EMC (EMC - Get Report) is given a $29 price target, a 29% premium, by Goldman analysts. The company is known as a data-hardware and software server specialist but its greatest opportunity may be seen in the growth of cloud computing or the use of over-the-Internet data storage.

EMC's shares have a five-year average annual return of 10.8%.
