The Best (And Worst) 1Q Technology Stocks


Dell

CEO: Michael Dell

Dec. 31, 2012: $10.14
Mar. 28, 2013: $14.33
Change: 41.3%

Dell shares fell nearly 31 percent in 2012, which apparently made it an attractive price for management to look at a leveraged buyout. Since reports of a go-private deal first started circulating, Dell's stock has increased. It closed the quarter above the proposed $13.65 price from Silver Lake Partners as investors believe the final purchase price will go higher.
