6 Reasons Dell Should Go Private


Timing

Dell's shares declined 30 percent in 2012, among the worst performers among top technology vendor stocks tracked quarterly by CRN. That might make it more attractive to potential buyers right now, who wouldn't want to wait for the stock price (and the buyout cost) to jump. Granted, Dell reportedly has about $5 billion in cash in the bank, but a quicker sale could also give Dell faster access to cash it needs to fuel its own acquisition targets.
