    NEW YORK (AP) – Shares of VMware Inc. climbed Wednesday, a day after the virtualization software company posted robust first-quarter profits and said it expects revenue to grow 55 percent in the second quarter.

    The stock rose $2.82, or 4.9 percent, to close at $60.84.

    BMO Capital Markets analyst Keith Bachman said in a note to investors that VMware’s results remove "a wall of worry," given investors’ anxiety ahead of the results. Bachman noted that the company’s $438 million in revenue beat his estimates of $425 million, and said he expected continued results from the company’s service segment.
