expects a faster growth in 2010, with consolidated EMC revenue amounting to $16 billion and non-GAAP EPS of $1.12. The growth is mostly attributable to a very strong product line-up and product cycle.

EMC Corporation and its subsidiaries design, manufacture, market and support a wide range of hardware and software products and provide services for the storage, management, protection and sharing ofelectronic information. These integrated solutions enable organizations tocreate an enterprise information infrastructure, or what EMC calls anE-Infostructure. EMC is the leading supplier of these solutions, which comprise information storage systems, software and services.

EMC showed good progress through 2009 and end of the year with very solid growth in Q4 with revenues of $4.1 billion up 17% from Q3 2009. Non-GAAP EPS of $0.33, up 43% and free cash flow of $793 million, up 6%. Within these results, the EMC infrastructure business had a good Q4 with $3.5 billion in revenue, up 15% sequentially and $0.28 of non-GAAP EPS, up 40% from Q3. On a year-over-year basis, non-GAAP EPS was up 12% on flat revenue, a result that clearly shows the success of our cost translation efforts.  As previously announced VMware also had a strong Q4 contributing $607 million of revenue and was $0.05 of non-GAAP EPS of EMC and showed very good growth from Q3. Given the tough global economic conditions and an IT spending environment down across the board, EMC performed well moving through 2009. All in all, Q4 revenues, Q4 non-GAAP operating margin, Q4 non-GAAP EPS, and Q4 free cash flow results were all records for EMC

Analysts' estimates for Q1 2010 range from a low of $0.14 to a high of $0.29, compared to a consensus estimate of $0.24, with number of estimates being 38 and the co-efficient variance 10.82. As of July 22, 2009, EMC had acquired approximately 94.2% interest in Data Domain, Inc. (Data Domain). In August 2009, EMC acquired FastScale Technology, Inc., a provider of software platforms and solutions for enterprise IT. EMC announced in January that it would Acquire Archer Technologies, a leading Provider of IT Governance Risk and Compliance Software. The combination of EMC's: ownership in VMware, addition of Data Domain's high growth/margin product line, and EMC's strong core product lines should lead to double-digit growth with margin expansion and cash generation abilities above the broader tech group. 2009 finished with improved stability and visibility in IT budgets and should provide a path for continued improvement throughout 2010.

The stock closed at $18.40 on April 8, 2022 and analysts have rated the stock as an Overweight with the price target being $21. Although the latest CIO survey provides some caution with spending expectations pushed to 2H10, EMC's large footprint should increase growth rates in DDUP's product line, which combined with increasing V-Max adoption rates in cloud infrastructures should help drive double-digit top line growth in C10 and drive share price. Other catalysts include: 1) Refreshed product line, 2) Revenue and cost synergies post Data Domain acquisition.

    • RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi authorities said Friday they arrested 149 al-Qaida suspects in a months-long sweep and thwarted attacks inside the kingdom on government officials, media personalities and civilian targets.
    • Saudi Arabia's anti-terror campaign has largely crushed al-Qaida's operations in the kingdom since a series of attacks there that began in 2003.

        • POCHEP, Russia - Russia will miss a 2012 deadline for destroying all of its chemical weapons, officials said Friday as they inaugurated a major new plant to dispose of them.
        • Pochep will process nearly 19 percent of Russia's stockpile, or 7,500 tons of nerve agent used in aircraft-delivered munitions.
        • The plant, hidden in a dense birch forest, is key for Russia's commitment to destroy all of its chemical weapons by April 2012 as Russia deals with its vast arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.
          • Pakistan foils capital bomb plot; missiles kill 3 Nov 26, 2021 09:58 AM

            • ISLAMABAD - Police arrested two would-be suicide bombers planning to attack a mosque and a government building in Pakistan's capital Friday, as local officials said another suspected U.S. missile strike near the Afghan border killed three alleged insurgents.
            • The military has responded by launching offensives in the remote northwest where the insurgents are based, and the U.S. has increased its barrage of missile attacks on those strongholds out of reach of the Pakistani army.
            • Police officer Bin Yamin said the detained men were linked to the Pakistani Taliban in the South Waziristan region, where the army has been fighting the militants since last year.

                • The fresh artillery blasts were especially defiant because they came as the U.S. commander in South Korea, Gen. Walter Sharp, toured the South Korean island to survey damage from Tuesday's hail of North Korean artillery fire that killed four people.
                • None of the latest rounds hit the South's territory, and U.S. military officials said Sharp did not even hear the concussions, though residents on other parts of the island panicked and ran back to the air raid shelters where they huddled earlier in the week as white smoke rose from North Korean territory.
