VMware provided a rather cautious picture with its recent earnings announcement, despite posting 22 percent increase in its revenue for the year. Its total revenue stood at $4.6 billion. At the very same time, its rate of growth decreased from 32 percent as opposed to what it had recorded for the previous period. The company now plans to cut its workforce to curtail costs. VMware is planning to slash its workforce by 900 which will help it to boost its margins.

The stock lost 20 percent of its value so far this year. The company's new measures to restore its viability are likely to have a positive impact on its stock price. VMware plans to grow through acquisitions as well, adding new products and markets to its portfolio. The company's management seeks to grow its revenue to the $10 billion mark in a couple of years. VMware Inc. offers a good long-term investment opportunity.

Infosys Posts Strong Results

Infosys is up 20 percent on a YTD basis but the stock still seems to have steam left. The stock surged following its strong result announcement in January. Infosys is holding onto its margins as the company chases premium contracts. Its management is averse to cutting costs in a bid to receive contracts which may impact on its volume but will augment profits. The company commands premium over its peers.

Infosys reported 6.3 percent growth in its revenue for the quarter to $1.911 billion. Its net income per share stood at 76 cents, beating consensus estimate of 72 cents per share in income. While the company is on steady ground, to show further growth in its stock price Infosys Ltd. needs to bring some zest to its performance metrics. The company shows linear growth where its revenue increase directly correlates with its headcount. This also means that the company so far had been unable to push its person efficiency upwards. This is completely in contrast with its more established international competitors. With the impending increase in corporate IT budget, Infosys seems to be all set, but it also needs to address its efficiency and diversification issues.
