Dude, You're (NOT) Getting a Dell

A Dell (NASDAQ DELL) earnings report, that is. The formerly #1 computer maker will be delaying their report, originally scheduled for this afternoon, citing their ongoing SEC investigation. HP (NYSE HPQ) is still on for their announcement after today's bell.

It's starting to seem like a long time ago when Dell's PC business seemed invincible, and the company boldly ventured into the printing arena. Their stated intent was to disrupt HP in those markets, and hurt that company's ability to fund a losing computer business with their large printer and supplies profits.

Things do change!

Dell is such a mess these days. It just seems to me that their management has their heads elsewhere nowadays. It also doesn't help that HP is blowing them away in the PC market.
