The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion, with host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser, James Early, and Ron Gross.
In this segment, the worst-kept secret on Wall Street was made official this week. Dell (UNKNOWN:UNKNOWN) is being taken private in a $24.4B buyout. The deal is being financed by a combination of Michael Dell himself, as well as capital from private equity, debt financing from some big investment banks, and a $2B loan from Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). The guys discuss where this deal leaves Dell investors, and whether or not you should be scared if you own PC stocks.
The relevant video segment can be found between 14:22 and 16:21.
