EMC skepticism

HOPKINTON

Some stockholders are worried that Hopkinton-based EMC Corp.'s remarkable earnings growth may be beginning to slow. They're also wondering about EMC's acquisition of RSA Security Inc.

The Globe's Steven Syre says in his Boston Capital column today that RSA was a very expensive acquisitionm, but EMC executives believe it will give them a competitive edge. Syre predicts EMC shares won't go far, though, until the company shows some results.
