Dell (NASDAQ:DELL): Closing price $13.63

Southeastern Asset Management’s decision to oppose the $24.4 billion buyout of Dell led by Chief executive Michael Dell is supported by major shareholders Harris Associates, Yacktman Asset Management, and Pzena Investment Management, which among them hold around 3.3 percent in the company, according to a knowledgeable source. While Harris and Yacktman were not immediately available for comment, Chairman Richard Pzena, of Pzena Investment, said that a Dell purchase should be in the ballpark of $20 per share or Dell should look at other options.
