Dell At A Crossroads: 7 Earnings Takeaways


Go Private

Dell's financials make a strong case for the company to go private, say analysts.

"These numbers show exactly why Michael Dell wants to take his company private," said Roger Kay, principal analyst at Endpoint Technologies Associates. With its legacy PC business in decline and its enterprise solutions business up, said Kay, it bolsters Michael Dell's case that the company needs to be able to focus on new business and not the legacy PC business.

Kay and other analysts say Michael Dell needs to be able to focus less on the short game of primping itself up every quarter for Wall Street investors, and worry more about the long game of reinvesting capital in areas of potential strong growth.
