    Dave Johnson (VP Corporate Strategy at Dell) moved to Blackstone in January. Responsible for all Dell acquisitions over past 3 years.

    A bid from Blackstone would make perfect sense. Dave Johnson moved from Dell to Blackstone in January. Seemed a starnge thing for Dell to lose him when he was master minding the re-engineering of the company and was responsible for all the acquisitions over the past 3years. However now looks possible that he moved to Blackstone to arrange a buyout. He would know the underlying value of all the acquisitions that Dell made over the past few years and their potential value in the future. Whilst he was at Dell he was responsible for acquistions worth about $10B and prior to Dell was head of acquisitions at IBM. Could be an interesting few days coming up.

    Sentiment: Buy
