NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I've never been the type to boast about value for stocks that are trading at or near their 52-week highs, but in the case of NetApp (NTAP - Get Report), I'm willing to make an exception.What the Street has begun to realize is that even though NetApp has often played second fiddle to market leader EMC (EMC), the storage market is still up for grabs. With industry experts projecting that market to grow by close to 200% over the next three years, logic says that NetApp should do well even if the company remains in second place. But don't confuse that for complacency. If my suspicions are correct, this company has much bigger ambitions.
