Dell’s Thursday Vote Too Close to Call and 2 Other Hot Stocks to Watch

Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL): Current price $13

Dell shareholders will vote Thursday on whether they should accept the Michael Dell and Silver Lake $24.4 billion offer for the company, but how the vote might go remains too close to call. Even with pressure from Carl Icahn, Michael Dell has thus far flatly refused to hike his bid for his firm, which would pay shareholders $13.65 per share. Last week, Michael Dell’s proposal got a big boost when influential shareholder advisory firm Institutional Shareholder Services recommended that shareholders approve his bid, but the endorsement can only go so far.

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO): Current price $27.24

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has said that it would unseal documents in connection with a case years earlier, which indicated Yahoo! objected to being part of PRISM, the National Security Agency’s surveillance program. Arik Hessldahl in AllThingsD reports that the three-page order from the FISA court requires that the government review the case, and specify which documents from the docket may be declassified by July 29. Government attorneys took “no position” on whether the documents should be disclosed, according to the order.
