EMC (NYSE:EMC), the Massachusetts representative in InvestorPlace’s Real America Index, isn’t your typical high-tech company just starting out and trying to conserve cash for growth. It has been around since 1979, went public in 1986 and has built a solid foundation. It also has just over $6 billion in cash, and another $6.4 billion in operating cash flow. That’s plenty of money to cover its well under $1 billion in capital spending. It also has recorded steady earnings and revenue growth over the last five-year period.
