Oppenheimer lowers its price target on VMware (NYSE: VMW) from $110 to $100 but keeps its Outperform rating following solid Q4 results but weak outlook.

Analyst Shaul Eyal comments, "VMW delivered a solid 4Q12 but issued a below-Street FY13 outlook, and announced a two-tiered realignment plan to allocate necessary resources to core areas such as SDDC, cloud, and end-user computing while de-emphasizing non-core (i.e. SlideRocket). New management believes it's the right time for this two-tiered alignment to capture long-term growth. This, coupled with below-consensus guidance for FY13, could leave investors with a sour taste in their mouths. We'd buy the shares after the smoke clears as we still see room for top-line/EPS growth given conservative guidance."
