Dell Buyout Will Burn Microsoft Investors

While there has been talk recently about Dell's (UNKNOWN: DELL.DL  ) interest in going private, news that Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) may want to play some part in a potential Dell buyout has shares of Dell up again today, putting it above 25% in the past month. In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner talks about whether such a move would make sense for Microsoft in its ultimate goal to become more relevant in the next generation of computing devices, such as mobile devices and tablets.

It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade. However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market. In this brand-new premium report on Microsoft, our analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, the challenges are many. He's also providing regular updates as key events occur, so make sure to claim a copy of this report now by clicking here.

    If Microsoft can recieve a good rate (6%+) of return on some of their cash hoard especially that part parked overseas without paying US 35% taxes then it would be a great deal for Dell and Microsoft investors. I don;t think MS is really interested in owning part of Dell's real business problems.
