Analyst comment:

"Following a detailed bottom up and top down analysis of EMC's Information Storage segment (74% of revenue in 2011), we raise our revenue estimates for the segment by 3%/4% for 2012/2013," Credit Suisse analysts wrote in a March 22 report. "This drives our EPS to $1.82/$2.17 (5%/10% above consensus). We see mid-to-high teens EPS growth as sustainable for several years, and note that this provides line of sight toward EPS of $3 in 2015. EMC remains a preferred IT hardware pick as our new $35 TP suggests 20% upside."
