  + stars: | 2024-05-30 | by ( Kif Leswing | ) www.cnbc.com   time to read: +2 min
Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies, is speaking at the Mobile World Congress 2024 in Barcelona, Spain, on February 27, 2024. Dell reported first-quarter earnings on Thursday that beat analyst estimates for earnings and sales, as the company has emerged as one of the top vendors for AI servers. When the company reported earnings in February, it reported earnings per share that were significantly higher than expectations. Dell reported $955 million in net income during the quarter, or $1.32 per diluted share, versus $578 million, or 79 cents, in the year-ago period. Dell's division including data center sales, called Infrastructure Solutions Group, saw sales rise 22% on an annual basis to $9.2 billion.

"They can't do any more to Boeing," Cramer said. When you go after a person, that's jail time, and that's how you fix things, unfortunately. Wells Fargo raised its price target on Toll Brothers to $150 per share from $142 ahead of next week's earnings. "It is the key to the market," Cramer said, before pointing to a Dell stock chart and circling the day of Nvidia 's GTC conference. Cramer added, "You've got to go to Dell, and that's been off to the races ever since then."

Dell is seeing accelerating momentum, especially in winning business to build AI servers, unlocking a new bull case for the stock, Morgan Stanley analyst Erik Woodring wrote in a note on Wednesday. "All-in, we are hearing about more AI server momentum at Dell than at any other OEM," Woodring wrote, saying that he expected about $10 billion of AI server revenue in the company's fiscal 2025 — ending next February. Most AI servers are built around Nvidia's chips which have become prized in the technology industry because they are used to build and deploy advanced AI models from companies like Google , OpenAI and Meta . Dell sells servers using the newest Nvidia AI chips, including its H100 GPU and the latest Blackwell-generation chips. But the PC industry is on course to grow again and is outperforming lowered expectations, Woodring wrote, which will benefit Dell.

Dell started monitoring attendance on May 6 and will make the data visible on each hybrid employee's profile on HR platform Workday this week. Dell's memo states: "As the next step in implementing our Hybrid Work Policy, we will track onsite presence using badge swipes for hybrid-designated team members." The color by their name will be considered for performance evaluations, rewards, and compensation, Dell told employees. Staff who opted to remain remote during the company's overhaul of its hybrid work policy, which was first announced in February, will not be monitored.

Read previewThe release of Forbes' annual rundown of the world's billionaires has underlined a glaring omission from the Bloomberg Billionaires Index: Michael Bloomberg himself. Forbes ranked the 82-year-old Bloomberg LP founder in 12th place with an estimated $106 billion fortune as of March 8. Based on Forbes' wealth estimate, Bloomberg would be in joint 12th position with Michael Dell (also $106 billion) as of Thursday. Related storiesThe Bloomberg Index's methodology explains why the boss is missing: "Bloomberg News editorial policy is to not cover Bloomberg LP. As a result, Michael Bloomberg, the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, isn't considered for this ranking."

That's what Nvidia needed semiconductor design firm Synopsys to do to make this next generation of chips. Right now, Nvidia has had not one, but two different breakthroughs: Accelerated computing at a ridiculously fast speed and generative artificial intelligence. I think Jensen regards Dell as a crucial partner when it comes to installing Nvidia's systems anywhere. Do I think Nvidia would like to do more business with Apple? I think Nvidia would like to do more business with everyone, including alleged opponent Intel .

Jensen Huang declared the start of the "super-chip" era on Monday. The Nvidia CEO ushered in a new phase for his sector by unveiling a new breed of chips to power AI. And promises to power AI models on the trillion-parameter scale instead of the multi-billion-parameter scale of models like Meta's Llama 2. — Pedro Domingos (@pmddomingos) March 18, 2024It indicates just how much more buzz Nvidia hopes to generate in its "super-chip" era. Huang is clear though that the "super-chip" era is here.

Zuckerberg's moves appear to be part of a 10b5-1 stock sale plan adopted last summer. An even larger stock sale came from Michael Dell, the CEO and namesake of Dell Technologies . The tech founder has filed a Form 144 to sell 7 million shares, so more transactions could be coming, according to VerityData.

Dell is having its best day since founder Michael Dell brought the company back to the stock market in 2018. Shares of the PC and server manufacturer surged 30% on Friday to $121.88, after the company posted fiscal fourth-quarter results that beat estimates. For the latest quarter, Dell reported revenue of $22.32 billion, down 11% from the year-ago quarter but eclipsing the $22.16 billion analysts were expecting, according to LSEG, formerly known as Refinitiv. "The strength of AI server orders, backlog, pipeline, and expanding CSP/enterprise customer base show DELL's AI story is early days and gaining momentum," they wrote. Wells Fargo, citing Dell's AI strength and dividend increase, hiked its price target to $140 and maintained an overweight rating, while Citi increased its target price to $125 and reiterated a buy rating.

By Anirban Sen(Reuters) - Merchant bank BDT & MSD Partners, the owner of Alliance Laundry Systems, is exploring a sale of the U.S. laundry equipment manufacturer that could value it at nearly $5 billion, including debt, according to people familiar with the matter. BDT & MSD Partners, Alliance Laundry, and Morgan Stanley declined to comment. It supplies laundry systems to U.S. military facilities, laundromat chains, hotels, long-term healthcare facilities and clinics, restaurants, fire stations, residential apartments, and other businesses across sectors. In 2015, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan sold its majority stake in Ripon, Wisconsin-based Alliance Laundry to BDT Capital Partners, prior to its merger with MSD Partners. BDT & MSD Partners is run by former Goldman Sachs alumni Trott and Gregg Lemkau.

Musk appeared to give Tesla's board an ultimatum on Monday, saying he wants 25% voting control at Tesla or he'll stop growing AI development at the electric-car maker. One way of getting that would be via a dual-class stock structure. This isn't uncommon and could mean Musk wouldn't necessarily get more shares but that the ones he held would deliver more voting power. The company's dual-class stock structure provides Zuckerberg and select executive managers and directors with them. "Zuckerberg probably wouldn't have gone public without a dual-class structure," White said.

In addition to its rosy earnings report for the latest quarter, Dell increased its forecast for the year.

Major League Baseball was the first to open its coffers to private-investment funds in 2019; a slew of other leagues followed, including the National Basketball Association, Major League Soccer and the National Hockey League. A big participant in that is Sixth Street Partners, a $74 billion behemoth, known historically for its direct lending and growth prowess, and has been making big inroads in the sports world in recent years, with several billion dollars' worth of investments. The firm recently co-founded Bay FC, part of the National Women's Soccer League, alongside several retired players, as well as Sheryl Sandberg. Sixth Street also made investments in FC Barcelona's LaLiga TV broadcasting rights and a majority investment in Legends, a sports and entertainment experiences company. In June 2021, Sixth Street led a strategic investment with Michael Dell in the San Antonio Spurs basketball team.
