Cloud Stock About to Descend Even Lower

VMware (VMW[1]) — This was on our list of Stocks to Sell in April[2], where I said: “Sell VMW short at $78 or higher with a target of $65. Stop-loss orders should be entered at $86.”

On April 22, the Trade of the Day[3] said, “Earnings are scheduled to be reported [April 23], and analysts are looking for $0.70 per share on revenues of $1.18 billion. A failure to meet this estimate could drive VMW much lower, but for those who shorted the stock, covering now for a small profit may be a wise decision.”

VMW failed again to meet analysts’ expectations, missing both its own sales forecast and analysts’ earnings estimates.

Since then, the stock has attempted to form a bottom at $70, but on Monday, broke a triple-bottom and appears headed to $60 or lower. Sell VMW short at $68 or higher with a stop-loss order at $75.
