"Dell grabbed the lead in unit sales from H-P in 2003, but H-P has rebounded — taking 16.3% of world-wide shipments in the third period, edging out Dell’s 16.1% share, Gartner Inc. said.
IDC, which includes some types of systems that Gartner doesn’t, put both companies at 17.2% of the market, though it said H-P’s shipments were slightly higher than Dell’s.
Dell remains well ahead of H-P in U.S. sales, the two firms said. But they added that H-P has had stronger momentum lately, in part because it is more focused on the fast-expanding consumer market than Dell, which has focused more on corporate sales."
If the Dell mess gets any worse, I may have to take a seriously contrary look at where the downtrend would get broken, and consider the stock as a long value candidate.
A fast eyballing of the chart suggests any move above 26 on volume would present an intriguing technical picture. But I suspect its still a little early to get too excited about Dell’s "turnaround."
Amazing. How the mighty have fallen.
