Comments on: Analysts Envisage a Dell Palm Acquisition
ComputerWorld appears to have used a great deal of industry analyst chatter combined with a large dose of speculation for their report, entitled "Dell buy of Palm would make sense, say analysts". If only sheer unfounded speculation, such a report seems certain to result in a bump of Palm's stock price and a slew of related speculative pieces. Additionally, the ComputerWorld piece quotes heavily from last week's Dow Jones report that Palm could be a good candidate to jumpstart Dell's reportedly underwhelming smartphone efforts. One analyst quoted in the article if Yankee Group Research's Carl Howe: "Palm is vulnerable and Dell has cash. A merger sounds like a good idea".
