Currently Dell is $50 BILLION and more revenue company, and is forcast to reach $80 BILLION
Wakeup appleheads, dell sells more than just music players..
FActs hurts little shorts, that is why I like posting them.
LOL.......BP__CR, I almost have to disagree with you.
The idiot savant would listen a little more intently.
Grizzly/TechGuru is a talking parrot. He needs to focus on getting the mites out of his feathers rather than babbling -- $50 Billion, $50 Billion, $50 Billion......going to $80 Billion......BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH
Arguing with you is like talking to an idiot savant. Who cares what profits did in the last 3 years? That's yesterday's news. Profits will not double in the next 3 years. Profits will not be 50% higher in 3 years and not even 25% higher.
Dell is in a lose/lose situation, competing against the Chinese and other capable competitors in the high volume, low price PC segment. And their cost structure will not allow them to compete effectively for too much longer. Lenovo and other Asian competitors are going to eat their lunch.
Mark my words.
U R a dip
Think before you post, you single digit IQ moron. Go back to driveling about how Dell will be $80 billion in revenues. Even if they hit $80 billion in revenues their overall profit level will remain unchanged (or be somewhat lower) than 2005 levels.
Still waiting for a intelligent answer -- saying "$80 Billion" and seeing "$80 Billion" is fact vs. fantasy.
Just because you say you're going to win the lottery, doesn't mean you will.
Please provide an answer with solid facts of how Dell will accomplish the $80 Billion dream......it's losing market share & the profits are starting to follow the same path.
Not to mention, Dell's overhead is starting to get rather large -- think about all of these great new factories & tech-support centers.......these facilities aren't free.
Guru just cuts and pastes all the drivel both here and on the AAPL board; he will not answer you directly because he is incapable of intelligent discussion.
The incremental $30 billion in revenues is a pipe dream; Dell will be lucky to hold as a $50 billion revenue company with shrinking margins.
I'm thinking about buying some 12 month puts in the $27/28 range. I think that should be a pretty good investment.
You've avoided the question -- does that mean you have no confidence in Dell's future either? At least on its current course?
You've repeated yourself like the "Rainman" enough times.......$50 Billion (KMart, People's Court)......soon $80 Billion......
Where's the additional $30 Billion coming from? A silver platter?
It's definitely not coming from pricing or innovation.
MSFT has 10+ billion shares
GE around 11 billion
PFE 7+ billion shares
CSCO 6+ billion
TWX 4+ billion
ORCL 5+ billion
SUNW 3+ billion
LU 4+ billion
NT 4+ billion shares
Dell has only 2+ billion shares (VERY GOOD)
Dell no longer has a source of competitive advantage. They are trying to expand into lower volume, higher price/margin PC's (XPS line) but I still don't think they have solved the quality problems or poor customer service issues.
Best of luck Dell you're going to need it.
I would bet anyone on this board that Dell stock will stay in the $30 range (or lower) unless they have a radical shift in strategy.
