Cramer Quick Take: Dell Is a Dead Stock

Check out Jim Cramer's latest trading recommendations on "Action Alerts Plus".


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Has Dell ( DELL) been left for dead by the smartphone and tablet revolution?

Jim Cramer told Debra Borchardt at TheStreet.com Thursday that the answer to that question is, largely, yes.

Cramer said Dell is part of the overall death of the traditional PC. He said many of the tasks once done on a personal computer are now being done on our phones and tablets, meaning we simply need fewer PCs. Just as the market transitioned from mainframes to PCs, its now moving from PCs to mobile.

Cramer noted that Intel ( INTC) saw its numbers cut and hard-drive maker Seagate ( STX) was received a downgrade, a signal the entire sector is on the decline.

Speculate if you must, said Cramer, but without significant gains in market share, Dell will be dead money.
