Red Hat Remains Aggressively Priced

After the close on Monday, Red Hat (RHT) announced Q2 earnings that met analyst estimates (assuming the removal of acquisition costs).

The company is a leading provider of open source software solutions, taking a community-powered approach to reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux, middleware, storage and virtualization technologies.
