Nearest Resistance: $12.50
Nearest Support: N/ACatalyst: H-P Sympathy Trade Computer maker Dell (DELL - Get Report) is seeing heavy trading today, becoming a sympathy trade after HP's results proved underwhelming. Stocks of a feather flock together, so it's no big surprise that the headwinds in the computer industry are pushing Dell town alongside its rival. Computers have become commoditized in recent years, as price matters more than brand ( Apple (AAPL) has been the sole exception). That's left PC makers all competing for lucrative enterprise dollars, a business that wasn't exactly without competition to begin with. >>5 Huge Stocks That Could Slingshot Higher Dell's 2.6% drop today isn't as bad as H-P's, but it's infinitely worse. The move sends shares down below the $11.50 level, a price that's acted as a sort of floor for shares for the last few weeks. That made DELL free to test new 52-week lows in today's session. If I owned Dell, I'd be selling.
