NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Almost every day the headlines read "The PC is Dead." I want to add "...and so is Dell (DELL)." This stock shows that professional investors are sometimes wrong about the investment quality of a stock.As I have said, for a stock to be a long-term investment that has a place in a conservative retirement account, it should have a forecast of at least 10% increases in revenue, earnings and total return. Anything else is a speculative situation that should be traded on technical analysis. Let's look at what I mean.
