Is Dell Stock a Bargain … or Busted?

Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ) recently made waves with its poorly received analyst conference that laid out a painfully slow five-year turnaround plan. Shares slumped by double-digits this week to put HP stock down over 40% on the year.

But it’s not the only tech stock that has been beaten down and seeing trouble in a post-PC age. Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) is in deep trouble too, with DELL stock down over 30% year-to-date on poor earnings and weak guidance, and big-time chipmaker Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is about 7% in the red thanks in part to the struggles of computer stocks like Dell and HP in a mobile age.

So are these tech stocks cooked? Is Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) your only alternative among tech stocks?

I talked with Eddy Elfenbein,  the editor of Crossing Wall Street and a member of the Stock Twits network. Ed’s free Buy List has beaten the S&P 500 for the last five years in a row — and according to him, Dell stock boasts a nice dividend and well-run operations.

That means Dell stock could be a value play… Just not yet.
