Deutsche Bank downgraded VMware (NYSE: VMW) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $80.00 (from $110.00). Analyst Nandan Amladi sees a continued slowdown in license billings and execution risk. He also thinks VMware is facing a tougher competitive landscape.

"Its core vSphere business continues to face pricing pressures from Hyper-V, we are also hearing of OpenStack driving up adoption of KVM and Xen. Although early, OpenStack has captured a fair amount of customer mindshare, and could be a threat to VMware's vCloud suite of products. Our checks also indicate a fair amount of customer interest in MSFT's System Center, and could negatively impact VMware," said Amladi.
