DELL data by YCharts
Dell (DELL) Background: Dell is a premier provider of products and services required for customers worldwide to build their information-technology and Internet infrastructures. Dell trades an average of 24 million shares per day with a market cap of $18.7 billion. 52-Week High: $18.36 52-Week Low: $10.48 Book Value: $5.62 Eleven analysts recommend this as a buy and one recommend selling. The average analyst target price for Dell is $14.50. The mean fiscal year estimate price-to-earnings ratio is 6.1, based on earnings of $1.75 per share this year. Fundamentally, 6.1 is a very low and generally reserved for companies about to "check out." Dell, in my opinion, is far from checking out, and for investors willing to hold longer term, this is perhaps one of the better value buys I have seen this year. In the last month, the stock has really taken a turn for the worse. Shares have crumbled 14.3% in the last month of trading. Dell is oversold with multiple technical market timing buy indications. Currently, the short interest based on the float is small and not a big concern. Short interest is 3%. DELL Free Cash Flow data by YCharts
