I believe the saying is"believe nothing you read and only half of what you see" Dell knows he trying to get this company at half price and if he has too he will cut just enough people in to get it. But a long memory will keep a lot of people from ever trusting him again.
It is not a done deal, it still depends on how the hedge funds that recently bought the stock vote.
It is all a scam. I was watching a documentary on the great depression and the brokers would use the news media to manipulate stocks. I would not be surprised if half the articles you read on web from the main sites were not written by some paid shills. The SEC might even be paid off to go after insider trading like Martha Stewart while the real crooks collude together. All the interest of the LBO comes out before corporate income tax so I am sure they will get the whole thing for free. Dell will even come out like a hero as he saved the company took it private, improved it, and Re IPOed it. SEC sits there like a bunch of dopes.
