According to some people here, and disgruntled insitituitional stockholders like Southeastern and T. Rowe Price, , Dell stock is worth $16, $20, even $24 per share.
If Dell is worth so much, why have no buyout offers emerged higher than the current $13.65 offer?
You seem more intelligent than the header of your post suggests so I will actually reply.
As you know, this isn't about buy-out offers so much as it is about PR and attention to this deal. And Dell et al are getting killed in the PR realm with each penny this rises above their offer.
It is as simple as that. And that don't require more than high school ed to figure out. So stop posting stupid comments when your grammar and writing suggest you are smarter than stupid.
Here on this board people have written that Mike Dell is a "thief out to steal your shares''. Southeastern Management has stated that Mr. Dell's LBO team offer of $13.65 is "grossly inadequate".
In light of these accusations and claims I must ask again the simple question. Why have no offers emerged for a higher price than $13.65.
Mike Dell is a businessman trying to maximize his gain which is what is expected. But Bashfart is a opaque little weasel ,about as clever as a rock. I expect DELL to have a better offer before the vote. If not the stockholders may be along for the ride on the restructure. Your capital will be tied up but there may be a big payday in the future.
All Mr.Dell is capable of doing is copying what others already have done.
He should have sold PCs bussines like IBM had done it to Lenovo and recently also HP.
Mr. Dell is "Johnny come Lately" He's got to go .....give him 13.65 per share and Adios !
Sell what there is to be sold ... and focus on whats profitable.
