RUMOR: EMC & HP Merger or acquisition?

This was discussed all over the internet last year, but the two couldn't see eye to eye on value.

Well the rumor mill is back again. Some say mergers, some say outright buyout of EMC from HP.

With HP splitting itself into HP Enterprise, and a PCs and printers business called HP Inc, HP CEO Meg Whitman will become boss of HP Enterprise. Its valuation will be less than that of the current HP, which today stands at $59.92bn. EMC is capped at $59.2bn.

We could crudely see HP Enterprise being worth half of the current HP; roughly $15bn. That ought to make valuation less of a problem in any merger talks.
