VMware (NYSE:VMW) shares have crossed bullishly above their 10-day moving average of $72.08 on a volume of 806K shares. This may provide swing traders with an opportunity for a long position, as such a crossover often suggests higher prices in the near term.

VMware Inc. develops virtual infrastructure solutions. The Company's products include vManage, which manages virtual infrastructure, vPlatform, a uniform platform for information technology infrastructure, and vTools, a virtual infrastructure integration tool.

Over the past year, VMware has traded in a range of $70.05 to $115.00 and is now at $72.98, 4% above that low. The 200-day and 50-day moving averages have moved 0.28% lower and 0.26% lower over the past week, respectively.

There is potential upside of 34.7% for shares of VMware based on a current price of $72.98 and an average consensus analyst price target of $98.32. The stock should run into initial resistance at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $75.78 and subsequent resistance at its 200-day MA of $86.95.
