Dell: The True Hollywood Story

Heavens to Murgatroyd! What’s wrong with Dell (DELL) now? I still like Dell, but warnings like this aren’t making it easy.
After the bell, Dell just said that its earnings will be around 39 cents a share, which is at the low-end of expectations. No one ever really means to come in at the low-end of expectations. This is bad. Dell also said that sales will come in at $13.9 billion, which is below the low-end of their previous guidance of $14.1 million to $14.5 million.
Dell said it will also take a charge of 14 cents a share. I really don’t need this. The stock is down in after-hours trading. Dell will report earnings next Thursday.
