VMware: RBC start coverage with sector perform rating

RBC Capital’s Thomas Curlin today launched coverage of VMware (VMW) with a Sector Perform rating and a $75 price target. Curlin sees the company generating revenue of $1.265 billion this year and $1.65 billion in 2008; he sees non-GAAP EPS of 52 cents this year and 84 cents next year. That implies the stock is trading at about 16 times expected 2008 revenue, and 82 times earnings, while growing the top line at 30%. So you can see why he is taking a cautious stance on the stock.

I’d note, though, that his 2008 outlook is more conservative than the Street consensus at $1.89 billion and 92 cents. (For this year, the consensus is $1.28 billion and 62 cents.) stock.
