Dell, Going Private, Beats Street
Computing giant Dell just reported profits that beat the expectations of analysts, and it may be its last public earnings report. Dell reported earnings of 40 cents per share on sales of $14.3 billion, better than the consensus view of 39 cents a share on sales of $14.12 billion. Dell shares rose by 4 cents, or about 0.3 percent, to $13.85 after hours as the news crossed the wires. The company is still in the process of trying to transform itself from the PC-heavy company to an enterprise-focused company emphasizing servers, software and services.
