Dell and Walmart have been in news combinedly for some time now. You know what? Dell wants Walmart to sell computers for them. I don’t like this . Cramer likes Walmart now coz they are expanding to Asia. People on Fast money like Walmart too…I love walmart though it doesn’t really make fast money. But this deal does not speak good of Dell. This would hurt them more than it would benefit!!! Ouch
People assume ‘Walmart’ as the Poor Man’s ‘Target’ with their everyday low prices tag. It is kind of like JC Penny for Macy’s. Kinda wierd comparision but almost near I guess. Would you like to go to Target or Walmart when your girl friend asks you somethign? These days kids do not want to go to Walmart, they love to go to Target. I know computers are not too much with kids, but why is dell going to a retailer?? Walmart is great, they have great deals they are like the biggest diversified super market, but doesn’t really impress me with computers. Dell could have gone to some Computer guys, Best buy , Circuit city, office depot, Fry’s, oh man there are so many!!!!!!! This deal is just going to STOMP DELL with a tag – cheap brand.
Once Dell gets that poor man’s brand sticker on it, no body would want to put them in their living rooms!!!!!!! What would you prefer showing a Kia Rio to your neighbour or a 2008 Mustang/Corvette? It’s the same here. It’s all the brand name and the tag you attach to it. may be they’ll increase their revenue initially, but later on this is going to effect them big. This is my thinking. Appreciate your comments.
